We, like many others, were looking for a nice inn in Washington, VA for our stay when we ate at the Inn at Little Washington. Gay Street is a nice combination of an historic home with modern conveniences. It is located just a block or so (a nice walk after dinner) from the Inn at Little Washington. We enjoyed spending...

Gary and Wendy greeted us cheerfully and even sang a little welcome song for us. They have good reasons to take pride in their small, cozy and quiet B&B in a corner of quaint Washington, VA. Our room was spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated. A lavish breakfast was served in a sunny room with a lovely garden view. Located a... More

We stayed at the Gay Street Inn for a weekend getaway from Washington DC and we're glad we did. If you're aware of the food scene in the DC area you know that the Inn at Little Washington is a world-renowned Inn and restaurant in Washington, VA. Given it's price and months-ahead needed booking, we were looking for another place... More

This review is another positive one for Gary and Wendy, the owners of the Gay Street Inn. Rather than repeat what has already been said, I will say, I agree with all the 5 star ratings ! Beautiful gardens, comfy beds & linens, delicious breakfast, enthusiastic owners. My husband and I did the "whole enchilada" at The Inn at Little... More

We enjoyed our all too short very much. We were delayed by traffic in NYC which then dumped us in Washington DC during heavy rain and rush hour. I think you now the drill. We arrived late, tired and more than a little hungry. Our gracious hosts suggested a local tavern. As it was shortly before the Griffin tavern was... More

My husband and I had dinner reservations at the little Washington in, so we decided to just make a night of it. Checking in was a breeze. A breeze across that beautiful front porch, that is! It was not unlike arriving at a friend or family members home. After we arrived we went for a walk around Washington. Gay Street... More

My husband and I are so glad we found the Gay Street Inn. We came across this place online after seeking a b&b to stay at after dinning at Inn at Little Washington for our first wedding anniversary (most Inn guests were also fellow diners). The location was a short walk down the street and had beautiful views of the... More

We are very happy with our choice! Room was very clean and spacious, in a very quiet end of the street, offering nice privacy! Great value and the Innkeepers Gary and Wendy were so very sweet and responsive in every way. We would stay here again for sure!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Gay Street Inn. We were in town for dinner at the Inn at Little Washington, and Gay Street was very close (easy walking distance) to dinner and shopping. The rooms were much bigger than we expected (the Shenandoah suite has a full kitchen), and everything was clean and tidy. The soaps and shampoos... More

This B & B was the perfect location to meet old college friends, one couple from Maryland and the other from North Carolina. The breakfasts here were 5-star, the innkeepers made us feel at home, the front porch was a great place to just sit and breathe, and the library provided a relaxing spot for us to visit and catch...
