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...

Our first visit to Gay Street Inn will definitely not be our last! The room was spotlessly clean, the hosts very accommodating; the breakfast delicious; the bed extremely comfortable with high quality linens. Even the bath towels were large and fluffy.

We stayed at the Gay Street Inn for one night with our sister and brother. Very accommodating and friendly hosts. We had been here before when it was under different management. This was just as good. We would definitely come back!

This is a lovely B&B. We spent one night ( 10/28/13) but could happily have stayed longer to explore the region. We have not stayed in many B&B's so I was not sure what to expect but as we were dining at the Inn at Little Washington and reluctant to pay their room prices instead chose the very near-by Gay...

The Gay Street Inn is a charming B&B run by a friendly and chatty couple with an interesting background. They love what they do and really try to make you feel at home. The house is beautiful and the rooms are perfect. We were very comfortable. They have late night snacks in the parlor and the breakfast was fantastic. It... More

This is a beautiful bed and breakfast and--as has been noted in other reviews--a perfect complement to the Inn at Little Washington, one of the finest restaurants (and most pricey B & Bs) in America. The Gay Street Inn is superlative in every respect--comfortable yet elegant and very reasonably priced. New owners, Gary and Wendy Aichele, are skilled hosts.... one... More

My husband and I stayed at the Gay Street Inn last week. We ate at the Inn at Little Washington for dinner, but first enjoyed reading on the porch and watching the sunset. Our room was beautiful and comfortable and quiet. A bottle of Port and some chocolates were waiting for us when we returned for dinner; a very thoughtful... More

This has been our third stay at the Gay Street Inn and it's no accident. It happens to be in a town that has one of America's great restaurants, The Little Inn at Washington, but it is also a charming town that serves as a base to drive through the charming coutryside, to drive part of the Shenandoah Valley Parkway,...
