The Inn is nicely decorated and immaculate. Wendy and Gary are warm and friendly hosts who make guests feel very welcome and comfortable. They almost seem to anticipate your needs and try to tailor the homemade breakfast to suit your tastes.

Super-friendly, knowledgeable hosts. Very clean, comfortable 'Mountain View' room, with large, well-equipped bathroom. Loved the coffee and muffins, while watching the winter sunrise in the breakfast room, followed by the hearty fresh-cooked breakfast. Overall, we greatly enjoyed our weekend getaway. We loved absolutely everything except... while I usually appreciate a firm mattress, the bed was well beyond firm and was... More

My husband and I had a very nice weekend here celebrating our 1st wedding anniversary. The owners, Gary & Wendy, were very nice and provided great accommodations at an affordable price. The breakfast each morning was delicious and kept us very full throughout our day exploring the surrounding areas. The Inn is walkable to the Inn at Little Washington if... More

In a small town with very high standards the Gay Street Inn stands apart--at the end of a quiet street near the center of everything. Rooms and common areas are warmly decorated and impeccably maintained. The hosts, Gary and Wendy, are welcoming and knowledgeable. Breakfast was imaginative and well prepared. No gimmicks, just excellence at a reasonable price.

The classic B&B. Gary & Wendy are the welcoming, generous and affable hosts serving indulgent breakfasts and providing invitingly cosy and comfortable rooms for end of day relaxation - whether bedroom or their sitting room with its open fire. Situated in a bucolic location in a pretty rural town blessed with proximity to a variety of excellent galleries and dining... More

A nice little place at the end of the road; if not particularly charming or interesting. We chose the Bradams Ridge room--entirely fine, except I'd be hard-pressed to believe that it was a queen bed as the web site indicates. The linens--both sheets and towels, were very fine--the extra-large bath sheets are almost unwieldy in the small bathroom :*). The... More

We stayed in the Shenandoah Suite as it was the only room left when we booked. It's a great space with a kitchen included. We were there only one night so it was more space than we needed, but it would be perfect for a longer stay. The hosts were very gracious and the breakfast was delicious. We had a... More

We stayed at the Gay Street since we were having dinner at The Inn at Little Washington. Since this was our first visit to The Inn at Little Washington they took the time to give us advice for our dinner and it was wonderful. The room was perfect and the breakfast was excellent. It's a nice touch that they have... More
