A wonderful inn to stay at if you plan on dinning at The Inn at Little Washington's restaurant. Comfortable and secluded, but within easy walking distance of the restaurant. Very peaceful and quiet, plus a great fresh breakfast served on the porch with a view of the garden. A great getaway from the big city hustle and bustle. Kevin and... More

I took my wife to the Inn at Little Washington for a celebratory dinner and wanted a more reasonable alternative for accommodations. The Gay Street Inn provided the perfect location and price range for a one night getaway. We were greeted warmly by one of the Innkeepers and shown to our beautiful room - clean and tastefully decorated with what... More

We were searching for a one night stay near The Inn at Little Washington (as we were attending a wedding there) and are we SO happy we chose The Gay Street Inn! This was our first bed & breakfast experience and the bar has been set high! We stayed in the Shenandoah Suite (the only room with a king sized... More

We're delighted that these guests enjoyed their stay with us, but are sorry that a squeaky bed frame disturbed their sleep. We've taken care of that (bolts needed tightening) and appreciate that they called it to our attention. A B&B, including its bed frames, should be quiet at night! Jay and Kevin More

Located near the end of a dead end street, this B and B was quiet, clean, spacious and had beautifully landscaped grounds. The innkeepers were attentive and helpful, the breakfast was delicious. Coffee was roasted locally, meant to pick some up for ourselves. Will go back there soon.

The Garden Room was lovely and very comfortable. The Innkeepers were gracious and welcoming. The bed was very comfortable. The amenities (wine upon arrival and port and chocolate after dinner) were a nice touch and also very good. The location was within walking distance to the Inn at Little Washington. Breakfast was excellent. It was a very nice experience and... More

Beautiful rooms in a charming inn with lovely gardens. Enjoy a glass of wine on the porch when you arrive, and port & chocolates when you return. Jay & Kevin really ensure you have a delightful stay. We had dinner at the Inn at little Washington- we can't recommend the gay st inn highly enough. Superb value.

A delightful, comfortable, charming B& B. A great alternative to the much pricier Inn at Little Washington, and only a short walk if you are having dinner there. Innkeeper, Kevin Adams, had great tips for seeing the local area and dining at Little Washington. The area is lovely and less than 30 minutes from great hiking in the Shenandoah National... More

We booked at the Gay Street Inn as we had reservations for dinner at the Inn at Little Washington over the weekend. We spent two nights there and were just made to feel so welcome from the moment we arrived. Kevin was gracious beyond belief and was so helpful with recommendations for things to do in the area.

We booked this place (bed and breakfast) because it was convenient (three blocks) from a famous restaurant, the Inn at Little Washington, which we had booked months in advance. We knew almost nothing about it except its location; It was a perfect choice for our purposes. We were greeted graciously and briefed fully; the owners went out of their way... More
