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 stayed... More

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

Walking distance of the Inn at Little Washington. Friendly, helpful innkeepers that really make you feel at home and help you to get the most out of your stay in the area.

My mom and I had a delightful one-night stay at the Gay Street Inn. We were in town to visit that other well-known Inn for dinner. Kevin was a gracious and thoughtful host, and he made us feel so welcomed. Note that my mom and I are not "B & B people," but we can easily and happily recommend this... More

We spent the night at Gay Street Inn while dining at the Inn at Little Washington. The Innkeepers were great and extremely hospitable going above and beyond in all facets of the stay. There was wine whenever we wanted, an elaborate complimentary breakfast, as well as ideas for daytrips in the area. Would highly recommend.

We are, admittedly, recidivists. Gay Street Inn is as good a b&b as we have stayed at. The owners are hospitable, and they serve great breakfast. In fact they do everything they can to make the stay enjoyable.

My wife and I spent a peaceful Saturday night at the Gay Street Inn and were very pleased. The owners were exceedingly friendly and gracious, our room was clean and charming and the breakfast was delicious. The only thing I would change is that we stayed in the Shenandoah Suite -- on the ground floor near the front door --... More

GayStreetInnkeeper, Owner at Gay Street Inn, responded to this review

We are glad that these guests enjoyed their stay, but sorry to hear that they were disturbed by both a noisy door and noisy guests. We have fixed the door (the stop had shifted) and do try to encourage guests who have late dinner reservations to be mindful of others when they return. A peaceful night's sleep is one of... More
