502 South Main is awesome. Russ and Mary Stuart, the owners, and hospitable and run a great B&B. From reservations online to check out, an A+++ experience. Beautiful, comfortable, clean and beautifully furnished rooms, modern marble bathrooms, fantastic breakfast and attention to every detail, including a fridge in your room stocked with cold sodas and a chocolate on your pillow at night.
We stayed at 502 South Main for three nights while on a college visit to VMI (Russ is an alumnus). We also arrived later than expected, and were greeted as road weary travelers should be, with cordiality. We were out during the daytime at the college events, and when we returned to our room in the afternoon, there was a plate of yummies awaiting us - sugar dusted walnut cookies one day, delicious chocolate coconut bars another. Breakfast included home baked hot cross buns and egg soufflé. Mary Stuart, who studied under a famous pastry chef in Georgia, is a great baker. Russ gave us great information about VMI and Lexington. Lexington is a lovely historic town - Stonewall Jackson is buried there and Robert E. Lee was college president at W&L - with good restaurants and cute shops. We loved the place and will return, once we lose the extra pounds. Thank you!
