We have had two recent stays at 502 South Main and have already booked our third trip. As parents of a W&L student, we love that we can walk into Lexington and to campus easily, but retreat to a quiet well-appointed room for a great night's sleep at the end of the day. Mary Stuart and Russ are so welcoming... More

My husband and I were breaking up a long drive home and had planned to stay at the Greenbrier over the last weekend in June, and -- with no cell service -- were unaware of the devastating flooding that had hit White Sulphur Springs. We headed home toward DC and on a whim, I called 502 South Main -- and... More

Had a wonderful stay! The room was lovely, updated immaculate, and well appointed. Russ and Mary are perfect hosts who really thought of everything to make our stay perfect. Home-made breakfast was gourmet and bountiful. Would stay again in a heartbeat!

We had a wonderful time at 502 South Main. The location was perfect. Within walking distance of downtown restaurants and historical sites. Russ and Mary Stuart were the perfect hosts and a wealth of knowledge on where to visit and eat. The home was beautiful and our room was amazing. Breakfast was excellent too. I would love to go back... More

We had decided to make a short trip to the Blue Ridge Mountains during our visit to Virginia so we consulted TripAdvisor for a place to stay overnight. 502 South Main caught our eye and with so many positive comments we would have been daft not to give it a go. So glad we did, from the welcome, the comfortable... More

My husband and I decided to celebrate our Anniversary at 502 Main Street. Mary Stuart greeted us at our arrival. I felt like I was a dream. The room and the house was warming and so beautiful. Both Mary Stuart and her delighted husband Ross, made us feel like we were family. Lastly I do have to mention the treats... More

My husband, in-laws and I had the most amazing weekend at 502 South Main! We were in town for a wedding during the 4th of July long weekend. The wonderful Trip Advisor reviews and photos made this an easy choice, and boy were they accurate. Aside from the ideal location, beautiful décor and amenities, Mary Stuart and Russ were wonderful,... More

This bed and breakfast was very inviting, comfortable, beautifully decorated, and every convenience made available in the room--iron, blow dryer, refrigerator---drinks, snacks--big screen television, curtains closed at dark--bed covers pulled down with chocolates on the pillow. This is an old historic home furnished to reflect the period with many authentic pieces. The owners were very accommodating making us feel welcome... More

We would just like to start out by saying what a wonderful place to stay in the Lexington Virginia area. The home is beautiful and well cared for. Mary Stewart and Russ are wonderful hosts. We stayed in the West Room and it was spotless, quiet and just wonderful. You don't have to ask for anything because it is all... More

We left the 502 South Main already planning a return visit. The South Room is as comfortable as it is beautifully decorated with a king-size dramatic bed and a comfortable sitting area. We anticipate returning in winter when we can enjoy the fireplace. The bath is stunning, spread over two rooms with a large marble walk-in shower and an old-fashioned... More
