502 South Main is even lovelier inside than its gracious external grounds. The downstairs common areas take you back to a time of opulence and beauty, inviting guests who arrived as strangers to leave as friends. Our room was delightfully decorated and had every amenity we could need, including climate control and our own Keurig machine! Our innkeeper, Karen, lovingly... More

Our weekend at the 502 South Main was everything we imagined. The hosts, Mary Stuart and Russ, are gracious and welcoming and attended to our every need. Mary's breakfasts were beautifully presented and very tasty! The room was spacious, beautifully decorated, and exceptionally comfortable. We especially enjoyed the heated towel rack. The B&B is located within walking distance of churches... More

My wife and I enjoy vacations where you have the option to walk to everything. 502 is well located in Lexington. Rooms are well organized and furnished, breakfast was great and special requests accepted. Great sense of history and area. Nice job. Russ is a VMI graduate.

Our 2-day stay at 502 S. Main made our visit especially delightful. The hosts went out of their way to make sure all went well regarding restaurants, reservations, sites, etc., and treated us more as old friends than guests. The very comfortable and beautiful guest rooms have every amenity one could reasonably expect (including large bathrooms) and the breakfasts are... More

Also i got to choose my breakfast time. As for the bed part, also great, with nice rooms and a wonderful bathroom in each one. Also, complementary snacks and drinks... More

We had a fabulous stay at 502 South Main while in Lexington for my law school class reunion. Our room was beautiful and perfectly appointed. The breakfasts were amazing. The location is also perfect to stroll through beautiful Lexington. We will definitely be back for another stay!

Unfortunately, we only had one night to enjoy all that 502 South Main offers, but that was plenty enough to bring us back for more. We've stayed at many a B&B over the years and this truly was one of the most welcoming, warm & comfortable homes. You couldn't ask for more gracious hosts. We have a daughter starting at... More

Mary Stuart and Russ have a fantastic B&B that makes you feel as relaxed and welcome as if you were in your own home. We were welcomed with such a warm greeting and given a great glass of sweet tea and friendly conversation as if we knew each other for years. Mary Stuart showed us the rooms available for the...

One of the best bed and breakfast places we have ever stayed and we have stayed at quite a few! The breakfast was absolutely wonderful. Homemade granola, cornmeal waffles, stone ground grits from the local mill, and homemade bread and hot cross buns as well! Russ and Mary Stewart were incredibly gracious and extremely welcoming without being overbearing. They really... More

We LOVED 502 South Main, from Mary Stuart & Russ, to the lovely room with a comfortable bed, to beautiful grounds and surroundings, to a delicious breakfast, to good conversation at breakfast and a restful place to stay after a long trip.
