We had an incredible stay at the Gay Street inn for our 10th anniversary! We were greeted by one of the owners, Drew, when we arrived and offered a cocktail before our reservation at the Inn at Little Washington. Drew also informed us that we could ask for a kitchen tour during our dinner if we wanted to when he found out my husband loved cooking! We did that and seeing the kitchen was amazing and we wouldn’t have known to ask without Drew telling us. He also gave us hiking suggestions for the next morning since we didn’t have a lot of time! Our short stay was amazing! The breakfast was awesome the next day and we were given so many suggestions for our short hike and the one that we settled on after the discussion was perfect! It was the best 10 year anniversary and Drew and Deb were one of the reasons it rocked!

Spent a night at this Inn this weekend. It was a great experience. Very nice place. The room was fairly large, with a king bed and nicely decorated. We spent some time in the comfy living room where we were served an expertly made craft cocktail before we headed out to the Inn at Little Washington for dinner. Upon our return we had some port wine and chocolate awaiting. Both were excellent. In the morning we had a great homemade breakfast. The owners were delightful and great hosts. One of the best B&B experiences we have had. We will definitely be back.

This place is amazing! Drew and Deb are such amazing down to earth people. They truly make you feel so welcome (love their never ending smiles). I feel they have taken B&B's to a whole new level - from the wine they set out, the music they play, the breakfasts they serve, the Library (that my wife would love to just sit in and read books for a week), and Edie "The Boss" who makes day to day operations as smooth as silk - I've never been to a B&B where they iron the sheets - OMG what's next. Thank you for another amazing weekend - we are so looking forward to October already. Is it here yet??? PS - How can you forget the Bourbon tasting - oh that's right, you can't.

Greg and Meg, Thanks for the incredible review! We're happy to have become a "home away from home" for you both over the years. It is guests like you that make us glad we chose to leave the city and run a B&B in Little Washington. And yes, Edie is "the boss," and we are so fortunate to have her keeping Gay Street Inn spotless and welcoming. As always, we look forward to your next visit! Sincerely, Drew & Deb Gay Street Inn

We were back in Washington VA for another meal at the famed Inn for the first time in 5 years and took another couple with us. We decided to again stay at the Gay Street. We had two rooms reserved and they were both on the second floor. We were not aware that Deb and Drew took over the Inn a few years ago but they are every bit as friendly and accommodating as the old owners. The beds were replaced since the last time we were there and were very comfortable. We took advantage of the library and played some games and also sipped some good wine before our dinner. Breakfast was waffles and some incredible granola that Drew makes....he should market the granola as it was fantastic. They also have the cutest dog that we got a chance to meet! All in all - a great time was had by everyone and will definitely stay there again the next time we splurge on dinner at The Inn. .

My daughter, her friend, and I stayed at the Gay Street Inn last week and it was absolutely lovely. From my first interaction, a call to get recommendations on which rooms to book, to our last, our breakfast in the charming dining area, we were thrilled. Our host welcomed us upon our arrival, gave us a great tour of the inn, made us FABULOUS drinks while we got ready for our reservation at The Inn at Little Washington, answered all of our questions, and generally made sure we had a great time. The rooms are charming, the beds are very comfortable, and we wanted to NOTHING! Have no qualms with staying at the Gay Street Inn. You will be so pleased! Thanks for a great stay--will will be back!
