We stayed in this delightful Inn in order to experience dinner at the Inn at Little Washington. The new owners are helpful, delightful and we are very happy that we stayed there. Our room was pretty, comfortable and the bathroom large and commodious. Breakfast was fabulous. A-One experience.

My husband & I had a wonderful stay in an updated, immaculately clean room with comfortable queen bed and a good shower with oversized towels. A treat of Port & chocolate was a lovely offering at 8:30pm. Breakfast was delicious. Even though the new owners only had been open for a week, they took care of us like seasoned professionals.

Dear Reviewer, Thanks for taking the time to share some of the highlights of your stay at Gay Street Inn. We were fortunate to take ownership of an already exceptional Bed and Breakfast from the previous innkeepers, so we're happy to know that we're continuing that same level of service for our guests. We're glad you enjoyed your stay, and...

We stayed here in the mountain room for a weekend trip to the local wineries. What a great place to stay, room was awesome, centrally located between the wineries, and the breakfast was amazing. Would highly recommend this B&B!!

Stayed here with my husband the night of our dinner at the Inn at Little Washington. Gary and Wendy were welcoming and wonderful. Gary gave us a very helpful rundown about dinner at the Inn, including tips he'd picked up both himself and from other diners who had stayed at at his place. The room was charming and clean. It...

We highly recommend!! Gary and Wendy are very welcoming and great fun to talk with. The inn is quiet, spotlessly clean and the breakfast is top quality. Gary is knowledgeable about the area and history and very interesting to visit with. In addition, the stay was a good value. Will return when in the area.

We recently overnighted at the Inn in conjunction with a dinner at the Inn at Little Washington. Our hosts were welcoming, and very helpful. They were well versed in the ways of the the Inn at Little Washington and local hiking trails. Our room was comfortable and the bed was great. All this for 1/3 the price of the Inn...

I surprised my mom with a trip to Washington, VA to celebrate her birthday. Gary and Wendy were gracious hosts taking the time to acquaint us to our accommodations and inquiring about our visit to Washington, VA. In the evening we enjoyed the short walk to and from dinner at The Inn at Little Washington. The Shenandoah Suite was comfortable...

My wife and I stayed here when we traveled to dine at the Inn at Little Washington. It was a great choice at about 1/3rd the price of staying at the Inn itself. The rooms and amenities were fine, and there were some nice added "treats". When we returned from dinner, there was a bottle of Port and an assortment...

Yes, it’s a fabulous bed and breakfast, but allow me to barge past the usual accolades to address an important matter. I’ve been all over the world, drinking coffee in every imaginable way for fifty years, and I’m a personal friend of Juan Valdez. That is the best coffee I’ve ever had in my life.
