We ended up staying here before heading over to the Inn at Little Washington. It is within walking distance to the surrounding shops and restaurants. Also, it's very easy to drive from here to Shenandoah for day hiking.

We stayed at the Gay Street Inn in April 2016 (this was our 3rd time at the inn and the second time staying with Gary and Wendy). The first two times, we stayed in the Bradams Ridge Room. This time, I picked the Mountain View Room to change things up. What a difference! While both rooms are comfortable and cozy,... More

The space and grounds are quite beautiful. Parking in front of Inn. Small front porch with 2 rockers. Innkeepers are super nice and... More

We stayed at the Gay Street Inn during our visit to Washington Virginia and couldn't have been more pleased. The owners are so friendly and welcoming. The breakfasts were to die for and the rooms were very clean. It was in walking distance to everywhere we wanted to do in town. Sit on the front porch and relax with the... More

Like almost everyone else who finds themselves in Washington, Virginia who does not already live there, we came for dinner at the Inn at Little Washington, which is a magical treat for those who adore food and can mortgage their children's futures to partake. As we have in the past, we elected to save a few dollars and stay at... More

Personal greetings as soon as we arrived (early) from Gary and Wendy as they helped us with our small luggage. Gary immediately began relating "here's what's going to happen", which included all about our room, the port and chocolates waiting for us when we would return from dinner, and a recap of what we should expect from the menu at...

Very nice little place tucked into the small town of Washington, VA. The owners are very welcoming and are in charge of a nice comfortable inn 10 minutes walk from TIALW. Six of us descended upon the place around 5 pm and they were all ready for us and advised us of port and chocolates later in the evening. We... More

The Innkeepers, Gary and Wendy, couldn't have been nicer. The Inn is impeccable with every detail attended to. They did everything possible to make us feel welcome and special. I don't eat breakfast, so they gave me mine "to go" to enjoy later. Just a small example of their hospitality.
