“502 South Main”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2011

Lovely rooms, clean and pretty, comfortable atmosphere, just a really nice stay... maybe the breakfast was lacking in the usual food items, like toast, cereal and such. We would definately like to return one of these days.

This place rightly deserves 9 out of 10. If you are new to Lexington and its surroundings then Mary S and Ross are the people to talk to. They are extremely kind and they tended to our every need. The place is located within walking distance from downtown, about 4 minutes. The house is large, warm, not big on antiques, simple but classy. With a real fireplace the living room would be perfect! The rooms are almost immaculate and the bathrooms spacious and bright. The huge mattress was a bit saggy for my taste. Breakfast is very generous and the spinach and egg soufflé with cinnamon apple tasty, if you are a big eater fresh fruit, homemade cake and cereals are also available. It is slightly pricey but you get an excellent service. I would gladly return if the top 3 places in town are fully booked.

Mary Stuart and her husband Ross purchased this village inn this spring. 502 Main Street is perfection in every way. Designer decorated with elegance and charm you can rest luxuriously here in warmth and comfort. The dining room and parlor are chic and at the same time radiate relaxation.
We stayed in the East Suite with a huge canopied bed, period furniture and a fireplace. The bathroom is as up to date as you can get. Beautifully tiled, slick and modern white still retaining the charm of the Inn. The Inn combines the best of country charm and elegance with modernity where it is welcome.
Highest recommendation. You will love your hosts.

A visit to this wonderful, quaint and charming village definitely requires an overnight stay at Russ and Mary Stuart's 502 South Main B&B. You will receive friendly and personal treatment, as well as immaculate accommodations and a fabulous, freshly prepared breakfast. The B&B is wonderfully decorated, however, it is more beautiful than the few photos on their website, which we did suggest to the owners to update. It is within walking distance of the restaurants, shops, colleges and various historical attractions. We will definitely recommend these accommodations to our friends and family and any future travelers to this area of Virginia.

Room Tip: All rooms are unique and tastefully decorated.....the bathrooms are to die for!!!!

We chose 502 South Main to lodge this past weekend. Our dear friends joined us there so we occupied two of the three rooms available. Do not let the limited photos on the website discourage you. I can assure you the king and queen rooms were tastefully decorated and absolutely pristine.The owners of this B and B went out of their way to provide all the extra nuances we could ever want. The breakfasts for two days were fabulous! We were within easy walking distance of downtown. All in all, our experience was outstanding. We would heartily recommend this home. You will leave knowing you have made two new friends in the owners. We will return as soon as we can!

Room Tip: One room has a king, one has a queen and the third room has two twins. So your need should determine...

This is a great bed and breakfast! We arrived later than anticipated and were still greeted with smiles by Mary and Russ. Breakfast was fabulous both mornings, a three course breakfast. The inn keepers were very friendly and pointed out the area attractions and other places to eat. Our room was immaculate! We will be going back soon!

Room Tip: We stayed in the South room. It was awesome!
