502 South Main
Ranked #1 of 19 Lexington B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 17, 2012

We couldn't have been more pampered at our stay last night at 502 South Main in Lexington. From Russ's piano serenade to Mary's home baked scones, we enjoyed every peaceful minute at this delightful, extra clean, perfectly charming B&B. The historic home is a short walk from the center of town, so we were able to shop and eat out in Lexington without having to get in the car.

Every thing from the room we stayed in to each and every meal are some of the best we've had in all of our travels. A very homey experience while maintaining the elegance of an upper echelon bed and breakfast. We will definitely be back next time my wife and I visit friends at VMI. Thanks for everything!

The facilities are superb, the food excellent, the company fantastic. We really appreciated the self-help coffee counter outside the bedroom and the complimentary snacks and drinks in the room, not to mention the interesting conversations with our hosts. We would not hesitate to return and recommend this beautiful B&B unreservedly.

My husband and I have just made two overnight visits with Mary Stuart and Russ at the 502 South Main Inn (coming and going to Asheville from Annapolis area). The Inn is spacious, elegant and the perfect place to land after a long day. The attention to detail and guest comfort is outstanding. The beds are not only comfortable but I especially appreciated the high quality linens. Breakfasts are varied and delicious. The inn is withing walking distance to several nice restaurants and historic places of interest. We are frequent travelers and would rate this inn as one of the best we have had the pleasure to stay in.

Room Tip: We saw all 3 rooms. All are spacious, but if you have the chance - take the large king with the work...

Mary Stewart and Russ were the perfect hosts. They have much to be proud of. A great location as you can walk into town. Lovely rooms and bathrooms which are well appointed. A nice touch was a small refrigerator with complimentary water and soft drinks. A supmtuous breakfast (ask Mary Stewart for her sausage souflee) If you are coming to Lexington with a small group of three or four couples this is your top choice, but make your reservations well ahead as this is THE place to stay.

The 502 South Main Bed & Breakfast is the best place to stay in Lexington. Mary Stewart and Russ really make you feel at home. The rooms are well appointed, the bathrooms spacious, and a rocking chair on the porch is great to watch the world go by. To start the day, Mary Stewart provides a wonderful breakfast (my favorite is the crab and artichoke souffle). She even accomodates my wife's gluten allergy. We have stayed in many B&B's and hotels in town and this is our favorite by far.
