“Best experience EVER!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2012

We stayed at the B&B for our wedding anniversary and Mary Stuart and Russ were the most wonderful hosts! They were very warm and friendly and had a LOT of information in what to see and do.

We stayed in the East room. The room and bathroom was beautiful and immaculate. There were wonderful extras including snacks in the afternoon and a nightly turndown service. Breakfast in the morning was delicious! We had a quiche and even caramel pecan French toast.

I would highly recommend this B&B to anyone staying in the area! I feel like we left with two new friends and a new favorite place to visit!

502 South Main is a beautiful house surrounded by a lovely yard. Our room was spacious and comfortable. We enjoyed meeting Mary Stuart and Russ and our fellow guests. We can't wait to return!

Russ and Mary Stuart couldn't be more gracious, helpful and hospitable. My room was large, extremely comfortable and kitted out with anything you could want. The common areas indoor and outdoor are great. Mary Stuart cooks up a wonderful and plentiful breakfast every morning, and there are lots of little extras they shower you with. You're a short walk to town and campuses of both schools. Ample parking behind thd house.

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.
