We were celebrating a 50th birthday at The Inn at Little Washington, and found Gay Street Inn from a link on the restaurant's website and stayed there for two nights. Owners Kevin and Jay were great hosts and arranged for flowers and champagne to be waiting in the room when we arrived. The grounds are lovely, and we were sitting...

My husband and I spent the night at this B&B to dine at the Inn at Little Washington. The restaurant is a quick 3 minute walk down the street. The innkeepers were very hospitable and gracious hosts. I asked them if there a fridge was available because I was nursing mom and they offered and placed a cooler with ice...

My husband and I stayed here for my birthday weekend. We spent one night at the Inn. The innkeepers were so welcoming and kind. When we returned from dinner at the Inn at Little Washington in the evening, there was port and chocolates set out for the guests as well as a nice fire. The rooms were very comfortable, clean,...

We stayed here just to have a place to stay after we dined at the Inn at Little Washington. But it was such a cozy, comfortable place with warm inviting owners we will be back. The room was well decorated, the bed comfortable and the atmosphere quiet.

The main reason for most people to go to Washington VA is to eat at the Inn at Little Washington - a fantastic place but the room charges are outrageous. Gay Street Inn is not exactly cheap either but is more reasonable for lodging and a charming place with wonderful innkeepers. This was our 2nd stay. They are very friendly...

We had a perfect stay at the Gay Street Inn! Kevin met us when we arrived and after settling in, he suggested we enjoy a glass of wine in front of the fire in the library. We had been walking around town on a very blustery afternoon and the wine in front of the fire was an excellent touch. When...

We met Kevin when we checked in, and he pampered us throughout our stay. Advised us of all the local sites to see, provided good Virginia wines and a fire in the beautiful library. Port and chocolate was waiting for us when we got back from dinner. Alas, we were too full to partake. But we did enjoy a hearty,...

The Gay Street Inn was delightful. Have stayed on two seperate occassions and each time was wonderful. Both rooms were lovely. Our second trip was before Christmas and we brought our 105lb dog with us. Dogs are permitted in what is sort of a Jr. Suite with a king bed on the first floor. This room is equipted with a...

Jay and Kevin are terrific innkeepers. They are incredibly accommodating and hospitable. We stayed with our dog and they even had the thoughtfulness to leave out a dish of dog treats for him. When I misplaced a valuable in the room, they made the extra effort to locate it and mail it to me the following day. Truly top-notch service.

This is really a very high value proposition and you wont go wrong staying here and saving the money for dinner at the Inn! The hosts of the Gay St. are extremely helpful and attentive and really go out of their way to be gracious and friendly. Breakfast is excellent, well prepared and served. Rooms are fine, quiet and well...

We are so pleased that these guests, who from their profile travel a great deal, enjoyed their stay with us. We try hard to strike the right balance between being attentive and giving guests privacy to enjoy their own time together in our home. The cocktail hour in the evening and breakfast hour in the morning are the times we...
