"Hi, we just bought the Inn," said the new owners when we checked in. But don't worry, everything is just as good as it was before. The corn meal pancakes are still on the menu, as well as some other praiseworthy items. And the owners went out of their way to find us restaurants on a Monday evening (not much...

My wife and I were in town to celebrate our second anniversary with a dinner at the Inn at Little Washington. Our whole weekend turned out to be quite amazing, and our accommodations at the Gay Street Inn were a big part of that. We found the new owners, Gary and Wendy, to be very kind, and certainly helpful with...

We only stayed one night, but it was truly delightful. The inn is beautifully and tastefully decorated. The Mountain View room is very comfortable with lots of nice little touches. We enjoyed sitting and relaxing in the garden with a glass of wine before going to dinner at the Inn. Breakfast was absolutely delicious (loved the broiled grapefruit and the...

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...

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,...
