We had a wonderful stay last night at the Gay Street Inn. We were in town to celebrate my wife's birthday with dinner at the Little Inn at Washington and booked our reservation based on reviews and walking distance to the restaurant. The Inn was beautifully appointed, clean and comfortable. The Inn owners, Drew and Beth, are genuine and enjoyable...

Staying at The Gay Street Inn was an absolutely wonderful experience. Gary and Wendy were very hospitable, the amenities in the room were great, and the views were breath-taking. There was a beautiful garden in the back and an absolutely delicious breakfast included with our stay. It was a short walk from everything, and Gary and Wendy knew all the...

We had a lovely stay! Drew and Deb were welcoming from the moment we parked late Friday night through our delicious breakfast the next morning. If we could go back tomorrow, we would! Even more telling was this: When we expressed our concern about our server in a nearby local restaurant, Drew and Deb promised to apprise the manager of...

We stayed at this lovely B&B after a dinner at the Inn at Little Washington. We received a lovely greeting from the young couple who had only been in business for two weeks. They were like old pros. Lovely accommodations, and delicious breakfast. We met two like-minded couples and chatted with them after dinner in the B&B living room for...

We stayed in this delightful Inn in order to experience dinner at the Inn at Little Washington. The new owners are helpful, delightful and we are very happy that we stayed there. Our room was pretty, comfortable and the bathroom large and commodious. Breakfast was fabulous. A-One experience.

My husband & I had a wonderful stay in an updated, immaculately clean room with comfortable queen bed and a good shower with oversized towels. A treat of Port & chocolate was a lovely offering at 8:30pm. Breakfast was delicious. Even though the new owners only had been open for a week, they took care of us like seasoned professionals.

Dear Reviewer, Thanks for taking the time to share some of the highlights of your stay at Gay Street Inn. We were fortunate to take ownership of an already exceptional Bed and Breakfast from the previous innkeepers, so we're happy to know that we're continuing that same level of service for our guests. We're glad you enjoyed your stay, and...

Stayed here with my husband the night of our dinner at the Inn at Little Washington. Gary and Wendy were welcoming and wonderful. Gary gave us a very helpful rundown about dinner at the Inn, including tips he'd picked up both himself and from other diners who had stayed at at his place. The room was charming and clean. It...

We highly recommend!! Gary and Wendy are very welcoming and great fun to talk with. The inn is quiet, spotlessly clean and the breakfast is top quality. Gary is knowledgeable about the area and history and very interesting to visit with. In addition, the stay was a good value. Will return when in the area.
