My husband and I recently celebrated my birthday with a 2-night stay at the Gay Street Inn along with dinner at the Inn at Little Washington. Washington is a charming town; the Gay Street Inn was delightful and the new owners, Deb and Drew, couldn't have been more accommodating. The Inn is at the end of a quiet street and has a beautiful yard. Our room was spacious, clean, and bright and had a new, comfortable king mattress. The breakfast was fresh and delicious. Wine and specialty cocktails were served in the library in the afternoon. We look forward to a return visit.

We visited Gay Street Inn for our anniversary and couldn't have been more pleased. We were greeted warmly by Drew and Deb and shown to our lovely room, which was immaculate and spacious. There were many thoughtful details that made us feel at home, like chilled champagne waiting in our room; a great supply of books, games and puzzles; the lovely garden with benches and adirondack lounges for reading; pre-dinner custom cocktails; post dinner chocolate and port, etc. The Inn's location allowed us to walk to and from our dinner at the Inn at Little Washington easily. Breakfast the next morning was absolutely delicious with fresh scones, savory tarts, and homemade granola topping the list. All in all a fabulous stay!

My husband and I spent a night at the Gay Street Inn last week, celebrating our 48th wedding anniversary. It is located just a few blocks from The Inn at Little Washington, an easy walk after a once in a lifetime dinner! Tastefully decorated, very comfortable and sparkling clean, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The owners are friendly and most hospitable. We especially enjoyed sitting in the library before dinner sipping a complimentary cocktail prepared by Drew. Breakfast the following morning, served in a pleasant breakfast room was tasty. My only wish was for some bottled water in the room. But there was complimentary port and chocolate in the library before bed!

Room Tip: We choice an upstairs room because it had a walk in shower. I doubt you would go wrong with any of the rooms.

Not only is it a happy place to visit, it took me to my personal happy place. Drew and Debbie and such wonderful hosts. All of the rooms were booked the night we were there, but it was still quietly comfortable. Those of us who were staying just kind of collected in the "library" and talked for awhile. Breakfast the next morning was pleasantly filling and delicious. Great place to stay.

Room Tip: I doubt there's a bad one.

My wife and I last visited the Gay Street Inn in 2013 and since then, the Inn has changed hands. We made reservations before the change but were not disappointed with the new owners. Drew and Deb do a great job continuing to keep the Gay Street Inn a cut above.

Another dinner at the Inn at Little Washington, but prices there for lodging are still out of sight, so we came back to the Gay Street Inn for our stay. We booked the Shenandoah Suite because I needed a king size bed but for others of you out there looking for a big bed, the owners have upgraded 2 other rooms to king size beds as well!

The Inn itself is a great place to relax. Well kept yard and seating in the garden area out back. Library with soft music was nice to look at books by, and sitting on the front porch facing the Shenandoah Mountains at sunset is a great place to be.

As I said in my 1st review, "We'll be back". Well, we did come back, and I'm sure we'll be this way again. And when we do, I'm also sure we'll be staying here. This is a great place to stay!

Dear Dave L,

Thanks so much for the wonderful review of Gay Street Inn! Deb and I are so glad that your second visit was as exceptional as your first, and we're proud that we have maintained the high bar set by the inn's previous owners. Thanks also for highlighting the new king-size beds! We're excited to now offer our guests more opportunity to book a room with a larger bed. We look forward to hosting you again on your next visit to Gay Street Inn!

Best regards,
Drew and Deb
