Gay Street Inn
Ranked #4 of 8 Washington B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 August 2017

This is a great B&B. Owners are young and friendly - there if you need them, but not hovering when you'd like to be alone. The breakfast was excellent, and only possibly overshadowed by the delicious, pure-Rapahannock County craft cocktail the night before:) The room we stayed in (Mountain View) was perfectly appointed with a nice, large bathroom and a comfy bed. All in all, we loved it. Thanks for the hospitality.

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...

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.
