We recently overnighted at the Inn in conjunction with a dinner at the Inn at Little Washington. Our hosts were welcoming, and very helpful. They were well versed in the ways of the the Inn at Little Washington and local hiking trails. Our room was comfortable and the bed was great. All this for 1/3 the price of the Inn...

We stayed at Gay Street Inn for one night to do dinner at the Inn at Little Washington for her birthday. The owners were very friendly and engaging from the moment we arrived. They gave us ideas for a couple things to do before dinner in the town, which were all perfect. The room was very clean and comfortable. Breakfast...

I surprised my mom with a trip to Washington, VA to celebrate her birthday. Gary and Wendy were gracious hosts taking the time to acquaint us to our accommodations and inquiring about our visit to Washington, VA. In the evening we enjoyed the short walk to and from dinner at The Inn at Little Washington. The Shenandoah Suite was comfortable...

My wife and I stayed here when we traveled to dine at the Inn at Little Washington. It was a great choice at about 1/3rd the price of staying at the Inn itself. The rooms and amenities were fine, and there were some nice added "treats". When we returned from dinner, there was a bottle of Port and an assortment...

Yes, it’s a fabulous bed and breakfast, but allow me to barge past the usual accolades to address an important matter. I’ve been all over the world, drinking coffee in every imaginable way for fifty years, and I’m a personal friend of Juan Valdez. That is the best coffee I’ve ever had in my life.

We stayed at the Gay St. Inn on a Sunday evening; we were in the "Shenandoah Suite", which was spacious, well appointed and very clean. It had a refrigerator and small kitchenette, which was great. The Hosts, Wendy and Gary, were more than friendly and helpful, especially as they allowed us to check in a bit early so we could...

We went to eat at the Inn at Little Washington and stayed here. Lovely reception by the owners. They gave us tips on the menu and about the restaurant and little village. The room is spacious and clean for our purpose. I would definitely stay here again. And it's a 5 minute walk from the Inn - nice in any...

We recently spent a couple of days in Washington, VA and stayed at the Gay Street Inn, located at the end of a street in town, so no traffic noises to disturb us. Owners and hosts, Gary & Wendy, welcomed us warmly and provided us with the two rooms we requested. Both were spacious and comfortable and were as depicted...

We were very happy with our choice to stay at The Gay Street Inn. Innkeepers Wendy and Gary were gracious hosts, the house itself is lovely, it's in the perfect location to walk around Little Washington, and the breakfast was delicious. Our only slight complaint is that the bed was a tiny bit hard and squeaky.

Inn keepers a delight. Breakfast delicious. Only downside is the bed in the Shenandoah Suite is hard and squeaky. Overall a good experience. Walking distance from the Inn at Little Washington and much more affordable!!
