The Gay Street Inn was delightful. Have stayed on two seperate occassions and each time was wonderful. Both rooms were lovely. Our second trip was before Christmas and we brought our 105lb dog with us. Dogs are permitted in what is sort of a Jr. Suite with a king bed on the first floor. This room is equipted with a...

Jay and Kevin are terrific innkeepers. They are incredibly accommodating and hospitable. We stayed with our dog and they even had the thoughtfulness to leave out a dish of dog treats for him. When I misplaced a valuable in the room, they made the extra effort to locate it and mail it to me the following day. Truly top-notch service.

We are so pleased that these guests, who from their profile travel a great deal, enjoyed their stay with us. We try hard to strike the right balance between being attentive and giving guests privacy to enjoy their own time together in our home. The cocktail hour in the evening and breakfast hour in the morning are the times we...

Stayed the night of our 20th Anniversary. Nicely appointed and very close to shops and the Inn at Little Washington (our dinner). When we returned from dinner, Kevin had set up the front parlor with port, chocolate and a fire. My husband & I curled-up & sipped, chatted about life. What could be better. Our room was simple, not really...

RappahannockVA, Owner at Gay Street Inn, responded to this review

We're sorry that these guests were less than fully pleased with their experience. We are always happy to accommodate special requests for food and beverage, but we are rarely asked for hot tea and so do not automatically provide daily tea service. If you have a special request, including something that you would like waiting for you on arrival, please...

We only stayed one night, but it was great. Just two blocks from the Inn at Little Washington. We were trying to see if there were any places to stay since dinner there would already be very expensive. The owners were very nice. They planned our next day's activities and served a wonderful breakfast.

We stayed this past weekend for one night at this lovely B&B. Both Kevin and Jay were extremely friendly and warm. This was our first experience with a B&B and we couldn't be happier. The room was comfortable, the Inn tastefully decorated and breakfast the next morning was divine. Homemade banana scones, fresh fruit, corn meal pancakes with homemade cranberry...

Our visit to the Gay Street Inn was perfect in every way. Kevin and Jay are friendly and helpful, and their rooms are beautifully appointed and decorated. You can tell an artist is in residence!

The Gay Street Inn is a quiet, unpretentious, and very relaxing B&B in Washington, VA. We celebrated our 27th anniversary there and will definitely be back! The hosts were very helpful making recommendations for local activities and very attentive.
