I would highly recommend the Gay Street Inn and a visit to Washington, VA. We were there for dinner at the Inn at Little Washington, but our experience at Gay Street Inn was just as impressive. From booking to departure, Drew took great care to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. We especially appreciated our happy hour drinks at the fireplace. Perfect for a frigid winter day!!

Property's Favourite Review
This was our first to the Gay Street Inn and we absolutely loved it! We've stayed in Little Washington numerous times, but are very happy to have found the Gay Street Inn. The Inn is very clean and feels very safe. The bed, bed linens and especially the pillows are awesome! Drew is a fantastic host and every need is anticipated and taken care of. Breakfast is delightful! I highly recommend the Gay Street Inn.

The Gay Street Inn was a perfect spot for our last second stay. The room was large, clean and had a fabulous bed and linens. The kitchenette was as described and had all my favorite Nespressos. I felt as if I was in a Hallmark Movie! Drew and Deb were welcoming and set up a perfect whiskey tasting including home baked shortbread cookies. Drew also pointed out some nice spots to dine and visit. I highly recommend a stay there.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Gay Street Inn. Our rooms were very nice, very clean and we were very comfortable. The warm welcome by Drew and the welcome cocktails were a really nice touch after a long drive. The cocktails were a big help with relaxing us. We liked the door combination locks – really helped with not having to carry keys around. And even with a fantastic dinner at The Inn at Little Washington, the breakfast was really good and refreshing. My favorite was the granola/fruit/yogurt. So aside from the dinner to celebrate our milestone birthdays, our stay at Gay Street Inn capped quite a memorable weekend for us! Highly recommend staying at this inn - one block from Main Street where the cute shops were and 2 blocks from The Inn at Little Washington.

I had the pleasure of staying at the Gay Street Inn during a recent weekend getaway. I will definitely be coming back here. Everything was extremely detail oriented, and you could tell that the Inn keepers Drew and Deb cared a lot about making sure the guests had a great stay. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom was clean, and the shower pressure was great (a big deal to me personally!) The breakfast was also fantastic, and you are just a short walk to the Inn at Little Washington. I highly recommend this place!
