Carol and I have stayed at B&B's for 40+ years, and we rate 502 S Main as our new Number 1. Elegant accommodations, great hospitality, and a killer breakfast; what more could we ask? Don Caudle

My son and I took a motorcycle trip through Shenandoah and down the Blue Ridge Parkway. We decided to visit Lexington and try our first B&B stay. Our experience at 502 was definitely one of the highlights of our trip. Mary was wonderful! She treated us like family or long time friends. The house was spotless and charming. The rooms were very comfortable. Breakfast was amazing! Fresh and delicious. I would drive 6 hours back for more of the blueberry scones! :-) Do you want the perfect stay? Look no further. I would not even consider staying anywhere else! Thank you for making our trip to Lexington so great!

502 Main is an immaculate property, full of warmth and comfort. The inn is beautifully and tastefully decorated (the website photos do not do it justice). It is ideally located in a quiet residential neighborhood that is a 5 block walk from shops and restaurants. If you are a foodie, as we are, you will enjoy the generous full breakfast and snacks offered. Our charming hosts, Russ and Mary Stuart, made us feel right at home. We highly recommend this B&B for business or pleasure. Sincerely, Elizabeth and James S.

Dear Mary Stuart and Russ, Michael and I thank you kindly for our visit to 502 South Main! We had a great time. Below is the review that I will be posting. I hope that you approve and find it helpful. Any time we are in town we hope you will have availability for us. We will be back. As an administrative item: We hadn’t planned on Reganne and Ava staying with us and recognize that you would normally charge a fee for additional guests. If you’d like to add a charge to the credit card that I provided, please do so. All our best, Lisa and Michael This B&B is absolutely fabulous! The décor is up to date and luxurious. The location is conveniently located walking distance from downtown Lexington. The owners and hosts, and when I say hosts that means every proper contention of the word, are amazing. The breakfast was fantastic and the conversation with Mary Stuart and Russ was better! We had eggs benedict, a tomato and avocado with high quality balsamic accompaniment, and a starter of homemade granola and (mostly likely organic by the quality) fruit. I thought about it the e-n-t-I-r-e drive back to Alexandria, VA. We stayed in the South room which is spacious and comfortable at the same time. The canopy bed is so very comfortable and in keeping with the home's luxurious décor. The only item of note I would say regarding this review is; it is with selfishness that I say, don't go... that way there is always a room for me! No seriously, GO, you wont regret it! The hosts are the best that can be offered. The breakfast are DC-worthy 5 star rated. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The bathrooms are up to date with marble surrounds. Signed, Lisa M. and Michael M. (and the unintended guests of Reganne and Ava M.)

We went for an overnight while my son went on an official athletic visit at W&L. The room was great and the food was outstanding! Excellent B&B and was so relaxing. We loved it and hope to return soon.
