6/10 Good

Nice b/b close to Lexington town
The rooms at this place are all very different so it would pay to look first and see which one you are getting bc there are some REALLY cluttered ones (as were ours) and then some others that were super streamlined and nicer! In addition, it was interesting that for a place from which many are traveling, breakfast was not available until 9 am! Although the innkeeper did accomadate us by providing to go breakfasts, I just thought it was a little odd!

Small, personal and quiet inn.
Comfortable and quiet. A very nice, personal experience and in a terrific location. We stayed in the Shenandoah Suite and loved the extra bedroom, the two sinks and the porch/reading room. Very spacious. The linens were old but nice quality and very soft. The beds were very good. Towels need updating. Breakfast was full service and beautifully presented. The host is delightful and helpful.

Lovely B&B in historic Lexington, VA
Very impressive B&B. Beautiful historic decor. Room was very comfortable and relaxing. The breakfast was wonderful. Owners are very accommodating and friendly. You can walk to downtown Lexinton in less than 5 minutes. Will definitely stay there again!
