Russ and Mary Stewart welcomed us into their home from the moment we arrived. The breakfasts were wonderful each morning. The neighborhood was quiet, and the Inn is very convenient to the historic downtown. We enjoyed the leisurely walk back to the Inn after dinner in one of the great downtown restaurants each evening. We have definitely found the Inn...

This was our third stay with Russ and Mary Stuart and as always, it was memorable. It was my wife's birthday so I made arrangements with Mary Stuart for flowers in the room. A beautiful bouquet! Breakfasts were terrific with the pecan toast a delight. We enjoyed a lovely glass of wine with our hosts the first night there. The...

I found this gem online and could not have been more pleased. My husband and I stayed here on our way home from the beach. The B&B is impeccably clean and tastefully decorated. The art is beautiful and interesting as the artists are family members of the wonderful hosts. Mary Stuart and Russ were warm, friendly and made recommendations for...

Mary Stuart and Russ and incredible care takers and are the perfect balance of hosting, helping, but not over intrusive. Breakfast was delicious, hands down the best pancakes I have ever had. The room was so inviting, warm, clean, luxurious and always had a little treat to look forward to. It was a relaxing place to come back to each...

I stayed with Russ and Mary Stewart, a tired and stressed traveler on a rudderless voyage. They treated me to LUXURY, grace, hospitality, and kindness. The B&B is exquisite, and Mary Stewart and Russ are just the salt of the earth! Honestly, I did not want to leave!

502 is inviting from the minute you pull into the nicely landscaped parking. But it is the unexpected small touches that added up and made this B&B so special. The fresh cookies, fresh fruit, iced water, lux linens and more. The family artwork gave a sense of personal history along with the great history of the town. And a bonus:...

Mary Suart and Ross were wonderful hosts. We received a warm and unexpected welcoming. We were just looking for a place to sleep during our road trip for Washington and it was a very good surprise to find this lovely place. We really appreciated our journey.

I fear my penmanship cannot do justice as to how great the 502 and its hosts are. Great food, art and lavish rooms are complimented by wonderful hosts. Mary Stuart and Russ are just amazing. On top of all that the close location to Downtown Lexington and all its wonderful history is just another benefit. Look no further, this is...
