In a lot of ways, Drew and Deb were your typical Washington, D.C. couple. Drew worked in the government and Deb in consulting. Their Capitol Hill neighborhood was charming, and they loved watching it grow and change over the years. Deb had a passion for baking and wine, and Drew was a whiskey enthusiast, writing for a popular spirits blog in his spare time.

Like many, they lived for their weekends and cherished every second of them. Every drive or flight home from a daytrip or long weekend, they would eventually talk about how wonderful it would be to get into the hospitality business; to take what they loved about travel and entertaining and share it with people. That conversation would always end with a promise to explore the idea more when they were closer to retirement, when it made more “sense.” Then one happy day Drew and Deb decided it made sense now.

When they stumbled upon Gay Street Inn in “Little” Washington, Virginia they knew they’d found something special. From their first breath of mountain air and stroll around the peaceful but vibrant little town, they knew they’d found home and a place people needed to experience.

Whether you are hiking, vineyard-hopping, “leaf-peeping,” or visiting for a special meal, Drew and Deb would love to host you for a relaxing stay in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Their tastefully restored 1850s farmhouse is a short walking distance from everything “Little” Washington has to offer and just minutes from Shenandoah National Park. Come see why they fell in love with this place.
