What We Love
- A meeting of history and luxury at a boutique bed-and-breakfast in the heart of Lexington
- The complimentary continental breakfast, coffee and afternoon refreshments
- Haywood’s Piano Bar, for a delicious mix of food and fun
- Being in the middle of Lexington, near tons of boutiques and restaurants
What To Know
- Front guestrooms have nice street views (and some have balconies), but they are noisier than those in the back of the building
- Though each room is individually decorated, they all have southern-chic style
- The property was built in the late 1700s
Meet The Georges, an inn steeped in local history, inspired by two great
men. George Washington and George Marshall weren’t just iconic historic
figures; they were gentlemen, statesmen and symbols of simpler times.
This boutique inn features hints of vintage charm and Old World
hospitality, reminiscent of the eras of these legendary leaders. Coupled
with luxury furnishings and amenities, this historic design transforms
the hotel into a lavish escape in the heart of Lexington’s quaint Main
The Georges building might date back to the late 1700s,
but those details and thoughtful amenities are rooted in the now. With
Frette linens in the rooms and a fireplace in the lobby lounge, the inn
has just as much present-day extravagance as timeless style. Even the
dining experience is luxe, with fine-menu options in a piano-bar
setting. And the perfect Lexington location near charming shops,
restaurants and local attractions keeps you within reach of the best of
this Virginia town, so you really do get a stay that’s fit for a George,
and that’s no lie.
True to this historic inn’s thoughtful character, no
two guestrooms are alike. Expect custom furnishings, elegant amenities
and modern conveniences that will make you feel right at home. Whether
you choose the spacious Premier room or the Deluxe accommodations, which
boast fabulous downtown views, your room will feature luxurious details
and muted palettes for a peaceful retreat.
The Georges, you don’t just live well – you also dine well. And by
well, we mean that each dish and cocktail is served with a dash of
Virginia hospitality. Keep it casual at TAPS, the lobby lounge,
featuring craft cocktails, comfort food and local ingredients. Favorites
include the pimento cheese, fried Virginia oysters and pound cake with
strawberry compote. For a night of entertainment, Haywood’s Piano Bar
has live music and seasonal cuisine, including maple-glazed salmon,
duck-confit tacos and half-shell oysters.
to almost 80,000 acres of national and state parks, Washington and Lee
University, the Virginia Military Institute, historic battlefields and
museums, Lexington is a small town with big attractions. Quaint Main
Street is the perfect place to stroll past boutiques, galleries,
restaurants and unique shops, and nearby Shenandoah Valley, Blue Ridge
and Allegheny Mountains are breathtaking backdrops for outdoor fun, like
hiking, kayaking, fly fishing, rafting, skiing and more.
How to Get There
Excellent boutique hotel. Occupied room 15 in the Madison building. Clean and well appointed. Enjoyed a glass of wine on the balcony and then ate a light dinner in Taps downstairs. Food was delicious and service was excellent. The breakfast was made to order and very good. The hotel was romantic and well worth the cost. Further, the small town of Lexington is charming and we walked the streets meeting many friendly residents. We highly recommend the carriage tour which was very informative. It can be arranged at the visitor’s bureau. Washington and Lee and VMI are also highlights. Can’t go wrong at The George’s- by George!
Taps has a very cozy atmosphere and the food was great. The service was impeccable and betsy was amazing. She made the whole experience wonderful. Betsy is extremely knowledgeable of the items featured and the history of the establishment. I definitely recommend going while she is serving.
My niece recently got married in Lexington. Most of my family stayed at the George’s, and we had a fabulous experience. Starting months before with booking the right rooms for family members with different needs, the personal, cheerful attention to detail was evident. The inn is beautiful and charming, but the people working there took it to the next level. I highly recommend it!
