The Georges

The Georges occupies two historic buildings on opposite sides of Main Street in the center of charming downtown Lexington. Our boutique inn offers casually luxurious guest rooms and suites, delicious food made with regional ingredients, and traditional Virginia hospitality— all in an environment that carries the history of the last few centuries, but with every modern amenity and convenience of today. The Georges is home to Haywood’s piano bar, a casual restaurant offering bistro cuisine, great wines and cocktails and entertainment nightly, as well as TAPS lobby lounge, serving the legendary Buffalo Creek Burger, salads, sandwiches, creative cocktails and craft beers.

Personal service and attention to detail are the defining elements of The Georges. Each room is custom designed and furnished to make you feel completely comfortable whether you’re visiting for a night, the weekend, or enjoying an extended vacation. While no two rooms are alike, all of our accommodations come with the same wonderful amenities like Frette bed linens and Peacock Alley blankets, luxurious bathrooms with custom tile work and walk-in showers, complimentary high-speed internet access, newspapers delivered daily, gourmet breakfast and afternoon refreshments. Just 5 minutes from VHC, The Georges welcomes you in boots and hats and offers shuttle service and boxed lunches upon request. Please inquire about special Horse Center rates.
