John & Ellen Roberts run a marvelous Bed & Breakfast in the heart of Lexington. My husband & I have stayed there on many occasions while our son has been at Washington & Lee University. He is graduating in June, but I know we'll make an excuse to come back.
John is from Lexington and is also a certified fly-fishing guide/instructor. Ellen is a golfer and a wonderful breakfast chef -- don't miss out on her omlets! They know every hiking trail and every restaurant in the area. You couldn't find a more gracious and hospitable couple.
Their home is an easy walk to town or to W&L. The rooms are comfortable and cozy. The breakfast table is always a place for lively conversation. It's really a treat to stay there!
