Our hearts can not express the gratitude and joy that the Hornsby Inn gave us on our wedding weekend and day. David and his staff are amazing , Jeanette is phenenomal My advice to any bride is to book the entire house including the carriage for your special day and weekend. We had our rehearsal dinner at the Hornsby everyone loved it. Our wedding day was outstandingly beautiful. Our bridal party and family loved every moment of staying at the Hornsby. The house is just stunning. Breakfast is just amazing . Thank you very much For making everything so spectacular Michael and kimberly Ewig
We originally were looking at the White Dog Bistro as a dinner location and the owners of that recommended the Inn at Tabbs Creek. We could not be happier with their recommendation. If you're looking for quiet, relaxing, water (without the wind & surf), and exceptional service this is the place. We enjoyed being able to converse with the other guests, while still maintaining our privacy and intimacy. We had access to the grill, paddle boards, you shouldn't run out of anything to do while there. The town has the old school feel of a town center where you can simply park your car and walk the entire town in about an hour, dipping in and out of 4+ consignment shops, old school pharmacies with the lunch counter, read about the town & county's history, or stumble upon the farmer's market on a Saturday to meet with local artisans and farmers. The sunset cruise was a great opportunity to learn more about the history of Matthews, as well as get out into the bay for a few oysters. Beyond the service, the food, the atmosphere, this was all just 90 minutes from our house west of Richmond, making it a wonderful weekend destination to just get away from everything. Full disclosure: this website wasn't allowing me to rank anything higher than four out of five. I would have though.
This was my first experience staying at a Bed & Breakfast. My husband and I had a great time. The owners went out of their way to ensure our stay was perfect! We will be staying here for year to come. Great location too!
We had a wonderful visit to the Inn at Tabbs Creek. Lori and Greg are wonderful hosts, breakfast was wonderful, and the property is very nice. We stayed in the Bayside Suite which offered plenty of space and a nice kitchenette. We had a very relaxing weekend, enjoying the pool and generally lounging on the property. There were other guests taking advantage of kayaking and sightseeing, so there seems to be no shortage of things to do. We'll definitely be back!
Thanks so the Inn at Tabbs Creek for a secluded and charming ambiance for my husband and I to celebrate our 1st wedding anniversary! The staff was very friendly and accommodating and the grounds were beautiful. Very memorable experience and we hope to be back in the future!
We chose to stay at the Hornsby House because it looked attractive and is conveniently situated for short drives to all the historical sites nearby. Upon our arrival we knew we had made the right choice. The house is as charming as we had hoped and David and Philip warmly greeted us with wine and cheese and crackers on the front patio. Guests can enjoy this area and other welcoming spots in the common areas of the house, like the parlor with a piano, the side porch or the sunlit library. This charming house is filled with lovely antiques and family mementos - we particularly liked the entertaining writings of their mother. Each morning we enjoyed the convivial atmosphere over delicious breakfasts held in the formal dining room. David would tell us of the history and points of interest in the area, along with some amusing family anecdotes! We highly recommend staying at the Hornsby House and look forward to visiting again.
My wife and I celebrated our 43rd anniversary in Colonial Williamsburg over Labor Day and stayed at the Aldrich House B&B in the Patton Room. This B&B is located minutes away from Colonial Williamsburg, but what really makes it special are Tom and Sue Patton. The Patton Room was very clean and well decorated. Tom makes a terrific breakfast and is happy to tell you about the history and current events of the historic triangle. Make sure Sue is joins you also to keep Tom on track. Tom and Sue had the entire breakfast table laughing all morning. Also, Tom and Sue offer a Romantic Package that I highly recommend (hint, have Sue select a red wine, you will be very happy with her selection). Bob & Carole D.
My husband and I went away for our 10th Anniversary over Labor Day weekend. We absolutely loved our time at The Inn At Tabbs Creek! I would highly recommend and already have to friends and family. I just can't say enough about this Bed and Breakfast and the owners.The setting is just beautiful. It's so private and tucked away..The grounds and home are lovely. We actually stayed in a new Suite that was just built on the property. (The Bayside Suite) I was so happy, the suite was incredible. It was a huge space with a King size bed, Jacuzzi tub in the master bedroom, full shower/bath, also there was a living room area beautifully decorated (A large flat screen tv with cable, netflix, etc. and wifi capable.) There was also a small kitchen and sitting area to eat. We had a private area to sit outside of our suite with our own private fire pit. (We could go over and socialize with the other guests at the main home which has a screened in porch as well as open porch areas, or just spend time on our own little porch area.)Both our area and the main house have amazing views of the water and surrounding grounds. There is a place for a bonfire, as well as various seating areas to once again enjoy the view. There is so much there to do. Whether you want to go bike riding, or play on the water. This place has it all. It was one of the most peaceful places I have ever stayed. Both Lori and her husband make you feel so at home! They were just wonderful. Awesome hosts who are on top of everything you might think of, from reservations for dinner, to assisting with an evening boat trip. Also, the food was amazing. Home cooked every morning. We loved the small town, the Restaurants were excellent. The place was just enchanting, you won't want to leave. Thanks again for a lovely time, we will definitely be back!
I arrive late by train and everything was waiting for me as promised. It was easy to follow the instructions to get to my room and I was able to check in officially the next morning at breakfast. The owner was welcoming and gave me helpful information about the town. I had the George Washington room which I found very comfortable and spotlessly clean. It was also conveniently close to the breakfast room where 24 coffee, tea and hot chocolate was available to help yourself to. Snacks were also provided. The location is excellent for exploring the heritage township on foot. I throughly enjoyed my visit to Williamsburg and The Fyfe and Drum was a significant part of my enjoyment of my visit.
My son and I stayed here the night before his freshman orientation at William and Mary. The location was perfect, the breakfast delicious, and the room delightful while equipped with every modern convenience. Thank you for the hospitality, Alex. I will definitely stay here on all my future visits to Williamsburg!
Very hospitable. Tom makes a fantastic breakfast and can tell you all you could ever imagine about the area and its history. The perfect place to stay for a truly relaxing and private Williamsburg vacation.
My wife and I couldn't be more pleased with our recent stay at the Inn At Tabbs Creek. It was beautifully presented on the website and absolutely lived up to the expectation that the website set - something that is not always the case! We are definitely returning there in the future!
This Bed and Breakfast was beyond our expectations for comfort, cleanliness and charm. It's filled with beautiful furnishings and the attention to detail is amazing. Ike, the owner, is warm and welcoming and the staff is very friendly. The breakfast was large and delicious and kept up to it's reputation of a "skip lunch breakfast".We hope to be back soon.
My wife and I stayed at the Liberty Rose to celebrate our 25th anniversary. The stay was phenomenal. We chose the #Rose and Dine option, since we were not familiar with the Williamsburg area and wanted a nice meal as part of our celebration - we were not disappointed. The meal was a 4-Course, Plus 2 and Chef Mike was incredibly accommodating, bringing each delicious course with perfect timing. The room was as incredible as the meal. Beautifully decorated, spacious and accommodating. The Liberty Rose was easy to find, yet the evening was quite and free from road noises. The only sound to interrupt us was the chirp of the cicadas in the trees. Breakfast the next morning was as delicious as the dinner had been the night before, fresh fruit with a creamy yogurt/whipped cream topping, followed by herbed scrambled eggs with cheese, bacon and a French-toasted bread pudding. Yummy. In sum, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Liberty Rose. The food was fantastic, the Rooms were charming, and the staff was gracious and accommodating. It was a great value.
Hospitable hosts, Greg, Lori, and David, make their guests feel welcome and comfortable from the first moment on. The inn is gorgeous, so inviting, and luscious in historic detail. The view is serenely breathtaking and can be enjoyed from the well appointed bedrooms, the lovely pool, a beautiful enclosed porch where we enjoyed a glass of wine with our hosts, or the dock, where the decision to read or enjoy the vista is a tough one. And the hosts are wonderful cooks, too, preparing a variety of opulent breakfasts featuring such delights as heavenly cheese grits, delicious strata, to die for rum raisin bread pudding, and fresh concoctions straight from their garden. My husband and I can't wait to go back! Wysor West Gearhart
We spent the weekend here and it was the best B&B experience we have ever had. The hosts were perfect and had thought of everything in terms of comfort, entertainment, etc. And the breakfasts were the best - all fresh and some of it homegrown.
This was by far our best experience at a B&B. The owners, Lori, and Greg were awesome and so helpful. The rooms were wonderful, we stayed in the Captains Room. It has a view of both sides of the house as well as the backyard and the water. The grounds were kept up beautifully. It didn't matter if you were fishing off the deck, hanging out by the firepit in the evening, bike riding, or just lounging around. This is the place to be. We spent one evening on a sunset cruise with Captain Trey...not to be missed, The sunsets really are as gorgeous as they are in the photo they show. And before I forget, breakfast is not to be missed! AMAZING!!
My husband and I spent a long weekend at the Williamsburg Sampler and absolutely enjoyed every minute of our stay! Ike is a very gracious host and a wealth of knowledge on the area. Lori made a breakfast to die for each morning! The house is very charming and we found our room to be comfortable and clean. We can't wait to return!
The rooms and bed were very nice and lots of privacy. However, the parking was insufficient as there was no where to park. Do not take a large vehicle. The breakfast was a little disappointing as I thought there would be a lot to choose from. Both breakfasts were simple country cooking. While staying in the room, the children from the family next door could be heard often as it seemed that they were hitting up against the wall to the suite. Staff was very nice and the location is fantastic.
Lori & Greg have thought through - and offer - every possible amenity at this historic River-side B&B: individual temp. control in each suite, water sports, bikes, fire pit/smores, Kuerig, whirlpool baths, local organic products in rooms. The historic main home is completely updated, but maintains it's charm, and the cottage rooms are spacious and private. The delicious breakfast buffet has a great selection of home-made food made from local and home-grown ingredients. There's lots to see & do in Matthews, but relaxing on the dock at the Inn is tempting too. We participially enjoyed the twilight boat tour by a local boat captain and oyster fisherman who provided lot's of interesting facts about the area and it's extensive history. Greg & Lori selected this Captain in part b/c he still uses the traditional wooden Chesapeake Bay fishing boat - a special touch indicative of the care Lori & Greg take to ensure their guests have a top-notch experience.
