Aldrich House Bed & Breakfast

505 Capitol Ct , Williamsburg, VA 23185 USA (Show map)


The Aldrich House was built in 1986 in the style of a Colonial Saltbox home and is decorated in an 18th-century fashion. Our home is a perfect mix of current day luxuries and historic charm with spacious rooms and private baths. Our unpretentious atmosphere allows you to feel right at home. Paintings of our forefathers and historic papers and happenings enhance your experience of being in Colonial Williamsburg and helps you learn more about this country of ours. A full breakfast, served family style, consists of a fresh fruit salad, eggs, pancakes, waffles, or oven-baked french toast, a breakfast meat, orange juice, coffee and hot tea and sometimes country sausage gravy and biscuits. Our guests think our proximity to Colonial Williamsburg is perfect(a very easy walk). Come enjoy our home for your trip back into history or to just get away and relax.

New Year's at Aldrich House

4.2 on January 05, 2016

Sue and Tom Patton are perfect hosts -- and the breakfast fare was plentiful and delicious. The house is well maintained, beautifully decorated, and located within a 10-minute walk to Colonial Williamsburg. The neighborhood is mixed; not well lit at night, so returning to the colonial area from Aldrich House for dinner required a car. For the number of hours we spent in the Lewis Room on the 2nd floor (stairs), it was adequate, but close-quartered The common area was lovely, open and welcoming. With just three guest rooms, Aldrich House is an intimate environment -- it was easy to greet and get to know the other guests at breakfast. Thank you, Sue and Tom!

Walk to the historic area. Enjoy a marvelous breakfast and good conversation each morning. Take advantage of Tom's extensive knowledge of the region. Be sure to get a bottle or two of Sue's BarBQ sauce before leaving.

My husband and I stayed here for a quick getaway before having a baby in the spring. We enjoyed the accommodations (especially breakfast!) and found the location to be very convenient to Colonial Williamsburg.

Awesome getaway

This was the perfect place to stay to see Williamsburg. The house is within walking distance. The owners are very gracious people and eager to offer information and directions about the area. The house is very comfortable and clean. We felt right at home. Breakfast was a real feast each day with something different. We had a perfect vacation and would highly recommend this place to others.

Hidden Coloinal Williamsburg Gem -- Aldrich B&B

3.8 on August 10, 2015

Our summer stay was wonderful -- walking distance (5 min) from Colonial Williamsburg.. Innkeepers Tom and Sue are fantastic and super friendly. They have great recommendations for local dining and sightseeing and Tom is an amazing tour guide if you opt to take his private guided tour. If you are a history buff, you definitely want to stay here and be able to walk to Williamsburg as well as chat up Tom for little-know facts. We loved it!

Great Value...Nice B&B

3.6 on August 08, 2015

Stayed at Aldrich House 3 nights to explore Williamsburg. A 15 minute walk to Old Town. Tom Patton also does tours and is a great resource for information about the city and it's great history. We were there late July and the room and house was very comfortable even though very hot outside. Very roomy bedroom and bath. Nothing is very fancy, but a very good, clean, comfortable B&B with very reasonable rates. We'd definitely stay there again.
