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.

Aldrich house

3.8 on December 12, 2014

Not in the heart of Williamsburg but the owners make it as cozy as possible. I would like to have seen a communication regarding openness of the kitchen in the evening. That was not understood. I don't need a lot of calories in the evenings but like the options I've seen at other B&B's. Oreos in the cookie jar is what we had available.

Overnight Stay

My Girlfriend and I booked The Patton Room for an overnight stay and shopping trip to this area. The rooms were very nice and the house was in good condition and over all it was very charming. The following morning we went to have breakfast and the owner "Tom" had prepared breakfast for the guest. It was very nice and everything was made fresh that morning. We had diced pineapple and strawberries, waffles, an omelet, and plenty of bacon. It was a very nice experience and I would recommend it to a friend and stay there again myself.

Delightful Home

Good but not great

2.8 on October 14, 2014

Having stayed at a few B&B this last week (Oct 2014) this one was very different. It was definately someones house and you felt a little like you were intruding. The owner was very pleasant but left you alone once arrived. Breakfast time was dictated (8.30am) rather than an option of time as was the food for breakfast. Very clean and convenient for Colonial Williamsburg 9 5 min walk.

Innkeeper Response
Thanks for your review. Sometimes we let our private lives overflow into the business a little too much (thanks for the reminder). Sorry you didn't like breakfast being at a particular time. The majority of our guests are coming to explore Colonial Williamsburg which opens at 9am and we both have held fulltime jobs outside the B&B. So 8:30 worked great for the largest percentage of our guests & for us. We hope you will still refer folks to us letting them know of your concerns. Have a great Thanksgiving & a Merry Christmas.

October stay

The Aldrich B&B was very convenient to the restoration. Their directions for arrival were excellent and included a little humor. The food was delicious and the presentation was pleasing to the eye. Tom and Sue were lovely hosts. We will stay with them on our next visit to Williamsburg.

Innkeeper Response
THANK YOU! Happy Thanksgiving & Merry Christmas! Come see us again soon.

Another great stay at Aldrich House B&B

We recently stayed at the lovely Aldrich House B&B in Williamsburg, Virginia. Tom and Sue are great hosts, there home is very comfortable, and the breakfasts are delicious and varied. This was our second time staying here and we do plan to stay there again.

Innkeeper Response
Thank You! We love repeat guests/friends! Can't wait for you to visit again! Happy Holidays!

Comfy inn

4.0 on October 03, 2014

The inn was nicely decorated, very comfortable and the innkeepers were superb! My only disappointment was that the location of the inn is near a railroad track, so passing trains are audible.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your review. This time of year is when we notice the train also because it's fall & some windows are open & when you live here it becomes back-ground noise. Some people love the sound of a train; some don't. We're sorry it disturbed. Try us out in the summertime when we're locked up nice & tight with the AC on. Have a great Holiday Season!

Thanks Jenny!

Had a great time at the Aldrich House for girl's weekend. The Anderson room was very comfortable for three. Beautiful breakfast and easy conversation with a great host. Would definitely come back!

Innkeeper Response
So glad you girls had a good time. Sorry to have missed you. Jenny is a great innkeeper & I'm so luck to have her as a friend.
