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.

Stunning house

Everything about this B and B was wonderful. We would recommend it to anyone

Best B&B in the area

Tom and Sue are the best! Absolutely the best home made, delicious breakfast, we were stuffed every morning! The house is wonderful, rooms are large and spacious, and very clean. Loved this place, can't wait to come back!

Nice people, great location, yummy breakfasts!

The Aldrich House has a nice homey feel to it with excellent hosts. The breakfast was great both mornings. I would recommend this place as a nice, middle of the road option. It's not fancy and over the top, nor is it bottom of the line. It's a nice place to stay for a night or two.

Excellant home-away-from-home for a Williamsburg vacation!

So, you're planning to visit Colonial Williamsburg. Let me guess, you'd like to stay within walking distance of the colonial area and you'd prefer a full breakfast at 8:30am, seated at a dining room table enjoying polite conversation, instead standing in line at 6:30am somewhere near a hotel lobby trying to get a partial bowl of dry cereal and half-a glass of watery orange juice. Look no further. Tom and Sue will be glad to welcome you into their tranquil B&B for a restful night's sleep followed by a well-prepared, delicious breakfast that will easily power you through miles of strolling through the 1700's. Both days we were treated to a breakfast of eggs, bacon or sausage, pancakes or waffles, a mixture of fresh fruit, juice, and coffee, at a well-appointed table surrounded by, in our case, four or five other guests who were quick to share stories of their travels. If you're in a hurry however, be careful, because it's easy to get lost in conversation and spend an hour at the breakfast table with those other guests or the very welcoming hosts. We enjoyed our stay and look forward to repeating it.

Aldrich House B&B

5 on August 06, 2014

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Aldrich House B&B. As noted in our ratings everything about the property was outstanding and Tom and Sue made us feel very welcome. The B&B is also very conveniently located about a 10 minute drive from historic Williamsburg. Joe and Sally, Alexandria, VA

Comfy cozy near CW & W&M

Just completed our second stay in the Anderson Room in 3 weeks. Perfect for families because there are two king beds and a little hideaway for a small child. Tom's breakfasts are ample, hearty, and tasty- no need for lunch! Tom is also a wealth of historical knowledge and what's happening in the city. Stay in Tom and Sue's homey b&b!

Very good B&B !

The room was very nice and cosy. Location is very good: walking distance of Historic Williamsburg & 10 min. drive from Busch Gardens. The breakfast was tasty. We felt very welcome !

One of the few B&B's with a room with two beds. Best B&B breakfast I've had in years. And keep on the lookout for "The Welcome Cat," quite irresistible!!!

Homely welcome in Williamsburg

This was our second visit to Aldrich House. We stayed there in 2011 and when we planned a repeat two-night visit to Williamsburg we had no hesitation in booking the Patton Room again. Tom and Sue make their guests very welcome. There are just three guest rooms so the inn has a nice, homely feel to it. We've stayed in the ground floor Patton Room both times. It's very comfortable and well appointed. The breakfast will set you up nicely for the day. As long time residents of Williamsburg Tom & Sue can offer lots of guidance to their guests about what to do and see in the locality. Tom is a tour guide to the historic sites of Jamestown and Williamsburg so he really knows his stuff. Aldrich House is outside the centre of Williamsburg. Parking can be an issue at busy times in Williamsburg itself but you may well prefer to leave your car at Aldrich House. From there it's a pleasant walk - about 25 minutes - to the heart of Williamsburg. There's a great deal to see in Colonial Williamsburg. One thing we missed first time round is the campus of William and Mary University. That's well worth strolling round, not least to see how successfully the any new buildings have been combined with the historic old buildings. The Christopher Wren building is especially interesting. If you're visiting Virginia Williamsburg is a must-see and Aldrich House is an ideal place to use as your base.

We stayed at the Aldrich House for our 25th Anniversary. It was a wonderful place to stay. We only had to walk a short distance to get to Colonial Williamsburg. The breakfasts were way beyond our expectations. Tom took us on two historical tours, one of Jamestown and one of Yorktown. He really knows his history and gives you a lot of information. I would recommend this bed and breakfast to anyone. We stayed for a week and couldn't have been happier with everything about it. The neighborhood is quiet and you feel like you are away from everything when you are there. It was very relaxing.
