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.

Pleasant stay

4.2 on May 08, 2016

Tom provided and excellent breakfast and very pleasant company. Our room was comfortable, and the experience very homey. The ability to walk to nearby Colonial Williamsburg made this a good place to stay.

Great Time

My husband and I had a "mini" vacation, it was his first time at a B&B and he really enjoyed it. We had a great meal every morning and spent the rest of the day walking around Williamsburg. We look forward to going back again in the near future. Sue and Tom were wonderful hosts!

A Welcome Break

Excellent B&B, welcoming host, superb breakfast. Only thing we needed was an in-room tea & coffee maker.

We have stayed with Tom and Sue many times and each time have been made to feel like old friends. We have stayed in each of the three rooms and found them all to be excellent. The Aldrich house is very family friendly and we have brought two of our grand children with us and they also enjoyed their stay. The breakfast is the best we have had at any bed and breakfast. We also like that the Colonial Village is within walking distance. We plan to return again.

Great journey through history

The innkeeper, Tom Patton, is steeped the history of Jamestown, Williamsburg and Yorktown. His tours vastly exceed in depth and interest any other tours I have experienced. He willingly shares his vast expertise at the breakfast table, even if you don't take his tours. He is actively engaged in the various organizations supporting preservation, historical research and archaeology in the "historic triangle". We couldn't have chosen a better place to stay!

Wonderful 40th anniversary celebration

Our 4-night stay at Aldrich House met all of our expectations. Warm hospitality, lovely breakfasts, reasonable rates, and SO convenient to colonial Williamsburg (5 min. on foot). We would stay there again!

A Great Place to Stay

The Aldrich House is comfortable and inviting. Tom makes the best breakfast and sends you out the door with many places to search out while visiting Colonial Williamsburg. Tom is an outstanding historian that added greatly to our visit.

Nice B&B

My wife and I stayed two nights and we really enjoyed our time at this B&B . Great breakfast made by Tom (owner) . We also scheduled a two hour tour with Tom whom is also a licensed tour guide . We chose the Williamsburg old town tour and Tom is full of knowledge and facts about that era that helped us to understand it more . Plus the personal tour was more interactive than in a large group setting. Room was clean , walking distance to downtown Williamsburg , nice owners , good food and good value . We will be coming back later on this year and will stay here again !!! Thanks

Cozy and clean!

Perfect place close to everything. First time we have stayed in a B&B and we will highly recommend this house.

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!
