About

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.

Great place, great location!

4.4 on May 10, 2015

The Anderson room was perfect for our family of three. It could accommodate even more with the 2 king sized beds. The little loft area was a hot with our daughter. Small kids could definitely sleep in the loft. Had everything we needed. Breakfast was great each day. Our hosts were very nice and informative. The location can't be beat. A 5-6 minute walk and you are in the historic district. If looking at a historic district map, the Aldrich house is on the Capitol building end of the district. Very charming and a nicely decorated inn. Would recommend to anyone.


Birthday present

5 on May 08, 2015

We stayed one night as part of a birthday package for my wife.. We stayed in the Patton room which was well appointed, had a very comfortable bed and a huge bathroom with a Jacuzzi tub. Its located very close to the colonial section of Williamsburg, the owners/hosts are very friendly, the price was excellent and breakfast was delicious and abundant. The only downside for us was that the building is new construction rather than an old building remodeled so there isn't any real historical sense to the building. Other than that, you won't go wrong here.


Great for Colonial Williamsburg Visitors

4.6 on April 28, 2015

A law in Virginia requires the owner of a B&B live in the house renting rooms, which is different from other B&Bs we've stayed in. This made me feel as though I was invading the owner's private space, although nothing the owners did caused this feeling-just a personal observation. We've always stayed in places that had a manager on site during the stay or living next door. Lovely, period decorations in the home and the owners are extremely knowledgeable about the area having lived there for many years. Gave us great advice about restaurants for dinner and the colonial site. Major attraction of Aldrich House is its proximity to Colonial Williamsburg. You can take a 5 minute walk and be on the grounds. I would stay here again.


Aldrich House Stay 2/20/15-2/22/2015

My husband and I had a very nice stay for a quiet getaway weekend in February. The snow was absolutely beautiful, and our tours around Colonial Williamsburg were VERY chilly, but it was so nice to return to such a cozy and accommodating home in the evenings. We were very impressed with our dining choices for all of our meals, including delicious breakfasts prepared by Tom, lunch at Dog Street Tavern, dinner at King's Arms Tavern, and 2nd Street Bistro. We HIGHLY recommend the bistro as it is so close to the B&B, and they have such a nice variety of choices on the menu. The bed was very comfortable in the Patton room, and the whirlpool tub was much appreciated after a day filled with walking, walking, and more walking. The location is very close to the colonial area; however, due to the snow, it was impossible to make the walk, so we drove to the visitor's center and shuttled to the colonial buildings.


A quick overnight in Williamsburg

We were passing through and stayed one night in this lovely B & B. The rooms were most comfortable, the breakfast delicious, and the hosts warms and welcoming. We enjoyed talking with the other guests at breakfast and liked the cozy atmosphere of the inn. I would definitely stay there again.

Nice Weekend

4.4 on January 31, 2015

I surprised my wife with a weekend getaway to Williamsburg with two of our closest friends. We stayed in the Patton Room and our friends in the Anderson Room. All of us were impressed with the comfort and cleanliness of the rooms. Lots of space as well! Breakfast was served on time and with plenty of coffee. Nice leisurely start to each day. Tom and Sue Patton are very personable and go out of their way to be sure needs are met. I (we) highly recommend a stay at the Aldrich House.


Awesome Experience!

My girlfriend and I stayed at this bed and breakfast earlier this month when we visited Colonial Williamsburg. Our experience was fantastic. The room was so clean and spacious. The breakfasts were delicious! Tom (the owner) was a very gracious host and one heck of a cook! The bathroom we had was almost as big as the room itself. It had his and her sinks, a shower and a tub/jacuzzi. From the house to Colonial Williamsburg took about 10 minutes. Overall we had an absolutely fantastic time here and we will be repeat customers.


Awesome experience!
