An 'Applewood' a day for a memorable stay. This Flemish bond brick home was built in 1929 by the construction manager for the Colonial Willamsburg restoration and features many finely crafted Colonial details of the 18th century. The owner's unique apple collection is accented by beautiful antiques and 20th C comfort. Guests enjoy a full breakfast served by candlelight in the elegant dining room and afternoon refreshments.

We'll Go Back

We had a delightful stay at Applewood. Denise was the most gracious hostess - very kind, generous, and attentive to our needs. The house and rooms are pretty and inviting. Denise's breakfasts and sweet treats left at the door when we came and went (a wonderful detail) were delicious. Really, no stone was left unturned to insure guests' comfort at Applewood!

Great stay!

Everything was wonderful - clean, friendly, quiet, cheerful. Breakfast was yummy and Denise makes great Christmas cookies! Easy walk to Colonial Williamsburg.

Cosy and Comfy

Wonderful host and convenient location near Colonial Williamsburg and other sights. Great breakfast and spacious room. So happy that we have chosen this B&B for our trip extended from DC.

Excellent stay at Applewood Colonial B&B!

A lovely B&B just as described, short walk to Colonial Williamsburg and right across the street from William & Mary. The owners were gracious and accommodating. Denise made a different breakfast each morning and offered good conversation as well! She didn't even charge me for my room when I had to cut my stay short two days early due to a family illness. I highly recommend Applewood Colonial B&B, it's worth every penny, and it's affordable to boot!

Great stay

I've been coming to Williamsburg for 30 years, and can't believe I only just now discovered Applewood. I never want to stay anywhere else again. The Tree Top Suite was perfect for me, my husband and our teen son. The service and location is wonderful. Denise and Monty are warm hosts. I almost did not want to post a review, because I want to keep this place for myself!

The Real Deal - A Great B&B

Beautiful old home in a neighborhood of similar homes, just a short walk from historic Williamsburg. Our hosts were friendly and attentive. There were many little extras, such as complementary sodas, tea, and bottled water in the room, and tasty and creative breakfast choices.

Great stay

Highly Recommend!

We spent two nights in the Twin Elms Room. Everything is clean and beautifully decorated but what makes it extra special is the hospitality of the owners, who made sure our short trip went smoothly. In-room amenities like coffee, tea and a mini-fridge stocked with soda and water are a nice touch. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful, and was a pleasure to spend time with the hosts and the other family who was staying there. We were even given home-baked banana bread loaves and coffee to go on our way out! We will stay here again when the opportunity arises!

We will definitely be coming back!

Loved our stay in the Treetop Suite - a cozy, but very spacious haven up on the third floor - you have the whole third floor to yourself! Lots of stairs so if that is an issue for you be aware. The room with the queen size bed has a wall-mounted TV, a gas fireplace and is sunny and cheerful, with double doors between it and the rest of the suite. The rest of the suite has a reading corner with a chair, side table, lamp and a bookcase full of books and at the other end a daybed with trundle bed underneath - my favorite spot to curl up and read, watch a DVD on the TV across from it, or catch up on facebook - yes, there's free WIFI. The full bath was charming with a deep vintage-type tub. We loved our suite so much we skipped some evening activities because hanging out in the suite relaxing, watching a DVD, and soaking up the charm and quietness was more appealing. Since our annual visits to Williamsburg for the past 7 years are in August, having a cool enough room has been a problem for us in other bed and breakfasts, but in this room we had our own thermostat which was wonderful. Being the last to check out, I got to peek in the other two rooms on the second floor and they were also lovely and roomier than they looked in the pictures. The Blue Room is cozy and seems to get less sun, and is the smallest, but not as small as it looked in the picture. The Twin Elms Room is bright and cheery and spacious. The innkeeper couldn't be nicer and is a wonderful cook whose delicious breakfasts leave you full and satisfied - wish I had asked for some of her recipes. Delicious freshly baked goodies greet you in the afternoon - impossible to resist. This is definitely a place we look forward to coming back to in the future!
