An 'Applewood' a day for a memorable stay.

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.

Wonderful Stay

4.6 on October 22, 2015

The minute you walk into Applewood Colonial B and B, you will feel immediately at home; Denise and Monty are wonderfully gracious, fun and helpful people, that you just relax straight away. They have a lovely home full of interesting antiques and curios, without being over fussy and we just felt so relaxed here. Denise cooks a substantial breakfast that was tasty and filling and certainly set us up for the day. We stayed in the Blue Room which was a smaller room but more than adequate for us, although it could have done with maybe a bit more lighting. It was very clean and comfy with a wonderful bed. The inn is walking distance to downtown Williamsburg and is in a great location. We enjoyed our conservations with Denise and Monty and after just two nights felt we had known them for longer and wish them all the very best.

Great place to stay.

We were welcomed into their home and made to feel special our entire stay. The owners went above and beyond to make sure our stay was outstanding. We would highly recommend this Bed and Breakfast to anyone visiting Williamsburg. It's worth every penny of the cost charged!

Thoroughly recommended

All the facilities were excellent but what made our stay particularly delightful was the friendliness of the owners who made us feel right at home.

Applewood Colonial B&B

4.2 on March 21, 2015

My husband and I spent 2 nights at the Applewood Colonial B&B and loved every minute. Denise's B&B has a perfect location, just a few blocks away from historic Williamsburg, and within walking distance to some small eateries close to William and Mary for those of us who arrive and need a bite to eat without having to drive to the commercial end of town. Our Twin Elms Suite was cozy and comfortable and appointed with every necessity we could have requested. Denise is an outstanding hostess and cooks a delicious breakfast for her guests. We both look forward to a return visit on our next trip south. We have stayed in quite a few B&B's and Applewood is one of the best. We would stay here again in a heartbeat!

first time stay at bed and breakfast

4.0 on March 01, 2015

This was our first time to Williamsburg and first time ever staying at a bed and breakfast. We are so glad we chose Applewood! The Blue Room was great and the breakfasts each morning were delicious. We were made to feel right at home! I want to give 5 stars but for some reason the review site won't let me fill all 5 bubbles. Overall we had no complaints and if we are ever in the area again will be back to stay there!

Wonderful Weekend at Applewood

5 on February 18, 2015

My husband and I had a wonderful weekend stay at Applewood in the Tree Top Suite. The Suite was cozy, comfortable and spotlessly clean, plus full of charm and had every amenity we could want. The fire was lovely, the sheets were incredibly soft, and the bed and pillows were so comfortable, we slept really well. Monty and Denise were such friendly and gracious hosts, warm and welcoming and with lots of historical and local information to share. They made us feel truly at home and the breakfasts were absolutely delicious. We would absolutely stay here again, and will recommend to all our friends! Thank you for a wonderful stay!

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!
