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.
The Margil Room is representative of the colonial era with its high queen poster bed with fishnet canopy, ladie's writing desk and gold damask wingback chair. Enjoy the modern comforts of a TV/VCR cleverly concealed behind a dollhouse version of the 'Wythe House', AC, Full bath with tub/shower, CD/stereo player, refrigerator and hair dryer.
The cover photo of an Architectural Digest inspired the design of this lovely large room on the second floor. Delicate lace bedhangings fall from the 9ft. ceiling canopy to surround the high queen bed. The effect is light and airy and very romantic. The room also features a wingback chair and ottoman, chaise lounge, vibrant oriental rug, cable tv/vcr hidden inside a dollhouse version of 'Bassett Hall'. Private bath with tub/shower. The room also has a CD/radio alarm & refrigerator.

Applewood was a great "base camp" for our explorations of the Colonial Trianagle. The location is perfect, accommodations comfortable (the blue room is a bit small, but was fine for us). Breakfast was delicious and my special dietary requests were honored.

My husband I recently stayed at the Applewood Colonial B&B in Williamsburg VA as part of an anniversary trip to Colonial Williamsburg. We initially chose the Applewood because of it's location -- and it was perfect! Situated directly across the street from the William & Mary campus, we were a 1/2 mile from the beginning of Colonial Williamsburg's Duke of Gloucester Street and all of the shopping and dining at Merchant's Square. We wanted to walk everywhere, and because of the Applewood's great location that's exactly what we did during our 3 day stay. But location aside, the food, rooms, and company at Applewood Colonial were also outstanding, and part of what made the stay most memorable. Monty & Denise were great hosts, and the breakfasts were delicious! Another couple was staying the same dates as us, and we had a great time getting to know each other over a leisurely and conversation filled breakfast each morning. We highly recommend the Applewood Colonial, and look forward to planning our next trip to stay with them again!

This was my second stay and I wasn't surprised at how friendly the Innkeepers were. They remembered things about me from my first stay and were very inviting. The location is perfectly located for a nice walk into Colonial Williamsburg and is easily accessible to the many other areas around town. I would highly recommend this place. I wont be staying anywhere else during my visits.

We stayed 3 nights and loved it. Denise and Monty were very friendly, warm, and helpful. The room was beautiful. The B&B is just a few blocks from Williamsburg and right across the street from William & Mary College. All 3 mornings we were served a large and beautiful home-made breakfast. Although Richmond is a busy street, the entire house is very quiet inside. We would highly recommend the Applewood. Ann & Jim Mansfield, Copsta Mesa, CA.

Applewood is perfectly situated within easy walking distance of historic shopping and downtown Colonial Williamsburg. The rooms make it seem like I stepped back in time without feeling cramped. Denise does a wonderful job cleaning daily. Best of all, the hosts are very friendly and phenomenal cooks. The daily baked goods and delicious breakfasts will definitely bring me back to Applewood! ~L.P.
