The George Washington Room has original, handsome cedar floors. Hand colored 19th century book prints feature highlights of General Washington's career, and include a pictorial of his introduction to Mrs. Martha Custis of Williamsburg, soon to become his bride. After dashing off your postcards, nestle in your canopied queen sized bed and listen to the distant fifes.

The lilting notes of a fife float through THE CONSERVANCY ROOM's bright windows as you soak in your footed bath. Step down from the tub's raised dias to nestle in the fully-draped four poster bed. This lovely, heart of pine-floored room shouts 'Romance' in the fashion of the 18th century. A portion of the proceeds from this room are donated to the Williamsburg Land Conservancy.

The William and Mary Room overlooks the College to the west. The 1864 map of the Civil War blockades published for Harper's Bazaar recalls an era when the town and the College were occupied by the Union forces during what we still refer to as 'the late unpleasantness'.

The YORKTOWN ROOM features a queen size York County Highpost, original heart of pine floors, plus north and east facing dormered windows. Rates are based on double occupancy.
Maybe you were lucky enough to grow up in a place rich with history. If so, you can understand how the children of Williamsburg often feel like they are in a Nancy Drew or Hardy Boys adventure. Their woodland explorations can yield artifacts, perhaps leading to the discovery of a long-lost historic site. The Richneck Room features a display of 17th, 18th and 19th century artifacts from just such a childhood expedition, resulting in the location and excavation of the 17th century Richneck Plantation.

Billy & Sharon were great hosts. They provided the common room to my wife and me for our last minute wedding, and everything went off without a hitch. Historic Williamsburg was great. All considered, a very satisfying experience!

Great place to stay, walking distance to everything. The rooms were cute and private although doors were a bit... Transparent to noise. Everything was pristinely kept and the staff super helpful. The food was good but nothing spectacular. That said, there are so many GREAT restaurants literal stones throws away that this is of little import, just don't forget to include dining out in your budget. All and all I would recommend and will be back.

Terrific location near the college, Colonial Williamsburg, and loads of dining options. The owners were very knowledgeable and friendly. Breakfast was delicious. This was our first bed and breakfast stay and we weren't quite sure of what to expect; we were pleasantly surprised and would definitely stay again!
