Our family of 8 - 6 kids, ages 11 and under plus 2 adults - stayed at the brand new Henhouse. We loved it, the innkeepers were so helpful, friendly, and all around wonderful hosts. The food was fantastic, they easily accommodated our gluten free diet. Everything was clean, the Henhouse was well stocked with games, basic kitchen supplies, books, etc. We will definitely be back!


Weekend Getaway!

5 on March 04, 2016

We had a good stay! We were going to pass on having breakfast but once we smelled the aroma of fresh eggs, bacon and homemade biscuits we could not pass it up. The breakfast was great and Mike & Tanya's easy company made it even more enjoyable. We highly recommend staying here! Oh almost forgot...Tanya's bag of cookies to go were the best!!!!


Great Girlfriend Getaway

My friends and I decided to try The B&B at Peace Hill for a "Girlfriend Getaway in Williamsburg". We wanted to visit the nearby winery and Antique Mall, so this was the perfect end to our day. Relaxing, peaceful, great food and hosts! We enjoyed ourselves so much we decided to put this hidden treasure on our future getaway list.


Warm Hospitality

We loved our stay at Peace Hill. It has country feel, yet with lots of amenities. We stayed in the Holdcroft Room, which is ideal for a couple looking for a getaway. The hosts, Mike and Tanya, were very warm and hospitable--getting to know them enhanced the experience. The proximity to the "Historic Triangle" of Williamsburg, Jamestown and Yorktown was a plus. I wish we had booked a second night.


Peace and Quiet

Life at a slower pace was desired and received on our stay at Peace Hill. Having the place to ourselves was an extra benefit, only adding to the need for a night away from life. The surrounding countryside covered in snow added to the serenity of the place. Our evening supper and breakfast were very good with homemade biscuits and jelly. Thank you for a great stay.

An excellent stay

4.4 on October 11, 2014

We have had a very good experience at the Peacehill B&B. The room was confortable and extremely clean. The King bed was fabulous. The breakfasts were delicious and it was with anticipation that we arrived in the breakfast room as they were different everyday! Tanya and Mike were extremely good hosts discussing with us the region and nearby attractions. The place was very peaceful. We’ll make sure to come back. Dominique and Marc


Perfection

This area has always been a respite for me...if you haven't found your way out here yet, do yourself a favor! The inn is absolutely beautiful and Tanya and Mike are the most wonderful hosts. They go above and beyond in every way. Your stay (and your meals!) will be amazing!
