We stayed 2 nights at this hotel. Our room, the Lincoln Suit, was beautiful, clean, and all we could have asked. The inn keepers were off to take their daughter to college, but left us in the hands of a very friendly, professional couple that do inn sitting. Our breakfasts were delicious and hearty. The location of this inn is ideal for your visit to Colonial Williamsburg.

I loved our stay in Williamsburg. I chose it from the computer at home, no personal recommendations. the website correctly describes the property. It was a short walk from the historic area of town. Very nice owners, Debbie and John. Clean rooms, great food, a wonderful place to stay.

We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful inn to stay in. We stayed in the well appointed Washington Suite for five nights. The owners, Debbie and John, are wonderful hosts that make you feel right at home. The breakfasts were tastefully fantastic. The central location of the inn is ideal. Guests can walk across the street to visit the beautiful William and Mary Campus. Colonial Williamsburg is a short walk up the street and Jamestown and Yorktown are short drives. We will not hesitate to stay at the inn again and would recommend it to anyone looking for a bed and breakfast in Williamsburg.

We have stayed in many of the B&B's in Williamsburg but this one exceeded our expectations. The owners live on the premises and made themselves available whenever we needed them but were not always in our space. We loved the breakfast each morning and would come back again just for the Stuffed French Toast. The rooms were clean and well maintained and the other guests were great to share stories with at breakfast. We really enjoyed the free wifi and free parking. A Special treat when you are from DC! We will be back.

Found this beautiful Inn online and was extremely pleased upon arrival. It is gorgeous in the spring in Williamsburg and this old home fits right in. We stayed in the Adams Bedroom and slept so well we didn't want to leave. The breakfast each morning was delicious and Debbie even shared her recipes with us. We found ourselves in need of a taxi one evening which never showed up so John drove us to our restaurant. We have nothing but wonderful things to say about the White House from its cleanliness to fabulous decor to the helpful and friendly staff. We truly hope to get back to Williamsburg again soon.
