We thoroughly enjoyed our time at The Williamsburg Sampler! One of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in! And definitely the best breakfasts we've ever had at any B&B! It was served "family style" with several delicious selections! We also enjoyed hearing Ike's stories during breakfast. If you enjoy antiques and collectibles then you will love perusing the various rooms that house hundreds of items Ike has picked up on his trips all over the world. A lovely stay!

At first we thought the Inn may be noisy as it is on a main road. We were wrong. The rooms are in the back of the house and it was very, very quiet. The atmosphere - perfect. The host and the breakfast - fantastic. As for location - across from William and Mary College, nice walking paths to nearby lakes and wooded paths. Just a delightful weekend getaway.

We recently rented the Williamsburg Sampler for a small family reunion. It was a perfect place for us--very comfortable with several lovely places to relax and chat, a feeling that we were in our own home, exceptional breakfasts and the warmth of Ike and his staff. We look forward to returning.

We had stayed at the Williamsburg Sampler last year for our anniversary. The location is wonderful, being within walking distance to Market Square, William and Mary College and Colonial Williamsburg. We decided to return mostly because of Ike being such a friendly and graceful host. He treats you like family.

The John Smith suite is bigger than it looks in the photos and is very comfortable. The breakfasts were delicious and very filling. The location for activities in the historic triangle couldn't be better, and the owner, Ile is very friendly and accommodating. Highly recommend!

I chose this B&B because they advertise their "skip lunch breakfast" (so big you can skip lunch). It lived up to its name! First day was a buffet with waffles, muffins, toast, eggs, sausage, ham, fresh fruit, fried apples and potatoes, second day we had stuffed french toast (fried apples in between 2 slices of cinnamon french toast with strawberries and chocolate syrup on top), eggs, sausage, potatoes, yogurt w/ fruit and muffins. And a variety of coffee, tea, hot chocolateand/or juice to choose from. We stayed in the Capt. John Smith suite, very nicely sized- the bathroom was a little small but otherwise the room was great! The innkeeper, Ike, was very friendly and told us interesting stories of his experiences.

My wife and I stay two night here while we were in Colonial Williamsburg. The B&B was great. The breakfasts tasted great and we had a variety of foods to choose from. The host was very friendly. We would stay here again and recommend it highly. Mike and Barbara. Arizona

We enjoyed a two night stay here recently. The room was very clean, as well as the bathroom. The bathroom was nicely updated. The bed was a little hard but had lovely sheets. Our suite had a nice sitting room and gas fireplace, as well as an outdoor porch. There was plenty of space and a huge walk in closet. The innkeeper, Ike, was very friendly. He was always available if we needed anything. The location was great - close to Colonial Williamsburg and William and Mary and easy to get to. Breakfast was good - simple but many items to chose from and delicious. My only recommendation would have been room for toiletries in the bathroom - there was only a pedestal sink and no table or place to rest them.
