My husband and I spent a long weekend at the Williamsburg Sampler and absolutely enjoyed every minute of our stay! Ike is a very gracious host and a wealth of knowledge on the area. Lori made a breakfast to die for each morning! The house is very charming and we found our room to be comfortable and clean. We can't wait to return!

The rooms and bed were very nice and lots of privacy. However, the parking was insufficient as there was no where to park. Do not take a large vehicle. The breakfast was a little disappointing as I thought there would be a lot to choose from. Both breakfasts were simple country cooking. While staying in the room, the children from the family next door could be heard often as it seemed that they were hitting up against the wall to the suite. Staff was very nice and the location is fantastic.

When we arrived our welcome was a lovely invitation . Our host, Ike, was informative and helpful so we were able to take advantage of all the best that Williamsburg had to offer in the limited time we had. May we add the breakfast was fantastic so we could go all day and catch an early dinner ¿¿. We would not hesitate to recommend this lovely B & B¿¿ with its eclectic international collections. Tickled from Kentucky!

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.
