Aldrich House Bed & Breakfast

505 Capitol Ct , Williamsburg, VA 23185 USA (Show map)


The Aldrich House was built in 1986 in the style of a Colonial Saltbox home and is decorated in an 18th-century fashion. Our home is a perfect mix of current day luxuries and historic charm with spacious rooms and private baths. Our unpretentious atmosphere allows you to feel right at home. Paintings of our forefathers and historic papers and happenings enhance your experience of being in Colonial Williamsburg and helps you learn more about this country of ours. A full breakfast, served family style, consists of a fresh fruit salad, eggs, pancakes, waffles, or oven-baked french toast, a breakfast meat, orange juice, coffee and hot tea and sometimes country sausage gravy and biscuits. Our guests think our proximity to Colonial Williamsburg is perfect(a very easy walk). Come enjoy our home for your trip back into history or to just get away and relax.

Pre-Christmas Williamsburg family vacation

3.6 on January 04, 2017

Our family decided to visit Williamsburg for the weekend before Christmas to have a little time together before the busyness of the Holidays. We wanted a family style accommodation that would allow our young children. Aldrich House was one of very few that allows children and our daughter and son really enjoyed the spacious room and at home feel of a Bed and Breakfast instead of a hotel. Tom and Sue were very hospitable and we enjoyed talking with them during breakfast each morning, which was plentiful and delicious. we will very much consider another stay with Aldrich House when in Williamsburg again.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay

Best Bed and Breakfast I have ever visited!

This bed and breakfast was the best I have ever visited. We had a great time. We were created by Boston the outside cat when we arrived. When we went into the house, we were greater by Tom the owner. Immediately it felt like I came home and my uncle was inviting me in. The room was spectacular. Clean, very well organized, and comfortable. Tom was so knowledgeable about the area. Everywhere he recommended we went and loved. He even recommend little things like parking. The next morning we had breakfast that Tom made and it was the best breakfast I have ever had at a B&B. I recommend Aldrich House to anyone visiting Williamsburg that loves a great price and getting to know great people. Do not stay at a hotel. This is the place to stay!

A delightful B&B

A Very Special B&B

5 on September 12, 2016

My wife and I celebrated our 43rd anniversary in Colonial Williamsburg over Labor Day and stayed at the Aldrich House B&B in the Patton Room. This B&B is located minutes away from Colonial Williamsburg, but what really makes it special are Tom and Sue Patton. The Patton Room was very clean and well decorated. Tom makes a terrific breakfast and is happy to tell you about the history and current events of the historic triangle. Make sure Sue is joins you also to keep Tom on track. Tom and Sue had the entire breakfast table laughing all morning. Also, Tom and Sue offer a Romantic Package that I highly recommend (hint, have Sue select a red wine, you will be very happy with her selection). Bob & Carole D.

Excellent stay at the Aldrich House
