About

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.

"We will definitely return for the Grand Illumination"

5 on April 19, 2017

Wonderful experience! The Aldrich house was our home away from home! After our long drive from northern Delaware, my husband and I arrived at the Aldrich house very late in the evening. The Pattons accommodated our late arrival by leaving the lights on for us and arranging for us to pick up our keys after hours. We were pleasantly surprised at the size of our room (the Patton room) and the adjoining bathroom. Aesthetically, the room was decorated beautifully. If you are fond of history and art you will certainly appreciate the detail that the owners have put into the Aldrich house. Breakfast was served at a designated time each morning. I can be very picky about food (because I enjoy it so much), and yet I must say that I had zero complaints about the food or its service. The dining room table was beautifully set, which made my husband and I feel like special guests. The first day we were served crepes with a seasoned egg dish, Canadian bacon and a delicious fruit salad. The next day waffles were served in lieu of crepes. The host and hostess were very knowledgeable about the local attractions as well as the general history of Williamsburg, Jamestown, and Yorktown. My husband and I adored the fact that we could walk to colonial Williamsburg from the Aldrich house in the blink of an eye. As a side note, I truly appreciated the fact that a t.v. was not the focal point of the living room (would have taken away from the nostalgia of visiting a colonial town). We will definitely return to the Aldrich house for the Grand Illumination in December!


Awesome!

3rd time at the Aldrich House

4.4 on March 08, 2017

This was our 3rd time at this charming B & B. We love being able to walk to the historic district of Williamsburg. The breakfast was delicious, and the Pattons are lovely hosts. It has all the charm of old Williamsburg and yet has the comforts of modern day living. We will return to this B & B next time we are in town. We highly recommend it.


A warm inviting place to stay

My husband and I love visiting Williamsburg but we always have a dilemma as to where we stay. After staying at the Aldrich House, we know where we will stay in the future. The accommodations were very comfortable and inviting. Our hosts were very engaging and warm. Being within walking distance to the historical district was an additional asset.


Execellent!

My gf and I stayed at the Aldrich House because we loved how the place looked and it was literally 5 minutes away from Colonial Williamsburg! It was like staying at our families house...uncle Tom and Sue (lol) are incredibly sweet folks and they're great conversationalists! They're both very knowledgeable about Williamsburg and can help and direct you around to get the best experience possible. Tom had breakfast ready every morning at 8:30 on the dot and his meals were very appetizing and filling. Between eggs, bacon, blueberry crepes, sausage, coffee, fresh fruit, orange juice...we never left the B&B hungry! We stayed in the Patton room and it was SO comfortable. Very clean and tidy, the bathroom was great with dual sinks, stall shower and jacuzzi tub. We enjoyed every bit of it! As an extra point, they have the entire place decorated with historical pictures and items...it really helps to immerse you in historical Williamsburg! We will definitely be staying there again in the future!


Extremely pleased......

Was very very happy with everything and couldn't have asked for more. Tom and Sue were more than hospitable, breakfast was amazing (you will not leave hungry!!).


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

My wife and I stayed here 3 nights beginning of December 2016. We'll have to say everything was perfect. Would happily recommend to anyone. Loren and Beth Rogers
