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.

Lovely B&B. Easy walking distance to the historic district. We visited several days during a July heat wave. The house was kept nice and cool. The convenient location allowed our family to walk back and take a break during the heat of the afternoon before heading back out for the evening. Tom and Sue are lovely people. Very friendly to talk with. Helpful but not intrusive. Tom makes a great hearty breakfast to get your day started. Highly recommend. We plan to return. Thank you Tom and Sue!!

This was our third time staying at the Aldrich House and I would not hesitate to stay there again. I would recommend anyone going to the Williamsburg area to stay here. The rooms were extremely clean and comfortable and the breakfasts were filling and delicious. The hosts were simply great--very friendly and accomodating. The parlor was a great gathering place as well as the deck.

Wonderful vacation!

We wanted a leisurely stay to immerse ourselves in the history of the region.Tom and Sue helped us to step back in time before exploring colonial Williamsburg, Jamestown and Yorktown. Their home is tastefully decorated with period pieces and pictures.The breakfasts were awesome and Tom was very knowledgeable about local history and helpful in suggesting possible places to visit. The bed was very comfortable and the room was very inviting. We would highly recommend their bed and breakfast to anyone travelling in the area. We will be back! John & Hye-Seung Byler

Tom and Sue were wonderful, friendly hosts. We had a very comfortable, clean quiet room (Patton) and excellent breakfasts. Tom is an amazing wealth of knowledge of the historic triangle and we thoroughly enjoyed his tour of Jamestowne.

"We will definitely return for the Grand Illumination"

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!
