Weekend Getaway

The Aldrich House was the perfect place for a weekend early anniversary getaway that was still close to home. The house is immaculately clean, beautifully decorated and furnished and makes for a warm, inviting atmosphere. We stayed in the Lewis Room. It was cozy and comfortable. Breakfast was delicious and filling both mornings. The owners are super friendly and helpful.

Top Notch Value

You can pay more, but you won't get more value for your dollar at any other B&B in Williamsburg, than the Aldrich House. The location is perfect for Colonial Williamsburg, just a 10 minute walk away. The accommodations and amenities are first class. The warmth and professionalism of Tom and Sue are as good as it gets.You won't regret selecting the Aldrich House for your stay.

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!!

A Wonderful Place to Stay

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

First time stay at a bed and breakfast

4.0 on July 07, 2017

This was our first time staying at a bed and breakfast. We were hoping to have a little more interaction with the hosts. We weren't sure what to expect . A face to face greeting with a little information regarding the property would have been appreciated, property was very nice..

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.
