Charming B&B in Rural Tidewater Virginia

5 on August 14, 2017

Our spacious bedroom had an exceptionally comfortable king-size bed and a large bathroom with bath/shower combination. Every detail is attended to from the bathrobes, excellent selection of wines for purchase, available refrigerator, wonderful public areas with books and games, and a wide selection of TV channels. Tanya and Mike are wonderful hosts who made us feel very welcome and were attentive to our needs. The breakfast was extensive and very good. The B&B sits on a large property with lots of hiking. This was one of the best B&Bs we have ever stayed at.

Like waking up in Snow White

We stayed in both the main house and the hen house and both were delightful. The main house reminded me of waking up in an old romantic musical. The touches of antiques through the room and cast iron were gorgeous, but nothing prepared me for the stay in the hen house. When we got in it was dark and I couldn't quite see around the extravegant renovated chicken coop. I woke up to birds chirping and goats outside our window. It was straight out of a country fairy tale and a gorgeous experience, followed by one of the best breakfasts I have ever had.

Perfect retreat

Mike and Tanya were gracious and accommodating hosts. The house is exquisite and the grounds are lovely. Coffee on the screened in porch is the best way to start the day, and I loved rambling down to see the goats, sheep, and horses. Thank you!

Loved Everything!

We couldn't have been more pleased with Peace Hill. It was a true pampered bed and breakfast experience. Every need was thought of. The Hosts are wonderful people. A definite do again.

Perfectly Peaceful at Peace Hill

Husband and I went for 2 nights to celebrate anniversary. Weather didn't cooperate for bike riding but the Inn was great. Chikahominy Suite was very relaxing and comfortable. Breakfasts were delicious and plentiful. Gift of muffins for the road was a nice suprise. Enjoyed having so much space to walk around in with out having to get in car.

Great for Family Vacation

We booked the Chickahominy Suite for five days in August for our family. Sleeping accommodations were perfect, slept great in the peace and quiet of the country. Breakfasts were amazing! My daughter and I are vegan (hubby is not) and Tanya went "above and beyond" with her amazing creations. I've stayed at Vegan B&B's and the food at Peace Hill is just as good, creative and fresh. We used Peace Hill as home base as we explored history in Jamestown, Yorktown, Williamsburg, and Plantations. We enjoyed the use of the Common Areas to relax in the evenings and get caught up on Olympic actions. Mike and Tanya are wonderful hosts.

Our family of 8 - 6 kids, ages 11 and under plus 2 adults - stayed at the brand new Henhouse. We loved it, the innkeepers were so helpful, friendly, and all around wonderful hosts. The food was fantastic, they easily accommodated our gluten free diet. Everything was clean, the Henhouse was well stocked with games, basic kitchen supplies, books, etc. We will definitely be back!

Weekend Getaway!

5 on March 04, 2016

We had a good stay! We were going to pass on having breakfast but once we smelled the aroma of fresh eggs, bacon and homemade biscuits we could not pass it up. The breakfast was great and Mike & Tanya's easy company made it even more enjoyable. We highly recommend staying here! Oh almost forgot...Tanya's bag of cookies to go were the best!!!!

Great Girlfriend Getaway

5 on March 18, 2015

My friends and I decided to try The B&B at Peace Hill for a "Girlfriend Getaway in Williamsburg". We wanted to visit the nearby winery and Antique Mall, so this was the perfect end to our day. Relaxing, peaceful, great food and hosts! We enjoyed ourselves so much we decided to put this hidden treasure on our future getaway list.
