Newport House is not just a wonderful colonial B&B. The guests are treated to a five-star history lesson at breakfast with John Millar's stories of lesser-known events in Colonial times and accounts of his historic ship-building projects. His narration of the fascinating story of the Colonial-era pirate ship “Batchelor’s Delight” is not to be missed. John is a historian with... More

If you're looking for a place to stay in Williamsburg that will fit with the idea of exploring the past, look no further! My husband and I have visited Williamsburg quite a few times, with our daughter now a graduate of the College of William & Mary. This time she met us there for a long weekend. We've stayed at...

If I did not live in the UK I would be tempted to stay at Newport House on a regular vacation basis. Apart from Colonial Williamsburg being such a fascinating place, John and Cathy Millar are delightful people. Add into the equation John's almost limitless knowledge of history, and Cathy's absolutely beautiful garden.... well, to be honest five stars are... More

We loved staying at this awesome house. It's really an authentic experience, true to colonial period decor. The Millar's are so kind and accommodating -- and very interesting to listen to as well! They are a wealth of knowledge and listening to their historical stories over breakfast is part of the experience! So much fun! The house and gardens are... More

My husband and I traveled the beautiful state of Virginia following the path of the Civil War. We took a few days in Colonial Williamsburg to take a step further back in history. We were very comfortable staying in the Newport House and enjoyed the hosts Cathy and John. Cathy was charming and shared with us some of her interests... More

This was our second stay at The Newport House and we absolutely love it. The bedrooms are always clean. The house was made to be as historically accurate as possible so be prepared for the locks to only work when you are inside the bedroom. Plan extra time for breakfast because the host, John, always has wonderful historical stories to... More

What a delightful spot to stay in this little historical burg of Americana! If you are traveling to Williamsburg to experience life in colonial times, Newport House will immerse you in the history before you step out the door. It is architecturally accurate to the colonial period and filled with antiques/reproductions of the period. The bedroom was lovely and the... More

This is the quintessential B&B experience, combining 18th century ambience with 21st century comfort. The house is within walking distance of Colonial Williamsburg, so we never had to use the car. The proprietors are friendly, helpful and well informed. The historical breakfast recipes were fascinating and tasty. John is an avid historian with many less-well-known stories to tell. Be sure...

My daughter and I had a lovely, gracious, fascinating four day stay at Newport House B&B. My daughter began her studies at William and Mary so we arrived early for orientation.

Cannot imagine staying anywhere else in Williamsburg, VA! John and Cathy Millar are amazing hosts, and enriched our family vacation. They provided great travel recommendations, insight into the past and the present in that part of the country, and were just a delight. This B & B is charming, comfortable and special; it is beautifully furnished and maintained. Guests enjoy... More
