My husband and I are seasoned B&B travelers, and rarely stay in the same place twice, because we like the experience of something new each time we travel. We return to Governor's Trace, though, first because the Alexander Spotswood room is spacious and perfectly set up for our working vacations; second because it is one of those rare B&Bs that... More

I originally chose this bed and breakfast due to its close proximity to Colonial Williamsburg. After staying for a few days, there is so much more that makes this a desirable getaway spot. We were welcomed very warmly by Dick and Sue, the innkeepers. They were extremely helpful in suggesting good spots for lunch and dinner. We stayed in the... More

We drove down for a quick one night stay in Colonial Williamsburg and booked a last minute stay at Governor's Trace. We definitely enjoyed our stay here. The service was friendly, run but a gentle older couple Sue & Dick. And the location is excellent, within EASY walking distance of Colonial Williamsburg -- under 100 yards. Of which we were... More

I enjoyed a most relaxing visit in May 2013. The room was immaculate, breakfast was beyond delicious complete with candlelight and served in the privacy of my room. Sue & Dick make you feel at home from the minute you walk through their door. They were very helpful with dining suggestions as well as things to see & do in... More
