We stayed in The Brick House Tavern right on Duke of Gloucester Street. We opted for twin beds and our room was delightful- not big, mind you but more than adequate. The tavern was built in the 1700s and was beautifully appointed with canopies and side curtains on the beds, a window overlooking the back, a desk, two dressers and... More

A group of six of us rented the Ewing House in front of the Williamsburg Inn for our College of William and Mary class reunion. It worked very well for this purpose. The Colonial Williamsburg bus stops rights in front, and it's a pleasant and easy walk back from the old campus to this house. The rooms were comfortable and... More

I have visited Williamsburg numerous times over the years, as a tourist, researcher and blacksmith. I was always curious about the Colonial Houses and those who got to stay in them. This year, for July 4th weekend, I decided to satisfy my curiosity. There are lodgings for couples and larger families, from stand-alone buildings to tavern rooms. There are also... More

The Colonial Houses in Williamsburg are a neat way to experience Williamsburg. Their central location provides easy access to DOG St. (Duke of Gloucester Street) and the historic center’s taverns. We enjoyed walking the quiet lanes early in the morning and late at night, happening upon a fife-and-drum performance, folks in colonial-era garb strolling the streets, little lambs in a... More

Across the street from the historic district, WIFi unaccessible, but then again it was nice to disconnect from the computer for a few days. Rooms immaculate, housekeeping staff and Inn front desk staff wonderful. I have been to the ara many times and always wanted to stay in one of the colonial homes. Felt like being at Gramdmas house :)

We come to Colonial Williamsburg every year. We gave stayed in a colonial house for the last 5 stays. They are not luxurious but are period furnished and charming. We like the houses on Duke of Gloucester street as you do not have to cross a road to get to town. Waking up and looking out your window is like... More

My husband and I rented a little house that used to be the kitchen house for the large home next-door. We were only a few doors away from the governor's palace in Williamsburg. It was like being part of living history. It was a two room house with a living room downstairs and a small bedroom and bath upstairs. I... More

We stayed at the brick house tavern. the rooms are quiet small on the 2nd floor but bigger on the 1st floor. So definitely ask for the 1st floor rooms. I could get wifi easily in the room and around the tavern. It is very meaningful to stay in the historical house rather than normal hotels. It will be great... More

We spent a very nice weekend in Orrell House. Our family of nine which included three small children under the age of three were able to enjoy our stay in Colonial Williamsburg. While the house was not very fancy and could use bathroom updates it worked fairly well for our family. As we were traveling with small children being able... More
