This place is wonderful! Clean, homey, and beautiful. We were there for MLK weekend and had a great time! Conveniently located to all the historic tourism in the area. We had both units on the first floor and shared a washer and dryer. I believe the 2nd floor units each have their own. My daughter uses a wheelchair full time,... More

This resort was just perfect for our extended family getaway. What a pleasant surprise to find that our double unit (2-2bdrm/2ba condos) was all on one floor - made mixing so much easier. Everyone appreciated the quality furnishings and stylish decor. The beds and soft but firm bedding and soft linens. But the bathrooms were the best! The master bath... More

We visited here again the end of September. We keep coming back to this place because we have thoroughly enjoyed each time. The units are clean and spacious. This time we were able to get a newer unit and the furnishings were even better than the other times. We will definitely return.

Two couples enjoyed this spacious, beautifully decorated, comfortable, quiet unit while touring Colonial Williamsburg. I highly recommend it and would use it again on visits to the area. The price is so reasonable, and the resort is a short drive to the historical area.
