We just got back from our trip to Williamburg and love our location within walking distance to everything. Billy an Sharon were great owners that seemed to know everything there is to do and see with great tips and maps. My only disappointment is I think they could have a bigger assortment in breakfast choices.

My husband & I celebrated our 9th Anniversary with a trip to Colonial Williamsburg. We decided to splurge a little and stayed at Fife & Drum Inn. Billy is a great host and extremely accommodating (We checked in a bit early b/c it was close to 100 degrees outside and just needed to cool off!). We stayed in the George... More

I have been coming to Colonial Williamsburg for business and pleasure for over 50 years and have stayed at about everyplace available. By and far the Fife and Drum is the best place to be hands down. It is close to William and Mary and Merchants Square as well as the bus stop for the Historic District. The coffee shop... More

The owners Sharon and Billy were extremely helpful with the visit and the rooms were very nice. The step in showers were a welcome change from having to step into a bathtub, which always feels dangerous. Another great thing is the location. A block from the Williamsburg site. You don't have to use the car or deal with traffic. They... More

I have rarely stayed at a Bed and Breakfast but the location of the Fife and Drum was a deciding factor. It is within walking distance of everything we wanted to do in Williamsburg. The rooms are clean and well appointed;in the dining sitting area were lemonade and cookies as well as hot water to make tea Best of all,... More

Colonial Williamsburg is the Disneyland of history. Staying at the Fife and Drum was one of the best decisions of our vacation! I took my granddaughter on a pre civil war history trip which included Boston, MA, Plymouth, MA and Colonial Williamsburg (CW), VA. We stayed in several places but I decided to splurge on the Fife and Drum B&B... More

Had a wonderful stay, and Billy was very helpful in organizing a canoeing excursion with my 2 children…my 8 year old son very much enjoyed the apple sauce and egg breakfast dish, and Billy was kind enough to share the recipe…next time we're in town, the Fife and Drum is our first choice!

My wife and I had a great stay at the Fife and Drum Inn this past weekend in Williamsburg. In terms of location, you can't beat it. It's located conviniently in walking distance to Merchant Square and to Colonial Williamsburg. We did not have to drive anywhere. We decided to stay in the Conservancy Room, and we were not dissapointed.... More

My wife and I have visited Williamsburg, VA many times and we found the Fife & Drum Inn to very convenient to Colonial Williamsburg and everything is within walking distance. Our room was excellent and the morning breakfasts were very good. Both Billy and Sharon were very accommodating and knowledgeable about sites, attractions and places to eat. We expect to... More
