Our stay at the Hornsby inn was wonderful. Our room was big and beautiful. Our breakfast was delicious and our host was so charming! We enjoyed his company and historical knowledge of Yorktown. He gave me a copy of house rules that his mother wrote in 1959 for him and his brothers. Funny how things don't change when you're a... More

The Hornsby House is everything you want in a bed and breakfast. I can't put it any more simply. We coordinated to arrive late and approached the property after dark on a cold December night. A simple punch code opened the electronic deadbolt and once inside we were delivered into the beautiful Monument Grand Suite. The fireplace was preloaded with... More

My wife and I booked into the Hornsby House Inn having seen this on the internet and booked by phone with one of the owners, Dave who was holidaying in Las Vegas. We requested the Hornsby suite on the third (top) floor for three nights. We arrived on a Friday night and found the front door open and a draft... More

I stumbled upon this gem by the referral of a retired army officer. When passing on the street, and innately trusting his countenance, I asked him where a nice place in town would be for my wife and I. Without hesitation, he nearly ordered me to the Hornsby House, and gave me directions. I am forever grateful, as I was... More

We stayed at the Hornsby House Inn last week and would highly recommend this B&B. The hosts, Dave and Phil Bowditch, brothers who grew up in the house, were awesome hosts. We were greeted upon arrival and immediately were welcomed to their home. The house is very clean and spacious, breakfasts were delicious and plentiful, and wine and cheese time... More

David and Phil have a gem here in Yorktown. On the river for astonishing sunrises and walking distance from unique lunch and dinner haunts. Plus wine, cheese and conversation on the patio in summer and by the fire other times. It is "a winner."

My wife and I just returned home from a weekend stay at the Hornsby House Inn. What a fantastic weekend it was. The hospitality of owner Dave Bowditch and his Innkeeper Kirsten was beyond anything we expected. From the beautiful Inn to the spacious comfortable bedrooms to the amazing breakfasts to the wine and cheese get togethers at 5:00PM, it... More

Beautiful location in Yorktown…lovely home, owned for generations by the family. What a delight to see the history of this family on the walls of this home. David, the owner, spends time with you, shares stories and is so knowledgeable about the history of the area. He has a great personality! Jamestown and Williamsburg are a short drive away so...

Staying at the Hornsby is adding a special ingredient to a visit to Yorktown – the intangible imparting to the visitor of a sense of place, comfortable elegance, and our host’s graciousness and making one feel welcome. The experience staying here added incrementally to our enjoyment of our exploration of Yorktown, which is a destination overshadowed by Williamsburg and Jamestown,... More

This B&B is beautifully maintained, managed, and hosted. The home has an authentic "colonial" feel even though it is less 100yrs old because it was designed and built by members of the Colonial Williamsburg Restoration team. It is in the perfect location for accessing Colonial Williamsburg/Jamestown and the town of Yorktown as well as the battlefield park. The windows of... More
