The Hornsby House is an incredible experience. We felt as if we were welcomed into to the home as if we were old friends. David and Phil went out of their way to make sure we felt comfortable and cared for. Drinks in the evening, and an incredible breakfast in the morning. Sitting at the family table as we learned...

The Hornsby House is a beautiful family home located right across the street from the Yorktown monument and just a short walk to the waterfront restaurants. We had a fabulous stay here....comfortable bed, fireplace in the room and a delicious breakfast. David Bowditch and his brother have done an outstanding job with their B & B.

We stayed at the Hornsby House Inn in Yorktown, VA the day before Thanksgiving and had the best stay ever at a bed and breakfast. The owners ( David and Phil ) came to the 5 pm wine and cheese tasting and provided us with the history of the house and the family members who lived there. David was at... More

Absolutely a wonderful B&B. Amazing staff and owners. Lots of tales about Yorktown and history and family connections. They go to maximum to make certain that you are comfortable, connected with other guests and provide a wealth of information on Williamsburg, Yorktown, Gloucester, etc. Our room was awesome. Large sitting area, walk-out balcony overlooking the York, electronic door lock. Fireplace... More

Great time at the Inn. Our rooms were clean and comfortable. Our host, David Bowditch made us feel family returning for a visit. The breakfast each morning was delicious and the conversations informative. Afternoon wine and cheese was a nice relaxing way to end the afternoon before going out for dinner. Added entertainment this past Wednesday evening, the local Drum... More

Can't say enough about our stay and the staff. They were accommodating in every way possible and provided valuable information, tickets, and insight about the area and its history. The family that owns this house has a history of their own which is also interesting and fun. The rooms are clean, well-kept, and the staff welcomes input. House is large... More

We found this place by chance and were only able to stay one night but I would recommend the Hornsby Inn as your base for 2-3 nights when visiting the Historic Triangle. You are only a short drive from both Jamestown and Williamsburg and have a wonderful, peaceful place to come back to each night with lovely views over the... More

Our rooms were on the third floor and were huge suites with private bath. Furnishings are antiques collected by the family. Wonderful family history is on display and our host Phil was very... More

David and Phil, owners of the Hornsby Inn, provided us with wonderful hospitality. We had a great anniversary week-end. We highly recommend the Hornsby Inn to stay while enjoying historical Yorktown Virginia.
