We spent the weekend in Yorktown to celebrate our son's graduation from Coast Guard A-School which is just down the street from the Hornsby House Inn. The owners, brothers David and Philip Bowditch, made us feel very welcome, providing us with historical information about the area and sharing stories of their childhood home. The breakfasts were bountiful with bacon, eggs,... More

We celebrated our 50th anniversary in these pleasant surroundings. The Bowditch Brothers are friendly, welcoming and accommodating in every way. They've done a great job of restoring their boyhood home to its former grandeur and clearly enjoy sharing it with their guests. The Yorktown historical setting adds to the flavor and gives significance to the venue. The cuisine was excellent,... More

What a wonderful bread and breakfast inn! My mother and I stayed here for 3 nights, and we were not disappointed. We felt like we were at home, and looked forward to our early morning and late evenings on the porch, listening to the birds and watching the fireflies. The breakfast was delicious and the location is excellent. The inn... More

My wife and I are "locals" (we live in nearby Williamsburg) and decided to celebrate our 25th Anniversary at the Hornsby House Inn in Yorktown. We were not disappointed. In fact, the house and the hosts far exceeded our expectations. The house was built in the 1930s and was the childhood home of the hosts, David and Phillip. It has... More

We spent 2 nights at Hornsby House Inn and it was the highlight of our trip. David & Philip were just the best hosts. They alternated making breakfast and it was fantastic both mornings. They were both very helpful and knowledgeable regarding the sights of Yorktown and nearby Williamsburg. We wished we could have stayed more days.

We concur with the many positive reviews of the Hornsby House Inn. While making the reservation, we opted for the "discounted" option of allowing the proprietors, David and Phillip, to select our room upon check-in, allowing other guests to choose their specific rooms at a slightly higher price. We were not disappointed. We were given the Chesapeake Room which, while... More

The Hornsby House Inn is located right off the battlefield and at the entrance to historic Yorktown. You can walk to the river front and to everywhere you'd like to go in Yorktown. It is very near Williamsburg (about a ten minute's drive) and also near Jamestown (about ten more minutes). David and Phillip, two brothers who own and operate... More

This place is magical! My husband and I have stayed here multiple times and plan on returning every anniversary. The staff is simply wonderful and strives to make sure that all of the guests are satisfied with their stay. The accommodations are luxurious. The complimentary wine and cheese hour is often the highlight of our stay there. The breakfast is... More
