My sister and I took our 93 year old mother here for an overnight. We wanted to find the episcopal church in Saluda, Va where her ancestors arrived in 1600's. The Inn was just perfect for us - we took the Monument Grande Suite which had a king sized bed and two twins, a fireplace, nice bathroom and plenty of... More

One of the best B&B visits ever! David is a charming and informative host, the rooms are comfy and spacious and the breakfast was delicious. If I'm ever in Yorktown again I will definitely stay here. The view from the front porch is gorgeous and the whole vibe is like staying in a friend's home. Really great! Be sure to... More

We recently stayed for two nights as a quick get away. The home was beautiful, the room comfortable and the hospitality outstanding. The family was warm and welcoming and prepared a delicious breakfast each day. We would definitely come back!

We are two adults, two tweens, and stayed in the Magnolia Room and the Hornsby Room (forgot which is which, but the adults had the king bed and the kids had a queen and a double) The rooms are adjacent to each other and each has their own separate bathroom. Excellent! Not cramped at all; big rooms. Great night sleep.... More

Lovely B and B in great location close to river and shops. Innkeepers very gracious and accommodating. Already made reservations to go back for Labor Day weekend and again on my daughter's graduation. Beautiful grounds. Highly recommend. Well worth the drive to Williamsburg.

My father and I stayed here when on a historical tour of the area. It is an outstanding location, and a very well run B&B with a wonderful, multi-generation, family story behind it. The breakfast was bountiful and delicious, the rooms comfortable and private, and the owners and staff were attentive, personable and entertaining! We had a great time and... More

We stayed during a very cold snap weather wise and were so glad we had chosen Hornsby House. It is an exceptionally beautiful home, tastefully decorated and styled. Our room, the Monument room was perfect with a view of the monument obviously, and an open log fire which was a real bonus. Kirsten looked after us really well and we... More

I thoroughly enjoyed the weekend stay. Co-owner David Bowditch was indeed a gracious host, and made everyone feel comfortable and welcomed. I felt like I was a part of the family! I look forward to coming back!

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
