This is the best place to stay. The house is full of history. The accommodations were first rate. Spotless and comfortable. We stayed in the Chesapeake room and it is perfect. We are in walking distance of the historic Yorktown and the beach. The local restaurants are charming. We have found our perfect vacation spot!

The Hornsby House Inn is a GEM ! The 'brother' Innkeepers, Dave & Phil are extremely gracious and friendly -- and they serve the most fabulously delicious and large full breakfast. A different menu each morning! They shared stories about growing up in Yorktown and living their childhood in this very home. Dave & Phil provided us with restaurant info;... More

This B&B was a terrific home away from home for us during our visit to this part of Virginia. The owners were extremely caring and responsive. They gave us great recommendations for dinner each night (we stayed a total of 3). The home is elegant and beautiful and very conveniently located a short walk from the beach and the restaurants....

Do yourself a favor and skip the basic beige hotel room and come to this truly elegant historical home. The inn keepers are the grandsons of the original owner and the entire house still has its original furnings,art and family photos. I stayed in the Hornsby Room on the third floor where I had a scrumptious king size bed,a huge... More

Wow! What an amazing place. We squeezed in this visit to Yorktown at the last minute on our tour of Virginia and the Carolinas and were SO pleased we did. Hornsby House is everything a B&B should be. It is a lovely old family house in a fantastic situation overlooking the Yorktown monument. Every step of the booking process was... More

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.
