I stayed two nights and enjoyed it immensely. The room was comfortable and quiet and there is a big room downstairs which is great for reading. Parking is more than adequate and the place is within easy walking distance of everything in Yorktown. Bill, the host, is a gold mine of information about all things Yorktown and Virginia. Breakfasts were... More

This a great B&B. We stayed in the President's suite and it had everything you could ask for and was nicely decorated without going over board. A very comfortable room and the balcony was a plus not to mention a great view of the river. Bill is a great host and an excellent cook. What a breakfast. You have plenty... More

Stayed at the York River B and B for the third time , best time ever. What a great weekend in Yorktown, cant say enough about great things about our stay. Always great food, great room, and Bill is always very so fun to talk to, and has great stories. We love Yorktown and would not stay any where else.

We stayed only one night and immediately regretted it wasn't for longer. We had the Washington Suite which was very spacious and beautifully furnished. The bed was so comfortable and the bed linen was to die for. Bill, the innkeeper, was a fountain of knowledge and there wasn't much he didn't know about Yorktown and the surrounding areas and it's...

Me and my wife stayed here for two nights. And would absolutely go back. Its got the best prices, and the best view in Yorktown; I think. And just as great is the host Bill, he is very nice, always ready to help and can likely answer any historical question you have [ at least on VA]. And of course... More

Bill was a most pleasant host and very accommodating to our schedule. My husband and I were visiting our son and family in Hampton. We found Yorktown a short drive, enjoyed the wonderful breakfasts, and were even able to see some of the historical sights not opened to us in the past including some of the houses on the battlefield....

Absolutely top drawer! If you are in the Yorktown area, stay here. Bill has three guest rooms. The Washington room is on the third floor. It has a couch that pulls out to a bed and a king size bed. There is an easy chair and a rocker. the carpets are so soft it is a pleasure to walk barefoot.... More

We enjoyed our stay at York River Inn B&B. Our host, Bill was very knowledgeable concerning anything that had to do with Virginia.. You can tell he loves the state he lives in and is from. His B&B has lots of memorabilia on the area and Virginia in general. He was a gracious host with great suggestions as to where... More

Our first stay at a bed and breakfast and it was certainly an enjoyable one! Very laid back atmosphere. The view of the river was breathtaking. Hoping to stay in a room with that view next time. Breakfast was...well words won't do it justice...I'm still telling everyone about it. Learned more about the town and the history in 2 mornings... More

We stayed 3 nights and Bill (owner) was a wonderful host. His breakfast each morning was different and wonderful. A great cook. Bill gave us a history lesson of Yorktown, Jamestown and Williamsburg. He is full of knowledge. We had the King room with lots of room. Would stay there again. Great job Bill. Craig
