“Makes Williamsburg more charming”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

Our stay at the Williamburg Sampler B&B was more than we expected. After ringing the doorbell, Ike answered very quickly and made was feel right at home.He showed us all the rooms to enjoy and then took us upstairs to our quarters for the night--The Lord Nelson Room. SInce there is so much to see and do in Williamsburg, we hardly has enough time to enjoy all the comforts of A Williamsburg Sampler. What a joy to talk with Ike--his interesting life, the history of the B&B, his wife/family and Williamsburg. The breakfasts were a perfect start to the day along with Ike's company and others staying at the B&B. It is an easy walk to Colonial Williamsburg so leaving the car behind was another pleasure. Our stay at A Williamsburg Sampler made Williamsburg even more charming.

My husband and I drove about 900 miles from our home in central Florida to the Williamsburg Sampler in Williamsburg, Virginia for a family Bed and Breakfast stay that extended from Sunday evening, September 22nd through Wednesday morning, September 25th. The Williamsburg Sampler is a wonderful place to stay in Williamsburg, Virginia! Our host and his family have been operating this lovely
B and B for 25 years now and this experience is reflected in the wonderful and welcoming atmosphere of the house and the delicious breakfasts we enjoyed. Our extended family has stayed in many different hotels and Bed and Breakfast sites on our gatherings from Ohio, Michigan, Tennessee, and Florida over the years. We are so glad we chose The Williamsburg Sampler for this trip and recommend it to others who are traveling to Williamsburg, Virginia in the future.

Room Tip: Each room is a good room. Our family occupied 3 of the 4 Guest Rooms on the second floor of the hous...

Our group consisted of seven adult family members from four different states. My sister-in-law found the Williamsburg Sampler on the Internet and we all loved it. Ike was very kind and helpful and Lysette made wonderful breakfasts for us. We were thrilled to find it so clean and comfortable. We liked Ike so much we took him out to dinner our last night there! We were treated like family. The assorted drinks and snacks were very nice.

A big thank you from the Eshelman Family. We rate you a #5

We stayed at the Williamsburg Sampler because we wanted somewhere close to the restored area and this was supposed to be just that. It was a bit farther than we had hoped, but still lovely. We were welcomed by Ike, the inn keeper and his daughter Ike immediately gave us a tour of his lovely home. We did forgo a trip to the game room in the basement because I knew we would not be using it. The room we had was just lovely and furnished with antiques as is the rest of the home. The next time I will know to secure a suite because for two people with a large dog, the single room was just a bit cramped and the suites were much more spacious. We were made to feel at home although we did not use any of the sitting rooms, but only because by the time we returned each evening all, we wanted a shower and a nice bed to watch tv from. The . rooms and bathrooms were extremely clean. Breakfast each morning was prepared by Lizeth, and was absolutely delicious. It was served buffet style (more home style) and was hot and plentiful. Assorted coffees, tea, hot water, sodas, and cocoa are available 24 hours a day. We will definitely consider staying here on our return to Williamsburg.

Room Tip: If there are two of you with a dog choose a suite. More spacious!

I was looking for someting different from a hotel and so my husband and I booked an anniversay get-a-way at the Williamsburg Sampler. We stayed in the King Williams suite whch had a large kig size bed and the sitting room was comfortable with a safe and 2 arm charis along with a wet bar. Both the suite and home are lovely and full of antiques. Our host graciously welcomed us and gave us a tour of his beautiful home. The breakfast each morning was wonderful and filling. We will definately consider staying here again on future trips to Williamsburg.

Our daughter gave us a BedandBreakfast.com certificate for Christmas so we decided to go to Williamsburg, Va. We chose the Williamsburg Sampler B&B. The house was beautifully decorated and so clean and immaculate. The amenities were really nice. We had the king William suite which had a very comfortable King size bed, a walk in closet, small living room TV's, and an outside balcony deck. Ike who is the owner was so nice and we had some very pleasant conversations. Breakfast was amazing and plentiful so much so that we skipped lunch each day. Thanks to Lysette who prepared something different each morning. She also did a wonderful job of keeping our room, bathroom and living are nice and clean. I would highly recommend the Williamsburg Sampler to anyone visiting the area. I was so much nicer than the traditional stay in a hotel.

Room Tip: There is no swimming pool I could not figure out how to take that rating off. There is a pool table...

My husband and I booked the Williamsburg Sampler for our anniversary getaway. We were pleasantly surprised at how beautiful it was(just like the pictures). We were immediately greeted by Ike, (the inn keeper) the moment we arrived. He gave us a tour of the entire home and then showed us to our accommodations. The room was beautifully decorated and had plenty of room for two. Each morning the moment you opened your door the aroma of delicious food filled the air. Breakfast was delicious. There was plenty of items to choose from with a different spread each morning. The other guests were extremely friendly and each morning we started our day with great conversations and good food. Everything was absolutely wonderful. We will definitely be returning. Thank you Ike for welcoming us we loved our visit!!
