This was our first stay at this particular property of the Williamsburg Inn. We have stayed at the Houses and Inn on several occasions and always longed to bring our four legged kids each and every visit. An obscure post tipped me off that this WI property does indeed, allow dogs.
In all of the years visiting I had never noticed this hotel building off of the pathway just to the left of the parking lot at the end of the wing of the Inn directly across from the tennis courts. It is a more modern looking structure, located on a quiet pathway off the golfing greens with a lovely pond and lots of egrets, turtles and croaking frogs.
Our unit was located on the bottom level with a patio that opened to the pond and allowed us to walk in and out with the 'kids'. There are strict rules for pets and the price is rather steep at $50 per animal per night, but we appreciate being able to traveling with our dogs, and despite the fees, are cheaper than pet hotels. However, we appreciate and reward hotels that permit dogs, and are glad to know the WI has this option for the future.
The room was large and included a sitting area with full size sofa, coffee table and chair and dining table and chairs. We had the King bedroom. Bath and bed were comfortable and nicely outfitted. The rooms included a large safe; small refrigerator and a coffee maker with the pods.
Housekeeping was able to bring extras of all amenities we requested and we ordered room service which was prompt. There is a large lounge room in one of the two buildings that has office related services and coffee all day.
The one point I would make is there is no elevator in this building. It made carrying our usual car load of dog and people stuff a bit of a hassle, however, the porters carried it to and from our auto so was not a big deal. I inform so that anyone that may require wheel chair access should inform the hotel when making reservations.
The hotel had access to all of the Inn's amenities. We traveled over Memorial Day weekend. The crowd was sparse and there were multiple weddings in the Regency Room. We ate in the lovely bar for dinner and had room service on occasion. We spent our time hanging out at the 'quiet' pool. The rest of the time, I spent at the fabulous spa! I highly recommend the scrub and massage treatment! It's worth the trip alone!
The staff at the Inn, as always, were attentive punctual. I would recommend to folks needing to manage a larger brood, or for couples that want to disappear into the woods.
