My wife and I and 3 other couples reserved the Colonial Capital Bed and Breakfast for the last weekend before Christmas 2009, and it was wonderful. We had the entire inn to ourselves, which added to the enjoyment. (There is a room on the third floor, but it was rented for the year to two co-eds from the College of William and Mary and, therefore was inaccessible). Each room has its own style and all were nicely furnished and decorated. The room that my wife and I had was the smallest of the four but was still of sufficient size and comfort. Although our room faced Richmond Street, it was still quiet and we slept undisturbed by passing traffic. The first floor parlor is spacious and has comfortable sofas and chairs that we put to good use each evening sharing wine and watching NFL football.
George was a gracious host and made terrific breakfasts each morning using his southern Mississippi culinary skills and recipes. Breakfast was served at a well-appointed table in the dining room that easily accommodated our entire party.
The inn’s location could not have been better. It is across the street from the College of William and Mary and only a short walk from Merchant’s Square and the lower terminus of Duke of Gloucester Street. It is an easy walk from the inn to the historic sites in Colonial Williamsburg. There is a Colonial Williamsburg ticket office in Merchant’s Square, and that eliminates the need to drive to the Visitor’s Center and rely on bus transportation to and from the historic sites.
All said, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would be delighted to return.
