Don't miss this B & B if you want the extra convenience of a kitchenette---one room even has a full kitchen! The gardens on the grounds are magnificent, with areas to sit and relax while you enjoy the beauty of the property. Yorktown is a great place to visit, and very close to Williamsburg, which is more expensive and much more congested. Tom is a very kind innkeeper and he genuinely cares about the well-being of his guests. Yorktown has a lovely shopping district on the river, a rich history, lovely homes and gardens, and a beach. We truly enjoyed our visit and highly recommend this bed and breakfast.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Marl Inn is a private home Bed and Breakfast, built in 1978 with a colonial architectural style. The Inn opened for business in 1996 and was restored in 2001. In September 2009, the Inn was purchased by Tom and Poppet Nelson. Tom is the fourth great-grandson of Thomas Nelson, Jr., Signer of the Declaration of Independence, Revolutionary War Governor after Thomas Jefferson and commander of the Virginia Militia during the siege of Yorktown. The Inn is named for hard clay called "Marl". Used as a building material by early colonists in Yorktown, it is filled with crustaceans found on the banks of the Chesapeake Bay. Constructed in 1978, enlarged in 1996 and again in 1999, for several years. Marl Inn was the last house built in the historic district of Yorktown. This white picket fenced Bed and Breakfast is situated on a half acre lot, adjacent to the town's original 1691 surveyed lots. Yorktown is a National Landmark where American and French forces won the last battle of the American Revolution. Marl Inn is a half block from the restored Main Street village of Yorktown and two (2) blocks from Yorktown's Riverwalk Landing along the York River. We are within walking distance of fine restaurants, antique shops, museums and the beach. Bring your bicycles to tour the village, battlegrounds and museums. Take a short walk to the Colonial National Historical Park (CNHP) Visitor Center, at the location of the last major battle of the American Revolutionary War. Full breakfast is only for guests and not the general public. ... more less
