I started timeshare ownership at Powhatan around 1994 and I have seen the good, bad, and ugly sides of this resort. I came to Powhatan Plantation for a few weeks in August/September of 2016. It was a surprisingly fantastic experience! The unit I had was great. I was in an accommodated unit due to the mobility issues of my mother.... More

We were in a first floor 1 bedroom apartment with everything we needed except the food. It had a full kitchen. From what I understand, the 2nd floor apartments have a condensed kitchen. It is quite stunning. We were located near everything. The grounds are beautiful and we were able to walk to about everything we wanted to do. We... More

Traveled to Williamsburg, Va from New York City for a sibling weekend get together. After a busy traffic adventure we arrived at the resort. Upon entering the gates this resort and layout was just beautiful from the reception, our suite, to checkout was flawlessly presented. Next time in area it's the Powhatan for this family

We came for a week in September 2016 on a timeshare swap. Powhatan Resort is a Diamond Resort which, we learned during a briefing, specializes in buying distressed properties and re-doing them.

This property is beautiful. The accommodations are excellent. Customer service was excellent. It is close to Jamestown with an easy drive to all area sights and locations to include the Newport News Intl Airport. This was a very nice timeshare with combo washer/dryer unit, gas fireplace, and nice deck area.
