Very poor upkeep inside house very run down, tub upstairs floor paint / surface is peeling, flooring is neglected, locks do not work, closet door hits floor and does not open. Do not recommend staying at this location. Service was good from the staff.
WOW! If you have a chance to stay in a colonial house, do it. These are amazing homes, right there in Colonial Williamsburg, with easy parking and easy access to all things Colonial Williamsburg. You'll pay more for the experience vs the standard hotels, but staying here just made Williamsburg as a whole a richer, more meaningful escape for our family. It was immersive, and immaculately clean (so very clean- impressive when you consider the age of the homes). The bedding was comfortable, the rooms were all unique, the furniture used was appropriate. It was just so wonderful to stay in the houses. My kids (12, 17) were so excited to stay here. We went on the ghost tour the second night of our 2 night stay, which may be a good thing as old houses like this, you never know!! Haha! When it got very hot touring around the area, it was so easy to pop in for some AC in our house. It just made the experience, truly. I can't wait to return and try another house. We've been home for a couple of weeks now, and my kids keep on talking about the "David Morton house". Seriously, seeing a 17 year old boy just having to take a video tour of this amazing house- and my 12 year old daughter say *we get to stay here? Really?*- it was very, very much a highlight of our entire vacation. Specific to the David Morton house- it was located so close to the Capitol Building of the Williamsburg area, right next to a tavern that had not yet reopened post-COVID. The home had a bedroom with a 4-poster queen on the bottom floor, a full bathroom that was very roomy, a parlor room with a pull out sofa sleeper, and a dramatic entryway with a staircase, and tons of charm. You walk through the front door and you KNOW you are in a different time era. Up the stairs you have a small bedroom with a trundle bed (and adorable dormer windows), a full bathroom with dormer windows and a very inventive shower situation (I'm 5'10" and it was totally fine!), and a roomy bedroom with another 4-poster queen (dormer windows everywhere!). A bonus we didn't know was there, and I'm not sure if it's available all the time, was a room in the basement with a dining room table. We did use this for eating a lunch one day, and it was so very nice. It had a "secret club" type of feel- you could imagine plotting a revolution from this basement room.…
Beautiful, quaint accommodations in Williamsburg. Everyone was polite, friendly and welcoming. The house we stayed in was convenient to everything and was spotless. Parking was convenient and our stay was exactly what we needed!
We stayed overnight on New Years eve at The Brickhouse Tavern of the Colonial Housing options. We could not have been more pleased with our room as it was full of charm and character. More than the accommodations, the employees of the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, Christy inn reservations, Abigail at check-in at The Williamsburg Inn, Vaughn nearby The Terrace Room and our server at dinner on New Years eve, Ferhat in The Terrace Room. Each and every one of these associates are skilled, but even more so, they are each personable and made our stay absolutely memorable.
If you really want an amazing time in Colonial Williamsburg, VA, plan ahead! Stay and eat on property! Book a place (Inn, Lodge, Griffin, Colonial House) on property to stay so you are mere steps from the exciting streets, shops, and tradesmen of colonial times. For eating - book (ahead of time) on the the amazing taverns or dinners at the Inn/Lodge - the food and experiences are out of this world. We do our best to visit 2-3 times a year
Colonial Williamsburg,Virginia makes an ideal place for grandparents and grandchildren to explore and learn together. We established a tradition many years ago that our grandchildren each make their first trip to the Williamsburg restoration when they turn 10 years old. We love to make the trip together at Christmas time, as there are fewer crowds, and the decorations are truly lovely and authentic. It makes the whole experience memorable and a true bonding experience for us all. The hospitality of all at the Restoration from the accommodation staff to the individual craft people and all artisans in the Restoration are second to none. We enjoy particularly the enthusiasm and dedication of all the artisans and interpreters in all the shops, crafts and occupations.
Just prior to Christmas, my partner and I visited Colonial Williamsburg and Jamestown with my son, his wife, and their two boys, ages nine and eleven. We stayed in one of the historic houses, the Nicholas Tyler Office, which was perfectly situated in the middle of the historic district and a delightful experience. My son and I had last visited in 2002, and this trip exceeded our expectations. We were so impressed with the friendliness and knowledge of all the staff, from the apprentices and journeymen in the craft shops, to the wait staff at the Williamsburg Inn and the historic taverns (I want to single out George at the Kings Arms for exceptional service), and the guides at the Governor's Palace, the Courthouse, and throughout Jamestown. We loved all the music, from the street musicians to the concert at the Palace. The glass harmonium concert at the museum was a real treat My partner and I stayed on a day after the others left, and loved our visit to the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Museum and the DeWitt Wallace Decorative Arts Museum - two exceptional small museums that should not be missed. And the week before Christmas, Williamsburg was not overly crowded. A perfect family trip that we hope to repeat a some point again the future.…
What a great place to stay. We found the Inn through a Google search. It was a last minute trip. Quick stop in Williamsburg before on to D.C. to visit family. The Inn is very Colonial full of beautiful vintage furniture. Each room is themed and well done. We stayed in the George Washington room. It was just like the pictures. The hosts were friendly, professional and very helpful. They made us feel welcomed from the moment we walked in the door. It it located directly across from William and Mary and a short walk to the Colonial section of Williamsburg. Might be best to drive. We would definitely stay again.
Although it is a little more expensive to stay in the colonial tavern room, it’s wonderful to be able to move around town without relying on your vehicle. And you can still pick up the shuttle bus at various stops to get to the museums or other parts of town if necessary. But the ability to wake up and walk out and greet everyone in the historic area is wonderful.
My children asked for a Colonial home stay for their Christmas gift. We are descendants of Patriots and they love history. The kids are being good sports about me booking them in the worst accommodations that I have ever booked in my life. It's one thing if you know you are booking budget accommodations but to book something that is suppose to be nice and to discover it is in poor/hazardous conditions is disappointing. Upon arriving we went to check in to get our tickets that come with the room around 11am, the woman working the check-in was very negative. She barked, "You do know that the room won't be ready until after 4pm". I simply wanted to let them know we were here and we wanted to use our tickets. She went on to tell me to "check my email". I did find a kind concierge on the other side that helped me because my email wasn't accessible at that time. I booked a small home called the Quarter that has a fireplace. (Booked in the summer for this Dec. stay.) We had visions of smore making. Sadly no one informed us that the fireplace is out of service at booking or any time before arriving. We even called service to have it lit after check in and 30 minutes later they called back treating me like I was stupid and said it is out of service. Who in their right mind would pay ~$$$ a night for a room that has out of service features? I would have never rented this home knowing the condition and the items out of service. The condition of the Quarter home is downright poor and hazardous (child got a splinter and is afraid to us outlets by the visual condition). I am posting this quickly to advise others so they can make other arranges if you booked this home. Chipped paint in multiple rooms which is a health concern with children. The tub drain was broken but they did repair it after a call. One of the kids got a splinter because it is extremely rustic flooring and a board came up on her upstairs. Glad I had tweezers. Trying not to be a "Karen" but you won't find service here that cares if you are disappointed. If you have physical issues, please know there is no bell service for these homes. You will be on your know managing luggage and there is no parking at the homes. This maybe a challenge for some. We like the charm of the home. Just wish it was as advertised with a working fireplace and that repairs were made. They added battery operated candles to some of the windows. And they are missing batteries. At least we are in a good location to walk to dinner.…
