We enjoyed a wonderful stay in a recently refurbished cottage near the front of the Williamsburg Inn. The location near the tavern bus stop couldn't be beat. The bed was extremely comfortable, and the furnishings in the room were like stepping back into the 1700s, but with modern amenities. Everything was spotlessly clean! Colonial detials, right down to the Christmas wreaths on the doors. This was our first stay with historic lodging, and we will absolutely do it again! Loved it!

Hotel's Favorite
We stayed in a Colonial Home on the property and loved every minute of our visit. We ate at the Taverns and loved the food and atmosphere. We visited the lumber yard, the Capital with a very realistic Marquee de Lafayette on horse outside the Capital. Saw various tradesmen and shop keepers. Don’t miss the Haunted Tour.

Thank you for the wonderful review. I appreciate you taking the time to let us all know just how much you enjoyed your stay. Our rooms in the Colonial Historic Area are a perfect place to relax and enjoy the Colonial Williamsburg. When booking for the next trip we do have some rooms that have queen beds and if bring the family we do have some standalone houses that may be available! We do value your continued support and we are looking forward to welcoming you back for a next visit! Thank you for again choosing The Colonial Houses of Colonial Williamsburg!

The house is located very conveniently within the Historic District so one can either walk or take the shuttle bus to all the ceremonies, festivities and programs and parking is never an issue. It's fun to stay in a colonial house; but, it has all the modern amenities inside, including a working fireplace which we definitely enjoyed during our visit over Grand Illumination weekend; yet, it's quaint and charming too.

My wife and I stayed at the Brick House Tavern which has 16 relatively inexpensive (compared to renting a stand-alone colonial house) guest rooms. Our room was small but very comfortable. We enjoyed staying in the center of Colonial Williamsburg allowing us to return to the room several times a day to drop off items or rest a bit. The room service breakfast delivered from the Williamsburg Inn was very convenient.

Stay at Market St Tavern good experience. Location cannot be beat to experience colonial Williamsburg. Check in staff cannot be beat. Best ever experienced in courtesy, friendliness, knowledge, and genuine desire to help with any issues.
