We booked this place rather than a hotel and it's just like going to a rather rich grandparent's place in the sense of the antiques and structure of the house. It still seems like an old family home but with a few modern amenities like separate bathrooms for each guest room, self controlled AC units in each room. they had... More

Our 3 night stay was both very comfortable and enjoyable. The house / home is delightful with tremendous character and well appointed guest rooms. We enjoyed the breakfasts and wine & cheese along with the social time with other guests. Definitely a return destination for future trips to the Historic Triangle of Virginia.

Dave, the owner, is very knowledgeable about the area, having grown up in the house which was apparently extensively renovated several years ago. It is conveniently located directly across the street from the Victory Monument and is... More

We had stayed there one other time. It's hard to describe all the wonderful things about this Inn but let me begin with the owners and brothers, Dave and... More

I have spent about 2 weeks within the last 2 years at the Hornsby House and this is the best place I have travelled to and stayed in the United States. The breakfast is absolutely fabulous, I couldn't make it better myself and the House itself is so charming and beautiful inside and out! To top off your stay, Dave... More

Beautiful Sunday breakfast served with all of the other guests made it feel like a special event and not just an average stay. Proximity to the Coast... More

Beautiful older home right in the middle of the historic village of York Town. Charming hosts with stories of the area and suggestions. Breakfast was superb. Highly recommend. We stayed in the River Room, overlooking street and York Town memorial.
