Hornsby House is simply a wonderful 1930s B&B family owned & run B&B located in Yorktown with an easy walk to the town's restaurants & water front. The house is full of family pictures, furniture and other family related personal items. During our stay, we were looked after by Phil Hornsby (grandson of the original owner) and by Jeanette the...

We picked this spot based on the pictures and excellent reviews and they were spot on! David was thorough in his communication regarding reservations, where to park, suggestions on where to sight see, offered to make dinner reservations..... We really felt at home. Jean Ette greeted us and made us feel so welcome, chatting a bit and extending warm southern... More

We chose to stay at the Hornsby House Inn because it looked attractive and is conveniently situated for short drives to all the historical sites nearby. Upon our arrival we knew we had made the right choice. The house is as charming as we had hoped and David and Philip warmly greeted us with wine and cheese and crackers on... More

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.

We booked Hornsby House based on previous reviews and were not disappointed. We stayed in the Magnolia Room which was spacious and comfortable. 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

What a perfect weekend visit to historic Yorktown... and The Hornsby House Inn made it all the more enjoyable. The hosts Phil and Sarah were over-the-top accommodating to our every want and need. 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
