Host Bill is a most welcoming fellow. He made us feel right at home from the moment that we arrived at the Inn. We had the George Washington Suite, the largest of his three rooms. Indeed, the room was large and comfortably furnished. The bed, with a beautiful antique headboard, was very comfortable. All the linens and towels were fresh... More

Our second time at this B&B and it was excellent. Our family has stayed here about 10 times. Bill the Innkeeper is quite the historian. Breakfast is awesome, the view is even better. They have a great flower garden and lots of birds including cardinals, humming birds and bluejays. The location is short walking distance to the Yorktown Riverwalk area... More

It's a pleasure for me to host these guests, and I'm flattered that members of this family have returned several times. It makes me search for new food items to prepare! And I've become friends with these folks as well as with most of my great guests! More

My wife and I stayed for three nights at the York River Inn Bed and Breakfast. Bill was an excellent host, who provided us with plenty of information, suggestions, stories, and history. He also prepared three fantastic breakfasts and expanded our palates with items like Scotch eggs, baked pineapple, among other rich delights. In the room, the bed was comfortable,... More

My wife and I were lucky to get a reservation at the York River Inn B&B for two over the July 4th holiday. I had tickets to Busch Gardens in Williamsburg as well. We picked the Inn for the great reviews (which in retrospect are justified). When making the reservation Bill suggested the Riverwalk Restaurant for our special occasion and... More

The owner Bill is extremely charming and helpful and knows everything about the Historic Triangle (Yorktown, Jamestown and Colonial Williamsburg). He can help you plan your time most efficiently.

My husband and I stayed 6 days at the inn to visit family and enjoy several Virginia Garden Week tours. Once again, we thoroughly appreciated the host, Bill's, hospitality. His knowledge of the history of the area as related in tales told at his scrumptious breakfasts is unequaled. Breakfast was always a banquet - crabcakes, waffles, exotic fruit dishes, Scotch...

My husband and I visited the bed and breakfast the two night following our wedding. Bill (the innkeeper) was so accommodating. We knew we would arrive late at night and he assured us it wasn't a problem. We stayed in the President's suite. It had a private balcony with a fantastic view and was very homey. The inn is full...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The York River Inn Bed & Breakfast is situated on a high bluff overlooking the York River in a colonial-style building. It is the only waterfront bed and breakfast in the Yorktown and Colonial Williamsburg area. The York River Inn Bed & Breakfast is the ideal location for a relaxing visit in historic Yorktown, Virginia. The York River Inn B & B is also a delightful place to enjoy the historic areas of Yorktown and Williamsburg. Gracious settings, generous amenities, and knowledgeable host create a memorable experience rather than just a night away from home. All three guestrooms are filled with standard amenities enhanced by many charming and useful additions--the innkeeper's extensive travel and hospitality career have contributed to his skill at providing the finest accommodations possible. The common area includes a sofa and comfortable chairs, where you can browse through piles of current magazines. The refrigerator is fully stocked for guests. The innkeeper has a vast selection of Virginia books, maps and extensive materials on travel from all over the US and the world. You are welcome to enjoy the shared deck with deck chairs, as well as the cookies and treats always set out on the dining room table. A gourmet breakfast served in the elegant antiques-filled dining area overlooking the river is a highlight of the experience provided at the York River Inn. The Inn is only a short distance from the colonial area and other attractions of Yorktown and is only 15 minutes from Colonial Williamsburg by the way of the scenic Colonial Parkway. The local area is filled with historic, cultural, and entertainment activities without the stress of a busy crowded town. In Yorktown itself are two major historical attractions celebrating the winning of American independence October 19,1781 when George Washington accepted the surrender of the British under Lord Cornwallis, an event commemorated by the 1881 victory monument just down river from the York River Inn. ... more   less
