“Lovely Bed & Breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2011

My adult daughter and I stayed at the Aldrich House last weekend and had a lovely stay. The owners were very friendly. The room we had was very comfortable - mattresses wonderful (we had a room with two king size beds) and very peaceful. Breakfast was excellant with an egg dish, meat as well as pancakes (blueberry) one morning and excellant french toast the next. Very close to Colonial Williamsburg. I will plan on staying there again.

What a wonderful stay we had at the Aldrich House Bed & Breakfast! From the moment we arrived we felt comfortable in this beautiful and very clean home. Tom and Sue are great and treat you like family friends. They had decorated their home beautifully for the Christmas holidays and it is within a short walking distance from Colonial Williamsburg. We have fond memories of sitting in front of the fire, with Christmas music in the background and the sweet scent of goodies being baked in the kitchen. Our stay was wonderful and we would recommend the Aldrich House whenever you visit Williamsburg!

All round wonderful! Tom and Sue were very friendly and helpful. Breakfasts were huge and very tasty indeed. The Patton Room was very comfortable. Very pleasant and central location to visit historic area of Williamsburg. Would advise anyone visiting Williamsburg to stay at the Aldrich House!

My husband and I felt at home here, and found the room to be very cozy and decorated exactly how you would like to see a Williamsburg B&B. The breakfasts were great. Sue made something different for us every day. You will fall in love with K.C. It was great being within walking distance of Duke of Gloucester. I couldn't have asked for a better place to stay in my favorite city for my 30th birthday trip. Thank you Sue and Tom!

We spent the weekend at the Aldrich House Bed and Breakfast and loved everything about it, especially their little cat KC. What a dear! The house is beautiful. Breakfasts were wonderful and the family was very helpful, giving information and tips on the area, sharing their love for the area. We would definitely recommend it to family and friends.

While both our moms were visiting near their birthdays, my husband and I decided to surprise them with a trip to Williamsburg. As we searched B&Bs in the Williamsburg area, we finally settled upon Aldrich House. We based our decision on several factors: walking distance to Colonial Williamsburg, accommodation for the 4 of us in one room, and reasonable price. It was the least expensive B&B we researched, and that was our only concern (i.e., “you get what you pay for”). Well, I am here to testify that you get a whole lot more than what you pay for!

Aldrich House is lovely and charming…there is nothing pretentious or overly embellished about it… it is like visiting your favorite aunt and uncle out in the country. When we arrived, Sue and Tom were not able to greet us, but they left us a note along with a key to the house. We walked in, and both our moms were delighted. We were all amazed when we walked into our huge room (the Anderson Room), which exceeded our expectations. It was tastefully and lovingly decorated, and it was all very clean and tidy.

On both mornings, we walked downstairs and were treated to a simple, delicious breakfast (i.e., scrambled eggs, sausage, fruit salad and French toast). Combined with orange juice and coffee, it was a perfect way to start our day. Sue and Tom are down-to-earth, friendly, and hospitable. They were helpful with directions and dinner suggestions; at breakfast, they provided pleasant conversation and interesting anecdotes about their experiences at Aldrich House. After breakfast, it was only a 5-10 minute walk to Colonial Williamsburg.

My husband and I had a lovely time and would return in a heartbeat to Aldrich House. Our mothers, on the other hand, found their visit to Williamsburg to be one of the most memorable trips of their lives. Thank you, Sue and Tom, for helping create that memory for us.

Nice little B&B just a 5 minute walk from Colonial Williamsburg, and while I'd stay there again, I'd bring sleeping pills. The rooms were extremely bright at night from the street lights and the blinds didn't do much. At midnight, with the lights off, it was bright enough to read a book comfortably. We ended up hanging towels over the windows.

The indoor/outdoor 3 legged cat was a suprise, especially when it cried all night outside our door. Both mornings, the other couples complained about the cat noise as well. Its not just your usual meow, this can has a "special" sound that remind me of stepping on a bassonist. Tylenol PM is a must for sleeping here. Cute little cat, but loud.

Floors squeak very loudly, too. If you plan to stay out late, everyone will hear you come in... or you'll hear them if you want to sleep before they're home.

You are right. The cat will cry out sometimes. She's almost 20 years old now and has a bad night occasionally. We have also changed the blinds to a larger width. They look nicer and hopefully, turned the right way, will block the light better from the street light.
