“A Delightful Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2012

At first we were disappointed to be staying at the Williamsburg Sampler because we had booked with their sister Bed and Breakfast and were moved at short notice. However, we really enjoyed our stay at the Sampler.

The house and its owner have character. The rooms are very comfortable and spacious. The location is perfect. For us the only downside was the coffee machine commented on so positively by other reviewers. It looks out of place in a house full of antiques and the decaf coffee and tea were truly disgusting. Anyway that will not stop us wanting to come back to Williamsburg and the sampler.

This B and B is fantastic. It is beautiful, clean, roomy and run by a very nice gentleman. The food was excellent as well as other treats and drinks available. Breakfasts were fun with the other guests and sometimes the owner. Also, the B and B is located close to Colonial Williamsburg as well as William and Mary College

Room Tip: Some rooms are suites and some are single. There are only four rooms in the Inn, so you might inqui...

Upon entering the Williamsburg Sampler B&B we felt right at home only better! The Inn is beautifully decorated from top to bottom with antiques appropriate to the location. Our room was spacious, clean and beautiful. The bed was so comfortable and the bath was sparkling clean and large. Our breakfast each day was well prepared and delicious. We have been to Williamsburg several times but enjoyed visiting with Ike, the Innkeeper and learning about all the new things Williamsburg has to offer.

We will return hopefully in the near future.

Our second stay at this B & B. House is nicely done with many interemting items of furnishing. Bed was very comfortable. TV in room was appreciated. Very friendly company at breakfast. Both Ike and Lisbeth very warm and affiable. Great coffee machine. Will return.

Ike is a wonderfully warm and gracious host. Don't miss breakfast at 8:30 -- it's your chance to spend a pleasant meal with other travelers, and sets a relaxing, familial tone to your stay. Housekeeper Lisbeth is also warm and gracious (and prepares an outstanding breakfast!) The house is filled with antiques and has several rooms to retreat into and read, listen to music, or socialize. From a visitor perspective, staying here added a social dimension to our trip that we did not expect but made the trip so much more memorable. I highly recommend this B&B.

We stayed two nights at the Sampler while visiting Colonial Williamsburg with another couple. Ike and his housekeeper were excellent hosts, very friendly, great conversation. Breakfasts were absolutely delicious, with many very well-prepared options, such as freshly-baked cranberry muffins. We had the King William suite with the sitting room and the balcony we shared with our friends' suite, which was a great place to share a bottle of wine after the day's activities. The King William was beautifully decorated, very clean and well-maintained. It's a very good value. We will stay here again the next time we are in the area.

Room Tip: The suites are a very good value.

My wife & I stayed for 3 nights. Charming B&B. Ike was a gracious & friendly host, & an eclectic collector of various art forms. Great breakfasts & terrific coffee machine. Good value. The one evening when we wanted to watch TV we went down to the "Pool Room" & watched our shows on the big screen TV (not HD). Very clean. The bathroom could have used more towel racks for both bath & hand towels, & why is it hotels & B&Bs don't put two suitcase stands in every room? Our last night there, we could hears owls hooting nearby (irrelevant, I suppose, but interesting). We were quite prepared to reuse our towels, but they were replaced anyway.
