I read the Trip Advisor reviews and it was with some trepidation that I made a reservation. We reserved a 1 bedroom condo @ $59/night. Check in was a breeze. Since this is a timeshare resort we were asked if we wanted to participate in a 90 minute overview of the resort. If you choose to do this, they offer some nice SWAG (gift card and free weekend stay) but since we aren't in the market for a timeshare we declined. They were very gracious about it.
We drove to our unit and were WOWED when we entered! It was beautiful. The kitchen was well appointed with granite counters, new appliances, and all of the necessities needed should you decide to cook for yourself. The dining room and living room were equally as nice! There is a large flat panel tv above a fireplace. The bedroom had a king bed with lovely linens. The bathroom also had granite countertops and was as clean as could be. Additionally, we had our own private hot tub which is accessible through the living room and bedroom. In a word, our weekend was outstanding!
The grounds are also very lovely. There is a manor house (currently undergoing some restoration) and a small, quaint restaraunt called "The Kitchen". While we didn't eat there, there are lots of excellent reviews for it.......reservations are recommended.
I highly recommend this resort. We will definitely stay here again should we return to Williamsburg. This was 10000 times better than a hotel room!
