An incredible lodging experience in this , one of Colonial Williamsburg's 88 Original Buildings. This Inn was built by my 4th Great Uncle in the 1760's. This was our first opportunity to stay here, and we flew from Texas to do so. Yes, that makes me predjudiced, but i will try to contain my euphoria for the truth about the room. We requested the room where a young T. Jefferson studied law while tutored by Geo. Wythe in the 1770's. It was amazing to look out of the windows Jefferson did--he had requested the front corner room looking out on the Square.(Same Uncle guarded the Magazine during the Revolution). Mr. J also rented at least one other room there during his stay. The Wmsburg Inn offered us superb room service, and the food was brought with a lovely pink rose ea time. we gave these to the maid who did an excellent job of keeping the room beautifully clean ea day. We found the bath to be roomy and totally 21st Century -- Kohler sink was lovely. elegant painted colors graced the walls as did a lovely queen 4 poster bed. Wood plantation blinds gave the windows(4 in all) total privacy. Flooring was wood plank in charming room furnished in period antiques. We were told a steward will light your fire (fire in the Great Room fireplace, that is) . Well, Enjoy! And thanks, Uncle Gabe--(Gabriel Maupin III)!
