“Beautifully decorated rooms, easy driving distance to old Williamsburg.”

Everything was lovely, great rooms, wonderful service. Only one thing we would change...the breakfast, though delicious, was served cool-ish, not piping hot.

Thank you so much for your kind review. It was a pleasure to meet you and your sisters, we are so happy you had a nice time. I am sorry to hear your breakfast was not "piping hot" We do try to keep breakfast hot for our guest with out making it to dry when folks are late for breakfast. I will make sure to check our methods to see if there is something we can do to fix this. Hope to see you ladies again

We stayed for 2 nights in the Primrose suite. Overall we had a great experience! The only thing that would have been a nice bonus would have been a tub in the bathroom (the shower was quite small). They have four different rooms and the Primrose has the smallest of the bathrooms. The breakfast is out of this world! Karen is an amazing cook and will not disappoint! On a side note, we accidentally left an expensive item of jewelry in our room and did not realize it for several days. We called Karen and she happily checked over each nook and cranny in our room and found them. We were so thankful that she is such an honest person. On another side note, the bath robes are Wonderful!

Thank you so much for your kind review. it was so nice to meet you folks. You can not imagine how much it made me feel good that I was able to send those diamond earrings to you. I had an irreplaceable piece of jewelry stolen while on vacation a few months ago, I know the heartache. Hope to see you both again.

We stayed at Colonial B&B as a family to celebrate our parent's 50th wedding anniversary. Because we took over all 4 rooms, we felt so at home. Karen cared for us in every way, yet we felt a lot of privacy. It was almost as if we were all together just in our own home.
A very valuable item of mine was lost during our stay. However the item was found and returned to me, although a month had gone by before finding it! I appreciated that Karen still valued us although we had long gone.
We felt like we were Karen's private guests, not just customers. Thank you Karen!

Thank you so much for your kind review! I was so glad we were able to find it and send it to you. I know first hand how heartbreaking it can be to lose something you value so. It made me feel so much better being able to do that for you. Enjoy your travels!

My husband and I recently celebrated our anniversary with a trip to Williamsburg, VA. We stayed for 2 nights at Colonial Gardens Bed & Breakfast based on the reviews. Thanks to Karen, we had the wonderful stay ever! Karen assisted us with directions, info on things to do, and even made our dinner reservations!!! This B&B is beautiful, quiet, relaxing and boosting in hospitality--an important factor often undermined!! Breakfast was absolutely delicious, healthy and completely filling!! The rooms are very spacious and elegantly decorated. This isn't your typical B&B--it's way better!! And perfectly situated just a couple minutes from Colonial Williamsburg, Jamestown, and Yorktown! We recommend this B&B to everyone and plan on returning again in the coming months!! -- Thanks, Todd and Aivelis

Recently stayed 2 nights here with my wife over the New Years break. The house itself is very nice and situated on a very pretty piece of land just a 2 minutes drive or so from Williamsburg. Karen and Ron were extremely friendly and were willing and able to help with any question or request we had. Karen cooks an amazing breakfast every morning and will sit down to talk with the guests once everyone is finished eating. I HIGHLY recommend staying here if you plan on visiting Williamsburg any time soon!

The atmosphere was so very comfortable. It felt like I was at a favorite relative's home. Karen was not only a gracious hostess but a great cook and conversationalist. I was blessed to have met some really nice people there at breakfast. I must say the times at breakfast was a very favorite part for me. You can see that Karen has a gift and a love of caring for people. I stayed in the Primrose. It was perfect for my much needed getaway.
