“Hmpton Roads Dreaming”
Reviewed December 27, 2013

The best B&B I've every stayed in, and there have been many worldwide. I suggest the Presidents' Room because it has the best view and a little outdoor porch. The village (walk to) has nice shops and an espresso cafe. There's even a small public beach for the brave. You won't need a big restaurant after Bill's breakfast - at least not until way in the evening! And nothing will compare to his meal.

Really enjoyed our stay. Bill's breakfasts were delicious! Ask for the cooked pineapple and the peach and mango dish. He does wonders with bagel thins. Conversation was great. Don't worry if you forget to pack something. Bill stocks the suites with almost everything you need.

We stayed here for 3 nights while attending a family wedding in Williamsburg. We had the President's room overlooking the York River. The room was spacious and cosy, had a lovely view and sundeck. We got to see the bridge open twice which was pretty interesting. It is nice and quiet, great breakfast with local fare and recipes. Bill is a wealth of knowledge on the region and a great host. It is a quick walk down to the dock and historical town.
Thanks for a great stay

First of all this was my first time staying at B&B, it was the weekend of my anniversary the location was excellent you did not have to drive unless you wanted too. The room we stayed in was the Pocahontas room it was very clean I was very impressed as my husband was too, I enjoyed the artifacts that was through out the room, the bed was very comfortable. The innkeeper Bill was very polite, he was the best thank you Bill. Let me also say the breakfast was excellent , we also went site seeing not to mention we could walk right to the beach, the food at the Riverwalk Grill was also excellent , the people where very friendly. I'm going to spend all my anniversaries at the B&B, as well as getaway. I would highly recommend this B&B.

Great location overlooking the James River. Located on a quite cul-de-sac. Only 12 miles from Colonial Williamsburg by way of Colonial Parkway. We stayed in Washington Suite very nice room with sitting area. Only downfall was the lighting in the bathroom and no mirror over bathroom sink because of slope of the wall. Definitely need more lighting in bathroom was hard to see to put on makeup and do hair.
Bill(owner) great host and breakfast food was wonderful. Very creative with his meals.
Would highly recommend you staying here. It felt like home!

Yorkriver, Owner at York River Inn Bed and Breakfast, responded to this review, August 5, 2013
I'm sorry the guest was disappointed with the mirror in the bathroom---because I have always been aware of that deficit, I provide a three-level light mirror with both regular and magnified sides to help folks who need brighter or more concentrated light for make-up or other purposes. Sorry she didn't find it on the dresser in the bedroom. It was noted in the amenities book that I provide and is in plain view. Glad they enjoyed their visit despite this issue! The guest looked lovely every day even though she didn't have a good lighted mirror!!

I experienced an amazing breakfast that was full of creative, absolutely delicious food and wonderful conversation with other guests and innkeeper Bill Cole. The spectacular view over the river made me feel as I was on a cruise ship. Bill is a superb cook -- breakfast was like dining for dinner. He has mastered the attention for detail and knows how to pamper his guests.

This venue is perfect for seeing the numerous historical attractions. Not only do you have a charming room and common area, but you also benefit from the extraordinary knowledge that Bill provides about history and the area. Add amazing breakfasts to the list and you have the perfect place to stay. I really enjoyed watching the many birds that stop by to feed and the peaceful view of the river. I will definitely stay here again!

The York River Inn Bed & Breakfast is situated on a high bluff overlooking the York River in a colonial-style building. It is the only waterfront bed and breakfast in the Yorktown and Colonial Williamsburg area. The York River Inn Bed & Breakfast is the ideal location for a relaxing visit in historic Yorktown, Virginia. The York River Inn B & B is also a delightful place to enjoy the historic areas of Yorktown and Williamsburg. Gracious settings, generous amenities, and knowledgeable host create a memorable experience rather than just a night away from home. All three guestrooms are filled with standard amenities enhanced by many charming and useful additions--the innkeeper's extensive travel and hospitality career have contributed to his skill at providing the finest accommodations possible. The common area includes a sofa and comfortable chairs, where you can browse through piles of current magazines. The refrigerator is fully stocked for guests. The innkeeper has a vast selection of Virginia books, maps and extensive materials on travel from all over the US and the world. You are welcome to enjoy the shared deck with deck chairs, as well as the cookies and treats always set out on the dining room table. A gourmet breakfast served in the elegant antiques-filled dining area overlooking the river is a highlight of the experience provided at the York River Inn. The Inn is only a short distance from the colonial area and other attractions of Yorktown and is only 15 minutes from Colonial Williamsburg by the way of the scenic Colonial Parkway. The local area is filled with historic, cultural, and entertainment activities without the stress of a busy crowded town. In Yorktown itself are two major historical attractions celebrating the winning of American independence October 19,1781 when George Washington accepted the surrender of the British under Lord Cornwallis, an event commemorated by the 1881 victory monument just down river from the York River Inn. ... more   less
