Clean, well-furnished, comfortable beds and walking proximity to Colonial Williamsburg. Owner very knowledgeable regarding the history of the area and what to see and do. The vintage home has charm and colonial character. Would certainly stay here again if I had the opportunity.

This is a wonderful B&B in an excellent location in Williamsburg. It is across the street from College of William & Mary and a 5-minute walk to Colonial Williamsburg. The room was very comfortable and clean. The breakfast was amazing. I can't wait to return.

First time staying at a Bed & Breakfast. We had exceptional service. The owners paid great attention to detail and made sure customer service always came first. Will be back again next year. Great location too! You can walk to Williamsburg and Jamestown was just a quick ride down the road.
