Very enjoyable stay in one of the larger Colonial Houses (Lewis House) has a small kitchenette with two small refrigerators--only drawback was no plates or silverware but since no DW managed w paper plates etc since all that was needed for breakfast and sandwiches.
Location, location, location was superb--could hear the Fife and Drum Corps coming down Duke Of Gloucester street and walk one block pass the house's own garden and in the middle of it all--short walk each morning to golf practice facility, Williamsburg Inn pool and the Lodge (try the Blackbird Bakery in the Merchant's Square area for the best coffee and pastries--fresh bread of the day goes on half price every day at 5:00.)

My family stayed at the Lewis House, one of the colonial houses in Williamsburg. The Lewis house is located one block away from the main historical area of Williamsburg. It’s on a main street so during the day you’ll have a stream of traffic (including busses) that pass in front. The house itself was what we expected. Downstairs had the master bedroom, sitting area and kitchen area. Upstairs there were three separate bedrooms and a bathroom. AC worked really well. Adequate parking was available. Access to the pool and fitness center was included.

What made this a very poor stay is that the landscaping crew awakened us at 6:30am one morning. Upon contacting the front desk, they acknowledged this occurs and had no control over when this occurred since the landscaping was done by an outside company. What was also surprisingly is that they landscaping for over 2 hours! Considering we were paying $500/night, it was very disappointing and they didn’t offer any compensation nor informed us that this would be occurring.

I’ve been going to Williamsburg for 40 years. We’ve tried numerous accommodations. We always liked the colonial experience in the Colonial Houses. We have also stayed in the Inn which is exceptional. This visit we chose the Peter Hay Kitchen Colonial House. It was a nice little house but it was tired. The curtains and upholstery were old. The kitchen is ancient and, even though it has a 2 burner stove it has not a plate, fork, or pot in sight. We like to picnic and it sure would have been nice to have a plate or a fork nearby. I know the Society has updated the Inn, and it is lovely. Time to spend a little money in these Houses.
There are amenities like business center, concierge, spa, newspapers, pool etc at the main Inn or the Lodge. All are available to the Colonial House guests.

We loved staying here. It was very convenient for visiting Colonial Williamsburg. We thought that the price was reasonable. The decor was right in line with the colonial theme. We only stayed a night, so didn't get to take advantage of the amenities like the pools or 2 hour complimentary bikes. That would have been fun and it's nice that it is included with the room. The check in was a bit confusing though. You don't really know the location of the house you will be in or where to park until you check in. Knowing ahead of time would have helped with planning and prevented us from having to move the car in the middle of the day. Also, once we got there we couldn't figure out how to get in. There is a brass plate over the keyhole so you can't see where you need to put the key and there are no signs showing you that it is even the right door to use. I guess the goal is to keep the building looking authentic, but it would be nice to have instructions upon check in so that you are aware. Other than the two minor complications, everything was great and we would definitely stay again.

The room was clean and attractive, very self contained. Very good service. Easy parking 20 yards from the room. The best thing about it was that we woke up and walked out to DOG street which was 40 yards away. Staying here, one is immersed in the Colonial Williamsburg experience. When we were tired, we walked from DOG street right into our room. When we wanted to go back to DOG street, we were right there! All the amenities of the Wmsburg Inn are available; their swimming pools and spa were wonderful, really!
