This is an extremely welcoming and home like atmosphere. The guest relations folks are outstanding at customer service. You will enjoy the tranquility of the back porch, the vast movie library and beverage offerings, & especially the top quality breakfast! The rooms are cozy, & the bathrooms are outfitted with state of the art jacuzzi tubs! Compare this to the...

We stayed in the Thomas room, so cozy! The back porch is a relaxing place to sit and read a book or just enjoy the view. The innkeepers were fun and so friendly. They were very helpful suggesting several places for dinner. And breakfast was wonderful! A delightful stay!!

My wife and I enjoyed our stay at this charming, quiet, and historic B&B. Our hosts were friendly and attentive without being overbearing or intrusive. We stayed in the Thomas Room which is cozy and has a large, well-appointed bath. If you have mobility issues, the steps leading to the 2nd floor are steep and narrow. This is NOT a...

Celebrated our 4th anniversary here and it was so relaxing! We enjoyed the steam shower and huge tub in our suite. Nancy and Mary were so sweet to us and the creme brûlée French toast was the best thing I've ever ate for breakfast! Hope we can come back soon!

If we cannot stay with family, we stay HERE at Willis Graves B&B because it is closer to HOME than any place on earth. The rooms are delightful, clean, cozy, romantic..and the breakfasts the next morning are better than any B&B breakfast anywhere. Choices of entrees all homemade and to your specifications. Cheerful service, caring owners, historical significance make this...

We've been to over 90 different B&Bs over the last 35 years. Willis Graves is now in our top 5. We particularly appreciate when the innkeepers are hands-on and pay attention to every detail to make your stay memorable. Nancy has perfected that craft. The colonial style house has all the charm of Colonial Williamsburg and beautifully appointed with antiques...

My husband, Roland, and I stayed in the William Rouse cabin suite for his birthday. It was more than expected from the online pictures--a clean, cozy, home-away-from-home. The sitting area in the lower level of the cabin was very comfortable. The jacuzzi had more jets than most tubs. My husband has restless leg syndrome and it really helped him to...

I needed a two night retreat to refresh and rejuvenate. Willis Graves was just perfect. After a fantastic breakfast, I spent the day hiking at the nearby England Idlewild Park and enjoying the sunshine on the beautiful terrace. I walked into town for lovely early dinner, then picked out a movie from the great collection for a quiet evening. Can't...
