My hotel room was in one of the restored houses of Colonial Williamsburg. It was wonderful to return to the Old Town at the end of the day, and completely escape into America that was! The room was spacious and comfortable. It was decorated in the 18th century style, so the room may seem Spartan to modern eyes. However, all...

This was my fourth trip to Williamsburg and my second time staying in a Colonial House. While the Inn and the Lodge are fine and above average accomodations, as a frequent traveler in hotels I would not choose to stay anywhere else besides the Colonial Houses when visiting. They may not have big comfy couches, wifi etc... but you are...

I had always wanted to try the Colonial Houses and I was not at all disappointed. What could be better than walking from your room right on Duke of Gloucester Street? It was magical coming back in the afternoon and relaxing on our front porch while watching the fife and drums march right up the street. We stayed in the...

We used to come to Williamsburg once per year. We started vacationing at other places for the last fifteen years, and this year decided to see Williamsburg once again. We stayed in the Orlando Jones House, rooms 3059 and 3060 which we previously stayed in about fifteen years ago. We were so happy to see that the rooms are still...

Stayed at the Market a House Tavern. The best part of Colonial Housing is that you're right in town and can step out and start the day right away. Service is fine. We checked in at the Williamsburb lodge and staff showed us to the parking area behind the tavern. Don't know why but you have to get your admission...

If you've not yet stayed in one of the colonial houses on your visit to Williamsburg, you really should because it very much enhances the immersion into America's colonial history. I've stayed in them twice, and I really liked my room at the Brick House Tavern this last time because of its central location to all of the historic district's...

We have twice stayed in the Colonial Houses - once with my wife and I and again with our family of five - and I suspect we'd only stay in a Colonial House again. Yes, they're expensive. But they give you a very unique experience. There is nothing like waking up early and being almost alone in the village. We...

We stayed at the Chiswell-Bucktrout House during or stay in Colonial Williamsburg and were not disappointed. It was great to just be able to roll out your door right into the action of the day. The rooms are a little spendy considering their size but staying on site beat driving in from some chain motel. Due to the age of...

We decided to stay & eat right in colonial Williamsburg to extend our visit to evening and next morning hours. That part was awesome, we could walk to dinner & entertainment options and were among the first visitors talking with the tradesmen & women the next morning before it got hot. Our room at the Brickhouse Tavern was convenient &...

PROS The Lewis house is pretty central to everything. It has a beautiful garden in the back, and parking right behind. The curtains and blinds close tight and the bed curtains pull out just enough so the huge street light that is right outside the window is blocked. With the rental of the house you get a 25% coupon at...

“We were on the front of the house. I bet in the summer it would be a bit noisy.”
  • There was wood there for a fire if the weather permitted.
  • The room was painted dark brown and it was really peaceful.

“Choose a house over a tavern room. It will be larger.”
  • The bath is all in one room no vanity.
  • Rooms are quite small and if you want 2 beds they are twins.
