The room and amenities are nice but the breakfast was very unoriginal and skimpy. We each got a single slice of French Bread, a small scoop of scrambled eggs, undercooked bacon and some fruit. When we went out after eating we were still hungry.

Spent a late fall weekend at Colonial Gardens for an elegant and intimate wedding, filled with tradition and love. Guests traveled from near and far, all impressed with the stunning grounds, outstanding cuisine and gorgeous B&B. The entire event reflected the romance and beauty of Williamsburg and the hearts of the newlyweds. The owners Karen and Ron were amazing and...

Colonial Garden is superb! Extremely comfortable, clean, and relaxing with at-home ambiance. Small and cozy yet tucked away on a main street, it was the best B&B we stayed at on our vacation. We wish we had planned to stay longer. Our room, the library, was uniquely decorated and very comfortable and quiet. The hostess, Karen, is wonderful. Her elegant...

The other 5 star reviews say almost everything but I'd like to add that it was the small details that made the difference. We arrived to find the small inn empty but the door open, (flame less) candles flickering, relaxing music playing in the sun room, a bottle of chilled white wine (honor system contribution) and a personalized welcome note...

We chose this B&B for our small wedding. We had 11 guests and the venue was just perfect for something small. We chose to have the owner, Katie, be our photographer.
