We spent 3 nights at the York River Inn, Yorktown, Va recently and thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Bill Cole a fantastic host. Besides the wonderful views from the Presidents suite the highlight was the excitement of what was coming for breakfast. Bill never gave us the same meal twice. He put so much thought into his cooking and the...

My wife and I spent 3 evenings at the York River Inn, and plan to return. We were in the President's Room with a wonderful view of the York River from our balcony. Each morning started with an amazing breakfast of unique and homemade specialities, each wonderfully served and clarified (many were things I'd never enjoyed before, but hope to...

This was our second year that we stopped at the York River Inn B&B en route to OBX. It is such a delight, after a long drive from CT, to pull in to Yorktown B&B and be greeted by Bill. This year we chose to stay in the Pocahontas Room and we were not disappointed. Comfortable bed, quiet & we...

Our two night visit at the York River Inn was outstanding! Bill is the perfect host and shows his skill as a chef! The breakfasts were tasty and all were homemade! The room was comfortable with the downstairs providing a view of the river. The bridge in view from the balcony offers scenes of ships using the drawbridge to reach...

Deliberatly booked a B@B so that I could meet and talk with ordinary and everyday Americans, Bill is neither ordinary or everyday. As soon as I arrived he was explaining and showing me his garden plants, his books and his home. Staying at a BB is quite different experience from a hotel and you need to want this or else...

Bill was a gracious host. Extremely knowledgeable about tVirginia and local history. Very helpful in guiding our daily plan of attack. Breakfast was wonderful, as were the other guests. We had the Presidents Room which offered a lovely view of the York River, as well as its own private balcony. Hope to go back soon!

I cannot say enough how much my husband and I enjoyed the York River Inn Bed and Breakfast.

The York River Inn is located on a bluff overlooking the York River. Peaceful, quiet, beautiful. We spent three nights and it was a wonderful respite after sightseeing all day at Williamsburg, Yorktown and Jamestown. We're not crazy about crowds and traffic, so we picked Yorktown as a home base. The owner of the B&B, Bill, is an expert on...

We had a very enjoyable experience at York River Inn.... Bill was truly a delight and really took pride in his work. The Washington Suite was beautiful and charming.... a wonderful place to stay. I would recommend this B&B to anyone looking for a quiet weekend away!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The York River Inn Bed & Breakfast is situated on a high bluff overlooking the York River in a colonial-style building. It is the only waterfront bed and breakfast in the Yorktown and Colonial Williamsburg area. The York River Inn Bed & Breakfast is the ideal location for a relaxing visit in historic Yorktown, Virginia. The York River Inn B & B is also a delightful place to enjoy the historic areas of Yorktown and Williamsburg. Gracious settings, generous amenities, and knowledgeable host create a memorable experience rather than just a night away from home. All three guestrooms are filled with standard amenities enhanced by many charming and useful additions--the innkeeper's extensive travel and hospitality career have contributed to his skill at providing the finest accommodations possible. The common area includes a sofa and comfortable chairs, where you can browse through piles of current magazines. The refrigerator is fully stocked for guests. The innkeeper has a vast selection of Virginia books, maps and extensive materials on travel from all over the US and the world. You are welcome to enjoy the shared deck with deck chairs, as well as the cookies and treats always set out on the dining room table. A gourmet breakfast served in the elegant antiques-filled dining area overlooking the river is a highlight of the experience provided at the York River Inn. The Inn is only a short distance from the colonial area and other attractions of Yorktown and is only 15 minutes from Colonial Williamsburg by the way of the scenic Colonial Parkway. The local area is filled with historic, cultural, and entertainment activities without the stress of a busy crowded town. In Yorktown itself are two major historical attractions celebrating the winning of American independence October 19,1781 when George Washington accepted the surrender of the British under Lord Cornwallis, an event commemorated by the 1881 victory monument just down river from the York River Inn. ... more   less
