Hornsby House Inn
Ranked #1 of 3 Yorktown B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 December 2011

Visiting the Colonial Triangle (Jamestown, WIlliamsburg, Yorktown, VA) with friends found this gem right in Yorktown itself, and within walking distance to the Visitor Center. Reservations easy to make; very informative Web site; very reasonable rates.
Host David greeted us upon arrival; gave a tour of the accommodations; set up for a wine & cheese repast; had the fireplace going; all while regaling us with the history of the house and family.
Rooms spacious and very nicely decorated; nice sitting areas; linens and towels luxurious; beds very comfortable. Stayed in the Monument Suite, which has a porch that overlooks the Victory Monument and the York river.
Breakfast the next morning beyond expectations - OJ, coffee, tea, fruit, eggs benedict, and french toast. Ate so much we skipped lunch.
We will definitely return for a future stay!

My wife and I stayed one night at the Hornsby House Inn on November 11, 2011. We stayed in the Monument Grand Suite. This room is the largest in the house and has a king bed and two twins. It has a well appointed private bath and a walk out terrace that overlooks the York River and the Yorktown Battlefield Monument. There is a working wood-burning fireplace in the room. The king bed is a large four poster bed and was very comfortable. The furnishing in the room are very tasteful and functional. There are hardwood floors throughout the room and ceramic tile in the bathroom.

Breakfast was served at 8:45AM in the main dinning room. The morning we were there, they served eggs Benedict with cinnamon rolls. The food was fabulous!! The staff was very friendly, and eager to make our stay as pleasant as possible. The owner was raised in the house and knows the area very well and can help with site-seeing plans.

We liked our stay so much we’ve already pre-booked for the 4th of July 2012 – can’t wait!!
