Accommodations were amazing and the staff is excellent! To spend a weekend living in history was amazing! The staff here was second to none. We dined at the King's Arms and we were educated and entertained while we ate a splendid dinner.

You will always have the option of the Williamsburg Inn (elegant, pricey) or Lodge for breakfast. Depending upon the time of year Shields Tavern might be open for breakfast. You can also walk to Market Square at the end of Duke of Gloucester street. There are several places there. Our favorite in Williamsburg requires a ten minute drive. Old Chickahominy House. It’s a real southern style restaurant. Very reasonable and very local!

"Each housing is very different so read discription carefully."
"Choose a room on second floor facing the street to avoid the sound of people walking on the creaky floors at night."
"Our house had two bedrooms on separate floors which was nice! Also had two bathrooms, very handy!"
"Rooms can be very different. Check the floor plans on their website."
"ask for canopy bed"
