My husband and I visited the bed and breakfast the two night following our wedding. Bill (the innkeeper) was so accommodating. We knew we would arrive late at night and he assured us it wasn't a problem. We stayed in the President's suite. It had a private balcony with a fantastic view and was very homey. The inn is full...

I just returned from a 3 day stay at the York River Inn. Due to the time of year, I was the only guest of the 3 room B and B. The host and owner, Bill, was such a charming and interesting host.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at York River Inn. What a very exquisite Bed and Breakfast. We were greeted by Bill Cole immediately and he made us feel so welcomed. We took in the view from the deck of the York River. That evening we kicked back and relaxed having not a care in the world for...

Innkeeper, William W. Cole, is the epitome of a gracious, knowledgeable host. Welcomed personally from the time we drove up the drive until we reluctantly left, his hospitality was always present. Our room was most comfortable with great views of the York River. Being a foodaholic, we found his breakfast presentation and content to be beyond reproach. Can't wait to...

Enjoyed the Pocahontas Room this visit after staying in the Washington Room previously. All the rooms in this B&B are wonderfully decorated with historic photos, maps, books and curios that bring the namesake to life. The beds are comfortable, the terry robes luxurious, the amenities more plentiful than at a best-rated hotel. Bill's breakfasts are varied and scrumptious -- many...

This was a great place to stop for the night. The view from the Presidents' room was amazing - overlooking the York River and the bridge (which at night is lit up). Bill was very helpful with everything including with dinner reservations. Breakfast was lovely the next morning and we could have stayed chatting with Bill and the other guests...

Wonderful stay at the York River Inn --- Bill Cole, our host made us feel right at home and shared his knowledge of the Yorktown area and Virginia History.
