We stayed at this lovely bed and breakfast by accident. I had mistakenly failed to book our nights correctly on our recent trip to Washington DC. So, while on the road, on our way to DC, I disovered the error and realized we had no place to stay on saturday night. We could have gone all the way to DC and stayed a night somewhere. Instead I decided to take the family to Williamsburg to start our vacation. What a stroke of luck! I came upon this lovely B and B and booked it for arrival on saturday. When we arrived I was overwhelmed by the pure colonial feelof the home and gardens. We wandered through the gardens trying to identify the herbs and flowers and marveling at how beautiful the grounds were. Someone has a true love of gardening in this home! We were escorted in, offered coffee, tea and water and help with our bags. The owners are wonderful hosts. The rooms are charming and very comfortable. I was nervous bringing two children into such a beautiful home. Our kids, 14 and 10, were made to feel very much at home and the owners took time to show our kids the musical instruments on the second floor. The house is a 5 minute walk from the shopping square and the main road of colonial Williamsburg. Breakfast in the morning was a real treat. I wanted to sleep in, but my wife knocked at me until I joined her downstairs. I am glad she did. Fresh squeezed juice, fruit, pancakes and a wonderful syrup of the times made with nutmeg. Fresh honey from the owners bee hives too! We had only one day, but we will definately be back! We were sad to leave. We could have stayed a week!
