We made an impromptu visit to Williiamsburg and were calling around looking for a place to stay. Dick told us to come right over. We were just minutes away and that was not a problem. Both Dick and Sue were both so accommodating. They brought us up ice cold drinks immediately upon our arrival and also told us of all the local fare. They also had menus in the room of all the local restaurants and gave us recommendations (and a discount card). The room was very nice and clean and the rest of the house was very inviting. It was filled with local historical items and lots of things to look at. The B&B was in a very convenient location and was within walking distance of most of the historical attractions. Dick and Sue was VERY welcoming, to say the least. The highlight of the entire stay, however, was breakfast. We enjoyed "Patrick Henry's Favorite" in our room, by candlelight. We want to go back to Williamsburg, just to stay at Governor's Trace. Thank you Dick and Sue for everything!
