“Wonderful experience”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

My family had the pleasure of staying at the Alice Person House in July and we absolutely loved it! Our hostess, Jean Mathews, served a sumptuous breakfast and was readily available to answer any questions we had about Williamsburg and the surrounding areas. The location of the Alice Person House is within walking distance of Historical Williamsburg and only a short drive of Busch Gardens and Water Country USA. We will definitely stay here again in the near future!

Four of us "Vintage" Southern ladies stayed recently at the Alice Person House for 3 nights. It's in a convenient location (walk to Colonial Williamsburg, restaurants, and shops) and easy drive to others along Richmond Rd as well as Historic Jamestown. Jean, the owner/innkeeper is delightful and extremely helpful and accommodating. The house was very clean and the breakfasts delicious...and bountiful.
Thanks for a great time! We would definitely recommend...and stay here again if we travel back to the area.

Room Tip: One room on second floor had twin beds and the other a nice king bed. Both were delightful

There were five of us in our group and we were happily accommodated in a bedroom and a two-room suite. The house was gorgeous; the hostess was the best and the entire experience at this wonderful Bed & Breakfast just topped out a great adventure. It was a very short walk to Colonial Williamsburg. You cannot go wrong by staying here.....HIGHLY recommend it!

We loved Alice Person House. We stayed for 4 nights in a King room and highly recommend it. Our room was spotless with a super-comfortable bed and the house is warm and inviting. Jean was a perfect host - friendly, helpful and a great cook. When our car battery died she even drove us to the restaurant we'd been planning on visiting and boosted the car battery the next morning! It was an easy walk to Colonial Williamsburg and it's right beside William and Mary on a lovely street full of beautifully kept old homes. If we ever go back to Williamsburg we will definitely stay here!

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights while we toured Williamsburg, Yorktown, and Jamestown. The home is in a very nice neighborhood next to William and Mary and walking distance to restaurants. Colonial Williamsburg is a bit of a hike, so we recommend driving to the Visitor's Center and walking or shuttle from there. We were very happy staying at the Alice Person House. Jean keeps an immaculate, comfy and welcoming home that is beautifully decorated. Our lovely room was light and spacious, had a very comfortable and beautiful king bed, a large, modern en suite bathroom, comfy chairs for reading, and a flat screen tv. The rooms are situated such that it was very quiet even though there were other guests. Our favorite part of this B&B is the generous, delicious breakfast and wonderful, lively conversations with Jean and her other guests each morning! As a side note, we inadvertently left some audio tapes in our room. I emailed Jean when we discovered this and she had them in the mail to us that afternoon. Would stay here again and highly recommend. Do go to the archeologist led tour and museum at Historic Jamestown, and don't miss Bassett Hall (John D. Rockefeller, Jr's home in Williamsburg) and its tour.

My husband and I stayed here for 4 days at the beginning of summer and it was wonderful. The location is perfect and within walking distance of sites. Breakfast was excellent and rooms were spotless. The wonderful host gave us a free room upgrade to a suite since we were the only ones at the house for a couple of days. The room we had was full of windows with beautiful views of trees from every vantage point. I would not have minded just hanging around the room all day for a nice vacation. Hope to have the chance to stay here again. Easy and convenient parking. Truly wonderful.

Recently stayed at Alice Person House and would highly recommend it. We stayed in the twin bed room which was large and bright, beautifully decorated down to Teddy Bears on the bed! The owner Jeane was a delight and we enjoyed excellent tips in addition to the wonderful breakfast.Jeane is very accommodating and interested in your needs. I would not look for anywhere else on a return trip to the area.

Room Tip: All of them are great!
