Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 28 October 2007

My boyfriend and I decided in September that we would love to celebrate our fifth anniversary with a special, romantic weekend in Williamsburg, Virginia. We booked the library room at Colonial gardens based on good reviews we read here and the great deal we were able to get on the room. We LOVED the room, though it was somewhat small and located directly off the main foyer of the house. Noise was minimal and the decor/size of the room made it very romantic and cozy. I could have spent hours (and did, in the evenings) browsing the many books from Karen and Ron's personal collection while relaxing in bed. Souvenirs and keepsakes from Ron's many travels in the air force abounded and were a wonderful, personal touch.

The property is gorgeous and feels like a true hidden treasure - it's easy to miss tucked away on Jamestown Road, but I like it that way! Knowing and loving this B&B now feels like an insider's secret, and I felt like house guests of Karen's and Ron's rather than a customer at an inn. The inn also has a truly ideal location; a drive to Colonial Williamsburg, the Merchant's Square shopping district, the College of William and Mary, or the Williamsburg Winery takes only five minutes.

Karen and Ron are the most gracious hosts; Karen recommended two wonderful restaurants for dinner to help make our anniversary even more special. We had two FABULOUS breakfasts (the croissant filled with cream cheese is to die for! So is the French toast!) complimented with delightful conversation, a morning weather report, and suggestions about what to do for the day. Complimentary afternoon snacks in the sunroom were a great touch and came in handy!

Overall, I cannot recommend this B&B highly enough. We will definitely stay there on our next trip to Virginia (this one turned out to be far too short!) and will enthusiastically recommend Colonial Gardens to friends and family looking for a place to stay in Williamsburg.

Welcoming and warm, the innkeepers Karen and Ron were gracious hosts.
Karen provided us with wonderful gourmet breakfasts that we are missing as we write this. The inn had beautiful orignial watercolors and paintings that complimented the relaxing surroundings. Karen provided us with morning weather reports and suggestions for the day.
She was very hospitable and knowelegable of the area. We stayed in the Primrose room and it was cozy, comfortable and quiet. The inn was so close to everything in Williamsburg and Jamestown making things very easy to get around. This is the place to stay in the area.

We stayed a couple of nights for our anniversary and had hoped to reserve one of the suites but they ended up all being booked, luckily the smaller room (Library Room) was available. It was a very nice and cozy room. The extra space wasn't missed and is perfect for two that for a cozy night's sleep. The wonderful selection of books to read are amazing.

The innkeepers were so warm and inviting and the breakfast was far beyond amazing! Ask for the pancakes when you go! :) The house is beautiful and the complimentary snacks and beverages was an unexpected and great touch. We played some checkers and relaxed in the sun room on our first night there.

We will definitely stay again when we can get the chance to run down to Williamsburg. If your looking for a great place to stay while in the area, there is no other place to go! (And it's really close to the college).

Thanks!!

Our weekend was lovely for our first anniversary. Quiet, comfortable and very romantic. Our room was large and romantically furnished, breakfast was delicious and afternoons in the sunroom were very relaxing. Thanks to our hosts for making our stay memorable.

Clean, friendly atmosphere for a great weekend experience close to Colonial Williamsburg, Jamestown, and Yorktown. The room was cozy and inviting, while the food was magnificently delicious! Don't forget to spend an end to your evening sipping fine Virginia wine while relaxing in their back porch. Ideally located to all of the areas major tourist attractions finding your way around town is as simple as can be.

My wife and I celebrated our ten year anniversary there and we were very impressed. The people who run the B & B are to be complimented. It almost was if they had a hand in the weather department as well. When we stayed there in July, the highs were only in the mid-80s. We stayed in the Azaelea Room and it was extremely nice. We had everything that we could ask for and more. If you go to Williamsburg, stay there and ask for the package deal and you will love the outcome.

My husband & I won a stay at this B&B from his command. Unfortunately it was only for 1 night!!! We really enjoyed our stay. The house itself was very warm & inviting. Breakfast was wonderful! And Karen was very sweet & helpful.

Our stay was overall beyond wonderful!!! We look forward to being able to visit again.
