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.
