My wife and I wanted to get away for a short weekend to celebrate a special event. We picked this location out after searching B&B's in the Williamsburg area. Not really knowing what exactly to expect here, we were VERY pleasantly surprised with the clean and quaint accommodations, location to the historic district, and the wonderful hospitality shown by Dick and Sue in their home.
At check in time, we were greeted at the front door and given a quick tour of the house and detailed explanations of what to expect during our stay and some great suggestions on places to see and eat.
The breakfast in the room was absolutely "over-the-top" special each morning and was one of the key highlights of our visit. Dick and Sue were always accessible and very helpful with anything we needed.
This will definitely be a place that we revisit when back in the area.
