Super B&B, with a great location, staff & ownership. All the rooms were extremely clean and large. Great breakfast and service from Sara. Enjoyed the breakfast discussion with owner Dave and happy hour with. Phil. Very hands-on ownership.

Can't say enough about our stay and the staff. They were accommodating in every way possible and provided valuable information, tickets, and insight about the area and its history. The family that owns this house has a history of their own which is also interesting and fun. The rooms are clean, well-kept, and the staff welcomes input. House is large...

We found this place by chance and were only able to stay one night but I would recommend the Hornsby Inn as your base for 2-3 nights when visiting the Historic Triangle. You are only a short drive from both Jamestown and Williamsburg and have a wonderful, peaceful place to come back to each night with lovely views over the...

We stayed at this beautiful B&B for 2 nights on July 24th and 25th in Yorktown Virginia. This is a beautiful home with 5 rooms to rent. Our rooms were on the third floor and were huge suites with private bath. Furnishings are antiques collected by the family. Wonderful family history is on display and our host Phil was very...

David and Phil, owners of the Hornsby Inn, provided us with wonderful hospitality. We had a great anniversary week-end. We highly recommend the Hornsby Inn to stay while enjoying historical Yorktown Virginia.

This is the best place to stay. The house is full of history. The accommodations were first rate. Spotless and comfortable. We stayed in the Chesapeake room and it is perfect. We are in walking distance of the historic Yorktown and the beach. The local restaurants are charming. We have found our perfect vacation spot!

The Hornsby House Inn is a GEM ! The 'brother' Innkeepers, Dave & Phil are extremely gracious and friendly -- and they serve the most fabulously delicious and large full breakfast. A different menu each morning! They shared stories about growing up in Yorktown and living their childhood in this very home. Dave & Phil provided us with restaurant info;...

This B&B was a terrific home away from home for us during our visit to this part of Virginia. The owners were extremely caring and responsive. They gave us great recommendations for dinner each night (we stayed a total of 3). The home is elegant and beautiful and very conveniently located a short walk from the beach and the restaurants....

Do yourself a favor and skip the basic beige hotel room and come to this truly elegant historical home. The inn keepers are the grandsons of the original owner and the entire house still has its original furnings,art and family photos. I stayed in the Hornsby Room on the third floor where I had a scrumptious king size bed,a huge...

Wow! What an amazing place. We squeezed in this visit to Yorktown at the last minute on our tour of Virginia and the Carolinas and were SO pleased we did. Hornsby House is everything a B&B should be. It is a lovely old family house in a fantastic situation overlooking the Yorktown monument. Every step of the booking process was...
