Being this was my first experience in a bed and breakfast, I have to say I had an amazing experience. The room was beautifully decorated and the accommodations were splendid. Bill did an excellent job with breakfast and his knowledge of the area attractions was top notch. I will definitely return in the future.

First off, let it be known that I'm a very skeptical and critical person and am not easily pleased when it comes to accomodations. That being said, please read on. My husband and I stayed in the Washington Suite for our honeymoon and had the best time. We had such a wonderful time that we stayed an extra night! Bill...

My expectations were low when I saw that the B&B was a town-home; but the view was amazing, the accommodations were luxurious, the food was gourmet quality and the host was both knowledgable and attentive.

The Innkeeper is very knowledgeable about local and state history. He's wonderful to talk to. The food was very yummy and accommodations quaint. We stayed in the Pocahontas room for our wedding anniversary with alot of historical photos and such.

We spent 3 nights with Bill at his bed & breakfast. He is a very entertaining host and great chef. We stayed in the Presidential Room with a balcony overlooking the York River, what a great view! We got to watch the USS Cole going through the Coleman bridge and Bill provided us lots of great information. There are antiques...

I stayed two nights and enjoyed it immensely. The room was comfortable and quiet and there is a big room downstairs which is great for reading. Parking is more than adequate and the place is within easy walking distance of everything in Yorktown. Bill, the host, is a gold mine of information about all things Yorktown and Virginia. Breakfasts were...

This a great B&B. We stayed in the President's suite and it had everything you could ask for and was nicely decorated without going over board. A very comfortable room and the balcony was a plus not to mention a great view of the river. Bill is a great host and an excellent cook. What a breakfast. You have plenty...

Stayed at the York River B and B for the third time , best time ever. What a great weekend in Yorktown, cant say enough about great things about our stay. Always great food, great room, and Bill is always very so fun to talk to, and has great stories. We love Yorktown and would not stay any where else.

We stayed only one night and immediately regretted it wasn't for longer. We had the Washington Suite which was very spacious and beautifully furnished. The bed was so comfortable and the bed linen was to die for. Bill, the innkeeper, was a fountain of knowledge and there wasn't much he didn't know about Yorktown and the surrounding areas and it's...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The York River Inn Bed & Breakfast is situated on a high bluff overlooking the York River in a colonial-style building. It is the only waterfront bed and breakfast in the Yorktown and Colonial Williamsburg area. The York River Inn Bed & Breakfast is the ideal location for a relaxing visit in historic Yorktown, Virginia. The York River Inn B & B is also a delightful place to enjoy the historic areas of Yorktown and Williamsburg. Gracious settings, generous amenities, and knowledgeable host create a memorable experience rather than just a night away from home. All three guestrooms are filled with standard amenities enhanced by many charming and useful additions--the innkeeper's extensive travel and hospitality career have contributed to his skill at providing the finest accommodations possible. The common area includes a sofa and comfortable chairs, where you can browse through piles of current magazines. The refrigerator is fully stocked for guests. The innkeeper has a vast selection of Virginia books, maps and extensive materials on travel from all over the US and the world. You are welcome to enjoy the shared deck with deck chairs, as well as the cookies and treats always set out on the dining room table. A gourmet breakfast served in the elegant antiques-filled dining area overlooking the river is a highlight of the experience provided at the York River Inn. The Inn is only a short distance from the colonial area and other attractions of Yorktown and is only 15 minutes from Colonial Williamsburg by the way of the scenic Colonial Parkway. The local area is filled with historic, cultural, and entertainment activities without the stress of a busy crowded town. In Yorktown itself are two major historical attractions celebrating the winning of American independence October 19,1781 when George Washington accepted the surrender of the British under Lord Cornwallis, an event commemorated by the 1881 victory monument just down river from the York River Inn. ... more   less
