History : Built in 1927 during the height of the reconstruction of Colonial Williamsburg the Williamsburg Manor was orginially designed to house professors from the College of William & Mary. The sits prominently on Richmond Road. Just a mere stones throw from the College and only steps from the historic area shi is central to all there is to do in the area. With ample onsite parking, one can chose to stroll leisurely and safely through the downtown areas.
For a time our old girl served as lodge for travelers, a private home that welcomed students, and at one point even housed soldiers and their families. She was purchased by us in 1992 and began our lives chaper together. We believe she is enjoying this chapter of her life the best. She has seen numerous weddings, honeymoons, family reunions and hosted thousands of couples just getting away or visiting the area.
Restored: We can't in good conscience say we have restored her, as she looks a lot different than she did in 1927, but we have brought her into a more recent age and made her as comfortable, inviting, and hospitable as possible. She is still a work in progress,. Green grass and lush gardens soften the edges of our city scape and afford our guests the option of being in the thick of things or withdraw to the peace and solitude she can offer.
The Manor features updated comforts of home. All of the guest rooms feature 32' flat panel televisions, Ipod docking stations, Wi Fi, and great bedding. The Living Room features a gas fireplace, adjoing 'office' with an internet ready computer & printer, and plenty of comfortable sitting spaces.
Bed & Breakfast: Although the Manor spends a lot of her days as a traditional bed & breakfast, her first love is families and related groups. The house take on a different personality and is truely a home away from home. Slide the couch back, order pizza in, and stay up all night playing games or just talking. The Manor fills the soul. The hosue and her packages can be customized to fit each guest's individual needs. We are also pet friendly to well maintained animals. Whether you stay as a B&B guest or a whole house booking our guests enjoy all the comforts of the B&B, Great Breakfast, Daily Housekeeping and Concierge Services
As we also own our areas largest catering company, food is a large part of our being. A bountiful breakfast, is served each morning. best described as 'Regional Southern', we gather ingredients and snips from our kitchen garden to create a proper fare that should hold one well through lunch. Snacks and bevies are also available through out the day for grazing.
We have 12 friends here to spend the weekends. I am kind of local here(a student here), my friends come to visite me for 3 days. This place is really nice, more like a home. Everything you can think of for living can be found here. This is a big house suitable for a big get-together, it has 2 big living room for us to play, and one has a really long table for board-games. A nice place!
We just got back from visiting Williamsburg and staying at the Williamsburg Manor for a week was a highlight of the trip. Having the whole house for our family to use was comforable and relaxing, especially in late afternoon and evenings when we seem to regroup in the livingroom area. There were 9 adults and the 6 bedroom accommadations worked very well for us. The house was built in the 1920's so the bathrooms are not large but we found them to be very adequate.The breakfast each morning was great and the staff were very gracious.The Manor's location is a plus because some of the group elected to walk to Merchants Square and/or Colonial Williamsburg on seneral occasions. I would also like to say Laura is great host and she and her staff helped to make our stay a very enjoyable family vacation.
