The Resort is close to all the best Virginia offers, with colonial Williamsburg just down the road and attraction hotspots like Busch Gardens, Yorktown, and Jamestown all under 20 minutes away.
Williamsburg is a living relic of the American colonial era and the Resort has its own piece of fascinating history located right on-site- the restored Manor House (circa 1735), which offers both informational walk-throughs and thrilling ghost tours!

The Resort offers not only spacious, sumptuous rooms, but also a steaming sauna and acres upon acres of ponds, lakes, forest, gardens, trails, and sprawling oak trees. Relax lakeside as the kids try to reel in a bite to eat, set out for a day of BBQ and picnics, or visit one of the many rich historic sites nearby and re-experience the birth of a nation.

Sports & Adventure Activities
We were only there for about 9 hours but this resort left a GREAT first impression on us. We will be back.
Very pleased. Lots of activities for families or for couples. Rooms were great as well. Will definitely come back
Really nice condo, great experience
The resort is beautiful and has a lot of amenities. This is a timeshare, so there is an optional presentation offered. We really enjoyed Colonial Williamsburg and would love to return to the area!
Excellent property on very good site
The property was spacious, very clean and the site was beautiful and secure. Site facilities were excellent
Just what we needed
We needed a good bargain for two adults and 6 kids. With two bathrooms and two bedrooms (One twin, one king), plus a pull out, this place was perfect. It is a very easy 15 minute or so drive from Busch Gardens. We did not get to experience any resort amenities because we arrived late and left early. Only negative was the bathtub - no shower - in the master bath. We could have used another shower.
Property was beautiful and the amenities were great. However there was only one shower and that should have been mentioned in the property description. The place was clean, however the bathrooms could have been cleaner and there was also a musty smell in our unit.
