A stay here seems particularly moving at night, when the town's historic area is quiet and you have Williamsburg pretty much to yourself. Five of the 25 homes and three lodging taverns are 18th-century structures; the others have been rebuilt on their original foundations. Antiques and period reproductions furnish the rooms, and the costumed staff reinforces the historical air. Modern amenities include hair dryers, irons, ironing boards, coffeemakers, and a complimentary
fruit basket and bottle of wine. The Colonial Houses share the facilities of the adjacent Williamsburg Inn and the Lodge.

We chose Colonial Houses after cancelling Williamsburg Sampler B&B due to a horrible booking experience. It proved to be a blessing in disguise. We had a very charming and spacy room in one of the old 18 th century houses on Duke of Gloucester St. The staff was also very nice and helpful. A truly memorable stay spiced up by seeing the Queen of England in the lobby of the nearby Williamsburg Inn after having breakfast there.

My husband and I stayed at the Brick House Tavern for two nights in April. We were at first impressed by the beautiful Williamsburg Inn, which is where you check in. Service was great but then we went to our room. Although it's great to be in the middle of the historic village (on Duke of Gloucester St.) the actual room wasn't great. It was very small and the bathroom was like a hospital bathroom, yuck. We were so glad to go the Williamsburg
Inn for breakfast each morning (included in our package) for a bit of luxury... our room at the tavern was just sort of dingy! If we go again, we will splurge and stay at the Williamsburg Inn.

My wife and I spent several days at the Colonial Houses during off-season (early January). Thus, the cost was quite reasonable. The houses are decorated in a charming manner, and the location (right in the midst of the historic area) can't be beat. Additionally, the room service and other services are provided in conjunction with the prestigious Williamsburg Inn. We can't imagine staying anywhere other than the Colonial Houses on future trips to
