Lovely venue in a beautiful village. Bill who runs the place is an wealth of information on the region. The room we stayed in (the George Washington Room) was the largest B&B room we've stayed in and is lovely and well appointed. Bill made a delicious breakfast and joined us and the other guests and was a delightful host. Will... More

Innkeeper, William W. Cole, is the epitome of a gracious, knowledgeable host. Welcomed personally from the time we drove up the drive until we reluctantly left, his hospitality was always present. Our room was most comfortable with great views of the York River. Being a foodaholic, we found his breakfast presentation and content to be beyond reproach. Can't wait to... More

Enjoyed the Pocahontas Room this visit after staying in the Washington Room previously. All the rooms in this B&B are wonderfully decorated with historic photos, maps, books and curios that bring the namesake to life. The beds are comfortable, the terry robes luxurious, the amenities more plentiful than at a best-rated hotel. Bill's breakfasts are varied and scrumptious -- many... More

This was a great place to stop for the night. The view from the Presidents' room was amazing - overlooking the York River and the bridge (which at night is lit up).

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.

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
