I've been staying at the Colonial Houses for over 30 years and have always found it a superb experience, far and away one of the best travel experiences ever. No need to drive, everything is in easy walking distance or accessible by the excellent bus system. Tremendously relaxing!

Staying in the colonial houses is really a wonderful, one of a kind experience. It's really very neat to stay in one of these historical houses and get a better feel for what the colonial era was like. Kids who've been studing colonial times in school just absolutely love it. If you get lucky, you'll also get a house with a little yard and/or garden, which is just lovely. We got the first floor of the George Jackson house. It's a little to one end of the historical district, so not convenient to stuff by the Palace and Merchant's Square, but terrifically convenient for stuff at the Capitol and Christiana Campbell's Tavern. The suite had a lovely bedroom, small sitting room with a sofa bed, and a tiny tiny bathroom. Also had access to a larger parlor across the hall. Little noisy being right on Francis Street. But wonderful colonial atmosphere. The downsides? The buildings are kind of old and musty. Our daughter, who is quite allergic to dust, got a couple of bad nosebleeds and we had to cut our visit short. The bathroom is tiny and old. But, I think you have to stay in these colonial houses once. It's a lovely experience. (BTW, the staff at the Inn couldn't have been nicer and more helpful in arranging our itinerary and activities, and couldn't have been more accomodating when we decided to cut the visit short and head home early after the second bad nosebleed).

My daughter attended the Teacher's Institute and stayed in Brick House Tavern for the first 7 days while I stayed at Governor's Inn. Both places were nice.....but the Best part of the trip was staying at Market Square Tavern for the last 2 nights of our trip. We had an upstairs room facing Chowning's Tavern (which happens to be our favorite)! We had a queen size canopy bed which was very comfortable. The room was huge, with a large walk-in closet. Downstairs was a large communal room that looked like a library with large leather chairs, bookcases, and a beautiful fireplace. The Market Square Tavern was absolutely beautiful and worth every penny.....in fact we are thinking about staying there again during the holidays. I wholly recommend spending the extra dollars to experience staying there!

Our family (mom, dad, and 2 teens -15 yr old and 17 yr old) stayed in the George Jackson House. The property is located next to Christina Campbell's Restaurant. The Colonial Williamsburg Shuttle stops in front of the house, we didn't use it as we found everything within walking distance. We had the lower level of the house which included a sitting room with sofa bed and large bedroom with canopy queen bed. While we were there, temperatures in Williamsburg soared to 100 degrees. Thankfully, our rooms were nice and cool (which my husband loved - the kids and I wished we had brought sweatshirts!) It was so convenient to come back to the house during the day and "chill". We attended the late activities, therefore a short walk back to the house was great. It's very close to the Capital House of Burgess - the location of several evening shows. This house would be fabulous for 2 families - up to 8 people. There is a common kitchen and dining/game room on the first floor. We would love to come back in fall! The only con - the bathroom - - slow drains, dripping faucets. Nevertheless, we were very happy with our accommodations and would stay here again. Yes, you can definitely find cheaper rates at the lodge - but this was a neat experience.

My 10 year old son and I recently took a 3 day trip to Williamsburg and treated ourselves to the Colonial Houses! We were both awed at how pretty everything was. The room (with a wood burning fire place for use in the winter) was HUGE, beautifully decorated and clean, clean, clean!! I didn't think it could get better when I rounded the corner into the bathroom but ... WOW! Everything looked brand new and was spotless!! Very, very pleased! We ordered dessert room service one night and even though it was just after regular room service hours, they kindly and promptly delivered us our dessert. The concierge was wonderful. The bellmen were very helpful with driving directions, the staff at both restaurants we ate in were all so nice. We didn't want to leave! Would HIGHLY recommend any of these houses for a bit of a splurge. My son can't wait to go back!
