Sprinkled throughout the Historic Area are 26 colonial homes that guests book and stay in overnight just as you would a standard hotel room. The Colonial Houses come in several sizes and the windows gaze onto courtyards, gardens, or the Duke of Gloucester Street. Some Colonial Houses boast fireplaces and charming canopy beds. A stay at one of these sweet homes gives you total access to the amazing amenities that the Williamsburg Inn and Williamsburg Lodge enjoy including the impressive fitness center, the spa and the three resort-style pools and whirlpool.

I just spent seven days experiencing the past in Colonial Williamsburg. I recommend it highly. All the interpreters do an excellent job of bringing history to life. I especially enjoyed learning more about how working people lived, not just the upper classes as its usually the case. It's not the constant noise and activity of a Disney theme park. You need to slow doiwn and really get into the experience.
We stayed in a beautiful historic house in the historic area of CW. We were more than delighted with the house. It was elegantly furnished, the bedrooms were spacious, and the bathrooms modern. The location was good because it was very near the Williamsburg Lodge which is where the activities were located.
