The Aldrich House was the perfect place for a weekend early anniversary getaway that was still close to home. The house is immaculately clean, beautifully decorated and furnished and makes for a warm, inviting atmosphere. We stayed in the Lewis Room. It was cozy and comfortable. Breakfast was delicious and filling both mornings. The owners are super friendly and helpful.
We had a nice couple of days in Williamsburg. This B&B is a 20 minute walk from Colonial Williamsburg and right across the street from William and Mary. Ike, the innkeeper, greeted us and made us feel welcome. He even provided some nice extras to help us celebrate our anniversary. Breakfast was WAY more than we could eat and the chef Karen made it taste quite good. The room, while clean and spacious, was really warm, dark and creaky. I think the B&B could use a little updating, but I would most likely stay there again if we return to Williamsburg in the near future. It's a good deal for the money.
A very charming Inn with an even more charming staff willing to engage in stimulating conversations. A feel good place. Enjoyed the five day stay and would stay again. Kudo's Cedars of Williamsburg!
My husband and I recently stayed at the Cedars. It was the perfect location for visiting Jamestown, Yorktown, and Colonial Williamsburg, as well as a few restaurants, which are minutes from this B & B. The Cedars is across from William & Mary college, but there wasn't any loudness from students walking around outside, even though there are a lot of people walking and riding their bikes on Jamestown Road and around the area. We stayed in the George Washington room, which is incredibly comfortable, and spacious! It was also located at the front of the house facing the street, but I'm happy to say that we never had any problems hearing street noises. We had a beautiful queen size bed, an armoir to hang and store clothes, two table nightstands and a few other pieces, in addition to an extra room which held a single day bed and two sitting chairs. The bathroom was very small, but it was impeccably clean! With the bathroom being so small, I really appreciate that they had a shower caddy in the small stall shower, and three tiered glass toiletry shelves over the towels to keep your toiletries out and easily accessible. Dee Dee, the housekeeper is fantastic! We stayed at the Cedars for two nights, and on the second day, Dee Dee cleaned our room all over again from when we first checked in. The amount of care that she puts into little touches of comfort and cleanliness is why we can't wait to come back! She and the rest of the staff go out of their way to make you feel at home. This is why we choose to stay at the Cedars rather than a commercial hotel. We felt like a guest in someone's home, and we couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. And the prices are very reasonable. They may be a little more than your average hotel, but you're getting better service for your money. We will be coming back to the Cedars every time we come to Williamsburg. This is a great location, and a wonderful place to call home for your vacation.
When we travel we always stay at B&Bs and I would rate Williamsburg Sampler one of the best! Ike is a most gracious and charming host. It is evident he enjoys people and loves his home. The staff of Laurie and Karen were most warm and friendly and presented a fantastic breakfast which carried us through until dinner each day. The B&B is a short walk from the historic district. Ike and the staff were always available to answer questions and provide interesting conversation. We left Williamsburg with warm and happy memories of our stay.
You can pay more, but you won't get more value for your dollar at any other B&B in Williamsburg, than the Aldrich House. The location is perfect for Colonial Williamsburg, just a 10 minute walk away. The accommodations and amenities are first class. The warmth and professionalism of Tom and Sue are as good as it gets.You won't regret selecting the Aldrich House for your stay.
Had a wonderful stay while dropping our daughter at W&M grad school. Alex and his family were so accommodating and led us to great dining for dinner. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful. And the conversation with other guests was a learning experience itself. Look forward to our next visit.
I walked through the rooms in the house, while Dee Dee, the incredibly vivacious and warm housekeeper was cleaning. They are marvelous. The bottom room in the cottage is also very nice. We got the least attractive room, top of the cottage room, which had some small issues that Alex is addressing. Alex is witty and charming. He will keep you entertained during breakfast, if you choose to engage him. Otherwise sensitive to know you are enjoying a meditative morning and give you space. The other thing Alex is is flexible. So if you have any out of the box requests, He'll entertain them.
Lovely B&B. Easy walking distance to the historic district. We visited several days during a July heat wave. The house was kept nice and cool. The convenient location allowed our family to walk back and take a break during the heat of the afternoon before heading back out for the evening. Tom and Sue are lovely people. Very friendly to talk with. Helpful but not intrusive. Tom makes a great hearty breakfast to get your day started. Highly recommend. We plan to return. Thank you Tom and Sue!!
This is a wonderful place to stay when visiting Williamsburg. The owners are friendly, the breakfast is gourmet yummy and the Inn Keeper goes above and beyond to assure a pleasant stay.
I planned a surprise birthday getaway for my fiance. I made an online reservation & choose to add a cheese plate upon arrival for our room. We arrived at the Inn around 4:00 & were greeted as we got out of our car. Our bags were brought up to our room & after we checked in we got a tour. Our room was very welcoming. Nice linens, a mini fridge, coffee machine coffee cups & bottled water. Our fruit & cheese board was great, 2 types of crackers, 3 kinds of cheeses, grapes & strawberries & goat cheese stuffed figs. I highly suggest adding it when you make your reservation to hold you over for dinner at one of Mathews many restaurants. We went to The White Dog Bistro as did 2 other couples that were staying at the Inn. We swam in the wonderful pool that is available with pool towels provided. While David was getting a massage in Mathews, I read a book I picked out from their library under one of the many pin oaks that are on the property. While I was reading another couple staying at the Inn were fishing off the dock-fishing gear provided by the Inn-were having a good time & catching fish after fish. There is also boccie ball, croquet & horseshoes to pass the time as well as a canoe & bikes. There is a fire pit that is stocked with wood & ready to light as well as long marshmallow sticks & all you need for smores! Now to my favorite part the breakfasts!!! Yummy! Greg & Lori are amazing-they use veggies from their garden, crab from their creek, local coffee, & local fruit when available. Both days everyone was going up for seconds! We also got to witness an early morning wedding, & meet some wonderful people. Well all I can say is I can't wait until our next visit! Thank you for great memories!
This was my first time staying at a B & B and it was very nice. We felt comfortable the entire time. Tom and Sue are very welcoming and The breakfast was amazing. My husband and I enjoyed our stay very much.
Such a special place. I received a warm welcome from the owners and staff. And then had such a great time kayaking in the creek and river, dipping in the salt water pool, biking to the beach, exploring the nearby town, and luxuriating in my lovely room. Highly recommended!
