A stay at the Colonial Houses is like stepping back in time. The hotel is made up of 26 homes from the 18th century within the living-history museum Colonial Williamsburg. Once used as kitchens, shops and brick houses, the converted buildings are decorated with period furnishings and include rooms with one or two beds, all with private bathrooms. Modern amenities like coffeemakers and televisions are included, and each room has space for a small seating area; many also have canopy beds and fireplaces.

As part of the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, the hotel offers exclusive perks to enhance a visit to the Revolutionary City. All reservations in the landmark lodgings include free shuttle service around town, on-site parking, Wi-Fi, two-hour bike rentals and use of the tennis courts. The property has three pools, two outdoor and one indoor, a spa and a fitness center with complimentary classes. Guests receive discounted tickets, retail purchases and evening programs. Tavern rooms are located off of Duke of Gloucester in the heart of Historical Colonial Williamsburg. 

Dining options in Colonial Williamsburg include four historical tavern restaurants, all within walking distance. To taste a bit of the past, reserve a table at George Washington’s favorite tavern, sample colonial snacks at the apothecary, or pick up homemade cookies at the bakery. Picky eaters can fill up on familiar favorites like burgers, pizza and handcrafted cocktails with casual and upscale options.

We were able to start a fire in our room and fell asleep by it! The hidden bathroom was also cool.

Loved the ambience and location right in the historic area. We chose an entire building (rather than just one room), which came with two bedrooms, a bathroom, and a sitting room with a fireplace. We called over to the Inn and housekeeping sent a gentleman to start a fire for us. We love colonial history and stay in the colonial houses whenever we can to add to the experience of stepping back into history.
