A Winter Wonderland!

A Romantic Winter Getaway in Williamsburg, Va.

As the colder weather approaches, and the holidays are right around the corner, why not start to think about an after holiday getaway. January and February are beautiful in Williamsburg. The crowds are gone, the school trip groups are non existent and the town echoes peace and serenity. Colonial Williamsburg is open 365 days a year and you can still enjoy a delicious dinner at a
Colonial Tavern. Special discount tickets are usually offered for Winter dates toward the end of the year so watch the Colonial Williamsburg website for any specials. We offer winter rates for our guests yet they still enjoy all the amenities that the Inn offers. Jamestown and Yorktown are also open and offer winter tours.

Our Fireplaces are roaring in the winter, the down comforters are on the beds and a full breakfast is ready every morning. Come and enjoy a romantic winter getaway in Williamsburg after the holidays!

Happy Mothers Day!

Wondering what to do for Mothers Day?

Does your Mom need a much needed vacation?

Williamsburg is a wonderful place to send your Mom for a relaxing time with lots of pampering. If you mom enjoys the pampering of a spa day, there are several spas in the area to make her feel like a Queen. Maybe a round of golf at one of Williamsburg’s premiere golf courses. Shopping is always a favorite of moms and whether she enjoys small boutique shops or large outlet malls we can offer both, some within walking distance!

Of course lets not forget to feed mom…Great fine dining right down the street at the Fat Canary or a Colonial Tavern for some authentic Colonial Food and Fare.

Stay the night at a lovely bed and breakfast where she can enjoy a full breakfast in the morning and a relaxing afternoon just reading a good book in the garden. If Mom cannot get away on Mothers Day, just order her a gift certificate and she can visit when it is convenient for her.

To all of our Mothers out there, have a safe, happy and healthy Mothers Day from A Williamsburg White House Inn!

How to spend your visit in Williamsburg

March 29th, 2011 by debbiekeane

Williamsburg offers a variety of “things” to do.

How you decide what to do depends on the time you have to spend in our town. There is Colonial Williamsburg with its historic homes, buildings and programs which you can easily spend at least 2 full days doing. Then there is Jamestown Settlement with its “state of the art” museum,  3 ships you can tour, the Fort and the Indian Village. Behind the Settlement, you will find the actual Jamestown Island where the archaeological dig is going on as well as a wonderful archearium to tour.  A short drive down Colonial Parkway will bring you to Yorktown Battlefield, Yorktown Victory Center and the Yorktown Riverwalk.

Of course if history is not your interest, Busch Gardens and Water Country is less than 5 miles down the road. Maybe you prefer to golf, have a spa day or shop in over 150 premium outlet stores? Finally, stop at the Winery for your tour and stock up on wine for your cellar!

I haven’t even mentioned the fine restaurants that Williamsburg has to offer or the wonderful shops in Merchant Square.

Maybe just a day relaxing at the Inn, playing some chess, reading a book? Enjoying afternoon wines and snack.

Whatever you trip entails, we can help you plan your itineray when you stay with us, just ask!
