Your Alternative to Williamsburg Hotel Lodging!

Room Rates at our fine Williamsburg Bed and Breakfast include breakfast, afternoon sweets and wine…our rates are based on two person occupancy and they are subject to change without notice.
Arrival Time:
Check in time is between 3-6pm. We certainly know that life sometimes doesn’t allow you get here at that time so we can accommodate a late arrival as long as you arrange it in advance. Please understand, we are a small Inn and we do require a small amount of sleep to function, so we require a late check in to be prearranged. Just let us know what time you will arrive and we can arrange your late check in. Please understand we are unable to accommodate any early check-ins due to housekeeping and errands. If we are unable to be at the Inn to check you in we will leave an envelope with your keys and directions to your room in the dignitaries box at the front door!
Parking:
The luxury Williamsburg lodging of our B&B is located on a large lot and allows for ample off street free parking right in the front of the Inn. You don’t have to worry about finding a spot, there is one saved for each of our guests. We have reserved one spot for each room so if you are traveling with more than one vehicle, please let us know in advance!
Departure Time:
Check out time is 11am. We certainly appreciate you respecting this time as it allows us time to get your room ready for the next guest.
Minimum Night Stays:
We do require multi-night stays during weekends and certain times of the year. It is best to call us if you are looking for a single night’s stay.

Cancellation Policy:
Once your deposit is received, be assured your Willliamsburg lodging accommodations will be ready and awaiting your arrival. It also insures the White House staff that the room(s) are sold on the dates specified. As we are a small Inn and our rooms are limited, cancellations obviously adversely affect us. When a last minute cancellation occurs, it affords us little chance of re-selling the space. Should situations arise requiring a change or a cancellation in your reservation, we of course sympathize…but must maintain a business policy and stand by our cancellation requirements.

A One night Deposit is required to confirm a reservation at our Williamsburg lodging for a stay less than 2 nights. Should your stay be longer than 2 nights, 50% of your total balance will be required for a deposit.. Balance is due on arrival.

A change or cancellation of a confirmed reservation more than 30 days in advance will result in our refunding your deposit, less $25 administration fee.

Cancellation of a confirmed reservation inside 30 days of the scheduled arrival date will result in no refund being given (regardless of the reason for non-arrival or early departure.) and you will be charged the total amount due. Should we be able to rebook your entire stay, you will receive a room credit for a future stay.

For Weather Related Cancellation Questions,
our policy is, if the roads in our area are open, we are open, and if we are open, our policy applies.
Please note:
There are no exceptions to our cancellation policy, if you are concerned, please looking into travel insurance. One such company is Travel Guard.
Multiple Room Bookings:
All multiple room bookings are final sales. Any changes or cancellations for any reason, at any time after booking, will result in the total amount charged.

All bookings of the entire Inn will require full payment in advance by personal check only. All Entire Inn rentals are non refundable for ANY reason.

Holidays & Special Events:
All Special Events such as Grand Illuminations weekend, Valentines, W&M Move in Weekend, Parents Weekend, Graduation, College Move in Weekend and Homecoming, as well as all Holidays are non-refundable. A 50% deposit is required to secure the reservation. Gift Cards or Discount Cards are not applicable during these times. Once your reservation has been placed and confirmed, should you need to change or cancel your reservation, for any reason, you will be responsible for the entire balance due.

We understand that unexpected events can occur, and will work with you as much as possible but please understand we are a small Inn and last minute cancellations adversely affect us.

Lovely stay!

“We spent 2 days at A White House in Williamsburg, VA, with our daughter’s in-laws. John and Debbie are excellent hosts; the accommodations were cozy and spotless; the breakfast was delicious; recommendations for local restaurants were spot-on. We had a very pleasant visit, and we can assure others that they will have a similar experience.”

Fred L.

Comfortable, fun and interesting

“We stayed in the Lincoln Suite a couple of days ago and had a wonderful experience. The room was spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable. The historic nature of the house and the presidential touches are both enjoyable and fun for anyone with a sense of humor. Breakfast was excellent and served in the beautiful dining room. We enjoyed a fascinating conversation with our host John and the other guests. Unfortunately we only stayed for one night but will definitely return. Highly recommend.”

Deborah B.

Great stay

“What a perfect weekend in a lovely home with outstanding breakfast every morning and inviting conversation with the hosts and guests. Our hosts were welcoming and we especially appreciated their sense of humor. We stayed in the Washington room and loved the setup. We were also able to walk to the colonial area with ease.”

Fabulous location

“Spotlessly clean and well maintained, superb breakfast. Debbie snd John are friendly and helpful. Would highly recommend. Situated a short walk from the main areas and restaurants. Johns map is very helpful.”

Gary Tootell

Delightful

“We had a wonderful time at A Williamsburg White House. Five nights, a different yummy breakfast each morning. John and Debbie are excellent hosts, and went out of their way to make our stay pleasant. They happily accommodated my wife’s gluten-free dietary requirement. We stayed in the Washington suite, which provided a comfortable bed and a spacious sitting area. Downstairs was a nice place to connect with other guests. John was very helpful with suggestions on what to do in the area. We will visit again.”
