These buildings are only a small part of the 500 plus structures in the town, and the experience of staying in Colonial Williamsburg is unlike anything else in the world.

Within these colonial houses and buildings, guests can see the spots frequented by such historical figures as Thomas Jefferson and Patrick Henry, as well as buildings once owned by President John Tyler. This historic lodging offers more than a place to stay, but also a true historical experience.
For people who choose to visit these colonial houses, there is no doubt that the stay is the experience of a lifetime. Few opportunities in life give us the chance to experience the world as it was for our forefathers, yet that is exactly what this historic lodging provides.
Colonial Williamsburg is absolutely something that everyone should take time to explore and experience at least once in their lives.
