This was a beautiful Inn in a great location. Williamsburg is a beautiful town with so much to see and do. We were sorry we were only able to stay for 1 night and hope to be able to return again soon. Our room was lovely and the breakfast was great.

My stay at the Fife & Drum Inn made my first trip back to Williamsburg since 1973 that much more special! It was nice having the amenities of a modern hotel while always feeling you were back in Colonial America! There is no substitute for waking up in a nice Inn with breakfast ready for you just down the hall,... More

We just stayed as a family at the Drummers Cottage and it was a great family vacation. I only wished we had stayed longer. The cottage was perfect for family of 4 and the boys enjoyed sitting on the front steps probably more than inside.
