We chose to stay at the Hornsby House Inn because it looked attractive and is conveniently situated for short drives to all the historical sites nearby. Upon our arrival we knew we had made the right choice. The house is as charming as we had hoped and David and Philip warmly greeted us with wine and cheese and crackers on...

We booked this place rather than a hotel and it's just like going to a rather rich grandparent's place in the sense of the antiques and structure of the house. It still seems like an old family home but with a few modern amenities like separate bathrooms for each guest room, self controlled AC units in each room. they had...

Our 3 night stay was both very comfortable and enjoyable. The house / home is delightful with tremendous character and well appointed guest rooms. We enjoyed the breakfasts and wine & cheese along with the social time with other guests. Definitely a return destination for future trips to the Historic Triangle of Virginia.

We booked Hornsby House based on previous reviews and were not disappointed. We stayed in the Magnolia Room which was spacious and comfortable. Dave, the owner, is very knowledgeable about the area, having grown up in the house which was apparently extensively renovated several years ago. It is conveniently located directly across the street from the Victory Monument and is...

I have spent about 2 weeks within the last 2 years at the Hornsby House and this is the best place I have travelled to and stayed in the United States. The breakfast is absolutely fabulous, I couldn't make it better myself and the House itself is so charming and beautiful inside and out! To top off your stay, Dave...

What a perfect weekend visit to historic Yorktown... and The Hornsby House Inn made it all the more enjoyable. The hosts Phil and Sarah were over-the-top accommodating to our every want and need.

Beautiful older home right in the middle of the historic village of York Town. Charming hosts with stories of the area and suggestions. Breakfast was superb. Highly recommend. We stayed in the River Room, overlooking street and York Town memorial.
