As we were planning our trip to Williamsburg, we initially wanted to stay in one of the hotels or B&Bs on the Williamsburg property. I somehow came upon this bed and breakfast in Yorktown, which is a short, beautiful drive to Williamsburg. We just returned from a long weekend at the Hornsby House, and could not be more pleased with...

The Hornsby House is a beautiful family home located right across the street from the Yorktown monument and just a short walk to the waterfront restaurants. We had a fabulous stay here....comfortable bed, fireplace in the room and a delicious breakfast. David Bowditch and his brother have done an outstanding job with their B & B.
