Historical Traveler Reviews Legacy of Williamsburg Bed and Breakfast
Fun, Warm and Welcoming
Our visit to Williamsburg for the LPGA golf tournament was made fabulous due to the warmth of the hosts at the Legacy of Williamsburg. Our suite was beautiful and we particularly enjoyed the deck off the sitting room which overlooked the back yard and gazebo. Breakfast was great and we were able to meet and vist with new friends and the hosts.
THE place to stay for a colonial experience
Art and Joan Ricker have truly created the ultimate B&B experience. From the period furnishings to the scrumptous breakfasts served in a tavern setting, the Legacy B&B is definitely the place to stay.
We have stayed in a lot of B&Bs and can tell you that Art and Joan are better suited to run a B&B than anyone we've ever seen.
Treat yourself next time you are visiting Williamsburg. You won't be sorry!

Elegant and comfortable
We have stayed at the Legacy twice--just before William and Mary's graduation in May 2004 and over New Year's this month. Both visits have been exceptional. Our hosts, Joan and Art, gave us great advice about the sights and opportunities of Williamsburg. They are very genuine people and made us feel right at home. Joan is an exceptional cook and baker, and the breakfast was wonderful (the evening snacks were great, too!). Art is a skilled host. We stayed in the least expensive room and lacked for nothing. The bed was very comfortable; the room was quiet.
We like to walk for fitness, and it's a perfect walking distance from Williamsburg's attractions (one mile?), and it's just across the street from William and Mary's lovely campus.
We are booked for New Year's 2006!
Great Hospitality in Colonial Williamsburg
The Innkeepers (Art & Joan) are experienced B&B operators, and their hospitality is unmatched in this reviewer's opinion. The Legacy of Williamsburg provides everything a fine Colonial B&B should: great rooms, thoughtful accommodations, and --of course-- a fabulous breakfast! (If you're undecided about where to stay in Williamsburg, give this B&B a try: Joan's breakfast is worth the price of admission!)
A Wonderful B&B
This is a beautifully furnished bed & breakfast. My wife and I stayed there in September of 2004 and had a romantic celebration of our anniversary. Joan and Art provided delicious breakfasts and helpful information about Williamsburg and the surrounding area. We enjoyed walking to Colonial Williamsburg and eating in the restaurants that Joan and Art recommended.
We heartily recommend The Legacy as a first-class bed & breakfast. You will truly enjoy your stay.
Wonderful food, great rooms
We had a wonderful weekend. Joan and Art have furnished the rooms with colonial furniture, comfortable beds and beautiful linens. Some rooms even have fireplaces. Breakfast is delicious and served in a pretty room overlooking a lovely garden. We highly recommend The Legacy of Williamsburg to others and hope to return someday ourselves.
We found this lovely bed and breakfast Inn by chance on the internet. The owners Art and Joan were very welcoming, taking care of dinner reservations even before our arrival, and offering to make any other reservations we might need during our stay. The Inn is within easy reach of Historic Williamsburg, walking or by car. Stepping into this very charming house you feel like you are being transported back in time, with soft music playing and candle light in every window. The house is spotless, decorated beautifully in 18th Century style with four poster canopy beds, winged chairs and window shutters, while still enjoying the comforts of the 21st Century, running water, air conditioning etc. We enjoyed games of darts in the Tavern Room where you can also play billiards and cards, and afternoon tea in the Keeping Room, this is also where Joan served her wonderful full breakfasts. The Legasy of Williamsburg is a place we would like to return to, and will recommend to our friends. Thank you Joan and Art, you gave us a 25th anniversary to remember.
Loved The Legacy of Williamsburg B&B
My mother & I traveled to Williamburg for a wedding of a friend. On August 29 & 30th, we stayed in the Legacy Suite at The Legacy of Williamsburg B&B. It was in walking distance of The College of William & Mary, Merchants Square, and Colonial Williamburg. Our hosts were very attentive and welcoming, and there were so many special touches, such as the delicious breakfasts and the evening tea and cookies that made this stay even more special! We wished we had stayed the entire week here instead of just two days!
Enchanting bed and breakfast in heart of Williamsburg
My husband and I enjoyed our stay at The Legacy of Williamsburg very much. We felt like we were taken back in time to the Williamsburg era. The rooms are large and inviting. The food and service was excellent. The innkeepers were a joy to talk with and we will definitely go back again. The location was excellent with just a nice short walk to the colonial era. A true getaway!!!
The Legacy Met All Expectations
We recently visited The Legacy of Williamsburg Bed and Breakfast and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It was easy to find, and is in a beautiful location. Our hosts, the Rickers, made our stay completely enjoyable. We felt we were taken back to a more relaxed time frame, surrounded by the lovely Colonial decor. The food was wonderful, the room was quiet and comfortable, and we left feeling refreshed by our stay. We certainly plan to go back again!

- Spent the day walking around Colonial Williamsburg and hanging out in a couple of local coffee shops.... great vibe here!
- Crossed the Chesapeake "River Tunnel" on the way to Maryland. It's a consecutive series of 3 bridges & 2 tunnels back-to-back that spans over 20 miles from Virginia to Maryland - very cool drive (see pictures).

... glassblowers who work here (there are only six of them) have to take FOUR years of training in order to perfect their skills. You can imagine the quality of the items that they produce, which are available for purchase to support the historic site.

While we were waiting for the film to start, an older couple came up and sat on the end of the bench Beth and I were on. We said hello and they introduced themselves as being from Memphis in Tenessee. The older lady, being ...

Also toured the David Wills home where President Lincoln stayed and wrote the Gettysburg address that he read at the dedication of the Gettysburg National Cemetery.

The first song was a gathering circle song. The entire group in the program made a circle and we became a family for the night. We learned that this was a welcoming song typically played at the beginning of the gathering. They were celebrating the members in their family that were still alive and with them and the bringing together of all enslaved peoples. A beat was kept with a drum ...
