Historical Traveler Reviews Legacy of Williamsburg Bed and Breakfast

Fun, Warm and Welcoming

from

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

from

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

from

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

from

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!)

Enjoy!!

A Wonderful B&B

from

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

from

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.

Romantic getaway

from

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

from

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

from

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

from

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!

... br> As we contemplated our impending life in Zimbabwe, we considered the lessons we may learn from the colonial trailblazers in Williamsburg: Devika hooted and hollered, celebrating the freedom to use her "outside voice;" Neela embodied the Protestant work ethic as she doggedly wiggled her first loose tooth; Chaaya was the very personification of British stoicism as she admirably withstood a wicked yellow jacket sting with barely a whisper. Our work here was done. ...

Hi All We have had 3 more great days here. We've explored Williamsburg with indentured servants and enslaved servants and famous residents- General George Washington, George Wyeth, Marquis De Lafayette and John Pelham, organist for Burton Parish and the former Royal Governor. In fact Mr Pelham gave a benefit harpsichord concert in the Capitol Building last night. We also had a gourmet dinner, lit eighteenth century style, at Christianna Campbell's historic tavern. ...

... except where it benefitted us. Until Monday. It seems that there had been an accident ahead of us and a tractor-trailer had left debris on the track. Luckily we got the word and there was no danger for us. We got to our condo, (2 bdrms 2baths, and a full kitchen, plus washer and dryer), about 11/2 hrs late. But our place is really lovely. And it's nice to be able to fix our own food for a change. Steve exchanged one of our time-shares for this and it was a really good choice. ...

... in the New World. It was originally called James Fort and was established in 1607. Maybe it's just because our son Reese is an archeologist, but it sounded cool to us to actually see the site being excavated. This is the place where Captain John Smith and Pocahontas were and all brochures say we will "walk in their footsteps." While doing some research about the site, we discovered that on the last Wednesday of the month several times a year the lead ...

... is still very much a part of their daily lives. When we talk to people around here about different battles and wars fought in the area it quickly becomes apparent that we know very little. Of course we’ve learned U.S. History throughout our elementary years but unfortunately they get forgotten. People who live around this history experience it every day and it is fascinating to hear them talk about it. We are learning so much but are eager to learn ...
