What a great experience we had staying at this beautiful B&B! The owners, David and Phil, and innkeeper, Sarah, made sure we had an enjoyable stay with them with delicious breakfasts each morning, relaxing happy hour with wine and cheese in the late afternoon, tales of the history of the house, and recommendations of things to see and do in...

The Hornsby House is an incredible experience. We felt as if we were welcomed into to the home as if we were old friends. David and Phil went out of their way to make sure we felt comfortable and cared for. Drinks in the evening, and an incredible breakfast in the morning. Sitting at the family table as we learned...

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.

Great time at the Inn. Our rooms were clean and comfortable. Our host, David Bowditch made us feel family returning for a visit.

Can't say enough about our stay and the staff. They were accommodating in every way possible and provided valuable information, tickets, and insight about the area and its history. The family that owns this house has a history of their own which is also interesting and fun. The rooms are clean, well-kept, and the staff welcomes input. House is large...

We found this place by chance and were only able to stay one night but I would recommend the Hornsby Inn as your base for 2-3 nights when visiting the Historic Triangle. You are only a short drive from both Jamestown and Williamsburg and have a wonderful, peaceful place to come back to each night with lovely views over the...
