You can feel the colonial spirit reverberating in Williamsburg, a 170 acre historic town restored to its original English condition.
The Historic Powhatan Resort offers a slice of colonial history with the restored Manor House (circa 1735).
Amid 256 rolling woodland acres, The Historic Powhatan Resort offers a variety of fun during any season including cascading indoor and outdoor swimming pools, tennis courts, an outdoor pavilion and a playground.
The mansion on the property is a great place to meet or just enjoy it's charm. There is a small grocery and restaurant on site.
1, 3, and 4 bedrooms are also available. Pricing will vary depending unit size and season.
Nice history of the property:

Other Things to Note
Ground-floor and second floor 2 BR units only sleep 6. The 2 BR lock-off units sleep 8.
Free Wifi. Ask for the code at check-in. Verify that the unit has been recently upgraded.
I also have an outstanding 3 BR townhouse in a gated resort available in Orlando.
This condo is in a Time Share resort. The reservation process went smoothly. Check in involved a pushy marketing pitch to attend a sales meeting. They later called the unit twice more to encourage attendance at a market session.
There was no Welcome packet, bottle of wine or beer left for guests at Stephens condo. Our sister rented an identical unit through Trip Advisor and paid $60.00 less per night and both beer and wine were left in her unit's refrigerator.
The condo is advertised to sleep 8, however there is 1 King bed, 2 twin beds and a sleeper sofa (that's room for 6!)
It took 2 calls to the desk to get sufficient towels and pillows.
The bathrooms had unpatched holes from trying to find a stud to install safety bars in each bathroom.
There were some issues with check in (reservation couldn't be found). But once inside the problem with check in was forgotten as the apartment was just perfect - very spacious, clean and had everything we needed for both our family and our friend's family (total of 7).
The property was as advertised. The location was convient to Colonial Williamsburg. The extra amenities like fitness center and pool were very much appreciated. We were able to share a few great family meals from Trader Joes and socialize more comfortably would have been possible in an ordinary hotel or motel.
Wonderful place! Spacious , clean and has a wonderful balcony . Would
Come here again!
Excellent location for visiting the historic sites. Appartments were well-equipped, clean and spacious.
Stephen was very helpful in answering my questions in preparation for my trip. If he was unable to provide me with an answer, he directed me to someone at the resort who could.
This two-bedroom, two-bath condo is an inexpensive alternative to Williamsburg's pricey hotels. Located in a downmarket resort, the condo was perfectly sufficient as a base for sightseeing in the area. We had none of the issues that other visitors reported re: checking in, the condo was clean and quiet, there's a fitness center on site (as well as a restaurant, which we didn't check out), and the location is an easy 15-minute drive to Colonial Williamsburg. Comparable to a three-star hotel but with much more space.

I have traveled in Asia and many parts of the United States. I have enjoyed many one and two bedroom accommodations in some wonderful resorts with full kitchens. I will work with you to find accommodations if they are available.
My Orlando area townhouse is a great deal for anyone interested in Disney.
