Circa 1933. This grand brick inn has welcomed guests for three generations. The formal décor in the living room gives a historic ambiance to a social space, sunlight shines on the majestic hearth in the sunroom, and the Yorktown Victory Monument appears to watch over the patio. Many stories have been shared at the large family table where breakfast is served each morning. Two third-floor rooms are favorites of guests looking for quiet and privacy. The Chesapeake Suite boasts a private terrace and the option to add a second bedroom for families or friends traveling together. Accommodation options are rounded out by two more elegant guest rooms with private bathrooms. After a day of sightseeing, return to the inn for a complimentary wine and cheese reception or high tea. Yorktown offers many opportunities for historic exploration including revolutionary battlefields, 18th century homes, and nearby Colonial Williamsburg and the Jamestown Settlement.

Reservation/Cancellation Policies:


If you need to cancel your reservation, your full deposit can be applied to a future reservation with no amount lost. If a refund of deposit is requested and the CANCELLATION IS MORE THAN 18 DAYS before your arrival date, a $35 per room cancel fee will be applied. (This helps cover transaction fees.) If the CANCELLATION IS WITHIN 18 DAYS of your arrival date, a $90 per room cancel fee will be applied regardless of reason. Note that these cancels can adversely affect us. Your reservation holds that room preventing other bookings and results in less chance of our rebooking the room. Again, instead of any cancel fees, we can always hold and apply your full deposit towards a future reservation. "Whole House" reservation deposits are non-refundable.

Family Tradition Meets Hospitality!

A truly magical destination of southern hospitality. The Bowditch Family men, David, Gray, and Phil joined us for breakfast in the dinning room with fellow guests and told us stories of their family as that very table dating back 80 plus years. Such a treat to enjoy this Inn for two nights. We will definitely make it a point to return.
