This B&B is in the perfect location. The owner was very kind to let us spend one night. It is very clean and beautifully decorated. The owners were very friendly and breakfast was delicious. The bird boxes that housed the tvs were so cute and the bath products were very nice. The coffee and tea at all times was also very nice.

It is rare that I write reviews for accommodations when traveling but my recent stay at Fife and Drum was so exceptional I felt a review was in order! My husband and I had the pleasure of staying three nights at Fife and Drum while attending the W&M Global Film Festival. The inn itself is one of the most charming lodgings to date that we have stayed in while in Williamsburg. Our room was lovely, staff were awesome, and the owner was most accommodating! In addition to a warm breakfast and fresh fruit every morning, other simple but special touches like having cookies and tea and cocoa on hand anytime during our stay were well appreciated and enjoyed. Location could not have been better for the weekend events we had planned. Everything was in walking distance and free parking was a real plus given limited options for parking anywhere beyond hourly. It is fair to say we are looking forward to another stay here when we return to the area this spring!

Quaint and adorable B&B with very nice buffet breakfast. A block to main street Williamsburg shops and eateries. Everything from pubs to great shopping within walking distance. Historic Williamsburg in summer is busy and fun, Christmas offers twinkling lights and an old world feel. Any other time of year is laid back and free of of the hustle and bustle. Clean and comfortable!

Our family of five stayed in the cottage for four nights. We loved the location. It’s an easy walk to Colonial Williamsburg and restaurants and bars. We hardly used our car at all. We would love to return.
