Beautiful historic resort. Beautiful pools. One adult only, one kiddie and one lap pool. It was hard to swim laps with the kids playing in the pool. Hot tubs were great after a long day walking in Williamsburg. Rooms were dated, kitchen small, shower head not adjustable and it was like getting stabbed with a bunch of needles. Staff was friendly and helpful, grounds clean. Close to many historical attractions, restaurants and shopping.

I owned 2 lockout units at this resort from 1988-2014. It's a decent location for site seeing, nice pools, general store is a good place to get snacks, sodas etc. My recent Dec 2017 visit found a extremely long check-in time, very uncomfortable condo furniture which was worn out. The master bath only had a tub, the 2nd bath with the shower was off the dining room. Rediculous setup. Tiny old TV in the master. The carpets were stained, had seen better days. When we finally got our unit key, went to relax after our long drive, we were met with the horrible odor of turpentine upon opening the condo door. This odor was so strong it burned our eyes and we could actually taste it. My husband investigated the condo and found the odor was coming from what was once the hot tub room. We immediately called the front desk from the parking lot, they sent a security guard with a new key to another unit. This took roughly 15 minutes. Because we were given a new unit, I'm giving the staff 2 stars. Sadly, it's not the resort we once enjoyed. We understand building, roofing updates must be made, to include remodeling units, we don't understand how our first unit could have been rented in the condition it was in. How the staff, housekeeping didn't smell this overwhelming odor??!! How does the resort not know the condition of the carpets and furnishings. Considering what I once paid in yearly maintenance fees, I'm very thankful I sold my units.

Check in was extremely fast, got a gift package of coffee, peanuts and peanut brittle along with sandwiches. The unit itself was extremely clean and furnished. Staff responded fast to one request for a glass carafe coffee maker instead of the stainless insulated one.
