Spacious Condos in an Area Steeped in Colonial History

The manor house on the grounds of The Historic Powhatan Resort dates back to 1735. Sturdily built with 20-inch-thick brick walls and distinctive T-shaped chimneys, the two-story structure survived the American Revolution and a fire during the Civil War that ravaged the surrounding plantation. Today, the house stands amid carefully manicured gardens and rolling hills on the resort's 250 wooded acres.

Powhatan's spacious suites occupy several buildings surrounding its historical showpiece. Inside each suite, there are separate dining and living areas so you can use the sofa to stage reenactments of General George Washington's crossing of the Delaware River. You can also craft meals in a fully equipped kitchen stocked with all the necessary dishes and cutlery.

The resort's onsite restaurant, The Kitchen at Powhatan (open Thursday–Sunday), serves seasonal food that fuses Southern and Californian dishes. The dining room has an enormous stone fireplace and period decor.

In between visits to Williamsburg's historic sites and theme parks, kids can romp through the resort's playground and splash pool. There are also tennis and racquetball courts as well as a full calendar of events, including fife performances, scavenger hunts, and wine tastings beside the pond.

Williamsburg, Virginia: Art and Entertainment in Historic Colonial Town

Part of the Historic Triangle of Virginia, Williamsburg played a central role during the American Revolution—American forces gathered there in 1781 to march to Yorktown for the final British defeat. The city pays homage to this patriotic past in a living museum where fifers march in Revolutionary War regalia and costumed actors portray everyday colonists. Historians have carefully preserved and restored 88 original 18th-century structures within the town; buildings of note include the opulent Governor’s Palace, built in 1722 to house the British governor, and the residential home of George Wythe, the first Virginian patriot to sign the Declaration of Independence. Yorktown Battlefield is only a short drive east; there, a park ranger guides visitors along the British defense and tells the story of the Revolutionary War's final siege.

Back in Williamsburg, the 18th-century-style specialty boutiques along Merchants Square sell everything from whimsical toys to hand-cooked Virginia peanuts. In addition to its historic sites, Williamsburg boasts a thriving artistic community, with original folk art and paint-by-number self-portraits of the Founding Fathers displayed at several galleries and art exhibits throughout the city.
