Condos Surrounding 18th-Century Manor near Williamsburg
The Historic Powhatan Resort’s manor house in Williamsburg, Virginia, dates back to 1735—an etching of “1643” on one of its bricks refers to the year of its land grant from King Charles I. 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 more than 250 wooded acres, the perfect setting for families visiting Williamsburg for its historic colonial attractions.
Powhatan's spacious one- and two-bedroom units are located within several buildings surrounding its 18th-century showpiece. There are separate dining and living areas inside each unit, 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 kitchenette or fully equipped kitchen stocked with all the necessary dishes and cutlery. The resort's onsite restaurant, The Powhatan Bar and Grille, serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
In between visits to Williamsburg's historic sites and theme parks, feel free to take part in one of the resort’s organized activities. Check the calendar for a rundown of events, including painting, bingo, and ghost-and-paranormal tours.
