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.
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.
