We are located one block from Christiana Campbell's Tavern located at the east end of the Historic Area. It's a short walk from our front door to Colonial Williamsburg. Walk out of the cul-de-sac, over the bridge, across the street and you are there. Once you have your CW pass you have access to their bus service which has a stop in-front of the tavern. From there it's an easy ride to anywhere in the area or a beautiful walk down Duke of Gloucester Street. Hopefully, you will enjoy our location as much as we do.
