Wedmore Place, A Country Hotel at the Williamsburg Winery, Williamsburg, Virginia 23185
Situated near the 1607 settlement of Jamestown Island and minutes from Colonial Williamsburg’s Historic Area, Wedmore Place offers comfort, relaxation, old-fashioned courtesy, good food and good wines.
The 300 acre farm where Wedmore Place stands today was acquired in 1983 as a virtually abandoned parcel by Patrick and Peggy Duffeler. They named it Wessex Hundred; “Wessex”, meaning Saxons of the West, to reflect their combined cultural heritage, “Hundred” the traditional identification of early settlements for a tract of land that could provide for one hundred residents.
Imagine arriving at an old European estate and settling in for a comfortable stay. Begin with a glass of our house methode champenoise imported from France on the pool-side terrace. Enjoy a glass of Port in the library designed to create the atmosphere of a British club. Go for a walk in the park around Wedmore Place, stop in at the Williamsburg Winery and go for a special tasting in the Reserve Cellar.
Settle yourself in one of 28 individually designed rooms and suites. All guests will enjoy a sumptuous retreat with period antiques, European bedding and luxurious linens.
Each room was themed in the style of a different European province, not only in the selection of colors and furnishings, but also the wall hangings and decoration. All rooms have a fireplace, individual floor designs from Spanish tiles to walnut parquet, 10’ ceilings and king size beds. The style of each room reflects not only a different geographical area but also different periods of history from the Corinthian room inspired by the classic Greek forms of Antiquity featuring a large marble statue, Corinthian columns, large white ceramic tiling on the floor to the rustic room recalling the Shakespearean times with a four poster bed next to the eaves in the wood paneled Cotswold room.
