“Immersed in history, spacious rooms” Rated 5/5 Stars on TripAdvisor

Last July my family stayed at the Historic Powhatan Resort during a trip to Busch Gardens and Colonial Williamsburg. We absolutely loved the grounds, the manor house is beautiful and helped to immerse us in the history of the area. My husband and the older children enjoyed the ghost tour of the original manor house and now are less skeptical of supernatural occurrences after what they witnessed! For the younger child and myself, we enjoyed the beauty of the building by daylight :) We were impressed with the range of activities offered at the resort and enjoyed participating in many! We stayed in a 2 bedroom/ 2 bath condo and loved the extra space compared to a typical hotel room. We look forward to staying here again in the future!!

“Love Powhatan, lots of activities” Rated 5/5 Stars on TripAdvisor

My family almost always takes a yearly trip down to Williamsburg to visit Busch Gardens and we almost always stay at Powhatan. Through the years we have never been less than pleased. The staff is always extremely nice and accommodating, the condos are clean and we've never had issues with them. They are usually in the midst of renovating at least one block of condos, so they are usually pretty up to date. The clubhouse is great and offers numerous activities for the family including multiple pools, exercise rooms, a salon, and a restaurant (which is pretty darn good). They are always offering activities for the whole family including crafts, trips, and parties. There are several ponds/lakes there, all of which are great for fishing. We absolutely love Powhatan and will continue to come back.

Fairly priced accommodations and nearby

  • 4 of 5

The condo was ready when we arrived and the check in staff were very friendly and helpful. The “welcome package” (step 2 of check in process) was really a sales pitch to buy a time share which I could have done without after a 6 hour drive!

The place was very clean. Dated furniture. Kitchen had everything we needed. Beds were comfy and temp controls worked well. We felt safe there since we were two women traveling alone.

The grounds looked lovely but it was December! Our place was close to everything we were interested in seeing in Colonial Williamsburg including the fantastic outlets.

For the money, the Powhatan Village was just fine!!!

nice place but annoying sales people

  • 3 of 5

I thought the overall condo was ok. The furniture was a bit old and worn, but nothing terrible. However, the sales people would not leave me alone during my stay despite repeated requests that they do and they have continued to call me even though I originally stated that I didn't want any further communication from the resort company. I won't be staying again.

Nice unit, noisy neighbors, annoying sales calls

  • 3 of 5

I came here for a two week intensive training course. I wanted access to a kitchen so I can eat healthily. That was my main reason for choosing this location. However, I won't likely return because there were very high pressure sales calls almost everyday, and I could hear everything the neighbors did. They weren't loud, just moving around in normal activity. The unit was decent though there are signs of needing upgrade. My couch was sagging on one side and the carpet was very stained.
