Colonial Williamsburg, the largest living history museum in the United States, portrays 18th-century Williamsburg from 1774 to 1781. Encompassing 301 acres, the restored Historic Area includes 88 original buildings, 225 period rooms, 500 reconstructed buildings (many on the original foundations,) a vast archaeological collection, thousands of American and English antiques and more.

For guests who wish to enjoy the ultimate 18th century experience, Colonial Williamsburg offers accommodations in 26 one-of-a-kind colonial style guest houses and cottages, located throughout the Historic Area. Some of the accommodations are one room within a tavern, while others are as large as 16 rooms. Larger groups may combine rooms within some of the houses to accommodate up to 32 guests.

Each of the Colonial Houses offers a unique appeal and history, and all are furnished with period antiques and reproductions. In addition, some of the houses have wood-burning fireplaces, sitting rooms or canopy beds.
