A Trip to Williamsburg



Mister and I went to Williamsburg, VA a couple of weeks ago. We stayed at The Country Cottage Bed and Breakfast. It is a little home owned by Louis and Geneva Hunt, that is our home away from home each year here.




Since we usually go in December, the Cottage is decked out in all its Christmas splendor.




The living room is so inviting. It has a wood burning fireplace.




Furnished with antiques.




Comfortable to relax in.




Even the quilt speaks the season.




We are so happy to stay here.




The attention to detail is delightful.




The kitchen is fully equipped. Every morning we have a fully stocked basket of cereal, fruit, biscuits, bagels, muffins. The fridge holds jelly, preserves, butter, cream cheese, fruit juice, milk, water, and cold drinks to choose from.




The brick of the back of the fireplace adds character.




Love the decoration on the kitchen chandy!




Kitchen Christmas details,




and cookie jar 1,




2,




3!




Christmas dishes and plates abound.




On to the master bedroom. The recliner is cozy.




The bed is comfy.




A second bedroom??? Why yes!




Lovely.




The bathroom?! Enormous! Even has a full size washer and dryer.




Louis has a state of the art woodshop. He owned a lumber mill millworks before he retired. All of the siding , cabinets, crown molding, chair rails were crafted by Louis. Mister says that Louis' workshop puts Norm Abrams' to shame.




Look at the craftmanship of the wood detail! Beautiful, lovely, character.

So....if ever you travel to Williamsburg, Louis, Geneva and their son, Robert will be most happy to welcome you!

Have a wonderful day, and please join Debra for Vintage (Christmas) Inspiration Friday.

Such a cozy B&B! No wonder it's like home away from home and that you enjoy it there so much. I really enjoyed seeing all the little touches that make it so pleasant for guests.

Oh Carol, this looks so inviting. It reminded me of the time my husband and I stayed at a B&B up in Vermont many years ago. So much attention to detail. This one looks lovely.

Your house looks great too with that beautiful white blanket over the frontyard. Not for me in Florida--although we came close this week--just two degrees more and maybe with rain we would have had snow.

Many Christmas blessings to you my friend.
