Experience true Virginian elegance at the Kingsmill Resort in Williamsburg, Virginia. This is a destination steeped in preserved traditions and pure southern hospitality. Enjoy as a getaway for family fun, gal pal time or some personal R&R. At Kingsmill Resort you won’t need to lift a finger with so much right on the property to fulfill any fancy or whim.

One of my favorite parts of Kingsmill Resort is how it’s steeped in southern history and the preservation of the grounds. The sprawling grounds are situated alongside the James River. The landscapes and enticing views are kept in tip-top shape: perfect for a relaxing walk, afternoon tea time or enjoying a good book. Photography by SBM Portraits


The enchanting lodging and traditional interiors are mesmerizing. The grandiose spaces filled with oversized furniture allow guests a luxurious, yet cozy atmosphere in the guest rooms, condos, or the cottages on the James River. For the extra elite stay, check out the 7,000 square foot The Estate at Kingsmill formerly the William Pettus House. Former President Obama resided in the house during his 2012 election campaign. Book your reservation to enjoy the residence that sits on a magnificent bluff overlooking the James River located within the gated, manicured grounds. Courtesy of Kingsmill Resort


Whether you are overdue for a social gathering, desiring waterfront views, or a historical experience with accommodations then Kingsmill Resort may be just what you need. It is perfect for hosting and requires no effort but offers endless fun memories for you and your loved ones. Courtesy of Kingsmill Resort Photography by SBM Portraits
