Wedmore Place at the Williamsburg WineryMarch, 2011. Summary: Tucked away in the Virginia countryside is an ultra luxurious hotel reminiscent of European lodging. Wedmore Place is a perfect location for exploring Williamsburg area wineries and history.

When visiting Colonial Williamsburg, one is transported back in time to America’s Colonial period. An option to traditional hotel lodging is Wedmore Place, a 28-room European-style hotel adjacent to vineyards and the Williamsburg Winery, one of the oldest and largest wineries in Virginia. This wine destination site is built on Wessex Hundred, a 300-acre farm. The land was settled in 1615 and acquired by the Duffeler family in 1983. When the Duffelers planted grapes in 1985, a design for a country hotel was considered.

Wedmore Place was inspired by European architecture and each room in the hotel is named after an European region from a historical period. There are four types of rooms. The traditional rooms are located on the upper level and have more of a rustic theme. They range in size from 277 square feet to 325 square feet. The Classic Rooms are in the same size range and have antiques and works of art. Superior rooms are elegantly appointed and larger in size ranging from 326 square feet to 430 square feet. Need more room? The hotel has three beautiful suites ranging in size from 500 to over 1,100 square feet. The Venetian Suite is so elegant and large with the bedroom located on a second level, that it would be hard to leave once one enters it.
