You can feel the colonial spirit reverberating in Colonial Williamsburg, a historical town restored to its original English condition. Just two miles from Colonial Williamsburg, The Historic Powhatan Plantation Resort is highlighted by the restored, furnished Manor House (circa 1735) listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Amid 256 rolling woodland acres, The Historic Powhatan Resort offers a variety of fun during any season including indoor and outdoor swimming pools, tennis courts, an outdoor pavilion and playground. Visit Jamestown, Busch Gardens, Yorktown, and Water Country, all nearby. Golfers will enjoy discounted greens fees at Virginia's only Nicklaus-designed course.
The area around the resort was once the lands of the Powhatan Indian Confederation. With the legend of Chief Powhatan and his daughter, Pocahontas, along with Captain John Smith, the beginnings of America are all around.
Add to this the Restored Area in Williamsburg, a realistic picture of life during America’s Colonial Period, and you’ll experience a living lesson in US national history. No schoolbook can do justice to the "real thing."
Besides all of this, Busch Gardens, a world-class theme park is nearby and some of the best restaurants on the East Coast.
At the Resort, many games, crafts and activities for children and families are planned to keep even the youngest guests busy and entertained. The pools, mini-golf, volleyball, tennis, horseshoes and racquetball courts are fun for all ages. New this year is a shuffleboard court, located near the Pavilion.
