This was a very short trip to Virginia, to spend the weekend with my two sisters . . . one who still lives in the DC Metro Area in NoVA and the other who has since moved out west to the high desert of California. My youngest sister had also been down to Myrtle Beach for about ten days before heading north to Williamsburg, so she brought along her daughter-in-law and her 15 month old grandbaby.I flew into Richmond which is generally the most convenient airport, although many use the Norfolk/Newport News Airport probably because the airlines call it the WILLIAMSBURG/Newport News Airport. If you are planning a trip to Williamsburg, I would personally suggest looking into Richmond as it is v...Read More

UPDATE 7/20/10: Shackleford's II is no longer open in Williamsburg. They still have their original location in Richmond, VA.This has become a familiar and regular dining spot whenever I come to Williamsburg. Their menu and quality are outstanding; you can count on a great meal here!While my sister Cindy and my niece Brooke had both lived in Williamsburg, I don't think either had been here for dinner although both knew of the place.We arrived shortly after 5:00pm on Friday evening, and other that a few folks out on the patio enjoying an adult beverage and a strumming guitar entertainer, it was pretty quiet. By the time we were done with our meal, however, busines...Read More

I cannot believe how long I've been coming to Williamsburg, dating back to when my mom lived here in the late 1980's and since buying a timeshare there in 2001, and have never visited The Cheese Shop. When my mom lived here, she and my sister who also lived in Williamsburg used to enjoy lunches either as carry-out or dining outside on the patio. Since that time, they have expanded and moved to Merchant's Square.The four of us "girls" along with toddler Noah enjoyed a sunny Saturday afternoon of sandwiches and people watching on the front patio the faced DOG Street (Duke of Gloucester Street for those not from Williamsburg).As you enter the shop, you will first see a lot of sh...Read More

We own a timeshare in Williamsburg but for this trip, my sister rented a two bedroom unit through a rental service. I was very impressed with the overall quality of the unit and the resort complex itself.Our two bedroom unit included a large living room/dining room combo with a spacious full sized kitchen. Fully equipped for six guests, we were very comfortable with all of the space and seating available. The sofa was a queen size sleeper, making it possible for six adults to stay here comfortably.The master bedroom had a king size bed with drawers and closet space suitable for a week or two vacation. The master bathroom was also roomy, the shower actually huge!...Read More

There aren't many timeshare resorts that have restaurants on their property. Our Kingsgate Resort recently added one (maybe two years ago) and from all accounts, it is pretty bad. I'm guessing that when you are catering to vacation travelers and cost conscious families it is tough to have enough business at an affordable price to make ends meet. In today's tough economic times, I'm sure it is especially challenging.Powhatan Plantation Resort has two restaurants including their casual dining choice Powhatan Grill which is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. While we stopped in at dinner time one evening, I must admit the thought of a good country breakfast with homemade biscuits was v...Read More
