A Convenient, Luxurious Bed & Breakfast in the Heart of Downtown Williamsburg

Policies of our Williamsburg VA Bed and Breakfast


The Fife & Drum Inn accepts MasterCard, Visa, AMEX, Discover, Personal Check and cash.


Cancellations obviously adversely affect us. When a last minute cancellation occurs, it affords us little chance of re-selling the space.

Should situations arise requiring a change or a cancellation in your reservation, we of course sympathize. To minimize our loss (not to penalize our guest) we ask that you honor our agreement.

A change or cancellation of a confirmed reservation more than 30 days in advance will result in our refunding your deposit, less $25.00. Should you wish, the full deposit may be applied to a future stay.

Cancellation of a confirmed reservation inside 30 days of the scheduled arrival date will result in no refund being given ( regardless of the reason for non-arrival or early departure.) Cancellations within 7 days will be charged full reserved stay amount.Early departure will be charged for the full reserved amount

If our Williamsburg VA Bed and Breakfast can rebook the date, we will gladly give you a credit toward a future stay. You are also welcome to send someone else in your place.

Length of Stay:

Any Friday or Saturday night visit requires a minimum two night stay. Select holidays and special events (W&M homecoming and graduation, Grand Illumination, etc.) require a 3 night minimum.
