“Can’t wait to return. Already making plans for our next visit.”
In 1999, Sharon and Billy Scruggs opened Fife & Drum Inn, fulfilling a long-term plan of renovating a family property and turning it into a distinctive inn. The building was built by A.W. Hitchens (grandfather to Sharon). It was to replace property he operated on the Duke of Gloucester as a general store. He sold that land in 1933 to John D. Rockefeller. At that time, Rockefeller was purchasing most of the properties to be rebuilt as the restoration of 18th-century Williamsburg.
This distinctive bed and breakfast celebrates the importance of Williamsburg when it was the colonial capital, as it emphasizes the 20th century restoration of the town through the experience of the Hitchens family. Each room of the inn contains antique prints and memorabilia that highlight aspects of historic Williamsburg, Jamestown and Yorktown.
Billy and Sharon’s commitment to guests will ensure you have an extraordinary experience on your visit.
“We were raised in Williamsburg, with upbringings entrenched in Southern Hospitality. We really enjoy the opportunity to make sure our guests have a most unique, memorable, and relaxing stay. We believe you will have such a wonderful time that when you think of getting away, your first thought will be, “Let’s return to the Fife & Drum Inn, our favorite place to stay!”
