Stay at the Wedmore Place
The hotel derives its name from a 9th century agreement between King Alfred of Wessex and the Danish leader Guthrum to prevent military conflicts. The Treaty of Wedmore established geographical boundaries to promote peace in the area. Patrick and Francoise Duffeler went to travel to Wedmore in 2006 to learn more about the history of Wessex.
Wedmore Place opened in 2007 with Gerald Baliles in attendance, fitting as the former Virginia Governor was also on hand for the launch of the winery 11 years earlier.
The Tradition Rooms are named for Scandinavia, Wales, Bohemia, Bavaria, Tyrol, Gascony, Languedoc, Killarney, Corinthian, Normandy, Ardennes and Westphalia. The larger Classic Rooms are named for Lombardi, Brittany, Piemonte, Champagne, Cornwall, Vienna, Catalonia and Andalucía. The even larger corner rooms are Brandenburg, Castilla, Provence, Burgundy and Cotswold. Three suites with separate sitting rooms range in size from the Tuscany Suite to the Aquitaine Suite to the largest room in the hotel, the 1,100 square-foot Venetian Suite.
Antiques from Scandinavia, Holland, Germany, Belgium, Italy, Spain and France are sprinkled throughout the rooms, suites and lobby. Most benefit from a wood-burning fireplace.
Although it is relatively recent construction, Wedmore Place feels like a warm, cozy country house. A Washington Post review described it as “neither hoity nor toity,” comparing a walk inside to a giant group hug.
Guests rest well here. The luxury linens on the king-sized beds help along with the secluded location among the 400 acres that comprise the winery, most of them wooded green space. A peek out any window offers a picturesque view that invites you outdoors. But feel free to stay in to revel in a slice of European hospitality in the heart of Williamsburg.
” Like being in a European country house”
Wonderful atmosphere with careful decorator touches to make you feel as though you are a guest in a European country house. Staff was helpful and very friendly. Breakfast with quiche, scones, and fresh fruit was a wonderful start to the day.
