I like to the think of the Kingsmill as a one-stop getaway because it has all of the activities necessary, right on site or within an easy shuttle ride, to make for a darn nice vacation. To count them down: two golf courses; a large swimming pool; tennis courts; shuttles to Colonial Williamsburg, the Williamsburg Winery, Busch Gardens, and Water Country USA; multiple on-site restaurants and bars; and a pastry shop. Accommodations are spread in 10-unit villas that overlook the riverfront, Wareham's Pond, and the golf course. Units range from a standard hotel rooms to livable suites with one or two bedrooms, kitchen, and living room. All are privately owned, so the decor can vary widely, but the amenities are the same from building to building. First-floor units are handicapped-accessible and have walk-out patios. Center suites offer full kitchens and gas fireplaces in the living room. Every unit has a balcony or patio. New riverfront cottages were finished in the spring of 2014. All of Kingsmill's public spaces were overhauled in the winter of 2013-14. The spa was temporarily relocated for the summer season with a new spa to open in late fall 2014. Set in a gated residential community, the resort's operator Xanterra (which manages national park accommodations) decided to make one of its three golf courses, along with a golf club and other recreational amenities, available to members only. But it continues to keep its guests happy as it regularly upgrades the resort spaces.
