Built among the vineyards of the Williamsburg Winery, this 28-unit country house has a wonderfully European feel to it. From the soaring two-story lobby to the well-appointed guest rooms, the atmosphere is elegant and refined. There is no "standard room" here—all of them are decorated in different styles and colors. But you can count on king beds, wood-burning fireplaces (the staff will light them for you), and spacious bathrooms. Honeymooners and those celebrating other special occasions may consider springing for the three suites. The deep-red Venetian Suite, the largest, is a "wow," from its Gothic nail-studded door to the two-story living room with the bedroom on the second level. Guests receive complimentary tours and tastings at the winery. On the premises, the casual Gabriel Archer Tavern serves lunch and dinner and the more formal (but not too formal) Cafe Provencal is open for dinner. Historical note:  The property itself was once considered for Virginia's very first settlement, although Jamestown was ultimately chosen.
