    • This is our second trip to Historic Powhatan Plantation. The grounds are beautiful and our condo was comfortable, and well stocked with everything we needed. The staff was prompt with bringing us extra soap and a pack and play. Although we didn’t get to use them on this trip, we have participated in the organized activities they offer (family bingo was so much fun), and the indoor pool and hot tub was clean and enjoyable. Close to the resort is Kidsburg, a public, free playground which is extra nice for young kids! Finally, the sidewalks around the resort make family walks or bike rides another plus!

      I was hesitant about staying at Historic Powhatan after reading mixed reviews online and my expectations upon arrive were for mediocre accommodations. I was so surprised to be wrong! Traveling alone with kids, I felt totally safe and the resort was beautiful. The décor in our unit was up to date and it was very clean! Close proximity to restaurants and amusement parks. Looking forward to visiting again.

      The resort was spacious and included well-maintained amenities. It was easy to find and near popular attractions and shops.

      There was plenty of room for the six of us. Everyone we talked to or got help from was exceptionally nice and helpful. Everything was clean and comfortable. We definitely will be returning here.

      The unit we stayed in was perfect for what we needed it......a trip back "home" for the holidays. Conveniently located and furnished with everything we needed. We did not use any of the resort amenities, so I can't rate them......we had many friends to visit and outside activities to attend. We were told that since the unit was a "rent by owner," that we could decline the "sales spiel" that accompanies a timeshare location.......they were a bit aggressive, more than I would have liked, even though they knew we rented from the timeshare owner. The young lady at check in, when they were giving us our "welcome" package did not want to take a polite "no" when offering the timeshare presentation. I had to tell her 3 times what our situation was and that we were not interested. About 2 days later "Patrick" called....started the conversation off by making sure everything was acceptable with the unit, but then went into "sales mode." I again explained that we come back every year at this time for a reunion, and he responded with "you mean you only travel once a year?" I had to get curt with him to make him back down. I did not feel that it was his business to know hiw many times we travel - we actually own an Airstream camper and travel frequently during warm weather all over the US, but I did not feel like telling my business in order to avoid a sales pitch. Last night, the night before check out, another young lady called to explain the checkout process....very polite and informational.......but just had to get one last chance at a sales pitch - I cut her off before she could get started, and told her we were not interested. She gave up easily, laughing (she must have sensed I'd had enough), and wished us a safe trip back home. That process is the only reason I did not give a 5-star rating. I think possibly renters of this unit should be warned more strongly of the aggressive nature of the staff......or the staff needs to be told that they are not to badger anyone renting the unit. Would DEFINITELY stay here agsin, but will be better prepared for the aggressive nature of the employees - and will not be as nice next time. I understand that they have a HARD job.....sales are not easy.....but a rental by owner situation is a bit different, and should be dealt with differently.

      The Historic Powhatan Resort was really lovely. They placed us in a recently renovated unit, and it was spacious and very comfortable. We did have some issues with reliable internet connectivity, which is the only reason I give the resort a 4 instead of a 5. The resort did send someone over to look at the connectivity issues and the fellow moved the router to give us a slightly better connection, but still not reliable during heavy traffic times.

      First time at this resort. Awesome resort!!! Will definitely be back.

      Tripbound set me up with a wonderful 3-night stay at Powhatan resort. They made sure I was close to everything I needed while I was in Williamsburg. The suite was newly remodeled and nicely appointed. I had all the space and amenities that I needed during my stay. Unlike some other resorts I've stayed at, Powhatan makes their amenities highly accessible. An on-site coffee shop and restaurant, plus a 24/7 gym meant that I always had what I needed when I needed it.
      Posted by Brandi W. on 02.03.2017
      It was a peaceful stay at the resort. Booking via TripBound was very helpful and convenient. I was able to check in late.
      Posted by SJ on 02.03.2017
      I reserved a stay at the Historic Powhatan through Tripbound for a return visit home to see family and friends. I was looking for something fairly inexpensive since I most of the time i was visiting. Once I got there I was so impressed I just wanted to hang out at the resort. Gated security which was great since I was traveling alone, spacious condo, cozy fireplace, great restaurant, coffee house and store. The internet was good and did not cause a problem. The people were super friendly. I cannot give this place enough stars. If I had to say anything negative I would say the bed could be a tad more comfy but that is a preference thing. It was not uncomfortable but I am accustomed to a soft tempurpedic so it felt a little firm to me but I could see where it would be perfect for others that prefer a firmer bed. Don't hesitate to book!

      We rented a condo for a consultant, who was helping us with some quality concerns we were having and he really enjoyed his stay. The two bedroom condo was spacious and very clean. The rates were a great deal also.

      We stayed at the Powhatan Resort two nights last week. The resort is very nice. We requested a downstairs unit and our unit was very nice, spacious and overlooked one of the ponds. We were busy sightseeing so did not have time to use the pool, etc. The location was easily accessible to the attractions in the area. I would definitely stay here again when in the area.
      Posted by Freddie on 10.17.2016
      Excellent service, beautiful grounds, definitely will come back, awesome for families, plenty to do on the property, near great food and shops

      Tripbound was wonderfully helpful and efficient and got us a fabulous rate on our last minute vacation.My family just returned from the Historic Pawhawtan Resort and we were absolutely thrilled with our stay. The unit we stayed in had two bedrooms and a fold out sofa (which incidentally was very good quality and quite comfortable-not a single complaint from the kids!). The unit was very spacious for a family of six (four children ages 9-13), with a large family room/dining area and large, modern bathrooms. We never felt like we were on top of each other and the kids had plenty of room to have their space when they hit their max of family bonding time:) The unit had clearly been updated (which I did request at the time of booking) and was meticulously clean. The kitchen was well stocked and provided enough space to prepare quick breakfasts and sandwiches for lunch/light meals. There are also charcoal and gas grills available throughout the resort. We requested an upper level unit and it was very quiet-we hardly knew we had neighbors.My family particularly enjoyed the pools, although in the midst of a major height wave, it would have been great if the water was maintained at a cooler level (if that's possible?). The pools are open long hours-which was great for evening swims, and towels are provided. The staff is very friendly, helpful and welcoming. While, the pools did get crowded at times, there is enough space between the 3 pools to feel like you have your own space. The pool complex is absolutely beautiful, as are all of the grounds In addition, the mini golf was super fun for the kids. Because we spent so much time at Busch Gardens (awesome Roller Coasters!!), we did not have time to take advantage of the volleyball court or other recreational areas which we had intended on using. There truly is so much to do-your kids will never be bored just hanging at the resort if you are not planning on visiting other area attractions.Overall, I would highly recommend this resort and would absolutely visit again. The pictures of the resort do not adequately reflect the true beauty of the grounds and accommodations. The pictures look nice, but the resort truly has a WOW factor. My entire family will remember this vacation for many years to come.

      I am 100% satisfied with every aspect of our stay at the Historic Powhatan Resort. The rental unit was clean, fully furnished, and well maintained. This was a great deal and the resort was one of the most peaceful places we have had the pleasure to stay. For our family this was the best vacation we have had in a long time. Thanks to Tripbound for their part in this experience.

      Tripbound had the best customer service. They helped me get the best rate and checked in throughout the stay to ensure we were happy every step of the way. The Historic Powhatan was beautiful and had every amenity. I will defiantly be back.

      Tripbound gave me great customer service when booking my stay at the Historical Powhatan Resort in Williamsburg, VA. The check-in was easy and the condo was beautiful. We truly enjoyed our stay. The rooms had everything we needed and it was relaxing. We will definitely book our stay again at the HIstorical Powhatan with Tripbound. in the future!

      Tripbound & The Historical Powhatan Resort were wonderful. Everything went smoothly, we received a great price, the grounds were beautiful, staff was friendly, we had everything we needed in the condo. Would definitely return.

      Our stay at this resort was excellent. The two bedroom condo was really nice. Had plenty of room and sleeping space for 5 people. The pools were very clean and the grounds were very well maintained. Would stay there again!
      Posted by Clinton on 07.28.2016
      The booking with Tripbound was easy and everything went smoothly. The 2 bedroom upstairs unit was large and clean, but I don't think it was a renovated unit as requested. We even asked at checkin if we were in a renovated unit and were told that we were. However, the inside of the unit didn't tell the same story. In a couple of spots, we could feel holes in the floor under the carpet and some of the furniture was well worn. However, the room was still comfortable, the staff was very nice and friendly and most important to me, everything was clean. The grounds are beautiful and the food at the on site restaurant was good. Overall, it was a very good experience.

      Our family of 3 had a two bedroom unit upstairs and were very happy! We only stayed two nights, but the room was comfortable, homey and satisfying. The resort lent us a pack and play for our 1 year old. (she didn't like it much, but at least she slept!) We enjoyed the resort and would like to go back and check out amenities!

      Wonderful family resort filled with activities for every age. Accommodations were very clean. Staff was friendly and helpful. Will return to this resort next time we are in Williamsburg.

      The ghost tour at the resort was excellent. Our air conditioner went out and maintenance came right over and fixed the unit. Excellent service.

      Thank you Tripbound and the Historic Powhatan for another wonderful Williamsburg vacation!My family of 4 just got back from 6 nights at the Historic Powhatan and it was truly a fantastic vacation. We booked our 2-bed/2-bath unit through Tripbound within 30 days of our travel date and received a great price! Thank you Tripbound for answering all my questions and getting back to me so quickly. The staff at Tripbound is just so awesome. The Historic Powhatan itself was just as advertised. I have no complaints, except for check-in. The line was so long and only two employees working behind the counter. My only suggestion is to add more employees during the busy check-in time (4pm). We love the resort pools. Big and clean. The kids had so much fun!! Will be back!!

      Megan was terrific at assisting with a last minute booking. The updated unit with a deck as requested was a great place to hang out, cook, and visit with family. Convenient to necessities, nice pools and grounds. The resort made our visit all that more enjoyable, especially for the price. We'll be back again!
      Posted by Peggy on 06.26.2016
      Although we booked this trip last minute, Tripbound was awesome. We got everything we were looking for in accommodations at a fabulous price! The staff at Tripbound were great about answering my many questions and making sure that all our needs were met. The resort was very nice and located in a great area. It was exactly as advertised and the staff there were very helpful and pleasant as well. We are already looking forward to planning our next getaway with Tripbound and have recommended their travel services to our friends!

      We just had a wonderful stay in Williamsburg June 20th - 23rd. We needed another couple of days to fully enjoy all the amenities as most of our time was busy @ Colonial Williamsburg, Jamestown, & Yorktown. The rooms were great & definitely met expectation. Our youngest son was amazed that a sofa sleeper could be so comfortable & such high quality (he's slept on many while traveling). Our stay was a very comfortable home away from home. The value for our money was outstanding & all staff were friendly & courteous. We will use your resort & recommend you to others in future travels.

      Our family stayed at the Historic Powhatan during spring break 2016. I must say that we had stayed in that resort before and since we liked it we came back. Now, about booking our vacation through Tripbound, it was awesome. Let's start with the price, they offered the best price for the kind of accommodations that we wanted. After booking my reservation, some of my extended family wanted to join in, so I called Megan and she was so helpful and attentive. She answered all my questions, and made everything so much enjoyable. thank you Megan.

      Very spacious, convenient, and accessible to many of the amenities.The place was very clean and very spacious. It has three plus bedrooms, bathrooms, a full kitchen, fireplace, and a washer/dryer. In the kitchen, everything from plates, silverware, pots and pans, a blender, cutting boards, with the exception of a wine glass or two. I bought a bottle of local Virginia wine and realized when I got back to the place that there were no wine glasses (unless I missed seeing them). Other than that, everything was there that we could possibly need.The place is also very accessible as its walking distance to the front office, pool, tennis courts, etc. A local breakfast diner is right around the corner after leaving the resort, and the resort is also right near New Town, a very nicely redone new area of Williamsburg with shops, a supermarket, sushi restaurant, etc. Colonial Williamsburg is a very short drive away, as well.I could see my wife and myself, as well as more of my family, staying there again.

      We booked here based on the photos and reviews, and they didn't lie. We took a small group of seniors on a trip to Williamsburg to see historical sites, serve those in need, and bond. This resort was very close to everything that we wanted to see and do. It was very clean, and the amenities were perfect.
      Posted by Laci W. on 04.04.2016
      Yes, Virginia is for Lovers. What a wonderful experience we had during our stay. The walking trails are blessing. The gazebo calls you to come and steal a kiss. The resorts provides everything you could think of includes pulsating shower. If you don't know what to do in the solar room, try dancing. This experience will stay with us for a long time.

      We booked our trip last minute, and were thrilled to find a unit to comfortably fit our family of 6, with four children, aged 6-17. The Resort was easy to find, and driving in toward the Manor House is truly a "wow" moment! The check-in staff was friendly, professional and very helpful. Our unit was fabulous! It was very clean and everything was in like-new condition and great working order. There was so much character in the loft bedroom with the twin beds, and there were several charming seating nooks to make anyone want to crack open a good book and sit a while. There was so much to do on the resort, and there seemed to be always a party or some activity going on. There were families with children, grandparents hosting their adult children and families, and couples enjoying what the resort had to offer. The adults-only pool is a nice touch to get away from the horseplay, while retaining a front-row seat to the action. Still, it never seemed crowded, and despite all of the family fun happening, our unit was very quiet. We weren't disturbed at all by neighbors and resort activities while we were in our unit. During our stay, we visited Yorktown/Jamestown and Colonial Williamsburg. We discovered lovely local restaurants and a great, convenient shopping center just 10 minutes away. We will be back, and we are recommending this resort and booking through Tripbound to ANYONE who will listen!

      Very nice large 2 Bedroom Unit, everything was great, did not "need" for anything, all shopping close by, Very friendly helpful staff; Will definitely refer others & come back again. THE BEST PART: this was cheaper than a motel & so much nicer & upscale!!
      Posted by Deb D. on 06.03.2015
      We love this place! Stayed at one of the newly renovated units with 2 bed/2 bath. Plenty of room for our family of 4. Free amenities on site make it perfect for kids to stay entertained when we need to chill for a day. So close to many attractions. We will definitely stay here again and use Tripbound for the best rates.

      Our 2 bedroom upstairs condo was lovely! Modern furnishings, stocked kitchen, clean spacious area made this a good choice for our extended family. This condo was a short walk to the pools, mini golf and walking paths which was great for grandchildren. Tripbound was very helpful in selecting these accommodations.

Everything about this experience was perfect. From day 1 of booking to the last day when we were checking out of the resort, the whole process was seamless. The condo we stayed at in Sevierville, TN was spacious, the beds were amazing, the amenities kept our whole family entertained, and the location couldn’t have been better. I would highly recommend this rental to any family that is traveling. We will continue to use Tripbound for our future vacation accommodations. Thank you for making our vacation feel like home.
