trip-advisor-2014

We are pleased to announce that for the third year in a row you all helped us earn a 2014 Certificate of Excellence from TripAdvisor! It’s all thanks to guests consistently ranking our Virginia bed and breakfast high in reviews.

The fact that our guests not only come back year after year, but also take the time when they get home to tell people about their stay, is humbling and tells us we’re creating the very environment we dreamed of.

The TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence award celebrates hospitality excellence and is given only to establishments that consistently achieve outstanding traveler reviews on TripAdvisor.

Winners of the Certificate of Excellence are located all over the world and represent the upper echelon of businesses listed on the website, with only the top 10 percent receiving the prestigious award, according to TripAdvisor, the world’s largest travel site.

To qualify for the Certificate of Excellence, businesses must maintain an overall rating of four or higher, out of a possible five, as reviewed by travelers on TripAdvisor. Additional criteria include the volume of reviews received within the last 12 months.

The Inn at Warner Hall previously earned the Top 10 Most Romantic Inns in Virginia by American Historic Inns, publisher of Bed & Breakfasts Guide Books and iLoveInns.com, was named two years in a row a top bed and breakfast in the state by Virginia Living Magazine and is listed by both the National Register of Historic Places and the Virginia Historic Landmarks Commission. The Inn at Warner Hall also continues to be a proud member of Select Registry – Distinguished Inns of North America, an association which represents nearly 350 unique and distinguished inns, B&Bs and small hotels.

It sits at the head of the Severn River in Gloucester County. The manor house stands on a neck of land occupied and built upon continually from the mid-17th century.

The original six hundred-acre plantation site was established by Augustine Warner as a “land grant” from the British Crown. Augustine Warner received the acreage in exchange for bringing twelve settlers across the Atlantic Ocean to the Jamestown Settlement.

The two families associated with the property from this early period until well into the 19th century – the Warners and the Lewises – were among the most prominent families in Colonial Virginia. Some of the most recognized names in American history are direct descendants of Augustine Warner – George Washington, the first U.S. president, Robert E. Lee, the most famous Civil War general, and Captain Meriwether Lewis, renowned American explorer of the Lewis & Clark expedition.

Queen Elizabeth II, the current monarch of England, is a direct descendent of Augustine Warner through the Bowes-Lyon family and the Earl of Strathmore. In England, Warner Hall is referred to as “the home of the Queen’s American ancestors.”
