Williamsburg Plantation Resort Review
Our 7 night resort stay at the Williamsburg Planation really made our entire experience/vacation just great.
My purpose at coming the Colonial Williamsburg area Virgina was to fully explore Colonial Williamsburg, Jamestown, Jamestown Settlement and Yorktown.
I purchased the 7 day ticket package to all three venues because I wanted to come and go at ease while enjoying the area as a whole. Be sure to check visitor’s guides and magazines to get a discount on this package.
Williamsburg Plantation was really a home away from home. I appreciated the entrance gate although it wasn’t always attended. Nonetheless, I felt completely safe during my stay.
My fully furnished 2 bed/3 bath condo was located in an actual neighborhood setting. Families were walking, kids riding bikes, and then of course, it’s a resort so there’s all the resort amenities. Some resorts look like apartments, but this one did not. It looked like condos… homes.
What’s really made this special is I only paid a total of $325 for my entire 7 night stay. What allowed me to do this is through my lifetime travel club membership. I’ll tell you more about that because I’m sure you want to know how you can do this too, but first, let me show you around the Williamsburg Plantation resort.
We arrived through a gate check and driving up to the main clubhouse is pretty cool. I love the architecture.
There’s a lot of detail paid to manicured landscaping which I appreciate. The resort is very clean and staff was helpful and friendly. Check in was fast and easy. I expected to see a larger reception area because the building is so big, but I quickly discovered, the main building is housing a lot of amenities with plenty of space for guests.
Pretty amenity building; very fitting fora resort called the Williamsburg Plantation.
Landscaping is beautiful around the grounds
After checking in, we headed to our condo. It’s an entire neighborhood so it really feels like a home. You can see how “family neighborhood” it looks.
And… here we are. We will walk through the brown door on the left and head upstairs to the second floor. My bedroom is the big picture window in the brick upstairs.
Williamsburg Plantation: 2 Bedroom Fully Furnished Condo
I had reserved the 2 bedroom condo. I liked that the bedrooms were separated and both had their own bathroom and as you can see the master also shared the water closet with the main area for guests.
Here’s the floor plan and interior pictures of the unit I stayed in. The floor plan below is upper and lower unit. We just had the upper unit.
Master Bedroom at Williamsburg Plantation
Master Bathroom with separate tub and shower. Oddly, there was only one sink and a very long counter. The tub is a jacuzzi tub which I used and was very nice.
Living Areas of Williamsburg Plantation 2 bedroom condo
Below: Living Room / Dining Room combo. The fireplace in the corner was turned on via a switch on the wall. It was more for atmosphere than heat. Still, it was pretty. The furniture was nice quality and color scheme was warm and pleasant.
If you walk about the sliding glass doors to the outside, here’s the view:
Nice little sitting area. It was fun to watch families out tossing the frisbee and football.
Kitchenette area for 2 bedroom condo at Williamsburg Plantation
While the kitchen didn’t offer a range/stove, it did have a countertop electric burner appliance that fit two pots and pans. It worked beautifully. This was my first experience with such an appliance and it was not a big deal not having a full range.
It did have full size refrigerator, microwave, toaster, pots and pans, silverware, dinnerware, cooking utensils, baking dishes, etc. You just need to bring your food and everything to prepare and enjoy it is here. The door down the hall is the front door so what you’re looking at the entry hall.
Second bedroom in 2 bedroom condo at Williamsburg Plantation
Hah… caught my niece in the living areas on camera. Didn’t even know til I loaded this for you. She’s awesome.
Second bedroom’s bathroom has a tub/shower combo.

Williamsburg Plantation Resort Review Comments
The facility was amazing! We stayed in a 2 bedroom room. It was very clean and spacious. It was quiet and you didn’t hear your neighbor. They had at least 3 activities every day by the pool that were family friendly.
We had an updated room. So comfortable! I stay there with my family and/or friends every year. I do NOT have a time share (not looking for one ANYWHERE)…I love this place!!!! Can NOT beat the price. The amenities are great. The staff is fantastic! Location is excellent!
Everything about this place was excellent, so much that before I left I decided I would re-book!! Everything was immaculately clean, staff was very courteous, never heard any noise from any of the other residents (and believe me, it was full) beautiful location and TONS of things for the kiddos to do.
Williamsburg Plantation Perfection Location To Things To Do
There’s so much to do in the Williamsburg area and this resort is right in the middle of whatever direction you want to go. We did so many things, in fact, we did it right.
This was a truly magnificent vacation starting with Farmers Market in Merchant Square in Colonial Williamsburg bright and early on the our first morning and ending at famous Michie Tavern in Virginia to fill our bellies before hitting the road on our way home after visiting Monticello, Thomas Jefferson’s Home.
Our main focus was the Colonial Williamsburg, Jamestown, Jamestown Settlement and Yorktown while in this area. The Williamsburg Plantation Resort is in the middle of these locations. An easy short drive to all.
We did so many things….
I even helped hoist the sails of a Schooner (pictured) on a sunset cruise in the harbor.
There’s many fast foods and eateries just within a few minutes drive, but nothing you can walk to.
Don’t Buy The Williamsburg Plantation Timeshare
Oh, it’s a fabulous property, don’t get me wrong. I’m talking MONEY here.
Purchasing a Williamsburg Plantation timeshare, or ANY timeshare for that matter, is a matter of putting yourself into a long term expensive contract that obligates you to pay expensive annual maintenance fees for years with usage restrictions. Why would anyone want to do that?
Additionally, timeshares, once you buy them, are hard to sell or even give away. Don’t do that to yourself.
So… what’s the solution if you love vacationing in timeshares but don’t want to buy one?
Own a travel club membership. I recommend this one.
I discovered this hidden path to timsheare style vacationing for wholesale using a travel club membership back in 2007. I’ve also discovered that hardly anyone knows about this way of vacationing. It’s really a “back door” into the world of timeshare enjoyment without the cost.
My travel club allows you to stay at these beautiful resorts, over 5,000 worldwide, for anywhere between $398 to $699 for a 7 night stay.
- You don’t have to buy the timeshare.
- You don’t have to sit through a timeshare presentation.
Rather, as a travel club member, you simply log into your travel club membership which is internet based, search for resorts and venues you want to stay at and then reserve your vacation. Easy peasy.
If you travel a lot, love to vacation condo style or like the idea of a timeshare resort but not the cost and upkeep obligations of those, you can’t go wrong with a travel club.
Plus, staying in a fully furnished condo is WAY better than stepping over each other in stuffy and cramped hotels and motels. The beauty of vacationing condo style is to really have a home away from home, lots of space and comfort. It’s like having 5,000 vacation homes but you don’t have to be responsible for them. And when you can enjoy these wonderful weekly stays for that the membership pricing, you’ll find yourself vacationing more and living life more fully, making more family memories and creating for yourself more R&R time.
When you’re done traveling in your life, you can transfer your travel club membership to anyone you want for $75 and one piece of paper. Your membership is good for 100 years.
Williamsburg Plantation: Don’t Pay Retail One Time Use… Instead Pay Wholesale
Another way you can stay at the Williamsburg Plantation is by searching the internet on your typical search engines for travel deals.
What you’ll find (if the resort is available to the public) is that you will be paying retail for your week on a “one time use” because the resort has to pay these search engine providers huge advertising dollars. Let me prove it to you.
I went over to Google real quick to give you an idea of the savings. I found the exact 2 bedroom unit I stayed in for just $325 (taxes included) and compared that to a “one time retail only use” on a popular search engine. I snapped an image so you can see it below. The same room was $1,972 for 7 nights. This was a savings for me of $1,647. That’s a LOT of money savings! That paid for the car rental, gas, admission tickets and food for 3 people.
By the way, normally I pay no less than $398 for these weeks but in the “Member to Member” section of my travel club, I reserved my 7 night stay for just $325. It’s deals like this that cause me to travel more.
I had stayed there just a couple weeks prior, still it was prime vacation time.
My friends, a better way to vacation is to simply own the travel club and then use it for a lifetime paying wholesale weekly pricing ($398-$699). These prices are capped worldwide by the way.

Life your life on vacation my friend!
I was going to put just my headshot for the picture here signing off but couldn’t help myself. Here I am in Colonial Williamsburg, one of my day trips during my stay at the Williamsburg Plantation in a “public humiliation” position that was used back in the day.
Happy travel club member since 2007
