Nestled along the James River, the 425-room Kingsmill Resort is a secluded Southern beauty. New at the property are the four Cottages on the James, three- and four-bedroom accommodations looking out on the water.

The resort's 16,000-square-foot conference center, certified by the International Association of Conference Centers, also overlooks the river, drawing natural light into the rooms. Dining options include Elements 1010, with a menu that changes seasonally, and the James Landing Grille, which features sustainable seafood.

Nearby sites such as the King's Arms Tavern at Colonial Williamsburg and the Continental Army encampment at the Yorktown Victory Center welcome special events.
