Wedding-Vacation 2013: Powhatan Resort

Just a short one tonight, as there’s not much to say yet. The train to Williamsburg, though long, was relatively uneventful, though Amtrak could do with working on their communication skills when there are delays.

My aunt, my cousin (brother of the bride from the earlier wedding posts), and I left at noon and pulled into Williamsburg around 6:40, slightly earlier then my other aunt, uncle, and cousins, who left earlier and had a shorter travel time (gotta love I-95!). Once there, we headed to our lodging at the Powhatan Resort.

A former plantation, Powhatan now boasts timeshares, but sets some aside as super fancy hotel rooms, which are not that expensive for all they come with.

One thing that hit us all when we got here: the size. This place is very large, with plenty of activities, three pools, golf, and specially-planned activities each day. The rooms are big, too. Ours has two bedrooms and bathrooms, and some kitchen amenities, given its nature as a timeshare.

We’ve only really checked out the pool so far. At night they seem to have 18 and over restrictions on one pool, which is very nice indeed.

Only major thing of note is that my other aunt and husband and sons had a bit of a fight with a skunk, who tried to take some trash left outside their unit. Yep, someone just left their trash sitting on the ground. Who does that??

So, tomorrow marks the first of at least one day of the historical tour of Williamsburg and Jamestown/Yorktown. More on that in the next post.
