Stay in Colonial Splendor with Today’s Top Amenities
Stay in for an indulgent retreat or participate in the myriad possibilities in Blue Ridge and Fannin County.
Just outside Blue Ridge, Georgia is a replica colonial village including exact reproductions of the Wythe House and Wetherburn’s Tavern. Colonial Williamsburg in the North Georgia mountains is yours for the renting.
Guided by Williamsburg architects, the Wythe House and Wetherburn’s Tavern at Inola were built in the 1980s by Mr. Thomas Jones, a Williamsburg aficionado. Developer Rick Skelton has kept the look but modernized resulting in luxury suites with all the amenities one could desire. In fact, if you want to include friends or family, you can rent the entire Wythe House or Wetherburn’s Tavern. The Wythe House mansion sleeps 26 with rooms for riotous entertainment as well as elegant areas for formal and informal gatherings. At Wetherburn’s Tavern, one can charter a suite that will sleep 18 guests. The main floor is cozy enough for family gatherings, or can hold business, wedding, or social events for 125 people.
The Wythe House
History combined with luxury for a distinctive stay
The Wythe House in Williamsburg, Virginia belonged to George Wythe (pronounced “with”), a leader of the patriot movement in Virginia, a delegate to the Continental Congress, and Virginia’s first signer of the Declaration of Independence. The house also served as General George Washington’s headquarters just before the British siege of Yorktown, and French General Rochambeau made the home his headquarters after victory at Yorktown. In 1776, the house accommodated Virginia General Assembly delegate Thomas Jefferson and his family.

We have delicately renovated the house into a B&B
Merriment and conviviality were a specialty of the house at Wetherburn’s Tavern in Colonial Williamsburg. Begun in 1738, the establishment had become so popular that in 1750 its proprietor had built an addition, a great room, to better accommodate his customers.
We have delicately renovated the house into a B&B with a dinning, kitchen, bar and lower terrace areas that contains a movie theater, commercial gym, game room and residence. The main floor is cozy enough for a family gathering, or can hold business, wedding and social events of up to 125 people. The house can be rented in sections or the whole house which can sleep 18 people.

A Historic Cottage adjacent to the Wythe House Mansion
This adorable cottage was built as a copy of the Wythe House’s kitchen. Due to the threat of fire the kitchens were detached in colonial great houses. Normally they were separated by 30-40 feet. This also kept heat from the kitchen away from the main house which was important in the summer. The originator of the estate and village, Mr. Thomas Jones once had colonial cooking sessions here with his friends.
Fully renovated two-story cottage with two bedrooms and a bath upstairs. Both have views of the formal gardens and the pristine woodlands.
On the ground floor sitting room are two massive 17th century cooking fireplaces for the use of guests. Herringbone brick flooring line the main floor. While the kitchens of less wealthy homes had plank floors, those built by the elite were brick. You might even opt for an authentic colonial cooking lesson by our private chef.
