Kingsmill Resort is for Families

Posted on: August 17th, 2016 by
In full disclosure, we were provided with accommodations at Kingsmill Resort in Williamsburg, Virginia. We appreciate their support of Jersey Family Fun.  As usual all opinions are my own.

Have more than 2 children? Have a big family?

 

Kingsmill Resort is ready for you!

 

One of our biggest concerns traveling as a family is always will our hotel room have enough room for us. I know it’s a concern for many of our readers. The standard hotel room with 2 beds can be a tight fit when I am traveling with my husband and 3 boys. We were so happy to know that the Kingsmill Resort was arranging a 2 bedroom condo for us. While we had some idea of what to expect, we weren’t really sure. Sometimes you aren’t until you get there. It’s part of the reason we show you so many pictures. We know our readers need to see it to believe it.

We were blown away by the size of the gorgeous Kingsmill Resort 2 bedroom condo. Not only does this condo arrangement provide you with a full kitchen, living room, and a dining room; you can potentially sleep up to 8 or sometimes more. In fact with the Snores & Smores program Kingsmill Resort staff will set up a kids tent in your living room and leave behind kits to make microwave smores. The tent is then yours to take home and make more memories.

This tent souvenir from the Kingsmill Resort Snores & Smores program has come in very handy. We’ve used it multiple times for on the beach day time camp outs.

 

A Kingsmill Resort 2 bedroom condo is perfect for a family with multiple children and adults. We’ll tell you more about the room details below, but with that full kitchen and dining table, families can keep dining costs affordable by cooking in their room. Kingsmill’s family fun packages make family vacations easy as well. Packages can include tickets to nearby attractions like Colonial Williamsburg, Busch Gardens, and Water Country USA, but we warn you you are going to want to make sure you plan a stay that includes enough time to enjoy all those attractions and the Kingsmill Resort itself. While we had a lot of fun…. we definitely didn’t give ourselves enough time to enjoy everything.

 

Kingsmill Resort’s location in Williamsburg, Virginia made it a great spot for a special surprise family reunion. My sister and her family live in North Carolina. We don’t get to see them nearly enough, but this trip south was a wonderful opportunity to get together. When we arrived we quickly unpacked our groceries and took off for the pool. I couldn’t wait for my boys to see her boys.

 

Catching up with cousins, Kingsmill Resort was a great destination for a family reunion.

Our families spent time catching up at the pools, having a game of ping pong in the game room, touring Colonial Williamsburg, and playing games in our Kingsmill room.
