This summer my husband’s family met for a 10 day family reunion in Williamsburg, Virginia. We do these get-togethers every two years as he and his four siblings live in five different states. Each reunion is held at a different property in the Club Wyndham timeshare collection and this year we stayed at Wyndham Governor’s Green.
We have stayed in about fifteen different Wyndham properties over the years, and found that Wyndham Governor’s Green did not disappoint. The two bedroom units were spacious and clean with updated furnishings and fixtures. They were equipped as you usually find in Wyndham properties, with a whirlpool tub in the master suite, a washer and dryer inside the unit and a fully equipped kitchen. Also of note was the friendly front-desk staff when we checked in. There is nothing like some sweet tea in the lobby and gracious staff to make you realize that you are entering the south, even if you are just a couple of hours from Washington, D.C.
This resort has two outdoor pools and one indoor pool. The larger outdoor pool also has the indoor pool adjacent to it, a children’s pool and two hot tubs (one indoor and one outdoor). The exterior of the resort was undergoing some repairs, but none of the work interfered with our plans or interrupted us in any way. Otherwise, the grounds were beautiful, and all of the kids (young and old alike) enjoyed the ducks and frogs that visited the pond outside our villas on a daily basis.
But perhaps the best part of Wyndham Governor’s Green is the location. This was our second visit
to Williamsburg and we enjoyed it even more than the first time. The “Historic Triangle” includes the historic areas of Williamsburg, Jamestown (the site of the first English settlement in North America) and Yorktown (where the British surrendered following the Revolutionary War). For history buffs, there might be no better place to vacation (in fact, we think this area should be on the required travel list for all Americans). We certainly enjoyed trekking through the historic sites and learning so many interesting facts about the first settlers and also about Colonial America.
If history isn’t your thing, Williamsburg is also home to Busch Gardens and Water Country USA. Busch Gardens is a theme park with European flair, filled with over 50 roller coasters, rides and other thrill-seeking attractions. Water Country USA has more than 40 waterslides and is the largest outdoor waterpark in Virginia. And if traffic cooperates, Virginia Beach and Norfolk are less than 90 minutes away. All in all, there is really no excuse to say you are bored when you are in the Williamsburg area, there is just too much to see and do – even during a 10 day trip! Needless to say, we look forward to returning again to Wyndham Governor’s Green.
