The pride and joy of this development, though, is the huge 25,000 square foot Heritage Clubhouse. It houses restaurants, a billiards room, a grand ballroom, an arts and crafts room, a woodworking shop, a card room, a lounge and a library with computers.

Williamsburg is really two towns. The central district, Colonial Williamsburg, is all about historical tourism and is a magnificent living history museum. Costumed re-enactors stroll through lush grounds, 80 original 18th-century structures and dozens of reconstructed buildings. Colonial America is vividly brought to life. In contrast, the western residential neighborhoods where tourists rarely venture are tree canopied, safe, quiet and prim.
Sentara Williamsburg Regional Medical Center has 145 beds and is accredited by the Joint Commission.

Why are HOA Fees So High in 55+ Communities?
HOA fees (homeowner association fees) come in a wide range, and each 55+ community has a different set of guidelines for determining its HOA fees. Generally, the more amenities, the higher the fee. And often older communities have higher fees because as a development ages, maintenance costs increase. Most communities have bylaws stating how high HOA fees can be raised each year. When looking for a 55+ community, always ask about the fees. How much are they? What do they cover? How many increases have there been in the last 10 years? If the developer or sales staff will not tell you, visit on a Saturday when people are out and about and ask a resident or two about the HOA fees.
