Wonderful breakfast to start the day. My husband and I took our 11 year old son to the old city. Great location. Was perfect for us. We stayed in cottage in back. I think I would have enjoyed the room inside more however, being in the cottage outback had its perks. Great place!!

We had comfortable, fun, and relaxing stay at the Cedars. I can describe it as home away from home, with good breakfast cooked for you! Also, warm drinks and cold water available in the breakfast room as you arrive. You can walk from it to the College W&M and to the Williamsburg attractions. A short drive to Bush Gardens where...

We found that The Cedars was a bit tired and our room could use some TLC, especially the bathroom. The public rooms were fine and breakfast was very good on each of the three mornings of our stay. Bob, the owner, was on hand each morning to personally oversee breakfast. His exuberant personality and insistence on taking 'fun' photos at... More

Greeting WeeIrene, Thanks for taking the time to post this review. I am sorry that we didn't meet your expectations. I would have predicted that you were not enjoying the experience while you were with us. As I often say, we are not for everyone.

Great location, lovely staff, and a very homely environment. Love that the breakfast food is homemade and changes daily, and Bob (the owner) was a terrific, engaging host. The two downsides: If you were to stay in the detached cottage which features two suites, you'd have to share the A/C settings with guests in the other suite. What if I... More

Hi MisterLevius, We sincerely appreciate the feedback and perspective. The nature of staying in a 1930 style inn is that some of the amenities are hard wired into the structure. Plumbing, air conditioning and room size are just things that cannot easily be changed without a very large price tag. We have spent over $350,000 over a 13 year period... More

Our two families traveling together stayed in the Cottage, and it was PERFECT. Before I go on to what is right about the Cedars, though, I do have one quibble and one warning. The quibble is that the breakfasts were just average for a B&B and quite redundant for the most part. (the same egg dish and breakfast breads assortment... More

Hi Kathryn, Wow. A very special thanks. We sincerely appreciate all the wonderful feedback and I will make sure everyone at the Cedars sees your comments. You make an interesting point about the Cedars breakfast room. It can seat 10-12 at one time. We can accommodate 22-24 guest when we have a full house. In those cases, we vary our... More

The owners of this home-like B&B treat all their guests as if they are family. We stayed this spring so we got to see their lovely gardens in bloom. The location is very handy for visitng the historic areaa as well as the university.

Fantastic location, easy walking to all main attractions. Lovely garden and beautiful breakfasts, and hosts very friendly and attentive. Most guests not there for business or work but relaxing and celebrating. I needed to work a bit which I did in the dining room which was fine!

Hi Sharyn, So glad you got home safely. We thoroughly enjoyed your company and interaction at breakfast. You've must have told some of your Aussie friends about your trip. We've had 5 others from your country since your visit. I look forward to your next visit to Williamsburg. In the meantime, all the best. Bob More
