We stayed at the Cedar House B&B for my daugther's wedding 1/11/11. It is a lovely old Victorian house beautifully converted to a B&B. We took the whole place for the wedding.It was decorated for a Victorian Christmas with lovely ornaments and spray of pine every where. Our hostess, the owner ,was very hands on and treated us all like family. Every room has special touches and is different and unique. William and Kate could not have been treated better. There are sumputous beds and jacuzzi baths in every room. My daughter, the bride , was treated like a princess. The atmosphere is wonderful with a cozy sitting room and board games with wine always available for the guests. The breakfasts were unbelievable,( i unfortunately gained weight) with Cedar Inn french toast and fresh fruit ,delicious coffee and a quiet atmosphere. It was lovely to walk about St Augustine taking pictures of the ancient buildings and so nice to come back to a delicious cup of gourmet cocoa or coffee after our sightseeing. The staff was especially talented. When we had difficulty getting the bride in to her very complicated antebellum dress a helper was there to solve all our problems. She figured out the yards of lace and chiffon and placed the veil just right. It was very comfortable inside and out even though the weather was a bit chilly. We all felt the warmth of the Cedar House and the staff. The minister who was recommended by our hostess was very charming and performed a ceremony which moved all in attendance. The food arranged by our hostess was excellent and never ending! Everyone was very pleased and it was a wonderful start for the young couple. The only thing i would say is it is not for very large affairs, ours was a small wedding with just close friends and family. If you need alot of room for your dress and attendants this may not be the right venue. But for us it was beautiful! My husband and I will be back to renew our vows soon. Everyone at the wedding I spoke with said they would be coming back for a visit . Our friends Craig and Greg told me they would be back to renew their vows in style at the Cedar House since their marriage in NYC. Thanks for the wonderful time Cedar House don't change a thing!
