“Can't wait to go back!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2013

We stayed 2 nights at this gorgeous Bed and Breakfast. From the moment we arrived, we were treated like family. Cyndi greeted us at the door and asked us to have a seat. She went over suggestions for dinner and things to do and outlined them on the map for us. She told us all about the Inn and where the free wines, sodas, and waters were located.

We stayed in the St. Augustine Grand room. This was the only room downstairs and it was located close to everything. We enjoyed the jetted tub and the porch access. The only thing I would say is not to book this room if you are planning to sleep in (but I don't know why you would want to miss those wonderful breakfasts!!). This room is right beside the dining room so around 8am each morning you could hear the chatter of guests so it wouldn't be good if you are a light sleeper. We didn't mind because there was no way we were missing those breakfasts that Cyndi was cooking! They were AMAZING. You don't want to miss any of them.

At night, we sat on the front porch playing board games and enjoying drinks. We also spent time watching the trollys and tours come by and chatting with other guests who were enjoying the front porch.

We never moved our car once we parked at the B&B. Everything was in walking distance. We had an amazing time and we will be back the next time we are in St. Augustine. I am also going to suggest this to my friends and family. Everything was perfect.

My wife and I just came back from our week long honeymoon at St. Augustine and our stay at the Cedar House Inn. Cyndi, the owner, was so hospitable, and made us legitimately feel like we were at home. When we first arrived she chatted with us about things to do in town, and about the bed and breakfast itself.
At the end of our first day in town, I needed to mail some postcards to loved ones back home, and asked Cyndi where the local post office was located. She offered to mail them out for us. Cyndi really went out of her way to make certain that we were comfortable and that we were enjoying our stay.

Also, the breakfasts there are exceptional! There are no other words to describe it. We were wowed every morning with a breakfast that not only was pleasing to the palate and filling, but was always fresh and beautifully presented as well.

We plan on going back to St. Augustine for an anniversary and will certainly book early in advance to make sure we get to go back to the Cedar House Inn!
I would, without hesitation, recommend this Victorian era Bed and Breakfast to anyone.

My wife and I were looking for a B&B in the St. Augustine Area to celebrate our one year anniversary. After reading all of the reviews on Trip Advisor we decided to stay at The Cedar House Inn.

When we first checked in Cyndi showed us around the Inn and to our room. She also made suggestions about which restaurants to try and which ones to avoid. Since she obviously knew the area well we asked her to make our reservations for us. The restaurants she picked were fantastic and exactly what we wanted.

In Short I would highly recommend the Cedar House Inn for a number of reasons. For one it is a short walk to the downtown area but not in the middle of it. There are several late night bars and organized pub crawls in the downtown area. I can only imagine how noisy it can be. The rooms are great and exactly what I would expect from a Victorian Bed and Breakfast. I especially enjoyed the jetted hot tub that was in our room. (We stayed in the Biscayne) I'm not a big breakfast eater but the breakfasts were amazing. Even the brownies she left out in the afternoon were great. There is always complimentary wine, soda, water, and snacks that are available. And finally Cyndi is always available to give suggestions about restaurants or local activities. My wife and I would never consider staying anywhere else.

PS: If you are a Boston Red Sox fan you should let Cyndi know.

Room Tip: You can't go wrong no matter which room you choose.

This is our second time staying at a B & B in St Augustine. Last year we stayed at the Casablanca which was pricey and noisy. We choose the Cedar House Inn because of the trip advisor rating. We were well please with the accommodations in this Victorian Inn. Cyndi had the grounds and house decorated so beautifully for Christmas. We stayed for two nights and were well taken care of. One morning we had "sweet" pecan Belgium waffles with bacon and a bird of paradise fruit plate and the second morning we had the "savory" quiche with teardrop sausage and a fresh fruit cup with banana nut bread croutons, both of which were delicious.

The Cedar House Inn was the most wonderful and perfect venue for our fall wedding. Every aspect from the beautiful Victorian décor to the absolutely scrumptious breakfasts were impeccable. Cyndi and her staff are phenomenal. The attention to detail, from the obvious to the behind the scenes, were fantastic. The Cedar House Inn is truly a "home away from home" destination. This wasn't our first stay and certainly won't be our last. If you are planning a trip to St. Augustine The Cedar House Inn is the place to stay!!

Room Tip: All the rooms have their own individual charm. It really just depends on what size bed you want. :)

We have returned from spending two days at The Cedar House Inn,the experience was one not to be missed!
Cyndi and her staff are very welcoming and hospitable,nothing is too much trouble.
The ambiance,cleanliness and attention to detail is fabulous.Cyndi is keen to be of assistance and genuinely presents as being keen to help make the experience of St.Augustine a great one from start to finish,be this in her lovely home or eating out etc.
The food at The Cedar House Inn is exceptional and Cyndi will cater for individual needs without hesitation.
Everything is wonderful at The Cedar House Inn, we could go on and on about how much we enjoyed staying there, the lovely rooms, exceptionally comfortable beds and soft bedding, the well presented bathroom, private balcony, complimentary port,wine,soda, home made cookies (we only got one - as soon as they were made thet disappeared ! Our advice - try The Cedar House Inn for yourselves!

We have stayed at B&Bs around the world, and this is one of the best. We arrived a little early, but Cyndi invited us in and gave us lots of great information about St. Augustine. She suggested several restaurants for dinner and made a reservation for us at Collage in Sunday evening - fabulous!!

Everything is over the top at Cedar House Inn - from the room to the common areas to the breakfast. We can certainly understand why Cedar House Inn receives top rating at TA.

The location is perfect. We parked our car when we arrived on Friday and didn't take it our until we left on Monday. It is very close to the tourist area and every restaurant is within walking distance.

Our room was spotless. Our bathroom was small and funky - almost round tub with jets. The only problem was a loose faucet in the sink, but the water was plentiful and hot!!

Cyndi is the pent ultimate hostess. Our weekend was early in the World Series, and Cyndi is a huge Red Sox fan, as were several other guests, so we had lots of exciting conversations.

Our room was right off the dining room and Cyndi advised that it would be quiet. This was true except for Sunday afternoon when several couples were loudly talking in the living area. Sound carried to our room and it was difficult to nap. But for the whole weekend, this was so minor!!

We had the pleasure of observing a wedding happening on Saturday afternoon in the garden. What a wonderful gift for a romantic B&B in a romantic destination! Thank you1!
