“Not your ordinary place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2014

Stayed for a week while on vacation (beach, universal (~20 minutes), Disney (~30 minutes)) Had two rooms (one with two beds for kids) separated by a bathroom. Customer service / personal touch is above and beyond. Enjoyed the breakfast each morning. Older venue but well taken care of by four families that live on site. Would recommend and stay again. Family friendly and very comfortable. Large dining table for breakfast meant that you had opportunity to meet other guests / staff and get ideas on what to do / see in the area. Have stayed in other BBs and felt this one was somewhere between a Hotel and a traditional BB given the layout of the rooms and common area. Multiple restaurants within easy walking distance. Landromat within walking distance was ideal for our longer stay/ beach with kids. Some noise if you have a room that faces the street verses the inner courtyard but not continuous or significant. Winter Garden well connected to Orlando and most anything you want to do via the expressways. Iowa City, Iowa.

My wife and I have enjoyed staying here several times. It's a great place for a quick and relaxing get away. The staff is always so nice and helpful. The location is great. We always enjoy the farmers market on Saturday morning only a block away. We also had enjoyed the City's free Blues & BBQ event.

We stayed one night while on a bicycle tour. Check in was easy and they do a thorough job of explaining all the unusual aspects of their wonderful hotel. They have done an excellent job of restoring the building and rooms to like they were when it first opened. There is a dining room with coffee, water and shacks. Breakfast at a large table shared with other guests so you get to have fun stories. Breakfast is cooked to order from a menu. The let us park our tandem bicycle in the lobby. The location is just across the street from all the good restaurants in Winter Garden.

The hotel is similar to a European Bed and Breakfast. It is a refreshing change from nondescript modern hotels and motels. It is quirky and old fashioned, but you will be made so welcome that it will feel like home. You can wander into the dining/ lounge and help yourself to drinks and snacks and don't feel confined to your room. Breakfast is eaten at a large table with other guests and is the best breakfast we have had in the States. Spotlessly clean and run by wonderful people. Winter Garden is a good location for a break and is especially good if you like to cycle.

Room Tip: Go for your budget. We were on cycling holiday so wanted cheapest. It was still great

We had a lovely one night stay in the refurbished 1920s Edgewater Hotel B and B. Our plan was to celebrate a birthday at the Chef's Table without having a longish drive home after dinner. We found the service kindly and hospitable and overall the stay was good. The elevator was a fun experience. We used it checking in and out but otherwise the stairs were no problem.
Our room, the Anniversary Room in the front overlooking
West Plant Street, was very quiet. Other reviewers complained about the noise. But the windows are now doubled pane. You can hear the difference in the bathroom where the window there has a single pane . Easy to shut the door between the two. The night we stayed someone was singing and playing guitar outside by the gazebo. Although I could hear him from the bathroom, I couldn't hear anything from the bedroom.
During our stay Central Florida was experiencing a cold spell. The hostess told us that room has a guest thermostat for AC, but the central heat is controlled by staff. She pointed out a small electric heater on the vanity which we could control. It made the room very cozy on a cold evening but I wish we had awakened to shut it off. Even my cold sensitive spouse complained the room was too hot by morning. Breakfast was pleasant and the parakeets in the sitting area across from the breakfast room added to the ambience. The lobby is a treat to view with its big fireplace, old fashion desk and access to an ice cream parlor. If you're as lucky as we, someone will be playing the lobby piano during your visit. Nice to see some older Florida buildings, like the Edgewater Hotel being lovingly restored and put to use.

I spent the weekend at the Edgewater Hotel with a friend and would highly recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to get away to a beautiful quaint town. The hotel employees were so pleasant to talk with and extremely helpful. I felt like I was in a place of tranquility and surround by generous, loving people. Their knowledge of the hotel and surrounding areas was impressive and they could not do enough for us

Thank you Edgewater Hotel employees for a fantastic stay at your wonderful home.
