Perfectly quaint bed & breakfast in Williamsburg. We absolutely loved our stay here. It was incredibly charming and intimate and the woman checking us in was extremely friendly and kind. I would love to come back and stay again. We only had a one night stay here but it left a lasting impression. The location is convenient and a short walk to merchant square. If you’re contemplating staying here, you won’t be disappointed!

Wonderful overnight stay at the Cedars Bed and Breakfast! We were greeted by Leroy who showed us around the home and made us feel very welcomed! He provided some great dinner recommendations that were spot on! We stayed on the first floor in the Martha Washington room and George Washington Suite. The suite was perfect for myself and two children as we had a twin bed to use in a separate sitting room. Rooms were clean and very homey feeling. Even being located on the first floor it was quiet and we felt we had the place to ourselves. Breakfast the next morning was great! Unlimited coffee starting at 715 was a plus. The banana bread was fresh and so yummy- if you pleased my kids and parents you did well as they can be picky! We would not hesitate to stay here again and enjoyed the hospitality that went beyond anything we could have imagined! Much better than feeling like just another guest at a chain hotel!

Returning from a family business trip to NY, we stopped over in Williamsburg to see what we could in a day, with the goal of returning later when we had more time. Immersed in Fairfields and Hamptons and Holiday Inns, we thought this venue would be an interesting detour but were cautious as both my husband and I are aging boomers with health issues. We've stayed in many historic B&Bs and survived the challenges that go with the turf, so we weren't expecting much more in Cedars than old timey charm and creakier floors. Did we ever underestimate this one! The host/owner Alex knocked hospitality out of the park! Entertaining and smart conversation and wonderful coffee were reasons enough to return in the near future, and we will!

My husband, another couple, and I visited Williamsburg at the end of the Memorial Day weekend and what a gem we found in the Cedars. Leroy welcomed us when we arrived and graciously showed us our rooms and explained the arrangements. It was great to have a little fridge where we could store a few items we had in our cooler bag and to have newspapers and comfortable lounging spots both inside and out. Both rooms were exactly as advertised. We had rooms on the main floor of the house. They both felt spacious with their high ceilings. I give the owners credit for creating comfortable bathrooms despite space restrictions. I loved having a chair in my room and endulged myself with a little introvert time after our first day before we headed out to dinner. The next morning we had the opportunity to meet Alex who was such a delight--it's truly hard to share adequately. He took the opportunity to get to know us and then shared personal experiences which were both interesting and really humorous. Definitely can imagine standup in his future. We would all highly recommend the Cedars and would revisit again if the opportunity provided.

My husband and I were fortunate to stay at The Cedars Easter weekend while visiting our grandson at William and Mary. We found the owner Alex to be very attentive to our needs , friendly and personable. Leroy was equally hospitable and informative . The breakfasts were pleasingly presented , varied, and tasty. Our grandson joined us Easter morning for breakfast and enjoyed a departure from campus food.The location to the college was great.We were provided with a lovely room on the first floor due to Alexs' .... observation of my limited mobility . The beds were comfortable and the room and bath clean. We will be sure to reserve a room early as they have established a reputation of returnees .......... ourselves now included ! Naomi and Erick

I think this is an absolutely amazing place to stay while in Williamsburg. We traveled as a family of 4… and it’s been a long time since we’ve stayed at a B&B, but we were so happy we got to experience this inn. It is super close to William & Mary. We were able to walk downtown in about 10 minutes, have lunch, see Colonial Williamsburg. The location is amazing. Particularly amazing if you have kids that are at the business school at W&M :) We originally reserved two rooms but the owner suggested that we have two connecting rooms. A great choice (although I would have probably preferred two bathrooms but that’s a minor point). The rooms are very simple and clean. It is very quiet too - we were expecting to hear our neighbors but honestly it was surprisingly quiet. Breakfast was amazing. Alex, the owner, knew that our son was a picky eater so he made sure that there was at least something my son would eat. And he ate everything! In general, the owner was also super accommodating - we arrived before noon and he was already there.. and we were able to get our room even before lunch. One side comment - parking is a little tight but only marginally so. We have a large car and struggled to get in and out a bit - but managed it just fine in the end.

The B&B is cool place with a nice cozy charm. Stayed 1 night in the Martha Washington, very basic, warm, like staying at an old person’s home in the spare bedroom, bathroom was nice, no tv. Breakfast was good, maybe a little skimpy for a 220lb guy, Im sure the owner is saying something snarky while reading this.

We stopped in Williamsburg on our way to Annapolis. We were greeted at The Cedars by Leroy as soon as we stepped out of the car - what a charmer and such a gracious and helpful host. We met the owner, Alex, at breakfast the next morning and what a great breakfast it was and Alex has the cutest personality. We esp loved the history and the location of The Cedars.

My husband and I live in Southern CA & recently embarked on a 13 day road trip from VA to GA - inspired by historical sites and my love of Nicholas Sparks novels! Our 1st stop was Williamsburg and we cannot rave enough about our 3 night stay at the Cedars of Williamsburg Bed and Breakfast!. We stayed in the Patrick Henry room on the 3rd floor. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The highlight of the day throughout our stay was always breakfast when we were greeted by the super friendly (and hilarious) owner, Alex. The food was amazing - Belgian waffles, spinach quiche with baby shrimp & homemade banana bread - were all delicious and beautifully presented. The atmosphere was fun and cozy and we enjoyed mingling with the other guests over breakfast. Alex had one day off while we were there so Leroy took over and we were super impressed with his hospitality, friendliness and great dinner recommendations! If you plan to visit the college or Colonial Williamsburg, I'm not sure you could stay anywhere closer in proximity then Cedars - it was super close to everything. We loved everything about Cedars and hope to make back some day!
