My husband and I went to Cedars to celebrate our 2nd wedding anniversary. We stayed in the George Washington room. The room provided enough space for us both to stretch out. Having the TV and a fireplace in the sitting room was great. The bed was comfortable and we both slept very well the two nights we were there. The B&B has the potential to be nice, but it fell short of our expectations. When you’re paying $200+ per night, there is a certain level of service that is to be expected. While the bed was comfortable, the linens has seen better days. Specifically, the quilt that was put on the bed was badly worn along the edges. Not a huge issue, but definitely not great for the price. The biggest issue that we had with our stay was the cleanliness of our room. When we checked in there was still hair in the shower and on the bathroom floor. The armoire where we stored our clothes was extremely dusty. They also have a fake plant in the room that was covered in dust. The floor area underneath the fireplace was also very dusty. It was clear that these areas had been overlooked by the cleaning person. We mentioned these issues to Alex and he promptly had Leroy go in to take care of things. Unfortunately, there was still a lot of dust present afterwards. We didn’t bother to complain again because we only had one more night there and had already decided that we would be one-timers. Breakfast was also a bit disappointing. Having stayed in other B&Bs, we have come to look forward to a delicious breakfast. The first morning we had banana bread, 2 slices of bacon, and eggs. The bread was good, but the rest of the meal left a lot to be desired. The last day they served quiche with shrimp on top and a side salad. It tasted fine, but we weren’t wowed. We also weren’t impressed by the snack selection of chips and mini snickers. Again, we had higher expectations. Fresh fruit and granola bars would have also been a nice touch. Alex is friendly and seems to really enjoy his work. I think more attention needs to be paid to the details. We won’t be returning, but we had an OK stay overall. Again, there’s potential for this place and I hope that the owners read this constructive criticism and make some changes.

We truly enjoyed our one night at this charming establishment. Very comfortable and clean. Alex took great care of us and we highly recommend this experience. It's walkable to the historic area and . . . . has parking! We would absolutely stay here again.

Thank you so much for your kind review! So happy y'all enjoyed our place and it is always great to talk with the guests in the morning about everything from history to vacation plans. Glad I could be of service. And yes we have... parking! One of our place's perks is parking so you won't have to drive all over looking for a spot and - with our proximity to Colonial Williamsburg - you won't even need your car :-) Thank you again for taking the time to review our place and I hope we can have y'all again.

Cedars is a beautiful B&B, fitted out with great attention to period detail and ambiance. For example, the George Washington room is a similar shade of green to one of the rooms at Mt. Vernon. If artistic details are important to you, and you are dreaming of a truly colonial experience, then staying at Cedars would be an extra bonus to your experience in Williamsburg. Alex was a great host; knowledgeable, entertaining and attentive to our needs—so willing to make our experience the best it could be. The breakfasts were very tasty and always provided enough protein to keep us going on those long walks through the historic sights of Williamsburg!

Thank you so much for your kind review and dare I say too kind! I hope we can live up to the hype but of course, I'm thrilled you were satisfied :-) We are certainly in the process of making the home historically appealing to the observant eye. The Cedars was built in the 1930s and so we are attempting to make it feel like a 1930s house trying to be colonial. It's a process that we are gradually seeing to fruition but I'm happy to see you enjoyed it immensely. Glad we could help make your stay in Williamsburg a joy and I trust we can have your company again. Thank you so much!

From the moment we were greeted by the owner, Alex, we were made to feel at home. He took our bags upstairs to our room and gave us a tour of the bed and breakfast. It was absolutely beautiful. The pictures and video from the website did not do The Cedars justice. Our accommodations were amazing and the beds were so comfortable! Before dinner, we wanted to have a bottle of wine and Leroy helped us to enjoy it on the gazebo around back. Leroy was so friendly and accommodating. Alex recommended a wonderful restaurant for dinner that evening and it did not disappoint us! Breakfast the next morning was made by Jennifer and it was delicious! When returning to the Williamsburg area, we will definitely be staying at The Cedars bed and breakfast again!!

Thanks so much for your kind review! I love when guests had a good enough time that they take the time to review us but it pleases my heart even more when they mention us by name! That's the kind of personal connection we absolutely love to garner. LeRoy gives his best as well. He - like I - enjoyed talking with y'all. Thank you so much for enjoying and experiencing Williamsburg with us. I trust we were able to add to the mystique of the place and make it shine brighter. Thanks!

Great location across from William and Mary College. Close to Old Colonial Williamsburg. The breakfast each morning was amazing! Alex, the owner was friendly, full of information and very hospitable! Leroy was great helping to explain everything upon check in and making sure everything was just right. The rooms were adorable and clean. Highly recommend staying here!
