Loved stepping back in time along with the small town atmosphere. Quaint, lovely and just 20min away from Orlando attractions -- we left Orlando early to get back to window shopping, coffee houses, micro brewery, ice cream parlors: a piece of America

My experience at Edgewater

Unique Building

A unique 1920s hotel that is worth the stay. Next to a 22 mile bike/running path in a quaint town.

A Step Back in Time

Located in scenic Winter Garden, the hotel itself is historic and you can ask any staff member and they will be happy to share it's rich history with you. From the area's oldest manual elevator, to the hardwood flooring in the halls, to the design of the individual guest room, everything about the Edgewater Hotel is a throwback to days gone by. A delicious included breakfast, that is cooked-to-order, rounds out a most unique stay in one of the most unique B&B's around.

Great town, great hotel, great restaurants

Edgewater is a lovely older hotel that occupies the second floor of a historic building in the quaint town of Winter Garden. We enjoyed staying there and meeting some of the staff. I would love to visit them again when we travel back to Florida.

2 Days in Winter Garden

3.4 on March 22, 2012

Having a couple of days to fill in prior to heading to the beach, we chose the Edgewater based on the price and the location. The historic community was great, with fun shops and restaurants to visit within a few blocks of the hotel. The Edgewater hotel was charming and historic as advertized. The experince there was acceptable and we would likely stay there again if we were to visit the area. You should not expect luxury accomodations and the breakfast, while made to order, was just OK. The place was not exceptionally clean, but not discusting either. All in all we enjoyed our stay, just keep your expectations realistic for this type of a facility. The staff was very nice and helpful.

An Evening at Edgewater

3.8 on February 25, 2012

My wife and I stayed at the Edgewater Hotel for one night before heading out on our honeymoon. The rooms were immaculately clean, the hotel had a wonderfully historic atmosphere, and the included breakfast was delicious. We found the birds in cages charming, and were blown away by the piano player in the lobby. (Not sure if he was a guest or employee.) There is really only one complaint: With absolutely no exaggeration the water-temperature swung between scalding and ice-cold roughly every 30 seconds. The "hot" and "cold" knobs were more suggestions than controls. To be fair, though, we assumed that this was because the building is older than the vampire LeStat (who may have been roaming the hallways). An extremely accommodating staff and a quaint location rounded out our brief but enjoyable stay. All in all, we would definitely stay again.

We had a wonderful time. The decor was second to none. Our room was the Honeymoon Sweet which overlooked the city square. We made new friends at the breakfast table which was custom made to our liking. I highly advise anyone who enjoys early 1900's decor and furniture to stay here. The only issue is that the town cock is right outside the B&B and chimes every 15 minutes. So if you want to sleep in, I would not recommend a room towards the front of the building.
