I've never before slept in a bed I had to actually climb into, but that's what I did here. The rooms were beautifully appointed and the whole house felt like it had gone back in time--except for the modern appliances (the "necessaries"). I took away one star for dining because breakfast is the only meal served, but every day it offered something different and delicious. Delicious cookies in the afternoon and fresh coffee whenever you wanted it (thanks to the Keurig coffeemaker) were most welcome after a day of walking. Be ready to have your picture taken by owner Bob Tubbs--and used in a most charming way.

My husband booked our room at the Cedars for a trip to Williamsburg for an event I was taking part in. It was wonderful. The staff was friendly, gracious, and accommodating. Bob knew we would be out in the wee hours of the morning for my race and made certain to leave me supplies for a pre race meal. We went out for the morning and on our return we were greeted with a heartfelt "Welcome home" from the staff. This is far warmer and more inviting than the cursory nod or "Good Afternoon" one might receive at a large hotel--if in fact one is acknowledged in a large system. The breakfast we enjoyed was absolutely delicious and I found Bob to be warm and engaging with all of the guests. I adored the decor and grounds, very well kept and immaculate! I personally cannot wait for another reason to stay at The Cedars when in Williamsburg. I only live an hour away, but sometimes the change of scenery and historic venues are a great day spent. Not having to drive back home immediately would make a trip like that more fun.

A special thanks to a fellow triathlete. Congratulations on your performance in the Rev3 event. We appreciate your kind words and will also look forward to a return visit.

We arrived late the first day but were immediately greeted. The staff member made dinner reservations for us and even altered their restaurant offerings so we could have a romantic dinner on Easter. Our host was very friendly and made sure we were having a great time. The room was nicely decorated and quiet but the biggest perk was being able to easily walk to Colonial Williamsburg. Loved it here and would definitely come back.

The one night getaway was a sweet surprise from my husband so we could celebrate our anniversary. We loved the room (top floor) and I am picky about comfy beds. Their bed was VERY comfortable. Would have liked an extra quilt though as we got a little chilly. a light on or near the vanity table in bathroom would be nice touch. Loved the fireplace but did not discover it til morning. Helped take chill out while we dressed for breakfast. Now best part was breakfast. the coffee, gourmet cuisine, the spoil me rotten great service.. and then the fun photos of everyone. incredible!!! we LOVE The Cedars and its wonderful owner Bob..
Risposta del proprietario
Hey you photobombers! We sincerely appreciate the great review and feedback about the light. There is an extra quilt in the vanity. We should have mentioned that to you. All of our rooms are rated at the honeymoon level...good, solid furniture. I mentioned that one morning at breakfast and one of our guest said to his wife, "I want to be the guy who rates the furniture!" We look forward to a future visit real soon. Thanks for taking the time to post this very much appreciated review on our behalf.

We have spent two nights, March 13, 14, 2014, at The Cedars, with friends who had been there before...our favorite room was the living room (sorry Bob) with the fire place glowing.....we had our coffee before breakfast and a late evening rest, before retiring....and yes, the breakfast, was not only really delicious...but Bob, owner and host, was always available to fill our coffee cups, take away our dishes and just generally, entertain us....OK, Bob, does this qualify us for a free B/B when we return on the week between Christmas and New Years....it was a grand (as my grandmother would say) time.....xoxo Dick and Dean Baldwin, Frederick, Md.

Hey you two. Thanks for the paid political endorsement! It was great having you four at the Cedars. You are all a hoot. Love the photobombing the following morning. We look forward to your holiday visit. Wait until you experience Christmastown at Busch Gardens. All the best. Bob & Grace & Staff

B&B's are my favorite home away from home to stay when we travel! Cedars was just that, warm and comfortable, clean and cozy! Cedars is within walking distance, about 10-15 minutes, to Historic Williamsburg. We walked to town, enjoyed the sites, events, and dinner at the the Great Trellis Restaurant. Then we walked back 'home' to Cedars to enjoy the fresh made chocolate chip cookies and cider by the lit fireplace...Ahhh and Yum! Thanks to Bob Tubbs and his gracious staff we had a lovely weekend and Great Breakfasts...gonna make the baked Oatmeal recipe from Cedars web site!

What a charming place, and we have never been welcomed so warmly! If you are a light sleeper or are bothered by a lack of privacy, however, you might choose another room than the Patrick Henry. The bathroom has a thin (locked) door that once opened to the hallway and one feels that he or she has company there. Spend a few more dollars for an upgrade to one of the other much nicer rooms. This one should be their bargain room, but it is still quite pricey. The room is tiny, but quite pretty, and the bed is comfortable, with silky smooth sheets. Otherwise, we were made to feel so welcome by the hospitable and good-humored host. Hot cider and cookies were waiting when we arrived, and breakfast was excellent...and memorable. I would gladly stay there again...just in another room!

What is wrong with waking up everyday and having wonderful guests to interact with. We enjoy it and appreciate the support over the last 11 years. We can't wait for your next visit. PS. We ask about the TVs every two years or so through surveys and the consistent feedback is not to put them in the rooms. Surprised us too.

Found The Cedars on line and could not be happier after our two-night stay. Rooms are quaint and breakfast is fantastic. Bob, Grace and their staff were inviting, friendly, and quite accommodating. We drove through a strong storm to get to Williamburg and it was great to be met at the front door by Darren who was extremely polite and courteous. If we ever make it back to the area, we will definitely stay at The Cedars.

I have stayed at the Cedars three times over the past 3 and a half years, and I have never been disappointed. We have visited twice during the summer, and most recently, during the Christmas Holiday. The rooms are charming, and quite comfortable. Breakfast is delicious, and the staff make the guests feel like family. The location couldn't be better as it is within walking distance to Colonial Williamsburg, and just a short drive from Busch Gardens. The Cedars' host is always willing to give advice and tidbits of information about what to do and see.

I have now been staying at The Cedars for several years and each time it only gets better. I walk in the front door and it is like "coming home". Innkeepers and Staff are above what you would expect; attention to detail, embrace you as "family" and the invitation to "come back soon" is sincere. Food is exceptional and the location of the B-n-B to Colonial Williamsburg is THE BEST. A visit to Williamsburg would not be complete without a stay at The Cedars.

We had a great two nights staying here. Breakfast was much better than I had anticipated and I'm actually going to use some of the recipes. The location is close to Merchant Square and the restored area of Williamsburg (just 1/2 mile away). The house is nicely furnished and my only wish would be a little larger bathroom (but they have what you expect to find in a historic home). Bob was a great host in the morning and provided lots of extras. Very happy we stayed here.

This was our first time to stay at the Cedars of Williamsburg Bed & Breakfast and we would definitely recommend this Inn to others staying in the area! The proximity to Historic Williamsburg and dining was extremely convenient. Our family booked three rooms at the Inn. The Captain John Smith Suite on the second floor was very comfortable. The hospitality and personalized attention extended to our family by the owners, Bob & Grace, and their staff was exceptional! We felt like we were visiting in a friend’s home. The photos and video that Bob shot during our visit created a truly unique and memorable birthday celebration weekend!

We had never stayed at a B&B before and now we will not stay in anything else. The Cedars set the bar really high for any others though. Breakfast was rediculously delicious. Grace and Bob go out of there way to accomodate and I am pretty sure "no" is not a part of their vocabulary. So very recommended! - Jenny

This is the only place in williamsburg that my wife and I stay at when we come in the fall - the Lord Botetourt Suite is by far our favorite (has an in-room fireplace that is awesome)!

We stayed here for our anniversary and have to say it was one of the best weekends away we have had.

This beautiful old home is filled with gorgeous antiques and the decor is splendid. It was the most relaxing place we have ever stayed in. Everyone was very helpful in providing us with shopping and site-seeing recommendations including directions. Our stay was quiet, private and extremely accommodating.

You'll not find a more beautiful home or more gracious hosts anywhere......

The Cedars was very helpful even before we arrived. We booked our stay through an online service and had a question about arriving late which we posted. We then reserved another date through a different online service. The Cedars called back in response to our question and when I asked about the second reservation, they had not received it and took it upon themselves to track it down and then call us back to verify that we were indeed booked for both stays. Once we got there, the staff, service and rooms were great. We liked the personal touches and the picture as a momento. The food was outstanding and loved that they posted the recipes on their website. Our children thought the beds were "comfy-soft". We will definately recommend a stay to family and friends. We will also be back. Thanks Bob ,Grace and all.

The Cedars was the perfect place for our 24 hour getaway. It was within walking distance to Merchant's square, the outlets, and the historic ambiance of Williamsburg, but also bike paths of varying distances. The grounds and rooms were welcoming and comfortable. Breakfast was prepared with some of Grace's favorite recipes that were healthy and unique. We maybe lingered a little longer than necessary but enjoyed visiting with Bob and Grace who made you feel as welcome as long time friends. Thank you for a special birthday! Chris and Mary

Stayed with my teenage daughter during a visit to an information session at William and Mary for prospective students. The George Washington Suite was a perfectly delightful experience. I would recommend it even more for couples celebrating a wedding or anniversary, for the atmosphere is charming and romantic. An elegant and well-furnished common room provides a perfect place for reading and conversation. Breakfast was hearty and delicious, and we also enjoyed the coffee, hot chocolate, and other treats always on offer in the breakfast room. Finally, our host and the cook provided friendly and stimulating conversation: they make their guests feel welcome and important. In short, the Cedars is a treasure; it reminds me how much I miss living in Virginia...and how much I wish to go back!

Once you meet Bob and Grace, you do not forget them! Bob is one of the friendliest, funniest people I have had the pleasure of meeting and Grace is a wonderful woman who takes it all in stride. She and Bob have a wonderful teasing relationship that my husband and I found quite familiar and they truly made our stay spectacular. We stayed in the Peyton Randolph room and were very pleased. The room is beautiful and warmly decorated with a fireplace that gives it a romantic glow. The room was set apart from the main house so it was very private, however there was an overnight groundskeeper next door if we needed anything. Breakfast was a delight with my husband begging Grace for her recipes, and they were very accommodating with our early departure. We truly enjoyed our experience and look forward to a return visit! Our own inn pamphlets personalized with our picture on them was a nice touch!

The only thing I was unhappy with is the lack of hot water. I was not able to take a shower in the mornings, especially before I left. I guess you have to get up very early! I did miss a TV in my room though also, not as much for me, but for my husband. He watches it while I'm getting ready when we're going out! Other than that, it was beautiful!!
Risposta del proprietario
We sincerely appreciate you taking the time to review the Cedars. Your feedback makes it possible for us to improve our guest services. Thank you. If you were in a third floor room, the hot water tanks are located in the basement. It takes a few minutes of letting the water run for the hot water to get to the third floor rooms, especially if you were up early...being the first one to request hot water. We are constantly evaluating the TV topic. A majority of our guests tell us they appreciate no televisions in the rooms because it gives them a chance to talk, read a book or just relax without the distraction of TVs. There has been a time or two when folks have opted not to stay with us because of the TV thing but that is few and far between. We are very happy that you enjoyed your visit. We are very lucky to have wonderful guests and enjoy very much being your host for your Williamsburg visits. We look forward to your next trip and will make sure it is a good one. Happy New Year and have a wonderful 2011. Sincerely, Bob & Grace & Staff

Fantastic location to explore Williamsburg and William and Mary. Room was delightful with antiques and a comfortable, high 4-post bed. Only "negative": the sink, set very low, was a struggle for my husband. But I thought it added to the charm. Breakfasts were delicious, and our host, Bob, not only offered us ideas/help for travel, restaurants, etc., but he was full of stories and was quite entertaining. A very personable, warm and cozy place to stay.

My husband and I have been staying in B&B/Inns since our honeymoon 28 years ago, from New England to Natchez. The Cedars staff was attentive and very friendly and the Inn was spic and span clean, with lovely flowered grounds and tastefully decorated interiors. Our beds were extremely comfortable. In my experience, a B&B/Inn makes its mark in the quality of the details. The rooms we had for two nights were not as pictured on the website. Our bed and spread were different and the other room had a spread of much lower quality. The prices listed on the individual room page had not been updated to current charges. Family members staying upstairs told us later that they could clearly hear conversations in the next room coming from the air register. A guest in that other room also told me the same thing! The Inn is almost a mile from the Visitor Center. The breakfast was well-planned but not remarkable, however,the coffee was great! Updating the website would help greatly. Hiring a better cook would also help. After so many great reviews, I was surprised to be disappointed. I am easy going and hate to complain but I felt I had to be honest.

Obviously we are sorry to hear about these disappointments. It is unfortunate that these observations were not brought to my attention. We have and will take corrective action when situations occur. To my knowledge, there are no shared air vents between rooms. I am very familiar with the internal workings of the house. The walls and ceiling are plaster. Noise has not been a complaint in the past. It is curious that other guests were queried about these failings and they to did not mention any issues. The Cedars is located 3 blocks from Merchant Square, the main commerce and shopping area of Colonial Williamsburg. Nothing in Williamsburg is "near" the visitor center, that is why we suggest walking to Merchant's Square and taking the bus shuttle to the Visitor's Center. The non-matching spreads may have been due to the fact that we regularly dry-clean spreads and this particular day, the match was at the dry cleaner...although I've never had anyone complain about spreads not matching. Breakfast is our time to shine and we make every effort to do so. No guest ever gets the same dish, no matter how long the stay. We account for every dietary need for each meal...including vegan, vegetarian, etc. Our cooking staff adheres to the receipes that are in the kitchen along with side dishes. The receipe selection comes from years of tweeking and refining guest's feedback. Many who return, request certain dishes and definately use the receipes we post regularly on our website. I do need to update the printed materials in the room, although our website and Facebook pages get daily attention. Finally, we do everything we can to make our guest's stay memorable and enjoyable. We are not for everyone but appreciate the opportunity to receive feedback to improve the Cedars experience. Please accept our thanks and appreciation for your feedback and we will work on the items you have share with us. Have a wonderful summer.

It was a really nice stay. This was our first real bed and breakfast experience. The people that worked there were very nice and informative. I was a little disappointed there was no tv in our room. It was very clean and comfortable. The price was a little on the high side, but over all a wonderful experience.

Returning visitors to Williamsburg, we decided to stay at The Cedars in Williamsburg. Bob & Grace, the Innkeepers, could not be more hospitable and served a wonderful breakfast each morning. We stayed 4 nights in the Lord Botetourt suite in the cottage and it was cozy and comfortable! Look forward to going back!

My wife and I stayed in the Lord Botetourt Suite in the cottage, and it was beautiful. The fireplace made it nice and cozy, and of course the room was beautiful. Whil everything about the accommodations were great, our hosts made the visit unforgettable. Victoria (night manager) welcomed us and made sure that we had everything we needed. But Bob Tubbs (co-owner) steals the show. Bob is everything you can ask for in terms of hospitality. He was great at the breakfast service, but more than that his engaging personality made us feel right at home with himself and the other guests. Bob and Grace run a wonderful B&B. Did I mention the Creme Brulee French Toast?

My husband and I both thouroughly enjoyed our stay at the Cedars. Everyone was extremely hospitable, helpful, warm, friendly, outgoing and kind.

We are sharing this information with all our friends and family up here in Canada and we hope to return again in the near future.

We loved the Cedars! Grace & Bob were so welcoming. We stayed in the Peyton Randolph and loved the privacy of the cottage, the bed was extra cozy and I'm very picky about bedding. I was able to get a tour of all the rooms and I have to say no matter what room you pick at the Cedars you will be very pleased with your choice.

We really loved the Cedars! Our room was lovely - beautifully decorated, clean and spacious, we had the “George Washington Suite”.

The last few years my wife and I have stayed at several B & B in and around VA, PA, NC and GA. The Cedars of Williamsburg definitely ranks up there in our top five. The rooms are very comfortable, food is absolutely delicious, and Bob, Grace and the rest of the staff couldn't be more friendly. Everyone makes all the guests feel warm and welcome. Bob is very humorous and even if your a grouch he will make you laugh. This was our second stay there, and everything was still outstanding just like the first time we stayed. We will definitely be going back, again and again. Our goal is to stay at least one night in each of the rooms so we can win the sleep around contest.

My wife and I recently returned home after a wonderful trip to Williamsburg, Va. Having been to Charlottesville, Va. last year, we wanted to return to Virginia to soak up more early american history. We certainly accomplished our goal, but another memorable part of our trip was our stay at the Cedars B and B. Our warm and hospitable hosts were owners Bob and Grace Tubbs. Part of our vacation was a celebration of our 40th anniversary, and having viewed the several beautiful rooms on line, we selected the Christopher Wren Suite, a lovely quiet room on the top floor with a colonial king size bed, private bath and wireless internet connection. As we entered our room we were greeted by an eight by ten framed picture of my entire family that I had e-mailed at the request of our gracious hosts. Each day began with a delicious full breakfast, friendly and informative conversation and the opportunity to meet a variety of interesting people. Cedars is only a seven minute walk to the Colonial Village and it is a great way start a day of exploration and discovery as well as returning for a peaceful rest before going to dinner or an evening activity at the village. We look forward to returning to Cedars, and have already recommended it to our friends and family. L.Hindell--New York May, 200

We really loved the Cedars! It was a beautiful place, both inside and out! Our room was lovely - beautifully decorated, clean, and spacious enough for 3 of us. The location was perfect - just down the street from the main Williamsburg area. The food was delicious and you could either keep to yourself at an individual table or join in a conversation with anyone in the dining room. And we especially enjoyed the hosts - Bob and Grace - and the others who worked there, as they treated us just like family! It was a really special stay, and we'd recommend it to anyone who is looking for a Bed & Breakfast in Williamsburg.

My husband and I celebrated our 15th wedding anniversary and stayed at The Cedars of Williamsburg Bed and Breakfast. We had a wonderful experience! The Inn was absolutely gorgeous, Bob & his staff were most gracious and accommodating! The trip was a complete "surprise" for me. My husband, with Bob's assistance, planned our itinerary and the entire trip was fabulous. The food was awesome; the gazebo outback provided a quiet, romantic setting while my husband and I enjoyed a glass of wine! Treat yourselves and visit the Cedars of Williamsburg!

Great location...across William and Mary College and just a stone throw away from Colonial Williamsburg. Breakfast was great...the peach cobbler is to die for! However, the room is a bit small and we hear the people noises coming from the outside, the couple below our room, and especially the kids spending a night out at the church next to the B&B place. The innkeepers, Grace and Bob, were very welcoming and did verything to make our wedding annivesary a memorable one.

The location of this B&B is the best and the food and atmosphere is the best. I recommend trying this one if you are debating on where to stay. You will not be disappointed.

We loved staying at the Cedars of Williamsburg B&B immediately following our son's wedding & reception. It was a great place to be pampered after days of seeing to the bride's & groom's needs.

We will be planning on staying again!

The pleasure of being at The Cedars over Labor Day was EVERYTHING and more that I desired in the weekend. Breakfasts to rave about, being waited on with attention and details to where I would have thought I was the only guest, plus new friendships made. A wedding took place on September 1st that gave all guests a reason to applaud the Happy Couple the next morning. If you are looking for a classic wedding package done "just right" The Cedars is the location to book. Guests chatted in a comfortable manner with one another; we felt that we were "at home" as we gathered in the living room at night to reflect on our adventures of the day. The rooms fully decorated in the manner of Colonial and is the perfect setting for Williamsburg. Comfortable, exceptionally detailed in everything from bedding, towels and chocolates in the rooms. Conversations among guests to meet next Labor Day at The Cedars is a confirmed witness of the enjoyable accommodations that can be found within this BEYOND EXCELLENT Bed and Breakfast. WARNING: Be prepared to be spoiled!

We really loved staying here. Our room(The Christopher Wren) was just beautiful. Great King size bed and lovely furniture. We were just so comfortable in it. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. We were celebrating our anniversary so they had a sign made up for our special occassion and had it displayed in the hallway. That was truly special for us and we got to take it home as a keepsake. Breakfast was also wonderful. They have their own special receipes along with juice and coffee,muffins,etc. They also provide drinks and snacks in the dining area for later in the day. You just go and help yourself.
