Since 1935, the smoke/pet-free Cedars entertains 4,000 guests annually. The largest B&B in Williamsburg, the Cedars offers 8 rooms in the main house and a wonderful 2 room cottage with fireplace. Less than a 10 minute walk to historic Williamsburg, and across the street from the College of William & Mary, The Cedars has been offering traditional colonial elegance, comfort and hospitality to its guests since 1935. Originally built by a doctor in the early 1930's to house his 7 children who would be attending the College of William and Mary, this 3-story brick Georgian home will set the tone for your visit to the 18th century. 200 year old brick from an old plantation house and the skilled workmanship of the historic Williamsburg restoration craftsmen have created an authentic colonial elegance to immerse you in the colonial ambiance of Williamsburg.

An beautiful and gracious B&B with some interesting perks.

4.8 on August 15, 2014

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.

visit to The Cedars

5 on June 15, 2014

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.

Innkeeper Response
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. As you know, we specialize in birthdays! Make sure to book that holidays trip we discussed. I promise you won't regret it. Grace & Bob and the Staff.

We stayed here to celebrate our 14th wedding anniversary. Our stay was fantastic and the staff was just amazing. Bob makes you feel like a kid again and LOVES taking pictures! The rooms are well kept, beds super comfortable and our breakfast was yummy! DeeDee was the housekeeper who just makes you feel so special and we love her so much :) We had a blessed time! Thank you for making our stay so fabulous.

Innkeeper Response
So glad to hear you enjoyed our hospitality. I guess you can call me a shutter bug! ;-) Dee Dee is a great employee and a joy to work with. We think the world of her.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Cedars. The host and staff were extremely pleasant and they made us feel welcomed. We would definitely stay at Cedars again. Our host was very involved during the entire stay and took delight in insuring that we participated in all Cedars had to offer.

Fantastic getaway within walking distance of Colonial Williamsburg

4.8 on April 26, 2014

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.

Innkeeper Response
One of the fun parts of Innkeeping is meeting all of the wonderful folks and knowing you helped make their Williamsburg experience a memorable one. We sincerely appreciate the kind words and look forward to that future visit. Have a wonderful 2014.

Great place for a honeymoon!

5 on March 30, 2014

We spent our honeymoon at the Cedars and it was amazing! We highly recommend it. Bob is a great host--so friendly and helpful with recommendations about Williamsburg. The breakfasts were delicious (the very berry french toast and the frittata we had on our last day were especially good) and the room was clean and cozy. We really enjoyed it and can't wait to return. Thanks for making our stay so nice!

Innkeeper Response
Thanks for taking the time to give us this wonderful feedback. We very much enjoy being part of the special times in people's lives. We look forward to the 1st anniversary visit. All the best.

The Gem of Williamsburg VA!

4.8 on March 16, 2014

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..

Innkeeper Response
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.
