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!
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 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..
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

Our stay at the Cedars B&B was amazing. The staff were all very friendly and made us feel right at home. The accommodations were beautiful and clean. The main house was very rustic and warm; our small cottage felt the same, especially with the fireplace. Breakfast was delicious and all homemade-definitely better than we could have bought at any restaurant! We are already looking forward to our next visit!
We are thrilled that you enjoyed the Cedars experience. We very much enjoy what we do and we are happy our guests appreciate the efforts. We look forward to your next visit.
