History with a smile

4.2 on June 10, 2015

We stayed five days and aside from its great location, the clean and lovely room with big comfortable bed, and beautiful gardens, the host made a point of noting my dietary issues and I had a delicious gluten-free breakfast every day, complete with a view of the birds and the squirrels putting on quite a show. The host likes to take photos of the guests at the start but it's all in good fun and done good-naturedly. A thoroughly pleasant experience.


Fabulous stay!

My family of four (with a 10 & 12 year old) had a fabulous stay in the William & Mary Suite. It was such lovely home with comfy accommodations. We were amazed at how quiet it was at night, even with an almost full house!! We felt like we were staying at a friend's home. The warm cookies were a yummy welcome and the breakfast was delicious. Bob was a gracious host!! We would highly recommend Cedars if you are coming to Williamsburg!!


A great stay

Well located, easy walking to the main attractions, beautiful garden. Very friendly staff and excellent breakfasts! Most guests seemed to be visiting as tourists or for celebrations. I was in Williamsburg for work — the best place for me to do my work was in the dining room after breakfast, which was fine, and good to feel like this was home, not a hotel room only!


Nicest owner on Earth. Quiet and restful

The owner will accommodate all your needs with pleasure. He is the sweetest guy. It is so clean and neat with nothing out of place. Great place for William and Mary Parents.


Stay here, for it is wonderful!

You could not ask for a more charming and pleasant hosts than Grace and Bob. The rooms are charming and the breakfast is a pleasure. We were pleased with the location as well, with an easy walk to the Colonial Village.


Good Meal

Breakfast is very good taste!


Beautiful, relaxing getaway

We spent a wonderful, snowy weekend in the Christopher Wren room at The Cedars. We love bed and breakfast experiences because they are each such unique treasures with personal touches one doesn't find in a hotel, and the Cedars exemplifies this quality. Bob was a fantastic host with Dad-jokes aplenty (including the ambush photo session of spectacularly cheesy portraits I am saving for an appropriately embarrassing future date) and made our experience a real treat. Our room was beautifully appointed with an uncommonly comfortable king bed and homey, functional furnishings. Breakfast was outstanding both mornings and Bob bent over backwards to prepare vegetarian fare especially for me. The location was great and highly convenient to CW and William and Mary. The rooms do not include TVs, which we personally really appreciated, and the free wifi is strong enough to stream movies on a laptop if one so desires. I would recommend the Cedars to anyone looking for a weekend away, accommodations for a visit to William and Mary (fantastic for a parent weekend or admissions tours!), or a comfortable place to stay on business.


Christmas at Cedars B&B

5 on January 05, 2015

Bob met us at the door, showed us around the premises. He was very helpful with any of our questions, offering info on activities in the area, as well as possible places to eat. Breakfast was fabulous, a gourmet delight! He was most accommodating when my husband's sister asked to visit us there for a couple of hours( lives in area). He and Grace could not do enough for us. We will be back!


Great B&B
