The Frey's at the Cedars

4.0 on June 05, 2016

We stayed at the Cedars in April for three nights. When we arrived we were to fine out they upgraded our room at no charge. It was a very pleasant stay. The Breakfast was perfectly served in a very quaint room. The innkeeper was very friendly and served as a guide to the Williamsburg area. Pointing out and directing us to all the sites to see. He also told us about the history of the Inn and area. We would choose to stay there again if we go back to the area.

Innkeeper Response
Greetings Freys and thanks for the wonderful feedback. When we can, a room upgrade is fun. Folks don't expect and really do appreciate it. A little perk of an innkeeper's job. We look forward to a future visit. All the best. Grace & Bob Tubbs and Staff Cedars of Williamsburg B&B

Colonial Excellence

The location and ambience of this colonial inn are delightful. Bob and staff are friendly and helpful. The wooded property in the back with tables and gazebo create a lovely setting for quiet cocktails, picnic or reading. Beware of Bob's photography sessions after breakfast, before check out. Fun! When visiting Williamsburg, this is the place to be.

Innkeeper Response
We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay. The photos have been a real hit on Facebook. You should go viral real soon! ;-)
