Beautiful colonial building, immaculate, with a pretty garden and charming period furnishings. Warm and efficient welcome from Brittany in the evening. Our Plantation Room was lovely, light and airy, and the four-poster bed exceptionally comfortable. OWner Alex prepared delicious breakfasts and was a great host. As a history teacher, he provided both fascinating background and advice on visiting nearby colonial...

Well thank you for being such a wonderful guest! It was a joy talking about Japanese culture with you. Thanks for teaching me a lot about the importance of beauty contests and the continued westernization of post-war Japan. Just another conversation at The Cedars :-) Thanks again for your kind words. See you soon!

The charm of this lovely B&B cannot be overstated. We stayed in the Martha Washington Room - smallish, but perfect for a weekend or a few days visit to the 'Burg. A short walk to Merchant's Square and DOG Street, right across from Phi Beta Kappa Hall. Not to mention the delicious breakfasts and delightful friendly, staff.
