Excellent service in a friendly, cozy environment. Everything about this inn is charming and inviting. Breakfast was delicious! This was my first stay, and I will definitely be staying again and recommending this The Cedars to friends. Thanks for making my two-night stay such a memorable one! Jan B.

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.

My wife and I traveled to Williamsburg for Homecoming weekend. We had planned to arrive on Thursday evening, but had to delay the arrival until Friday. When we called in early September to notify the Cedars of our delayed arrival, they were courteous and quick to change the date, with no fee. We arrived after dinner time on Friday, and...

They were most welcoming, our room in a separate cottage was delightful, all the amenities we needed after a long day's bike ride, great location in walking distance of a wonderful shopping/restaurant district. The owner is so friendly and fun to talk with and very helpful.

This is a wonderful B&B in an excellent location in Williamsburg. It is across the street from College of William & Mary and a 5-minute walk to Colonial Williamsburg. The room was very comfortable and clean. The breakfast was amazing. I can't wait to return.

First time staying at a Bed & Breakfast. We had exceptional service. The owners paid great attention to detail and made sure customer service always came first. Will be back again next year. Great location too! You can walk to Williamsburg and Jamestown was just a quick ride down the road.
