“A wonderful place for a honeymoon”
Reviewed 26 March 2014

My wife and I have family in the Orlando area, but we chose instead to spend our last night at the Historic Edgewater Hotel in Winter Garden. We had stayed at other bed-and-breakfast style inns on our trip, but this one was definitely the most magical :-) From the vintage ambiance to the "you're like family to us" service from the staff (including the made-to-order breakfast!), our stay at the Edgewater was a fantastic experience.

Room Tip: Our corner room was spacious and had great views of the Historic Winter Garden area.

The four young ladies who own and run this place are so in tune to their guests that you feel really special while you're there. They consistently went that extra mile to keep you happy. Clean, period furnished rooms with modern bedding and plumbing, well prepared breakfasts to order and smiling helpful people area a winning formula.
The town has more personality than when we last visited, with more restaurants, shops, etc. than we found at our last visit. The West Orange bike path is right out the front door and provides 30+ miles of great riding.
We'll be back!

Room Tip: Room 212 is the largest, corner room and it has a king bed.

One of the most enjoyable B&Bs we have experienced. The staff is dedicated to assuring the guests have a good visit. Very clean and comfortable rooms. The bike path is terrific, and the town has many nice restaurants. This was our second year in a row and we will return.

2 night stay in March 2014. Everything was as represented. Beautiful old hotel with lots of character. Comfortable, clean rooms. Excellent location and great small town atmosphere. What the hotel may lack in modern features (no in-room fridge, ice machine or vending) the staff more than makes up in quality of service and guest attention. Excellent breakfast. If you are looking for a unique place with lots of character and friendly staff, this is the place.

If you enjoy destination bicycling weekends in Florida this is an excellent place. We shared two rooms with one bathroom [good friends no problems]. The town was fun. The bike trails are excellent. Edgewater Staff are casual and friendly. The breakfast table with guests was also great. This is a park the car and ride/walk everywhere Hotel. Looking forward to next time!

Walk through the double doors and enter a large lobby. Check in is easy. Ride the elevator up to the second floor where you're greeted by parakeets, cockatiels, a grandfather clock, a cozy sitting area, and large breakfast area. From there are two wings, east and west. We stayed in room 220/222. Each room had a full size bed, comfortable chair (not a barber's chair because that wasn't something I wanted in my room) and a tiny little tv. Large windows that let in plenty of sunshine once the blinds were opened. The view from the window wasn't anything but another building; looking down, a rather unkempt parking lot. Our room was clean, the bathroom was clean, the towels were nice and fluffy, the plumbing worked fine. Everything was great. The atmosphere is casual, not stuffy, and the owners were all very professional and cordial. Breakfast begins a 7am, where you can order grits, bacon, sausage, pancakes, etc from the menu and it's ready in 5 minutes. Bagels and toast are already waiting along with fruits and cereals. Tea/coffee and snacks are available 24/7. We were able to go to both the train museum and historical museum along with walking the downtown area. Scoops ice cream was great and so was the BBQ place across the street. It felt very secure knowing that without a key no one could come up to the second floor. Somethings I noted to myself, that weren't a problem for me, but could be for others so I will mention them: The 1st floor is probably 14 feet tall, so the wooden stairs are a bit more than just going up one flight. During the day, the owners will shuttle you in the elevator if you call them and ask, but late at night, you're on your own to get upstairs or down. I thought it smelled wonderful everywhere because they use glade plug ins abundantly. If you have sensitivities to perfumes, you might be bothered. Each room only had one chair, and the bed is rather tall, I would have liked 2 chairs in each room, and I'm sure I could have called to ask them to bring another one, but it wasn't a big deal for the one night we stayed. There were no screens on the windows, but it was cool enough we didn't need it opened. The tv is small, maybe 12". There is no DVD combo just a few cable channels. I didn't come to watch tv so I wasn't bothered by it, but I don't think there were aux or usb inputs. You're better off if you want to watch movies, just bringing your laptop. They will tell you at check-in that they don't enter your room, so if you need anything to just call. This means no bed turn down or little candies at night. I highly recommend staying at the hotel. We enjoyed having breakfast with the other guests, and all that the downtown offered. It was nice to see as they were starting to clean the rooms, bottles of bleach. In my mind bleach means clean.

Stayed for a week while on vacation (beach, universal (~20 minutes), Disney (~30 minutes)) Had two rooms (one with two beds for kids) separated by a bathroom. Customer service / personal touch is above and beyond. Enjoyed the breakfast each morning. Older venue but well taken care of by four families that live on site. Would recommend and stay again. Family friendly and very comfortable. Large dining table for breakfast meant that you had opportunity to meet other guests / staff and get ideas on what to do / see in the area. Have stayed in other BBs and felt this one was somewhere between a Hotel and a traditional BB given the layout of the rooms and common area. Multiple restaurants within easy walking distance. Landromat within walking distance was ideal for our longer stay/ beach with kids. Some noise if you have a room that faces the street verses the inner courtyard but not continuous or significant. Winter Garden well connected to Orlando and most anything you want to do via the expressways. Iowa City, Iowa.
