“Walking distance to historic Williamsburg”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

Stayed a few days. Across from College of William and Mary and about a 10 minute walk to the historic part of Williamsburg. We had the Peyton Randolph suite which is in a separate building from the house. Bathroom is tiny but we knew that from room description. Mainly the shower is what is tiny but if large showers are your preference choose another room. For comparison the shower is the size on a cruise ship for anyone that needs to know what my idea of small is. Does have a gas fireplace in it. Doesn't heat a lot but if it did I imagine it would be way too hot for one room so that is good. Breakfast was good. My only 2 suggestions for the owner would be to invest in more than one cream pitcher for coffee as it is shared between the tables and to also maybe get some little "hotel" size bottles of shampoo as sometimes those little packets were hard to open if you hands are already wet in the shower. Bed was comfortable in this room.

Room Tip: Depends if you want to be in the house or a separate building right behind it.

Thanks Clmtraveler,

Sincerely appreciate the feedback. We changed soap providers not to long ago and you are not the first one to suggest changes about the toiletries. More creamers, we have them but I just may have not noticed that day.

The Cottage rooms, particularly in the cooler months, are very popular with their cozy fireplaces. It is an old, Georgian style brick home with the room design from that era...larger common areas, smaller rooms. We do have several rooms that are larger suites, about the size of the Peyton Randolph in the house.

We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay. Humble innkeepers appreciate knowing that the effort is noticed.

Have a wonderful holiday and we look forward to a future visit.

Sincerely,
Grace & Bob Tubbs & Staff

Our stay at the Cedars was very enjoyable. Bob, our host, was delightful, humorious, and very informative. The B&B is ideally located for touring Williamburg. We stayed in the George Washington room and it was very spaceous ... but the bathroom was very tiny.

Greetings TKE,

We sincerely appreciate your exceptional review of our property and to see that you enjoyed your visit.

We try to make sure everyone has an enjoyable experience and maybe some laughs in the process. It seems to have been the case this time.

The George Washington is a very popular room. The only thing folks need to know is that George used to grind his teeth at night so we are occasionally finding slivers in the pillows from time to time. If you do find one though, they are worth something on eBay!

Have a wonderful holiday and we look forward to hosting a future Williamsburg adventure.

All the best.

Thanks for a lovely weekend in Williamsburg. It all started with our check in to the very nice B&B Cedars of Williamsburg. Fresh made chocolate chip cookies, hot cider, and lit fireplace. Our room was clean, cozy, and comfy. Breakfast was delicious with fresh fruit and thoughtfully made choices. Bob Tubbs and his gracious staff did a fantastic job of making us feel welcome, comfortable and with a funny, quick wit. Cedars is located just 10-15 minute walk to Historic downtown where we spent the day seeing sites and events. We will be back and I highly recommend Cedars of Williamsburg for the ultimate comfy experience.

Room Tip: any one of the rooms would be nice!

Hi Patricia,

Excellent! We are thrilled you enjoyed your visit to Williamsburg and your stay with us. As I probably mentioned, with the holidays coming, Williamsburg is fast becoming the "go to" holiday destination. That might be a good time for a return visit.

As you've reminded me about the hot cider, I am off to warm up a cup on this chilly day. We look forward to your next visit and sincerely appreciate this very nice review. I will be sure to share it with the rest of the Cedars crew.

Thanks

I've stayed in more than a few B&Bs. This may not be quite the best (the one we stayed at in Cork, Ireland gets that honor) but it comes close. The house is comfy, as are the beds. The location is perfect for Williamsburg with ample parking. The breakfasts were superb. Bob is a real card (though over a number of days, some of his humor does get a little worn). If there had been tvs in the rooms, I'd have given a 5 to this property.

Greetings DS,

We sincerely appreciate your feedback. It is good to know that the work that goes into owning a small business is recognized and appreciated. I think my days as a stand-up are long past but as you said, we enjoy the banter with guests.

The discussion of TVs come up from time to time. The majority feedback we have received continues to say that people appreciate not having the distraction of TVs. They read, have conversations and enjoy one another on a level not experienced at home. We do have a lot of folks bring their iPads, etc and watch their movies, etc via our wireless internet connections.

We look forward to a future visit. Have a wonderful holiday season.

All the best,
Grace & Bob Tubbs and Staff.

The Cedars is a beautiful B&B that totally immerses you in the local Williamsburg "flavor". The rooms are lovely. If you have orthopaedic issues you may want to choose a room on the lower floors as the stairs are quite steep. Bob is a gracious and lovely host! You are within easy walking distance of the historic area.

Greetings OBX-Girl60,

Our sincere thanks for this glowing review. It is nice to learn that we contribute in a small ways to your having a great Williamsburg experience. As you discovered, there is much to see and do around Williamsburg from the attractions, to the wine tours, the Eco Discovery Park to the zip line/tree top adventures.

The unique aspect of the Cedars are the uniquely decorated rooms. We are glad to learn that you enjoyed the breakfast experience and that I was able to help with your experience.

We look forward to a future visit. In the meantime, have a wonderful fall and holiday season.

All the best,

We stayed at The Cedars in Williamsburg for a Labor Day weekend getaway. It was our first experience with a B&B so we didn't know what to expect. It was wonderful! Bob, the innkeeper, was a gracious and engaging host, who always had witty stories and knowledgeable tips about the area. Our room, the George Washington, was on the first floor right by the front door. I had read other reviews that said that it was a noisy location, being by the front door, but we found it to be very quiet and peaceful (maybe because we always got back so late in the evening!) In the morning, we heard other guests coming down the stairs to breakfast, but that was fine because it got us up and moving as well. Our room was beautifully decorated with a canopy bed and period furniture; our 19 year-old daughter especially liked her twin bed in the adjacent parlor and enjoyed having her own space. Since we were on the first floor, we were right across from the library/sitting room and the porch where breakfast is served, so we often felt like we had the whole first floor to ourselves! We also met DeeDee, the housekeeper, who is a lovely person and does a wonderful job at keeping the rooms clean. The breakfasts were delicious - cheesy eggs, berry french toast, Virginia ham, apple crisp, warm muffins - and the wonderful food was a welcome start to on our day's sightseeing. It was also in a great location - about a 1/2 mile walk to the historic area of Williamsburg. We had a lovely time and will defintely return to The Cedars!

Hi Margaret T,

We are delighted to hear that you and your family enjoyed our B&B. Thanks for sharing this wonderful feedback.

Since the house is built with brick and plaster, noise is very rarely a problem anywhere on the premises. The George Washington is a very popular room for all the reasons that you stated. The only thing about that room is George used to grind his teeth at night so we occasionally find slivers in the pillows from time to time. If you do find one, they are worth something on eBay! ;-)

We are very fortunate to have this group of folks on staff. All are excellent with guests and at their jobs. Dee Dee has been with us for 8 years now and is a gem.

The very berry french toast is always a hit, one of my personal favorites. You should know we also accommodate dietary restriction and have a variety of vegan recipes as well.

We look forward to a future visit and very much appreciate your endorsement. We hope you enjoyed the photos of your stay and the Williamsburg area. The holidays is a wonderful time for a visit if your schedule allows.

Have a wonderful fall and holiday season.

Sincerely,

Grace & Bob Tubbs & Staff
