Cedar House Inn often has the privilege of introducing “first-timers” to the bed & breakfast experience. We do everything we can to make the experience one that turns them into regular B&B patrons. Here are some Frequently Asked Questions about bed & breakfasts and the Cedar House Inn specifically so you know what to expect when you visit us.
Q: What is an appropriate gratuity for a bed and breakfast housekeeper?
A: Gratuity is provided at our guest’s discretion. $5 to $8 per day is our suggested amount.
Q: What do you serve for breakfast?
A: Some things we keep a secret, but know that each day you will enjoy a two-course gourmet breakfast that will be served to you (rather than a buffet.) Each day we feature delicious fresh brewed coffee, assorted teas, our delicious Cedar House juice blend, fresh seasonal fruit in a variety of preparations and either a savory or sweet entrée robust enough to save you lunch money!
