Love Note: “First-Rate Quality”

18-04 Love Note Odonnell
“Dear Cyndi & Staff,

This is our first B&B in FL (too many to count in Bar Harbor, Maine); Bravo to you all! This is a first rate quality property. Well preserved and updated for comfort and relaxing.

The breakfasts are food art pieces in themselves, self win service and the porches are another unique touch.

The restaurant suggestions of Collage and Perserve were both 5 stars; and the central location of Cedar House  was perfect, never took the car out once.

Two highlights that we cannot miss mentioning are the front porch and your World Series Ring, what a treat for real Red Sox fans like us.

Thanks so much for your hospitality.

Bruce and Irene McDonnell <3”

Romantic Throwback Thursday

Cedar House Guests Michele and Bill Hunter in town to celebrate their 25th Anniversary at Cedar House Inn. What makes this extra special…Every 5 years Michele wears her original wedding gown in an exceptional setting to commemorate their special day. This year they walked into breakfast and received  a round of applause from our guests then made their way to the garden to “Lock their Love” on our Love-Lock garden bench.

Congratulations Michele and Bill and thank you for sharing your amazing tradition!

We love helping our guests celebrate anniversaries!

Breakfast Bracket Tourney *UPDATE*: And The Winner Is…

The Cedar House Inn is getting some extra national notoriety this week from BedAndBreakfast.com! We submitted an amazing Tiffany Katz Photography capture of one of our most popular breakfast dishes and it was selected as a finalist in their 2018 Breakfast Tourney. It’s probably not a surprise to you if you’ve entered our dining nook to the sight & smell of our Ham & Cheese Souffle Truffle Roasted Potatoes with Dijon Hollandaise.

UPDATE [04/09/18]

Congratulations Open Gates Bed & Breakfast in Darien Georgia! It was our pleasure to be Michigan to their Villa Nova!

Thank you as well to the friends and guests who voted for us in the BedandBreakfast.com breakfast tourney! Here’s some news for you: this has inspired a new amenity at Cedar House.

Our guests have encouraged us to serve dinner at the inn for years so, beginning in September 2018, we will host occasional Pop-Up Dinners paired with local wine and distilled spirits! We’ll provide more info soon and you can start planning your next #StAugustine Adventure. Until then, thanks to all that helped us make the finals!
