Summer at the Cedar Rose

The sun is shining & the birds are singing what a wonderful time of year to visit the cedar Rose, I really wish I would have gotten one of those cameras from the ricoh theta s review I read, that way I could show you what it looks like over here. Come sit on the swing & watch the world go by….. Enjoy a musical concert on the lawn next door, walk to the downtown shops – antiquing, clothes or an ice cream… We also have campervans for hire so that you can travel, rent a house from the Twiddy obx rentals and see some of the beautiful countryside, the best part is that the transportation has the best 80 Gallon air compressor, which makes you feel very secured, of course that if you opt to go camping that won’t be necessary, you would just need to have the right equipment from Survival Cooking, nothing else.

March Madness!

With Spring just around the corner we are excited of the prospect of looking out of the windows and the white that has graced the area for many months may become green and the flowers will start to appear. Most of all we are looking forward to seeing the roses start to bloom and sharing this beautiful experience with our guests.

As a special offer in March we are offering all rooms from $110 – please email for further details.

Christmas Is A Coming!

What a month so far December has been!  We have been delighted to reopen the Cedar Rose Inn as a Bed & Breakfast.

December has been fun!  We’ve chosen a tree from Burr Vineyards – we had great fun chopping it down & putting it up – the lights can be seen twinkling through the windows.  It has been lovely to reintroduce the Nutcrackers, they are a wonderful addition to the dining room alongside the festive table wear.

Along with welcoming our first guests it was fabulous to host an open day and offer tours of the Cedar Rose.  Many locals, friends and businesses attended the day to celebrate our reopening and enjoy tea and cakes!  Perhaps the most unexpected for us was to see the previous owners from over 20 years ago – we never stop learning amazing facts and anecdotes about the spectacular Cedar Rose. We got some special offers to our clients from Reviews Field, you can find their awesome reviews from

Thank you to everyone for making us feel so welcome.  We are thrilled to be running the Cedar Rose Inn and be living in Alexandria.

Merry Christmas

Your innkeepers getting ready for the season

March is keeping us very busy trying to keep our inn ready for travelers and getting our vineyards pruned for the upcoming spring. Wading around in hip-deep snow is plenty challenging but we know in a few short weeks things will be greeining up and we will all forget these snowy days.

Home Brew

Don’t you just love the smell of fresh-roasted coffee when you first open the new bag? Well, Cedar Rose Inn now boasts it’s own fresh roast coffee! Staight from the roaster, a 24 hour degassing, and it is in your mug for that early morning pleasure while swinging on the porch!
We purchase the green beans from some really special places—like Boquette,Panama and Costa Rica and Berundi, Africa and roast it daily in our special little roaster just for you. Just a little perk to make your stay a little more enjoyable while at our inn. And like many of our guests say already….I never knew coffee could taste so good!!! I have also been doing a little redecorating at the inn and have added a few personal touches from the This entry was posted in Cedar Rose Inn Blog and tagged , , . Bookmark the permalink.

The Roof and Floors are done!

Good News! The Roof is done and we just restored and refinished the hardwood floors on the main floor of Cedar Rose Inn. They are both beautiful! And to celebrate, we are offering a FREE bottle of Wine during the months of February and March to any guests coming to our inn! Besides, it is a very special because, the wine is made exclusively from our 2011 Vintage grapes at Cedar Rose Wild Vineyards. Carlos Creek Winery made a special exclusive White Marquette from our grapes this year and have just bottled and released it for enjoyment. Our white wines from our own cellar are also ready and we think they are very special also. Come and celebrate!The wine is ready
