Cedar Lane Plantation


On a hilltop overlooking 440 green acres, this charming 19th Century plantation home has undergone a far-reaching historical restoration.  The original structure is composed of two wooden stories with two landings over a large brick lower ground floor that features crude hand-hewn beams.

Cedar Lane has 4 Bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms and a large kitchen equipped with dual ranges and ample refrigeration for weddings, other catered events or a weekend stay. The plantation’s acres are great for hiking and horseback rides can be arranged. Please inquire for availability and details if you’re interested in hosting your wedding or event at Cedar Lane Plantation.

We are situated on a colonial roadway, now New Kent Highway. Local Saudè Creek Vineyards, the Gauthier Vineyard and the New Kent Winery can be reached within 10 minutes by car. Within approximately 30 minutes you will find the Muscarelle Museum of Art, Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, Colonial Williamsburg and Historic Jamestown. Kids will not want to miss a trip to the nearby Busch Gardens of Williamsburg. Golfers have their pick of over a dozen nearby courses.

Cedar Lane Plantation will be open to the public for the first time on April 21st for the 2018 Virginia Historic Garden Week.

Moss Side Manor

Moss Side Manor is private and rural, yet located near a main thoroughfare and just a short distance from Interstate 64 so you can enjoy the best of both worlds- seclusion with convenience. Three wineries and four golf courses are found within minutes and its amenities are located less than a 30 minute drive from both Richmond and Williamsburg, an hour from Virginia Beach, and two hours from Washington D.C.

A stay at Moss Side offers you a rare look into what it would be like to live in a fine home during the mid-19th century. You’ll experience peace and tranquility in an authentic planter’s home with furnishing, decorations and architecture that transport you right back to the 1860s.

If you’re ready to disconnect from the daily grind in a beautiful and historic setting (with modern conveniences to keep you comfortable), book your stay at Moss Side. We offer a memorable destination for any traveler who enjoys being surrounded by history, nature and luxury. This two bedroom house comfortably sleeps four.

As was typical in 19th century homes, Moss Side features a detached building that today boasts a gourmet kitchen. Its modern appliances were installed to maintain the illusion of the 19th century as all have been disguised in old world cabinetry. Our kitchen produces simple meals and five-star dining experiences, both of which can be enjoyed in a rustic dining room upstairs or in the formal dining room in the Manor. This historical gem features exposed ceiling beams and a working fireplace.  There are a total of six fireplaces found at Moss Side, all of which are working and gas-fueled, providing ambiance without the need for old-world labor.


Moss Side Cottage

The adjoining Moss Side Cottage is also available for up to six guests. This luxurious three bedroom, three bathroom cottage retreat is convenient to Williamsburg, Yorktown and Richmond.

Located conveniently off of I64 and directly between Richmond and Williamsburg, Moss Side Cottage is a recently remodeled house located directly beside Moss Side Manor. Bring the entire family, group of friends or office and rent both houses! They are separated by a field and easily walkable. There are 240 acres that join the properties and make for an enjoyable nature walk.

Situated on 216 rural acres in historic New Kent County, visitors have access to a variety of countryside pleasures, including long walks, bird watching and picnics on the lawn. Tours of historic New Kent County are a delight with sites such as St. Peter’s Parish Church, where George and Martha Washington were married, and the James River Plantations in nearby Charles City County.
