About

For over a century this lovely Victorian Inn has received visitors to St. Augustine. Local maps and early records show that the inn was built between 1865 and 1885 and was advertised as a private guest house as early as 1886. By 1911 the property was known as the Kenwood Hotel. The inn has maintained the charm and character of 100 years of tradition while now providing a casual elegant style to enjoy. Located within the Historic District between the Oldest House and the famous Castillo de San Marcos, The Kenwood Inn is within walking distance of many fine restaurants and all historic sites. It is one block from the Intracoastal Waterway with its passing fishing trawlers, yachts at anchor and the classic Bridge of Lions. Across the bridge by car or bicycle are miles of beautiful ocean beaches. The Inn's spacious accommodations include rooms with double, queen and king sized pillow-topped beds. Several rooms also include pullout queen size sofas. Beautiful balconies and porches are featured in many rooms. The Inn has central heat and air, and all rooms have private baths. All guestrooms feature hairdryers, bathrobes, overhead ceiling fans, HGTV televisions,and more. Bicycles are available to tour the city. The walled-in courtyard is the perfect place to sit and relax after a long day of exploring the old city. The saltwater swimming pool is adjacent to the courtyard through the gate and is very refreshing on those hot and humid summer days.

Cozy home away from home

5 on December 10, 2014

On our most recent trip to Florida, my girlfriend's parents wanted to take us to St. Augustine since neither one of us had ever been there before. During the drive, she did a Google search for "Haunted Bed & Breakfast" and found the Kenwood Inn. She spoke to Pat, the owner, and immediately booked us 2 rooms. I'm so glad she did because it was a wonderful, relaxing experience. Pat was one of the kindest and most welcoming people I've ever had the pleasure of meeting, and her staff provided excellent service. The 4 of us had such a great time during our stay that we decided to stay another night. Whether it was during "social hour" having wine with the other guests or sitting down at breakfast in the morning, Pat made us feel right at home engaging us in conversation all the while making sure we had everything we needed. By the time we had to leave, we felt like family. We will definitely be returning here the next time we visit! Highly recommended!


The Kenwood Inn became home during my wedding weekend

5 on November 24, 2014

My whole family (aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents, the whole gang) stayed here for the weekend of my wedding. The staff worked incredibly hard to accommodate everyone. Pat, the owner, felt like family right away! Knowing she was there we could rest assured that everything we needed would be taken care of. She even drove my luggage to the hotel I would be staying at for the wedding night. She also had needle and thread on hand for my now husband who discovered his suit for the wedding was torn in the most unfortunate spot. The food was incredible! Breakfast consisted of quiche, an entire baked ham, smoked salmon, and more! We were also served wine every evening. All of the furniture are antiques and beautiful! I felt very clean the whole time I was there as everything was spotless and the sheets were crisp and literally smelled like flowers. The Kenwood Inn is perfect for all ages and every occassion! Whether you just need a place to stay for the night or if you need a place for your entire family for a wedding week!


Wonderful Memories Were Made!

5 on November 21, 2014

My sister got married last weekend in St. Augustine, and we stayed at the Kenwood Inn. We have a pretty large family, so we rented every room. Our stay was beyond wonderful! The accommodations were fantastic, and we felt like one big happy family in our very own home! Pat is the best! She took care of our every need with a smile on her face. She even cooked the food for the rehearsal dinner, and it was amazing! Breakfast was incredible each morning. Very impressive. I highly recommend!


Kenwood worth the drive

5 on November 19, 2014

A friend and I wanted to visit Charlestown and Savannah. Another friend said we should include St. Augustine. From Charlestown, it was 4 1/2 hours. But we decided to go and booked a suite at the Kenwood Inn. Two friends often don't want to share a bed and the suite not only gave us two beds, but two rooms!


Oasis In St. Augustine

4.6 on November 17, 2014

The Kenwood Inn is a repeat visit for sure.. We will be back! The care Pat and staff have taken in creating a warm and welcoming experience for guests pays off.. Historic home with all the modern comforts, I would not hesitate to return! From breakfast to wine at 5 to conversations throughout the day.. This place is A+


Wonderful Anniversary Getaway

4.6 on November 16, 2014

The Kenwood Inn is a wonderful B&B. Located just moments away from wonderful restaurants of St. Augustine. We loved the recommendation for our anniversary dinner on the night we arrived even though it was our second choice. First choice was booked but Pat (owner) got us reservations to it on the last night before we left. Breakfasts were delicious! Loved the coy pond. We did not get into the pool (a bit too chilly for that) but did take advantage of the bikes that were available to ride, taking them across the bridge to St. Augustine Lighthouse. The afternoon treats were delicious. And we loved the social hour at 5pm with the wine. The only downside was the street cleaning that occurred early and since our room faced the street it did wake us up but that is not the fault of the place just something to consider when picking a room. And the Blue Porcelain room does not have a door or even a sheet to separate the bathroom from the room itself. No worries as there was a wonderful porch to sit on but some sort of "divider" would be nice. The room itself was delightfully decorated and the bed was EXCELLENT! The room was also clean!!! All staff were friendly. Would love to make it back someday. Thank you Pat!!!


Great part of our stay

4.8 on November 14, 2014

We had never been to St Augustine and decided we wanted to add to the local ambience by stay at a B&B. After reviewing several, we selected Kenwood Inn. Frob the moment we enter the Inn we knew we had made nothe only a good selection, but an exceptional one. Nothing was left to chance and our small need was attended to immediately by the Innkeeper and her staff. There is no doubt when we return to St Augustine we will be staying at the Kenwood Inn. All other B&B we stay at will definitely have an extremely high benchmark to match. Chip & Kathy Conde Ohio


A return to St. Augustine

5 on November 14, 2014

Two plus decades since coming to St. Augustine and not wishing to be in throngs of tourists this time. The Kenwood Inn is perfectly situated to enjoy the feel of the town and the sense of being simultaneously in the United States and a small European city. The Inn is a leisurely stroll to places you want to be. The Inn itself is luxurious in a simply straightforward manner. The linens are superb, and the books in our room invited me to linger, though mentioning those is only to say a couple of the many superb details. It is an atmosphere in which you can join with others or enjoy your privacy. There wasn't a false note throughout our stay. Enjoy. Evelyn & Geoff
