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.

Our group from our church had a wonderful time at The Kenwood Inn. Everyone was so pleasant, the food was just excellent and we were so comfortable during our stay! Pat and her team do an amazing job. We felt like we were "home" in our own living room just relaxing and enjoying the beautiful atmosphere! Thanks for a wonderful stay. God bless you all!

First time at a B&B for me and loved it! We could not have asked for a better location, close to the Bay and all the restaurants, etc. Our room was beautiful, the only reason it didn't get 5 stars was because the bathroom, although manageable, was a bit snug. The Inn has many room options however, I happened to choose the most popular room. Everything else however, outweighed the small bathroom. Pat and her staff were WONDERFUL!!!, we felt so welcomed and they were on top of every need. The breakfast was amazing, so refreshing. My husband and I are already planning our next get-a-way there if we can work out the timeframe. I see now why this little gem of a B&B stays booked all year. Highly recommend The Kenwood Inn.

We spent a wonderful weekend at the Kenwood Inn. There were a couple of things, like not having hot water every single time we wanted it, but we do not hold it against the owners/Inn. The owner is extremely nice and cooperative. We spend to pass another weekend there when the opportunity presents itself to us.

We were greeted well initially and throughout our stay. Pat was so gracious and caring that we felt at home immediately. My vegan diet was well provided for and the entire breakfast was beautifully plated in the manner of a 4 star restaurant. The courtyard tables by the coi pond provided the most relaxing dining experience ever. We loved the entire experience including the cleanliness and thoughtfulness of the entire staff. We will be back again and bringing friends and family.
