St. Johns House is a B&B in the European tradition: a private residence offering overnight lodging and a freshly prepared breakfast to travelers. Large rooms, porches and comfortable furnishings provide a perfect resting spot for business and leisure travelers. We offer three guest rooms, each with a private bath. WIFI is available thru-out the house and grounds. Beyond the house, tree-lined streets give way to city parks, unique shopping areas, restaurants and art galleries. It is a short ride to the downtown commercial district, sports complex, and the Convention Center.

My Husband and I arrived for the MSU Gator Bowl Game the weekend of New Years. From the very start, the historic neighborhood was perfect for evening and morning walks along the river while the location was perfect for downtown celebrations! Dan was so sweet and drove us to and from the game so that we didn't have the hassel of dealing with traffic or a taxi! Their breakfasts were very inventive and yummy! Everything was very clean and they provided top of the line bathing shampoos and such! I can not rave about it enough! Perfect!
