I have nothing but great things to say about this place. The facility was new, yet had all the warmth and old world charm I would expect if a B&B. The hosts could not have been more pleasant or helpful. They made us feel so welcome. Fantastic place.

Lee House offered a beautiful, peaceful opportunity to enjoy Pensacola in the fall. We couldn't have asked for anything more. Delicious food, lovely views, and total sleeping comfort.

Lovely home. Great views. Perfect location.
5 on October 23, 2013
This was our first stay at a B and B. Lee House was a great respite after a long trip. The hostess and host made us welcome and were great in letting us get relaxed and enjoy our limited time in Pensacola. Though our time was limited to one evening, it was, by far, the best stop on our 7,000 mile journey.
4.8 on October 07, 2013
Norma was very welcoming and warm. The house is lovely and within walking distance of downtown. We had a fabulous visit and only regret that we didn't have a 2nd night there. The egg casserole for breakfast was outstanding!!
4.2 on October 02, 2013
Thought this was a charming house/Inn..tastefully furnished throughout...a real home cooked breakfast and just an all round pleasant experience and would certainly wish to stay again on future visits to Pensacola
5 on October 01, 2013
The Lee House B & B just can't be beat; it's a wonderful home in an ideal Penscola location, the breakfasts are superb and the hosts are the absolute best! This is our second time staying here and we'll definitely return. It is a magnificent place to stay to enjoy Pensacola on foot (or bikes if you prefer which they have on site).
4.8 on September 25, 2013
Welcoming hosts, well-designed accommodations, superb breakfasts. The location of this B&B is convenient for the majority of activities in the Pensacola, FL area. Though a new facility, the Lee House blends into the historic district near Seville Square with quiet grace.
4.6 on September 08, 2013
We did not dine at this B&B. The management was very helpful and kind to us. We really enjoyed our short stay.
5 on September 06, 2013
I highly recommend this Bed & Breakfast! It is in a prime location for walking to the historic district and numerous restaurants, has a beautiful Bay view and is perfectly appointed, clean, and comfortable. The hostess Norma was sweet and accommodating, and provided a wealth of information about Pensacola and local restaurants and shops. I would recommend it to every friend and family member who visits the area. We will definitely return!
5 on August 28, 2013
Great location and a wonderful place to stay. The rooms were big and it was quite pleasant to watch the sunset or sunrise on the balcony.
5 on August 16, 2013
The Lee house is located in downtown Pensacola and has a beautiful view of the water, as well as, the historical park. The B&B is very eloquent and delicious. Norma goes above and beyond to make you feel like you are at home. I would highly recommend this B&B to anyone looking for a nice vacation along the Gulf coast.
5 on August 05, 2013
Within walking distance from the Historical Seville Quarter or the local minor league ballpark so there is plenty to do. Even shorter walk to a cannery turned restaurants and nightclub. It was very cool on the weekend as we could sit on the veranda with our glass of wine and listen to the band across the water and watch the fireworks from the ballpark on game nights. During the week we could watch the lighted cranes on the harbor as they loaded ships. It was very cool. I heard some people complained about the sound of the crane motors but we didn't hear a thing when we were in our room. Mornings after the very yummy breakfast we would sit on the veranda and watch fish and dolphins cavorting in the bay across the street. The hostess also gave us great information on the history of the building site and town and told us the best places to explore and those to avoid. She even loaned us beach chairs and towels when we told her we were going out to Ft Pickens and the beach. We had a very lovely time and will definitely book rooms here when ever we visit family in Pensacola!
5 on August 04, 2013
Outstanding service and amenities! Rooms were wonderful, there is a great microbrewery right across the park, and the restaurants within walking distance have something for everyone. Will definitely stay again.

After reading wonderful reviews online, my fiancé and I planned a brief getaway at Lee House to celebrate his 40th birthday. With 4 days on our hands, we anticipated spending some time at the beach and finding a nice place to rest but after arrival and relaxing into the graceful elegance, we found no need to leave the comfort and deliciousness of Lee House. The only reasons we sauntered out was for casual walks in Downtown Pensacola and the historic village surrounding the Inn, or for meals in the area's wonderful restaurants. Each of our days began with the most generous and sumptuous of breakfasts accompanied by our friendly and sweet Hostess, Norma Murray. She shared warm and genuine conversation that truly made us feel as if we were guests in her home, sharing a meal. The breakfasts were bountiful, delicious, and made with such love and care! Our room and all the public areas were beautifully appointed and expertly designed. Our afternoons were usually spent romantically relaxing on the balcony, sipping wine, and enjoying the Summer comfort of cool Gulf breezes. When it came the day of my fiancé's birthday, Norma even surprised us with a lovely sour cream cake that she made exclusively for the occasion! We were so very touched and grateful by all the quaint and sweet details of our time at Lee House that now that we are back home, we miss the tantalizing breakfasts, warm conversation, and are yearning for a return. In essence, we found the Inn [and our host] beautiful, gracious, and surrendered to enjoying a few lazy days of pleasantries and restful indulgences that our spirits sorely needed. Our visit was a balm for the senses, and we highly recommend time at Lee House [and with Norma Murray] to experience the kind of hospitable details that converge into a sweet memory for those seeking a respite from the outside world.
4.8 on July 25, 2013
We stopped in at the Lee house for a weekend stay in Pensacola. The owners were very nice, and spent about 30 minutes with us that evening making recommendations on where to visit, eat, and see before leaving. The next morning they held breakfast over for us later than usual and again spent time giving us ideas on where to visit and see (including directions to sites) all while setting up for a wedding at the property later that day. Very helpful all around, and highly recommended
5 on July 03, 2013
We stayed overnight to visit some Pensacola museums. Beautifully decorated, clean, room with a gorgeous view of the bay. We enjoyed using the Inn's complimentary bikes for a ride around the neighborhood - lots of interesting old houses, and war memorials. Norma is lovely and welcoming, and prepared a beautiful breakfast for us. I would definitely stay again.
4.2 on June 30, 2013
Not your typical bread and breakfast. Great for business travelers. Great value and place to stay. Amazing breakfast prepared by Norma.
5 on June 22, 2013
one of the top five B&B we have stayed in--five star in every way
5 on June 16, 2013
The room was beautiful, It was a great experience all around. I wish we could have stayed longer. I went there for my Birthday and I felt like royalty. It was just such a nice place. If you are in the area and looking for a bed in breakfast I would definitely recommend Lee House Bed and Breakfast Inn.
4.6 on June 08, 2013
We booked a weekend stay at the Lee House B&B and took suite 8. The interior was well appointed and the staff were very friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay again and would recommend it to anyone looking for a B&B centrally located by the Pensacola downtown.
5 on June 08, 2013
Beautiful room with a great view, close to downtown attractions, great personal service.
5 on May 30, 2013
Simply a great experience. Quiet. Clean. Great breakfast. Great location.
5 on May 28, 2013
My husband and I stayed the night of our wedding and fell absolutely in love with the Lee House. Everything from the architecture to the unbelievable friendly service made our experience even more plesant. I can't wait to stay again but for a longer period of time!

My daughter reserved the honeymoon suite (#8) as a belated Mother's Day gift for her parents because she and her husband had stayed there once before and just loved it. The honeymoon suite has the best location and amenities: king-size bed with luxurious European bedding, a walk-in shower and jetted garden tub (for two), two sets of French doors that open up to the second-floor porch, with panoramic views of both Pensacola Bay and Fountain Park. We spent half our time sitting on the porch just watching all of the activity going on in the Bay, docks, (and just people watching because it was "Gallery Night"). Norma (with her husband Patrick) is a wonderful hostess. I really liked her and she provided a wonderful, visually appealing (and filling) breakfast, but meeting new people (and truly appreciating the decor of the kitchen, gathering room, dining room and courtyard), made the breakfast experience extra special. Lee House Bed and Breakfast Inn really does have uncommon beauty, great location, modern elegance, luxurious comfort, local history, and provides classic Southern hospitality. We truly did not want to leave and would definitely go there again. Thank you, my daughter and son-in-law, for choosing Lee House (and Suite #8). It truly is the best!!
5 on May 10, 2013
What a wonderful way to celebrate our anniversary. Lee House is a treasure for Pensacola . Norma is a wonderful innkeeper and hostess.

The Lee House was a great find.... the accomodations were perfect and the location was great!
4.0 on March 21, 2013
The owners of Lee House were extremely friendly and helpful. Our room was outstanding. We enjoyed the balcony but the view of the cranes, etc. was less than we expected. Breakfast was good simple fare but not memorable. All in all we would not hesitate to stay at Lee House Bed and Breakfast again.
3.6 on March 11, 2013
My wife and I spent our wedding night in the honeymoon suite at the Lee House. With only one night we didn't get the full experience, but the room was beautiful and clean. The atmosphere was warm and cozy... wish we could have stayed longer!
4.6 on January 31, 2013
Loved the Lee House - beautiful decor and delicious breakfast. Beautiful view of the bay and walking distance to shopping and restaurants. The only slight negative - though no fault of owners - is the busy street and traffic noise between the house and the bay. :( Also, difficult to get owners by phone; they are busy but a machine or answering service would be helpful. Overall - great stay!
4.8 on January 05, 2013
Lee House is an excellent alternative to a standard hotel room by offering personal service and unique experiences in a very updated style. Unlike most b&b, this Inn provides all the modern amenities combined with excellent views of the water and a short walk to downtown attractions.
5 on January 04, 2013
The Murray's have made this place feel like home, and go over and beyond expectations to make sure your stay is a pleasant one . We will use The Lee House Inn for many New Years to come. Was a great start to a new year . Not to mention Norma's breakfast ..... Leaves nothing to be wished for was great !!!!
5 on December 21, 2012
Everything was of high quality and comfort. I particularly enjoyed the quiet, and the very comfortable bed. Oh, and also the dedicated attention to such things as bagging up breakfast for us to take on the go.
5 on December 17, 2012
Lee House Inn defines sophisticated charm and quaintness. I loved it! Beautifully decorated for Christmas. The proprietors are wonderful and make one feel right at home. Room was beautiful and I loved early morning relaxing on the veranda. Great location as well. I will definitely recommend it and hope to return for another visit.

The Lee House was a unique and convenient place for a family wedding. The view was nice and the courtyard was perfect for a wedding. Our room was a bit dark and there was no hairdryer or make-up mirror, but I loved the B&B!
4.6 on September 27, 2012
Stayed at the Lee House and had our son's wedding reception here. Everything was fabulous...and the venue was gorgeous. Norma and Patrick were wonderful hosts and made us feel like family. We would definitely stay here again!
3.4 on August 21, 2012
It took many emails and phone calls to finally secure a reservation at the Lee House. A process so frustrating that I almost gave up. Once we arrived, however, we found the inn beautiful and immaculately clean. The rooms were large and tastefully decorated. Breakfast food was tasty, but the quality and presentation of the menu items was disappointing in comparison to other inns we have stayed in; especially so when considering the price of our stay was upscale.
5 on July 15, 2012
Staying at the Lee House was destination enough for us when visiting Pensacola. Although we did have other reasons for heading to NW Florida, we found that the absolute highlight of our trip was staying at Lee House and visiting with the owners Norma and Pat. Every aspect of our stay was solidly in the 5 star range. Don't miss this one if you get to Pensacola.
5 on July 08, 2012
Enjoyed our stay over the 4th of July in a prime location for enjoying the fireworks. Owners and staff go above and beyond to make your stay comfortable. Feels like family
5 on June 19, 2012
Lee House is a home away from home. The location, rooms, food, and hospitality are terrific. There's tons to do all within a short distance of the B&B. Rooms are beautiful with good views. Breakfast is first-rate. Norma is wonderful hostess. Be sure to see the Blue Angels when you're there!
4.0 on June 18, 2012
We had a lovely time at the Lee House with a wonderful dinner there prior to the Seville Square Concert in the Park. The jetted tub is marvelous. Norma and Blake are gracious in hosting the meals and we met other great guests. I'm looking forward to and planning my next stay.
5 on May 30, 2012
We spent our wedding night at the Lee House and they housed the bride-to-be the night before. Couldn't have asked for a better getaway and a place for them to take care of the bride before the wedding. The food was AMAZING. Norma and Patrick are super friendly and will go above and beyond to help. If you are getting married downtown, seriously consider this place for your hotel stay. It's absolutely worth every penny. - Devin and Kate Roark
5 on May 30, 2012
The owners are wonderful people. The rooms are very nice, centrally located, beautiful place.

My father and me travelled trough the South East together. By hazard we passed the Lee House the evening before we want there, when we came back from diner. Already back then, my father and I discussed the fantastic architecture. We thought that it was a nicely renovated ancient house. The next morning we were on the way to eat breakfast. We once more passed by and of course remembered the Lee House. We saw, that it was a Bed and Breakfast Inn and thought, let's see what it has to offer. We got onto the veranda and Mr Murray and Mrs Murray stepped out of the door. They saw us being interested about their Inn and showed us their lovely Lee House explaining us all about the history of Pensacola and their place. We were totally impressed how high end and modern the house was. They found the perfect mixture between old-fashioned southern architecture and state of the art decor! What an incredible atmosphere! The Murray's are hosts you've never had before. I promise! Mrs Murray is a gourmet cook. As a resume: Go there, stay there and you'll never regret it! Defining new standards of Bed and Breakfast! We definitely will come back! Simon Nussli from Switzerland PS: Excuse my English writing. I'm not native.

This was my third year staying at the Lee House Bed and Breakfast. The rooms are beautifully decorated, the beds soooo comfy and Norma is such a great cook and hostess! I plan to return again next April or May! I highly recommend staying at the Lee House Bed and Breakfast whether your in Pensacola for work or play!
5 on April 10, 2012
Outstanding!! The entire house is beautiful, the decor was so inviting. Our room was beautiful and we had our coffee every morning on the wrap around porch. Norma and Pat were excellent hosts. They made you feel so at home. We were there for a wedding reception and were able to enjoy 3 of Norma's famous breakfasts - absolutely delicious. If you are in Pensacola for business or pleasure, I highly recommend the Lee House.
5 on February 24, 2012
What a perfect place to get away! Lovely in all respects and closely located to favorite dining and shopping spots. Can't wait to return!

From the moment you enter the grand porch, you feel welcome and appreciated. From the magnificent warmly decorated common areas to the spacious and luxurious rooms, this was the total experience. And that says nothing for the fantastic breakfast provided by one of Pensacola's top chefs! If you never stay at another B&B, stay at this one first!
5 on December 29, 2011
Outstanding B&B with great comfort and surrounding historical views. EJ
5 on November 30, 2011
Norma was awesome! The room was exquisite and the view was outstanding. The town is very quaint and full of life. McGuire's Irish Pub was as close to perfect as you can get. Our stay was a wonderful experience. We will definitely be back to stay.
5 on November 21, 2011
I stayed with them for an extended period of time... I must say- the only way to describe my stay: outstanding!! Norma acted like a mother to me, made sure I was up had coffee and was ready for my day. She even provided me with a sport coat when needed (compliments of Pat of course). Pat and Norma really did a fantastic job with the Lee house. They offered suggestions for local events and restaurants. They treated me like part of the family. I will never forget my stay with them. It is my hope that I can visit them again in the future. Lastly, Norma makes breakfast herself and boy what a treat! Simply an amazing place!
4.8 on October 31, 2011
Beautiful facility. Wonderful location. Everything is done right. And Norma is a wonderful host. I will definitely be back.
5 on October 24, 2011
Norma and Pat make every effort to ensure that your stay at Lee House is warm, comfortable and "homey"! No detail escapes their attention! We had a wonderful visit and look forward to returning as soon as we can! Our room was so comfortable and the view of the bay was so inviting. Our meals were delicious, and the addition of an opportunity to enjoy a meal by Blake Rushing was a highlight of our stay. We would recommend this B & B very highly!
4.6 on October 01, 2011
We had a wonderful stay recently at the Lee House. Our room was very comfortable and cozy. The house is absolutely gorgeous-it really is an upscale B&B that is beautifully decorated. Breakfast was delicious both mornings and we had a great time talking to Norma and the guests.
4.4 on September 28, 2011
My travel companion and I thoroughly enjoyed Lee House and Norma, the innkeeper. Her attention to detail is 5 star, both in the construction of the house and the daily operations. Our chief (and only) complaint is that breakfast is served at 9 a.m. which was late for us because it was 10 a.m. before we could start our daily explorations. On the flip side, though, it gave us a chance to visit with the other guests and the innkeepers. There is keyless entry to the inn and to your suite so you never have to worry about a key. You'll love the euro bedding and thirsty towels. A nice surprise is that there is an elevator! We'll be back!
4.6 on September 24, 2011
We completely enjoyed our 2 nights at the Lee House Bed and Breakfast Inn. Our stay was managed professionally from beginning to end. The atmosphere was beautiful and relaxing. The Inn was clean and comfortable. The food was delicious and filling. Norma was friendly and hospitable, making us feel like we were at home. She has a great ability to be available to help (restaurant suggestions and making time to chat) and to provide extras (cookies, wine, breakfast at the time we chose) without hovering. We are already planning to return. It truly made our trip perfect!
5 on September 20, 2011
We stayed in Suite 7 to celebrate our year anniversary. We used the Lee House for our Wedding Reception inside and out. The house is gorgeous and Norma is always so welcoming and a fantastic cook! We hope to make this a tradition.
5 on August 24, 2011
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The B and B was close to restaurants and Norma was helpful in answering all our questions and also sat with us at breakfast and told us how the inn came to be which was most interesting! We would definitely stay there again! Dick and Marty Frederick. Auburn,Al.
3.4 on August 16, 2011
The rooms were very nice. The inn was very clean. The beds were comfortable. The room opens onto a porch with seating. it was very relaxing. Ms. Norma was very nice. Breakfast was tasty every morning. I would definitely visit again.

Norma Murray is a wonderful and accomodating hostess! wonderful BnB
4.2 on July 20, 2011
The Lee House was more beautiful than the pictures give it credit, the decor was so soothing and yet so inviting, the rooms were large and comfortable, the bathroom much larger than any hotel and the food, oh the food was so wonderful, mouthwatering to say the least. Can not say enough about the stay, just wonderful.
4.6 on July 11, 2011
My wife and I were looking for a quaint, weekend getaway in the Pensacola area and the Lee House was perfect. The rooms were clean and nicely decorated and the property itself is beautiful. The breakfast provided was absolutely delicious. Would love to plan another getaway to this B & B!
4.6 on July 08, 2011
I know it's a B&B, but I've never stayed in one before so I can only judge it against hotels I've visited. We didn't get to see much of Patrick since he was on call over the holiday weekend, but Norma is simply fabulous. Norma is extremely personable and had breakfast with us all daily. Breakfasts were superb and not too early morning for us later risers. We did pay for extra dinner that was cooked by Chef Blake, but we weren't as impressed with his cooking as I was with hers. She made this bread pudding for dessert that was out of this world. And I don't even like bread pudding! Beds were extremely comfortable and I definitely recommend this for anyone who'd like a romantic getaway with their spouse. The only slight pitfall to the vacation was a restaurant on the other side of the parkway has live music and since were there for the weekend we were able to hear the music very late into the night. I am certainly not faulting the Murrays for this since they have no control over the Fish House (restaurant) entertainment. I hope we get to go back soon!! If I could rate the service above outstanding I would - they were some of the nicest people we've ever met!
5 on June 06, 2011
Simple: Outstanding. Everything from rooms to service was great! Hosts were great people and the decor was clean and organized! Keep it up Lee House! Loved the stay!
4.8 on May 23, 2011
Lee House is beautifully constructed, the decor is lovely and it is very tastefully dressed. Add to that the fact that Norma and Pat are charming hosts, and will go to great lengths to ensure that your stay is everything you want it to be and you really cant go wrong. It is rare that one doesnt feel there was some small thing that could have been better but I really cannot think of anything! A must if you are in the area and worth a detour if not!
5 on April 21, 2011
Lee House is perfectly situated in Pennsacola's historic district with a view of the Bay and within easy walking distance of the best restaurants and galleries. The building, constructed within the past few years, is wonderfully decorated with each room establishing a unique decorator identity. We did not spend time with Patrick but Norma was a genuinely great host. We'll be back.
5 on April 04, 2011
Highly recommend the Lee House. Innkeepers are excellent hosts and offer a unique bed and breakfast environment. We always look forward to our stay with the Murrays and as an added benefit, enjoy catching up with each other. We go out of our way to drive to Pensacola to stay with Norma and Pat. They are truly wonderful people and their innkeeping style is representative of their personalities which can be summarized as personable and comfortable.
5 on March 31, 2011
The Inn was so warm and inviting that we didn't want to leave. Norma and Patrick make you feel like you are part of their family. We will surely be visiting again.
5 on March 30, 2011
I Found this B&B on this site, and was amazed at what I seen when I got there. It was the most beautiful place that I have ever been to. Not your ordinary B&B!!!! The modern design was excellent, unlike no other B&B I have ever been to. The bedding was comfortable, the breakfast was amazing, and the service was excellent. The location is priceless!! The location is downtown Pensacola right off the bay. You can sit and watch the sunset while you relax on the porch. Too many points to mention. The next time you are in Pensacola, check them out. Thanks Norma and crew for your hospitality!!!! See you again soon!!!!
5 on March 22, 2011
This was our first stay at a B&B, and now the bar has been set very high. The owners are a perfect example of the term "southern hospitality." Our room was very comfortable, the breakfast was outstanding, and Norma & Pat are wonderful people. On a scale of 1 to 10, I give this a 12. S & D
4.4 on March 22, 2011
Great B&B with excellent location and service from the owners. We enjoyed the keyless enty pad on all doors to the facility and service from the owners. The rooms very spotless and top of the line ammenities.
4.2 on March 08, 2011
Very comfortable inn within walking distance to the historic district. This place does not have a historic or charming feel but is a well designed inn with large, well equipped rooms in a very good location. The breakfasts are terrific and the hosts are very accommodating; whether with recommendations or to let you borrow the inn's bikes. We enjoyed our visit.
4.6 on March 06, 2011
The Lee House has a rare combination of in bed&breakfasts: great location in the historic district of town, charming historic architecture on the outside, fully modern amenities on the inside, and a owner/host that knows exactly how an Inn should run. The rooms are superb, very quiet, beautiful balcony view, and fantastic shower design. The downstairs common areas is very large and extremely inviting. Dining opportunities are numerous within a short walk. Highly recommend a visit to both Pensacola and the Lee House.
5 on February 23, 2011
This was our second stay at the Lee House. The house is beautiful. The balcony overlooks Pensacola Bay - the sunrise and sunset is absolutely beautiful. The breakfast was amazing on both of our visits. Both Pat and Norma were so welcoming and friendly. My husband and I look forward to our next overnight at the Lee House!
5 on February 16, 2011
Couldn't ask for a better place to stay. The entire property is beautiful from the lobby, to the kitchen,to the courtyard and the guest rooms. Do NOT miss the breakfast it was all made from scratch and delish! We will definitely visit again. Thanks Norma!
5 on February 16, 2011
Beautifully decorated, great views of the bay and easy walking distance to dining and shopping! Not your typical bed and breakfast! Norma is very gracious and serves up a gourmet breakfast you will not soon forget. Be sure to take home her cookbook! Book The Lee House - you won't regret it!
4.8 on February 07, 2011
A recently constructed, beautifully furnished and outfitted, and exceptionally well-managed operation. In addition, Norma and Patrick are delightful hosts! My 3-night stay, as a result, could not have been more enjoyable.
5 on February 07, 2011
I was in Pensacola for business. The Lee House was perfect. The price was reasonable. The location was perfect. The rooms were very nice, and the service was terrific. I highly recommend.
4.4 on December 27, 2010
All was excellent. Unfortunatelly, a restaurant-bar in the neighborhood was very noisy till at least 2.00 am.
5 on December 20, 2010
Norma and Pat are wonderful hosts. Every desire is met and they are so warm and welcoming. The Lee House is always outstanding. This was my third stay and I will be back again.
5 on December 01, 2010
Enjoyed our stay in every way. Norma is a gem and the property is exceptional.
5 on October 20, 2010
There aren't enough stars to reflect what a wonderful experience staying at The Lee House is. The Lee House was the setting of our daughter's wedding this October, 2010...and it was PERFECT. We rented out the entire house for two nights and the courtyard for the reception. The atmosphere was so relaxing and and inviting. It took us back to a time where people truly spent quality time together.....Norma took us in as her own and made sure that everything was just perfect! I have 3 more daughters to be married and would use The Lee House for them as well. I would just plan to stay longer. Visit The Lee House and experience her magic.
5 on September 24, 2010
The outside of the bed and breakfast is so beautiful and welcoming. The back yard is large but cozy with the big couches and well kept garden. The inside, is just as beautiful with the comfy couches, beautifully decorated and a view of the bay. I immediately felt comfortable and welcome. My room was...lets just say, that I forgot that I was there on business and was ready to curl up with a good book on my balcony. I unpacked and than had to leave to pick someone up at the airport and as I was heading out, Norma had just made chocolate chip cookies. I love kitchens and this is a kitchen to die for. Beautifully decorated with a red counter top, spacious and inviting. The next morning, breakfast was ready at the time I requested. I was served with a smile, coffee, orange juice, fruit, yogurt and morning paper to start. Then Norma brought out a beautful plate with homemade orange muffins, bacon and an egg cheese and ham casserole. Everything was homemade, fresh and hot. I sat at a cozy table overlooking the bay. I enjoyed my stay immensely. I would definitely return whether for business or pleasure and of course highly recommend Lee House. Lee House is not just beautiful and welcoming but also has a great history. Go and enjoy. You will not be disappointed.

I had the most amazing experience at the Lee House this past August. After months of watching the Gulf oil spill coverage, my fiance and I decided to change the location of our wedding reception. I choose the Lee House from pictures I saw on their website. A month before our wedding we visited the site in person and we were completely blown away. Immediately after entering the Inn you are hit with the warmth and coziness that Norma and Pat worked so hard to create. The furniture is comfortable and classy. Small details can be noticed in every room. The hardest decision was choosing which guests received the privilege of staying in each room. My grandmother was in a wheelchair and the handicap accessible room was comfortable and safe. It really put my mind at ease knowing that her suite handled her special needs while still looking beautiful. The bridal suite decorated in cool blues and white gave off the relaxing vibe of a high end spa. Every detail was thought of, from the robes, to the plentiful towels, right down to the facial clothes left to remove all the bridal make-up. Unfortunately for us it managed to rain for 4 days straight, right through our wedding day. Norma orchestrated the massive move of furniture to accommodate the ceremony inside the Inn. We had a beautiful altar in front of the fireplace and the large leather couches were arranged to create an aisle. The space was so large it easily served as altar, dance floor, and stage. The next morning Norma had brunch waiting for all the guests. Norma's famous bread pudding was included in the menu. YUMMY. Guests left the Inn that morning pleasantly filled with many of Norma's famous dishes. I loved my wedding. Thanks for everything! I am looking forward to spending my future anniversaries in the same bridal suite!

My husband found Lee's while searching for places to stay in Pensacola. We were only staying one night while in route home from Seaside. Because our stay was more of a "pit stop" we weren't expecting too much from our stay but we were pleasantly surprised by not only the b and b but the area as well. Lee's is a beautiful home in the historic area and the website does not do it justice. The room was beautiful and professionally designed with an amazing bathroom. Everything from the towels to bedding to bathroom fixtures was top notch. It is by far the best b and b we have ever stayed in. Perhaps the best part though were the owners. We were traveling with our 11 month old and were VERY accommodating. They were very nice and did everything they could to make sure our stay was pleasant. They provided a pack n play, toys and even offered to set up the sprinkler for our son to play in. This is not your typical b and b cluttered with antiques- it is a beautiful, new, modern home with owners who went out of their way to make our stay exceptional. If we ever our in the area again, there is no doubt we will be back. Thank you Pat and Norma for your hospitality!

We stayed at the Lee House the weekend of Nov. 20 for a wedding. The room was spacious and well appointed as were the common areas. Norma and Pat were friendly and very gracious hosts. They were attentative to details and the needs of all the guests who ranged in age from 8 to 92. The dining was first class, well presented and ample. We felt like we were at home and were part of the Lee House family.

Lee House is a Beautiful B & B ! The interior decorators did a gorgeous job, as each suite has its own unique design. We stayed in suite 4 and it was so comfy. My husband has M.D. and the ADA features were perfect. The proprietors, Norma and Pat Murry are so accommodating, Norma cooked up a delicious breakfast and Pat discussed the B&B'S architectural design, that boast using "Green" technology. We had a wonderful stay and look forward to our next visit.

Lee House is truly a home-away-from-home. Lee House is a modern delight to the eyes - a new building (with the comfortable accomodations we come to expect when paying a premium room rate)built to blend into the historic Pensacola area. The security Lee House affords the guest is outstanding - with the code I chose to access the system for the front door and our room. It was nice to not have to keep up with a key. Norma and Patrick Murray are rare B&B owners. As a hostess, she enjoys spending time with her guests and accomodating their needs. For us, it was beach towels and chairs as well as breakfast at 12:30 on a Sunday afternoon. Our son asked permission to play the 1859 Steinway in the Gathering Room. Thereafter, Norma frequently requested his piano skills on her rare piano. Her breakfasts were outstanding with a variety of delicious and nutritious delicacies. Daily, there was a freshly baked treat available in the kitchen. As a frequenter of B&Bs, I have never been invited into the kitchen. Norma is the first to design her kitchen to accomodate her guests in the "inner sanctum" around her red half-moon islands. Lee House has been open less than a year. I fear that, next year, it will be difficult to get a room as word spreads of this excellent and inviting home-away-from-home. Worth every penny! Delightful in every way!

Awesome! The Lee House has just opened. Pat and Norma Murray are wonderful host and hostess. Because Norma also runs a number of area lunch restaurants, I was told the food would be fantastic...and it was! Norma is Pensacola's Martha Stewart. The architectual features, the family momentos and the archeological artifacts found as the property was being built adorn the gathering room...it took days to see and appreciate them all. My room was beautiful, designed by an area artist, as all the suites were. The stone and ceremic work in the bathroom was breathtaking. The view from the front porch overlooks the bay, getting the sun for most of the day. Thanks so much for a wonderful, relaxing stay.
