Inside, enjoy beautiful antiques, a comfortable Queen bed, and new hardwood floors in this very private room.

We stayed at the westcott for 3days and loved it... all the staff and owners. Were amazing and I must say the breakfast was delicious we really felt like we were at home they gave us great advice were to eat and tour. They even booked our reservations for us this is definitely the place for us when we return to St. Augustine. Again and the desserts by the door at night just top it off wonderful massages too! Can't wait to go back :) Thanks, Rod&Prissy


A great find!!!

What started out as a last minute thought, to how to spend the weekend turned out to be one of the most enjoyable experiences at any Bed and Breakfast. The staff and food was exceptional. The room was clean and decored for the area, and what a fantastic view from the front porch.....watching the ships and horse carriage rides go by. Certainly will return again!!

Bayfront Westcott went out of their way to accommodate my handicap husband. They treated us with care and respect and took care of our every need! I would highly recommend the inn to everyone looking to stay in historic area of St Augustine. I will no longer stay anywhere else, when I visit St Augustine!
