Great Bed and Breakfast in St. Augustine

5 on December 13, 2014

This Bed and Breakfast is an historic looking well-run beautiful place to stay. The rooms are well appointed --ours had many beautiful antiques. The bed was comfortable and the linens made me wish I had some like that at home. The owners made us feel so welcome. They are extremely helpful in making a visit to the city just perfect. The staff is competent and really cares whether you are having a great stay. The food is good and the complimentary cocktail hour at 5 is most appreciated after a long day of wonderful adventures in the city. Highly recommended.


Great B & B in St. Augustine

4.8 on December 06, 2014

Bayfront Westcott House B & B is a beautiful place with extremely nice staff, great happy hour with hors d'oeuvres and an even better breakfast. Seating outside for breakfast, watching the water and the boat go by, is very relaxing. Great place to stay, within walking distance to main street.


Bayfront Westcott House is the most awesome place to stay in St Augustine

Fantastic Anniversary Getaway

4.2 on November 11, 2014

I was planning a short getaway for my parents' 52 wedding anniversary. They love St Augustine so I started searching the internet for B&B's which they also love. This B&B seemed to have high rating so I contacted them to explain I wanted to send my parents there for a getaway where most every detail was taken care of for them. The super nice owners were more than happy to accommodate my various requests which included not only the selection of nice room, but gift certificates for dinners each evening, a custom-made anniversary cake delivered to their room, a romantic horse & carriage ride, a pass for the town trolley each day, as well. The really went out of their way to make sure my parents thoroughly enjoyed not only their stay at the B&B, but their entire trip to St. Augustine. I would highly recommend the Bayfront Westcott House based on the feedback from my parents.


Wonderful B and B

5 on November 06, 2014

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at the Bayfront Westcott House. The service was excellent, the staff fantastic, the food great, and the view was wonderful! We were in walking distance from shopping, restaurants, museums and the historic area of St Augustine. We will definitely be back!!


Westcott House

5 on October 23, 2014

Excellent. We return each time we visit St Augustine. The accomodation and staff are of the highest order. All the rooms are beautifully appointed and the staff are exceptionally helpful and friendly. Westcott House is ideally situated in the town with quick and easy access to the shops, restaurants and nightlife. Talking of nightlife are a point of visiting Tradewinds on Saturday night. Great music. Great people. A real fun night out. We'll be back. The Hoods and Hilsons from Scotland


Weekend Getaway

Recent weekend getaway for a friends birthday and was pleasantly surprised. Previously stayed at the Hilton and this was a significant improvement. Definitely on the "go back to" list.


Bayfront Westcott House Never Disappoints

5 on September 24, 2014

We recently visited Westcott House for our anniversary and found it to be the same wonderful place it has been every time we've stayed there. Very conveniently located in the historic district, the lovely inn is impeccably kept, beautifully furnished and exemplifies casual elegance in every way. It is very possible that you will find that you never use your car during your visit as there is so much to see and do within a few minutes walk. The many porches, verandas and patios provide a wonderful place to relax and unwind. Joy and Andrew are wonderful hosts and they have surrounded themselves with a friendly, courteous and professional staff who all work wonderfully together to provide you the best experience possible. The evening social hour is very enjoyable and the refreshments are wonderful and beautifully presented. The breakfasts served at Westcott House always reflect the character of the inn blending culinary creativity and nutrition in a sumptuous selection. They also gladly prepare breakfasts to order should you find that the day's selection is not what you desire. We have always been thrilled to visit the Bayfront Westcott House and we are sure if you choose to visit that you too will find that she never disappoints.

The mysterious charm of Anastasia’s Room will put you at odds with yourself in terms of whether to go out on the town or just stay in your room!

Just steps away from the 2nd-story porch with swing. This romantic retreat features a Queen bed, fireplace, comfy chairs in front of the aforementioned bay window, and a flat-screen tv.
