I took my 15 year old daughter to St. Augustine and we stayed at the Kenwood Inn. She fell in love with the city a couple of years ago and we have been planning this trip ever since. I couldn't have picked a more perfect place to stay. We felt equally at home and like royalty at the same time at the Kenwood Inn. We will be back!! I'm hoping to make it an annual trip! Thank you to everyone who took care of us and especially Pat, who made us feel special but really comfortable too!

My husband and I stayed at the inn to celebrate our anniversary. Pat the owner, was warm and friendly, a perfect host. The staff went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable. Our room was clean and wonderfully decorated. The shower with the 3 shower heads was a great feature and the beds are so comfortable. The breakfast was terrific and there was a lot of variety. For us it was a wonderful relaxing stay. We felt as comfortable as if we were in our own home.

We had a lot of family in town for our daughters wedding and Pat helped me so much in planning everyone's stay. We also had their rehearsal dinner at the Kenwood Inn and Pat did a great job setting this up and seeing that everything went well and the food was delicious. I can't thank her enough for all her hard work and for shareing the beautiful Kenwood Inn with us, everyone had a great time and enjoyed their stay.

Lovely B&B with the most welcoming hostess. Pat made you feel welcome from the moment we met her. The Inn is lovely and very homey. We were two other couples and completely enjoyed our stay. I am not a big B&B fan but would go stay here again in a second. Only downside is during the week there is only one choice for breakfast and several of our group did not care for what was served. It would have been good to have muffins, toast or bagels available as an alternative.

We stayed in the "French Suite", beautiful, and comfortable! Breakfast the next morning was delicious, and unique! Liked our stay so much, asked about staying a second night! Unfortunately, there were no vacancies ( due to a wedding party ). Pat went above and beyond, to find us a room, at a different B & B! We will most definitely return!
5 on November 06, 2013
Owner/Innkeeper Pat is the most welcoming, warm & friendly innkeeper I've ever had the pleasure meet. One immediately feels like the Kenwood Inn is 'home'. Our room was lovely, cozy, well appointed with every need. Breakfast each morning was delicious, wonderful way to start the day. There is no place else I'd ever stay in St. Augustine after being at The Kenwood Inn!! Shhh,don't tell--I want there to be a vacancy the next time I go back :)

Was a wonderful experience from beginning to end. The food was better than mine and I am good cook. Took my 110lb. lab and he liked it to. I will go back.

My wife and I took a quick one day "getaway" at Kenwood and it was just what we needed. Friendly hostess, clean and beautiful room, bikes available, reasonably priced and a short walk to the main happenings. R. Nelson

our first time to try B&B for a weekend getaway, and this is my best breakfast meal ever!. Pat was so accomodating and hospitable. Love the place too!
5 on October 01, 2013
This was our first time at a Bed & Breakfast, and the Kenwood Inn was wonderful and everything we expected it to be. Pat and her staff were awesome, the breakfast each morning was out of this world fantastic. We stayed in the Lavender Room on the second floor; it was nice and very quaint for just me and my husband. The Kenwood Inn is located in the Historic District, in perfect walking distance to site seeing, restaurants and shopping! We will be back (Thank you Pat for making our stay special)!! Denise & Chuck

This was my husband and my first experience at a bed and breakfast, and it was perfect. The room was gorgeous, the house was beautiful, the staff was courteous, and the food was delicious. Ms. Pat went out of her way to make us feel at home. My husband decided to surprise me with a few extras, and Ms. Pat was right there to help him with all the plans. She was very knowledgeable about the town and always had suggestions for places to eat. We could not have asked for a better experience.

My husband and I have been to St Augustine a few times in the past and have always loved the B&B's. The Kenwood Inn is no exception. Pat was a gracious host, a great cook, and a wonderfully kind and helpful person. The room was lovely as well. We had a balcony which overlooked the bay which was an added bonus. Unfortunately, it rained quite frequently during our stay, so the pool never happened for us. Just to give you an idea of how great Pat was, while walking on the cobblestone streets, my husband's sneakers got so wet that he had to buy another pair of shoes. While we were out doing that, Pat graciously dried the shoes in the dryer! You can't beat that for hospitality. She also hugged us hello and goodbye when we left. Great person! Great B&B! Great, albeit wet, time! B&G Boynton Beach Florida

We stayed in St Augustine for five nights in this beautiful bed and breakfast "Kenwood Inn" This one is located close to the waterfront and all attractions and it is very easy to walk and visit the town from that part of the town. Very beautiful room and a delicious breakfast. We also appreciated the welcome and we want also to thank Charly who helped us to carry our heavy luggages..A great time in this part of our travel.
5 on September 16, 2013
We had a girls weekend here and had a great time. Pat (the owner) was so helpful and kind. The breakfast was delicious as well. Everything lived up to our expectations, even exceeding it on some levels! Thanks Kenwood Inn, we'll be back!
5 on September 15, 2013
The decor in the Kenwood Inn is lovely, the sleeping rooms are delightful, but what we keep talking about are the fabulous breakfasts that owner Pat provides, all served elegantly each day. We were there 5 nights and each day had a different gourmet breakfast. You can't go wrong staying here. It is a most pleasant place. Beds were comfortable, and we also enjoyed just relaxing around the pool, with its nice foliage around the perimeter. We would definitely go back for anothe stay.
5 on September 13, 2013
We booked our stay at The Kenwood Inn specifically because we wanted to be in the old town. It turned out to be the ideal stay! Pat sent us directions that led us right to the door, and greeted us on our arrival. She filled us in on the weekend activities, including the first Friday Art Walk. It was great!! Parking is nearby, so it was all very convenient. The room was clean, the bad was so comfortable it was hard to get up, but we had to have breakfast! The food was divine, and the service was great. The Kenwood is very convenient to the old town, and we walked all over. We will definitely return!
5 on September 12, 2013
My husband and I stayed for three nights at the beautiful Kenwwod Inn in the Old English Suite. Everything was really just perfect from the super cleanliness, beautiful decor, very comfortable bed and delicious food -- but mostly Pat herself. We felt like for three days this was our home, too, and we can't wait to come back!!
5 on September 12, 2013
This was our first time staying at a Bed and Breakfast.. Just loved it. Pat and her daughter made us feel like one of the family. There were no strangers . All the guests came down to breakfast and we got to know everyone in a casual manner. It was an A+ experience !
4.4 on August 22, 2013
We spent 2 nights and days at the Inn. We were more than pleased with the room, atmosphere, service and breakfast provided by Pat and her staff. We arrived just as the Kenwood was preparing for a major retrofit and garden renovations. the work was being done right outside our window...and one would not have known it if we hadn't been told all about it. That is the type of care and attention that the Inn provides to its patrons! The location is perfect...walk to everything and off site parking included. The Kenwood Inn provides most of the same amenities that the competitors provide...except the Kenwood has Pat and her staff and that puts it FAR ahead of the others.
4.2 on August 16, 2013
Pat and her staff were amazing. Breakfast was out of this world!
4.4 on August 14, 2013
Wonderful location near to all the historic sites. Staff was so friendly and pleasant. Rooms comfortable and enjoyed the stay. So charming. Would stay there again for sure.
5 on August 08, 2013
This was my first B & B experience as well as my first time into the St. Augustine area. We had a delightful visit and really enjoyed Pat's hospitality there. The Brass Room was very comfortable and well decorated....spotlessly clean as well. The breakfasts were delicious and graciously served on lovely china. We were very pampered and would definitely want to stay there again if we are in that area.
5 on August 07, 2013
We recently celebrated an incredible family 80th Birthday for my Husband over 4th of July at the Kenwood. We have stayed at several lovely B&Bs in St Augustine and many around the world. We find this one to be the most enjoyable, the most welcoming, and the one to which we continue to return. The owner, Pat Dobsz, gives new meaning to warm hospitalityand attention to detail. The decor we experiece as charming,elegant and comfortabe. Our grandchildren were thrilled to be given permission to give us a little concert on the grand piano! .......They seem to be constantly updating.... Since this place was built in 1865 that wouldn't seem unusual but we found some of the latest plumbing additions to be particularly interesting..... facinating and FUN.......If you have ever seen the t.v. ad of the plumber enjoying the fruits of his labor after installing the crazy shower you will get my drift! Breakfast is always such a treat. The courtyard garden and coi pond the perfect setting for anything. We also enjoy the pool and evening gettogethers. Staff are cheerful and upbeat. This is a happy place. No surprise this place garners so many kudos!

The Kenwood Inn is super- clean, conveniently located, and staffed with helpful and friendly people. Dave (the inn sitter) was especially thoughtful with regard to making sure that the restaurants he recommended were great. And the breakfasts in the morning were wonderful - who could imagine that breakfast could be so good. We stayed in the Elizabeth room - large, extremely clean and very quiet. We definitely recommend this inn.
5 on July 29, 2013
Wonderful stay the The Kenwood Inn. Our room was not available when we arrived so Pat upgraded us to the Olde English Suite. Lovely stay.
5 on July 22, 2013
My husband and I stayed in the captains suite. The room was spacious. The atmosphere at the inn was relaxing and friendly. The breakfast was delicious and filling. We had cereal, fresh fruit with frozen yogurt topping. A delicious egg and spinach casserole. The bed was wonderful and we slept peacefully. Definetely will come. Thank you Pat for a wonderful experience and your dinner suggestion. Catch 27 was great.
5 on July 02, 2013
I had emailed Pat about our possible stop in St Augustine on our way to Fort Lauderdale. When she emailed me back, I knew that this is the place where we were suppose to go! We spent the first night of our vacation at the Inn, and it was fantastic! We so enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere, the location for our walk down town, and the love of life that Pat shows to all of her guests. The patio was absolutely beautiful for breakfast in the morning. Thank you for sharing your house with so many, but thank your for the blessings given to your guests. If you have any question at all if you should stay here... BOOK THE KENWOOD WITH NO REGRETS!
5 on July 01, 2013
My husband and I have always enjoy visiting St. Augustine for a romantic getaway. We have tried several different lodging options over the years, including the best rated Bed & Breakfasts and the well known and pricey- Casa Monica Hotel. We are so happy to have found the BEST PLACE TO STAY,and honestly can't say enough GREAT things about the Kenwood Inn and Pat!! We recently stayed on two occasions during the months of April & May. Once by ourselves and once with my brother from N.C. and his girlfriend. Both stays were AMAZING and ALWAYS exceeded our expectations! First of all, the Inn is just lovely, bright & warm ! Plenty of room to spread out and relax by the pool alone (btw:only inn in St. Augustine with a pool), or enjoy the many comfy spots to kick back and enjoy a glass of wine before hitting the town. The rooms are BEAUTIFULLY decorated (not lacey & frilly!) extremely CLEAN (smells fresh & wonderful) the beds are VERY comfortable and the lush linens are a plus! (Note:Some of the rooms have very high- end bath rooms with rain showers and designed like a luxury hotel!) The hospitality is the BEST you will find ANYWHERE, let alone St. Augustine! Pat -the Inn Keeper/Owner of Kenwood will make you feel right at home the moment you walk in the door! She is kind and genuine about her passion and it shows! Did I mention what an amazing cook she is? You will not find a better home cooked breakfast anywhere! You will be amazed at the HUGE spread she puts out for you every morning! It's Delicious, and I'm a VERY picky eater! I could go on and on about our "FAVORITE PLACE TO BE ALONE" but you just need to check it out yourselves! I promise you will NOT be disappointed and the moment you check out,... you'll be thinking of your next trip to the Kenwood Inn.!
5 on June 28, 2013
I LOVED staying at the Kenwood Inn! My group came here for a short weekend in June and I wish we could have stayed longer! The breakfasts were phenomenal and the owner, Pat, is such a sweetheart and really wants to make sure you're happy. I will definitely be staying here again soon :)
5 on June 24, 2013
I would rec this inn to all my friends and family,looking forward to our next visit,the breakfast is the best in St Aug
5 on June 21, 2013
We have stayed that the Kenwood many times---each stay is better than the last---this is a must for all visitors to St Augustine---if the Kenwood does not have rooms available you should plan your trip for when they do--it is simply the best there is in St Augustine---or anywhere else we have stayed for that matter---the rooms, the food, the setting---all phenomenal---it doesn't get any better than this
5 on June 04, 2013
Pat was a wonderful host! it is a quaint and warm environment. She goes above and beyond! Breakfast was always exquisite. She is very knowledgeable about the city. She gave wonderful recommendations for dining and even made reservations for us! We will definitely will be returning! Thank you Pat......Johnna and Robert

My two sisters and I arrived in St Augustine on a miserable torrential rainy day. The weather made it impossible to do much touring but the bright spot of our trip was the experience at the Kenwood. In spite of the weather they were very hospitable and served a great breakfast. I would definitely recommend it and use them again.
5 on June 03, 2013
Owner Pat Fantastic, very gracious, pays attention to everyones needs. Our room opened up to balcony where the hammock was greatly used by my honey and I.Breakfast 5 Stars on the magical porch.Pool very nice, where we drank champagne with cheese and crackers, while enjoying new friendships of Pat's quests. I have stayed in several B&B's St Augustine, by far this is the BEST in Town. Can't wait to visit again. Alway Our Best, Kim and John...
5 on June 03, 2013
Me and my husband enjoyed 2 splendid nights in The Kenwood Inn. We have truly loved our stay and Pat - was the Best Hostess in the world. Our suite was spic & span, we had the "Captain Suite" with wonderful patio and views of the lush courtyard. We also enjoyed the in suite massage that can be ordered thru the Inn, and horse carriage ride. The location if great since we could take a 1 min stroll and be in the midst of the St. Augustine tourist area but The Kenwood Inn has very private setting, so you can enjoy a quiet evening If you want to. I truly loved the location, we looked at other Inn's while we stayed and I really was very pleased with our choice and will definitely come back again.
4.4 on June 03, 2013
How can you top the sound of carriage horse hooves clopping on cobbles being the only late night traffic noise?
5 on June 02, 2013
When we first stepped in the front doors we fell in love. Not only with the B&B, but with Pat, the owner. She made us feel like family. She went way beyond the normal to make our stay the best ever. We are now planning our intimate dream wedding at the Kenwood Inn. I can't wait. I know with Pat's planning and hospitality, it will be perfect. I couldn't think of a nicer place to stay. I rate it excellent! Lisa & Brian, Hendersonville, NC
4.2 on May 25, 2013
Very personally involved owner. Fantastic breakfast each morning on the outside patio. A bit too cool for us to try the pool but it looked inviting. Walking distance to the historic district. I highly recommend this B&B.
5 on May 20, 2013
Absolutely amazing experience! We could not have picked a better place to Honeymoon. Service and staff was incredible and so enjoyable we did not want to go home. Looking forward to spending our first Christmas as husband and wife at the Kenwood Inn this year!
5 on May 19, 2013
We arrived at the Kenwood Inn on Friday May 10th and were welcomed with open arms by Pat. What a Beautiful place to share mine and my Husbands first B&B experience! The bed was super comfy, the breakfast was delicious and the location is so accessible to site seeing, dining etc., and with Pat's expertise with St. Augustine we felt at ease! I can not wait to go back a second time! We Love you Pat & The Kenwood Inn!!
5 on May 16, 2013
The Kenwood Inn is absolutely beautiful. Every time I visit St Augustine, this is where I stay. The owner, Pat is an amazing chef and her breakfasts will exceed your every expectation. Also The Kenwood is located just a short walk from the square downtown! A great location! Don't bother trying to drive and find parking for dinner, leave your car and take a lovely stroll to any of the great restaurants downtown. So basically.. If you're coming to St Augustine, stay at The Kenwood Inn, lounge by the pool with a drink, walk downtown, eat, sleep, and repeat.
4.8 on May 12, 2013
Amazing place, from the decoration to the location and of course the owner Pat. The best place in San Agustin. And them you get an extraordinary breakfast at the magic garden. I will give 7 stars if i could.
5 on May 11, 2013
Pat is a wonderful host; so kind and helpful. B&B in a convienent and quiet location in the historic district. It has a nice pool, balcony with hammocks, and private courtyard. Breakfast is excellent and can be enjoyed inside or in the courtyard. We have stayed several times and are booked for another visit soon.
4.6 on May 11, 2013
We were so delighted to visit The Kenwood Inn! It was welcoming, beautifully appointed, and our room was so lovely. A wonderful combination Of antiques with modern conveniences. I loved Our rainforest shower and beautiful floating bowl sink. Pat was delightful and we cannot Wait to return.

fe and I celebrated our first wedding anniversary at The Kenwood Inn in St. Augustine Florida. I surprised my wife by selecting their romance package with fresh cut flowers delivered to our room on our first day. Pat the inn owner, did a wonderful job of getting the flowers and making our dinner reservations for our anniversary. Everything was handled with elegance and it really made a great time in St. Augustine! The inn itself is beautifully decorated and our room was exquisite with a balcony overlooking the street. The room was beautifully decorated which made it feel like home. The breakfast at the inn was outstanding with fresh fruits and waffles one morning to Eggs Benedict with a yogurt parfait the next. If you are going to St Augustine and want a 5 star B & B Experience, you have to stay at The Kenwood Inn Period!
5 on April 11, 2013
We had a wonderful weekend stay at the Kenwood Inn. Pat (the owner) made us feel very welcome. The location was perfect for walking to the historic sites, but yet far enough removed that it was quiet in the evening. Awesome breakfast, too!
5 on April 05, 2013
I have been here a couple of times and it is the best place ever. The environment is just beautiful and relaxing. Its in the heart of downtown St. Augustine which is also nice and everything is in walking distance. The staff is wonderful and lets not talk about the rooms. Each room is different and i like that. You feel homey when you are here. I will definetly be back.
5 on April 05, 2013
I had an amazing weekend at The Kenwood Inn! The breakfast was to die for, my room was clean, and the staff was very helpful. Pat, the owner is an amazing woman and she made us feel right at home. I can't wait to come back and enjoy another great weekend!
5 on March 28, 2013
We enjoyed 2 nights at the Kenwood Inn. Pat makes you very comfortable and breakfast was wonderful, especially the Kenwood eggs. Wine served every evening, and convient location makes this an excellent choice.
5 on March 24, 2013
We enjoyed every moment of our stay at the Kenwood Inn. Pat, the owner, made us feel so welcome and even called and made our reservation for dinner at the Columbia restaurant. Our room was cozy and beautiful. The breakfast was scrumptious! It is great to wake up to the aroma of coffee brewing! We enjoyed sitting around the dining room table visiting with other guests over breakfast! And the location is great-within walking distance to everything! Highly recommend this B&B. We plan to go back!
4.8 on March 19, 2013
The rooms, location, service, food and accomodations were wonderful making the trip to St Augustine wonderful!
5 on March 18, 2013
My husband and I stayed here for the weekend to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. The location was ideal for walking to all of the nearby shops and restaurants. The inn was very warm and inviting and all of the staff were exceptionally polite and accommodating. The gourmet breakfast each morning was sensational and very creative. My husband and I would highly recommend Kenwood to anyone wanting a very special weekend together.
5 on March 18, 2013
The main reason I chose the Kenwood Inn was that it had some two-bedroom, two-bathroom suites which seemed ideal for my friend and I who were meeting for a mini-vacation in St. Augustine. This B & B turned out to be wonderful in all respects: awesome breakfasts, comfortable rooms and common areas, and an extremely helpful innkeeper, Pat Dubosz, who helped us with restaurant reservations and scheduling a massage. Another positive was the camaraderie with the other guests, young and old, all of whom were delightful. The place really was a home away from home and I'd love to return some day.
5 on March 13, 2013
I recently visited St. Augustine for the first time. I was fortunate to have stayed at the Kenwood Inn. The Inn is beautiful (there is a grand piano in the bay window in the living room), comfortable, and clean. It has a pool, which is a rarity for a B&B. I stayed in the Old English Room, which has a private porch, a whirlpool tub, a sitting area in front of the fireplace, and a crystal chandelier.. I looked forward to relaxing in my elegant room after a busy day. I ate breakfast each morning in the sunny courtyard. The gourmet breakfasts, which included fresh fruits, baked goods, and a main dish, were amazing. Pat, the owner, cheerfully modified each breakfast to make it onion-free for me. She constantly refilled my tea cup. Pat is the perfect innkeeper. She makes you feel at home without hovering. She had great suggestions for places to visit and restaurants. She offered to bring the antiques I purchased to a shipping place so that I do not have to miss a minute of my vacation. She treated me -- and I suspect all of her guests -- like we were special. Her staff immaculately cleaned my room and graciously carried my luggage to and from the cab. I plan to return frequently to St. Augustine and the Kenwood Inn..
5 on March 12, 2013
I will not visit St. Augustine unless I can stay at The Kenwood Inn. It is by far the most comfortable, warm and inviting place I have ever stayed in while traveling. Pat is the best hostess and makes you feel like a part of her family. I can't wait to go back again! I've been there several times and never ever have I been disappointed. The saddest part is leaving!! But I'll be back!!
5 on February 23, 2013
The Kenwood Inn is such a beautiful home with an owner who makes you feel like family the moment you enter. We love the delicious breakfasts, comfortable rooms, perfect location, and the ease of the place. My husband and I have stayed here a few times to enjoy a relaxing, romantic weekend away. Recently we took our two children with us and they loved it too....feeding the koy fish was their favorite!!!! :). We can't wait to go back!
5 on February 21, 2013
Great place to stay. Pat is a delight. Everything spotless. Delicious breakfast. Comfortable bed and pillows! Definitely staying at Kenwood Inn again. Thanks Pat!
4.0 on February 18, 2013
If we're lucky enough to return to St. Augustine, we'll stay here again. Location is so central (though quiet) that we easily walked to sights and restaurants. Room was comfortable and I expect it will be even better in the very near future when the guest quarters will be entirely redone, including updating the bathrooms. Gracious, informative hostess who volunteered to make trolley and restaurant reservations.
5 on February 18, 2013
I have stayed all over the country. This was by far the best ever. Clean, safe feeling, friendly, helpful, great breakfast (and I don't like breakfast usually) everything was wonderful. We walked everywhere. The only problem was parking, but that is St. Augustine. There is a lot for The Kenwood Inn, I didn't have to find space on the street. There is a loading and unloading area in front, which they help with. I would without a doubt stay there again
5 on February 17, 2013
We enjoyed a wonderful 7 night stay at the Kenwood Inn! Pat greeted us warmly upon our arrival, gave us an amazing history lesson of the city, made a few great recommendations for our first night's outing, and it only got better from there. Breakfasts are phenomenal, the rooms are like sanctuaries, and afternoon wine is a real treat. Pat and her staff are professional, gracious and accommodating. We didn't have a car and found the Inn to be perfectly situated - tucked away but within walking distance to town, the trolley, and all the action. All of Pat's recommendations were spot on - I can't imagine our first trip to St. Augustine could have been more enjoyable if we had stayed elsewhere. In fact, the gentleman who drove us back to the airport, a local, told us the Kenwood is the best B&B in St. Augustine. We didn't need validation at the point, but it made us feel good that we got it right!
5 on February 10, 2013
Pat went out of her to be helpful. The Inn is a delightful step back in time and we enjoyed it immensely.

My son's wedding was in St. Augustine in December. We wanted to find somewhere to stay for all of my son's groomsmen and family. When we discovered the Kenwood Inn we knew it was perfect! After talking to Pat, the Innkeeper, I felt even more comfortable with my decision. We had about 30 people there for the weekend and just getting all the rooms assigned was a difficult task. Pat did a wonderful job assigning the rooms and everyone was thrilled.. I felt very fortunate to get to see each and every room at the Inn. Each is unique and beautifully decorated. My husband and I stayed in Caitlin's room on the first floor. It was perfect in every way. The breakfasts Pat prepared each morning were fabulous. At 5:00 p.m. each day, it was "wine hour." We enjoyed siting on the veranda with a glass of wine just taking in the beautiful atmsphere. Both Pat and her staff were there for anything any of us needed. We also hosted a brunch at the inn the morning following the wedding and it was the perfect finish to a wonderful weekend. Pat made the brunch special and the food and atmosphere could not have completed the weekend any better. I cannot give Pat and her staff enough praise. They made our weekend the best ever and we loved every minute of it! Barbara Nelson, Dallas, Ga

My husband and I stayed at the Kenwood for our honeymoon years ago and decided to revisit for an anniversary trip. It was even better than before! Pat is possibly the nicest and most genuine person you will ever meet. Anything from warming our leftovers, to utensils for our balcony table, she was such a help. You never once feel intrusive or uncomfortable. We are a younger couple and it is less common for our age group to stay at B&B's but I hope to change that! The food was beyond amazing. Delicious quiche with fresh fruit one day and a gourmet breakfast buffet the next. With all of the upgrades to the rooms and bathrooms, the place looks 5+ Stars! We stayed in the room with the new private balcony with lounge chairs and outdoor dining and I dream of going back just to take a nap outside and listen to the horses slowly walk by. I have always and will always recommend the Kenwood to anyone who will listen!!

Are you staying in St. Augustine? If the answer is yes, I recommend the Kenwood Inn Bed and Breakfast. The location is perfect and you'll find yourself immersed in the Old City. The Inn Keeper, Pat, is warm and welcoming from the second you walk through the front door. My husband and I felt as if we were staying at our Aunt Patty homes. The daily homemade breakfast is delicious! We really enjoyed using their complimentary bicycles. Our room was quaint, cozy and clean. We'll have to return to use their pool during the summertime, since we visited in the winter. You won't regret your decision to stay here. :) - Melanie and John C.
5 on January 21, 2013
The Kenwood Inn is located within walking distance to everything in downtown St. Augustine. The most inconvenient thing is the parking lot is about 2 blocks away but if you are afraid of a little walking you shouldn't go to St. Augustine. The service, food, staff were great. The location is convenient. I have no complaints at all. We'll be going back and staying there again.

Pat made our family reunion perfect in every way with lasting wonderful memories. Prior to our Christmas reunion with our daughters and their families, we went over to St. Augustine in August to make arrangements. We fell in love with The Kenwood Inn and the warm welcome we received from Pat. We returned at Christmas with our families to a most relaxing, memorable holiday. Pat had organized and prepared our Christmas dinner with top quality service. She made arrangements with a local photographer for us and met us at The Kenwood Inn for family photos. Our rooms were all together with a separate hallway so that we could close the one door with all our bedroom doors open to each other. The rooms all faced the wrap around porch, we gave our family privacy. Each morning our breakfast was served in the sun room with just our family. The breakfast was always delicious, well prepared and very fancy, not the normal eggs. The rooms were clean & warm and had so much character as did the whole house. Pat was an amazing hostess and look forward to another stay while at St. Augustine.

AAA+ ; 6 star rating for The Kenwood Inn, St. Augustine, Florida. Our first impression was elegance as we walked through the front doors, that impression was confirmed each day of our stay. Pat, the owner is such a wonderful person, who takes a genuine interest in making sure her guest feel right at home. We stayed there December 27-30, 2012, the Inn was beautifully decorated for Christmas, every room of the Inn is so welcoming and impeccable. Charlie greeted us on our arrival escorting us to our immaculately clean and beautifully furnished rooms. Both dining room tables were set to perfection with linen napkins, good china and, glassware the breakfast is definitely a gourmet spread and different each morning; The Inn is in walking distance to the historic sites and a short car ride to the beach and lighthouse. I highly recommend staying here, Pat and her staff provide all guests “Excellence in Customer Service”.

My boyfriend and I wanted a little getaway before school resumed and takes my life over again. Pat did an amazing job of descreetly setting up a sweet carriage ride with a bottle of champagne and helped me surprise him by pretending she was giving him directions to our dinner reservation right next to the carriage, then sprung it on him that we needed a way to get there! It was awesome! The breakfasts were wonderful and Pat made the most perfect recommendations for where to go for dining and fun (we're both foodies!). We felt like she knew us perfectly, like a friend we've known for ages! And she was always available, but not intrusively so. We went for a more modern room and it was everything we had hoped for and more. And to top it off, the location is so close to everything, we only saw our car when unpacking when we arrived and packing when it was time to go! We are already looking at the calendar so we can plan our next visit!

A get-together with my sister from Georgia occurred recently at the Kenwood Inn. Having been to St. Augustine a number of times and staying at various properties, I must say that the Kenwood was a real treat. There are beautiful living areas to enjoy, sumptuous rooms from which to choose and even hammocks to lull you to sleep in the sun on an upstairs porch. Best of all, however, was the warm welcome extended by Pat, the owner and innkeeper. We intend to make this an annual adventure.

We loved staying at the Kenwood Inn. Pam, the owner welcomes you as family, introduces you to other guests so you share good experiences , gives excellent recommendations and is extremely helpful. we will recommend Kenwood Inn to any friend headed to St Augustine.

It is the again time to visit lovely St. Agustine in Christmas time. We were eager to stay again at the Kenwood. This charming, and wonderful place. We were lucky to find "our" room. Suite number 2 on the first floor. As always, the place looked impecable. All Christmassy, beautiful. As always the formal dining room set and ready beautifully in good taste. Several Christmas trees in different areas ... a dream. This place is like coming home. And I say this because if I had a home like this one, this is exactly like I would like it to be. Like other people, we have visited other Beds and Breakfasts here and in other places. However, THIS ONE IS SPECIAL, not only the place is beautiful, but the "feeling" is the right one. Cozy, lovely, welcoming ... and to add to all that, there is Pat - the owner. I believe she is the soul of the place. Warm and sincere, sweet and friendly, helpful, a friend. Pat makes you feel welcome, like family. This place is perfect. If you come to St. Augustine and don't stay in this place; you are missing something special.

My husband and I celebrated our 23rd wedding anniversary at Kenwood Inn. We have been there 3 times before and loved it. The weekend we went was the Nights of Lights. It was perfect. Pat is a gracious hostess and makes you feel at home. The experience was superb. The food was outstanding. Thank you Pat for a wonderful weekend! Pat and Bill

We decided to not go to Iowa as usual this as it was too soon since PopPops passing just 8 weeks prior...we were actually going to pretend is was not really Thanksgiving. Well, thanks to the amazing care, attention and genuine concern Pat and the folks at the Kenwood Inn give to their guests, we truly felt we were "at home" for Thanksgiving! We have such happy memories of Thanksgiving 2012!

We have been to many B & B's of time but this was the best of the best. From the time you are greeted at the front door to the very moment yo depart. It was like staying in you best friends home. Room was enchanting. Breakfast was outstanding. Pat (the onwer) makes you feel as thought your family. We hated to leave but plan on returning next summer.

The Kenwood Inn is a lovely home away from home. Stay for a full week so there is plenty of time to discover the history and beauty of St. Augustine. Leave the computers and paper work at home and enjoy.
5 on November 12, 2012
This was our first stay at a Bed & Breakfast. It was the most amazing time we have had in long while. Ms. Pat was the most gracious host ever! Everything was first class! We are definitely returning & bringing our family with us. The Kenwood Inn made our stay at St. Augustine the most memorable!
4.6 on November 09, 2012
We spent the weekend and were very pleased with Pat and her facility. The staff was also very friendly and helpful. We will be back.
5 on November 02, 2012
We stayed overnight at the Kenwood Inn and were delighted with its upkeep and coziness. Breakfast was served in a 5 star fashion and the owner was attentive to our every need. I would like to have more reasons to visit St. Augustine so I could book at the Kenwood Inn again.
4.4 on October 24, 2012
This was our first trip to St Augustine and staying in a Bed and Breakfast. I would highly recommend it, the city and especially staying at the Kenwood Inn. Even the name is peaceful. We enjoyed the Country French style room and found it very comfortable. The home itself had a measurable amount of charm and history. At night the horse and carriage would pass by with vacationers as we sat on the wrap around porch off our room and you would feel like you went back in time. It really was a time to remember. Thank you Pat, for being such a gracious host and allowing us to share your home and enjoy your city. JoAnne and James OBrien

We had our wedding on 10-11-12 in the garden of the Kenwood Inn. Pat and her staff went above and beyond and made our wedding and stay at the inn so memorable. Our room was so lovely and cozy. The food was delicious and everyone is so kind and makes you feel so welcome. We can't wait to return. I would recommend a stay at the Kenwood to everyone! It is a MUST while in Saint Augustine.
5 on October 08, 2012
This was the most absolute best place to stay and to have our wedding. From the moment we arrived, early due to this bride being anxious, to right at the end. From the owner to the staff they are professional... make you feel like you are at home with family. Our wedding was absolutely beautiful. I would recommend for anyone to stay here and to enjoy in the warmth and comfort!!! Where each guest is friendly and warm towards each other!! I love this place and can't wait to go back for a weekend and visit!!!

My boyfriend and I recently celebrated our anniversary in St. Augustine and we had a wonderful experience thanks to the lovely people at the Kenwood Inn. We were promptly given a warm welcome by Pat, who was genuinely friendly and caring from the start. We were given a helpful map of the city and some suggestions for dinner and things to do that evening. We were also informed that someone else had reserved our original room at the exact same time online, but Pat had us set up for an even nicer room to make up for it. We stayed in the Olde English Suite on the first floor which was absolutely beautiful with tasteful decorations, a huge jacuzzi tub and a king-sized bed. We also enjoyed a private outdoor sitting area with the room. Breakfast in the morning was delicious and Pat's hospitality shined again as she shared all of the great events and activities that St. Augustine offers throughout the year. We will definitely be staying at the Kenwood again and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a great place to stay while enjoying the sights of a great historical city.

We spent 4 days at the Kenwood Inn and loved everything about it. Wonderful room and Pat and her staff are so friendly and helpful. Breakfast was special!

My Wife and I recently stayed at our favorit Bed and Breakfast in St. Augustine,FL. We have traveled to many locations and stayed at Bed and Breakfast Inns all over the US. The Kenwood Inn receives 5+ Stars from both of us in every categorie. From the moment you pull up to the Inn Pat is there to greet you with her award winning smile and you have to fight her her off from trying to carry all your luggage herself to your room. Pat immediately offers you a variety of refreshments and is eager to give you a tour of the rooms that are not occupied and the grounds are charming. The archeticture of the house is a delight and each room is decorated with an expert eye with no small detail let out. The staff is a delight and Pat provides the best advice for dinning and shopping in the area.( Directions are perfect) Her breakfasts are wonderful and very filling. Seconds are not a problem. The swimming pool is an extra bonus and the overall atmosphese is one of charm and grace. The entire experience is one not to be missed. We are anticipating are next stay and the only dificulty is trying to agree on which room we would like to stay in this time . Michael and Debra Wasson, Melbourne, FL

We had a fantastic time at the Kenwood Inn. My new brother and sister in-law had their bridal party with close freinds and family stay there and we took over! Pat was amazing and made all of us (and there was a lot of us) feel at home. She hosted the rehearsal dinner at the inn which added another special touch to the whole weekend. Her cooking is second to none and definitely do not miss her breakfasts. While we were all getting ready for the wedding Pat was running around with us making sure we had everything we needed. If something was missing Pat was there to help. By the end of the day she was no longer just a fantastic host but also a friend. We will def be back there next year for the 1 year anniversary. See you soon Pat!

I have stayed in many b&bs, 5 star hotels and luxury accommodations around the world, and The Kenwood Inn is one of my favorite places to stay. It is near the old, romantic, fun section of St. Augustine... you can walk anywhere. It is close to the water, a few miles from the beaches and the interior decor is perfect. This is the oldest b&b in the city and that makes is feel comfortable and romantic. Take your spouse, your wedding party, your parents, your friends to this wonderful special vortex of luxury and tranquility... you will love it!
5 on September 18, 2012
This is the most wonderful B&B. It has all the charm with wonderful ammenities. I first visited with my daughter-in-law. We stayed in the Green Room which allowed us each to have our own bathroom and bedroom with a door between us. It was just perfect for two girls. The following trip my husband and I took our son. We stayed in the suite on the 3rd floor. It was so spacious. The bathroom has a wonderful modern cool factor with the overall area being very quaint with a cute little balcony. My husband and I even had a King size bed. Something hard to find in B&B's. Breakfast both times was incredible. Pat is the most fabulous host there is. She makes you feel like you're coming home. St. Augustine is a great place to visit and this is the place. to stay.
5 on September 15, 2012
Stay was wonderful. Pat (who runs the inn) can not due enough to make your stay GREAT. Would stay again ASAP. If you are going to St. Augustine, a stay at the Kenwood makes the trip, it is right in the middle of everything. Thanks Pat for everything. Money well spent. Carol & Ken

My husband and I went to St. Augustine for a long weekend to relax. We usually stay at one of the hotels on the waterfront, but our daughter recommended the Kenwood so we decided to try it. We LOVED it!!! Pat is so gracious and kind. She made us feel at home the moment we walked in. The inn is beautiful and we can't wait to go back and try one of the other beautiful rooms! Breakfast was delicious and sitting on the patio our last morning there was so relaxing. The wine hour each evening is a great way to meet the other guests staying at the Inn. Having a pool to enjoy was great after an afternoonof sightseeing. We are looking forward to our next visit with Pat!!
5 on July 23, 2012
Our experience at the Kenwood Inn in St. Augustine was exceptional. Our Host, Pat, made you feel like one of her family members. The Inn was so clean and the breakfast Pat prepared each morning was "GOURMET". If you're looking for a GREAT B&B, the Kenwood would be my choice. THE POOL's.
5 on July 16, 2012
I am so beyond thrilled with my experience at the Kenwood Inn. Pat and everyone else on staff were friendly and helpful and just a pleasure to chat with! We stayed in the Captain's Room and it was big, the furniture was beautiful, the mattress was more confortable than the one I have at home, the shower was huge and the room had so much character. Loved all the details! The pool here as beautiful and perfect for relaxing after walking around all day. It was very hot in St. Augustine but the location is great for getting to the trolley, walking to restaurants and galleries, Flagler College, etc. Our breakfasts were delicious and so filling that we didn't really need lunch. Pat helped us make reservations for a dinner out and helped me plan a special surprise for my husband on our anniversary. I have never stayed in a b & b before and I LOVED it. We really felt like special guests. I can't say enough wonderful things about the Kenwood Inn!
5 on July 14, 2012
Thank you Pat and staff for making our stay with you memorable. Your inn is perfect in every way. It suited both my granddaughter and myself beyond expectations. We are looking forward to returning one of the days with the rest of the family!
5 on July 11, 2012
Hands down, one of the best B&B's I've stayed in. Top notch service and hospitality. From the minute we walked through the front door, it felt like home. Pat and her wonderful team at Kenwood went above and beyond any expectations we had, we were spoiled! Rooms and Inn were beautiful, and the breakfast was amazing. I searched the internet before choosing a B&B in ST. Augustine, and we hit the jackpot. We haven't been able to stop talking about our trip and we are already planning our return to Kenwood Inn.
4.6 on July 09, 2012
We found this place like a very relaxing and cozy place. The service is outstanding and I would recommend it to anyone visiting this amazing town. I am very excited to go back and spend more time, I felt like I was at home and treated like a Queen. Beautiful bed and breakfast, very clean and comfortable.
5 on July 08, 2012
This was our first stay at a Bed and Breakfast. What a fantastic experience. The staff and amennities were perfect. The location is wonderful- close to it all, but peaceful and quiet at night.
5 on July 05, 2012
Just returned from our second (and long overdue) stay at Kenwood. As before, we were treated not like royalty, but like old friends or, better, like family, with warm hugs and big smiles, great conversation and a hearty “Welcome home!” greeting. Pat goes out of her way to make our 11-year-old granddaughter feel right at home, offers plenty of tips on where to go based on all of our interests. Food is terrific, and she’s very accommodating about my husband’s gluten allergy. Location couldn’t be better — just far enough out of the downtown to be quiet at night, but close enough to walk to everything. We’d never stay anywhere else! Perfect combination of back-home hospitality and experienced professionalism.
4.8 on June 27, 2012
This is a must B and B in St. Augustine and it even has a inviting pool and spacious patio!
5 on June 26, 2012
We've been coming to the Kenwood for 2 years now.(soon to be 3). We not only love coming to the Inn, but we love coming home to family! because this is how Pat and Ted make you feel, as well as the rest of the staff. Wine social is also fun and you mix it up with the guests! We have also had the pleasure of meeting Pat's sister, mom and dad, as well as their daughter! Oh and the breakfast is also awesome! We tell everyone whenever you go to St Augustine, stay at The Kenwood Inn. Looking forward to coming home soon! Mary Frances and Erik.
5 on June 24, 2012
Great location, clean & well-maintained rooms, fabulous gourmet breakfasts, friendly staff...just a terrific experience. Don't waste time looking for the best B&B experience--just book it at the Kenwood and enjoy.
5 on June 20, 2012
Had a wonderful time! The room was cozy and beautiful. The food and customer service was outstanding! I would definitely stay there again!
5 on June 06, 2012
Because we have stayed in very nice hotels, we were skepitical to reserve a B&B. However, we realized to truly experience St. Augustine, we decided to stay at the Kenwood based on its reviews. As soon as we entered, my husband said, "This is like home!" The atmosphere was immediately warm and inviting thanks, as we would soon learn, to Pat and her wonderful staff. Pat, our gracious hostess and owner, made us so welcome. She is one special lady--knowledgeable, personable, and accommodating. We stayed three nights in the roomy and beautiful Country French Room which opens to a porch with a hammock. As other guests arrived, we peered into each other's rooms--all tastfully appointed and clean. We slept very well due to the quiet atmosphere and the extremely comfortable bed with luxurious soft sheets. Breakfasts, served in the garden, were scrumptious and filling lasting until dinner which could be had at one of the various restaurants nearby. We were able to walk practically everywhere. Needless to say, our first B&B experience was delightful. If we ever return to St. Augustine which is highly likely, we shall stay at the Kenwood Inn. One added note: I first tried to make a reservation on line, and the agent informed me after I had inquired that the rooms would not have private baths. I decided to directly call the Kenwood to see if this were true which it most definitely is not. Our bath was very pretty--nice hot shower, too. Every room had lovely and private bath accommodations.
5 on May 30, 2012
We were fortunate enough to spend 5 days at the Kenwood with Pat. She was so kind and helpful with pointing out some nice spots in St. Augustine. She was very accommodating and the inn was spacious, clean and comfortable. We stayed in the Captain's Suite. It was excellent. It was clean and spacious. The breakfasts were excellent! Pat made our vacation in St. Augustine better than we had expected! I would definitely recommend visiting The Kenwood!
4.4 on May 25, 2012
My husband and I just got back from spending our anniversary at The Kenwood Inn. We had been there years ago before the new owner, Pat, took over. Pat is a wonderful host and made us feel very welcome and comfortable. Every morning breakfast was delicious and it was very nice to be able to sit outside in the garden and eat. We had a lovely time. and would definitely go back.
5 on May 11, 2012
My husband and I enjoyed a delightful stay at The Kenwood Inn. I stayed a night with my sister in 1993, and looked forward to sharing this historic B&B with my husband. It exceeded our expectations. Pat presented a delicious breakfast in a very charming dining room. We would encourage anyone to stay at this Inn, but don't make the mistake we did. Don't book just one night! We really should have booked two or three, to get the flavor of the history and charm. Pat is incredibly warm and welcoming, and helpful to the tourist.
5 on May 11, 2012
There aren’t enough stars to properly rate my experience with the Kenwood Inn. My daughter wanted to have a small intimate wedding and decided to have it at the Kenwood Inn in St Augustine. She booked all the rooms at the Inn and asked Pat (the owner) to help with the arrangements. It didn’t take long to realize that Pat had done this before. While a daughter’s wedding is a very special event, Pat and her staff exceeded my wildest expectations. The setting was beautiful, the staff outstanding, and Pat made the experience one I will remember for the rest of my life. Thank you Pat for all you did for our family and friends. You are the best. Sincerely, Jack Beach

This relaxing ‘you’ve fallen back in time’ property is a stone’s throw from the Marina and a few minutes by foot from the hustle bustle of downtown. Parking is complimentary. The staff is incredible, kind, and accommodating. We visited several guest rooms and each was truly spectacular and magical. The nuances and details were perfection. I’ve traveled extensively, and yet, rarely have I seen a B&B which can cater to non-couples. The guests were an array of couples, friends, colleagues, and a family of 15. By the end of the first day we felt a part of this establishment. I can only imagine this is how this property has perceived itself from its inception in the 1800’s. What a beautiful thought that the walls have shared memories with guests for generations and is a place of peace and serenity. Beyond the décor of my beautiful bedroom (with a spacious patio and hammock) the actual bedding was amazing. I want to know how they captured the smell of a summer breeze touched by flowers into an immaculate bed. The breakfasts were also an experience. The owner (Pat) creates and cooks the most sumptuous dishes; which I can only compare to boutique restaurants in Europe. We took this meal shaded by 100 year old trees. An in-ground swimming pool is also on the premises but the weather was brisk. Bikes are available and were a great way to travel to locate hidden streets to view architecturally magnificent homes. In the evenings we’d return from an adventure for a glass of wine, lemonade, etc… to enjoy before readying for a night out. Leaving this property was a very sad day but I left with the understanding: a phone call and a short drive from Georgia means I can return to my second family and home….

I stayed here and it was great or i should say awesome Pat the owner is amazingly gracious from the moment you book it till leave ,room are clean and neat and cozy the food is great and not borring she make me want try inn keeping great find dont pass up a chance to stay if your in the area !!!XD

My husband and I visited The Kenwood Inn this weekend and had an absolutely wonderful experience. Ms Pat was a very gracious hostess and made us feel at home every moment that we were there. We stayed in the Elizabeth Suite, which was an absolutely beautiful room. Breakfast and social hour were wonderful. This Bed and Breakfast is about 2 blocks off the main drag so you can walk anywhere but you are far enough away from it that it you don't get all the noise. We will definitely be back. We are already planning our trip for the same time next year. What a perfect way to spend my 10th anniversary. This place is perfect for couples but is also kid friendly. Its the only bed and breakfast in St Augustine with a Swimming Pool.
4.0 on March 04, 2012
A beautiful and historic Inn in a lovely town. Found it by surfing the web, so always a bit unsure how it'll really turn out, but we were completely impressed. We were treated as family, shown how to access drinks (lemonade, etc) day or night. Our laundry was washed and folded for us. Breakfasts were delicious and the seating options were varied if you don't like the formal dining room setting. It was just a perfect stay, and we hated to have to leave.
5 on February 24, 2012
This was our third time staying at the Kenwood Inn. Our first visit was many years ago and was "just ok". We decided to stay here again last year because of its incredible location. We were pleasantly surprised to find new owners (Pat & Ted) and the wonderful changes they made to the inn -- it's so clean and updated with a home-like feeling. No "doilies and fake flowers" like other B&Bs where we've stayed. When we returned this most recent time, we could not believe they renovated more and how they have really changed over this inn to make it even more welcoming and beautiful. How is that possible? The breakfasts are quite delicious. I don't think we've had the same food twice; nor have we had anything we didn't like. I'd hate to think about how many calories we've eaten there! To be honest, we were concerned about a dog at the inn. We've stayed at other inns where the dog(s) was pretty obnoxious. This dog was not a problem at all. He keeps to himself but is approachable. You don't even notice him unless you need to step over him while he's sleeping. As for the town, it's so nice to walk the historic area. We also found using the bikes at the inn gave us a wider area to explore. We rode over the bridge to Anastasia Park and enjoyed the beach. We then came back and went for a dip in the inn's pool (I don't remember any other inns there having pools). I would recommend getting some popsicles from the Hyppo Popsicle store on Hypolita Ave (on the end closer to the waterfront). They're so fresh and delicious, especially on a hot day! If it's a nice evening, sit out on the porch at A1A Alehouse for dinner and watch the boats float by and the people enjoying the town. We haven't booked our trip for next year yet, but think we should probably look into it soon. We found the inn does sell out many times, so we want our choice of rooms.

I have stayed at the Kenwood Inn twice and enjoyed each visit. On our second visit we checked in on Christmas eve (2011). Pat welcomed us back like we were family visiting for the holiday. The inn is beautiful and we loved our room. The breakfast on Christmas day was wonderful. We are planning a couples getaway soon with friends and the Kenwood Inn is where we will stay. If you want a friendly and warm atmosphere, go visit Pat and her family, and enjoy your stay.

This will be the only place I stay when returning to St. Augustine. I felt like I was in the lap of luxury the enire time. Pat is such a wonderful, warm, inviting host. The inn is absolutely beautiful! The room decor was elegant and the bedding was superb. The gormet breadfasts were truly "gormet". I have stayed at over 30 B &B's and this one is now my favorite. Plus the location is the best. You never have to use your car. I have been to St. Augustine many, many times and every time I find something new to explore.

This was my second visit to the Kenwood Inn, my mother was married there in November (and they did an outstanding job!!!) and we returned to spend a weekend. Pat and her staff are wonderful! They make you feel like family, the rooms are gorgeous, the location is perfect for enjoying the sites and the food...delicious! I've stayed a numerous B&B's both in the US and abroad and the Kenwood has been my best experience by far. I would highly recommend it!!!!
4.8 on December 13, 2011
What a wonderful B&B and Brixton the dog is a bonus. This house is beautiful and Pat is a wonderful hostess. I have to add that the coffee is wonderful!!! It's close to everything so no need to drive to the shops. I highly recommend The Kenwood Inn. The rooms are gorgeous and I absolutely loved the bed - A+ to Pat and her staff Joanne

Enjoyed a wonderful weekend in St. Augustine at The Kenwood Inn. Pat and her staff were exceptional. So very gracious and made us feel so welcome and comfortable. Can't wait to go back again. Hopefully sooner rather than later!!

What a wonderful experience at the Kenwood Inn. The rooms were charming and our hostess Pat was beyond gracious. From breakfast on our china plates to the friendly chatter of "wine hour" this Inn is the treasure of St. Augustine. I would definitely put this on my "places to go back list." Thank you to Pat and our new extended family at the Kenwood.
4.2 on October 26, 2011
We only got to stay for 3 nights mid week but the place is so relaxing, breakfast is amazing loved the china and Pat is wonderful nothing was too much trouble and we really enjoyed sitting talking for wine hour.

The perfect B&B! Its like coming home! Pat and her family go out of their way to make your stay as excellent as possible. Breakfast was outstanding and so are the rooms en the home itself. Nicely located near the city center. Stay here!

My husband and I traveled to St. Augustine from Va. We've stayed in many, many B&Bs before around the states and in Europe. We have a sense a expectation as well as limitation but I have to tell you, The Kenwood Inn was an unexpected delight. Physically, it is very, very spacious, beautifully decorated, great public space including 2 livingrooms and 2 dining room, tropical courtyard with koi pond and very nice large swimming pool with suning lounges. Location couldn't be better. Walk to everything but removed from the city noice. Our guestroom, the Elizabeth Suite was well appointed, very comfortable, spacious bathroom with a shower/tub combo. We wander around the inn and saw several rooms larger and a few smaller than ours but all were very attractive. The owner Pat was the icing on the cake. You feel as if you knew her your entire life. Nothing is an inconveniece for her - she even went to Harry's and picked up the buzzer (I think that's what it's called) and brought it back to the inn so we didn't have to wait for our reservation. Breakfast WONDERFUL. I highly recommend this inn and can't wait to return.
5 on September 27, 2011
If you're looking for a B&B in St. Augustine, look no further...the Kenwood Inn is fabulous! Innkeeper Pat is so hospitable and accommodating...couldn't ask for a better host. Her homemade breakfasts, served indoors in elegant yet casual dining rooms or outdoors on the beautiful patio, are to die for! The inn's pool is a wonderful place to get out of the heat and relax before heading out to one of Pat's wonderful recommendations for dining nearby. Pat went out of her way to make us feel at home, tell us about St. Augustine and make sure we had a wonderful stay. We will definitely visit the Kenwood Inn again and will tell our friends and family about it enthusiatically! --Fans from Illinois

My husband and I reserved the Inn for a weekend in July to host our family and friends that were joining us for our ceremony which we had in the court yard of the Inn. Pat planned and arranged the entire wedding for us. She took care of everything from picking up our rehearsal dinner and going on beer and ice runs to fixing breakfast the morning after the wedding, Pat is truly amazing! The whole weekend was so wonderful and stress free, nothing less than perfect. Everyone raved about the wonderful time they had at the Inn. The Kenwood Inn will always have a special place in our hearts and we will never forget our perfect wedding weekend!
5 on August 22, 2011
I stayed at the Kenwood Inn during August 2011 along with my 1 1/2 year old daughter and husband. Our host Pat was so attentive to our needs. We felt like an extension of her family. This was our first stay in a B&B, so we didn't know what to expect. Fortunately for us, this experience surpassed our expectations. The inn was very quaint with a historic flair. The rooms were cozy, unique and very clean. There is a pool on the property which is very rare for B&B's. The breakfast service was prompt and the quality was equivalent to a 4 star restaurant. Pat was very helpful and answered any and all questions we had for her. I would definitely recommend the Kenwood Inn for your next stay in St. Augustine. We are already planning our return.

Pat made our family feel welcome from the moment she opened the door. The food was fantastic and the room well kept, very clean and a great place to relax for our family of four. Coming from the Netherlands and doing the New York to Miami tour our 3 night stay at the Kenwood Inn was a welcome intermezzo. No need for the car, everything within walking distance and very, very quiet. Sorry Pat for drinking all of your lemonade.

We live at the beach just north of St. Augustine, and consider St. Augustine to be a home away from home. We have never stayed in a B&B in the oldest city, so we decided to change it up, and we are so glad we did. Pat is wonderful, warm, welcoming, felt like we have always known her. The Inn was big and charming and old with lots of history. The setting was perfect, bikes were so fun to ride through the historic streets, the pool and courtyard were pretty, wine at 5 o'clock, sharing our visit with other guests, and a delicious breakfast beautifully served. What a great way to end the days of summer!

Our Visit was for 4 nights. Upon the Check-in, Pat was right there for anything that we needed. My husband and I have visited this Bed and Breakfast before, with the outstanding comfort of the bed and the most welcoming feeling we just completely enjoyed our get away. We had an anniversary that we will never forget. Pat will make all your arrangement personally. She had the romantic packages completely arranged for us.

The Kenwood Inn is an absolutely perfect choice for a B&B. I recently got married in St. Augustine, and The Kenwood Inn hosted our rehearsal dinner as well as provided accommodations for several family members and guests. The Inn is completely beautiful and charming, and the Innkeepers are extraordinarily helpful and thoughtful. Pat did an incredible job with the food all weekend, and looked for ways she could be extra helpful where the wedding details were concerned. I look forward to returning to the Kenwood for a more relaxing weekend so I can experience all that it has to offer. I would recommend it without hesitation.

My wife and I were "walk-ins," tired and with no idea what to expect. Pat treated us as if we were long lost friends from the minute we met her on the front porch. Our room, the Blue Porcelain Suite, was more than we could have hoped for and extremely enjoyable. We have stayed at B&B's for several years, many of which were considered "high end" but The Kenwood Inn is, by far, the most pleasant bed and breakfast experience we have ever found. We rate The Kenwood Inn "outstanding" in every category for the simple reason that it is. We're already planning our return visit. To paraphrase Oscar Wilde: We're easy to please. We're always satisfied with the best! Jan & Peggy Hadley

My husband and I were extremely happy with this Inn. Pat was very friendly and helpful. She even called ahead to see what the wait time was for a restaurant we were heading to. She went above and beyond what we expected. Breakfast was delicious too! The Inn is right next to all the attractions so the location was great. We stayed in the country Victorian room. The view from our balcony was fantastic. My husband loved the pillows, he couldn't stop talking about them. We were there on the 4th of July and the fireworks were fantastic! The best part was we didn't have to wait in traffic we just walked back to the Inn. We would have stayed another night if we didn't have other plans already. We will definately be back though.

The Kenwood is incredible. Really nicely decorated without being overly done. Beautiful rooms with a period style look, but fabulous modern amenities!! Following is a short excerpt from a letter we wrote to the owners. "Well, so hard to believe that the fabulous wedding weekend has come and gone. We are still digging through and putting back the "debris"! We definitely wanted to thank you and your fabulous Inn for taking such great care of our crazy wedding party and guests. To a person, everyone was so complimentary of their weekend experience at the Kenwood. The special Brunch on Sunday was absolutely extraordinary. The food was beautifully presented and tasted delicious! Thanks again...we will definitely be back to visit!"

In early June 2011, I stayed overnight at the Kenwood Inn with 5 of my work colleagues. Pat and Ted were fantastic hosts and welcomed us warmly and promptly checked each of us in our own lovely rooms. Pat provided a handy map of St. Augustine and quickly highlighted a walking route for us to follow to see sights and get dinner. All of her recommendations were perfect for our limited time. I stayed in Lavender's room that overlooked the pool and the courtyard. I couldn't have been more relaxed and wished I had more time to unwind at the Inn. The following morning, we got up early to hit the road and Pat and Ted had delicious hot coffee ready and waiting for us. We were seated to a luxurious breakfast of orange juice, berries and cream, cinnamon bundt cake, and a version of eggs benedict that was unforgettable! How Pat managed to fit that into our per diem was amazing and most appreciated. Her efforts over our short stay were impressive and I can't wait to return for a longer visit at this wonderful inn! Check it out for yourself!

Pat made my husband and I feel welcome from the time we checked in....til the time we left. She greeted me with a hug & I felt like I had known her a long time. We had the charming adjoining "Green Room", with 2 separate bedrooms & 2 separate bathrooms. Pat was very accommodating with my special needs of sleeping in a recliner chair.....due to back surgeries. Worked perfectly for my husband and my needs. Pat also recommended nice restaurants and cafes that she thought my husband and I would enjoy. We had two very nice breakfasts that Pat had prepared for her guests.... the two days we were there. We met nice couples from all over the world....staying there. A very nice experience, nice atmosphere....with the nicest people you ever met. I would highly recommend Kenwood Inn B & B, and meeting your gracious hosts, Pat and Ted. A great experience and beautiful old home. Barb & Paul 5/27/11

The Kenwood Inn is everything you look for in a B&B. It's an 1865 inn converted in the 70's to a B&B. It's located right in the historic district, a block from the water and walking distance to everything you want to see in St. Augustine. Pat and Ted, the innkeepers, are lovely and warm people. Pat provides every amenity possible -- from tickets to dinner reservations (where you'd likely have trouble making them yourself) to recommendations of the best things to see in the area. She's a wonderful cook and the breakfasts are elegant. Our room was large and beautifully appointed and surprisingly quiet at night. The pool is a plus after a warm day of sightseeing. Pam and Michael Druhan

This is a delightful bed and breakfast. We stayed in one of the two-bedroom, two-bath suites. Since our mother was with us and she couldn't really stay by herself, it suited our needs perfectly. Ted and Pat are wonderful hosts and were most gracious in meeting our needs. We will definitely stay here again.
5 on April 27, 2011
Thank you!!!! my family and i stay in this beautiful house and this special lady "pat" makes our stay even more enjoyable she makes every effort to make us feel at home and in vacation, everything for us to relax and enjoy and make our trip memorable , i will definitely come back soon!!!

We stayed in the Porcelin room with our daughter who is 10. The room is tastefully decorated and king bed was very comfortable. Even the cot that was provided for our daughter was nice to sleep on. The Inn itself is wonderfully decorated with a combination of antique and contempory furntiure. The breakfast room(s) are spacious and bright. The breakfast itself was amazing. Pat is a wonderful cook and host. The best part of our stay here was meeting and visiting with other guests during breakfast. There was also wine available from 5 - 6 pm which included some freshly baked treats by Pat. The location was perfect. Easy walking distance to downtown restaurants and old town sites. I would stay at the Kenwood again without hesitation. Ps. It would be nice is if their pool was heated.

We were so excited to be staying at the Kenwood again after a 3 year absence, it was better than ever, Pat and Ted are wonderful host, they cannot do enough for their guest. The Kenwood has everything, great hosts, location, beautiful gardens, pool, you name it they have it.
5 on March 29, 2011
The Kenwood Inn was the best B&B I have stayed in. Pat goes above and beyond pleasing her guests. The location is excellent. Only needed my car for the beach. Pat, we already miss those fabulous breakfasts every morning and of course our wine in the afternoons! Will be back for sure, Sue and The Jersey Girls

I loved Pat and her family. They made us feel at home. The food was fantastic. The rooms were very clean. I will tell alot of people of my stay there Barbara Ann KLug
5 on March 02, 2011
Pat, the owner, is a wonderful hostess. She was very welcoming from the moment we got out of our cars. The Inn itself is fabulous! You probably wouldn't think it is just by looking at the outside. The decor, the dining area and rooms are all amazing. The Inn is just minutes away from everything. Perfect location!!! My husband and I are planning our next trip back to St. Augustine just so that we can stay at Kenwood again. I've already recommended this bed and breakfast to my friends and family. Just know that you won't be disappointed if you stay there.
5 on February 15, 2011
Pat the innkeeper is amazing, so friendly and accomodating. We were assisted with dinner reservations, a carriage ride, and places to go/things to see. The Old English suite was fantastic, the fireplace, patio, comfy bed, and deluxe whirlpool tub in the bathroom. We cannot wait to go back! D & J Andrews

We surprised out kids over Thanksgiving break with staying at a B&B it was the 1st time for all of us staying in a B&B. I called around to about 50 hotels and 25 B&B's they wanted us to pay for an extra room due to having 5 in my family. My last call was to The Kenwood Inn and let me tell you I hit the jackpot. Pat said she would put all 5 of us in a room with a roll away bed. I have 3 children and wanted them all to be in the same room as us. We had 2 rooms connected with 2 bathrooms and it was beautiful and very comfy beds. Ted was only home when we arrived so we got checked in our rooms left came back to the Inn about 9:00 p.m and as my children and husband rounded the corner Pat yelled our last name gave us all hugs and acted like we were her family. She then chatted with us and asked if the kids liked her special on Wed. for breakfast I told her they would not eat a poached egg she said no problem and fixed them potatoes, scrambled eggs and grits..she was so sweet with doing that for them. All I can say is we will be back again real soon....

Our trip to historic St. Augustine was greatly enhanced by our stay at the Kenwood Inn. The inn's history and location made it an ideal place to stay and explore St. Augustine. The inn as well as the city was still decorated for Christmas which made our stay even more special. Pat made us feel at home, answered all our questions and served fantastic breakfasts. She and her husband were the perfect hosts. Our trip was made on the spur of the moment and we knew nothing about The Kenwood Inn but I am glad we stayed there and are planning to do it again next year.
4.8 on January 17, 2011
Pat and Ted really set the bar high! This was an amazing experience. The room was delightful, breakfast was great and Pat was the most excellent host. I really felt like I was at home. The Catlin room was perfect for our family of 4. Cozy sofas and sitting areas through out the inn. Met some really nice people and had great conversations. Wine at five was nice...and the kitty was soo cute.....Most of all it was relaxing....Great weekend getaway..Thank you Pat and Ted.... we will be back for sure!!!!
5 on January 17, 2011
My boyfriend and I arrived at the Kenwood Inn already reading past reviews and really hoping that the great reviews were right, and they were! From the moment you walk in the Inn makes you feel welcomed and Pat is a major reasong for that! The rooms are beautiful, comfortable beds, cleans, soft towels, and super clean. Breakfast in the morning was exceptional! Pat knows so much about St. Augustine and her reccomendations for dinner and sights to see are right on point! It is a perfect location a few blocks away from everything but still far enough that it is quiet to get a restful sleep at night. Met a couple great people during breakfast and the wine social at night. We just left today wishing we could stay longer and already planning our next trip in two months! Thank you Pat, for a beautiful experience.
4.4 on January 17, 2011
We were met with such friendliness and joy which continued throughout our stay. Pat was like my long lost sister. The home was wonderful and the breakfasts nutritious , delicious and beautiful. The rooms were a delight to behold and the beds so comfy we hardly wanted to leave them. Any questions we posed were answered completely and suggestions made to enhance our visit to St. Augustine. I highly recommend this Inn.
4.8 on December 23, 2010
The breakfasts were outstanding! Pat, the owner, was very sweet, informative on St Augustine history and a great help with our dining choices. The house was decorated for Christmas, and was beautiful.
4.8 on December 18, 2010
From the moment we arrived, Pat went out of her way to welcome us into her home. It is clear that this inn is a labor of love for her and Ted. Not only are the rooms gorgeous and well-appointed, but Pat took the time to make us feel at home while telling us about the absolute best St. Augustine has to offer - and all of her suggestions were spot on! The Romance Package was such a lovely luxury - Pat makes the most delectable chocolate-covered strawberries and arranged a horse and buggy to pick us up from the inn and drop us at our restaurant. On the last day, she arranged the BEST massage I've ever had - a perfect way to end a vacation walking the streets of the city. The inn is located at a wonderful spot - just a short walk away from all the main spots. Finally, the nightly cocktail hour was a great way to start the evening - Ted and Pat are both such gracious hosts!
4.2 on December 18, 2010
We were greeted with warmth and immediately felt like we were at home. Pat is amazing, she was juggling the holiday open house at the inn and checking us in at the same time. She makes us feel so welcome. We became fast friends with her and can't wait to go back! She gave us great advice about seeing St. Augustine and even printed our boarding passes when all too quickly it was time to checkout. Talking with other guests, we found many have stayed at the Kenwood before. Even a young couple were welcomed at the door with hugs from Pat; they took a train all the way from Miami just to stay a weekend at the Inn. Breakfast included assorted baked goods, fresh and cut fruit and a hot item each day. The Inn was beautifully decorated for Christmas with trees in each public room all with a different color scheme and ornaments. The 5 o'clock wine social was lovely and many guests relaxed together with Pat and Ted and chatted. Pat discussed the many improvements they've made and plans for future upgrades. We were in the Country Suite and the bed was very comfy, room very clean, and the bathroom good sized with a large walk-in shower. The Inn is very charming and within walking distance of everything to see and do in this beautiful city. In other words, don't hesitate, you'll love the Kenwood! We're already planning a trip in late spring.
4.6 on November 17, 2010
My husband and I recently spent a night at the well-appointed Kenwood Inn in St. Augustine. The innkeeper and staff could not have been more accomodating; the public rooms were most attractive and our bedroom was sunlit and soothing, with one of the most comfortable king-sized beds we've ever had away from home. Breakfast with other guests on Sunday was healthy, beautifully presented, and delicious. Of course the environs of the old city were picturesque in the extreme, and at night the clip-clop of horses hooves lulled us to sleep.
5 on November 17, 2010
We recently stayed at the Kenwood Inn in St. Augustine. We've stayed at a few others in St Augustine and other cities. I have to tell you - it was the best experience we've ever had. The inn has a wonderful location - it's right near everything but what's amazing is the neighborhood is very quiet. We slept so soundly. Our room was wonderful and it had a great view of the bay. Our room also had a very nice porch and even a hammock- which was lovely especially with a glass of wine from the inn's wine social. Breakfasts were great, delicious and very, very filling. Did I mention the owners - Pat and Ted. The welcome we received felt as if we were coming home for the holidays but better because they weren't relatives. Pat couldn't have been more accommodating - she even drove me to the drug store when I need my medicine. I can't say enough about my stay. I highly recommend the Kenwood and can't wait to go back. Meghan with warm greetings from New York

We took a chance and hit the jackpot!! The inn is beautiful and the location is perfect, but the best thing about the Kenwood Inn is the owner. Pat Dobosz is one of the friendliest and most gracious persons I have ever met. From the minute you set foot on the property she makes you feel like family. Her hospitality goes above and beyond and makes your stay at the inn so special. We have been to St. Augustine many times but this was our first stay at the Kenwood Inn, now I can't imagine staying anywhere else. I'm already planning a return trip. I want ALL my friends to have the "Dobosz Experience."
4.6 on November 13, 2010
Very comfortable beds and plenty of room in the bedroom suite. Breakfast, coffee was quite enjoyable and tasty. the wine in the evenings was relaxing in their spacious parlour areas. The owners were welcoming and the hospitality made you feel at home.
5 on November 12, 2010
My husband and I stayed at the Kenwood Inn in October. It was my first visit to St. Augustine, and this inn was the perfect choice for our stay. Nestled in a quiet little street with other houses of the same period, it was a convenient 5-minute walk to restaurants and downtown shopping. The charming Victorian house is beautifully maintained, and the furnishings are exquisite. The living area exudes taste and an inviting warmth; the bedrooms are individually decorated and outfitted in lovely linens and window treatments. We loved the beautiful china and other details of the table settings, and the food was delicious. Hosts Pat and Ted Dobosz were gracious and patient with our lively young grandchildren. We would definitely stay at The Kenwood Inn again.
5 on November 09, 2010
From the extra help we received before we arrived to the greeting we received we could not have felt more welcome. Pat went over and above her duties as hostess and helped us with some extra accommodations and planning while seeing to our comfort. And comfort there was a plenty. From the warm inviting colors to the down mattress topper, to the Jacuzzi tub. Not to mention the gorgeous porch where we sat and watched it rain. Thank you Pat. If we are back to St Augustine we will be staying here. Your tricker treaters on scooters.
5 on October 07, 2010
I come to the Kenwood Inn twice a year and wish it could be more. I not only love the location of the Inn but Pat and Ted the owners have become like family members. They really know how to take care of you and everything you can wish for is taken care of. Pat is about the best cook I have ever met! I love everything about this home away from home and can not say enough! The remodeling is also so tasteful, all about comfort and with an eye to total care! Sincerely, Debbi Becker. Hollywood Florida

Thank you Pat and Ted for such a wonderful stay at your beautiful bed and breakfast. You both are so welcoming and by the time we left you felt like family. Beautiful touches all over the Inn. This was such a treat!! We loved the way you both made breakfast special every morning with great food and outstanding service!! We really felt like a king and queen!! St. Augustine is so beautiful and a perfect vacation spot. We are telling all our friends about our new discovery. We feel so blessed to have had this wonderful vacation and thank you for making it so special for us. We look forward to a time when we can come back. God Bless you both!! Sincerely, M&M in Michigan

My wife had never been to a B & B. I, on the other hand, have been to several. I have been to a B&B in Vancouver, Canada and several in the Napa Valley. I consider these to be at the top of their game and they simply encompass everything a B&B is and should be. While in St. Augustine I had the opportunity to see many of the B&Bs there. While they were all beautiful, none seemed to display the charm and intimacy that the Kenwood Inn seems to have. I wanted my wife to have a genuine experience, and it was exactly that! My wife loved it, made some new friends, and found some new experiences to aspire to. I love it, made new friends, and saw the value of having a wonderful relationship with your spouse. What more can you ask of an experience that I have only found at the Kenwood Inn?? The proprietors are wonderful, charming, and always there for your needs. The Staff is just as welcoming..and consequently, the clientele that they attract is equally inviting.
4.0 on August 23, 2010
This was our first experience of american bed and breakfast, we usually use Marriott hotels but thought we would try B&B. Pat and Ted could not have done more for us during our stay. Would recommend without hesitation, the pool was a great addition, and I'm sure that when the renovations have been completed their will be even more choice of rooms.
5 on August 18, 2010
Our first stay in a B & B in St. Augustine could not have been better! We LOVED the Kenwood Inn....charming and gorgeous with unique personality in each of the numerous bedrooms and suites. Bear in mind that the inn features the best of historical feel with modern conveniences. We loved that we could park our car out front of the inn and then were able to walk everywhere in town without taking the car....the location is quiet and not where you can hear the restaurants or the bars....but close enough to get to them within minutes. The breakfasts were too wonderful....we gained a pound or two....and the wine with other guests each evening was fun. We made some new friends with the other guests. The most wonderful of all though was the friendship we now have with Pat and Ted Dobosz...It was in a word fabulous! -- Jane & David, Lake Worth, FL
4.6 on August 17, 2010
This was our first stay at a B&B. It's true what they say, "Once you stay at a B&B, standard hotels pale in comparison". Pat & Ted were WONDERFUL hosts, and Pat is a fabulous cook. I'm going to ask her for her "Banana & Nut French Toast" recipe. When we got to our hotel in Orlando days later, we really missed the familial atmosphere & 5:00 wine tasting. PS - our teenage daughters loved it too.
5 on August 12, 2010
My husband and I and our teenage son stayed at the Kenwood Inn. It was lovey the inn keepers Pat and Ted made you feel very welcome the rooms (we had two) were beautifully decorated with very modern bathrooms that surprised us. Pat is very knowledgeable and quite the historian. We were within walking distance to everything. Pat's breakfasts were not only esthetically pleasing but delicious as well. We sat by the swimming pool with cool drinks in the shade after exploring St Augustine. Not only would I highly recommend staying here but I am trying to figure out when I can return. Maybe for a girls weekend stay it would be perfect. So grab your husband, family or girlfriends and go to this wonderful home; it was heaven. Hope to see you again soon!

The food, the ambience, the people...all wonderful. You could not ask for more gracious innkeepers. We were treated like royalty. Thank you for making our vacation perfect. We can't wait to return. Rene Barrett

My husband and I were VERY pleased with our stay at The Kenwood Inn. We were meet by Pat and Ted who where extremely friendly and helpful. They greeted us, took care of our bags and gave us excellent directions to our destination that day. We swam in their pool by starlight, ate our breakfast with other house guest by sunlight and gazed upon a beautiful moon before snuggling in our comfy bed. We definitely plan to go back and to tell our friends about our very relaxing, homeeee experience. And it's right in the heart of St. Augustine - within walking distance of everything!! Thanks Pat and Ted - we needed that!!! cfv

We were thrilled when we arrived by boat via the river to find out how inviting and attractive the Inn appeared. We loved the quiet yet close proximity to the At. Augustine downtown, sites and restaurants. However, after a wonderful night on the town, upon falling peacefully into bed, I awoke with a terrible stomach virus. It was apparent the next morning that i could not survive a 2 hour boat ride back to the dock and an additional hour and a half drive home. Pat volunteered to drive me to Orlando! I will never forget this kindness nor how wonderful our stay was up until I became ill, nor will I consider staying elsewhere. The house was beautiful and from what our friends and my husband later told me, the breakfast was delicious. Everyone was friendly, welcoming and gracious. Our second story balcony was next to our friends' room and we were able to enjoy the rocking chairs while sipping wine and watching the quiet passerbys. The whole atmosphere reminded me of the quiet areas of Charleston!
4.6 on July 26, 2010
One of the best times ever! We loved St. Augustine but especially loved Pat and Ted and staying at Kenwood. We can't wait for a return visit.

First of all, this is our 2nd stay at the Inn and it still is an amazing place! We stayed on the 3rd floor this time in the Bayview Suite or Bridal Suite. Upon going to bed at around 0115 my wife was immediately disturbed by a feeling that she knew something was in the room with us. She described it as a heavy feeling and she wanted to leave immediately. She then began to cry and felt even more oppressed by what was in the room. I got up to check things out and when I went to my suitcase, I immediately felt freezing cold and felt like there was something on my back. When I turned to tell my wife to get up and lets go, she said that my face was unrecognizable. She got up and we left with me being the last one out of the room. Immediately upon shutting the staircase door to our room when we reached the 2nd floor, we could breathe and felt relief. We left by 0145! When we called the next day to explain, the Innkeeper said that at 0300-0330, 2 different people had heard loud pounding sounds on the floor above them and things being dragged across the floor... That time was AFTER we had left and were already back at home in bed!!! This place is an unbelievable nice place and the owners are great, but something is definately paranormal on the 3rd floor!!!

As I planned a little get away to old Saint Augustine for my wifes birthday, It was by chance that I found the Kenwood Inn as most might have on the internet. The best I can say,simply put, an excelent experience. It's a great old building full of warmth,charm and an interesting past that we just loved. Pat and Ted couldn't have been better hosts, they truly made us feel at home. Thanks for the wonderfull weekend.. For sure we will return..
5 on July 22, 2010
For the past 25 years, my husband and I have taken many quick trips to St. Augustine and have stayed at many inns, but our favorite is the Kenwood Inn. We feel welcomed like family, and the accommodations are always the best.
5 on July 21, 2010
Pat and Ted made you feel like family as soon as you stepped into the inn. The rooms were superb, clean and a home away from home. We had a outstanding experience staying at this B and B. We highly recommend The Kenwood Inn.

We had never stayed at a B and B before but will come back again. Our hosts were so wonderful and the rooms were very comfortable.

In planning for my sister's wedding, we wanted to find a place that would hold our entire family comfortably and was close to town so people could walk everywhere. After meeting the Inn owners Pat and Ted, we knew our special weekend was going to be at the Kenwood. The home is a true TREASURE with a perfect blend of period architecture and modern amenities. The location is pristine with views of the water from the top floor and an easy walk to town. You are greeted by dual floor wrap around porches that offer hammocks and comfortable lounge furniture to relax in. The downstairs has multiple options for seating and also has a baby grand piano in the parlor area. Pat gave us a tour of all the rooms and they are all exquisite boasting rich colors and classic detailings like crystal wall sconces. There is even a fantastic penthouse perfect for a larger group. The outside area was perfect for our bbq with beautiful cobblestone detailings and stonewalls that surrounded a peaceful koi pond. A highly competitive game of pool volleyball maintained throughout the weekend. The pool held an extremely comfortable temperature and is surrounded by large trees allowing for nice privacy. On the night of the wedding Pat was kind enough to call a pizza place and ask them to stay open for us. The hospitality, personal touches, care and compassion from Pat and Ted far exceeded my expectations. As a result of our amazing time we are already planning our reunion trip next year. If you are travelling to St. Augustine, stay at the Kenwood, you will not be disappointed.
5 on June 26, 2010
Really enjoyed our 3 night stay with Pat and Ted. Our recently updated room was quite large even with a king size bed. Had a large tub and shower, only bad thing was it took forever for the hot water to come from the shower head and felt we were wasting water. Pat did a wonderful job with the breakfast goodies and Ted made sure the coffee pot was full. We really felt like "family" as they went out of their way to please us. The location was great as we walked most everywhere so once we parked the car, it never moved until our trip home. A really nice feature is the pool-very refreshing. Especially enjoyable was interacting with the other guests, either at breakfast or afternoon wine and exchanging experiences for that day. Will we be back? You bet!!!!
5 on June 26, 2010
The owner, Pat, was most helpful in making our weekend stay very delightful. She most graciously helped me make this a most memorial surprise wedding anniversary by coordinating long-stem roses in our room and arranging a horse carriage ride to a very romantic restaurant, and to my surprise, a small wedding cake in our room after returning from dinner at the Collage restaurant. The Kenwood Inn, located in the heart of the old city, was the first bed and breakfast in St. Augustine. Today is has been beautifully restored into a most comfortable, enjoyable setting. Its rooms and suites are decorated in several elegantly different motifs to fulfill everyone’s expectations. Our suite was a beautiful French country setting. Breakfast at the inn is beyond comment. The quality and presentation out-shines most five-star restaurants. Everything is from scratch, no store-bought mixes or pre-made ingredients. The variety will satisfy even the most finicky appetite. Coffee, tea, lemonade are available all day and the buffet in the sitting room always had a cake or pastry and specially-made fruit flavored ice cold water, delicious. The room and the food are only topped by Pat’s desire to help everyone get the most out of their stay in St. Augustine. She is always available to help recommend, get information on, and arrange tours and restaurant reservations. The only thing more enjoyable about a weekend in St. Augustine is a weekend in St. Augustine at the Kenwood Inn.

My wife and I have stayed at the Kenwood Inn on numerous occasions and always return to the Kenwood. The owners, Pat and Ted treat you like family. The Inn is located in a quiet, peaceful end of town, away from the hustle but still within walking distance of everything in town. The rooms are all beautiful and unique. The cleanliness and attention to detail cannot be matched. It is our favorite Inn in St. Augustine.

I recently stayed at the Kenwood for a wedding and it was like walking into the home of family and friends. The inn keeper Pat is fantastic and so incredibly welcoming and helpful. She has St Augustine at her finger tips! Can't wait to go back! Keep up the wondeful hospitatlity!

Not many people think to stay in a B&B on a business trip. However, Pat made me feel perfectly welcome during my stay and was very flexible with my early early breakfast hour. Not only did they make my business stay memorable, I will certainly call on them again when I go back for a vacation!

The Kenwood Inn was an Inn we had stayed at many years in the past. We found it under new owners who aim to please. They are friendly and pleasant. The Inn was clean and well apointed . Stocked with sherry a guest pantry stocke dwith refreshments. The Kenwood is being updated in a most modern yet traditional way, making it even more beautiful than it already is. They are doing it one room at a time so you don't even knowiit is going on. We love staying in bed and breakfast inns and we defintely recommend this one. It is quiet yet convinient with the old city all around you. It has a pool and different size rooms. Stay there ....you won't be disappointed!

What a great stay in a very charming inn with, incidentally, the coolest owners ever! We truly had a blast and the experience was much like that of going home and feeling ever so comfortable in a family home (minus the usual family bickering of coarse). Pat is a very gracious host who was willing to go the extra mile! Can't wait to go back!

3 friends came for the weekend and stayed in Caitlyns room, wow! They are remodeling the rooms and this was 2 rooms, 2 baths, whirlpool tub, little patio out the side, beautiful! Poolside each afternoon, home cooked breakfast that was delicious, so close to down town , and peaceful serenity. We all will come back, can't wait!

The Kenwood Inn was wonderful. The room, the service, the location and the innkeepers, Pat and Ted could not have been better. The inn is located in a wonderful corner within walking distance of it all, yet not in the middle of the sightseeing crowd. The inn sits on a street corner at the end of Marine St., quietly beckoning you to look at its understated and quaint elegance. We really felt at home there and will definitely return. There are many beds and breakfasts in St. Augustine but the Kenwood Inn stands in a category by itself. If you want to experience the old charm of a beautiful home and the warmth of people who will make you feel your stay is as special to them as it is to you, then look no where else.

We spent four great days in St. Augustine at the Kenwood Inn. It's charming and elegant, and Pat and Ted make you feel like you're part of the family. Centrally located, easy to walk to everything interesting. Restaurants and nightlife are within blocks. Parking is offsite but convenient, especially in a city where parking is hard to come by. If you want fabulous breakfasts (the baked goods are the best I've ever had) you'll love this place.

If you are seeking a very special and very beautiful bed and breakfast in St. Augustine - look no further! This magical oaisis is walking distance to everything. The inkeepers are warm and welcoming, the service is devine (as are the yummy breakfasts) and the rooms are comfortable (great beds) and well appointed. Best of all, there's the hospitality. Pat and Ted will treat you like life-long friends (which you will be once you've experienced a stay here).

My best friend and I stayed at the Kenwood Inn for a "Girls Getaway Weekend". We enjoyed the sights and sounds of St. Augustine, and Pat and Ted made us feel so comfortable in their home. It was wonderful to sit with the innkeepers to learn about the city, inn, them ... whatever we wanted to talk about. We could be social or private at anytime throughout our stay. The room was comfortable and the special touches were welcomed with smiles. I have to be honest, the cookies didn't hurt either. We have already recommended this inn to other friends.
4.4 on April 22, 2010
We had a wonderful time. Pat and Ted are gracious hosts. Our teenage daughter and 6 year old both enjoyed the Kenwood. Breakfasts were wonderful. We will certainly stay there again.

The Kenwood Inn, a charming and historical B&B in beautiful St. Augustine, Fl. was the setting for our Easter weekend stay. Our hostess, Pat, provided information and sound recommendations for what to see and where to eat. She even made reservations at the restaurants for us! Our Easter breakfast included a traditional baked ham, eggs Benedict, coffee cakes, fresh fruit and egg strata all topped off with fresh coffee and champagne mimosas. Each afternoon, her husband, Ted, hosted a hospitality hour serving wine and other special treats. Our room was delightful and the inn has the charm of "old Florida." We look forward to a return visit!

My fiance and I had an amazing time at the Kenwood Inn. Our room was beautiful and we had a great time in the pool. The breakfast was delicious and the cocktail hour was so much fun! The location is perfect, we walked to all the historic sites, restaurants, and bars, but it wasn't as noisy as some of the other B&Bs. We loved walking along the bay and can't wait to go back.

Upon our arrival, a little late and very tired, we were greeted by Pat and Ted, our very gracious hosts. They immediately got us settled into our wonderful room. Within moments,, they had wine and appetizers for us, very much needed after our long trip. Our first night could not have been better. The jacuzzi tub relieved alot of stress and the awesome bed made it very hard to leave. We walked to a wonderful restaurant for dinner, and then on to a quaint pub for some great live music, both places, Pat's suggestion. What a great first night. Breakfast the following morning was superb. Ted is a wonderful chef. It was difficult to decide whether to eat in the dining room, the sun room, the garden, the pool or many of the wonderful porches. Thankfully we were going to be there more than one night. There are so many things to do in St. Augustine. We decided to tour the historic district by trolley, then did some great shopping in the many art galleries. We had a great lunch with a view of the water and then back to The Inn for nap then more hors d'ouvers and wine. The other guests were such a pleasure to meet. Another great dinner and more entertainment. We took a pirate boat cruise the next day and more touring. What a wonderful trip. Out last day was spent relaxing by the great pool. It was nice to enjoy the company of the other guests as well. Pat and Ted could not have been more accomodating and gracious. There knowledge of the area truly helped make our stay more enjoyable. Thank you so much for a wonderful mini vacation. We will definately return many times.

My husband and I have stayed in bed and breakfast's over the years but our experience at the Kenwood Inn was the best by far. Our hosts Ted and Pat went over and above anything we could have expected to make our stay memorable. The breakfasts were delicious and our accommodations were wonderful. The inn is located on a quiet street in the nicest part of the town. Pat had great suggestions on what not to miss and was familiar with all the restaurants in the area. We have decided that we will go back to St. Augustine's and will definitely stay at the Kenwood Inn.

I was quite disappointed with my stay at The Kenwood Inn. If you have children and want to stay at a B&B then this is the place for you. If you do not want to be around screaming, unruling children; then this is NOT the place for you! I had reserved a specific room and the innkeeper "upgraded" me to be across the hall of a couple with a 4 month old baby, a 2 year old, and a 5 year old. I was rudely awaken in the middle of the night with a baby screaming and crying. Then rewoken up by 3 screaming children. We were woken up both morning to screaming children. I thought by staying at a B&B which has a children policy; I would not be disturbed by screaming, unruling children. And for those of you who think I am anti-children; my niece was also a guest here and she is well mannered!

What a wonderful place, beautifully decorated and inviting. Pat and Ted are wonderful people, they could not have made us feel more at home. Pat's breakfasts which included homemade coffee cakes, bread pudding, fresh fruit and Eggs Benedict to name a few were fantastic. Although they are still renovating some of the rooms, you would not have known it, except for the lumber stacked in the courtyard. The inn was clean and quiet. The location of the inn is the greatest. Within walking distance of everything, or if you prefer a ride on the bicycles provided by the inn for guest use. Pat and Ted definately helped make my birthday weekend in St. Augustine one I will not forget.

Our Stay with Pat and Ted at the Kenwood Inn was like visiting Family, We could not have felt more welcomed. The Breakfast was something to look forward to every morning. and the afternoon social hour( wine tasting) was a big hit with most everyone. The rooms were very comfortable. And all our needs were met. Pat and Ted were excellent hosts. Being located in the main part of town was just a short walk to most anything you wanted and walking along the harbor (ICWW) in the evening was so relaxing. If you want a wonderful homey place to stay the Kennwood Inn is your place.................

A friend and I just concluded a second visit to the Kenwood Inn. Absolutely delightful both times. Pat and her staff are friendly, the Inn is comfortable and filled with gorgeous decor....and the food is yummy! The Inn is very near the bay area and downtown St. Augustine. For us, it was the perfect fit for what we prize: historic property in historic district; close to attractions, restaurants and amenities, but far enough away to be quiet and relaxing; personable proprietors that we now call "friends." Highly recommended!!

We stay at Bed and Breakfasts when we can, this happened to be our 5 year anniversary . We only live about 1 1/2 from Saint Augustine , we have driven there many times to have dinner , and walk around But this time we wanted to play tourist . Thank You Kennwood Inn for making our stay very enjoyable . We felt like family.

We arrived in St Augustine without reservations and walked to many of the inns before we selected the Kenwood. There was no comparision. We were so warmly greeted and instantly fell in love with the layout and spacious guest areas particulary the main living room, walled courtyard and guest pantry. We loved every minute of our stay. The wine service in the living room was just a perfect way to meet the other guests. Breakfasts were exceptional. Coffee service at 7a and not having to exit the building outside to walk to the main dining area was the best. Our room was exceptionally clean, wonderfully decorated and cozy. We couldn't have been happier and ended up staying 2 extra nights. The hosts - Pat and Ted are great, great people - alwasy anxious to make sure your stay was the best. We highly recommend the Kenwood Inn B&B

This was my first time staying at a bed and breakfast. From the moment Ted greeted us at the door, I felt at home. Pat and Ted goes out of their way to make your stay enjoyable. The Kenwood inn is differently home away from home. I was so comfortable that I overslept. Breakfast was delicious. The inn is beautifully decorated, the back yard is peaceful and cozy. A MUST stay when in St Augustine. Thank you Ted and Pat for making my stay enjoyable and memorable.

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary. Pat and Ted made our visit more romantic by helping us plan our dinner and carriage and buggie ride. The inn is right by the bay and we went on a boat ride. Pat cooked an awesome breakfast!
5 on May 11, 2009
The inn is half a block from the bay. We went fishing all day. came 'home' to the inn to relax and chat with the owners over a glass of wine. Good times!
5 on May 08, 2009
As soon as I walked in, the owners, Pat and Ted, made me feel right at home. My room was beautifully decorated and had a patio with rocking chairs and hammocks. Social hour was so relaxing on the courtyard getting to know the other travelers and listening to the classical music. Food was great!

My young son and I stayed in the Colonial Room. It is a beautiful room, just off of the living room. We had a wonderful time in the pool and gardens. Breakfast was cozy. The innkeeper was very sweet and helpful. This inn is within walking distance of the Spanish quarter, restaurants (Columbia is highly recommended), shops, museums, everything! A delightful stay!

This was the first time we have stayed at a Bed and Breakfast and it won't be the last. The innkeepers were very nice, the continental breakfast fresh and delicious, and the rooms very comfortable. The street was being worked on during our visit so we had to park at the Oldest House parking lot, but it was only a block away and once we were parked we walked everywhere. The location was great at the south end of the historic district so it was quiet at night and everything was easily accesible. The pool looked refreshing and clean.

Mark, and Karrianne were wonderful. Breakfast was superb. The rooms were cozy, and extremely clean. The pool was refreshing after exploring St.Augustine. This inn get's an Aplus.
