For over a century this lovely Victorian Inn has received visitors to St. Augustine. Local maps and early records show that the inn was built between 1865 and 1885 and was advertised as a private guest house as early as 1886. By 1911 the property was known as the Kenwood Hotel. The inn has maintained the charm and character of 100 years of tradition while now providing a casual elegant style to enjoy. Located within the Historic District between the Oldest House and the famous Castillo de San Marcos, The Kenwood Inn is within walking distance of many fine restaurants and all historic sites. It is one block from the Intracoastal Waterway with its passing fishing trawlers, yachts at anchor and the classic Bridge of Lions. Across the bridge by car or bicycle are miles of beautiful ocean beaches. The Inn's spacious accommodations include rooms with double, queen and king sized pillow-topped beds. Many rooms also include pullout queen size sofas. The Inn has central heat and air, and all rooms have private baths. Bicycles are available to tour the city. The walled-in courtyard is the perfect place to sit and relax after a long day of exploring the old city. The swimming pool is adjacent to the courtyard through the gate and is very refreshing on those hot and humid summer days.

Our first visit to St. Augustine

4.4 on August 27, 2014

This was our first experience at a B&B and we loved it! The room was very nice with a huge shower. The king bed was comfortable. Our breakfast experience was very nice with multiple choices for all. The salt water pool was nice and bikes were available to use. We were close to all sightseeing opportunities, but located in a quiet spot of the historical area. We would stay there again!

One of the Best Experiences of My Life

5 on August 22, 2014

The Kenwood Inn is fantastic! My cousin and I stayed to celebrate my graduation and it was my first vacation in 8 years. Pat was a wonderful, caring, and attentive host, her employees polite and helpful, the rooms clean, beautiful, and relaxing, and the food was scrumptious. The pantry was a great touch to get something to drink any time you needed it and the pool was refreshing. The surroundings are breathtaking and the Inn is tucked just behind all of the hustle and bustle in its own little world. Just a very short walk to everything and close to the panoramic view of the bay. All in all, it was one of the best experiences of our lives. We will definitely be back. Keep our rooms waiting, Pat ! ! !

Wonderful Stay

It was my husband's 50th birthday and Pat the Inn Keeper helped me keep the surprises going! She and her staff went above and beyond their call of duty to make his birthday weekend special. Thank you Pat!!

Comfortable stay in historic city

4.8 on August 12, 2014

The Kenwood Inn is like home away from home. The room was quite comfortable, refreshments were offered through the day and the staff is friendly and helpful. It was wonderful to park the car and walk into St. Augustine and see all that it has to offer.

One of My Best B&B Experiences Ever!

5 on August 07, 2014

The Kenwood Inn is definitely a Bed & Breakfast we'll visit again. Pat, the innkeeper, was a fantastic host - warm, inviting, helpful and attentive. She offered advice, made calls for us to enquire if any restaurants had fresh oysters, and facilitated a wonderful staff. The inn itself was beautifully kept, comfortable and held a relaxing atmosphere. I look forward to my next visit at the Kenwood Inn.

Wonderful location in the heart of historic St. Augustine

5 on August 06, 2014

We came to the Kenwood after using The property exceeded our expectations and we will be repeat customers. The coffee was better than Starbucks and eating out in the courtyard was idyllic. The breakfasts were presented well and were very tasty. Thank you, Pat!

perfect stay for our anniversary

5 on July 30, 2014

We booked as a romantic getaway for our ten year anniversary, and our first trip away from the kids. Everything about the room and the inn was perfect, excellent service and the breakfast is amazing. It was easy to come and go as we pleased, but staff was always available when we needed them. The room was absolutely gorgeous, as well. It's a little off the main drag, but because of that it is very peaceful and quiet, especially at night. Would definitely stay there again.
