Wonder stay at a wonderful gem. Mansion has been lovingly restored. Food is unbelievable. If you are looking for that something special place, look no further. Lots to do. Olin has great suggestions on what to do and where to eat. Two of his suggestions that were fantastic were the Patee Musuem and Justus Drug Store Restaurant. Just completely over the top.

Great 5th Anniversary Stay

My wife and I stayed in the Water Spa Room for our second visit to Whiskey Mansion. I proposed to her five years ago during our first visit, so I surprised her with a trip back on the date of the fifth anniversary. The room was very clean and the breakfast was delicious. Olin has done a lot of work to restore the house and it looks amazing.

Weekend Get-Away!!!

My wife and I were over due for time for us "only" with no kids. In searching for a unique place to stay, we found Whiskey Mansion B&B and it sounded nice. Once we entered the property, I could this was home was renovated extremely nice. Being in real estate my self, I could tell a lot of care went into every detail of the rooms. Our stay for two nights was exactly what we needed. Our room was perfect for us and the food was amazing. I would recommend Whiskey Mansion to any as it very affordable for the quality and value. We will certainly consider another stay there in the future.

Awesome stay!

Our stay at Whiskey Mansion was our first b&b experience. It was wonderful. The house is beautiful and Olin was a wonderful host. Breakfast was delicious! I didn't want to leave. We want to go back in the summer.

Great weekend away

This house was burned to the point where one would think it would be demolished in the 1990s, but it was restored by the owner to amazing condition. If you love old, elegant houses, this is the place to stay! I stayed in the "Tower Room" - a cute room with a little sitting area in a part of the house that at one time had a tower. The room was very comfortable. The owner has a great scrapbook about the past of the house, and was very willing to answer my numerous questions about the restoration of the house. Breakfast in the AM was delicious, and included some amazing sourdough cranberry/walnut bread. If you want the sterile blandness of a Hilton or Marriott, this is not the place for you, but if you want to stay in an elegant Victorian mansion with excellent service and breakfast, (and a very friendly red tabby kitty named Josephine to great you), definitely go here! I am looking forward to going back again sometime in the future.

Great place to stay in St. Joe

I've stayed here seven times over the last 4 years and always look forward to coming back. This historic house is amazing and the breakfast is always great.
