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.
ThIs was my husband's and I first stay at a bed and breakfast and we fell in love! We will definitely return. The service was excellent, the food was great, and everything about our stay was just wonderful!
What a beautiful old inn. Great location in the historic district and plenty of parking. The staff were all very helpful with all questions about the town, restaurants, etc. Our room was kept in great care by the housekeepers each day. Good variety of food at breakfast each day, snacks at happy hour and nightly desserts. Two suggestions: the coffee needs to be stronger and the Sirius radio channel needs to go or to be varied from the current channel of institutional nursing home tunes.
We had a wonderful time here on our anniversary. The rooms were nicely decorated and the bed was very comfortable. Mr. Gibbs did an awesome job in the kitchen. He prepared a 3 course brunch every day that was above and beyond our expectations ( the food was actually better than some of the restaurants in town) the staff was very friendly. We will be going back in the near future.
Kathleen made us feel welcome the moment we stepped through the front door of her beautiful home. Although we did not have a reservation, she showed us every room and even let us in early. We were only staying for one night, so we appreciated having the extra time. It was heaven on earth in the Valencia Room. We had to stay another night because it was so incredible in the House of Dreams. We changed our vacation plans just to dream another night If you stay there, you will be treated like royalty. Kathleen always has fresh baked goods, cold drinks, wine, beer, snacks and anything else you can think of, She met our every need and exceeded our expectations. My husband and I have been together for 35 years and this was like a second honeymoon. We will certainly be back!!! Thank You, Kathleen and Stephanie.
Wonderful off the main road inn! This place was just what we were looking for to celebrate our anniversary. The room was gorgeous, the view was incredible, and the food was amazing. Close enough to all of the sites that you don't need your car to go anywhere. We didn't get a chance to try the dinner menu, but the resident's only breakfast was amazing...the fruit cocktail was the best we've ever had. Highly recommend and we can't wait to go back.
We spent two nights in Marie's room and were pleased in every respect. The inn is located in the historic area of St. Augustine and has its own private parking facility. It has on site a private swimming pool which, we were told, is unusual for a bed and breakfast. The food was excellent. Beginning with breakfast, continuing with the 5 pm social hour and dessert time in the evening, delicious became a way of life. The staff was very friendly and helpful with any need. For a B and B getaway, St. Francis would be hard to beat. And lastly, we will return!!
My wife and I decided to take a little pre-vacation before a BIG family reunion. We stayed at Journeys End and had a great time. Journeys End is located within easy walking distance of most of historic St. Augustine and many very nice restaurants and bars. Tim was able to direct us to several great little restaurants. The rooms are bright and comfortable, the beds were not too hard and not too soft but just right. Also ask for the Pecan Pie Mini-Muffins for breakfast, yummm! They are the best way to start the day.
My husband and I have stayed at Casa de Suenos several times over the past 12 years. It was recommended by the parents of a friend who have stayed at most of the B&Bs in St.Augustine. We stayed there for a week during our honeymoon and have been back several times over the years. We haven't begin back to stay in a while (due to having small children), but we have visited with Kathleen several times and referred many friends to the inn. Kathleen treats us like family and always makes my favorite breakfast if I remember to request it (Prailine French Toast). Now that our boys are getting older, we may be able to leave them for a night or two to celebrate our 13th wedding anniversary next year. We've stayed in the Sevilla, but the Cordova is now our favorite room. The prices may be a little higher than some other inns, but you truly do get what you pay for.
I am going to start by saying that I had never stayed in a Bed & Breakfast before I went to St. Francis Inn. I always thought that it was not my style, and it was reserved for an older crowd. However, after visiting St. Francis Inn, my view changed completely. I had the most lovely experience. The service was friendly and helpful. The food was out of this world delicious and healthy.The room was clean, comfortable, and very beautiful. I am still remember every moment I spend at St. Francis even weeks after I returned. I had an unforgettable vacation at St, Augustine and the biggest part of that was thanks to St. Francis Inn.
We booked a room just a few days in advance so we can stay at the beach not to far from Orlando. Wow! What a treat. The service is simply amazing. The rooms are much more than I expected for the price and the location. There are dozens of casual restaurants with evening entertainment in walking distance. The people in the area are so nice - we did not encounter the riff raff we usually do in other beach locales. We have found our new favorite beach and resort.
The White Orchid in Flagler Beach, FL provides guests a wonderful and relaxing experience unique to coastal Florida. From the wonderful breakfast, mineral pool, spa, friendly staff, beautiful rooms, and location across from easy beach access; The White Orchid team provides a value to their clients that you will not find in any other location. We have chosen to return to the White Orchid twice a year for the last 6 years, we would highly recommend this experience to all of our family and friends.
We enjoyed a great dinner meal and romantic evening in this very lovely and quaint B&B. The hosts were most accommodating, the food was delicious and the staff very conscientious, friendly, and efficient.
My mother and I stayed at the Penny Farthing Inn for 3 nights. It was our first B&B experience and the inn came highly recommended to us. We were not disappointed. When we arrived, Matthew told us to think of the inn as our home and it quickly felt that way and remained so for our entire stay. Matthew was an excellent host! He provided information about activities in the historic downtown area and even made a dinner reservation (Including pick up) for us. Historic downtown and most attractions were within walking distance. Breakfast was excellent every day. I have dietary restrictions and Matthew and Betty graciously accommodated them. Afternoon tea, wine and snack were such a nice touch. We stayed in The Cambridge room which was spacious and quaint. This room was on the first floor (limited steps for my elderly mother) and had a king sized bed. Right outside of the room was a covered patio that we enjoyed as a reading spot. We hated to leave and will definitely be back!
I was planning on popping the question in St. Augustine and booked a room at the Old City House. I made arrangements with Juan, the Inn Keeper, to have a bottle of wine and cheese and fruit in the room when we got there. I stayed in the Cordova room... we loved it. It had a nice 4-post bed and two windows with nice views... also had a shared balcony porch. It is easy walking distance to practically everything. The complementary breakfast was hearty and delicious. We didn't eat dinner at the restaurant, but it was packed and we heard it was very good. It's a nice touch that they have a bar also for a night cap... we had a celebratory glass of champagne on the night of our engagement. Juan and Christopher were great hosts. You can't go wrong at this place. We will be back.
We had a great time at the Kenwood B&B. Our daughter got married in St.Augustine and many of our guest stayed at this beautiful B&B. It was super clean, Breakfast was excellent and accommodations were very cozy. It was my first experience at a bed and breakfast and I will be back!
