About

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. Several rooms also include pullout queen size sofas. Beautiful balconies and porches are featured in many rooms. The Inn has central heat and air, and all rooms have private baths. All guestrooms feature hairdryers, bathrobes, overhead ceiling fans, HGTV televisions,and more. 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 saltwater swimming pool is adjacent to the courtyard through the gate and is very refreshing on those hot and humid summer days.

My sixth visit!

The grounds and interior get more beautiful with each visit, and the staff are both friendly and efficient. My guest, staying here for the first time, could not stop raving about the place. I recommend The Kenwood Inn above all others - it's like you're being ultra-pampered in your own glorious home!

This was our first time at The Kenwood Inn and we would recommend it to anyone. 5-star service and attention to detail. Each room was beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The morning breakfast was delicious with such a good variety. (We didn't need lunch after such a grand breakfast.) The staff was so friendly from the moment we were greeted at the door to checkout. And we especially enjoyed getting to know Pat, the Owner. She was key in making our stay in St. Augustine a big success. Thank-you to everyone at The Kenwood Inn !!! We hope to see you again soon.


Great stay, super location

3.4 on April 16, 2017

We had a super stay at the Kenwood Inn. the location was fabulous and allowed us plenty of time to tour St. Augustine by both foot and bike. We especially appreciated hearing the horses come by the window outside. The grounds were lovely though we did not get to enjoy the pool. Our room was on the hot side, so make sure you know how to adjust the temperature before you close the door for the night.


Kenwood is THE place to stay in St. Augustine!

My now fiancé and I have stayed at Kenwood twice and plan to keep returning. We love St. Augustine's historical, romantic atmosphere, and Kenwood is a piece of history that we love to experience when we're in town. The decor is awesome, and it's a quaint, quiet, and private getaway with a friendly staff, tasty breakfasts, and comfortable accommodations. We highly recommend staying here! It's pricey but worth the relaxing experience!


Fantastic Bed and Breakfast
