After a very long, rainy trip to Florida, it was such a delight to drive up to the front of the Bayfront Marin House. The hanging baskets, gardens, lovely green lawn and lawn furniture were such a beautiful welcome. Check in was a breeze and the folks in the office are very nice and accommodating. All staff is receptive to questions and gave us great dining advice. The happy hour in not to be missed. Not only for the delicious appetizers (didn't have the dessert, but they looked scrumptious); the wine, beer and sangria; but, best of all were all the delightful guests. Sitting, overlooking the bay, we had many wonderful conversations with new friends. Breakfasts were excellent and the service is outstanding. We had a plumbing issue which was taken care of to our satisfaction and accommodations were made to meet out needs for the morning. Then location is perfect for seeing all the attraction of the historic district. We will hopefully be able to visit again! Thanks to all for making this such a memorable trip.

I cannot say enough about the Bayfront Marin House Inn located in historic St Augustine's Old town right on the bay! After extensive searches on travel websites I thankfully stumbled upon the Bayfront Marin House Inn and the rest is now history Let me start by saying. The staff!! I will not try to list all of the staff by name in fear of missing one sweet name and offending one of our new wonderful dear friends. When we left we felt like we had left all of our best friends and favorite family members behind on our last day!! Mike & Sandy and friends at the Bayfront Marin Inn have created an experience with their place and presence that I am certain heaven must be like. Brian.... In Brian from our very first reassuring telephone conversation and emails Janeen and I had found in Brian a best friend a confidant, the only person that we would trust our lives and wedding with!! From our first day to our last with every single detail of our wedding meticulously covered with even more care, love and detail than even we could have mustered.... What else can I say but THANK YOU!! Although it has only been a few short days since we had to leave and come back to Buffalo, NY we miss you all so!! From Brians advice on places to see and visit when in St Augustine to his unending patience we will forever be grateful more than we can possibly say!! Brian had suggested a sunset cruise on the Schooner Freedom with its amazing staff to a horse drawn carriage ride with a driver that knew everything about St Augustine's history to dinner after our wedding at the Old City Restaurant and the majestic St Augustine lighthouse that as Janeen says "I am in love with"..Shear perfection St Augustine!!! Your Grateful friends, Janeen & Joe

Right when we got out of our car to explore before checking in the rain decided to pour so we were under our umbrella in frnt of the B & B discussing whether to try and check in early when one of the staff ran out and gave us her umbrella and told us to come on in and register. We were taken to our room early and enjoyed the rest of our evening. The rain let up and we had a wonderful time. We have been checking out locations for the last year to decide on locations for our wedding an honeymoon. This is it. The room was beautiful.
