Perfect Getaway Weekend

5 on June 04, 2017

My husband and I stayed here during our anniversary for two nights. The minute we walked in the door we were greeted by the very friendly and pleasant innkeepers, Suzanne and Bob. We felt comfortable and welcomed instantly. We had great conversation, and they offered us 24/7 happy hour and snacks straightaway. The fresh baked cookies were amazing. We stayed in the "Serenity" room which was very pleasant. It was a spacious room, and it had a great view of the city. We loved how the beautiful terrace was right outside our door. We would sip on the complimentary wine and sway on the porch swing to unwind. The room was very clean, the sheets and bed were very comfortable, and even the soaps/conditioners were super cute and smelled so fresh and clean! The breakfast here were our favorite meals of the trip. It was the best service we had all weekend. Suzanne and Bob were quick to fill our coffees and provide the delicious food as soon as we were ready. Several people would ask for the recipes, because they were so good! The location was perfect. Just far enough away from the hustle and bustle, close enough to walk everywhere. We brought our bikes which actually required more room than the provided parking space, thus Bob and Suzanne let us park in their driveway. I don't know how you could be more accommodating. The next time we come back to St. Augustine, we'll look for no other place than here.

Great girls weekend getaway

We had such an amazing weekend and can't imagine having stayed anywhere else. From the minute we walked in the front door we were taken care of by the innkeepers. The home is absolutely charming. If we find ourselves back in St. Augustine we will certainly be staying at the Old Powder House Inn.

Great stay at Old Powder House Inn!

We came down from Monticello to celebrate my birthday and we just had a great experience with The Old Powder House Inn! Jessica called us on the way down to make sure she still would be there for us and when we got there she took great care of us and we stayed in a cute, very clean, with all you need room! Next morning we had a very good breakfast and we had the pleasure to meet Suzanne and Latoya. So nice and friendly ladies and as I said, breakfast both days were delicious! Location on this B&B is also excellent and we can very much recommend it! And we have been down here before but stayed at other places but we will definitely come back here, next time! And by the way, it's very affordable too!

What a wonderful place for a getaway or any special occasion. It is very clean and everyone treats you like family. Breakfast was outstanding and makes you wish they had it twice a day! I will definitely be back and will also be bringing family and friends. Thanks Bob and Susan and your great staff! Also thanks to Carl and Jen for taking me. Carole

This wonderful Inn and the amazingly kind hosts are a real delight to stay in St. Augustine. The hotel is at foot distance from the very historical center and breakfast was incredible. Felt like home. L&F

Relaxing vacation

4.0 on October 13, 2014

We had a very nice stay. Breakfast was very good, room was pleasant and clean. The only thing I would tell the inkeepers is that visitors need 2 keys for each room if there are 2 guests in these. Husbands went to golf and ladies went shopping. Each wanted to be able to get in and out of the room. The response that it is a "bed and breakfast and not a hotel" was inappropriate. Otherwise, very nice stay.

Great location B & B
