This three-story, 13-room Queen Victorian stunner is the oldest continuously operating inn in St. Augustine. Common areas are inviting and cozy, with a little help from the fireplaces, sweeping bay windows, and a baby grand piano that guests are welcome to play. Innkeepers Pat and Ted Dobosz, seasoned hospitality execs, have renovated several rooms, adding refreshed decorations and furniture. Décor runs the gamut from contemporary to classic, with carpets, fireplaces, hardwood floors, Jacuzzis, and, in some rooms, balconies with hammocks. A third-floor suite has a huge living room and balcony with magnificent views of the bay. A new deck overlooking a koi pond is command central for the outstanding breakfasts served daily—ham, grits, lox, bagels, eggs Benedict, and fresh baked pastries, among other temptations. On weekends there's a delicious buffet and make-your-own Bloody Marys and mimosas. There's also a wine social every evening, and a guest pantry stocked with teas, coffees, and lemonade. The inn's residential location makes it a perfect starting point to blend in and act like a local. Explore the area by foot or borrow one of the house bikes. Children over 8 are welcome, and there are a few dog-friendly rooms.
