What you didn’t know about St. Augustine B&Bs

Sure, they’re romantic. Yes, they’re beautiful. And, of course, they’re charming. But that’s just half the story.

July 1, 2020

If you're going to visit the nation's oldest city, why not totally immerse yourself in the experience with a stay at a Bed & Breakfast in the heart of the Historic District? From the moment you arrive you'll be greeted by friendly innkeepers who love what they do and love sharing this special city with visitors. A romantic dinner for two? Scariest ghost tours? A sunset cruise? Best latte in town? They've got you covered.

You'll likely find a complimentary bottle of wine or chocolates awaiting you in your room, perhaps a complimentary champagne toast or complimentary wine & cheese in the afternoon and, of course, a spectacular breakfast on the porch in the morning. Each inn has its own signature welcome that makes guests feel special, like they're family. It's why so many visitors return, season after season, year after year. And with special mid-week deals, B&B guests have reason to visit more often.

The Collector Luxury Inn & Gardens - Nine historic buildings and 30 individually appointed guestrooms make this one of St. Augustine's most upscale and unique inns.

The garden courtyard has an outdoor heated pool, fire pits and an open-air bar perfect for an evening cocktail.

- It's hard to believe this charming cottage with its candlelit porches and vintage courtyard spaces is just steps away from many of St. Augustine's attractions, shops and restaurants. The inn itself is beautiful and its location close to everything makes it even more appealing.

Many fine restaurants, art galleries, carriage tours, and the waterfront are within four short blocks.
