St. Francis Inn Bed & Breakfast Review

If the walls of this late-18th-century house in the Historic District—and the oldest inn in the Oldest City—could talk, they would tell of slave uprisings, buried doubloons, and Confederate spies. The inn, a guesthouse since 1845, offers main-house rooms and suites, a room in the former carriage house, and a five-room cottage. Furnishings are a mix of antiques and just plain old, the vibe is serene, and the food fresh and well prepared (there's a chef on property). A stay includes thoughtful extras like free admission to the Anastasia Athletic Club; access to a beach house; and an evening social with enough snacks, desserts, and house-blend coffees, teas, and hot chocolates to pass for dinner.

    Great stay with my wife!

    My wife and I needed a get away 4 day mini vacation, and stayed at this inn. Loved it! Enjoyed morning coffee either on a balcony rocking chair, or in the courtyard garden. Our room was just as pictured on their website. No surprises! Breakfast was real good, staff friendly, very clean. We parked our car and walked to everything in St Augustine. Very good location and quiet area. We took a package off their website, and it worked out as a good deal. So much is included in the rate.
