Fodor's Expert Review Aunt Martha's Bed and Breakfast

315 Shell Ave. SE, Fort Walton Beach, Florida, 32548, USA

Although it has been pampering and charming its guests since 2001, Aunt Martha's can transport you back half a century to when Florida was still a sleepy little state. Smack-dab on the banks of Santa Rosa Sound and steps away from the water, the bed-and-breakfast is private and neat as a pin. Five rooms feature floor-to-ceiling windows, a baby-grand piano is poised to be played, and a library is stocked for guests. In the morning, the pampering continues with an old-fashioned Southern breakfast.
