This was not my first stay at a bed and breakfast, I have stayed at others before in other parts of the country and know what they offer. So for this stay, I wanted something unique, quaint, romantic that was in the heart of St Augustine. To my surprise, this was not your typical B&B. Rather, it was ever so extra personal. Granted I am quite familiar with St Augustine and what to do but during check in, Michaele took it to a whole different level. It was if she was our very own personal concierge pointing out what to do and see. She even pointed out things that I never knew about. It was such attention to detail that just raised the bar so much further!
The room we stayed in was elegantly decorated and reflected the charm that says “St Augustine”. The room was clean and elegant; it went way beyond our expectations. As I have said, I have stayed in Bed and Breakfasts before but this stay has really far exceeded what I have experienced in the past. The next day we were greeted for breakfast and of course chose to eat outside. After all, part of the St Augustine experience is to awaken in the city and take in all that it has to offer. Eating outside was just that. And to knock the ball out of the park so to say, the breakfast was phenomenal. Everything was homemade and well prepared; I did not go away hungry. Both Michaele and Dean as well as their staff went out of their way to make sure the breakfast as well as taking our day to a great start.
I am going to visit there again. The staff and the charm of the Inn have made a deep impression. One that many days after I think back to that moment where it made this a great “stay-cation”.
