History of the Old Jail: Home to prisoners for over 60 years, the Old Jail in St. Augustine looks more like a resort than a maximum-security facility. The original structure was built in 1891 by Henry Flagler; and although it has been restored and renovated throughout the years, it looks very much the way it did when it opened over a century ago.
Our luxurious Victorian style rooms are a perfect way to rest after running in a race like The Jail Break 5k. In our beautiful Emerald room treat yourself to a soak in the jet Jacuzzi tub complete with a large double rain head walk in shower with body sprays. Wake up and enjoy our chef’s choice hot breakfast with coffee and juice served table side every morning. Our onsite parking and excellent location to historic downtown St. Augustine make seeing your favorite sites a breeze. Each room is decorated and named after a precious gemstone making Carriage Way Bed & Breakfast the Jewel of the Ancient City.
