We stopped here for the night on our way to Seaside. This hotel is a gem! The owners welcome you with true Southern Hospitality. The room was comfortable and breakfast was excellent! I'm only sad that we have just found this hotel. Hopefully, the new owners will take some hospitality lessons from Tom & Pam before they retire.

Pam & I will miss all of our friends when we retire. We are doing all we can to help the new owners with the transition. I am sure they will love the Hotel and all of the guests with the same authentic enthusiasm as we do. The Hotel has been a part of so many special occasions for its... More

such a sweet bed and breakfast. I stay here two nights a week. The breakfast is awesome, the only problem is breakfast doesn't start until 7:00 but they are each a culinary experience. The hotel has history and a certain relaxed atmosphere to it that can't be duplicated. It's being auctioned off at the end of August and I just... More

Thank you for sharing your experiences with others. We have the best guests ever! Pam and I have had a great time over the past 13 years and feel sure that the new owners will carry on the tradition. We invite all of our guests to join us one last time before we retire. We will be here until Sept... More

My wife surprised me when I walked in the door on Friday afternoon. She said, "Here's our bags, let's get going." The trip led us to the Hotel Defuniak in Defuniak Springs, FL. The first impression as I walked thru the front doors was, "I've just stepped back in time." The music playing was one by Frank Sinatra. The antique... More

If you find yourself in need of a Tesla charge or perhaps a wonderful night's sleep, you MUST stop in the the most charming B&B, tucked away between Tallahassee and Pensacola. My husband and I had NO idea where we were. We walked a bit down the main street and found this amazing, historic "beacon. Tom and Pam, the Propietors... More

We really loved our one night stay. Anne was a fabulous hostess, allowing for early check-in on a very busy day in town. July 4 in Defuniak Springs is equal to Mayberry USA. Our Room#8 was a quick elevator ride away, stairs were nearby. The room was tight. Could not walk between the bed and TV armoire unless you close... More

Bed & Breakfast built in 1920s, still has old decor, charming old school feel. Loved the old pictures, and art work that lined every wall. Bed was very comfortable. Everyone that worked there were very nice and informative about local places to visit and see. Nice fireworks show on the lake, you can see from hotel. Will be staying there... More

What a nice place. Bed was comfortable. Room was clean and the breakfast and hospitality was amazing. The owners were extremely friendly as was the breakfast hostess. Our only issue was that when we checked in we were given wrong information by the evening clerk about local restaurants and so we rushed out to dinner without cleaning up - when... More

We stayed for the last night of our honeymoon trip. It is a nice, quiet bed and breakfast. We were pleased with the friendliness of the staff and surprised with a box of chocolates in our room when we arrived. The breakfast was one of the best we have had with fruit, omelettes, bagel or pancakes. Needs some slight repair... More

We stayed as a stopping point on our way to New Orleans. The room was clean and comfortable. The bed was great. No problem with noise from the highway. Our only problem was it took a few minutes to find it. Would definitely stay again if near there,

Pros: The lobby, restaurant, and library are beautifully decorated and charming. The breakfasts are excellent and the owners are simply wonderful. Cons: the rooms are small and need renovation, the train can wake you up at night. The location is good for day trips to Santa Rosa Beach and Rosemary Beach.
