Penny Farthing Inn is a lovely B&B close to everything. Marie, David and their grown kids, Matt and Laura, are the very definition of hospitality and warmth. All the rooms offer either a small porch or direct access to a porch so you can relax outside and enjoy Florida. Breakfast is a "sweet" ( pancakes, crepes, etc) one day and... More

A friend of mine suggested this place and it had a great summer special. I never stayed at a B&B before and what a wonderful experience. We opted for the Catherine Room. It was complete with a jacuzzi tub which we made full use of. We had our own balcony too! The house was so uniquely built and adorable. The... More

The pennyfarthing bed-and-breakfast had really good rooms,bathrooms, and beds. My grand parents stayed in one room and my parents stayed in a seperate room. I stayed with my grand parents. They also had really good breakfast too!! Also it was near the Flagler College. Can't wait to go there again!

Everything about our stay was wonderful! Very comfortable bed, room, porch and, my favorite, claw-foot bathtub! We stayed in the Victorian Bedchamber. Afternoon tea with warm scones were another favorite of mine. The breakfasts were 4-star restaurant quality, and the table settings somewhat formal and fabulous! A lovely outside area to sit/eat; but temps were too hot to enjoy that... More

This is one of the best B & B we've stayed at in St. Augustine. It's location is wonderful...off the main roads, but very close to everything. The building itself is charming and the staff is so very pleasant. We stayed in the Victoria room and it was beautiful. It had a fabulous patio to sit in with rocking chairs... More

We had never stayed in a Bed and Breakfast before so I figured I would try this one as all the reviews were so good. We just stayed here July 29-31, 2015. Beautiful Inn. We stayed in the Catherine Chamber. Beautifully decorated room, with hard wood floors. The bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was a great size with a... More

This was our second visit to the Penny Farthing Inn. Once again, they out did themselves on hospitality. Loved the Victoria room with the large claw foot tub/ shower and a private balcony. That is a room I would love to come home to. The hosts, Marie and David, are exceptional. Really enjoyed the friendliness of their daughter as well.... More
