This was our first stay at a B&B and it was outstanding; consequently, the bar has been set very high for future B&B stays! The Dickens House location is great, you can walk to museums and restaurants and it's located in the beautiful Historic Old Northeast section of St. Petersburg. We were in St. Pete for a Birthday celebration, so... More

Great experience.. Loved the house and the food! The room we stayed in was tiny but so was our budget so that's okay! It was cute though, and didn't bother us. There's nice bath tubs and coffee hot chocolate and tea and cookies always downstairs. Really made you feel relaxed!

We stayed at the Dickens House Bed and Breakfast for four nights. The house has every amenity that you would want in a B&B and Ed has paid attention to the small details. Ed is a delightful host. Probably the best thing was that most of the other guests had stayed there before, which gave the place a family feel.... More

Ed Caldwell, proprietor, is the most gracious host, as well as the most talented cook of the best breakfast presentation, variety, and taste that I have ever experienced while on vacation. We stayed in the Cottage room and we were impressed by the cleanliness without scents and the comfortable, convenient surroundings that reflect Ed's sense of what his guests like... More

My wife and I stayed in the Carriage Suite in the back of the main house and loved it. We booked it for the Tampa Bay Blues Festival which is 2 blocks away, so close we could use it for a rest stop between acts. The breakfasts were exquisite, the grounds clean, and the innkeeper very personable and helpful. A... More

We don't often stay at B & B's for various reasons but we had seen this one in Lonely Planet and came across it whilst looking for somewhere to stay in St Pete's. It looked interesting so we knocked on the door and Ed took us in for two nights, after that he was full. And, after a night we... More

My husband and I were thrilled to stay at Dickens House B&B. Exquisite breakfasts, marvelous quiet room, accommodating proprietor/Ed, and within walking distance to great parks, restaurants, and museums. The renovation was a remarkable labor of love. If we ever return to St. Petersburg, we'd stay at Dickens House in a heartbeat.

We enjoyed a weekend at the Dickens House, and enjoyed every minute. The innkeeper was very helpful, giving us directions to the local attractions and obviously wanted the guests to have a wonderful time. IWe were very thankful to have filling and nutritional breakfasts of fresh fruit and frittata or breakfast burrito with excellent salsa. As coffee drinkers, we were... More

My wife and I stayed here on the second floor rear room (forget name). The house is gorgeous and the rooms are very comfortable. The breakfast was great and the location is convenient to the water front...we walked to the Dali museum and totally enjoyed the waterfront. Our only negative was that we didn't know how to adjust the AC...it... More

only a few blocks from the cultural centre, museums and restaurants, two blocks from the waterfront and swimming pool. Ed is a very friendly chatty host with lots of tips for the area and he cooks up a fantastic breakfast. Free wifi. Gay friendly. And a lovely deck out the front to sit on, watch the world go by and... More
