“True Hospitality & Romance”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

My husband and I stayed at the Westcott House for only 2 nights of our honeymoon and truly wished we stayed LONGER! We felt so spoiled by Joy and her fabulous staff, each day we had a marvelous breakfast where you could choose as much or little as you liked. They were always so generous! The bed was so comfortable and the room came with a fireplace and robes! Very romantic! We enjoyed the treats and story hour, as well as late nights on the balcony watching the water in the harbor. We simply loved our stay and can't wait to return. It was like having another home! Thank you so much! Excellent Job!

Room Tip: The main house has access to balconies upstairs and the front porch-as well as a swing on the upstai...

Hello again, happy newlyweds! We were so happy you chose Westcott House to celebrate your special occasion, and we're glad you had a pleasant experience here. Thank you for your kind compliments of our staff and the breakfast. We're glad you enjoyed your room and took advantage of the cozy fireplace, robes, and especially the swing on the upstairs balcony. It can be a very romantic spot, even with the chilly weather we've been having :) We especially loved your comment about the Inn feeling like "another home." That is exactly the experience we are aiming for for our guests. Thanks again, and we hope to see you both again soon, Cheers!

The Bayfront Westcott House in St. Augustine is amazing. From the quality of the accomodations to the breakfasts to the ambience of the room and grounds we were totally satisfied. The owners and staff were friendly and helpful. The electric fireplace in our room added a nice touch on a cool evening. The beds and bedding were so comfortable we had two very restful nights!!! We will definitely return on our next trip and would highly recommend this B & B!!!!

Room Tip: Rooms on the second floor have a nice view of the bay. The location is perfect for touring historic...

Recently spent 2 nights here. What a gem..........................the room was immaculate. All linen and towels were high quality. Breakfasts were plentiful, whatever you wished was served only to please. All staff were customer focused and this can only be accredited to the owners input on training. Thank you Joy and all her staff. This is a superb place to rest your head!!!!!!!

We were very satisfied with the hospitality of Joy and staff. The staff aimed to please. A different delicious hot breakfast was prepared for us daily, along with yogurt, fruit and cereal, if we so desired. Coffee and tea was available all day long. The bed was very comfortable. We had a large clean well appointed room with a jacuzzi and shower. The nightly wine and cheese allowed us the opportunity to met other vacationers. Would definitely return to this property. On the last day of our visit we saw a gorgeous sunrise from the front porch of the B&B.

We had a 2 night stay here and it was absolutely fabulous! The staff was wonderful and very inviting! The rooms are beautiful and the Inn itself is perfectly located - easy walks to the center of town! Breakfasts were delicious - loved the eggs benedict! We had a slight room issue and Joy was so great and understanding - immediately addressing our issue and fixing the problem - perfect customer service! The afternoon social was a great bonus - we enjoyed having a glass of wine sitting on the porch overlooking the water! I have to mention the storyteller that was there one night -- she was so entertaining and interesting - what a great idea to have her come and talk - very enjoyable! We loved our stay thanks to Joy and her staff! We will definately be back!!

Joy et. al. made our week long stay just like being part of the family. From the sumptuous breakfasts (different each day) to the elegant rooms complete with comfy robes to the elegant decor, we could not have relaxed more. Each morning started with a view of the water from the porch while sipping morning coffee. We had a couples massage in the Menendez room that was almost the highlight of the week. We cannot wait to go back.

We just got back from our 19th anniversary weekend stay on the Bayfront in St. Augustine. The place was beautiful and well-kept with a fantastic view of the bayfront from our front porch. The owners and staff were fantastic and we thought the breakfast was excellent. We would definitely stay there again. For free parking, you do have to park about 4 blocks away, but that wasn't a problem for us. Once we parked for the weekend, we could walk anywhere we wanted to go and didn't need our car until we were ready to leave.

Room Tip: We loved our cozy little room (the Virginia, #106), but it is right next door to the dining area, so...

Hello! Thank you for choosing the Westcott House to celebrate your anniversary, and for taking the time to post a review. We're so glad you had a nice time and enjoyed your stay. Thanks for your compliments on our breakfast and our staff, we will certainly pass them on. Parking here can be a little tricky, so we're glad you didn't find the parking lot too inconvenient. We do have a few spots behind the house, but as you know it was a very busy weekend :) Thanks again, and we hope to see you both again soon. Cheers!
