My reason for choosing this B&B was first due to the excellent reviews, which I needed as I had never stayed at one. But still you never know! The owner, Marie, from her gentle guidance when we got lost getting there and all the way through out stay, absolutely no complaints. The whole place is charming, clean, felt like we were visiting a wonderful home in England. It was my daughter's 16th and in the room we were greeted with balloons and a sweet 16 balloon, and on her birthday at breakfast she got a delicious cupcake with a candle was to make a wish, and a card from Marie, which was such a sweet touch. And breakfast! So sumptious, keeps you filled for all your sightseeing, of which there is a lot. On our last morning, we got afull English breakfast, and the day before eggs benedict, and on and on. And afternoon tea, the assortment of eats and drinks, delicious scones, cake, excellent coffee, teas, white and red wine, not to mention the decanter of sherry in the room. We stayed in the Cherry Rose, which was very clean, charming and cozy, and the bed was seriously comfortable, and we had a balcony to sit out on. The Inn is also close to everything; from the day we arrived till the day we left, the car never moved, and the house is situated far enough away (a block or two) to have peace and quiet, but close enough to all the main shopping areas, restaurants, Flagler College, etc. I could go on and on. We're going back December, and then in June 2013. This will be my place to stay whenever I'm visiting wonderful St. Augustine!
