“An Unforgettable Getaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

My partner and I stayed in June and it was absolutely wonderful. The Inn is situated just off the downtown strip (a very short walk) and provided a much more private feeling than previous B&B's we have stayed in. Parking was very easy. AC was very cold. Water pressure was perfect.

The owner, Marie, treated us like we were part of the family - going out of the way to prepare us vegan friendly breakfasts, having an wonderfully appointed home and great advice about the area.

While we were there a big storm blew the power out and we wound up sitting in the parlor with the owner and her family playing guitars and drinking wine until it cleared up ---- absolutely the heart of why you stay at a B&B instead of a hotel.

We highly recommend this establishment to other travelers and we will definitely be coming back!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Victoria - we wanted the balcony. It was a great choice and very spacious. Also l...

Owner, Marie, made our visit so much fun. Breakfast and Happy Hour were excellent, food was delicious. Complimentary Sherry available in our room. B&B is in the St Augustine Historic District. Marie and Betty made us feeling right at home. Will stay there again.

Anyone who frequents B&B's will not be disappointed. Penny Farthing Inn is one of the best I have found. The Inn is well maintained and amazingly decorated. The owner and staff will make your stay enjoyable and memorable. Just a short walk to many shops and restaurants of old St Augustine. On and off trolley will give you an informative tour of the area.

Room Tip: Website has pictures to help you choose the room that appeals to you. All are beautifully appointed.

My boyfriend and I chose the Penny Farthing Inn for our 3 year anniversary as well as our first B&B experience. It was better than we could have expected! Marie greeted us at the door, showed us around and made us feel right at home upon arrival. Complimentary Sherry in the room was delicious (sipped on that one for a while...) as well as wine hour. The movie selection is excellent if you want to relax in the beauty of this home :) We chose the Victoria room and loved the 2nd floor balcony! Both of us highly recommend this B&B and we will definitely be back for our next anniversary (or weekend getaway) to stay in another unique room!

Room Tip: Victoria room has a huge balcony in the front of the building!

My husband and I stayed one night here on our way to Key Biscayne. Marie greeted us and she was absolutely delightful. We stayed in the Victoria room on the 2nd floor which was very comfortable. Breakfast was delicious, french toast with bananas drizzled with a wonderful maple sauce. Great location located in the historic district of St. Augustine. We would definitely come back.

I surprised my boyfriend with weekend away at this Bed & Breakfast for his birthday. We arrived mid afternoon and were greeted by Marie who welcomed us and made us feel right at home. We stayed in the Tree House room which had its own private stairway entrance and patio. It was very nice and quiet. The breakfasts were delicious, she even made sure to get our likes and dlislikes when we arrived. The location is just a couple blocks from St. George St, and right across the street from the Lightner Museum. It was close enough that we didn't have to drive anywhere. We met the whole family while we were there too; Marie, her husband, son, and even their daughter, who just happened to be visiting. There was a social hour each night for all the guests to enjoy with provided beer, wine and hors d'oeuvres. It was a perfect weekend away, we will be back.

We got married at the Penny Farthing Inn two years ago and we've been back every year on our anniversary. Marie, Dave and Betty are all so nice ! They really pamper you. We love it so much there we plan to go back every year on our anniversary. We look forward to trying out all the rooms. The breakfast is always suburb and the rooms are very clean and cozy!
