This B&B is as comfortable as being home and more interesting and friendly than any hotel could be. The location to downtown couldn't be better, the rooms are quiet, breakfast is a treat and you will meet other interesting travelers. Don't miss it.

This B&B is simply amazing! Not only is every room beautifully decorated (we've been in 3 or 4 different suites), breakfast is always delicious. Dickens ouse is also in a great location - walking distance to all the best restaurants and steps away from the water. Ed, the owner, is such a wonderful host and friendly person, it always feels...

We stayed only for 1 night and definitely love to go there again. Everything you read on the reviews is true, it is a cozy, amazing place to stay. A beautiful house with beautiful rooms that you love immediately, we specially loved the front porch where we stayed with our cup of tea and coffee. Ed & Jane are the... More

If you love beautiful old homes (100 years is old by American standards,) with modern amenities, great hospitality and mouth-watering breakfasts then Dickens House is a must. The lovingly restored 1912 Craftsman-style, 3 story home is like taking a journey back in time. All the beautiful architectural details have been preserved keeping that warm homey feel - yet the bathrooms... More

We liked our stay in the Dikkens House very much. The rooms are very comfortable, beautifully styled and decorated, and everything is just perfect to the very detail. We also felt looked after very well. Arriving late we could use a code to enter on ourselves, found a map ready for us with nearby restaurant suggestions, and next morning: a... More

I stayed at this B&B while visiting a cousin who lives nearby. The place lived up to its reputation in every respect. Ed is a great host. I happened to be there for the city's tour of heritage homes of which this is one. Ed and his sister Jane hosted dozens of visitors very graciously.

We were looking for a nice place to stay at St Petersburg and luckily found Dickens House! The owner Ed is a really friendly and extremely attentive host. The "Perry-Snell" room was spacious, very clean and furnished with love for detail. We felt as if in a different time and world. Breakfast was superb, too: loads of fresh fruit, eggs,... More

We stayed two nights in the Dickens Suite which is an extremely comfortable room. Wonderful bedding, large bathroom and sitting area. The bathroom has great quality soaps, shampoo/conditioner and the towels were very plush. The home was very well maintained and very clean. Ed, the inn keeper, was such a gracious host. He thinks of every detail you may need... More
