“Excellent Bed & Breakfast”
Reviewed May 20, 2013

We pulled up to the front of the Kenwood Inn after a long 7 hour drive and were greeted by Rachael with a big smile and hello. She helped us with our luggage and instructed us where to park the car. When we got back to the inn, our bags were already in our room and the owner, Pat, was there to greet us. Pat is so friendly; you feel like you have known her for years instead of minutes. She is always there to help.
The Kenwood Inn is in the perfect location; a quick walk to downtown and nestled in a back street away from the traffic. Our room was quite large and very comfortable with a fireplace, large screen TV mounted on the wall, king bed, bathroom with a large tub and modern tile floors and walls and closet space.
Every morning, Pat serves delicious coffee and a breakfast that included fruit, pastries, pancakes and fresh squeezed orange juice. One of our family members is diabetic and Pat made a special breakfast for him. Such great service!
Pat's staff also includes Charlie - a quiet man but so helpful and friendly. He was always there to lend a hand or answer a quick question.
The Inn has 13 rooms, an outside patio area for lounging or entertaining and a nice pool to relax inn and escape the heat.

Room Tip: We were on the bottom floor away from the front entrance and pool so that was a good choice but I wo...

Incredible experience! Perfect Honeymoon location for my husband and I. We booked the Kenwood on a whim and it turned out to be the best location we stayed at of all the places we visited on the coast. The innkeeper made us feel right at home. The service was impeccable! Worth every dime and more! We will be staying again as soon as possible!

I had the pleasure of spending 2 fabulous nights at this charming Inn. Pat was over the top as a hostess. The Inn was clean, relaxing, beautiful, charming and exceeded all of my expectations. The breakfasts were absolutely divine. I was lucky enough to have great weather during my stay so dining was in the adorable courtyard surrounded by the lovely gardens. My every need was met during my visit thanks to my wonderful hostess, Pat. I cannot wait to return!!!!!

Our stay at The Kenwood Inn was simply wonderful! The rooms were clean, bright and decorated in good taste. We were within walking distance from all of St. Augustine's historic sites and downtown. Pat, the owner was very accommodating and checked with us daily to see if we needed anything. She went out of her way to get me lactose free milk and helped us with getting discounts at local restaurants. Every evening we were treated to wine and yummy desserts. The breakfasts were delicious and ranged from traditional to gourmet. The presentation of the food, tables, plates, linens were like eating at a five star restaurant. Pat, had catered a dinner for my husband and family which was exceptional and delicious. Our family from Jacksonville had commented how great the food and ambiance was for a memorable birthday celebration. The staff: Rachel, Artie and Charlie were so attentive and friendly. Pat's attention to service, comfort and delicious meals have raised the bar when it comes to bed and breakfasts. When we come back to St. Augustine without a doubt our stay will be at The Kenwood Inn because the service was top notch and they made you feel like family. Thanks, again Pat. Elena and Phil Makris

Two blocks from the oldest street in the oldest city in the US, the Kenwood Inn is a great location to explore the city. The trolley tour stop is also only a two-block walk away, so you can see the city with out getting in your car. Pat is a gracious and knowledgeable hostess. The rooms are spacious and comfortable.

We arrived at the Kenwood Inn without a reservation. Pat met us at the door and treated us as though she had always known us. The Inn was perfect. The decor was inviting and delightful - bright as she is. Pat found a room for us and we were unsure of how long we would stay. Because of the inclement weather, we stayed only one night, but we knew we would return, if only to see Pat again and enjoy her hospitality. Three types of wine generously flowed from 5PM on.....Breakfast was beautifully prepared. We are vegetarians and Pat accommodated us. We traveled north for a week, but called Pat to say we just had to return. We stayed another two nights. During that time we met the most delightful people - a few of whom we will remain friendly with. The location could not have been better - right in Old Town. We have stayed at B&B's before, but I must say, this was the most inviting, friendly and warm Inn we have ever stayed at and would highly recommend it to everyone. I can't wait to return to St. Augustine just to spend time with Pat once again.
