We always look at reviews when looking for places to stay and this visit was no different. The rave reviews about this wonderful B&B are ALL TRUE. I rarely submit reviews, but I felt that this special B&B deserves it, especially for future guests to review!
As local Florida residents, we "escaped" for a weekend from the corporate beat down and really enjoyed our stay at the Victorian. We have been to St. Augustine a few times and stayed at another B&B (Casablanca Inn), before, which was nice as well, however, it was not as cozy and welcoming as the Victorian. We were made to feel like we were at home the minute we walked through the front door. The extremely hospitable owner graciously greeted us and welcomed us into the inn, despite our late arrival (just before 10pm). We sat comfortably in the living room to fill out paperwork and were then, given the keys to our 'home'.
We stayed in the Serenity room, which was nice because it was in one of the corners of the house, so it felt almost like we had our own private quarters. The room was very nice and quaint - almost takes you back to the early 1900's the way they have it decorated with antiques throughout the room and house.
The owners are right there with you in the morning as the staff prepares breakfast and you get to know them and meet other interesting guests, as well. They were more than hospitable and truly made our stay quite memorable. They even inspired us to retire one day from the corporate world to have our own B&B someday in Italy! ;o)
We DEFINITELY plan to stay there, again, for our future St. Augustine weekend escapes!
