This is a beautiful bed and breakfast overlooking the intracoastal waterway in lovely historic St Augustine and we had an absolutly marvelous visit. From the moment we arrived we received over the top service from all the staff.The inn is warm and cozy and inviting and our room was just as we expected from the website. Every detail was considered from the electric fireplace, the huge kingsized bed (which was soft and warm with big fluffy pillows) to the 2 person Jacuzzi and the beautiful large room. Once we checked in and unpacked the car, we walked around the property and settled in to a couple of wicker chairs on the balcony and watched the boats sail up the intracoastal. At about 5:15 we were treated to drinks and appetizers in the charming little dining room. An adorable little storyteller dressed in a black victorian dress came by and shared some local stories with us which was very enjoyable. She had a delightful personality and was so much fun. (She is only there on Wednesday nights, so plan your visit accordingly if you can.) After that we walked up the street for dinner with our coupon in hand for a free dessert for guests staying at the Westcott. Yum! After dinner we walked back to our room and settled in for a warm and delightful evening. In the morning we enjoyed a wonderful breakfast fritatta, croissants, fruit and coffee. Although it was chilly out, we still opted for breakfast out on one of the porches. And although we were dressed warmly, the staff was not dressed particularly warmly and yet we still received the same warm service as all the others that were enjoying their breakfast in the cozy dining room.(We were the only crazy ones outside.) They continued to check on us to be sure everything was okay. We would highly recommend the Westcott. You will not be disapointed. We had a wonderful romantic trip and look forward to returning in the future.

My husband and I had absolutely no complaints. The service was wonderful. The room looked exactly as it was pictured on the website. The food was delicious. The location was awesome. We loved looking out into the bay and watching the sunrise, boats, sea life and the moon shimmering over the water.

Room Tip: Take the time to go to the website and view all the rooms to find a room that fits your needs.

This place is 100% wonderful!! Everything about the house is beautiful - wish we could plan another trip before Christmas as I am sure it will look lovely! The Minoran room was an excellent choice...the second floor was a perfect choice...very quiet and beautiful....not to mention romantic!

Room Tip: The second floor was an excellent choice if you can climb stairs!!

My husband booked this online for my birthday. It was a surprise! We couldn't have stayed anywhere that I would have enjoyed more and we have traveled pretty extensively. I loved everything about this place......the huge rooms with REAL furniture (not hotel furniture), the hardwood floors, pretty bath/spa products, spa robes, afternoon wine/hors d'oeuvres, fresh baked cookies/coffee available all day, walking distance to restaurants/stores, view of bay, and staff that made us feel like family! We had balconies with wicker furniture and breakfast served to us on the porch or patio (room service was also available). how wonderful to sit outside at breakfast and gaze out at the boats coming and going in the bay! In the afternoon we sat on a chaise or swing and enjoyed a glass of wine and beer.
We are already planning a return trip and we don't usually go to the same place twice so that says it all for Bayfront Wescott House!

Room Tip: Ask for an upstairs room with bay FRONT not just bay view. You will pay more, but it is worth every...

Beautiful B&B on the bay. The owners are great, the breakfast and happy hour was awesome! It's in the heart of everything and you are able to walk to any historic downtown event.
The parking is a bit of a jog, but you can drop your bags at your room before you head down to parking (2 blocks away). The only complaint was if you are staying down stairs, you can hear what is happening above you... I will def stay there again, but will ensure we have a room upstairs! Other then that it is a GREAT place!!!

Room Tip: Pick a room upstairs...you can hear too much above you.

This was a first visit for my husband and myself to this lovely inn. We couldn't have had a more perfect experience! Everything was better than we thought it would be, and the owners and all the staff were friendly and accommodating to all our needs. We stayed in a wonderful room, and it was beautifully appointed, with lovely antique furniture, wood floors, and even a fireplace! The room is located in the front of the house on the second floor and we had a perfect view of the bay. We sat on the porch each day and were happy to notice dolphins swimming close to the shore!

The breakfast each morning was superb, and cooked perfectly according to our requests - and served promptly at our designated time. It was wonderful to be able to place our order in the evening and know that everything would be ready at a time and place of our choosing. We chose to eat on the porch and it was the perfect spot to enjoy the delicious food!!

We also greatly enjoyed the peppermint bark chocolates, gourmet fresh baked cookies, and evening appetizers with wine and various beer selections each day we were there.

To summarize, we had a fantastic, wonderful visit and we are already planning our next trip!! The only negative thing to report is that we had to return home and face reality and go back to work!
