I've stayed here before - and I only live 35 miles away! The perfect base camp for exploring St. Augustine. Right on the river with beautiful water views. You can always count on a friendly greeting and tour of your facilities. We were offered an upgraded room without even asking. Breakfast is wonderful with a menu - where you choose whatever suits your fancy + plus there is a super special breakfast du jour as an option. The coffee is wonderful. It is everything a B&B should be. Warm & Friendly. Comfortable Clean Rooms. Great Location.

Room Tip: Even though our room was on the Street Side (River Side) it was very quiet.

This place is a class act. Barbara, especially, made us feel like we were guests in her home, and she took care of our every need. Our room was on the ground floor and was superb. It was large with a view of the bay with a nice bath and a vanity area outside of the shower area, so I was able to dry my hair and put on my make-up away from the steamy bathroom after my husband showered. There were yummy cookies, brownies and chocolate bark for snacks in the afternoon and evening, and from 5:30-7:00, there was wine and hors d'oeuvres available. The whole staff was friendly, helpful and gracious. Joy, the owner, was very sweet and helpful whenever we weren't bugging poor Barbara. The breakfasts were excellent, and the second morning, they set up two more tables away from the regular eating area for our friends and us rather than having us separate or squeeze in with the other guests. I cannot say enough good things about this inn.

I can't say enough good things about The Westcott house, Joy, or her staff. My wife and I got married in St. Augustine in December. We had already booked a room for a few nights here but were planning to have the ceremony elsewhere. After having no luck finding another location, Joy happily allowed us to use the courtyard at the house. Upon arrival Joy went out of her way to make sure I had help getting bags to the room and making sure there wasn't anything I needed. This was great of course, but then not only did she ask where we were going to have the ceremony, she moved tables, swept off the courtyard, provided white, linen table cloths and even rose petals. Then it rained :) So after having to move the ceremony to the porch, she again moved tables, chairs, table cloths, and rose petals so we could have a very beautiful setting for our wedding. She went well above and beyond what she should have or needed to, and it was very much appreciated. Thank you, Joy!

As for the bed and breakfast itself.......I don't see us staying anywhere else in town. Ever. We stayed in the carriage house, in the Catherine room, it was absolutely beautiful. Two balconies, double shower heads, jacuzzi, could not ask for more. The breakfast was amazing, we had breakfast in bed two mornings (really, really do this!) it was delivered (by Joy, of course) right on time, wonderful food, a large pitcher of mimosa, and the best hot cocoa I've ever had. There were also options for your breakfast each morning. (As a comparison, we have also stayed at The Inn on Charlotte, this site raves about the food there, but they aren't in the same league with these folks. In any way.)

There is no need to stay anywhere else, this was an amazing experience and we can't wait to go back.

The Bayfront Wescott House is above and beyond what a B&B should be. The location is central to all you want to see in St Augustine. The breakfast is outstanding with a choice of a freshly prepared special of the day as well as eggs etc. any way you want. The rooms are excellent with lovely antiques and very comfortable mattresses. The attention to detail in the amenities and service is top notch with wine and cheese at cocktail time and cookies throughout the day and evening. The staff are superb and the owners terrific. One of the staff even helped me fix a cell phone problem - now that's service! I would challenge anyone to find a better B&B in any place.

Have stayed in many B&B's and the Westcott House, by far, has been the best. No amenity has been overlooked and the whole experience was inviting, charming, and all with very comfortable beds! The perfect location from which to enjoy and access St. Augustine. Breakfast is a true delight ; what you want and when you want it! The staff and owners are first rate in terms of being professional, friendly and truly hospitable.

Room Tip: There's not a bad room but you may want to request the main house for the most charm.
