“A warm, friendly feel in the heart of history ...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2012

I know when we return it will be more like visiting friends. There was a welcoming feel from the moment we booked until we drove away. The location could not be more perfect and sitting on our porch overlooking Charlotte Street we were struck by the onlookers walking by, taking pictures, obviously impressed with the appearance of the inn.

Though often looks can be deceiving, not this time. From the moment you step in the front door you feel surrounded by a much loved home with every possible extra effort made to make you feel comfortable. The inn is immaculate, lemonade and iced tea available at all times along with plenty of ice. There were delicious baked chocolate chip cookies in the living room and I wandered in there for more of those than I should have.

Rod prepared two of the most delicious breakfasts. His waffles were simply "to die for", crispy on the outside yet warm and moist inside with the most amazing (his own recipe) citrus syrup. They were able to serve all 16 of us in the lovely dining room, each of us sharing our own table for 2. Breakfasts were perfect and served with love.

We stayed in the Henry Flagler Suite which is a wonderful room with an amazing jacuzzi and really comfy bed, tons of pillows, one my personal favorite ... almost took it with me. Add to that the ambiance of a "fire" (electric, but so pretty) and it was pretty darned special.

The Inn sits right in the heart of the historic district which was great for me as I can't walk for a long time or long distances due to an old ankle injury. So we were able to walk around, enjoy the area, but return often to our wonderful cool, breezy porch where we could watch the envious passers by.

The Inn offers a time to gather with other guests from 5:00 to 6:00. We went down the first night and were sorry no one else showed up so we didn't go down on Sunday. Having seen photos of guests on the porch I thought this could be a fun time, but this was our only disappointment and it's certainly through no fault of the Inn's. They "built it" and nobody came that night ... no biggie.

Overall, just a wonderful way to unwind in wonderful St. Augustine for a couple of nights. We live in Florida, but this seemed like a trip to another land, like going back in time. I highly recommend a visit to St. Augustine and most especially a stay at the Inn on Charlotte.

Room Tip: The photos on the inn's website are true photos, not made to look any better or different than t...

We just stayed at the Inn on Charlotte in the Anna Marcotte's Hideaway room for two nights. Our stay was excellent! The room was perfect and even more beautiful in person. The room and bathroom was impeccably clean and the antique furniture was beautiful! The bed was very comfortable and the two-person shower was relaxing with multiple shower heads! We loved the location of the room behind the main inn, tucked away behind plants-It was very private and romantic! Also the location of the inn is perfect- right in the midst of the historic town! We enjoyed delicious gourmet breakfasts both mornings and a relaxing wine social in the evening. The owner, Rodney, is amazingly hospitable, helpful and accommodating-he made our stay very enjoyable!! We loved absolutely everything about our stay here and are planning to come back in the winter months!! I highly recommend this inn!!!

For my first visit to St. Augustine, my trip was made extra special by my experience at the Inn on Charlotte! We stayed in the very private Marjorie Rowlings room in the back bungalow and it was perfect! Very clean, incredibly comfortable bed, and we were served a lovely breakfast to our courtyard in the morning! Ann and Rod were wonderful and made our stay most enjoyable! We will certainly return again!

We are so happy to hear you say this, thank you. We are always happy to hear feedback on our beds, food, service, and rooms. But one night is just not enough to relax at Inn on Charlotte in beautiful St Augustine. That's just one dinner, one night, one sunrise, one breakfast... Nope, not long enough. You will just have to come back for a longer stay next time. Hope to see you again soon.

We stayed here only six months ago and I again look forward to returning. Rodney, the owner, has such southern hospitality and cooks like a healthy Paula Dean. His breakfasts are outstanding and yummy! We also very much enjoyed the social hour with the other guests that we got to know throughout the weekend. The restaurant two doors away was a great recommendation from Rodney (ask him for the name). The sauces were to die for! We will definitely be back for that southern charm and comfort at the Inn on Charlotte and Rodney!

How sweet, thank you. I love cooking for our friends! And if you saw what was in this stuff, you would take the 'healthy' out of your line... Ha. Just kidding. I do love me some Paula, so thank you; that comparison means a lot to me. Did I tell you my Aunt Etter knew Paula when she lived in Albany (All-Ban-ee) Georgia? I will have to tell you that story when you return.

This was our very first experience staying at a B and B so we weren't sure what to expect. But from the moment Rodney greeted us on Friday to saying goodbye to him and Jerry on Sunday, we felt that our stay was even better than being at home. The hospitality we were shown, the great location close to everything in St. Augustine(yet seemed so peacefully far away when we wanted it to be), the friendly travelers we met, and the breakfasts to die for, made our weekend getaway one we will always remember. We never even had to get in our car(free parking in a crowded downtown area) until we left for home.
Now, the dilemma. In our future travels, now sold on B and B's, will the search for the holy grail of trying to find an equally incredible establishment, leave us frustrated and disappointed at not being able to find such a place? Are we doomed before we even start? Is it possible that we could never match the pampered feeling we took home after spending the weekend at this Inn on Charlotte? Alas, I suspect that we are. But we are assured and comforted by the knowledge that whenever we visit St. Augustine in the future, we will not have to search for a place to call our own. The Inn on Charlotte can be our only choice.
This is the ONLY B&B to stay in St. Augustine. Travelers need look no further.

Room Tip: The Rawlings bungalow in the back, off the main house, is a tad small but the secludedness, quietnes...

That was so touching, thank you. You are so kind, and such a good writer. Jerry will be happy someone finally mentioned him in a review. (He's such a publicity hound) But fear not, our your travelers. Trust us, coming from years of B&B-ing, B&Bs large and small are an adventure. An adventure to be shared with your honey-bunny. So if its a great one like ours, or the horrible ones Jerry & have stayed at in the past, they all come with an adventure. And the adventure you both experiences together will live on in your storied and tails year after year. Your memories together are priceless. Go create more... and when you come back, we will tell you about some of ours....

My husband and I just got back a couple of hours ago. We were greeted by Rodney I loved his smile and how happy he seemed to see us ( like family). The room was great and we just loved how relaxing the atmosphere was. The breakfast WOW what can I say! We are from New Orleans and Love good food. Im still thinking about the Eggs Benedict Casserole. I would also like to thank Rodney for the wonderful dinner recommendation he gave us. The location of the Inn was also great, we were able to walk to The College, The Fort and unique stores. The only downfall was that the weekend came to an end. We will be back and are already speaking of some possible dates.
