This was our 8th (I think) stay at the Bayfront Marin House & we intend to keep coming back!
We always stay in the Marie Antionette room because the view is spectacular on our private balcony overlooking the bay. I love to sit out there for HOURS with a book & watch the waves and people and horse carriages. Most times we even get to see Dolphins playing in the bay & hunting for fish! We also love being able to sit in the jacuzzi every night and then luxuriate in our beautiful room. Breakfast is always fresh and tasty and our favorite place to eat it is outside in the gazebo.
Mike & Sandy are the 2nd owners of the Inn since we started coming & their love of the place is obvious. We were concerned when we heard the Inn had been sold, but they have kept all the good things that were there & added to them. Every time we've been back since they've owned the Inn has been even better than the time before. Their attention to detail really shows and every improvement and upgrade makes our time there that much more luxurious. Every time we check in or out we are treated like family! Mike is on the property most of them time & is always nearby with his friendly smile & conversations. Mary, who also cooks the yummy breakfast, is endlessly entertaining and we look forward to her smile every time. Elizabeth & Tatiana take amazing care of every detail and are always so pleasant to see. We have only seen Brian the last couple of times we've been there, but it seems like he instantly fit in with the awesome staff & we look forward to seeing him again. We have already reserved "our room" for our Anniversary trip in May.

Room Tip: The Marie Antionette (2nd floor) & King George (1st floor) rooms have the best view of the bay.

Wonderful b&b! Friendly staff, clean rooms, romantic setting, beautifully decorated outside and rooms, beautiful location on the bayfront within walking distance to downtown, but not in the middle of the downtown bustling. A different hot breakfast provided each morning- always delicious! And happy hour each day had wine, beer, amazing homemade sangrias, and snacks. The staff went out of their way to make sure you had a great stay. Definitely will go back next time we visit st. Augustine.

My wife and I stayed at the Inn to celebrate our 3rd anniversary. If you are planning on visiting the beautiful historic beach town of St. Augustine then you would do well to consider the Bayfront Marin House Bed & Breakfast for your accommodations. From the moment we arrived till even after we checked out we enjoyed 5 star treatment by the owner and staff. The location is great and the B&B itself is "absolutely adorable" (wife's words). Early in the evening we enjoyed the selection of wines, beers, and home made ice-cream during the complementary happy hour, and the next morning we enjoyed a delicious breakfast. We can't wait to visit here again and can't recommend it enough.

We stayed at the Inn to celebrate my 40th birthday. Not only was the trip a surprise, so was the surprise waiting for me when two other couples met us there. Not only was it great to spend this special time with friends, it was great to have such wonderful accommodations. The Inn has a lot of history, character and charm. The room was extremely comfortable, clean and beautifully decorated. Happy hour was great. The snacks and drinks were fantastic. Breakfast was a highlight too. The menu was perfect, the food was delicious, and the services at the Inn were top notch. I don't think any of us wanted to leave and return to reality. Thank you to the entire staff for making my 40th birthday so memorable during this past Veteran's Day weekend.

Room Tip: Each room is unique. Pick a room that has the character you are looking for so that you completely comfortable.

My wife and I had another fantastic anniversary stay at the Bayfront Marin House. We loved Donna’s quiche and Mary’s banana pancakes for breakfast and, of course, the free beer and homemade desserts made happy hour a must-stop for me every evening! The entire inn is decked out in lights for the holidays and as usual the entire staff pampered us and made us feel like we were returning home. We can’t wait to come back next year!
