You will be most surprised when you stay at the Bayfront Marin House Bed & Breakfast. It is under new ownership and the new owner is wonderful.Some of the wonderful things we enjoyed during our stay. The people who work there are amazing, friendly, loving and very accomodating. We loved how we could choose every morning where we wanted to eat and what time. Most Bed and Breakfasts have one time and a central location and often people shy away from B&B"s because of that. Our room was large and beautifully decorated. We stayed in the Lyndsay Michelle it is actually 2 rooms. Every room has a jacuzzi tub and flat screen tv, wireless wi-fi another wow. They also serve appetizer snacks and wine,beer and sangria at 5pm. All this included with your room rate. October is a fantastic month to visit St Augustine. The weather is great and the rates are lower.....Don't miss this B& B....We will be back...

My fiancee and I could not have been more pleased with the delightful and beautiful rooms, the delicious breakfast, the happy hour which was more than generous and where we made new lifelong friends, the beautiful view, wraparound porch and most of all the friendly service. Mike and Sandy the new owners have a gem in Donna, one of the managers who couldn't do enough to make our stay comfortable and to make us all feel at home. Elsebeth, on the morning staff was so friendly and couldn't help but give us a hug whenever we said something complimentary and the rest of the staff could not have been more friendly. We live in South Florida and meet often with our good friends from Charleston - guess where we'll be staying again - we all loved it.

My husband and I enjoyed two nights of our honeymoon in this gorgeous inn. I have stayed in some of the best, most expensive inns on the East Coast, but this topped them all. The caring, kind and very friendly staff waited on us hand and foot. They made us feel extra special and very welcome. Our bountiful breakfasts on the terrace overlooking the intercoastal were lovely! Our room was decorated impeccably with stunning antiques but was still cozy and made us feel relaxed and peaceful. I give them the highest rating as an inn!

We attended a mid-week wedding. This incredible staff accomodated our every need from reservation making to checkout time. The breakfast was fantastic and the hot chocolate heavenly...the best! The pillow top mattress made rest and sleep delightful and refreshing. The staff is five star!! They make each guest feel special and treat people as their private guests. Parking is a premium in this city....however, the staff works hard to aid guests. Totally enjoyed our stay. Located right across from the bay and within walking distance of the old city. Thanks for a wonderul stay!!!

Top to bottom this b & b is the one! It's a great location, right across from the bay. It's very quaint, mom and pop - ish. We stayed in the back room (with no view) and couldn't have been happier - it was private and romantic. The breakfast in the morning was fun, tasty, served right on time. The servers were very warm and friendly. The room was decorated so cure, and the jacuzzi tub was HUGE! It's walking distance to so much and right across from the trolly ride - so we could get anywhere without our car. A+

Our stay at the Bayfront Marin House Bed and Breakfast Inn was fantastic! Not only did we feel immediately welcome, but our room was breath-taking. We stayed in the Marie Antoinette room, and we enjoyed our private balcony area overlooking the bay. Our first night there, my boyfriend proposed to me. The staff at Bayfront Marin House were so kind and congratulated us. We wanted to go to our for dinner, and the staff recommended a delicious romantic restaurant and even loaned us umbrellas since it was raining. The breakfast each morning was beyond delicious, and the sangria in the evenings was divine. I would highly recommend this bed and breakfast!
