If you love beautiful old homes (100 years is old by American standards,) with modern amenities, great hospitality and mouth-watering breakfasts then Dickens House is a must. The lovingly restored 1912 Craftsman-style, 3 story home is like taking a journey back in time. All the beautiful architectural details have been preserved keeping that warm homey feel - yet the bathrooms are beautifully updated and the beds are comfortable with plush pillows and nice linens. The location is extremely convenient. It is a 5-minute walk to restaurants, shops, a lovely park and the museums. Owner Ed Caldwell is warm and accommodating and an extremely knowledgeable host (particularly about St. Petersburg history). My partner and I stayed during Christmas weekend and now we'd like to return in Summer to explore the beautiful beaches the area has to offer. We look forward to enjoying Ed's company again and savor those amazing breakfasts that made us post pictures on facebook every time. : )

We liked our stay in the Dikkens House very much. The rooms are very comfortable, beautifully styled and decorated, and everything is just perfect to the very detail. We also felt looked after very well. Arriving late we could use a code to enter on ourselves, found a map ready for us with nearby restaurant suggestions, and next morning: a gorgeous breakfast. Ed was a great host and we enjoyed the conversation very much! [Kees & Hilly van de Wiele from the Netherlands]

Room Tip: Each room is an experience

I stayed at this B&B while visiting a cousin who lives nearby. The place lived up to its reputation in every respect. Ed is a great host. I happened to be there for the city's tour of heritage homes of which this is one. Ed and his sister Jane hosted dozens of visitors very graciously.

Our stay at Dickens House lived up to all the positive reviews here on TripAdvisor. The careful attention taken to ensure an enjoyable and hassle-free guest experience was evident as soon as we arrived. Ed was helpful and friendly from the start. His feedback on attractions and dining was most helpful -- and much appreciated since we only had a short time to explore St. Pete. We stayed in the Perry Snell room (which is larger than it appears on the website). The bed was comfy. The breakfast was plentiful and tasty. The house is in tiptop shape, beautifully-appointed, clean, and equipped with Wi-Fi. Reserving with Dickens House is a good decision.

Room Tip: I am a light sleeper but I slept like a rock. There is carpeting over hardwood along the stairs and the hallways on guest floors. The House is in a quiet, residential neighborhood. Perry Snell overlooks the street but it was not at all noisy..
