On my first trip to St. Petersburg, Florida I had the pleasure of staying at The Dickens House B&B. Ed Caldwell, the owner, proved to be a gracious and extremely helpful host as his attention to detail made our visit extra special. Our room fridge was always stocked with juice and water(included in the cost), the room was very comfortable and attended to with clean towels and sheets. The breakfast provided was always fresh and well prepared. But the part I enjoyed the most was the interaction with the other guests at the table which was encouraged by the atmosphere Ed so expertly creates. I highly recommend staying with Ed on your next visit to St. Pete's.
