Being part of the hotel industry my entire career, I appreciate chains/brands but really value the independent. We considered B&Bs from Jacksonville Beach to St. Augustine and south, and decided the August Seven was a one of a kind property. Located near the Halifax River and a few blocks from Daytona Beach, this is a beautifully restored inn with great personality.
The host is a quiet spoken individual who respects his guests, yet exhibits pride not often seen. He takes you on a brief tour of the inn, sharing insights, architecture and more details about the experience. Parking is free and they even offer complimentary bus passes, which will be appreciated in season when parking is hard to find.
This is a small inn and there is significance to the use of numbers (as in August Seven or Room 623) as they relate to life events. Each room has its own guest review and the details that guests leave is remarkable. Ask the staff a question and their stories are fascinating.
We encourage visitors who are looking for a different type of inn to try this B&B. The breakfast is a bit unusual, but well presented in a dining room of this mansion type inn.More
