I would highly recommend staying at the inn, the staff is very helpful, as well as the place being right out of a movie. The rooms are spacious very clean, with great amenities. I would NOT eat at the restaurant the food is not up to par, it is very overprice for what you get. But the daily breakfast by the chef Greg is out of this world amazing. Overall I would recommend this place to family and friends.

Room Tip: I really enjoyed the honeymoon suite.

We LOVED Henderson Park Inn. The staff was extremely helpful and pleasant. We ate at Beach Walk, the onsite restaurant, our first night in Destin and it was perfect. The food was excellent and the view of the sun setting over the Gulf was beautiful. I can't say enough about the great staff. Tammee gave us some great tips about local favorite restaurants but Beach Walk was by far the best! We also received a free ticket for one spot on the Seablaster Sunset Dolphin Cruise. It was a lovely way to see the coastline and even a few dolphins! The room was clean and comfortable and we enjoyed falling asleep to the sound of the ocean. The Inn was quiet and relaxed and we really enjoyed our stay here. We hope to come back very soon!

My husband and I drove from Texas to stay at Henderson Park Inn. I found it on the internet and splurged with an Executive Suite. Cannot say enough about how great it was! Omelets in the morning...boxed lunch in the afternoon...cocktails on the deck at 5:00 and we brought our own wine and cheese for the evenings on the balcony. So peaceful and restful. Thanks Henderson Park Inn for one of the best vacations ever!!!

The Henderson Park Inn lives up to its reputation. There's lots of attention to detail, and the staff was fantastic and friendly. The breakfasts were cooked to order and delicious. There's no substitute for the view since the Inn sits on the beach and borders a one-mile stretch of untouched beach. Bottled water, soft drinks, snacks, and even lunch is provided. The only disappointment is that they do not recycle their bottles or aluminum cans, and with 35 rooms that stay booked, that adds up to a lot of recyclable material ending up in a landfil.

Room Tip: save $$ by getting a room looking down the beach

We have stayed with Henderson Park Inn at least 5 times in the past few years and it just gets better every time. The staff are all about your comfort and are pleasant, helpful and so friendly. The rooms are fantastic, the bedding, the towels and the view are all awesome. They do a great beach service and a "free happy hour" each day. This is a B & B so breakfast is included and is fantastic. Made to order omelets, waffles, eggs, with grits, fresh fruit and lot's more. They offer a "free" box lunch for the beach, if you are ready to eat again. Then they have an awesome restaurant when you are ready for dinner. There are free soda's and snacks on site. You never have to leave the property! The beach in front of the property is private and this is an adults only B & B, so it is quiet and relaxing. Sleep with your patio door open and enjoy the sound of the ocean (and the views). Can not say enough about this place; no way will you be sorry, it is so worth every penny. The only negative is that you will not want to leave. Check out their web site to see all of their amenities.

Love this place! Everything needed for the perfect romantic getaway except a partner; that is for you to supply. Perfect sunsets, fantastic breakfasts, excellent staff, picnic lunches made to order, and the best happy hour in town. We love the Tim Creeley restaurant downstairs and they have the best venison I've ever eaten!
I've given poor marks for sleep quality and that was because we booked last minute and the only available room was above the kitchen, but I was warned about this prior to booking the room.
