“AWESOME,DIDN'T WANT TO LEAVE”
Reviewed 13 April 2012

What a wonderful piece of heaven on a beautiful beach. The staff goes above and beyond to please.
It was so nice to venture down and have a very tasty breakfast, the lunches you choose from are great and dinner, you can't go wrong with anything served at Beach Walk Cafe, it's all delicious.
Happy hour, well, it is so much fun, it's worth finding the time to mingle and enjoy. Then, there's all the other extras, that make Henderson Park Inn a special place.
We stayed on the second floor in the building next to the main building, our room was very nice and spacious, as well, as our balcony.
We had the most relaxing vacation and had the pleasure of meeting some very nice people. We all shared the same opinion, we love this place. It's a hidden gem and we can't wait to return.

We stayed at the Henderson for 4 nights. It was the most enjoyable, peaceful place I have been. The rooms were out of a magazine. The private beach was spectacular. Breakfast was something to look forward to each morning, with such a variety it was hard to choose. As for the Henderson staff, they made us feel as if we were VERY important people. They were right on top of everything and went above and beyond to serve us. I have NEVER had this kind of service. We were amazed! We even made some friendships. The only drawback is that now I will compare others to the Henderson.....It would be tough to beat!

Room Tip: The corner suites and best as far as view. But the second flood of the newer building was spectacula...

On the beach, no screaming kids, great restaurant, just a mile from shopping, movies etc.
Rooms in the annex were big and quiet. Will return

This is a very pricey hotel stay for the amenities and condition of this B &B. The exterior and portions of the interior need a complete overhaul. There was no hot water for our showers. The honey baked ham store box lunch is a nice touch but beware... You do not get a boxed lunch on the day you check in or check out. I was led to believe 4 meals were included with my $750 2 night off season stay. There are lots of snacks and sodas but no healthy snacks were available hence this amenity was useless for us. I recommend finding a Cheaper alternative or a different beach vacation spot all together where you get 4 star amenities for 4 star prices. BTW if it is cold and rainy in Destin there is absolutely nothing to do.

The staff was welcoming, the food delicious and the room comfy. It was wonderful being able to open our balcony doors to hear the ocean anytime we wanted. It was a few steps to the beach and the beach chairs and umbrellas were provided. As an adult only property it was nice and quiet at the end of the street :)
We will definitely go back again!

Room Tip: We were in the king room on the end - room 111.

Loved this place. I was on my way home, and enjoyed one night (on my own). Will definitely return with hubby; every little detail was thought of. Flowers, wine, candy, gorgeous views, amazing breakfast, beautiful room. My best memory is of soaking in the hot tub with the window open to hear the gulf against the shore. Just perfect.
An only negative may be it has the charm of an old inn, but the stairwells were very narrow (try carrying up a large suitcase!) and I don't think there was an elevator. Didn't bother me, but you may want to ask about the room you book to be sure you can maneuver.

Room Tip: Don't be afraid to ask for one night. It is expensive, but one night is still worth it, if that...

Great little inn. We had a lovely room with balcony directly facing the gulf. And all of the amenities made it so great.....breakfast, box lunches, bottle of wine at check in, happy hour daily, bicycles, beach chairs/towels. Location next to a state park made the beach quiet, even during spring break week. Staff were all friendly and gracious. Lovely place....hate to share it.
