“The highlight of our "road-trip!"”
Reviewed 30 November 2013

Henderson Park Inn "drew" us in for our 25th wedding anniversary, by offering the only all inclusive service that we could find in this area of the U.S. We were hooked the moment we pulled in the parking lot. Such a welcoming sight after our 9 hour journey to get there. Lovely front porch, exceptional front desk staff. I think it was Tammy, who checked us in, and could not have been any more accommodating! She was top notch! Arrived early, were able to check in and get the relaxing and spoiling started. We were greeted with flowers, champagne, grapes and soft music all waiting for us in our room. Our room was in the 2nd building, third floor. Ocean front. Could not have been nicer. We enjoyed the breakfast each of the three mornings we got to stay here. It was exceptional! We also had dinner one night at the Inn and have to say, that our meal was some of the best food we have ever had!! We left after three days and continued on our journey of the gulf coast, however noting came even close to the time we had at Henderson Park Inn. Can't say enough good things about this Inn.

Again my wife and I did dinner at the Henderson Park Inn. We have done her birthday in Destin for a number of years and have always dined at the Inn. Great food and service. The sunset off the porch is still beautiful as ever. There is a reason their ratings are so high.

Room Tip: We just did dinner as the Inn itself was full and had no accomodations for us

My husband and I visited the Henderson Park Inn to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary! It was everything and more then we expected!
From the moment we arrived to the day of our departure, we could not have asked for friendlier, more accommodating and first class service than the Henderson Park Inn!
Natalie, Heather, Tammy, Melissa, Dustin, Chef Greg and Allen were all so wonderful!
We stayed in the corner suite in the newer building 2nd floor which was perfect!!
Breakfast was wonderful ! Anything you could want.... Delicious lunch, and a great happy hour!! The best part was, its all inclusive in your stay!!
We had dinner at the Beach Walk Cafe gourmet restaurant all 4 nights of our stay. Very romantic and the food is amazing! We did not want to try anywhere else, it was that delicious! The Grouper Vince was fabulous!!
The only downside was our weather was not that nice ..pretty chilly and windy, not beach weather unfortunately.. but we had a great time anyway! We cannot wait to return when we can enjoy the beautiful beach, Gulf waters and all the amenities that they offer.... We could not have asked for a better vacation!

Room Tip: The newer building has an elevator if your on the 2nd or 3rd floor... The corner suite room 209 was...

We have stayed at the Henderson Park Inn 4 to 6 days each of the last five years. We love the place. The staff, Breakfast, and the Beach Walk restaurant are unequaled. The site and natural beauty are really special.

However, almost nothing has been done to maintain the facilities in first class condition. Exterior and interior are in serious need of a major facelift. As a minimum the baths need to be updated. The old fake marble factory made whirlpool tubs are a health and safety hazard, especially for matures. Very little traction on the tub bottoms. Also a real liability to the owners.

Having said this we will probably be here again next year. Staff, keep up the good work. We love you.

We had a wonderful time at this adults only bed and breakfast. Everyone was extremely nice and so helpful. It was kind of pricey but with the beach view the inclusive breakfast, which was delicious, lunch,happy hour and snacks,movies included you can't complain. I will say that our lunch order was wrong a couple of times but everyone was very eager to correct any issues. No where is perfect but this place is close. TV was a little small but whose watching tv with amazing views of the beach just beautiful. We will definitely come again when it's warmer. Thank you Henderson for a relaxing time

This place is very romantic, it is nicely isolated by all the touristy spots. I don't recommend staying here with kids, it's more of a couple's retreat. The food was amazing and the service was fantastic.
