Wow!!! We just returned from a fantastic stay at the Bayfront Wescott. We could not ask for more! The service, attention to detail, warm personalities, perfection to detail and so much more was definitely received at this Bed & Breakfast! From the minute we arrived, Joy welcomed us, sat us down, offered us beverages, & gave us all the tips necessary to LOVE this city!!! The B & B was perfect....the hospitality, rooms, location, and so much more will DEFINITELY make us return. We felt "at home" from the minute we arrived! Joy's suggestions on EVERYTHING were right on!!! We couldn't believe the final touch each evening...warm cookies upon entry after a long day's adventure!

We loved the Bayfront Westcott House from the minute Joy met us at the front door. She was very welcoming and made us feel at home immediately. She spent the time to cover information about St. Augustine and to make sure we had our plans for our trip covered. She went out of her way to get us a parking spot behind the B&B. We stayed in the Abigail's room which is located at the back of the B&B. It was decorated in a lovely light purple color with antique furnishings. The bathroom had a jacuzzi and two person shower. I am a very light sleeper and this room was so quiet I could not believe we were so close to town. Our breakfasts were outstanding. The outdoor seating areas gave everyone options to decide how they wanted to enjoy the setting. We chose to sit on the side patio each morning so we could enjoy the bay along with breakfast. We were asked to chose our breakfast prefrences the night before which gave us more options up front and made for a nice smooth service. The happy hour was also a great time to visit with other guests and find out ideas of where to go and what to see. They served great appetizers and your beverage of choice. I highly recommend the Bayfront Westcott House.

The view from the front porch to the beautifully appointed room, we totally enjoyed our stay at the Westcott House. We were greeted by Joy and her staff the moment we arrived with a cool drink and a homemade cookie. Check-in was warm and personal. Walking to our room the first time we felt as if we had already made friends. Each morning, we sat on the side-porch and enjoyed a gourmet breakfast as we watched the sailboats on the bay and the swaying palm trees. We were able to walk to all the restaurants and tourist spots , but when we returned to our room each night, it was quiet and peaceful. We will surely stay at the Westcott House on our next trip to St. Augustine

Room Tip: We stayed in the Ponce de Leon room. King bed, table, chairs and gas fireplace. Large jacuzzie tub.

My gf surprised me for my birthday with a trip to Saint Augustine and a stay at this B&B. We are in our late 20s/early 30s and are well-traveled individuals, so when we say that this place was in the top 3 hotel/b&bs that we have ever stayed at in the world, so its safe to say we have done our research.

First the building, very quaint and in a great location--right across from the bay with a nice view of the lighthouse. The inside is very well kept and decorated to feel very homely, yet elegant. My gf called ahead and got the birthday package for our room (photos included). Very tasteful, with balloons, breakfast in bed, "happy birthday" sign and two of the most delicious homemade cupcakes ever (red velvet with a creamcheese frosting), as well as a gift certificate for a restaurant for dinner (we chose Collage and it was excellent)! Besides the birthday decor, the room was gorgeous. A merlot color with wood features made the room feel very cozy. An electric fireplace to give you a romantic feel, four-post bed, small couch made the room someplace we never wanted to leave. The bathroom was simple, but a good size with a good size hot-tub which was needed after all the walking we did. Oh and the second floor balcony with swings, was wonderfully romantic as well.

Staff was friendly, well-mannered and made you feel right at home. Never made us feel that any request/question was bothersome or unattainable. (We even chit-chatted with the owners about our fondness of MGBs.)

Food, my gf and I enjoyed the BEST French toast either of us had ever had one morning, along with fresh fruit, coffee, danish and other wonderful things. A quiche breakfast on our second day was equally as good and we enjoyed it on the outside porch watchin the sun rise. The evening cocktails/hors d'oeuvres were nice and lite. A variety of wine, some beer and different kinds of crackers and toppings hit the spot.

I could go on and on about our stay and the hotel. We have already suggested this B&B to our family and some friends looking to getaway for a quick vacation. Feel free to "message me" if you have any questions, as I would be happy to give other advice/info.

Room Tip: Wish I could remember the name of the room, but I can tell you its in the mainhouse, second floor on the back-right-side of the hallway. We took a peak into the other rooms on this floor as well and still found our room to be the best.

We stayed 3 nights at westcott B & B... Wow!!!!!!! I don't have the words to describe my experience.... All I can say is WOW!!!! As a business owner I can honestly say that this place are on point in every detail. We were celebrating our 10 years anniversary, they made our stay very romantic and super relaxing. We had the package with the horse carriage, flowers, chocolate cover strawberries, champagne, breakfast in bed, we also added the sun set sail boat, the beach package... When you mention make it romantic, This people really think of everything to make it super special!! Everyone was super friendly and nice... Even the other guest staying there were super friendly and sociable! I really had a GREAT time, I will definetly come back. If you are looking for a romantic stay in a very relaxing lay back area this is the place you need to stay!
Thank you Westcott Bayfront for making our stay the BEST one of all!!
