“Excellent stay!”
Reviewed 24 April 2012

The Bayfront Westcott was one of the nicest experiences we have had in a B & B. The staff was very friendly and helpful and made us feel very welcome. We stayed in the Ponce de Leon room which was very spacious, cozy and quiet. The king size bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was very large with a beautiful shower and tub. Our breakfast was delicious and and social hour was quite lovely as we sat on the front porch viewing the water. I only wish we could have stayed longer.

We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and hope that, when you are no longer able to channel how wonderfully relaxed you felt with your bayfront seat, we will see you again!

We have stayed at a number of places during our short excursions to St. Augustine. This is now one of our favorites (the other top B&B is for sentimental reasons, we became engaged at that B&B). But of all the places we have stayed, this is definitely the best appointed. The furniture and antiques in the room create such a wonderful presence.
I have trouble sleeping in many beds, but this one was wonderful. We stayed in Emma's room, which although is on the first floor is still very private. It is at the end of the main floor balcony so there is no traffic in front of your room. There is an alley behind the house but that wasn't a problem.
The breakfast was wonderful a bacon Quiche (and generally I'm not a great fan of quiche), with a fresh croissant, (honey was also served, although not on the list of condiments, I wrote it in and voila), and lastly a very nice fruit cup.
Since we were going to be there only one night this time, we parked on the street in front of the Bayfront. The staff was considerate enough to feed the meter from the start of the day until we checked out. Then we were given a parking pass to use downtown for the rest of the day as we enjoyed St. Augustine.

This is our 3rd stay with Joy, Andrew and staff. Can't thank them enough for everything from the beautiful room (Catherine's Room is our fav) to the fabulous signature breakfast! The area is very quiet, lovely views and sightseeing in the historic district are but steps away from your room. Park your car and walk through St Augustine's historic area and find several great places to explore and eat. There isn't much that guest to this wonderful B&B and city won't enjoy!!!

Room Tip: The Carriage House has four very private quiet rooms with lovely balconies to relax on.

This was our first bed and breakfast experience and it was absolutely wonderful. With so many inns to choose from we definitely lucked out on choosing The Bayfront Westcott House. Excellent room, service, location and food. Will definitely be back!

This was the first time that I have ever stayed at a bed and breakfast and the experience was totally enjoyable. I could not have asked for anything better. The staff made us feel as though we were a part of the family.

Room Tip: If you do not mind stairs - the loft room is excellent and is probably one of the largest rooms.

I treated my mother to a trip to Saint Augustine for her 65th birthday and we stayed at the Bayfront Westcott House in the Esmeralda Room. The inn was beautifully kept, the view from the porches were magnificent, the rooms were clean, and the beds were very comfortable.

Jean greeted us upon arrival and made us feel instantly welcomed and at home. She offered great advice on local dining and attractions as well as provided us with everything we needed for our stay. In the morning, Angie, Kayla, and Isabel created the most delicious breakfasts. There was plenty of coffee, teas, and a relaxing social hour between 5-7pm each night when they served wine and cheese. Everyone at Westcott was very friendly, including the other guests.

In addition to the fantastic bay view, The Westcott is in walking distance to just about everything in historic Saint Augustine. We could walk to the Red Train stop to take a tour around the city and/or walk to the Castillo de San Marcos, the museums, shops, and St. George Street. Westcott's location is perfect for those who don't want to drive everywhere.

The Westcott's parking lot was about three blocks away, down Bridge street, but since we left the car there once parked, it didn't matter at all. The lot was nice and spacious and I felt very comfortable parking there (as opposed to parking on the narrow streets and feeding the meter all day). Lot parking was included with our stay.

We are looking forward to returning to The Bayfront Westcott House. They are 5 stars in service, location, comfort, and friendliness.

Room Tip: The Esmeralda room is close to the office and the neighbor's gazebo is right outside the window...
