Bayfront Westcott House Bed & Breakfast

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 July 2014

We recently stayed at the Bayfront Westcott for two nights in the Abigail suite, and had an enjoyable, relaxing stay. Someone was there to greet us upon arrival, checked us in efficiently, and helped us unload the car and take our bags to the room. The property overlooks the bay, is well maintained, and the staff is friendly and accommodating. Since we arrived on a Monday we enjoyed listening to a guest speaker talk about the history of St. Augustine during a hospitality hour which opened opportunities to talk with other guests. Definitely we would stay there again on a return trip.

Room Tip: The description and photos of each room on the website adequately describe the rooms.

My husband and I stayed at the Bayfront Westcott House in St. Augustine for our 10th Anniversary. We love staying at Bed and Breakfasts, and what attracted us to this one was the view of the Matanzas Bay directly across the street. We chose to stay in Alison's Loft, which is the room on the top floor. First of all, we were welcomed right in and made to feel at home. The B and B has a laid back atmosphere, and is clean, bright, and warm. It was the house of a family years ago and has been maintained beautifully and kept to it's historic charm. Our room was spacious and comfortable, with a nice in room tub. They served Happy Hour to their guests which included an array of good cheeses, crackers, dips and wine. We enjoyed our afternoon watching the typical Florida summer thunderstorm roll past as we sat out on the front covered balcony overlooking the Matanzas Bay. As usual, the storm passed within the hour and we were free to walk around town again. They set out dessert for us to enjoy when we returned from our evening walk and dinner in Old Town St. Augustine. Our room was awesome-we had the top floor to ourselves. The breakfast was delicious and perfectly balanced, and was served to us by the friendly owner herself. I'd highly recommend this place to anyone. It was exactly as I'd expect a bed and breakfast to be, with people mingling on the porches totally relaxed and enjoying themselves, and we were rejuvinated.

We recently stayed at the Wescott for 3 nights in the Anastasia suite. My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary and thought we would venture out into the Bed and Breakfast world. I was definitely nervous prior to arrival but as soon as we walked in the door, I was completely amazed! We were greeted by Zoey as she offered us a drink and we sat down at a table. She brought us our drinks and key as well as a map of the area with a few coupons for local eateries. Zoey also explained how to get everywhere that we were wanting to go and gave us a few tips as well. When we walked into our room I felt an immediate sense of relaxation. The breakfast every morning was absolutely delicious and left us full until late afternoon. The bedding is wonderful and allowed for a great nights sleep each night. The anastasia room was very quiet and private. I cannot wait to go back!!

Room Tip: Anastasia room is in the main house on 2nd floor and very private!

We stayed at the Westcott previously, on our 25th wedding anniversary and totally enjoyed the beautiful home. The hospitality is outstanding! Every time we entered the home, someone was there to offer us a selection of cold drinks and a cookie! It was such a wonderful experience, my husband surprised me by returning to celebrate my "big" birthday. We were pampered like a king and queen and look forward to returning again.

Room Tip: Get a room with a view. We love the second floor.

I am sorry I am delayed in getting this review out there from our April 5 night stay. We had two rooms, two couples and our visit could not have been better (well other than the weather we hit), but I am sure if the Westcott staff could do something about that they would too. Our rooms were beautiful and clean, service excellent, and breakfasts yummy. Sitting on the porches and the view are definately relaxing, and easy to get to everything. We have been to St. Augustine a number of times but this was our first stay here, and we will definately be back.

Thanks to all of you for making our vacation so great. The Sheffields

Bayfront Westcott House is a terrific place to stay while you're in St. Augustine. The staff are quick to please, and our party of six never wanted for a thing. The rooms are very comfortable, and come with all the nice things that you would expect in a luxury hotel. The breakfasts are exquisite, and the Happy Hour is a great way to relax, or to meet fellow travelers. This was our second stay, and it won't be our last.

Room Tip: Call when you're about 10 minutes away, and they'll be waiting for you with a nice glass of...

My husband and I spent two really enjoyable nights at the Bayfront Westcott House and were so impressed. We stayed in the Elizabeth Room and it was fresh, updated and extremely comfortable. The bathroom was small but functioned perfectly and the shower was brand new and lovely! Super comfy beds, yummy breakfasts and a view from the two porches that would inspire even the most scheduled visitor to put down the guide books and relax. I would be remiss if I didn't say that one of the very best parts of our visit was the service. From the owners to the housekeepers, everyone went out of their way to be warm, helpful and welcoming. We never sat down on the property without someone offering us a refreshment, or asking us if there was anything they could do to enhance our stay. I ended up needing an eye doctor while we were in St. Augustine and Joy not only provided me with a contact name and phone number, but made a point to follow up with me later to see how I was doing. We would highly recommend the Bayfront Westcott to anyone wanting to enjoy downtown St. Augustine!
