There were three of us and we opted for separate rooms; each one was unique and had it's own wow factor. Our hosts made us feel like visiting family, we ate breakfast outside on the deck each morning, plenty of food to start our day. And late afternoon there was that lovely glass of wine with a few munchies before...

Stayed with my husband for our daughter's wedding in St. Augustine. We could not have been more pleased with the accommodations. We were in the Cambridge Room which is just off the porch were we had breakfast every morning. Fabulous food, wonderful owners. Will definitely stay there again on our next trip to St. Augustine. Close to everything, very quiet.

I stayed at the Penny Farthing Inn while in St Augustine for my God-daughter's wedding. I can't say enough wonderful things about this beautiful home, our amazing room in "Penny's Attic", and the family/owners who were some of the nicest people I have ever met! I just got back to Jacksonville today and I can't wait to return for another...

Penny Farthing Inn is a true gem found in the heart of St Augustine. You can easily walk to the Old Town where you will find art galleries galore, unique boutiques, and wonderful restaurants. The beach is just a short drive away. The Inn itself is well maintained yet has that historic flair. We stayed in Penny's Attic which had...

Optimal location in the historic district. Within walking of great art galleries, the fort, the museum, shops, and restaurants. The beaches are only 2.5 miles away - some of which are preserved and pristine and protected by the State Park system. The family who runs this inn is incredible - very accommodating but not intrusive, so friendly, interesting, and gracious....

We were in town for one night and were so happy with our stay at the Penny Farthing Inn. The tree house was perfect! Very quiet location in the heart of St Augustine! We will be back. The Inn was clean and had lots of character.

We spent one night on the way home from Naples, FL. The owners are delightful. The rooms are comfortable and lived the antiques. We enjoyed the wine and snacks in the afternoon and breakfast in the morning. The off street free parking g was a huge bonus. We will definitely stay there again.

We were so happy we found this gem! Nice ambience, great location in the walking distance from everything you want to visit in St.Augustine; tastefully decorated cosy room with a fireplace and some antiques. Very comfortable bed. Gourmet breakfast cooked fresh every morning and served in a beautiful room. In the afternoon you are treated with wine and little snacks....

We spent the weekend at this very warm and cozy B&B in downtown St. Augustine. It is located on a quiet side street with plenty of off-street parking. Just about everything you would want to explore in this historic enclave is within walking distance, including the Matanzas River, museums, 5-star restaurants, parks, ghost tours, trolley rides, and shops/boutiques. Marie and...
