“A dream getaway!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2011

I can't say enough praise about the Larelle House. Ellen and Larry are wonderful, warm hosts. The Victorian house is charming and quaint and furnished with gorgeous period furniture. All the amenities are here from off street parking, complimentary cookies and beverages, comfy robes in the rooms, use of bicycles, hot tub, and dvd players in your room. The front porch even has netting to save you from those pesky mosquitoes.
Ellen's breakfast is restaurant quality yummy with 3 courses! It is located in a perfect location, walking distance to museums shops and restaurants.
The place is immaculate and the beds are dreamy. We hated to see our stay end.
We celebrated our anniversary there and can't wait to return.

My Fiancee and I stayed at the Larelle House Bed & Breakfast in June while visiting family in the area. Larry was very accomodating to our needs during the stay. We were also able to enjoy the hot tub in the backyard at night and it truely added to our trip! We had a great time in St Petersburg and thank you again for your hospitality!

We found a wonderful value and at the same time a great stay during our recent trip to St. Petersburg. Didn't want all of the trappings and extra $$ at the Vinoy. Instead we opted for the Larelle House Bed & Breakfast. We read the reviews before booking our trip but every time you venture out to a new place you can't be certain. WE are certainly glad we did. The Larelle is a small B & B right down by the bayfront. It is wonderfully decorated from the sitting rooms and dining area downstairs to the rooms. There are only 4 rooms but you only need one. We stayed n the Lavinia Room, 4 poster bed, claw foot tub and shower, and beautifully decorated.

Sometimes folks will cut corners at breakfast time but not here. Larry outdid himself with a 3- course breakfast. The breakfast deserts to die for, blueberry cinamin coffee cake. The following morning was equally desirable.

The location is in close proximity to everything dowtown. We had tickets for the Rays and Red Sox game and walked to the park. We actually walked to everything we needed that weekend.

We enjoyed lunch at the 400 Beach Seafood & Tap House for some really great seafood. We also ventured down to the pier and ate at the Columbia Restaurant. Now you can go several places and get Columbia House food but not with the view we had. The dining area gives an excellent view of the bay. Wonderful to watch as you sip some authentic Spanish Sangria. The food was very good as was the service.

We totally enjoyed the restaurant and could have taken advantage of the bikes on the property or the hot tub but just didn't get it all in.

That's why the next time we are in St. Petersburg we will stay with Larry and Ellen at the Larelle House Bed & Breakfast!! Thanks Larry!!

My husband and I stayed at Larelle House for two nights in May. My husband was participating in a triathlon and we choose Larelle House because of its location and good reviews we read on Tripadvisor. This was our first stay at a B & B and we both LOVED it. Our hosts, Larry and Ellen Nist, were the perfect hosts. They are so friendly and welcomed us with a tour of the home, which is very nicely decorated, very clean, and so comfortable! They were very knowledgable about the downtown area and local businesses/ restaurants. They were very accomodating with the race schedule (there were several athletes staying there), even serving breakfast on the morning of the triathlon at 5:00 a.m. When we returned around noon from the race, they had prepared a champagne celebration for the athletes!!
There are three kitties who live there and are so sweet!! The backyard is comfortable and inviting -- such a nice place to sit and relax. Every room is nicely furnished and very comfortable. The yummy homemade cookies are always available in the dining room. The breakfasts are wonderful. Your bed is turned down at night -- very nice!! Everything about our stay was perfect and we could tell that Larry and Ellen worked very hard to make sure it was that way.

My husband and I spent the night at the Larelle House to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We had a wonderful time as we enjoyed the warm feel of the immaculate old home. We were pleased with our hosts because we always felt welcomed. It was a marvelous time and a return visit is in our future.
