The Inn celebrates the luxury of privacy but offers ample social opportunities to those wishing for such. Guests enjoy exclusive local deals and stellar concierge service.

    Westcott House, located on St Augustine’s bayfront (just south of the marina), was built in 1880 as a private residence for Dr. John Westcott who was well known for his prominent military career, interests in transportation and politics, and research efforts in the cause and cure of yellow fever. He was a land surveyor for the St. Johns Railroad (whose tracks spread from the San Sebastian River to Tocoi) and was a heavy hitter in the development of the Intracoastal Waterway that links the St. Johns River to Miami. The house changed hands a few times over the years and saw its fair share of soirées amongst St. Augustine's elite. In the 1970s, it was converted into a guest house and has been entertaining tourists and travelers ever since.

    My wife and I stayed 1/2-3/16 for our first anniversary. A beautiful location on the bay, we were impressed with the rooms as well as the location. The staff was top notch, a loving and caring group led by Joy the owner. Ryan was spectacular in making us welcome, and taking care of any need when we arrived. I can't wait to return, as had many guests we met. The breakfast was superb.
