The Old Powder House Inn stands on a property that had been the site of a gunpowder storage building used by the Spanish soldiers. The "new" building has been a bed and breakfast for more than 200 years and is still in the heart of St. Augustine's Historic Downtown. This Victorian-style bed and breakfast on Cordova Street is nestled among mature pecan and oak trees, which provide shade for guests while they relax on the wide verandas, courtyards, and gardens.


The Old Powder House Inn offers elegant accommodations, ideal for couples looking for a romantic retreat, anyone here to celebrate an occasion, and anyone who wants to enjoy the Old World atmosphere of the nation's oldest city. The inn boasts nine spacious guest rooms, each decorated with a different theme, such as Queen Ann's Lace, Enchanted Hideaway, Serenity, and the Garden. Some have beautiful views of the gardens and the surrounding historic downtown area, and all rooms have televisions and wireless internet connections, and all come complete with a private bath. Free parking is available for all guests. Beverages and homemade cookies are always available in the comfortable parlor.
