WRITE THE STORY OF YOU, HERE
While Ernest never stayed here, (actually, he preferred Marine Land
just south of here) we named the Inn after our favorite author. And who knows, the nation's oldest city just might bring out the writer in you. Okay, it’s not Paris but, the city has its charms and many people have told their story here, or wrote their very own story and brought it to us. For instance, while you read more about Hemingway House B&B you will learn that all of our 6 rooms are:
- adult Only and Double occupancy: 2 adults per room only
- on the second-floor ~ and feature a covered balcony
- has new, modern private bath room
- has one (1) complementary assigned parking space (all rooms (but one) park right on-site)
- and a comfortable Queen or King bed
...But what you might not know is, a friend of the owners wrote the room descriptions on a dare. That's a fun story, and the descriptions
are very well written, too! And it's true, we begin each evening with a casual wine social-hour
that give guests time to meet the owners and their fellow guests. Do you know how many stories of Hemingway, or topics about him, are told each night? Let me tell you the one about Rodger Shadow
and the Hemingway House B&B. We recently published his book that Roger wrote back in 1958, about the time, when in Havana Cuba, that he spent his WEEKEND AT HEMINGWAY'S
. (see the book by using the link) This book holds great insight to the famous author, the legend, the man, and the people he knew.
Come on! Others have written the story of their life at the Hemingway House, so why can't you?
LOCATED IN THE HEART OF LIVELY ST. AUGUSTINE
This delightful neighborhood in the heart of downtown St. Augustine by day features brick lined streets, vine-covered courtyards and friendly restaurants and shops, where long-time residents sit behind the counters selling interesting and unique goods. But by night fall, this area in downtown St. Augustine features your choice of music from the many venues along Charlotte St. From Jazz at Stogies
, to traditional Irish music at Meehan’s Pub
, to folk/country/rock at the historic Tradewinds Lounge
; to cool vibe of the Tini Martini Bar
, to the cutest little cigar bar in St. Augustine: Isabela's Bar Cuba
, all are on or near our festive little street. Whatever you might like, you'll relish the exceptional flavors of this charming European-style old-world village, unlike any other place in the States.
*Please note that both Martha Gellhorn & Mary Welch rooms face Charlotte Street, and thus guests might, mainly on weekends, hear more of the street's liveliness, than in the other rooms.
