Write Your Story 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 hereā€”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 each of our 6 rooms are:
  • Double occupancy, 2 adults per room, and some rooms accommodate 4 Guest with double Queen beds
  • All rooms  on the second-floor ~ so each have a covered balcony
  • Equipped with a new, modern, private, bathroom
  • All rooms come with free complementary parking 
  • And best of all, a comfortable Queen or King bed

...But what you might not know is, that a friend of the previous owners wrote the room descriptions on a dare. That's a fun story, and the descriptions are very well written and informative too!  Do you know how many stories or topics of Hemingway are discussed each night? Let me tell you one about Rodger Shadow and the Hemingway House B&B. The previous owner published a book that Roger wrote back in 1958 about the time, when in Havana Cuba, that he (Roger) spent the WEEKEND AT HEMINGWAY'S. This book holds great insight into 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?

In the Heart of Lively St. Augustine

By day, this delightful neighborhood in the heart of downtown St. Augustine 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 nightfall, this area in downtown St. Augustine features an assortment of music within the many venues along Charlotte Street. You'll find jazz at Stogies, traditional Irish music at Meehan's Pub, and folk/country/rock at the historic Tradewinds Lounge. You might also enjoy the cool vibe of the Tini Martini Bar, or perhaps the cutest little cigar bar in St. Augustine: Isabela's Bar Cuba. All of these venues 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.
