Hemingway house Bed & Breakfast is a small, intimate, and exclusive home where every guest reservation is both important and special to us. Please read and understand our policies below before booking. And if there are still questions, feel free to email us.
We pride ourselves on offering the guests in our home the best accommodations in the perfect location. With years of experience with old houses, hospitality, our love of history, and everything St Augustine we truly love what we do and we love where we live. We have been successfully serving the traveling public to the nation's oldest city for years; but have roots in the area too.
After successfully turning around another bed and breakfast in St Augustine, The Inn on Charlotte, and making it one of St Augustine's best bed and Breakfasts, we had the opportunity to re-open the old ‘Whale's Tale' B&B. But don't think that the Hemingway House Bed and Breakfast is your parents' B and B. We are striving to make it fresh and unique within the North Florida B&B market.
Rod's family has always had a place on the St John's River, and after a day of boating/fishing on the river, the family would load-up and drive to St Augustine.
"Ever since I can remember I've been coming to St Augustine, walking up-and-down the old streets, seeing what there was to see, tasting what there was to taste; and never in my wildest dreams did I think I could one day live in the ancient city." - Rod
He designed Hemingway house bed and breakfast to be casual, but nice, relaxed, but complete, fun, but behaved. Like a through-back to his lazy days of summer, when his family spent their vacation in Florida.
"We hope that you too will feel the stress of everyday life melt away as you check in to our Inn." - Rod
To begin the stress relief, we give you free assigned parking. There will be no hunting for your parking spot at this bed and breakfast. (Those who have been to downtown St Augustine know just how special this amenity really is.) We send you directions, and restaurant suggestions you need to know before you arrive in St Augustine. The stress relief continues with a covered balcony that comes with your room, and a private self-contained bathroom, a wine social-hour, and did you read about our delicious breakfast?
