    First B&B stay

    This was our first experience staying in a Bed and Breakfast and we loved it. We stayed in the attic room and it was so lovely. The room had everything you needed and it had so many charming details. We especially loved our little porch looking out over the rooftops and we were lucky enough to be in town for a rocket launch, which was amazing to see from our porch. The breakfast was delicious and my only disappointment was that we didn't get to try this eggs Benedict (my favorite food!) that everyone in the comments has been raving about. It just gives us an excuse to come back in the future. One note about the room - if you are a very tall person you may want to choose another room than the attic due to slanted walls in the shower.

    Cute - and cozy!

    This was the perfect location for a mother daughter birthday celebration. It was cute, clean, quiet, and offered delicious breakfast and a wine and cheese hour in the evenings. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely be returning!

    A great place to stay!

    Our only regret is that we were unable to stay more than one night. We’ll just have to come back! Beautiful Inn, we highly recommend it. Very clean, comfortable and within walking distance to many sites and restaurants.

    WHAT A GREAT B&B!

    We had an extremely comfortable stay at the Penny Farthing Inn! The staff were all extremely friendly and accommodating...especially Ms. Clair! The room was clean and comfortable. The location of the Inn was very close to the center of St. Augustine. Their on-site parking was very convenient. Their morning breakfast and afternoon happy hour were superb! I would definitely stay at this property again, and encourage my friends to do the same! Well done! Gary and Rosemarie

    Balcony with Rocking Chairs was a hit!

    We loved Penny Farthing Inn. Our favorite thing was sitting in the rocking chairs on our beautiful private balcony overlooking the small quiet street across from dorms at Flagler College. The room was very clean, bed was comfortable, breakfast was great, service was wonderful. Great location, too. It was a quick and easy walk anywhere you wanted to go.
