Inn on Charlotte Street - St. Augustine, Florida - Hotel Review

Built in 1918, the Inn on Charlotte Street is located on a quiet, brick-lined street just steps from the bay front. Restored with a caring hand to reflect its original grandeur, and artfully decorated with antique furnishings and accessories, it offers a perfect bed and breakfast experience. Operating as a B&B since 1993, the inn is known for its southern hospitality as well as the culinary skills of its innkeeper and owner, Lynne Fairfield.

Breakfasts are leisurely in a stately dining room and feature creative morning meal dishes and fresh seasonal fruits. Later in the day, guests can request a handsome picnic hamper to bring along for a private sail, a biking expedition, a horseback trail ride, a carriage ride or a day at the beach. Welcoming baskets of chilled Champagne and chocolate-covered strawberries can be ordered in advance.

The inn has been the scene of small weddings, vow renewals and anniversary celebrations, which can be held in either the courtyard or formal parlor. Honeymooners are frequent guests and so are "babymooners"—expectant parents who want to share a romantic getaway before embarking on the rigors of parenthood.

The Inn's seven rooms and a carriage house bungalow pay tribute to some of St. Augustine 's celebrity residents, from James Audubon to Louis Comfort Tiffany. There's a large, shaded front porch where sipping some lemonade or complimentary wine is a fine way to pass an afternoon.
