Originally built in the 1790s, this stately, two-story town home that sits across from Matanzas River has undergone a number of iterations, emerging today as a friendly and inviting four pearl, 15-room bed and breakfast. Individually decorated rooms, each named after a historical figure or location in town, have private entrances; most have double whirlpool tubs, and many have electric fireplaces. Rooms mix antique furnishings with modern amenities like flat-screen TVs, smartphone docking stations, recessed lighting, and free Wi-Fi. St. Augustine’s historic sights and quaint streets, with museums, art galleries, shops, and restaurants, are a 10-minute walk inland. Bayfront serves a full Southern breakfast, with such entrees as banana pancakes and bacon stratas, and hosts an early evening happy hour with homemade appetizers and sangria, wine, beer, and later, sweets.
