I came alone for a week and saw snowbird friends of mine during the days. The innkeeper sisters were friendly and willing to help me with my every need. Their attitudes and values were great. The breakfasts were wonderful. My room and bathroom were spacious, charming, and very clean. The other guests were nice. I totally recommend the Anchor Inn.

I stayed at the Anchor Inn for a night and was very pleased. The room was clean and the owners very personable. I especially enjoyed the hammock chairs off the back patio (facing the parking lot). A perfect place to sit and read.

I booked a room at this beautiful and very friendly attentive B&B for one night while attending the Rolex 24 hour race in Daytona Beach. NOWHERE in the description of this property or being told by owners, was I told that the location is 1 block away from a major railway line where trains run every 1 to 2 hours...

Gwazie, I sorry you feel the Inn was Misrepresented! New Smyrna Beach is historically a railroad town. We are located in the historic downtown. The Inn is a Sears craftsman, meaning that it lies within one mile of a train. They would stop the train to deliver the house and required it to be no more then one mile of...

I stay here regularly. The hostesses/owners are friendly, caring and helpful. Breakfast is three courses of great food and I love the accessibility of homemade cookies and coffee or tea at night. Good location, not beach side but in walking distance of shops, restaurants on downtown Canal Street

The sleeping quarters are decent. Breakfast was amazing... Coffee cake, fruit and Eggs benedict. The only thing was the customer printer did not work but the owner still allowed me to print from their printer. We wished we had stayed longer and would definitely recommend..Owner are very friendly.

We stayed on New Year's Eve and the night before. We had a wonderful welcome by one of the owners. Beautiful room with huge bathroom and nice, peaceful patio just out the door.

This is in a great location. Very clean and wonderful rooms to stay in. The owners are so welcoming and breakfast is excellent. We are gluten free and they made us special muffins every morning which was a treat. I would put this at the top of my list for New Smyrna.

Just got back from a weekend in New Smyrna Beach and the delightful Anchor Inn. Everything was perfect - friendly hosts, beautiful room, delicious breakfasts, hot chocolate and cookies. We have found a new home away from home and can't wait to come back!

Beautiful place. We were made immediately welcome by owners Ellen and Marie having arrived early, and were invited to a charity dinner they were hosting which unfortunately we couldn't attend.
