Suzanne and Susan treated us like family from the first conversation about booking. We arrived to wine and cookies along with a big smile. Issues were quickly cleared, 98 degree weather caused AC problems but Susan immediately took care of it. Breakfast was right on time and delicious. Great night at The Old Powder House Inn!

Hurry back so you can sit on the veranda and have that glass of wine and as many chocolate chip cookies as you'd like. We have so much fun welcoming you to the Old Powder House Inn. Hope to see you again soon.

We stayed here for two nights and had a wonderful time. The breakfasts were amazing, and Suzanne's advice, friendliness, and excitement about St. Augustine really made this a wonderful stay. Also, the porches (1st and 2nd story) are wonderful places to wile away a few hours here and there.

My husband and I visited Memorial Day weekend and stayed for 3 nights in the Queen Anne Lace room. We loved that it was on the second floor and right by the 2nd floor veranda - where there are comfy chairs and a porch swing. Every day the breakfast was amazing.

It was a fun weekend in St. Augustine wasn't it? The Queen Anne's Lace is one of our two most Victorian rooms, the other is the Victoria Rose. You'll have to try some of the others next time you visit. Thanks for such a nice review and thanks for coming to The Old Powder House Inn.

Making our guests feel special is what we try to do at the Old Powder House Inn, because you are special. Watching the horses and carriages go by, from the veranda, takes you back in time doesn't it? We hope you hurry back so we can spoil you again.
