We stayed at Penny Farthing Inn, November 16-20 for our 40th wedding anniversary. The owners Marie and Dave are wonderful, welcoming and caring. The location of the inn is terrific, just around the corner from just about everything. We parked our car at the inn and never needed it till we drove home. Breakfast was delicious every morning. The entire... More

Another great visit. This time we stayed in the Victorian room and had our own private balcony. Breakfast was surperior again! I cannot say enough about Marie and Dave and their family. They are so friendly and helpful. While we entered, they were getting prepared for the festival of lights and Christmas. They were so welcoming even though we were... More

Stayed here 2 nights and cherished the experience. Across from Flagler College, so easy walking to main cobblestone shopping/eating area. Amazing breakfasts (eggs benedict and sausage quiche) eaten out on the porch. My room had a private balcony with wooden rocking chair to enjoy morning coffee and evening solitude.

This was our first BnB stay ever and it was fantastic. The house was old and happy, like a doting grandmother, comfortable and warm. It was perfectly located and the staff was fantastic. The food was an absolute delight. It was so very quiet, too.

We were able to borrow beach towels one day for Anastasia park and they provided great restaurant advice. Breakfasts were delicious (eggs Benedict with spinach, banana waffles).

Excellent location for historic St Augustine! Good breakfast! Spacious covered porch with plenty seating. Computer help with airline boarding pass. Small room, just enough for queen-size bed. Very noisy a/c, with locked out controls for fan and temp. Bath and closet combination (hat and coat rack) large enough. We saw no other bedrooms.
