This was our first stay at a Bed and Breakfast and it was such a lovely experience that we have decided to look to stay in a B&B on all of our trips. The owners were out of town and their innkeeper, Diane, was a wonderful hostess. We had no negative issues, we loved using the bikes to get around... More

We were thrilled for your family as you welcomed your baby girl to the world! We also appreciate that you made arrangements with us directly since you won't find Watergarden Inn at the Bay on global booking sites such as Expedia or Hotels.com. More

We recently spent a week at this lovely bed and breakfast near the waterfront in St Petersburg. The large 1920s home has been beautifully renovated with modern baths with a huge whirlpool. We had a large room with feather bed top, antiques and of course a large flatscreen TV. Unlike many B&Bs the Watergarden has a new and beautifully landscaped... More

We stayed four days at this tranquil and lovely B&B while house hunting in St. Petersburg. Wilder & Bill were the perfect hosts from the moment we arrived, engaging us in conversation and offering information about the area. The Inn is beautifully decorated and is centrally located within walking distance to Beach Drive and the Ale & Witch and Wine... More

What is that saying about real estate? Location, location…and…okay, I eliminated the third one; more about that later. I know the downtown St. Petersburg area very well, and, for the most part, the Watergarden Inn is well situated for most activities in this “walking” town. Just one block off of Beach Drive and North Straub Park, 2 ½ blocks from... More

The Watergarden Inn was the perfect location for our daughter's commitment ceremony. It made it possible for friends and family from near and far to come together for a weekend to enjoy each other in this wonderful, relaxed, hospitable setting.
