The Basics


The St. Francis Inn, built in 1791, is an oasis. Guests easily walk to everything St Augustine offers and then return to the B&B to relax. Some of our 19 unique rooms have fireplaces, balconies, and jetted tubs, all featuring antique furniture and modern comforts. The grounds include a heated pool, four-season gardens, and a walled courtyard. Guests return year after year for the friendly staff, generous amenities, and scrumptious food.

Stay for the Story

The inn was built in 1791 as a family home, but it’s been an inn since 1845. You’ll see our origins wherever you look. Walking through you’ll find exposed beams and period furniture. St Augustine loves its history. As its oldest inn, we fit right in.

Guest Reviews

My wife and I stayed at St Francis Inn over a long weekend in September for our anniversary and loved our stay. The room we stayed in (Balcony Room) was very spacious especially for a BnB. It was in a quiet part of town that was close enough to walk (.4 mi.) to the downtown area with all the sites, dining and attractions. The staff was great and the...See More

Kristen was such a wonderful host. She provided a great overview tour of the inn and amenities with a welcoming smile. Each day’s breakfast meal was a delight and something we looked forward to.

Parking area was a bonus, as we had our bikes on the car and it provided...See More
