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

Excellent location for enjoying St. Augustine. Cindy has been amazing. We enjoyed a birthday celebration with a cake placed in our room. The breakfast was good. Saying hi to the outdoor resident cats by the pool was a nice bonus. Complimentary umbrellas, bicycles, coffee.

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.

I was traveling solo and spent three nights here in November. What a great experience! Walking distance to almost everything significant in St. Augustine, great historical charm, friendly hard-working staff, wonderful breakfasts, and even time to re-connect with the owner from years past when our professional careers crossed and caught up with his life and family. Couldn't have asked for a more ideal vacation. I met several patrons who...See More

This B & B is in a perfect location. We loved how close we were to everything, we could just walk everywhere and not have to worry about parking. The room was beautiful and spacious.

The evening desserts not as...See More

There's a social every...See More
