TravelPod Member ReviewsAt Journey's End Bed and Breakfast Saint Augustine
Das Bett ist ein Traum - die. Laken sind die weichsten, zwischen denen ich je gelegen habe. Das ganze Zimmer strahlt Ruhe und Frieden aus. Dabei war es über Nacht auch wirklich ruhig. Die Klimaanlage ist ruhig aber effizient und ist eben nicht im Nachhinein in ein Fenster eingebaut. Der Wohnraum unten ist gemütlich. Zum Abschluss des Tages kann man sich an Sherry und Portwein bedienen.

Historical Traveler Reviews At Journey's End Bed and Breakfast Saint Augustine
My domestic partner and I were looking for something special to do on our 4 year anniversary. So she thought it would be nice to surprise me with a wonderful weekend in St. Augustine. I had mentioned that i had never been there so she decided that was where we were going to spend our anniversary and she went online to search for a bed and breakfast(which i might add we had never been to one). In her search for the perfect spot she clicked on At Journey's End website and loved the rooms and decided to call the inn and inquire about the area and availibilty, and none the least to be sure that they were a gay friendly establishment. When she called she spoke with Ellen Cook and explained everything to her and she made my partner feel so comfortable on the phone that the search ended for the best possible B & B. Well i finally begged my partner to let me in on the plans and i called Ellen myself in order to surprise my partner with a couples massage, when i told Ellen that it was going to be a surprise for my partner she said no problem let me work on making all the arrangements for you (me). She was also very helpfull in informing us of where the best places to eat were at and that everything was walking distance that we would be able to forget about driving anywhere until we were leaving to go back home.When we arrived at the Inn it was about 9:30pm and Ellen and John were pateitly waiting on us to arrive. Upon arrival we meet with John first and he was absolutly great showed us how to enter the house. As we entered the house we were greeted by Ellen and a great big smile (bless her heart). The house was absolutly breathtaking and it smelled wonderful. We were showed we the drinks , ice and cookies we for us to enjoy throughout the nite. We were showed to our beautifully decorated room and we were given a card by Ellen and John with their number just in case we needed anything to call no matter what time it was.(which was very comforting). At breakfast we were greeted with smiles from other guests at the Inn as well as from our hosts which were hard at work bright and early to prepare us a wonderful frenchtoast breakfast and she (Ellen) had prepared a very elegant table for two for us. We enjoyed our breakfast and the time with other guests and not to mention we were all in stitches of laughter by the time we all excused ourselves to prepare for the rest of the day. We all exchanged alot of information on resturants , shop and activities to do. This was absolutly the best present that my partner could have given me (besides herself). While we were at the Inn i felt like i was at home we didn't have to act or change anything. Ellen and John were great and we hope to go back and take of children with us next time. This was definitely a great place to go and spend a stress free weekend and forget about the world.
Best B&B Ever
My husband and I honeymoooned 8 years ago on St. Augustine Beach and wanted to return to St Augustine for an anniversary trip but stay "in town" instead. We enjoyed every minute of our stay 'At Journey's End Bed and Breakfast'. The location was great and the breakfasts were yummy and filling - a great way to start the day! We stayed in the 'Key West Suite' which was just right - roomy yet private, since it is situated behind the main house.
Ellen are John are warm and inviting hosts, who are very interested in making your stay a great one. We are looking forward to our next stay!
Absoulutely wonderful and extremely charming! From the first time we contacted At Journeys End to inquire about rates and room availability we knew we had found the bed and breakfast we wanted. The proprietors were extremely helpful in not only booking our room but also in advising us on good places to dine and visit. ALL that Ellen and John suggested turned out to be PERFECT! The restaurants we dined in, the attraction we visited, and of course the room we were booked in. Everytime we had a question on anything they were quick to responed. The bed and breakfast itself was extremely charming, clean, and very, very comfortable. The breakfast were also very very good and timely. At Journeys End is located where we were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go too. We parked our car the day we arrived and never had to use it again. We are planning to go back to St. Augustine early next year and will not consider staying anywhere but At Journeys End. Thank You John and Ellen for a truely wonderful experience and we will see you soon!

Warn and Welcoming in an Ideal location.
This was the first bed & breakfast that we have stayed at in all our trips to Florida and I can certainly endorse all of the recent glowing reviews.
We were made very welcome by our hosts, Ellen & John, and our room (Safari-with balcony) was lovely. All the previous comments about the excellent food, location, local advice etc. are correct. When we mentioned one minor complaint about a local restaurant, Ellen immediately contacted the owner who apologised and offered us a free lunch!
The beginning of a wonderful Journey
This year my husband and I decided to try something new to celebrate our October birthdays. I always trusted the Trip Advisor's reviews and by far they were Right!! We have never stayed in a Bed and Breakfast before and were a little concerned about our privacy. Let me assure you, not only did we have complete privacy, we had a clean and beautifully decorated Safari room with a private balcony. Our hosts were John and Ellen, and they went above and beyond the word "Hosts".
If we had any questions about dining or sightseeing they were eager to point us in the right direction, and trust me listen to them, every restaurant that was suggested was exactly as they described, Outstanding!! We had some absolutely delicious dishes. But the most delicious dish started at breakfast, with homemade granola, fresh fruit (strawberries, blueberries, kiwi, and melon) with vanilla yogurt, and that was just for starters, we also had homemade Crème Brule' French Toast, Sausage, Bacon and unlimited beverages. And that was just the first day.
This beautiful 1800's Victorian style Bed and Breakfast is centrally located in the heart of St. Augustine, which made it extremely convenient to walk to all of the historical attractions. After a day of sightseeing we relaxed on the front porch and enjoyed a special bottle of wine as we watched the horse-drawn buggies pass.
On Sunday, it was our Journey's End but not the end of many more Journeys' to John and Ellen's Bed & Breakfast "Journey's End".
A Flight Attendants review.
Having stayed in many accomodations, none riviled our stay "At Journeys End". The warmth and hospitality of Ellen and John was above and beyond any B&B guest expectation. The amenities provided in our room was totally unexpected and the snacks left out during the day and evening brought back memories of family past. The feel of being in your own home was all through this wonderful quaint house. Sitting on the front porch or on our balcony, having morning coffee and smelling the exceptional breakfast being fixed by Ellen only enhanced the delight of watching the carriages go by on Cedar Street. After our first breakfast -- the anticipation of what Ellen and John were going to serve each morning was very real. The Frittata, Creme Brulee French Toast and homemade breakfast pastries were only a few of the courses served. I wanted each recipe as soon as I took a bite. The food and service is exceptional. The book of menu's for great restuarants was always available and the recomendations from Ellen and John were invaluable, as was their making our reservations especially on a weekend. Everything is close to this B&B and walking or catching the trolley was wonderfully convienent. I look forward to my visit again. We only had three days and actually considered staying an extra day. There is just so much to see and with Ellen and John's knowledge of St. Augustine, you too will want to come again -- as we are in December!
Wonderful Stay in Historic St. Augustine!
My husband and I recently spent 4 nights at At Journey's End and it was wonderful - our best B&B experience ever! John & Ellen are outstanding hosts and great folks - very welcoming, kind and helpful. The breakfasts were fantastic, the historic house beautiful and we truly enjoyed our stay in the China Room - very clean, private and comfortable. Great location too -if you are visiting St. Augustine, this is the place to stay! Thank you John & Ellen - we'll be back!
Outstanding B&B, highly, highly recommend!!
Our stay at this incredible Bed and Breakfast was 110% beyond our expectations! We were forced to cancel plans to meet with family members at one of the Panhandle beaches due to Hurricane Dennis, but at the very last minute John and Ellen were able to salvage our family get together by providing us with outstanding accommodations at their beautiful B&B. You could travel from one end of the country to the other and never find hosts like these two! Everything was perfect. Immaculate rooms, lively conversation, breakfasts that were out of this world, recommendations on the best places to dine (along with coupons for discounts!), shady porches just for relaxing, an easy walk to all the major attractions in St. Augustine, ample parking-it would be impossible to ask for more than At Journey's End has to offer. We enjoyed the Key West Suite, really a small apartment complete with kitchenette and a bright and cheery decor, what a wonderful place to come home to after a long day of sightseeing. And our little dog was just as welcome as we were!
Make At Journey's End your first choice if you are planning a trip to St. Augustine, you will love it!
Great bed and breakfast - you need look no further!
We stayed at a wonderful bed and breakfast in St. Augustine, Florida this past week called At Journeys End. The only bed and breakfast we had ever stayed in before was down in Key West - but after this experience I don't believe it qualifies. Our hosts were Ellen Cook and John July. When we arrived they brought us in and showed us all around the house which is beautifully furnished and smelled wonderful. There were freshly baked cookies waiting for us on the table. After we were shown around the house we were taken to our room which was again beautifully decorated and had a big king size bed that felt like ours at home. We also had an adjoining bath with a wonderful jacuzzi tub and a shower which opened up onto a hugh private balconey. We were on the second floor so we were able to watch all the carriages drive by. Ellen gave us her card and told us to make sure to call her anytime day or night if we needed anything - and she really meant it! We had a great night's sleep and in the morning breakfast was served at 9:00AM. Oh my gosh - what a great cook! Ellen's breakfasts were awesome. She had fresh fruit, pastries, quiches, waffles, french toast and they were all delicious. It was quite fun sitting with all the other house guests and comparing what we had all done the day before. We would get suggestions of what was good to do and what wasn't worth the money. We rarely ran into anyone else in the house, during the day. It seemed we were all out at different times, so often, we felt we had the house to ourselves. The jacuzzi tub definitely came in handy for sore feet and legs after walking all day in the hot sun. We absolutely had a wonderful time and would like to recommend this bed and breakfast to anyone, even for a night or two, who is staying in St. Augustine. You will not find a nicer place, or hosts anywhere. You will not want to leave to go home you'll think you are already there!
At Journey's End, a quaint, immaculate bed and breakfast in historic St. Augustine was a true find. The host and hostess are knowledgeable and fun and go out of their way to make their guests feel welcome and comfortable.
We returned from our annual "girls getaway" and the feeling was unanimous. This inn is located within walking distance to anything you could want to see in the area and the ambience was fabulous. The rooms each had their own "theme" and it lived up to it's billing.
We would go back again in a minute!
