Historical Traveler Reviews Penny Farthing Inn Saint Augustine
Not Bad, I've stayed at much Better for Less
We spent two nights at the B&B. The room was nice, but very small. The TV was only about 13", if that big. No hangers available to hang clothes on in the closet. We have stayed in B&B's in Europe and the buffet breakfast was no where near the quality and quantity we expected. Slim pickings, and you were pretty much stuck with whatever was made for breakfast. There was free beverages, wine and soda. For the price I expected much more. I would certainly shop around before considering staying here again.
Talk about Southern Hospitality
My son and I stayed at Penny Farthing while visiting Flager college. The accomodations were excellent and the food was "the best ever". Patty, our hostess made us feel right at home and we look forward to coming back soon.
Our Romantic Retreat
Our stay at the Penny Farthing Inn was eveything we look for in a B&B: romantic, comfortable, peaceful, private. Our hostess was friendly and accomodating. The rooms were beautifully decorated and immaculate, yet comfortable. The food was excellent with sumptuous breakfasts and delicious desserts for a late afternoon or evening snack. The cozy sunporch with microwave and refrigerator well-stocked with beverages was one more nice touch that made us feel
right at home. The location of Penny Farthing is perfect; on a quiet street just around the corner from the Lightner Museum, it is within walking distance of attractions and restaurants. We were there Labor Day weekend 2005 and we hated to leave. We've made it "our" place for romantic retreats year-round!
Loved the penny farthing inn
Our stay at the Penny Farthing Inn was wonderful. The inn is beautiful, romantic and peaceful. Patty was fantastic! Our every comfort was seen to. She is also a wonderful cook, her breakfasts are so good, I did not have room for lunch! The location is also great, with a cute coffee shop right around the corner.
We celebrated our 20th anniversary @ Penny Farthing. We had the best time ever. Penny's Attic is so private, peaceful and romantic with a little bit of fun thrown in!
My husband can't say enough about the BREAKFAST buffet. Patty knows how's to make everyone feel so welcome.
Can't say enough positive things about this beautiful getaway.
Peaceful, great location !
My husband and I stayed at Penny Farthing October 2005. We stayed in the Treehouse. The room has its own private access and the location of the Inn cannot be beat. It is very quiet yet a stone throw away from town. Patty is the Inn hostess and is delightful. Each evening she had a wonderful dessert waiting for the guests after dinner. The Inn is under new ownership and it appears they are working on making it even nicer. We spent 2 nights at the Penny Farthing and left very relaxed and renewed! Great place.
Charming-est room i've ever stayed in
My (now) husband and I stayed at the Penny Farthing Inn the night after our wedding and the night after that. And we loved it. We stayed in the treehouse, which has to be the most charming room I've ever seen.
I love tiny quaint spaces and this is one. You climb up stairs to get to it and it has a little window seat and it was absolutely lovely.
Plus the inn had a great selection of movies, which we didn't get to watch at all, given all the wedding goings-on. But we did get to enjoy the gorgeous breakfasts, which resulted in two recipes that i took home (also a first for me. I have never before asked a b&b for a recipe).
Anyway, I absolutely recommend this place. The location was also great, just off the main drag so a bit quieter and close to the Lightner museum.
Comfy & Cozy at the Penny Farthing Inn!
Our first attempt at a bed & breakfast was so successful...we don't think we'll stay at a hotel again! The Penny Farthing Inn was so comfy and cozy we felt like we were at home away from home. It was warm and inviting and just around the corner from all the places that make St. Augustine a quaint little town. We plan on being repeat customers!
Loved our stay at Penny Farthing Inn
My Husband and I had a wonderful time in St Augustine, thanks to our stay at the Penny Farthing Inn...the room was warm and cozy and the breakfasts were superb, I could have stayed forever...
FEELS LIKE HOME - ONLY BETTER
My husband and I spent four wonderful nights at a little Bed & Breakfast in St. Augustine. It was our first visit there and we wanted a more intimate experience than a chain hotel could offer.
We chose the Penny Farthing partly because of the name (it brought back memories of our travels in Scotland) but also because of their downtown location, free parking and other amenities.
Little did we know, those other amenities would be so enjoyable. Innkeeper Patty was warm and welcoming, the Inn was delightful and the food was delicious. Wine was available at all times, as were tea and coffee.
Patty gave helpful advice on restaurants and tourist attractions; and asked ours if we went somewhere she hadn't been to yet.
We can't wait to go back to that beautiful city and stay at the Penny Farthing again! I often think of those quiet moments, on our private veranda, before heading downstairs for that wonderful breakfast.

walked around town on a ghost walk, learning about the history and taking pictures of orbs. There were a few good tales and it was an interesting experience. It was a good way to see the town as we would not have time in the morning and we were lazy in the afternoon. After
the ghost walk we walked back to the hotel and off to bed.
