Bayfront Westcott House B&B
146 Avenida Menendez, St Augustine FL 32084

First of all, hats off to Christopher Walken, right?! And how random to capture such greatness IN A HOTEL! We probably get more joy from watching this video than the average viewer because of course we love everything hospitality oriented, and we don’t get much that is this great!

Equally great would it be if our guests felt that way about US – that they get more joy than most from reading our posts and actually staying with us because what we offer them is better than average. We can tease and tantalize with all sorts of special offers and elaborate packages (and do), but we find that the seasoned traveler, the perceptive planner, the savvy internet vacation shopper, knows exactly what they want and won’t be persuaded to purchase anything that doesn’t 100% fulfill their desires. This St Augustine B&B accommodates the flexibility to customize one’s stay at Bayfront Westcott House with a smorgasbord of complimentary luxury items.

When you stay any 2 nights at Bayfront Westcott House, the #3-TripAdvisor-ranked St Augustine B&B, be sure to add the Pick Your Pleasure package. Good luck though deciding on which complimentary luxury items to add.

You will be invited to select one item from each list – the Pampered List and the Playful List. On the Pampered List are items like breakfast in bed; sparkling champagne; chocolate-dipped strawberries; a fruit and cheese plate; and a 60-minute in-room massage (the massage counts as both selections). Items from the Playful List include a catamaran sail with St Augustine Eco Tours; tickets for St. Augustine’s Old Town Trolley; tickets for the Ghosts & Gravestones tour; and a $30 gift card to a local restaurant like The Tasting Room, Collage, or Meehan’s Irish Pub.

There are lots of fun things to do in St Augustine in August and September. Walk The Moon, Misterwives, Slightly Stoopid, Ray LaMotagne, Goo Goo Dolls, and Collective Soul with be at St Augustine Amphitheatre. There is free Music By The Pier every Wednesday evening at St Aug Beach Pier. There are free concerts in the downtown Plaza every Thursday evening. The Sing Out Loud Music Festival. The Last 5 Years at Limelight Theatre. The annual Spanish Wine Festival. Founding Day at The Mission. The Ponte Vedra Auto Show. St. Augustine Fashion Week and much more!

This offer is valid with any 2-night stay (even weekends) when you book any room at regular rate except Emma, Rachel, Alexandra, and Abigail. If you are looking for last-minute single-night stay rates, those are the rooms to watch! Pick Your Pleasure is available thru August 31, 2016, and then again from September 6-30, 2016.

At this St Augustine B&B, we will coordinate your every wish and spoil you every second! 

Pineapple Kiwi and Mint: Refreshing in So Many Ways! 5 Aug 2015, 2:33 pm

A Luxury St Augustine B&
146 Avenida Menendez, St. Augustine FL 32084 /904.825.4602

Pineapple, kiwi, and mint--the mixture chosen by this St Augustine B&B as the refreshingly healthy garnish for its Baked Egg and Cheese Flan. 

There is nothing complicated about it . . . Simply cut your fresh pineapple and kiwi into bite-sized pieces; finely chop your mint; mix all three ingredients. Super easy to make and very good for you! Serve at room temperature or chilled, at your discretion.

In terms of storage, we find that our fixings fare better and taste better when stored in glass containers, plus, contaminant / toxin scenarios are decreased significantly with glass containers versus plastic. For this dish, however, we make every effort to prepare only enough for one sitting.

This pineapple-kiwi-mint combination has many tasty applications, to include a fabulous breakfast smoothie; homemade flavored water; salsa; bruschetta; guacamole; slaw; chicken dishes; crab cake sliders; black beans and rice wraps; spring rolls; cream cheese-filled won-tons topping; BBQ sauce; a fruit dip; frozen fruit pops; muffins; cheesecake; etc. 

Another Westcott guest-favorite breakfast side is our Hollandaise sauce. Ingredients you will want to have on hand to make a 1-1/2 cup serving are 3 large eggs (yolks); 1 tablespoon of lemon juice; 1 tablespoon of hot sauce; 1 tablespoon of water; salt; freshly ground pepper; 6 to 8 oz of soft unsalted butter; fresh parsley; and scallions. Place a stainless steel bowl over a pot of simmering water, being careful to not let the bottom touch the water. In that bowl, whisk together the egg yolks, lemon juice, hot sauce, and water until pale yellow in color. Remove the bowl from the pot. Whisking vigorously, add the melted butter, 1 tablespoon at a time, whisking until all the butter is incorporated. Keep warm until ready to serve over poached egg, ham, and toasted English muffin. Sprinkle with fresh parsley and/or scallions if desired. Season with salt and pepper. This is also yummy with the pineapple-kiwi-mint mixture added to it. The plain version also is an excellent drizzle for veggies.

Other specialty items and signature dishes you will find on the menu at this St Augustine B&B (that which we we hope will make you say "I just had the best breakfast in St Augustine"), include our Eat Well / Be Well Ham, Egg, Onion, and Artichoke Casserole, ramekin baked and topped with cheddar cheese sauce; Five Cheeses and Sausage Casserole, featuring croissant soaked in egg with cheese and sausage and baked to perfection; a Country Scramble with eggs, sausage, peppers, and onions, served with cheesy grits; Baked French Toast; and an Eggs, Bacon, and Asiago Cheese, potato-crusted quiche!  

If you like the sound of all that, you’ll love our sweet treats available throughout the day and the other complimentary eats during the early-evening social hour. We love gourmet cheeses and dips and of course the accompanying crackers must be equally decadent, but rest assured, for those who enjoy the traditional, we keep an ample supply of Ritz Crackers. 

We hope that you will join us, if only for a quick visit, and let us treat you like you deserve to be treated. At Bayfront Westcott House, we will coordinate your every wish and spoil you every second!

Public Pool and a Romantic Rendezvous in St Augustine 20 Jul 2015, 9:52 am

Bayfront Westcott House B&B
146 Avenida Menendez, St Augustine FL 32084

What a great way for the early riser to start the St Augustine summer day (a Monday, Wednesday, or a Friday) . . . a wake-up moment with a great cup of coffee or herbal tea on the bayfront veranda; a run (or bike ride) to St. Augustine's community pool for some laps; and back to the B&B for a fabulous breakfast!

St. Augustine's public pool is located on the south end of Riberia Street, barely a mile from the Inn. It is part of the William Galimore Center. It is open daily until September 7 this year (2015). The pool opens at 6 am Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays; 9 am on Tuesdays and Thursdays; noon on Saturdays; and 1 pm on Sundays. It is a very serene spot and typically not overcrowded. 

If you're not in a hurry to get back to the Inn, head north on Riberia (to 112) and swing by the St Augustine Distillery to take advantage of their free tour as Distillery craftsmen mix, mash, cook, and distill small batch vodka, rum, gin, and whiskey in this historically renovated 1917 ice manufacturing plant. You will learn about the history of ice and distilling in Florida and then sample the product yourself in the tasting room. There’s no charge and the tours are every 30 minutes (visit the website for days and times).

Behind the Distillery (to the left), you will find nestled way nicely at the water's edge St. Augustine's premiere food truck, Crave, offering smoothies, wraps, salads, and sandwiches. Fresh, local, healthy, and yummy! A recent Crave reviewer stated "The best way to describe Crave Food Truck--A hidden gem of good food. The presentation is clean and aesthetically appealing to the eye. I had the Sweet Harvest Wrap, which is a mixture of red peppers, berries, sweet potato, carrots, and cabbage that offers a refreshing taste your palette. The ingredients are fresh. The ambience? How it should be! Casual, friendly. The food comes out fast".

It is definitely hot this time of year (mid July and August) and if riding bike, swimming, and touristing are not your favorite things to do in these temperatures, why not turn the opportunity to get away into an indoor romantic rendezvous? Crank up the AC, light the fireplace, and settle in for a couple of days of R&R (you decide what R&R stands for). This St Augustine B&B has a great Summer Romance Package for just $647 plus tax that includes a 2-night stay, Sunday – Thursday in July and August, in select rooms plus 2 half-hour in-room massages; a bottle of sparkling nonalcoholic wine; a fresh fruit and cheese platter; a lovely assortment of bath salts, soaps, and creams; a $50 gift certificate to Collage Restaurant; and breakfast in bed one morning. Your room choices for this package offer include Alexandra, Abigail, Anastasia, Caroline, Isabella, Menendez, Minorcan, Ponce de Leon, and Rebecca. To book this package, click the Check Room Availability button at the top right of the website, then select the "Packages" tab and select the Summer Romance offer, either midweek for $647 plus tax or a Friday and Saturday stay for $827.

Never stayed at a B&B and on the fence as to whether you should try one?
This St Augustine B&B, rated on TripAdvisor as one of the Top 3 B&Bs in the nation's oldest city, wants to help you jump over that fence! 

We are confident that you will be pleasantly surprised by your stay. And truth be told, these days, a lot of local hotels charge almost as much as does this B&B, without all the complimentary extras or the service that you get at Westcott House. Stay any 2 nights, in any room, at regular rate in August 2015 at Bayfront Westcott House and receive a complimentary gift certificate valued at $175 for a future stay for yourself or as a gift to someone else. Read more ...

The first thing you will love is our convenient location and fabulous check-in experience!

Pull up right out front (on the bay front), and park temporarily in the loading zone between our white house and the yellow building next door. Leave your bags in the car and come on in. After your welcome and introduction, we will determine your parking scenario and retrieve your luggage from the car and take it to your room.

Our staff is well versed on how to start off your St Augustine getaway on the right foot!
Operation “Coordinate Your Every Wish and Spoil You Every Second” begins now! You will be greeted by one of our personable but professional hospitality staff and offered a beverage of your choice (room temp or chilled bottled water; soda; coffee; iced tea or hot tea, regular or one of our signature hebals); wine; or beer). We will share with you all the information you need with regard to your Westcott stay, parking, attractions, tours, exclusive merchant offers, getting around town, and St Augustine in general. We will refer you to the best restaurants and attractions based on our experiences and your interests, and we would be delighted to make reservations for you, right there on the spot or later, after you’ve had time to think about how you wish for your St Augustine getaway to take form. As soon as you are confident with how to move forward with your vacation, we will retrieve your luggage, and escort you to your room.

The next thing you'll fall in love with is our in-room amenities!
In your room you will find period antiques, a flat-screen television with standard cable, perhaps an electric fireplace, and luxurious bedding. Our bedding is from the Comphy Company sheet line, featuring breathable, hypoallergenic microfiber sheets, comparable to a 600 thread count, with an extra-fine weave that helps protect against allergens. You can even take a fresh set home; we have them on sale at the front desk, so see your innkeeper if interested!

In your private bath (whether shower or jetted tub and shower), you will find the luxurious William Roam “Float” collection of bath products. This line features liquids that are specially formulated with certified Hawaiian deep seawater from Kona, Hawaii. Pulled from 3000 feet below the water's surface, this pollutant-free ingredient is full of vitamins and minerals that leave the skin healthy and radiant. That bath experience is complimented by the plush Monarch Green Earth towels, made from super-fine, Extra-Long Staple (ELS) cotton (160% bulkier and more absorbent than traditional combed cotton towels).

WiFi is available throughout the inn, but as in your home, it is stronger in some areas more than others. Always feel free to ask your innkeeper to Google and/or print something for you! Your innkeeper also has a binder full of current restaurant menus, and there are dozens of local attraction rack cards located in the parlor. 

At this St Augustine B&B, your best reference indeed will be your innkeeper! If we don’t know the answer to your question, we will find that answer, promptly! We exaggerate not; read what everyone else has to say about our innkeepers!

Another thing you'll love is our "Ask and You Shall Receive" policy!
Wondering what to do, where to go, or how to get there; ask, and you shall receive the answer! Need towels or an umbrella for the beach; ask and you shall receive what you need! Have a pre-Westcott addiction to coca-cola or coffee or a newy-acquired taste for one of our signature herbal teas or our brownies or cookies . . . numerous times . . . throughout the day . . . that just . . . must . . . be satiated; ask and you shall receive, without having to pay extra for it and no questions asked! Need a fresh change of towels because you forgot to remove the “Privacy” sign from your door earlier today; ask and you shall receive! Need a re-print of something we printed for you yesterday; ask and you shall receive! Want an extra set of those fabulous William Roam bath products because you’ve taken three baths already, have none left, and just . . . want … more … but are embarrassed to ask? Don’t be silly; just ask, and you shall receive! Whatever it is, don’t be shy; just ask, and you shall indeed receive! You would be surprised by what people ask for, and receive; read about some of those things here . . .

Of course, breakfast is a big event!
A fair but incorrect assumption – that our breakfast can’t be complimentary AND fabulous! Breakfast is served between 8 and 10, you say when! You can sit anywhere you wish, either in the dining room, on the bayfront veranda, or in the courtyard. For an additional fee, we will deliver the very same divine breakfast to your room. We serve a different signature entrée each morning—a full gourmet presentation, whether it be our famous baked French Toast; Ham, Egg, Onion, and Artichoke Casserole; Five Cheese and Sausage Casserole; Baked Egg and Cheese Flan; Country Scrambled Eggs with Sausage, Peppers, and Onions, Served with Cheesy Grits; Eggs Benedict with our very own Heavenly Hollandaise Sauce; or our Eggs, Bacon, and Asiago Cheese Potato-crusted Quiche. If our entrée of the day does not appeal to you, also available to you will be eggs to your liking, bacon, sausage, English muffins, traditional muffins, croissants, bagels, pastries, wheat toast, white toast, fresh fruit cup, yogurt, dry cereals, orange juice, grapefruit juice, coffee, tea, hot cocoa, and milk. During the check-in process, you will be given a breakfast card on which to place your orders for each day (due in to the front desk by 8 pm the night before). Order as much as you like; ask, and you shall receive! Click here to see the full menu.

What? There is more? Indeed!
We offer daily stay-over service (unless you display a Privacy sign on the outside of your door) during which we make your bed and replenish your bath with fresh towels. Each day, guests enjoy a complimentary early-evening social hour from 5:30 to 7 pm. Wine, beer, gourmet cheeses, dips, hors d'oeuvres. AND … the Monday and Wednesday events are hosted by a professional St Augustine storyteller from 6 to 7 pm!  

Anything Else You Desire?
Attraction tickets? In-room wine service? Take-out food delivery service? A cab to take you to a special event? A room reservation for your return trip back through St. Augustine? Whatever it is, ask, and you shall receive.

Official check-out time is 11 am. Just drop off your key at the front desk. If you added anything to your account during your stay, we will settle up at this point. If you’re not leaving town quite yet, we will store your luggage for the afternoon and you can pick it up on your way out of town!

We WILL Coordinate Your Every Wish and Spoil You Every Second!
Your St Augustine getaway will be the best getaway you've had in a long while!

Even though the Vacation Getaway Package features Old Town Trolley Tours, Ripley’s has plenty to offer also! Ripley's Red Trains will run "lightseeing" tours nightly from November 23 through January 4. The trains will run from 6-8 pm Sunday thru Thursday and from 6-10 pm on Fridays and Saturdays. The trains will not operate on Christmas Day. 

Ripley's will kick off their holiday season on November 28 and 29 with holiday movies, a visit from Santa, balloon twisters, a decorate-your-own marshmallow bar, and special VIP tours (by reservation only). Every Thursday from December 4-18, there will be Polynesian fire dancer performances at 7 and 7:45 pm, and then every Friday and Saturday night from December 5-20,  you can enjoy those holiday movies, visits from Santa, balloon twisters, the marshmallow bar, and the Polynesian fire dancer performances.

That certainly does not cover the list of hundreds of holiday-related activities in St Augustine during the Nights of Lights Celebration. Book your room before it's too late. The holiday season in St Augustine will become your favorite addiction, and you'll come back year after year to get your festivities fix!

All holiday events are free with the purchase of a Red Trains Nights of Lights tour.
