Named for Don Manuel Lorenzo Solana, one of the first Spaniards to land in St Augustine, this historic inn is dripping in local history.

Owned by the Ponce family – one of the oldest families in the US – the Conch House was once a four-room hotel under the guise Ponces by the Sea. Today, it’s a tropical-themed resort with a selection of cheerful rooms and suites. Embrace island living and bask in the sun surrounded by greenery, or hide in the shade of a palapa-style parasol. Make sure to visit the Coach House Lounge, a Robinson Crusoe-esque bar sitting on stilts above the water.

    Sitting on Matanzas Bay, this waterfront retreat is a collection of four separate lots brought together to create a 36-room hotel. The oldest of the quartet is the Rodrigues House, built in 1572 on royal decree from the King of Spain. Its buffet-style breakfast is a royal-worthy banquet and the afternoon freshly made chocolate chip cookies a fitting offering.

    While Ernest never stayed here, the adults-only Hemingway House is named after the owners’ favorite writer. At night, the street comes alive with an assortment of music venues – of which the novelist would surely approve. Breakfasts are fresh and filling, whether it’s french toast topped with cinnamon-citrus syrup or strata filled with turkey ham and gooey cheese, while every evening starts with a casual social hour.

    Bayfront Marin House

    Bed and Breakfast, Inn, Hotel
    4.7/5 (144 Reviews)

    Opposite Matanzas Bay, this 15-room B&B offers a relaxed, sophisticated stay while still being close to the action. The rooms are individually styled with standout period furnishings – most have a double-jetted tub. Make sure to request water views upon booking; you might even spot the odd dolphin pod. A stay comes with a Southern-style breakfast cooked by chef Mary, and there’s a happy hour in the evenings.
