Writers will be selected based on their portfolio and affiliations as well as their ability to broadcast to a specific audience as determined by Bayfront Westcott House.

Bayfront Westcott House, located on Avenida Menendez in St Augustine FL, was built in 1880 as a private residence for Dr. John Westcott who was well known for his prominent military career, interests in transportation and politics, and research efforts in the cause and cure of yellow fever. He was a land surveyor for the St. Johns Railroad (whose tracks spread from the San Sebastian River to Tocoi) and was a heavy hitter in the development of the Intracoastal Waterway that links the St. Johns River to Miami.

The house changed hands a few times over the years and saw its fair share of soirees amongst St. Augustine’s elite. In the 1970s, it was converted into a guest house and has been entertaining tourists and travelers ever since! Today, Bayfront Westcott House is a 16-room, full-service bed and breakfast. Every room has a private entrance. Most rooms have a Jacuzzi tub, electric fireplace, and outdoor sitting area.

This St Augustine bed and breakfast is but a short walk from all that the historic district has to offer—breathtaking architecture and historic landmarks; museums and art galleries; and quaint and eclectic little shops; dozens of restaurants and street-side cafés; and so much more!
