Dream It | Love It | Book It | Live It
Here’s What We’ve Done to Keep You Safe:
Historic Home, Contemporary Conveniences
History, mystery, and romance are what bring people to St. Augustine FL. Its dreamy historic downtown location on the water, vintage charm, stellar customer service, and unparalleled amenities are what attract people to this luxury bed and breakfast.
You’ll find Bayfront Westcott House in the historic downtown area, on Avenida Menendez (formerly known as Bay Street) and overlooking Matanzas Bay. This historic home was built in 1880 as a lavish private residence for Dr. John Westcott, 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.
Dr. Westcott passed away in 1888, and was laid to rest in St. Augustine’s Evergreen Cemetery. His only daughter, Rachel, lived in the home until her death. The house changed hands a few times over the years and saw its fair share of soirées amongst St. Augustine’s elite. In the 1970s, it was converted into a guest house and has been entertaining tourists and travelers ever since!
