Rewards for the Gallant August Traveler

By: Jamie Narehood

Rewards for the Gallant August Traveler

St. Augustine Florida's August temperatures can be challenging (typically in the high 80s | low 90s | feels like 100s), so for those fearless few, referred to affectionately as the August Traveler, we wish to reward such admirable seasonal gallantry with a prescription pampering and playfulness, as so ordered by Dr. Westcott! Don't worry about whether your insurance will approve it; you’re covered!

You'll find Bayfront Westcott House Bed and Breakfast in the historic downtown area, right on the water, on Avenida Menendez (formerly known as Bay Street), 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 big player 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!

Today, Bayfront Westcott House is a 16-room, full-service luxury bed and breakfast. Room selection is a huge factor in the ultimate experience. Choose from electric fireplaces, luxury soaking tubs, jetted tubs, spa showers, and private outdoor seating. All rooms feature hypoallergenic microfiber sheets; plush but eco-friendly large bath sheet towels; and William Roam premium toiletries. Inclusive to your room rate is a fabulous full breakfast each morning as well as an early-evening social hour featuring an assortment of beers, wines, and light nibbles. On Wednesdays, social hour is hosted by a professional St. Augustine historian/storyteller, and on certain Monday evenings (e.g., August 13 and 27), classical guitarist Alejandro Rowinsky graces our veranda with his wonderful music.

As for those earlier-eluded-to rewards, August Travelers, for you we offer this.
