img_3166This year’s 23rd Annual St. Augustine Bed and Breakfast Holiday Tour is set to take place Saturday, December, 10th and Sunday, December 11th.

Always on the second December weekend of the year, this event just grows more and more popular each year among visitors and locals of St. Augustine, Florida!

Our inn will show off its holiday spirit and welcome tour-goers on Sunday! Get ready to experience “Christmas through the Years” as you spend two days enjoying St. Augustine’s finest inns and restaurants.

Restaurant Partners

Don’t miss the opportunity to grab an exquisite taste from our fabulous partner and neighboring restaurant – Michael’s Tasting Room! For many years now we have had the luxury of partnering with this fresh, local and seasonal culinary genius!

Michael’s Tasting Room is located on the scenic Calle Cuna, next door to the Agustin. The building began as the Buchanti House that dates back to 1764, and was made famous by the Whitney Family of Marine Land, who refurbished the historic home for the city’s 400th anniversary in 1965. The building later spent time as Wheeler’s Christmas store until Chef Michael and his wife Stephanie converted the structure into a restaurant in 2006.

The menu here changes seasonally, created by focusing on Spanish Mediterranean Cuisine with influence from the finest local ingredients. The restaurant’s casual fine dining approach brings together friendly hospitality with a dedicated focus on impeccable guest service.

If you are looking for the best suggestion for dinner in the heart of the nation’s oldest city, this is our first choice!

A St. Augustine Holiday Tradition

sahi-2016-christmas-through-the-years-193130200Feedback has proved that this two-day holiday tour is one that will really get you in the holiday spirit of things as holiday decoration is a must and know one does that better than the inns! Just prior to the tour, you can embark on another journey through the city’s Annual Nights of Lights Celebration!

Tour Details

This is a self-guided walking tour so be sure to wear comfy shoes. Your ticket will include an extensive tour booklet with maps of each days inns on the tour. Saturday will feature half of the inns in one general area of the historic district and Sunday the other half in another area. You may begin at any inn and in any order you choose. There will also be a free shuttle provided through Old Town Trolley Tours designated solely for this tour. The trolley will specifically stop at different points along the route but some walking will still be required.

Times

Both days the tour will take place between 1:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. and begin at any one of the inns.

Partial Proceeds of the tour are reserved for a designated charity each year. This year’s chosen charity is the Lightner Museum. Their mission is to preserve, maintain, research and interpret the Museum’s collections for the educational benefit of the visiting public. The museum is a non-profit cultural institution sustained by admissions and donations, and is supported by a dedicated staff of volunteers.
