One Tripadvisor member talked about the Inn’s “beautiful wrap around patio full of comfy chairs, lounges and candles. So relaxing with a cup of tea or glass of wine, offered in the beverage area.”

In addition to the drinks, many reviewers raved about the homemade cookies.

Bayfront Westcott House Bed and Breakfast, located at 146 Avenida Menendez, was named the No. 7 B&B/Inn in the U.S.

Tripadvisor said the B & B “was built in 1880 as a private residence for Dr. John Westcott who was well known for his prominent military career” and became a guest house in the 1970s.

One reviewer said it was “absolutely gorgeous, with perfect views and amazing food” with a staff “who just wanted us to have the world while we were there.”
