everyone, all elegantly decorated and appointed.

out on his search for a perfect historic inn many years ago. He worked toward owning his own bed & breakfast for many
years. “I enjoy making my guests comfortable,” confirms Rodney, “Their comfort is what I strive for.
Being a block from the bayfront, legendary fort and a plethora of great restaurants, it’s a pleasure to sit on the front
porch with everyone to enjoy the city scene and not feel the bustling ‘business’ of the city.
his grandmother Lucy Hunter for giving him his first hands-on culinary adventure (oatmeal), Rodney enjoys trying new recipes
and offering his guests the opportunity to taste results from his ‘test kitchen’. And what a coincidence
that his mother’s name was Charlotte!

excitement in St. Augustine. “I enjoy promoting our wonderful city, writing stories that appear on my website about
things to do, the dining scene and the historical side of America’s Oldest City. My guests enjoy previewing many of
the attractions, shops and people that make their visit memorable”.
