Beach Drive Inn Bed and Breakfast

Our Historic InnThe Beach Drive Inn Bed & Breakfast in beautiful Downtown St. Petersburg, And, like all of our guests, we think you’ll agree that this is the place you were dreaming about. We’re nestled at the North end of Beach Drive, right on the edge of Historic Old Northeast–and right across the street from the Renaissance Vinoy Resort.  Our Inn faces downtown St. Pete’s beautiful waterfront and Vinoy Park, and is within walking distance of shopping, restaurants and attractions!  It’s all right here!

Our biggest attraction, however, is our historic inn, which has been maticulously maintained and newly redecorated to provide the ultimate relaxation experience.  Our 6 beautifully appointed rooms will “take you away” and “take you back” to a time when life seemed so much easier and most definitely more comfortable.  It’s been called “the stay dreams are made of” because of our clean, fresh experience and proximity to everything that’s happening.
