You'll soon find yourself slipping into the leisurely pace of the historic district of Saint Augustine, Florida, the nation's oldest city.
A beautiful brick home was constructed at 52 Charlotte Street in 1918 for a local attorney, Levi Nelson. It was built at a time when America was riding the wave of an economic high. The Great War (WWI) had been won. Modern wonders, born of the Industrial Revolution, were creating a more leisurely, carefree lifestyle in Florida. It was a lifestyle that would soon become known as the "roaring twenties." The spirit of those good times comes to life as soon as you walk into the Inn on Charlotte.
Attention to detail inside and out, during its 2003 restoration, and the use of quality antiques and grand reproductions, have captured the feeling of luxury in our bed and breakfast that denotes an era of prosperity. We think Levi Nelson would have approved of the cable TV, wireless internet access, and the many other modern B&B amenities.
