Mike Wieber, owner of the Bayfront Marin House Bed and Breakfast in St. Augustine, plans to share his love of ice cream with guests this summer.

Where to stay in St. Augustine

What makes a porch swing at one of St. Augustine's best bed and breakfasts even better? Home ice cream, of course!

Chocolate is always a favorite--but I love to add something a little unexpected to that.

Summers in the nation's oldest city are a little bit cooler, thanks to this beautiful bed and breakfast in St. Augustine.

Mike Wieber, owner of the Bayfront Marin House, will pull out his ice cream maker and his creativity every week in July, August, and September. On Wednesday nights, he plans to share his latest frosty creation with his guests.

"Who doesn't like ice cream?" asks Wieber. "Add that to our waterfront location, and Florida's warm summers, and you have a great way to end your day in St. Augustine."

Guests will be treated to concoctions like Girl Scout Shout Out (a chocolate ice cream base with marshmallow, caramel, and chunks of Samoa cookies); You're a Peach Fruit Cobbler (peach ice cream with a swirl of caramel and sweet pie crust pieces); Spunky Monkey (a banana ice cream with Oreo sandwich cookies); and Cinnamon Toast Crunch (a cinnamon cake batter base with pieces of homemade snickerdoodles).

"I don't have a plan for what I'm making throughout the summer," says Wieber. "I usually get inspired on Monday or Tuesday--either I have a craving for a particular flavor, or I see great looking produce at the market. Then I start thinking--what could I add to that to make a fantastic ice cream?"

Last summer's staff favorite was Chocolate Cheesecake Crunch (a chocolate cheesecake base with Oreo sandwich cookies), closely followed by Gimme Some More S'mores (a chocolate ice cream with chocolate covered graham crackers and a marshmallow swirl). Wieber says he wasn't surprised by the choices: "As a bed and breakfast owner, I know that chocolate is a surefire hit--and chocolate mixed with cheesecake is even better!"

Ice cream will be available every Wednesday night from July through September. It will be served as part of the bed and breakfast's two-hour happy hour.
