St. Augustine, FL (PRWEB) June 29, 2013
The Bayfront Marin House, a waterfront bed and breakfast in St. Augustine, FL, will celebrate 10 years as a bed and breakfast on July 4, 2013.
"The Bayfront Marin House is actually three houses," says Sandy Wieber, owner of the award-winning St. Augustine inn. "And its history is much more than just 10 years old. But we've only been a bed and breakfast since 2003, when a local businessman converted the Villa de Marin apartments into the beautiful bed and breakfast that graces the waterfront now."
Wieber and her husband have owned the inn since September 2010.
The bed and breakfast's beginnings go back to the eighteenth century. The oldest part of the house was built in 1790, and is made out of coquina, a shell-filled composite found on Florida's first coast. Coquina was used to build other structures in the area, most notably the Castillo de San Marco, the fort that protected St. Augustine for hundreds of years.
The front of the St. Augustine lodging, facing the Matanzas Bay, is two Victorian-era houses, one built in 1880 and one in 1860. Early in the twentieth century, the three houses were connected to create the rambling building that is seen today.
"We're very proud of the history of our property, and we've worked hard to maintain the integrity of the structures, while making sure that every modern amenity is available to our guests," says Wieber. "We've updated the rooms with Jacuzzi tubs, electric fireplaces, and large luxurious showers, while still keeping the charm of the old buildings."
Bed and breakfast staff will host a small "birthday" celebration for their guests on July 4, held during the inn's regularly scheduled happy hour.
