A Very Special Romantic Bed and Breakfast Inn located in the heart of St. Augustine's historic district.

Entering the Alexander Homestead, a premier St. Augustine bed and breakfast resort, through the picturesque front porch from the old fashioned garden walkway you can hear strains of classical music and spy a small book of Emily Dickinson’s poetry in the formal living room that is rich with antiques and romance. The homestead has become Bonnie Alexander’s sanctuary, where her guests return time and again to unwind from another time and place and slip into the sensual tranquility of the Alexander Homestead, St. Augustine’s most romantic bed and breakfast.

Welcome to the Alexander Homestead romantic inn, historic bed and breakfast!

Stroll down memory lane to an era held together, as are all eras, by certain accepted values and beliefs, a certain widespread code of behavior.

St. Augustine romantic inn, Alexander Homestead Bed & Breakfast, pays tribute to America’s Golden Age, the Victorian years. This era was one of contrasts and contradictions, asking that the passionate and the proper, the sensual and the sentimental exist side by side.

AlexanderHomesteadPic9Mixing family heirlooms with a treasured collection of St. Augustine antique furnishings, Bonnie’s flair for decorating and homemaking are evident. Her St. Augustine bed and breakfast home has its own secret life that beautifully combines the “passionate and the proper, the sensual and the sentimental”. An early morning coffee service awaits at 8:15 am outside the bedroom doors. By 9:00, breakfast is served in the formal dining room. “Everything I prepare is first class…eggs from the chicken farm, fruits from the fresh market, my homemade granola and endless entrées, like Country French apple casserole, green chili egg puff over tostados or warm homemade almond syrup drizzled over French toast”.

Lady Grace – Romance & Opulence
Lady Grace is an inviting and romantic retreat. Sumptuously furnished, it is elegant without being grand.

A quaint writing alcove greets you as you enter the room – serving as both a quiet nook to journal and also a buffer to the rest of the home. This first floor room welcomes the morning sunlight and is dressed with a lavishly rich, hand painted emerald walls, beautifully draped curtains and Victorian wrought iron king bed. Lady Grace beautifully recalls the 19th century charm.

The private bath embraces an exquisite jewel-box richness which is the hallmark of the opulently furnished bathroom including a whirlpool bathtub (and shower). The bronze mirrored wall behind the whirlpool reflects the romantic mood created by the cascading flower arrangement.

Victoriana – a large and fashionable sanctuary, a symbol of power and plentyAlexanderHomesteadPic10
You may choose Victoriana, which has an impressive bedstead with a built-up, crested headboard of a type particularly favored by wealthy tycoons who felt it invested their private chambers with a suitable grandeur. As the bathing facilities were important in that era, experience the opulence of a grand oval tub, lit only by candlelight, with you (and perhaps your loved one) encased in soft, creamy bubbles. Or, if you prefer to wash while standing up, a separate shower will add to your comfort.

Either way you might pause before the fireplace once again before you open the French doors leading onto the private screened porch to listen to the final night sounds.

AlexanderHomesteadPic12Alexandria – spells excitement and promise
Anticipating the oversized whirlpool Jacuzzi for two after a full day of sightseeing you can almost feel the energizing effects of the Herbal bath grains. Perhaps you have Champagne chilling, the chandeliers are dimmed and a soft light emanating from the fireplace. As you drift off to sleep in the beautiful queen size hand carved French bed in the softest sheets imaginable and down pillows you surely feel you have slipped back in time to America’s Golden Age of Grandeur.

The elegance and luxury of the Alexandria encompasses you the moment you step into this bedchamber. The Queen canopied bed, marble topped night stands and magnificent chandelier invite visions of grandeur. As you glance further around the room, you glimpse the bombe chest and lace curtains flowing in a gentle breeze at the French doors as they open out onto your own very private screened porch with rockers and love seat – the antiqued fireplace ready to be lit by the soft glow of a wood fire or, in the summer, candles.

Whatever your agenda is in St. Augustine, the Alexandria bedchamber makes it all worthwhile as you truly feel like Royalty.

AlexanderHomesteadPic13Sweet William – embodies the Victorian taste for magnificence in its preferential treatment of the elaborate use of fabrics.
Like other rooms in the Victorian home, the bedchamber was intended to be something of a testament to the domestic creativity of the 19th century woman. Sweet William captures the imagination of being a princess (or prince) in fairyland, as you repose under the magnificent blue and white French toile half canopy, in the elegant king panel bed. Adjoining your bedchamber and bath is a small sitting room occupied with an East lake desk and loveseat.

Enjoy your coffee on the airy morning porch as you listen to birds sing and plan your day’s activities. For complete privacy you have your own staircase and entrance.

Queen Anne – Tastefully Decorated with Hints of Romance & Seductiveness
Perhaps, the Queen Anne bedchamber is more your style. With its lacy bedspread so lovingly hand crocheted and moire swags to frame the high four poster bed set amid the rose garden rug you truly experience the grandeur and intimacy of a regal era.

AlexanderHomesteadPic5

After refreshing yourself in the large claw foot tub (with shower added for your comfort), enjoy the final sunset moments in large old fashioned rockers or snuggle together in the wicker swing on your private porch.

Of course the Victorian ambiance and lacy doilies once again catch your eye as you step through the lace curtained French doors.
