The holidays are a magical time in St. Augustine, starting with the Nights of Lights on November 23. The entire town is lit up with hundreds of thousands of little white lights–a nod to the single candles that the Spanish used to put in their windows.
Wondering where to stay for Nights of Lights? We might suggest the Bayfront Marin House, a 15 room bed and breakfast located right on the Matanzas Bay in the historic district. This charming bed and breakfast was named one of the Top Ten Places to See Holiday Lights by BedandBreakfast.com in 2012.
In addition, they’re offering a great special for the Nights of Lights season. Stay 2 weeknights at regular price and get a complimentary trolley ride through town–the perfect way to see the lights! You’ll also get a free container of chocolate fudge from Fudge Buckets, as well as a coupon for free hot chocolate at the Sand Castle Cafe (right next to Fudge Buckets, just in case you want to pick up more for folks at home).
Why else might you want to stay there? Consider the following:
Free happy hour every night. Well, that’s not entirely accurate. It’s actually free happy hours, as the inn hosts this social gathering every night from 5-7. What’s so great about it? The homemade sangrias (cleverly called Maringrias), with never-ending pitchers of red and white sangria (or mix them together for a pink that will rock your world).
Southern breakfasts served any time from 8 til 10. The inn has two full-time cooks–Mary Berman and Laverne Baker. Both are born-and-bred southern girls who show their love through their food…and that’s not a bad way to be loved!! (Plus, the breakfasts are on the house!)
Lots of freebies. As if free breakfast and happy hour isn’t enough, this historic inn loads up the amenities. From free wifi, to free parking, to complimentary bikes–staying at the Bayfront Marin House is a great value.
If you need a break from the holiday madness, we suggest you stay at The Bayfront Marin House. It’s the perfect place to stay for Nights of Lights!
