Back in July, my husband and I had the privilege to stay at an amazing bed and breakfast in Destin, Florida called Henderson Park Inn.
My parents have raved about this place for years, but we are just getting around to going.
It’s an adults only inn, and includes a gourmet breakfast, boxed lunch’s, cookies and tea in the afternoon, happy hour, and all the candy bars and sodas you can eat and drink.
Bobby and I stayed in an executive suite, and it was beautiful. When we checked in, there was soft music playing in our room and a rose, bottle of wine, and some grapes were on our bed. You also get turn down with chocolates at night!
The suite included a kitchenette fully stocked with plates and utensils as well as a keurig coffee maker. There were also bottles of water already in the refrigerator!
The executive suites have a king sized bed, as well as a flat screen TV and DVD player (there are free movies to borrow as well).
We had a balcony overlooking the ocean with two chairs and a little table outside.
When we checked in, we were shown around the Inn, it felt so personal and cozy to have someone walk us around. They only have 36 rooms by the way, so it never felt crowded. Also included in the price is free beach chairs, towels and umbrellas. Simply walk to the beach and claim a spot. That was definitely one of my favorite things. No fighting with my beach tent or my own chairs and towels.
The inn borders a state park on one side so it’s a bit removed from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the beach.
From 4-5 every afternoon, there was happy hour out at this tiki hut that overlooks the ocean. They had margaritas, pina coladas, wine, beer, etc. We loved walking up form the beach for a drink before getting ready for dinner.
There is a restaurant that we ate at one night called the Beach Walk Café. It was amazing and I will be posting about it as well.
During the day, the restaurant is home to the amazing breakfast, and where you pick up your boxed lunches and cookies/tea in the afternoon. Breakfast was by far m favorite. Made to order omelets and waffles, apple wood bacon, grits, the juiciest fruit ever, hashbrowns, sausage, you name it. Awesome.
There are also other opportunities for lounging such as hammocks below the upper deck. The chairs/tables are the outside portion of the restaurant. You can eat meals oceanside!
There were also some cozy chairs surrounding a fire pit that was lit at night.
We will definitely be back here next summer, but that seems so far away. Would love to go back sooner, we had an amazing time and have absolutely no complaints. Such an amazing relaxing retreat. If you have any questions about the inn feel free to ask and I will try my best to get an answer!
