We have schedule a day of maintenance for the pool on Monday, February 27th, so unfortunately the pool area will not be open on Monday (only). We appreciate your patience while we perform this necessary repair. We plan to reopen the pool on Tuesday, once the proper chemical levels have been achieved. Because the heat pump will be turned off for the entire day Monday, it may take a little longer for the water to achieve its normal heated temperature. We will be working to get you back to swimming enjoyment as soon as possible.
While Hurricane Matthew was kind to us at Beachers Lodge, we did suffer some wind damage to our roof. We will begin work on the oceanfront building’s roof on Monday, February 27th. We will be working on the north end of the building only. You may observe some equipment on property for the first few days of this project. Ultimately, this project should be relatively mild and we do not expect any major disturbance for our guests and visitors. We expect the work to be accomplished in the span of a couple weeks.

Celtic clans from around the world show their ancestral pride, Highland games athletes demonstrate their mind-boggling strength, the St. Patrick’s Day Parade marches through the streets of the Oldest City’s Historic District, and vendors offer up Celtic cuisine and hand-made crafts.

You’ll never forget Nights of Lights in St. Augustine… great reason to stay with us from November 19 – January 31, 2017. Nights of Lights traditionally begins the Saturday before the Thanksgiving holiday. This year, Nights of Lights “turns on” November 19, 2016, and continues through January 31, 2017.
During Nights of Lights, St. Augustine glows with holiday magic – from the ground to the rooftops. Selected by National Geographic as one of the ten best holiday lighting displays in the world, St. Augustine’s Nights of Lights feature millions of tiny white lights that create a magical atmosphere in the Nation’s oldest city.
Tracing its origins to the Spanish tradition of displaying a white candle in the window during the Christmas holidays, the spectacular lighting reflects the city’s 451-year history and illuminates the beautiful setting for lasting holiday memories.
The best way to enjoy the popular holiday lighting display is to park in the Historic Parking Facility located off Castillo Drive and enjoy the sights in one of many different ways – on foot, by bicycle or pedicab, on the Old Town Trolley or the Ripley’s Red Train, or by horse and carriage. This can be as intimate as a romantic stroll or a fun adventure the whole family can enjoy.
Hurricane Matthew was very kind to Beachers Lodge. We are back on property and the rooms are great. We are cleaning up the outside, but you are welcome to come stay with us!
