A Place Like No Other

We visited HPI for the first time May 12 – 15 to celebrate our anniversary, after checking various reviews and write-ups on the web. This place delivered on everything we expected. First and foremost, the staff is a highlight. We felt welcome from the start and everyone went out of their way to ensure we were pampered.

Greg at breakfast, Natalie(s) at the front desk, and Brad on the deck were all attentive to detail and made us feel like VIPs the entire time. The view from our executive suite balcony was perfect and private. The little touches really matter here – the welcome tray on the bed, unlimited water & soft drinks, the classic decor, fresh flowers, books & magazines for beach reading, a well-manicured and maintained property all around.

Keep in mind this is not your typical B&B but is more like a boutique hotel. We stayed in the main building which provided easy access to the breakfast/eating area, and it was surprisingly quiet although our room was on the 2nd floor just above the main entry to the front desk and restaurant.

From either building you’re just a few steps to the sand, and the private beach chairs & umbrellas are great. We never had any issues securing a great spot on the beach either in the late morning or mid-afternoon. Also the view, water quality, and privacy provided by the adjacent state park make this one of the best and quietest places to relax in Destin. We saw dolphins swimming not even 100 yards out from the beach 2 out of 3 days, which was a nice plus.


I took my Fiancée here for his birthday celebration in April 2011. I was floored at the exceptional romantic ambience at the Henderson’s Bed & Breakfast. It sits right on their private beach. The staff ,cooks, & the housekeeper’s are wonderful always smiling & greeting you no matter how many times they see you.

The food especially the breakfast is out of this world…always fresh & hot… This as far as I am concerned is the best Breakfast in the NW Florida area. I want to say “THANK YOU” to TAMEE who turned out what I would consider to be one of my dear friends now-she helped me out with my reservations all the way to what was happening in the Destin area-she quite up to date with what’s happening in the surrounding areas-very helpful.

I will definitely return here many more times in the future. I live in Panama City never knew this was in my own backyard what a blessing. We felt like we were up in New England or somewhere. Just writing this makes me want to go back NOW… The cleaniness is outstanding & I am extremely particular – normally I take my cleaning bucket when I’m staying in any place because I know it’s not going to meet my standards…this was the FIRST time I didn’t have to use it-I was shocked at the attention to detail from the inside to the outside of this wonderful Inn.

I urge anyone to book up now & have the best time of your life whether it be with your significant other or by yourself or a perfect getaway with the girls or guys weekend, it’s worth it-you will never forget this place & neither will I.

The only thing I didn’t like about this Inn was that when it was time for us to check out I wish I had more time to stay there-but again I WILL RETUEN MANY MORE TIMES, I am telling everyone I know about the Henderson’s Bed & Breakfast Inn, aka “MY OWN SLICE OF HEAVEN IN MY OWN BACKYARD”.

TO ALL THE STAFF & ESPECIALLY: TAMEE…keep up the outstanding work…until we meet again & we will… I Love you all…All my respect & Blessing.

The Henderson (Park Inn) is AMAZING!

The setting, the amenities, and the service are all first rate. You are treated as a VIP by all the staff from the minute you arrive. It is peaceful, private, romantic, and for adults only, which is so hard to find. The breakfasts are wonderful, and the on site restaurant is so convenient, with a wonderful menu. This place has spoiled us, and we will go as often as we can get away.

We LOVED Henderson Park Inn

We LOVED Henderson Park Inn. The staff was extremely helpful and pleasant. We ate at Beach Walk, the onsite restaurant, our first night in Destin and it was perfect. The food was excellent and the view of the sun setting over the Gulf was beautiful. I can’t say enough about the great staff. Tammee gave us some great tips about local favorite restaurants but Beach Walk was by far the best! We also received a free ticket for one spot on the Seablaster Sunset Dolphin Cruise. It was a lovely way to see the coastline and even a few dolphins! The room was clean and comfortable and we enjoyed falling asleep to the sound of the ocean. The Inn was quiet and relaxed and we really enjoyed our stay here. We hope to come back very soon!

Wonderful, Restful, Peaceful…

My husband and I drove from Texas to stay at Henderson Park Inn. I found it on the internet and splurged with an Executive Suite. Cannot say enough about how great it was! Omelets in the morning…boxed lunch in the afternoon…cocktails on the deck at 5:00 and we brought our own wine and cheese for the evenings on the balcony. So peaceful and restful. Thanks Henderson Park Inn for one of the best vacations ever!!!

Dear Tamee,

We had only planned on staying for two nights, but had such a wonderful time, we stayed two more!! Thanks so much for being such a wonderful host! All the staff were so friendly and accommodating. And the food was so delicious, we both ate way too much….

The weather cooperated and we loved sitting out under the umbrella’s on the beach  and swinging in the swing sets.

The tiki bar was a treat!

We look forward to our next trip to Destin and to all the papering we received!!

Loved the flowers, wine, chocolate upon check in… Nice after a long day of travel.

Greg is a gem – great service. We Love Natalie V! I plan to come back for personal and business! I’ve been here in the past, but the new look & staff make it even better than before, very nicely done.

The friendliness of ALL staff was excellent; true southern hospitality. However, Mikie is a a gem and we adored Natalie V.

Perfect for a romantic getaway

The Henderson Park Inn lives up to its reputation. There’s lots of attention to detail, and the staff was fantastic and friendly. The breakfasts were cooked to order and delicious. There’s no substitute for the view since the Inn sits o, n the beach and borders a one-mile stretch of untouched beach. Bottled water, soft drinks, snacks, and even lunch is provided. … April  18, 2011

Awesome in Every Way…

We have stayed with Henderson Park Inn at least 5 times in the past few years and it just gets better every time.

The staff are all about your comfort and are pleasant, helpful and so friendly.

The rooms are fantastic, the bedding, the towels and the view are all awesome.

They do a great beach service and a “free happy hour” each day.

This is a B & B so breakfast is included and is fantastic. Made to order omelets, waffles, eggs, with grits, fresh fruit and lot’s more. They offer a “free” box lunch for the beach, if you are ready to eat again. Then they have an awesome restaurant when you are ready for dinner. There are free soda’s and snacks on site.

You never have to leave the property!

The beach in front of the property is private and this is an adults only B & B, so it is quiet and relaxing. Sleep with your patio door open and enjoy the sound of the ocean (and the views).

Can not say enough about this place; no way will you be sorry, it is so worth every penny. The only negative is that you will not want to leave. Check out their web site to see all of their amenities.   April 14, 2011
