Southern Living has named Henderson Park Inn among the top Great Beach Getaways in their latest annual Hotel Collection. Only five locations were chosen, and the staff at the Henderson Park Inn is proud to have been awarded this distinction.
Though the Inn looks more like a New England style retreat, the 35 room boutique hotel is southern at heart, with all-inclusive amenities and breathtaking views.
As the only beachfront hotel in Destin, guests can step off the patio right onto a secluded corner of paradise. The property’s nearly one mile of private beach is located beside a state park, making it a quiet sanctuary for couples vacationing on the Gulf Coast.
The sand is lined with chairs and umbrellas reserved for the Inn’s guests, and staff members stop in hourly to bring guests drinks and snacks. Immediately upon arrival, guests can enjoy a bottle of wine, chocolates and roses in their private suite. After settling in, they can join in the Sunset Toast at 5:00pm, where everyone can mingle and watch the sunset over the emerald water.
Each morning, guests can begin their day with a delicious breakfast including made-to-order omelets and fresh fruit while looking out on the Emerald Coast. Packed gourmet lunches are complementary to Inn guests as well. For dinner, the staff invites you to sample the cuisine at the top-rated Beach Walk Cafe, one of the best fine-dining establishments in Destin.
Every Wednesday, guests can help themselves to a second breakfast at cooking classes with Chef Greg, the head chef at the Beach Walk Cafe. Guests are also welcome to borrow a bike and take a ride down Scenic 98.
To relax after a day of activities and delicious meals, guests can grab a DVD from our collection and unwind in the privacy of their own ocean-facing suite. To book a stay at the only beachfront hotel in Destin, call one of Henderson Park Inn’s reservationists at (866) 398-4432.
