Just got back from a weekend in New Smyrna Beach and the delightful Anchor Inn. Everything was perfect - friendly hosts, beautiful room, delicious breakfasts, hot chocolate and cookies. We have found a new home away from home and can't wait to come back!

Beautiful place. We were made immediately welcome by owners Ellen and Marie having arrived early, and were invited to a charity dinner they were hosting which unfortunately we couldn't attend. We booked one night prior to departing from Sanford airport, wish we had booked longer. We had the Beautiful Butterfly Room. Soft drinks and water were supplied in the large... More

We traveled to New Smyrna Beach to attend a funeral, and we selected the Anchor Inn based on its convenient location to the venues we would visit. Our request for early check in was honored immediately so we were able to unpack the car before going on. The room was spacious and spotless and we took advantage of the 24-hour... More

Spent July 4th at Anchor Inn Bed & Breakfast. The room was cute, clean and the bed was very comfy. Outside temps "felt like 110" but inside the temperature was very cool and extremely comfortable, especially with a furry kid. I was pleased to see the tables on the deck area were set up with bug spray available, a lighter,... More

I recently spent three nights here and was absolutely charmed. Two sisters, Marie and Ellen, own and run the inn. They are just lovely. After driving from CT to FL in two days the glass of wine and the treats for my dog were just what we needed. The rooms and bathrooms are clean and spacious. The inn is within... More

Just returned from a short stay in the Anchor Inn, great little B&B. The sisters who run the Inn could not be more helpful and accommodating . The room was great, the breakfast first class. Only a short ride to the beach and all the bars and restaurants .

The innkeepers were friendly and efficient, the breakfast was to die for (we usually eat cereal at home) and included fresh baked goods, fresh fruit, omelets and quiches...terrific coffee. Very pleasant stay. And their soap was even a wonderful treat--clear and fragrant!

Stayed here recently while on business in the area, and I was so glad I found it. What a nice change from staying in regular hotels all the time.

Breakfast was always quick and tasty. Ample parking, very large bathroom, very clean, comfortable linens. Lush surroundings make you feel away from everything.
