The Perfect Romantic (free) Getaway: The Henderson Park Inn

From Lifestyle Pubs, with love

As we all know, there’s no shortage of places to stay along the Gulf of Mexico in Florida. But even if you’ve been going to the Gulf Coast your whole life, you may not have experienced a place quite like this. A corner of heaven, the Henderson Park Inn provides the rare chance to truly relax. This intimate bed & breakfast, with just 36 rooms, is perched along the pristine white beaches and crystal-clear water of the Gulf of Mexico, offering authentic Southern hospitality, understated elegance, privacy, and exquisite local flavor at the award-winning, on-site restaurant, Beach Walk Café.

Henderson Park Inn is a longtime favorite of visitors and locals looking for a quiet vacation or quick getaway. Blending modern luxury with coastal rustic charm, the Inn takes you back to another time. This getaway exudes tranquility hard to match and is miles away from the bustle of the Emerald Coast while still being centrally located near all the great things Destin has to offer. 

Each thoughtfully decorated suite is distinctive and features breathtaking views of the Gulf’s emerald green water. The attentive staff caters to your every need from the moment you enter. Your room greets you with romantic music, a bottle of wine and two glasses, a vase of roses, as well as grapes and gourmet chocolates. No detail is overlooked.

The 36 rooms are designed to make "staying in" completely acceptable, or if you want to explore the area, leave the car keys in your room and get around Scenic 98 on a pair of complimentary bikes--it's what the locals do. Grab your picnic lunch provided by the Inn and claim a spot for two on the beach nestled along the Henderson Beach State Preserve -- there’s ample room to find some seclusion. For total pampered privacy in your suite, think sumptuous bedding, a flat-screen TV, plus concierge service for any additional needs (or wants).

Enjoy a romantic dinner without ever leaving the Henderson Park Inn. Dinner on the outdoor terrace at onsite Beach Walk Café is a must, as much for the atmosphere as for the farm-to-table menu, which changes seasonally. For pure privacy, have your concierge arrange a private dinner on the beach, pairing fresh caught seafood with glasses of bubbly. 

Looking for more activities than relaxing at the beach? The Inn’s guests have access to all the amenities next door at the Inn’s sister property, The Henderson, a Salamander Beach & Spa Resort. Amenities include a full-service spa, a fitness center, and two beautiful pools. 

Iconic Gulf sunsets are best viewed from the hotel’s Tiki Bar, with your favorite glass of wine in hand and mingling with the other guests.

Want to take your relationship to the next level? Henderson Park Inn has many different venues that make it an ideal spot for a honeymoon destination or a quaint vow renewal venue.
