It is believed that the Beach Drive Inn was built around 1910 by Perry Snell, one of St. Petersburg's earliest and most famous developers. In 1919, the property was purchased by Stella and Aymer Vinoy Laughner who made it their family home for many years. After a series of events, real estate promoter Gene Elliot decided a hotel should be built across the street. He thought the name, "Vinoy" was beautiful, and the Vinoy Park Hotel was born. Now known as Renaissance Vinoy Hotel, the hotel is a landmark in St. Petersburg and the Vinoy name is legendary. Their early efforts to develop St. Petersburg have made it one of the most visited cities in the world.


The historic ambience and beautiful location of the Beach Drive Inn Bed & Breakfast make it the perfect destination for a honeymoon or a romantic escape. The rooms at the inn are stunning and feature great amenities – bathrobes, private jacuzzi tubs, and stunning views add a touch of luxury to your St. Petersburg getaway.
