Last weekend, the hubby and I went on a little weekend getaway to Destin, FL. Kirk is so talented at scoping out new places but I have to admit, I had my doubts about staying at a bed and breakfast I had never heard of. Once we arrived, Henderson Park Inn did not disappoint. I dare say it was the nicest vacation spot I’ve ever visited.

This quaint B & B gave me a relaxing experience I’ll never forget, with hospitality that was second to none. Henderson Park Inn is a part of the Southern Living Hotel Collection. For more information about this, click on the image below.
