The Perfect Romantic Spring Getaway

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

Henderson Park Inn is a longtime favorite of visitors and locals looking for a quiet and romantic vacation or a quick getaway. Blending modern luxury with rustic coastal charm, the Inn takes you back to another time. This getaway exudes tranquility hard to match and feels secluded and miles away from the bustle of the Emerald Coast while still being centrally located near all the great things Destin has to offer. Did I mention that it’s an adults-only property?  

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

The 36 rooms are designed to make “staying in” completely acceptable or if you want to stay in the area, leave the 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 then claim a spot for two on the powdery 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 flights of fancy.

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 seclusion, have your concierge arrange a private dinner on the beach, pairing fresh caught seafood with glasses of bubbly. Toast to your love by the light of tiki torches when you sign up for the romantic rose-petaled “Toes in the Sand” dining experience!

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 fruity cocktails in hand and mingling with the other guests. Want to take your relationship to the next level? Henderson Park Inn has many different venues which makes it an ideal spot for a honeymoon destination or a quaint vow renewal.
