When we set out to open our historic inn back in 2013, we executed on our vision to reimagine the 21st-century B&B. Our goal was to provide the ultimate getaway; complete with the finest accommodations that would make guests want to stay forever. Or at least come back often! Today, we’re happy to say that the Black Dolphin Inn does all of this and more.
Located on the banks of the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway, the Black Dolphin Inn is a one-of-a-kind vacation destination in New Smyrna Beach, Florida. Our award-winning boutique and breakfast inn is unique in design, amenities, and cuisine, beckoning discerning travelers from far and wide. Fourteen rooms and suites provide a peaceful escape, and a private boat dock and Lounge Bar are available right onsite. Warm breezes, palm trees, and endless water views complete the tranquil ambiance you crave.
Our AAA Four-Diamond property is also convenient to the best activities and attractions in the area. Spend a day strolling the Canal Street Historic District, or visit the galleries and restaurants on Flagler Avenue. When the sun begins to set, head back to our inn for a glass of wine and enjoy watching the dolphins from your own private balcony. Whether it’s a romantic trip for two or a fun weekend with friends, the Black Dolphin Inn guarantees an unforgettable getaway.
