Our History


Our Bed & Breakfast is a historic home in Downtown Daytona Beach. The building was built in 1912 & was originally a church until the early 60's when it became The Coquina Inn – named after the amazing native Coquina Stone it is built from. The Inn was built in 1912 of Coquina Stone from the Tomoka River Basin.

It was designed by Daytona Beach architect S.H.Grove for Dr. Fredrick J. Walters who served as a parsonage for the City’s first Methodist Church for 35 years. In 1947, Ann Christofferson – Dr. Fredrick’s daughter – along with Dennis Height as the manager, The Coquina Inn came to be. In 1947, the Inn was switched from an oil-burning furnace to natural gas and electric.

It has been in operation for more than 30 years with many different Inn Keepers. Thanks to the various owners who made different upgrades, you can experience an interesting eclectic feel to the home.
