In 2017, we were selected to participate in Historic Kenwood’s 19th Annual Bungalowfest. This tour showcases the architecture, style, & the homeowners of the neighborhood. Approximately 700-800 guests toured our home before we started our conversion to a Bed & Breakfast.
Once again we are happy to announce that we will be participating in Historic Kenwood’s 21st Annual Bungalowfest, but now as a proper Bed & Breakfast.
In November of 2018, we graciously donated our home to “The Grand Mingling”. This
culminating event finished a fundraising series called Dining for Arts, which raised money to
support Historic Kenwood’s Public Art Fund. We were also featured in the Gulfport Gabber
article highlighting The Grand Mingling Event.
The Kenwood Gables Boutique Bed & Breakfast was nominated for “Best Adaptive Re-Use of a Property” in February 2019 by Preserve the Burg aka The St. Petersburg Preservation Society. This volunteer organization has been working since 1977 to secure the preservation, rehabilitation, restoration, and maintenance of important natural, scenic, historic, and architectural sites and structures in the St. Petersburg area. We were honored to have won the award the following month at the formal award ceremony.
Also in March 2019, we participated in two separate home tours. The first, was in support of the Kenwood Artist’s Enclave and the second, was for Preserve the 'Burg.
