A Brevard County Secret: Port D'Hiver Luxury Bed & Breakfast

    By Terry Ward

    Brevard County is known for a lot of things. The East Coast county not far from Orlando is home to the nation's space program at Cape Canaveral , as well as the birthplace of surfing sensation Kelly Slater (Cocoa Beach ).

    And now Brevard County is striking a chord with luxury seekers, with a very special luxury bed and breakfast in Melbourne Beach .

    The Port d'Hiver Bed & Breakfast was recently awarded a Mobile AAA Four Diamond Award (it's the only inn in Brevard County to be given the honor).

    Rates start from $200 per night, and include a full breakfast served on your porch or in the dining room, as well as nightly wine receptions with light hors d'oeuvres.

    Located right across from the beach, four of the inn's 11 rooms have ocean views (request the Sunrise or Ella Belle rooms or the Carriage House suite for the best views).

    Other perks:
    • Complimentary beach cruisers
    • Complimentary soft drinks and snacks 24 hours a day
    • Swimming pool
