Established in 2008.
The Lee House was originally built on east Gregory Street in 1866 by William F. Lee, an Engineering Officer, serving in the Confederate Army. The Lee House was later purchased in the 1960's by the Pensacola Historical Society and moved into the Historical District at the present Alcaniz and Bayfront location. The house was restored and served as headquarters for the Pensacola Association of Realtors until it was ravaged by fire in 2001. Additional damage was done by Hurricane Ivan in 2004. The house was subsequently raised as it was beyond repair.
In 2007 the owners purchased the property to build the current day Lee House, keeping with the historical value of the property. Prior to beginning construction the Archeology Department at the University of West Florida conducted an excavation of the property and discovered many items from early settlers. Some of these items are on display in the house.

Stayed at this place for 3 nights such an amazing place to stay, it's beautiful and the owners are such nice people. Their food is amazing they know how to cook that's for sure. And the rooms were the best great view of the water and had a porch up stairs and the beds were amazing it was the most comfortable bed Ive ever slept in all the Lenin's were down and I just got the best sleep at this place I wanted to take the whole bed home with me. It was an amazing stay I would stay here again with my husband and friends again we just had such an amazing time together.

I had my wedding reception at the Lee House in September 2012 and can not recommend it enough!
We reserved the entire bed and breakfast (eight rooms) for the weekend and our guests raved. Each room was designed by a different local designer and each is more beautiful than the last! The rooms and gorgeous and comfortable. You feel more like you are in a family's guest room than a hotel. The courtyard and common areas are also beautifully decorated and provided an amazing backdrop for our big day. The back courtyard is so lush and beautiful that we hardly added any decor. It was perfect as-is.
The owner, Norma, gives unmatched service. She is the former owner of a very popular Pensacola restaurant that was in business for over 20 years. She and her husband are the only owners of the Lee House and they have hosted over 150 weddings (I can't recall the exact figure.) She was present at the Lee House for the entire weekend (she even stays the night in a private room in case of emergencies) and constantly worked behind the scenes to make sure our guests were comfortable and our wedding was perfect. She was always available for questions and made us and our guests feel more than at home.
Rain threatened our event, and Norma was on hand with several options (she puts a tent on hold for all events to cover the courtyard) and worked with us to make the best decision. We ended up with sunshine, but I can honestly say that as a bride, I never felt a moment of stress because I knew Norma would take care of the details and make it beautiful.
Not to drone on, but I have to talk about the food. We used The Lee House's house caterer, R&R Fine Catering for our reception and it. Was. Amazing. They worked with us to create our dream menu and prepared it onsite in the Lee House's gourmet kitchen. We got endless compliments and the chef was always available to check in with us (he even made a few last-minute changes with no problems.)
Norma provides breakfast each morning for her guests as well and be prepared to put on a few :) The breakfast is delicious and was also a great time for all of us to sit together in the family dining room and talk. We really enjoyed this time since we were all so busy!
All in all, I highly recommend the Lee House whether you're hosting an event or just looking for a great weekend. They are in a perfect location - the heart of historic downtown Pensacola - surrounded by shops and restaurants, but still just minutes from Pensacola Beach. Norma will work to make your time there perfect and if you choose to hold an event, she will make sure it is your dream come true!

My wife and I stayed two nights in Room/Suite 7 and truly enjoyed celebrating my wife's birthday over our long weekend stay at the Lee House.
Norma was warm and welcoming. My wife and I felt welcome and at home, whether eating breakfast, standing and chatting with Norma in the beautiful kitchen, or relaxing in the living room with a cup of coffee. Norma was very accommodating.
The house is beautiful and new, tall ceilings, spacious rooms. Great location near seville quarter.
We will definitely be staying at the Lee House again.

My wife and I were staying with family while awaiting our closing date on our new house. Having two adults and two kids in a small bedroom for six weeks is stressful to say the least, so I decided to surprise my wife with a night out for just us. I decided to book the Bonifay Suite because of the large jacuzzi tub in the bathroom. My wife has psoriatic arthritis and hasn't been able to soak in a tub since we sold our house six weeks ago. The location and decor was amazing. There are plenty of places within walking distance which is great. After all the walking we did, my wife was excited to hop in the tub and relax. The only problem is that we had no hot water. We were both disappointed (especially since the tub was the only reason I booked this suite), but just assumed maybe everybody else was using the hot water at the time. After our cold shower we went to bed. And I mean bed...not sleep. It turns out the music at The Fish House (right across the street) is very loud on a Saturday night and continues until at least midnight. Oh well, at least there would be a hot shower in the morning. I was wrong...again. We still didn't have hot water in the morning. When I asked the staff why we didn't have hot water they said they've been having issues recently with the plumbing but it was fixed and it's working fine. I guess I have a differing opinion on what constitutes "fine". The location is great but for the price we paid, I think we'll stay somewhere with decent plumbing next time. I would have given three stars if the staff seemed even remotely concerned about this.
