We drove the entire keys to find a nice, quiet spot. Key West was a bit too rowdy for us, we're more into nature/camping, so Big Pine Key was right up our alley. We called the barnacle and they had a cottage open for that night. We arrived about an hour after calling and were blown away with the room,... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the Barnacle. We decided to stay in the atrium room for two nights on a whim during our weeklong trip to the keys. What I love most about this place is the incredible peace and quiet, the amount of nature, and the ease of staying on the property all day with plenty of things... More

Found this wonderful place on booking.com, what a find. Rustic charm and probably the most tranquil laid back place we've ever stayed at. Our host Eric was exactly what we expected, laid back and chilled and did a fantastic breakfast every morning and then let us get on with our day. We sat on the beach watching wild Key Deer... More

The Barnacle has a unique funky design that I looked forward to seeing. And it is a great place to see wildlife including frequent visits from key deer. It is right on the Atlantic side of Big Pine Key onthe beach. This turned out to be a curse. The beach is mucky and covered with stinking sulfurous seaweed. The prevailing... More

Both son and father made me feel welcome. I was able to use the free Kayaking for hours in the morning. When I could not figure out the two remotes for the TV. They instantly replaced it and gave me a lesson. No this is not a french restaurant. Breakfast is a cooked basics, just like home. Coffee, orange juice,... More

The Barnacle B&B has only 4 units and is very private. The rooms are large and comfortable. It is right on the water and provides kayaks, bikes, hammocks and real relaxation. The deer come right up to the place and nestle in the seaweed. This place feels very different then others in the Keys. Maybe like the Keys felt years... More

My wife and I visited at the end of September and absolutely loved the place. We arrived late at night and the owners left us a key and a note saying that they had upgraded our room for free. Nice location on the beach, clean rooms, and good breakfast. We took their glass bottom kayak out one day, and little... More

The Keys are all about sky, water and nature, the way it used to be without all the neon and glitz that some of our beloved islands have become. Our daughter gave us a get away night after 3 days of crazy conch grandkids running around. Way off US One, quiet, tranquil Long Beach Estates is nothing but nature and... More

We stayed at Barnacle one night. We called the same day as a last minute idea. We arrived later in the day and they had left us a nice note on the door. The view from the main balcony is amazing. The rooms were really clean and the bed confortable. They made us a simple but good breakfast. It is... More
