My wife and I spent a couple of days at the Barnacle. We were in the Blue Heron Cottage and it was quirky and unique in a great way! The cottage was clean, pleasant and very comfortable. I have had very limited B & B experience so keep that in mind with the rest of my remarks. I was suprised... More

Beautiful, homey spot with easy access to beaches and Key West. Hosts Jane and Tim made us feel warmly welcomed and helped with snorkeling trips and restaurant reservations. Kayaks, bicycles, and beach chairs and towels are available for guests' use, and with breakfast included, the rates are a great deal. We will definitely be back.

We just visited a week ago and had a wonderful time. This place is so unique and private and Tim and Jane are awesome hosts. We had awesome breakfast and a view right on the beach with deer wandering everywhere. If you want to get away from the normal hectic vacation spots this is the place for you. We will... More

Quiet, peaceful,, stunning views and an incredible breakfast to boot. We were in 2 different rooms because of our last minute drop in, both wonderful, clean, well equipped.. Lots of friendly deer. Hot tub in a gorgeous, relaxing location by the water. Free kayaks, bikes, snorkeling gear. Tim cooks a delicious breakfast, very different everyday. Thank you for an incredible... More

Room was very good. Hosts were excellent and helpful with local info. The Key Deer and nine foot iguanas were incredible. We spent a lot of time on their beach watching fish, birds and the Key Deer came with in a few feet of us. The breakfast was good. Jane and Tim were helpful, interesting, and very kind. It is...

Stayed in the cottage for 5 nights. Very clean and comfortable. A/C worked well as did the wine cooler, refrig and stove. Comfortable bed. On our first night we had 2 other family members with us who stayed in a small room above the atrium. We booked that room at the last minute and the owners were very gracious to... More

We chose to stay at Barnacle B&B following the reviews on TripAdvisor and wanting to be a bit off the beaten track our roadtrip down the keys. Barnacle B&B certainly is a perfect location for a silent getaway, well of US-1 and with very few surrounding homes which meant we spotted lots of Key Deer which we had come to... More

This quaint little spot is a little over a mile off of US-1, but it feels like a world away. When we first arrived, we were greeted by two Key Deer on the beach. While there is no direct access to the beach here, Bahia Honda State Park is only about 8 miles up the road. The Barnacle offers bicycles,... More

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
