The male owner exhibits deplorable customer service skills. When attempting to schedule on the website for a 2 bedroom 'cottage' it directed us to a 'sister property' of which we reserved. Upon arrival, the male owner advised the keys were under the mat, we advised they were not. He then advised that we reserved at his 'other' property. He has... More

We have just returned from an enjoyable month spent at this resort. It is located right on Lemon Bay and consists of 6 "cottages", and a large house. It has a dock that you can fish off of and plenty of room to roam around with plenty of outside chairs to lounge in. There is also a heated pool enclosed... More

We stayed at this resort for a week while traveling in Florida on vacation. We stayed in cottage number three and found it to be quite comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes, pots, pans, etc. and the bed was very comfortable. It is in a good location and there is a walkway out over the water which was... More

Our family takes a vacation every year and we just love staying at Englewood Lighthouse. There's not too many places that offer everything you could ask for in one place, you have a pool, your right on the water and close to town. And did I mention - the owners are great!! I would recommend this place to all my... More

Quiet and quaint. True Old Florida style. Room was clean and well equipped with all the necessities. We really enjoyed our stay. Only negative observation was that the property could have been a bit better maintained. Would stay again and appreciate that they have pet friendly cottages available.

I had to write this @Queenbeetnick with her review below in Dec 2012. This place we have stayed at before.[2004] Lisa and Larry were great..they bent over backwards for us. Lisa knew I had a problem with excema, so she put in a dishwasher for my damaged hands. I suggested they get rid of the full size beds and put... More

The owner was friendly. There is a wharf on the property right on Lemon Bay. We stayed in cottage #1. It is a little rustic, and a bit dusty, but we are ok with that. But...there was a very strong overwhelming odor in the place that wouldn't quit. We couldn't figure out if it was wet dog smell or cigarette... More

KLELB, Owner at Englewood Lighthouse Resort, responded to this review

We made an exception for this guest and allowed them to stay one night. We have a two-night minimum and try not to go after the motel traffic. For starters, this guest kind of had a chip on her shoulder from the get-go. When she first pulled up and caught me on property in the middle of a task, she... More

We found the Lighthouse Resort by accident and so glad we did! Larry and Lisa were very accommodating and the cabins are so nice, clean and have everything you would want or need. We will see you again next year :)

Our family just returned from another great trip to Florida. For the past several years we have stayed at the Englewood Lighthouse Resort and we are always very pleased. Larry & Lisa are friendly and always willing to help with anything we need. The facility consists of cottages that sit on Lemon Bay. The cottages are older, but are extremely... More
