We stayed in the Morning Room at the Artist House the last weekend in May / first weekend in June in 2014 for my cousin's wedding at Old Town Manor. Everything we needed and wanted was within walking distance with the exception of the beach my cousin got married on (we wanted to go back on our own). The Artist... More

Beautiful house. Really enjoyed our stay. We stayed in The Sunroom really nice and private. (We were warned about stairs). Next year we will take a room on the main level. Management was really friendly and informative.

Thank you for taking the time to review the Artist House. The Sun room stairs are indeed steep, but worth it. Sunny and cozy, overlooking the garden area. More

This was my second stay at the Artist House...and it was just as great as before. Both my stays were in the Morning room and I never have a complaint. I did notice they had updated the bathroom floor which was a great upgrade. I think when staying here you have to remember this is a historical house and, with... More

We stayed at the Artist House June 16-21. We stayed in The Morning Room on the 2nd floor. It was the perfect size. Had a porch that over looked the garden. Breakfast was good. Location was great, right off of Duval so it was quiet & really close to everything. Staff was very friendly and helpful. We can't wait to... More

We stayed at the Artist House from 6/28-30. Stayed in the Parlor Suite on the 1st floor.. Roomy for KW and Cindy and Laura were very considerate of all of our needs. The place was built in 1890 and is located on Eaton a block and a half from Duval which made it very convenient to shopping, dining and anything... More

We walked to the Artist House upon disembarking from the Key West Express. Laura offered tips on where to eat for vegetarians, and how to get there. (I'm glad we didn't buy the tour they were selling on the boat). My daughter and her husband had the Sun Room at the top of the "Sobriety Test" stairs, while we had... More

There is something for everyone in Key West and our staff is always ready to help you find yours! The Sun Room stairs (aka the sobriety test stairs) can be a bit of a challenge but worth the effort. The Sun Room is very private & cozy. Thank you for taking the time to write your review. More

Great location and Laura at the front desk was a lot of fun! She had stories to tell and a lot of good information to share! Breakfast was amazing - I would have rather downsized breakfast a little and added to the happy hour (cheese/fruit). The haunted trolley was cheesy but a lot of fun. We got to visit Robert... More

Even though we stayed in this house only one night, it was still a great place to stay. Friendly staff and easy to chat with! We stayed in the Anne Suite and even though it gets hot in the bathroom, the bedroom was a nice temperature. Breakfast was well laid out, nice selections, and even better there were Mimosas at...

Outstanding. Loved this house, stayed two nights in the turret room ( which is actually a little noisy), charm in spades. Spacious, comfortable and, legend has it, haunted! Cindy and Laura were sooo helpful and friendly, they should be cloned and hired out to all guest houses. Breakfast was a beautifully presented feast, including champagne, bagels and fresh fruit.
