If you are looking for a perfect Bed and Breakfast in Key West. You have found it in the Knowles House. The staff was more than friendly and helpful, the rooms immaculate with very comfortable beds. The continental breakfast was over the top with fresh fruits, biscuits and gravy, and scramble mashed dish. This Bed and Breakfast really knows how... More

My husband Pete and I spent 4 nights at Knowles House. We absolutely loved the friendly atmosphere. Christina is so nice - she makes you feel at home. Les and Paul were very nice and had lots of great info to share on things to do etc. Rooms are lovely. Special call out to Troy - he always smiled and... More

My friend and I had never been to Key West so I trusted other reviews when booking. The location is convenient to the west end of the island. However, you can be in the heart of the action within 10 minutes walk. Christina and the rest of the staff were excellent. It felt like visiting friends and family. Perfect if... More

This B&B is very quaint and eclectic with every space available filled with something interesting. Christina, who runs the inn, was wonderful and very accommodating. She went out of her way to make our stay amazing. We stayed in the English Cottage room that opened up onto the pool patio. The room was large and very comfortable and we had... More

Just left after 5 days 4 nights and sorry we had to leave. Christina was like seeing an old friend! Very friendly and helpful giving directions and booking excursions for us. Les was very helpful too! Good breakfast selection daily and homey, clean rooms! Close to everything! We would definitely recommend staying here.

We've stayed here four or five times, so you don't need to know much else. Knowles House is in a perfect location, walking or biking distance to everything, a three-minute walk to the wharf, next door to a great new Caribbean restaurant (Paseo), across the street from the wonderful Old Town Bakery, and a block away from Eaton Bikes. Les... More

Just returned from an amazing 4 night vacation to Key West and The Knowles House proved to be a perfect place to stay. Such a wonderfully cozy and quaint B&B within walking distance to all things Key West. About 4-5 blocks to Duval, which was great for us. We Enjoyed taking a different way "home" each evening to check out... More

Les and Paul really do put great care into making sure that every guest has a great experience at the Knowles House. We stayed in the Country French room, which was cozy, but perfect for the two of us. We looked forward to the morning breakfast and time on the patio. In afternoon, we'd have a glass of wine out...

This was our first trip to Key West (my husband and I). We had a GREAT time and Knowles House was a primary part of that! Christina was an amazing hostess, providing advice and knowledge for us Key West "newbies." We got the 5 night package and it was an awesome deal! The sunset sail was a highlight! Our room... More
