I loved our week at Wicker Inn. We were just a few steps from the beach, through a picturesque arbor. The property was very well maintained, tropical landscape and a nice pool. I loved the peace and quiet - both the Inn and the beach. We were the two bedroom, ground floor with a screened porch. Unit was very clean... More

I cannot say enough good things about the Wicker Inn. Highlights include LIssy's assistance with reservations and check in; charming grounds; comfortable, spotless accommodations; everything you need in the kitchen; free laundry; quiet beach with beautiful sunsets; proximity to excellent restaurants. I was very sad to check out and move on to the next portion of my trip in a... More

We spent five nights over Christmas at Wicker Inn. This is our fifth visit to Wicker Inn and we keep returning because it just works. We got a pleasant surprise on arrival to find that Bougainvillea Cottage has been beautifully renovated since our last visit. New floors, redecoration, refitted bathroom and kitchen and very nice Tommy Bahama soft furnishings. It... More

We booked this stay very last minute...three days before arrival. We had canceled a trip to Mexico because the weather didn't look favorable..we sure lucked out! Weather was incredible, the staff was truly accommodating, and it was another great vacation. PLUS....they are in the midst of upgrading the units, which is always a good thing. It's always clean clean and... More

We have just returned from 8 nights at the Wicker Inn. This was our second stay having previuosly stayed in 2009. The Wicker inn retains its low key 'old Florida ' charm and has benefitted from new owners who have updated the suites and made improvements to the lovely gardens and surrounding area. As a family of four, with 2... More

We always stay on Longboat Key for vacation, but usually at a different resort. Our normal resort was booked so we tried the Wicker Inn. It was the same great location and the beach was just as beautiful, but the cottage was a little small for our liking. It was a 2 bedroom and 2 bath unit. The bathrooms are... More

We love coming back to the Wicker Inn every year...Its like it's own little private oasis, with a lovely pool in the center of the old Florida style bungalows. The units are kept very clean with plenty of beach and bath towels and comfortable bedding. The kitchens are outfitted to make cooking simple meals easy. The Wicker Inn has a... More

I returned to the Wicker Inn after a 4 year hiatus...a much needed freshening up of the Inn made this stay just perfect! Steps to beach and pool...wonderful dining options as close as across the street, Longboat, Sarasota, Anna Maria, Bradenton Beach, etc... A great setting to do everything, or nothing at all. We met longtime guests, and new families... More
