It had been a couple years since our last vacation and we were looking for a quiet and relaxing place to enjoy a much needed vacation. What we got was so much more than we had expected. Hemingway House turned out to be just what the doctor ordered. First, the place is just beautiful. It sits overlooking water and each... More

Great welcome. Wonderful room and a peaceful, relaxing visit. My husband and I booked two nights at Hemingway House to finish off a week's break in Florida. The standards are very high and Marlene is extremely welcoming and helpful. I would not hesitate to recommend a stay here.

Marlene welcomed me into her home like an old friend and was more than happy to help me plan my trip, lend me bicycles and even made home made strawberry jam for her guests. She has thought of everything and all of the guests were marveling at her kindness. The home is stunning, the warm salt water pool was a... More

After reading all the wonderful reviews about Hemingway house, my boyfriend and I were thrilled for our weekend on Marco Island. It was nothing short of amazing. The house was impeccable condition and incredibly clean. The view was beautiful looking off the pool. As soon as we arrived we immediately felt at home at Hemingway house. Marlene showed us to...

I had the absolute pleasure of staying here for three nights with my husband. So nice to get away from the busy hotels. The view from the Bimini View Room was spectacular and we enjoyed the balcony thoroughly. The room was kept spotless and was incredibly comfortable. Marlene was very helpful and accommodating. She made our stay in Marco even... More

The innkeeper Marlene was gracious and attentive at our arrival. The room was small with what she described as "a European bathroom", which was actually a bathroom in a closet. The clear shower faces the room...not very good for modesty. There was a room key issue at the onset, which proved to be a bigger problem later. Since the new... More

I don't enjoy writing indifferent reviews but we were genuinely looking forward to this break, especially after reading so many positive reviews and speaking to the owner, and it really did prove more than a little hit and miss. We stayed in the somewhat optimistically named 'Dolphin View Room'. It's a lovely room with a pleasant shared terrace outside and... More

We stayed 4 nights here during a recent family vacation. The first day we arrived happened to be my son's birthday. Marlene went out of her way to get a birthday cake for him, along with a few small gifts. We were very impressed with her thoughtfulness and generosity. We stayed in the room on the main floor, off of... More

We were very fortunate to have found this property. We spend three days at this delightful inn. The hospitality was one of the best we ever encountered. Marlene went out of her way to be helpful and to find us what we were looking for in the area. The rooms were clean, atmosphere cozy with a beautiful view of the... More
