My friend and I had an exquisite time a few weeks ago at "The Cypress". Charming hostesses! Breakfast was GREAT...had a grand time visiting with the other guests. The owners are retiring after 20 years. It will be truly missed. I was ready to book for my next trip to the Sarasota area!

Charming old home full of antiques; superb service; the owners have thought of every detail. Homemade goodies at happy hour, chatting w/ interesting guests made for lovely evenings. Tragic that they are closing at the end of March! Go now!

Spending over a week at the Cypress, gave us the luxury of sitting on the front porch overlooking Sarasota Bay, walking to nearby restaurants, enjoying the wonderful hospitality of owners, Nina and Vickie, and the most fabulous breakfasts that I have had anywhere. We brought our 8-month old dog who was welcomed in the Mango Suite, a peaceful and quiet... More

This was a return trip to Sarasota after over 5 years. We'd stayed at The Cypress previously and it was a return destination for us. We feel pampered there, with the warm welcome from the owners and staff, the comraderie encouraged among the guests, the comfortable beds with luxuriously soft sheets, the food service on family heirloom silver and china,...

One of our better choices in B&B's that we have experienced around the country. The Inn Keepers are wonderful folks, and are totally customer-centric. Charming rooms, wonderful food, perfect location to enjoy all that the Sarasota area has to offer. Thanks Nina and Vicki for such a memorable experience at The Cypress.

We spent New Year's Eve at the Cypress. The owner and the staff were friendly, helpful and welcoming. The location couldn't be better as we were within walking distance of our restaurant, Indigenous and close to the bay to watch the fireworks at midnight. Our room, the Martha Rose Suite, was quaint, full of antiques and yet still spacious. A... More

My wife and I stayed at the cypress bed and breakfast for her birthday for two nights. What a wonderful bed and breakfast this place is. The charm of the house is overflowing, and the hosts and staff of the Cypress Bed and Breakfast are so warm and inviting, as if I had stayed over my mother's house. I loved... More

My wife and I stayed at the Cypress for 2 days. What an idyllic place! Sandwiched between the condos, this place is an oasis of calm. LOVED the happy hour and the whole quality of the place. Just a skip across the road is the Bayfront Park, with easy access to the Downtown area. I couldn't thing of anything more... More

My fiancé booked a weekend getaway to The Cypress for my birthday weekend. It was the second time I've stayed in a B&B and I found the stay to be above my expectations. I'm usually a hotel person, but the welcoming owners made the experience top notch. The room we were in, Kathryn's Garden, had a nice view out the... More

A lovely house on the waterfront, walking distance to down-town, surrounded by tall condo blocks. Easy parking, friendly attentive owners, fabulous breakfast, comfortable eclectic rooms. Even the other guests were interesting (we all chatted during breakfast.)
