My husband and I feel very fortunate to have found this "perfect" place to get away from our winter woes! Finally retiring, after a lifetime of teaching, we discovered a place that feels like we were just meant to be there. Our room, the Tree House, was very comfortable and having the kitchenette was great for keeping drinks and snacks.... More

This historic inn is worth going to as an end destination You are greeted by the friendliest hosts, Susan and Chuck and wine and chocolates. And then there is the rest of the experience. Heated pool, comfi beds, bathrobes, kitchenette (in SunDeck room), tasty breakfast, beautiful furnishings and stained glass, beach chairs, bikes, coolers, and more. The Venice area is... More

My stay at the Banyon House was wonderfull! Susan and Chuck made me feel right at home. Loved the Tree House room with the kitchenette and deck area. Can't talk highly enough about the fantastic breakfasts that Susan prepaired for me. I was especially grateful that they offered beach chairs, umbrella's, cooler, ice, a beach bag and the sharks tooth... More

We were treated to a night here for our anniversary and what a treat! We were surrounded with charm and beauty. Our room, The Palm Room, was spacious with a small kitchen area that included all you need; a refrigerator, microwave, coffee pot, dishes and most importantly a wine opener. We had a lovely, good sized deck right next to... More

My husband and I stayed at the Banyan House again during our June trip to Florida; we travel to Florida twice a year on vacation and always make the Banyan House our home base. Chuck and Susan McCormick, the Banyan House owners, are very welcoming and are great resources of things to do in Venice. This time we brought two... More

This was my first time at the Banyan House, and words just can't express how much I enjoyed my time here. The careful detail and thoughtfulness that the innkeepers, Chuck and Susan, have put into taking care of their guests and the house itself made my stay the best experience I have ever had in a hotel/inn/B&B. I feel like... More

From the moment we pulled up to the Banyan House, we knew we were in for a special treat. Susan and Chuck do everything within their power to make you feel welcome and at home. We had the pleasure of staying in the Treehouse room which was beautifully decorated not to mention the special touches like the fresh flowers in... More

I stayed here at this beautiful house for one night and was so pleased with how clean and well maintained the home was. The owners were very pleasant and have done some lovely restoration and added unique features to their house that translates into a very unique experience for the people staying there. Enjoyed breakfast in the sunny dining area... More

We can't say enough about this fabulous place and about the owners Susan and Chuck. Perfect in every way; accommodations, cleanliness and gourmet breakfast to name a few. Many personal touches at the “Mansion” made it an exceptional memorable stay. The property is a short walk or bike ride to the beach, restaurants, pubs, shops and bike trail. When you... More
