“Great way to start vacation in the Keys”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

We spent 2 nights at Bay Harbor Lodge before heading to Key West. We have spent many years in Key West and have never stopped in the upper Keys before heading further south. We loved our stay, it was very relaxing, very clean, and the property was beautiful. We stayed in a cottage near the water and loved the view. It was a perfect start to our vacation, we will look forward to staying there again.

Room Tip: The rooms closest to the water are great.

This hotel was small and gave personal service. Although we opted for a budget room, it was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed, a fridge, coffee maker and cups, plates etc. You could use the BBQ outside the room which had a picnic area. The grounds of the lodge were beautiful and there was a real feeling of tranquility about the place.

The staff were especially helpful, thanks to the lady who advised me to take the Florida Turnpike back up to Orlando - it made our return journey a lot more pleasant, thanks also to the gentleman who advised on local nail bars - my manicure is still holding up a week later!

I would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Our room was basic and small, next time I would book an efficiency or a cottage.

My family and I sincerely enjoyed our time at Bay Harbor Lodge. The property is beautiful and well maintained. There is plenty to do while at the same time being peaceful and laid back. The unit that we stayed in (#6) was clean and modern. Even though ours was not directly bay front, we had beautiful views of the water and the property. The other families and couples there were extremely friendly and kind to our 3 children (ages 1, 5, and 7). The staff was friendly and attentive. There were several other families visiting, but many couples as well. It was definitely a place I could see enjoying either as a family (as we did) or for a quiet get a way for a couple, single, or group of adult friends. The pool was warm and comfortable. All in all, a wonderful stay (we were there for 6 nights). I highly recommend it!

Just returned from 12 days at the Bay Harbor Lodge in Key Largo! The cottage we rented was newly renovated with full kitchen (including oven!), updated furnishings and a very comfy bed! We enjoyed the morning scones and quiet atmosphere. We will definately be back!

Room Tip: Rooms closer to the water are worth the price!

Thoroughly enjoyed the ten days of comfort, solitude, relaxation and fabulous sunset views off our dock, all staff excellent, clean and comfortable cottage, fully equipped kitchen, we hated to leave and return to reality of cold Northeast winter weather. Looking forward to a return next winter season. We highly recommend this location for all.

The Bay Harbor Lodge exceeded my expectations! Absolutely serene and georgous. The groundskeeper has done an amazing job at maintaining an exotic, clean and neat area (and I agree with the comment that the photos don't do the place justice- so I am loading my own). The pool was wonderful, and very warm. The cleaning ladies are super sweet and helpful, and did a really good job at cleaning and keeping our cozy room. The staff is super accomodating and welcoming, and coffee/tea & daily home-made scones are provided by the lovely owner every morning (try the key lime and chocolate strazberry).
The location is perfect for those seeking solitude, but want to be close enough to get to miami or south the Key West (or not!). I was perfectly happy swimming and tanning on the lovely beach overseeing a great view of the Keys!
This place comes highly recommended and I will certainly return. My husband and I had a lovely first year anniversary thanks to this wonderful place. Whether for a romatic weekend, a week with the family, or a trip with some friends, the Bay Harbor Lodge is delightful and surprizing treasure. The rooms are wonderful and there's a choice of different sorts of accomodations available. We stayed in a small one bedroom, which was actually larger and a bit more upscale than I expected.
Overall, two thums up!

The photos don't do this place justice. This is an absolute gorgeous perfectly private peaceful place! We stayed in one of the waterfront cottages right in front of the water and the views were indescribable. We had our 5 year old son with us and he loved it also! This is a great place for families or couples who don't want to be at a crowded resort.
