“Artist House - A Must Stay At B&B in Old Town Key West”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

The Artist house of Flemming is a perfect spot to spend your time in Key West, Old Town. It is close to Duval street and all the night spots yet far enough away so that you can aborb the artistic and quaint feel for the island. Jo, the owner, and her staff at both the Flemming and Eaton House locations make you feel like you are one of the family, sharing their insights as well as going out of their way to making you feel like a welcomed guest at their home.

This was my second stay at the Artist house and I will look no further for a place to stay when I visit Key West the next time.

Room Tip: I don't think that there is a better room in the house, they are all excellent. We stayed in Si...

Perfect location, not to close and not too far from Duval street - 10/15 walk. Safe location and parking was available at the front of the B&B - we parked there for our whole trip and walked where we needed to. We stayed in the Whitehead room which was located at the back, nice space inside and out, rooms were tastefully decorated, air con and a fridge for keeping drinks cold. The beds are so comfy, you won't want to leave. Perfect - will definitely stay again - are relatives are staying there at the moment due to our recommendation!

I looked at almost every bed & breakfast before choosing the Artist House on Fleming. It was a lovely place to stay! Bikes were available to rent, breakfast was a nice choice of yummy goodies, and it's a few blocks off of Duval so it was nice and quiet. Our Mallory room was pretty with a nice little private porch which went around to the back patio. Loved the front porch as well! We saw a different service person everyday we stayed so really didn't get to meet anyone in particular other than a few guests. I would stay there again or try their sister bed and breakfast!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Mallory Room which was located off of the kitchen, which we were worried about when...

Returned to Key West after many years. Did extensive research on B&B's, and decided to go with Artist House on Fleming. Great choice! Close enough to the action, yet far enough to enjoy peaceful nights. Short walk to restaurants and shops, the pier, Southernmost Beach, and other attractions. Stayed in the "Simonton Room" on the first floor. Very clean and comfortable. Plenty to eat at breakfast with a good variety of choices. Nice area in the back courtyard to relax and enjoy outside eating. Host was very pleasant. Hope to return to Key West next year, and would be happy to stay here again! Would suggest that you speak to your host about optional tours.

Thanks Michael! We're happy to hear that your research paid off! We tend to agree that one of the best things about the house is the neighborhood's proximity to all that Key West has to offer while just far enough away to be relaxing! We look forward to seeing you again next year!

Very nice clean rooms. Very nice and open personal. Very tasty breakfasts with fresh fruits and baking. I would definitely recommend everyone to stay in this hotel. Location is also acceptable. Not so far from main streets but very calm and quite place.

When my daughter told me she was getting married and had decided that the ceremony and all that surrounds it would take place in Key West, I had one thought.... this is going to be madness! I mean, come on. A wedding can be crazy all on it's own. Add in the fact that our family is not adverse to revelry and place us in a party capital...well, look out is what I was thinking. But you know, a funny thing happened. While there WAS plenty of revelry, there was something that helped greatly in keeping everything together. You see, we were fortunate. Just a few blocks away from the epicenter of madness that is Duval street, stands a Bed and Breakfast called The Artist House on Fleming. And this is where we found ourselves headquartered. To say we were taken care of is an understatement. I felt as if we were all fortunate guests in the home of wonderful friends. It was peaceful and quiet. In the morning hot coffee and breakfast were ready when we were. A late afternoon happy hour was thoughtfully provided. In between, Jo, Jessica and Trevor took care of whatever was needed. Always with a smile. They made it look easy but it could not have been. You see, not only did we have every room in the "house", we constantly had lot's of people, including small children visiting. Literally spilling out from the common room and out onto the patio. At times it was crazy( a sick groom, glasses and bikes breaking) and yet, as I said, our "new friends" handled it all with grace. At some point I started to refer to Trevor as King Trevor. Why? Because he was so awesome I found myself wanting to bow in his presence! He was "on duty" almost the entire time of my visit and I am very grateful for his kindness. Lastly, I stayed in the Mallory room which coincidentally is my newly married daughters first name. I loved it. Sweet as can be, just like her!!! Thank you Artist House, can't wait to see you again!!!

Spent some time in July down in the Keys with the BF. We really enjoyed our stay at the Artist House. Breakfast each morning was great and the happy hour at the sister property was fun as well. We also rented bikes from the property and rose around town. They also have a ton of coupons for everything you can think of.
