“Very "Ernest Hemingway-ish"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2012

A very rare, classy, upscale hotel, bar, and dining room. The menu is excellent with the place having just reopened after significant renovations. All of the offending deteriorating structure normally present in a hundred year old historical building has been lovingly and stylishly replaced. Impeccable facilities with an extreme attention to detail for crispness and preservation. The place is beautifully restored and cleaned and has surprised some who thought that it could not! Well, if you are looking for a bit of home-like atmosphere that is just a few minutes from the Florida Keys, and moments away from the Florida Everglades. This hotel/bar/restaurant seems perfect for those who want the real home-type personality of Southern Florida with a hint of upscale style and taste brought from the times when rail was just being established in Southern Florida. The staff is extremely friendly and maintains the highest degree of professionalism in every thing they do. The antiques are pretty cool too!

Room Tip: Just to add a bit of interesting data... there are thirteen rooms! Yes.... it has been said that Mr...

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2012

We stopped one night before exploring the southern everglades and enjoyed this so much we returned late for a second night. As it was under new management the restaurant and bar were not open but there were local restaurants around and we had good advice and two great evenings with local flavour. Needs a little handyman to work out all the bits which need fixing in the rooms we stayed in but I have to say the new owners were keen. It would be good to see the place flourish and develop a trade supporting the tourist industry in this part of Florida. We found lots to do although this wasn't easy to discover in advance from the national parks sites. Could have stayed longer.

The experience was as good as it gets. The management is competent and friendly, the decor lovely, all new and spotless. The ambiance is Old Florida with pictures and objects from the early 1900s. An unexpected bonus is the charming small town of Homestead, including rebuilt downtown area, and great attractions, restaurants, etc.
