The rooms were clean and really cool felt like I was in a big tree house. If you like eclectic places this is a place to go to. The owners are great and we can't wait to come back. The views were spectacular especially from the roof top patio.

I needed to find a place to stay for a night close to my rental home which was occupied I did not want a loud cookie cutter hotel. This place is a real gem!!

Okay let's get a few things off table. This is NOT on a sandy beach. This is good beach if you are a turtle. :) The seagrass is thick and while I didn't find the smell objectionable it is seagrass, which is seagrass. This is the mangroves and this is typical ecosystem, environment for this part of Florida. If you... More

I booked this bed and breakfast as part of our Florida Keys road trip. Having first stayed at Islamorada for 2 nights we decided to have our next 2 nights somewhere out of the way and peaceful before heading to Key West. The Barnacle B&B was just that. Located right on the beach front, we had the ocean view room... More

We stayed for three nights in December 2015. The owners were relaxed and welcoming and always ready to help with advice on the area. The breakfasts were delicious always presented to look appealing with something different each morning. We used the hot tub in the evening and the barbeque they have a lovely area to sit around with a communal... More

We had a wonderful and relaxing time at the Barnacle this weekend. Stayed in the cottage, which felt like it was up in the trees! It's an architectural gem. There is no place I've seen like it. Breakfasts were delicious and the dining area in the main house is open air and overlooks the water. We have stayed in various... More

We really enjoyed our visit. When we drove up we both said "how cool"! We invited friends up from KW to go kayaking. They drove up and said..."how cool". There was nothing here like most places we had been before. From the eclectic architecture to the very friendly little Key deer, this place is different. We enjoyed our room, the... More

It's been 5 years since I was here. Read some nasty reviews. Owners Tim and Jane have responded. The place has been shined up...some new appliances...and a hot tub. Probably more, but I was only here 2 days. The breakfasts are huge...and should keep most normal people good until supper. It's a bed and breakfast, on the beach. Simple. Beautiful... More

My husband and I just spent 3 nights at the Barnacle for a short vacation in the Keys. What a special place this is. If you are looking for the Holiday Inn this isn't it, this is a Keys gem that is quiet, small with a beautiful view and delicious breakfast. The rooms are each unique and cozy. Centrally located...

Close to Key West but almost too nice and quiet to leave. Spent 3 enjoyable nights. Very nice breakfasts with other interesting guests. Quiet beach with tiny key deer that came close enough to pet! Our first experience with a B&B. We'll probably do this again.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to the Barnacle! We are a bed and breakfast in Big Pine Key, FL which is about 30 miles from Key West. Our place is peaceful and very quaint. A perfect place to get away from the hustle of everday life, but still close enough to Key West to enjoy a day downtown. We pride ourselves on making your stay the most memorable and relaxing experience that you have ever had at a b&b, with excellent gourmet breakfasts and bbq's in the evening to reflect on the days activities while you watch the sun sink into the Atlantic Ocean. ... more   less
