Cabbage Key is a 100 acre island located five miles off of Pine Island, FL in the Pine Island Sound. The Inn, built in the 1940's by the family of Mary Roberts Rinehart, now houses our famous Restaurant & Dollar Bill Bar and six guest rooms. The rooms in the Inn are all different with old Florida charm - they do not have TVs, phones, or refrigerators. We have seven cottages on the island, ranging from a 1 bedroom/1 bath cottage to 3 bedroom/3 bath waterfront units. All cottages have refrigerators, televisions (no cable) and coffee makers, some units have full kitchens. Our restaurant is open seven days a week and serves breakfast, lunch & dinner. If you want to relax on a beach...we do not have one here. But, Cayo Costa is a close kayak or boat ride away. This is a great retreat to discover "Old Florida", relax with a book, fish from our docks & watch the boats go by.

First time visiting Cabbage Key. Toured the island and the four of us had a great lunch. Marcie waited on us and was friendly and professional. Our food was great. We had burgers, a ruben, and blackened Mahi Mahi. We all enjoyed our meals and visit. We will be back.

Stopped in for lunch while fishing. Meal was excellent, but what was even better was Katie S! She performed outstandingly well in the face of adversity, all of which was out of her control. Yay Katie S! Job well done.

Yes. .I second the 2 posts above. Very responsive and pretty sure they will accommodate. Must ask them though.

You have a few options that would work well from renting a small boat from the dockmaster out at Cabbage Key to hiring a local guide to run you over and back. Tropic Star Cruises on Pine Island has a boat that takes passengers out to Cayo Costa on a scheduled excursion 7 days a week. Four Winds Marina on Pine Island also has a nice rental fleet to choose from if you have prior boating experience.

The Dollhouse has a private dock on the channel that boats use to access the resort so it has a private feel with limited boat traffic after the busy lunch hours. The dock faces North so you have a sunset view two the left and a great sunrise view to the right (if you get up that early!).

Where did you rent the skiff?
You can go down to our Marina Docks and rent a skiff form the dock master in the morning. The skiffs are $80.00 per day and you can take them over to Cayo Costa, the island next to Cabbage Key, to go beaching and shelling.

"Definitely splurge for a cottage. The view and privacy are worth it."
"Book early to get the cottage you want."
"The cabins give you a little separation from the crowd that shows up everyday at lunch for the "Cheeseburger in Paradise"."
"try to be early or after 1:30"
"The cottages are the best way to go for total privacy."
