My boyfriend and I stayed in the Dollhouse Cottage for two nights in December and loved every minute of it. Besides the beautiful views, we found the privacy unique and just what we were looking for. One day, we rented one of the skiffs from the dock and boated out to Cayo Costa where we essentially had a private beach to relax on for the day. Other things to do on the island are rent kayaks and go hiking on their small nature trail. I will admit, there really isn't a lot to do on the island, but for us, that was the point. We were not looking for an excursion but rather just a place for some peace and quiet. Don't forget to pack snacks and beverages to bring with you. The restaurant has great food, but it can get pricy if you want alcohol or are eating all three meals there. Our cottage had a small refrigerator and was the perfect size for breakfast and lunch items. The staff at Cabbage Key was outstanding and really made us feel at home. I would most definitely visit again and encourage anyone who is looking for a relaxing private getaway to do the same.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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. ... more less
