If you want tranquility and somewhere the pace of life doesn't matter this is the place to go to. With friendly staff eager to make your stay memorable, with great views particularly of sunset (better still if you climb the islands water tower) and well furnished comfortable cottages it provides a true getaway. Try to stay overnight and sample the fresh fish dishes at the restaurant, a different menu to that at lunchtime when the tour boats visit. If the weather is warm, as it usually is, relax and watch the wild life of dolphins and pelicans, to name but two, from your sea front cottage or from the patio outside the restaurant. If it is colder hunker down in the cosy bar in front of an open fire and chat to the staff who are never short of a story or play a game of cards or scrabble.
Iit is well worth arranging the boat transport to get you there. We have been 3 times over 10 years and we will be going again!
- 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
