I would stay here again when I visit Key west -- you can't beat the location just a block off Duval St, yet far enough that it's quiet when you need quiet. Anne's Suite is big and comfortable.

Breakfasts are in a nice shaded courtyard as is the 4:30 pm happy hour. The happy hour is a nice touch as it lets you meet the other people staying there. It was our first time in Key West and we got lots of tips on what to see and do.

Room Tip: We stayed in Anne's Suite, which I would guess is ~ 25 by 25 ft with a large bathroom. The King...

We stayed 2 nights, celebrating our 20th. Stayed in the Turret Suite. All around great place. However, if you do not like noise or ghosts, I would recommend you stay elsewhere. Noise is not (all of it) from the house, but from the surrounding area. Ghosts, well, self explanatory if you check the history.

Room Tip: Quaint house has many options of rooms. Got to peek into a few, they all looked great.

Thank you for the great review! We're happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us and that the ghosts did not bother you! We're sorry if any of the street noise caused a disturbance. We are far enough off of Duval Street, so you don't get any of that rowdiness and have made every attempt to sound proof our rooms. We're thrilled to hear that this did not affect your stay and we hope to see you again soon!

The inn is lovely and our room, Ann's suite is beautifully appointed. The location could not have been better - just a block from busy and lively Duval street, but shielded from all the noise and night activities on Duval. We enjoyed the breakfast buffet which was quite copious and served in the lovely patio in the back of the house. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Artist House and would not hesitate to stay there again.

The historic Artist House on the north end of Key West was a absolute joy to stay at. But one of the many parts that made my Girlfriend and I stay perfect was the tremendous hospitality by the innkeeper. First the house is quite amazing, it's an late 19th century Victorian guesthouse that really stands out from the majority of the other homes on the island because of the pink color used on the wooden window frames and chairs out on the first and second floor porches. The room we stayed in was the parlor suite, and is was very roomy and spacious compared to our small hotel room in Miami Beach a couple nights before. The king size canopy bed was amazingly comfortable, and the 14 foot high ceilings made you feel like your staying in a royal home!!!
Now another great part of staying here was the location, it is only 1 block east of Duval street, the main tourist street of Key West. This makes for the perfect location, because your close to all the action of what Duval street has to offer (restaurants, bars, shopping), but just far away so your not bothered by the noise of this busy street. So if your looking for a place to stay in Key West, the Artist House should be your top choice, especially if you want a unique place to stay on the island!!!

Thank you for the wonderful review! We love to hear that you appreciated the spacious rooms and high ceilings. It is rather regal! They just don't make them like the used to! Thank you for taking the time to write this and we do hope you'll return.

We stayed here to celebrate my big birthday for 2 nights. There was parking available for a minimal fee and the position of this hotel is in walking distance to most attractions at Key West and staggering distance from the bars. The staff were very helpful and friendly, rooms were comfortable and adequate, with history to each room. Happy hour flows well on the patio area and breakfast has a wide range of different food and beverage choices. In all, a very enjoyable stay in the Keys at Artist House.

My girlfriend and I just spent 3 nights at the Artist House on Eaton and absolutely loved the time we spent there. The house is beautiful and full of history, the staff is incredible, and the location is perfect. Breakfast is provided from 8:30 to 10:30am, great pastries and fresh fruits and such, and a complimentary happy hour is provided from 4:30 to 5:30pm. We stayed in the Eugene Room on the first floor, it had a nice big four-poster bed along with a sofa, a very clean bathroom, and a view of the spa and garden area. The small staff of the Artist House was extremely friendly and accommodating, always willing to lend a suggestion of a restaurant or sight to see. The house itself sits only a block away from Duval Street where most of the bars and restaurants are, easily in walking distance from anything you may want or need. We parked our car when we got there and didn't move it the entire weekend until it was time to, regretfully, leave Key West. This was our first time visiting the city and we cannot wait until we can get back, we fell in love with both the city and the Artist House. On our next trip we are definitely staying at the Artist House again, this was easily our best traveling experience and it was due in large part to the Artist House and it's wonderful staff, particularly Laura who was there most of the time that we were. If you're looking for a great place to stay in Key West, whether with your family, on your own, or for a romantic get away, look no further than the Artist House.
