Thank you to Terri and the staff for making our honeymoon so perfect. WGC is simple, clean, adorable, rustic and private. The room was clean, we had ample towels, including one for our dog, two for the beach and bath towels. Thank you for that! It was very quiet and private with no screaming children to deal with or crowds, perfect for a romantic getaway. We fished off the dock and felt like we had the entire grounds to ourselves. Our doggie also enjoyed playing in the water and being allowed to roam leash free. We will be back!

My husband and I stayed at White Gate Court cottage number 3, with our small pooch for four nights in August 2012! The cottage is adorably decked out with a white couch and white rocker, small kitchen table, two a/c units, full refrig/freezer, cooktop, coffee pot, dishes, pans and microwave! The queen sized flowery covered bed is elevated and portioned off from the living area by a white wooden railing! There is ample closet space, dresser space, lighting and plenty of towels. Why just outside your door is your own porch complete with table and chairs for 4, in case you meet new friends! To obtain Kayak paddles, one must go to the office and sign a wavier of liability which is standard. Kayaks were always available for us to travel out across the peaceful bay waterways with our dog! Bicycles are available as well and are locked up late in the afternoon. The fact that there is not a pool here at White Gate Court is just simply in step with the natural wonder and layout of the compound. Throughout the property there are coconut palms, hibiscus flowers, huge snake plants, an outdoor chapel area, pick-nic tables facing out to the calming Florida Bay side of this island also referred to as 'Lower Matecumbe Key'. The city of Key West is roughly 75 miles away. 12 miles north is a large food store. Smaller stores are located about 3 miles in either direction. Guided Boat ride excursions and tours to Indian Key (a historical settlement) and Lagumvatae Key (a completely natural and unspoiled mitigation island) can be booked at the dock at the next island just over the bridge. Mile Marker 88 is a well known chef rated restaurant only about 12 miles north. Lorelei's is a fun restaurant that is closer by with live music. White Gate court was just the prescription my husband, dog and I were looking for: Rx for Peace, Quiet, Tranquility, Friendliness, Courtesy, no hustle no bustle. Our new slogan: "Book Again Kayak Often!" Dr. & Mrs. Anderson and our beloved dog!

I am so glad my hubby suggested we get away and stay at White Gate Court. He had stayed there several times growing up, and always talked about it and how it was PET FRIENDLY! Often it is so difficult to find pet friendly places, well WGC really IS! We stayed for the weekend in cottage 1 and our dog LOVED It! He sure made a lot of new friends over the weekend. The location is ideal and many restaurants are close by, however inside of your cottage you have everything you would need to cook meals at home. We just opted to go out and experience the restaurants, which were all great! Next time, we will bring food to cook on the grill and enjoy more time at the cottage. It is so very quiet and relaxing. We took the kayaks out both days, and really enjoyed exploring around. We also took the bikes out and tried to ride them to Robbie's, but one got a flat, so we had to turn around and go back. The cottages are very RUSTIC and cute. The grounds are very well maintained. Terry is very nice. We really enjoyed our stay. If I had anything to say to give it the 5 stars, I would say our room needed new sheets. They were pretty worn and a bit itchy to sleep on. Other than that, everything was GREAT! Make sure you bring BUG SPRAY. At night mosquitos are out to get you!

The staff is wonderful. Kind and considerate. This is the only "resort" I have found in the upper keys which is truly pet friendly. The rooms are small cottages - some individual rooms, some cottages have 2 units per cottage.
White gate court is well maintained and extremely clean. The cottages are older. With window air conditioners. This is not a luxury resort. If being with your pet is the focus of your vacation, this is the spot for you. You can leave your pets safely in your room to go to the beach or out to dinner. The other resorts that claim to be pet friendly do not allow this. At the others, your pet must remain with you at all times.
Your pet can safely walk through the property without a leash. The small boat ramp is perfect for dog swimming in shallow water.
My dog was quite ill at the beginning of our visit to white gate court. The dog seems much better.
He went swimming and roamed the grounds playing with the other dog guests. Terri, the office manager at white gate told me this happens often - that people come down with their dogs to say "good-bye" to their beloved pet, and owner and pet have a wonderful bonding visit.

We have been coming here for 4 years now! Each time we have had a awesome time! Quiet, peaceful surroundings! This is in the Keys so remember relax and enjoy it. The 7 cottages are very clean and accomendating. Don't expect room service! Bring your food and drinks and lay back and relax. We bring our beloved Reba and she loves this place. Fish, swim watch out for Dolphins and Manatees!!! The sunset we go out to the dock for our sunset happy hour! Terry is so womderful and nice and greets you with a bid smile! Can't wait till we go in May!
