About Us

About the Ivey House and Everglades Adventures

Whether you want to experience a taste of our beautiful sub-tropical wilderness or just want to explore one of Florida’s most quaint, quirky and charismatic old outposts, our family-owned Ivey House will provide you and your family wonderful, peaceful accommodations by night and exciting Everglades Adventures by day.

The Ivey House is TripAdvisor’s #1 rated lodging facility in Everglades City. We are proud to offer four separate lodging options to best suit your needs. You can choose the historic Lodge with shared restrooms and family room. The Lodge was built in the 1920s as a recreation center for the brave men who built the Tamiami Trail, the first roadway spanning the Everglades from coast-to-coast. Our modern Inn offers spacious rooms, each surrounding our beautifully landscaped screened-in tropical courtyard and pool. If you and your family or group need a little more room to spread out, you can choose our fully-furnished cozy 2-bedroom Cottage or our private 3-bedroom Homestead house. All accommodations include a delicious complimentary breakfast with each night’s stay.

As relaxing and comfortable as your nights will be, your days will be filled with fun and excitement with Everglades Adventures, the leading provider of eco-tours in the western Everglades. Located at Ivey House, our Everglades Adventures provides guided canoe and kayak paddle excursions deep into magical, mysterious Everglades. For travelers who want to experience the beautiful Everglades on their own, Everglades Adventures also offers canoe and kayak rentals.


Ivey House and Everglades Adventures can also help you plan an unforgettable group event for your next family reunion, church, corporation, or school outing. Whether it’s for a weekend or a week, we’ll provide your group a choice of comfortable accommodations and private, guided paddling adventures, and more.

Come join us for a remarkable stay and adventures of a lifetime in America’s largest and most diverse subtropical wilderness.
