Our original B & B is a remodeled boarding house built in the 1920s
which was originally operated by Mr. & Mrs. Ivey to house the workers constructing the Tamiami Trail. It consists of eleven air-conditioned rooms off a long hallway and common area, but separate men and women's bathrooms. Each room has either a full sized bed and a twin size bed, or one queen size bed. There are no heaters, TV's, phones or bathrooms in these rooms. A few heaters are located in the hallway and living room. Guests often gather in the common living room to visit with others, read, play games, or watch TV. The lodge is a very short walk to the tropical courtyard where one can enjoy the pool. Three people maximum per room. In 2012, the Lodge will be closed from May 1 through October 31: our Inn and Cottage will be open all year. Please check those pages for rates and other information.
