“Cabbage Key Birthday Delight”

Reviewed August 30, 2015 by ScubaPlus of Orlando, Florida

We just returned from 3 great days at Cabbage Key … We checked into one of the rooms in the Inn. Our room was extremely clean, the bed and linens perfect – – very quaint, albeit tiny. We knew that the room would have no TV so, we brought our lap top so that we could watch Netflix. We spent three (3) days boating and visiting Cayo Costa (a State Park Island only reachable by boat – – bring your beach chairs) and Boca Grande to the north. The beaches on the Gulf side of Cayo Costa are a must see. The Cabbage Key staff were very friendly. They are like family.

“Couples retreat”

Reviewed November 25, 2015 by amy b

Amazing retreat away from the hustle and bustle of life! Took my SO for a surprise bday weekend and it couldn’t have been better! We stayed in the “inn” and felt like it was our own home. We were greeted every morning by name by the most friendliest staff ever! They packed us a lunch on ice for a wonderful kayak trip to cayo costa private beach for the day. Dolphins followed behind our kayaks as we travelled between the keys.

“Excellent Stay”

Reviewed April 9, 2016 by bighamlin of Winter Garden, Florida

I and 2 of my business associates stayed 3 nights at the inn. This was the first time any of us have stayed here. We were simply blown away by the service we received, especially by Katie C. She remembered our names (Paul, Daryl and Andy), educated us with her knowledge of the island and the inn, and anticipated our every need. We ate all our breakfasts and dinners at the inn. While the menu was limited, it offered something for everyone, and the food was very good. Each of our rooms were different in size and design, but they were all comfortable and accommodating. I kept my boat at the dock out from the inn and had no problems.

This is the best ! The staff were amazing – the bar staff #1. Paula was a great host(ess) and give her 5 stars along with everyone there. The weather turned nasty but the Inn took care of changes and made the vacation relaxing. Menu was great. Back as soon as possible!

“Overnight stay and restaurant”

Reviewed February 20, 2016 by ColetteDal of Boca Raton

Kati C, our server was very sweet and attentive. The food was phenomenal. Crab corn bisque? GREAT ! Mahi too. The island is great to explore and perfect if you like to kayak or paddle! Our room was at the inn ( not a cottage) and very romantic and cozy ….

“Quaint with the friendliest staff”

Reviewed February 15, 2016 by A H of Miami, Florida

We went the weekend to celebrate my birthday. Such a cute little place with a lot of character. we stayed in the actual inn, but there were cottages to rent if you need the extra space. Our server Debi was awesome! She had the best personality and made us feel super special and welcomed from the very beginning. The food was absolutely amazing too … Would definitely recommend this location :)
