Expert Review

On a hundred acres, Cabbage Key's singular and remote inn is only accessible by boat or seaplane, with trips running regularly from Captiva Island. Dinner here inspired Jimmy Buffet's hit song, "Cheeseburgers in Paradise." The six rooms at the inn, which was built in the 1930s, and the cottages, with names like Dollhouse and Cabbage Patch, all exude an old-world Florida style with features like hardwood floors, French doors, screened porches, and tasteful décor. Hang out at the lively bar, with its infamous wallpaper of thousands of signed dollar bills, and comb deserted beaches by day to soak in the panoramic views.
