Expert Review

The resort's two personalities cater to different travelers: There's the 10-room lagoon-front inn with studios and one-bedroom suites for adults and couples, and the 10 original bayside cottages for families and those traveling with pets. No matter your accommodations, you'll enjoy hammocks (some rooms have personal ones) and private hot tubs on your own intimate patio or secluded courtyard; kayaks, fishing gear, and bicycles at your disposal; and a resort discount at neighboring Ophelia's, the most romantic restaurant in Sarasota. Robes, sherry, high-speed Internet, and laundry facilities are added bonuses. Turtle Beach, named for the loggerheads that nest here from May to October, is just a few minutes away by foot, as is the resort's "secret beach." Paddle far enough south on Little Sarasota Bay and you just may see Stephen King wave from his home on nearby Casey Key.
