The experience of the House, its staff, the village was one of returning home to a bit sleepy and relaxed home village. It is impossible to get stresset here. The surroundings and nature is fabulous and top 5 class of the world. Do the kajak if you go there! Let no more air boats disturb our nature.

We have been in Ivey House for just one night. The rooms are very clean and big, ours had two queen size beds. In the structure there is also a roofless pool. Breakfast is ok, with a good variety of food. The structure also offers free parking and free WiFi connection. Definitively it was a good hotel, with just two... More

Echoing the comments of others (nice to see so much consistency!), the Ivey House is an excellent base from which to visit the surrounding Everglades, Big Cypress, and extreme southwest Florida coast.

This is the best maintained property in Everglades City, which is overall kind of run down. My son and husband enjoyed the kayaking experience. I walked around the city and visited the parks center where they offer boat tours of the Everglades. If we came back to the Everglades we would probably stay at the Ivey House.

Our first trip to the Everglades brought us to the Ivey house. They offer a great package for rooms and excursions into the glades. The room was very clean and roomy.
