First off my wife and I fish and hunt. We have a smaller sized boat perfect for the shallow waters inside these islands. Two years ago that was my main draw to Bridgewater Inn as I could keep my boat tied right at door and hop in to fish at will for our week's stay. After doing months of map...

First and foremost we liked the staff. I picked this place on the reviews as well as the owners’ website, but things are not really as they appear. We had the famous corner suite 3 for our stay and we could not wait to leave. The photographs must have been taken years ago when everything was newly furnished, painted and...

We spent a few nights here late July after deciding that we needed to get away for a few days...

Our stay was exactly what we were looking for; quiet, clean, and a great place to fish, chill and relax. My husband enjoyed the fact that he was able to walk right out of our room at any crazy hour of the early morning or late evening and catch snook and snapper. I enjoyed being able to just sit out...

Thank you for summing up the Bridgewater Inn in Matlacha, Florida with one word " chillax"... Now let us take this time to explain what "chillax" means because not everyone is up to date on the lingo these days. LOL "chillax" means the combination of chill and relax.
