Stayed here last week of October. Hot afternoon, but cooled off by 7-8 pm. Though there is no fuel and you have to drag yourself all the way to the restaurant to get ice (as a previous captain kvetched!) it is more than worth any alleged inconvenience or hardship. Quiet in the shoulder season, no other transient boats the night we were docked there. Bartender Katie, Server Paula & the Manager were very solicitous of our needs at the restaurant. The food was delicious! Quiet, restful location....well sheltered from a strong NE breeze.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Cabbage Key is a 100 acre island located five miles off of Pine Island, FL in the Pine Island Sound. The Inn, built in the 1940's by the family of Mary Roberts Rinehart, now houses our famous Restaurant & Dollar Bill Bar and six guest rooms. The rooms in the Inn are all different with old Florida charm - they do not have TVs, phones, or refrigerators. We have seven cottages on the island, ranging from a 1 bedroom/1 bath cottage to 3 bedroom/3 bath waterfront units. All cottages have refrigerators, televisions (no cable) and coffee makers, some units have full kitchens. Our restaurant is open seven days a week and serves breakfast, lunch & dinner. If you want to relax on a beach...we do not have one here. But, Cayo Costa is a close kayak or boat ride away. This is a great retreat to discover "Old Florida", relax with a book, fish from our docks & watch the boats go by. ... more less
