Hotel Description:

Voted Best Inn on the Island - the Island Inn - with its combination of Old Florida cottages and modern lodges sits on 10 beautiful Gulf front acres offering 550 feet of beach with some of the best shelling in the area. Every room and cottage - most with screened porches - overlooks our beautiful 10 acre shaded beachfront yard - just steps from the gentle warm waters of the Gulf. This priceless amenity ensures a peaceful private and relaxing stay - as well as offering a wonderful space for the kids to play while you sit back with a book on your porch. Dating back to 1895 - the Island Inn is the traditional family resort on the island. During the winter season the Inns award-winning Traditions Restaurant serves breakfast and dinner in one of the islands only Gulf front dining rooms. The Island Inns location - Old Florida charm and warm southern hospitality keep guests returning year after year. The Inns guests liked the resort so much that in 1975 they bought it. Shareholders now own the Inn - many of whom have multi generational ties.
