A landmark since 1885, this former bridge tender's home is set back from the Intracoastal Waterway at the edge of the north causeway, which still has an operating drawbridge. Rooms open out to plant-filled verandas and balconies, and views look either through trees to the Intracoastal or onto the private courtyard and pretty pool. Each room is furnished differently with charming antique touches, such as an old washbasin, a quilt, or a rocking chair. An "expanded" Continental
breakfast is served in your room. The inn has a charming waterfront restaurant, full-service spa, and an excellent gift shop, and is near art galleries and stores.
