Besides its great beach-to-bay location, this inn has historic value and in 2011 was listed in the National Register of Historic Places. In the 1930s, Pulitzer Prize–winning cartoonist and conservationist "Ding" Darling, namesake of Sanibel's refuge, stayed in the historic cottages here, which are the most charming of the property's accommodations. Anne Morrow Lindbergh, wife of famed aviator Charles, also stayed in one of the cottages while authoring her book Gifts
from the Sea. Today, water-sports enthusiasts especially like the rentals and charters at the marina.

On-site dining options include The Old Captiva House, Oasis pool bar, and Crow's Nest lounge. The Spa at 'Tween Waters Inn is full-service and a welcome indulgence.
