Fodor's Review

The only bed-and-breakfast in downtown Sarasota, the inn has a delightful assortment of themed rooms. The Martha Rose Suite has French accessories with a balcony overlooking the Gulf of Mexico, a sitting area, and a separate powder room. French doors in the Mango Suite open onto a garden, and the furnishings include a couch, armchair, and Victorian writing desk. Aptly named, Kathryn's Garden Room has a floral feel with wicker furnishings, a sitting area, and views of live

oaks and mango trees. The two-room Victorian-style Elizabeth Brittany Suite has an oak high-back bed and tropical sitting room. And the Essie Leigh Key West Room has a front-porch view of the bay, a pewter-and-brass bed, and private entrance. All have private baths and access to the boccie court. Rates include full breakfast as well as afternoon hors d'oeuvres and cocktails. Guests under 21 aren't permitted. The hip Burns Court shopping/dining district is a short walk away, as is downtown.
