Turtle Beach Resort Review

Reminiscent of a quieter time, many of the cottages at this friendly, affordable, family- and pet-friendly resort date to the 1940s, a romantic plus for yesteryear lovers. In all, there are two studios, two one-bedroom units, and six two-bedroom cottages with full kitchens. Some units have courtyards; those on the bay side have the best view. The grounds are private, shielded by high wooden fences and palms, bougainvilleas, and other tropical foliage. The inn sits on Sarasota Bay and is named for the sea turtle nesting sites that lie across the street. If you really want to escape, use one of the resort's canoes or kayaks to paddle a short distance south to a beach dotted with sand dunes and sea oats. A new sister property, The Inn at Turtle Beach, is a one-minute walk away and offers romantic accommodations.
