Fodor's Expert Review Ivey House
107 Camellia St., Everglades City, Florida, 34139, USA Fodor's Choice
A remodeled 1928 boardinghouse built for crews working on the Tamiami Trail, Ivey House (originally operated by Mr. and Mrs. Ivey) now fits adventurers on assorted budgets. One part is a friendly B&B bargain with shared baths and a cottage. The adjoining 18-room inn (opened in 2001) has private baths—plush by Everglades City standards. Most inn rooms surround the screen-enclosed pool and courtyard. Decor includes Everglades and Ten Thousand Islands photography. The layout promotes camaraderie, but there are secluded patios with chairs and tables for private moments. Free Wi-Fi is in the dining area, pool courtyard, and lodge area. Rates include breakfast. Guests are offered 20% discounts on canoe and kayak rentals and tours via Everglades Rentals & Eco Adventures.
