Downtown Miami's only bed-and-breakfast.
This 1906 bed-and-breakfast transports guests back through the decades. Appealing to business travelers, newlyweds and families alike, this property is divided into four cottages containing 40 guest rooms. The inn retains its residential ambience with each room decorated with its own unique collection of antiques and period furnishings. First floor rooms have their own porches, while second and third floor rooms offer views of the Miami River. Most rooms have hardwood floors, and in addition to the decorative elements of brass, wood and wicker furniture, there are all the basic modern amenities, including cable TV, phone and private baths with period-style bathtubs. The surrounding outdoor grounds complete the private and intimate feel of the property, with lush landscaping and a pool and Jacuzzi surrounded by palms and a rich assortment of tropical plants. Breakfast featuring fresh fruit and homemade muffins is served in the breakfast room or garden courtyard. Guided tours, weddings and other special events take place often but are carefully planned not to interfere with other guests. At day's end, the inn's host serves complimentary wine and cheese on the verandah or by the pool.
