We've been visiting Cabbage Key since the late 1970's, and it's great to see that some traditions just stay the same. Located in the heart of one of the most pristine, beautiful boating areas in Florida, we always feel like we're welcomed as family to this wonderful place. Dockmaster Jeff is a fixture, patiently conducting the flow of arriving boats... More

Our servers love hearing when they exceed expectations, and this made Emily’s day. All of our fallen dollars are donated to various local charities, which usually amounts to $10,000 per year! Our water tower is one of the originals, holding 6,000 gallons of water, and playing home to our resident osprey family. We look forward to seeing you again soon,... More

My wife and I were part of a group spending a week kayaking with a base at Cayo Costa State Park. One of our kayak excursions was to Cabbage Key, where we had lunch at the Cabbage Key Inn Restaurant.

When the actual experience tops what the brochure says you know you have found somewhere special. Our most recent stay was fabulous. Of course the climate is spectacular. The food is excellent, the old Florida feel is relaxing and the staff are wonderful folk. Rob and his team made our week truly special.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Cabbage Key is a 100 acre island located five miles off of Pine Island, FL in the Pine Island Sound. The Inn, built in the 1940's by the family of Mary Roberts Rinehart, now houses our famous Restaurant & Dollar Bill Bar and six guest rooms. The rooms in the Inn are all different with old Florida charm - they do not have TVs, phones, or refrigerators. We have seven cottages on the island, ranging from a 1 bedroom/1 bath cottage to 3 bedroom/3 bath waterfront units. All cottages have refrigerators, televisions (no cable) and coffee makers, some units have full kitchens. Our restaurant is open seven days a week and serves breakfast, lunch & dinner. If you want to relax on a beach...we do not have one here. But, Cayo Costa is a close kayak or boat ride away. This is a great retreat to discover "Old Florida", relax with a book, fish from our docks & watch the boats go by. ... more   less
