“Quaint and Quiet”
Reviewed 17 June 2011

We stayed here the last week of April. Our unit was clean and well furnished. There is a nice pool and we caught a lot of fish off of their dock. We cooked our catch on the gas grill just outside our cabin. I would recommend this resort for someone who just wants to fish and relax. Internet is intermittent.

We stayed in one of their cottages for a week and had a very comfortable stay. The cottage we stayed in had a full kitchen which made it a pleasure to cook in. We had a huge screened porch with water views. There is a dock for fishing and an in ground pool. We found the location to be a short bike ride to Dearborn street which has many places to eat and interesting shopping. It was also a short bike ride to the nearby beaches. We will be back next year!

I just loved Englewood Lighthouse Resort. The cottages were clean and had everything that anyone could ever need. It was very quiet and it was just beautiful sitting on the dock .
It felt as if you were on a secluded island, yet just mins away is every store and restaurant you can ask for.
I am hoping to make this a yearly trip. Cant wait to go back

Although I am reluctant to share this "Hidden Gem" in Englewood, Florida.... it is the right thing to do. This is actually my 4th visit here in the past 2 months. Each time I return, it is like "coming home". This is a small group of "old Florida" cottages with all the amenities you could want. Each cottage has its own kitchen with full sized applainces and a regular sized kitchen table., a seperate bedroom, seperate bathroom, a den and most have a screened porch with nice patio furniture. The grounds are scattered with patio table and chair groupings, BBQ's, and lots of trees with spanish moss providing good shade. Among other reasons, I chose this place because it has a nice long dock with two captains chairs and a place to filet your freshly caught fish. I am here with a fisherman, and Larry and Lisa have nice fishing poles to borrow. The catfish are hungry and there seemed to be a fish on the line every few minutes.
We have enjoyed sitting on the dock with a bottle of wine, and fishing poles in the water under the moonlight. This resort is all about relaxing and spending some quiet time.
Do not expect elaborate surroundings or fancy bathrobes and room service. This is not a chain or cookie cutter experience: and that is why I love it. Lisa and Larry treat you like family, but are only around when you need them. The value is great, and the location is very good with a short drive to Englewood beach and the restaurants there. I will continue to visit, so leave me one cottage to enjoy, and we can all meet there.
