what a fantastic relaxing place! for the price less than a hotel in Sarasota we had an ocean front one bedroom cottage with full kitchen an use of beach and patio chairs we were direct ocean front we even had a "mascot" egret hanging around I gave a 3 for onsite dining only because there was no dining The person who checked us in did not know the place was with bed and breakfast and did not know anything abut the gift card however
Thank you, we are glad you enjoyed your stay. We do not have onsite dining except for full kitchens and gas & charcoal grills, as we are a small old florida property. However, there are many outstanding restaurant choices within walking distance. Our assistant, who was covering for us while we were attending a family funeral in Massachusetts is just learning about all of our 3rd party vendors. Ben was in touch with us about folks who had bed & breakfast reservations/gift cards and guests did contact me via my cell phone. All guests did receive exceptional customer service despite our loss. We hope you have a chance to a visit our paradise again. Sunny Regards, Life is always better at the beach! Chris

Stayed for 3 days / 4 nights and it was perfect! Comfortable quiet rooms. Gorgeous beach - almost like having our private beach. So relaxing, convenient to restaurants/grocery stores. Will definitely be returning!

We've come to LBK off and on for the last 29 yrs. I can truly say the beach and its beauty has not lost it's luster one bit. This small charming villa is just what one needs for R & R. Take a night or a few and enjoy the beauty that we are blessed to experience on LBK. Places like this are few and far in-between. Condo's and high rises will soon ( & already are) take over and it changes everything. Take the few steps as you walk out your villa door and peace is all you feel. Keep walking and just wait for all that you will see!! Our weekend was filled with crystal clear gulf, rain, rainbow, manatee, dolphins, sting rays, snake, fresh sea turtle next and a plethora of bird life. Just go!!!

Absolutely loved this inn! Only 11 units and very secluded which made it very nice, quiet and private. The landscaping on the grounds was beautiful! Rooms were very clean. The owner was very welcoming, the beach was only steps away from our unit and there was plenty of fine dining and shopping within a short drive. Would highly recommend for a quaint relaxing stay on the gulf and we hope to visit there again real soon!
