Filled with a million memories and countless stories, the Artist House is an enchanting and historic guest house in the heart of Old Town Key West, just steps away from shops, restaurants, bars, water sports and boating. Recently refurbished rooms feature private baths, mini-fridges and LCD televisions. After just one peak, you'll understand why Robert the Doll loved to call this place home!

We got married in Key West on April 10 and booked the Turret Suite for the week. It was PERFECT. The Bridesmaids were able to sleep over, and the Suite has 2 full baths, which were very convenient. We were able to have the hair and make-up team come to the Suite with enough room to get 9 girls ready. The staff made sure we had everything we needed and even offered the boys drinks while we they were waiting for the girls on the porch. The house also made a beautiful backdrop for wedding pictures. We couldn't have asked for a better experience or day. We will definitely stay at the Artist House on future visits to Key West and highly recommend others to do the same. It's only a few steps from Duval and has great history. There's no better place to experience Authentic Key West.

A remarkable place to stay. Our family of 5 truly enjoyed our 3 nights in the Turret room. Super-friendly staff, nice breakfast and the afternoon happy hour is a treat. Just be aware that the ghost tours of Key West also like to stop by the house - sometimes late at night...

We stayed for four nights at the end of March 2015. Laura greeted us and within minutes we were learning new things about the isle, despite this being our 16th visit. Super friendly but not intrusive, just what you want for a B&B stay. And although cliche', the Artist House truly exemplifies the phrase: Location, location, location. You are literally steps away from the water and the most intoxicating street in the USA: Duval. I felt so comfortable with our next Inn Keeper, Cindy, I tried, but failed, on an April Fool's joke. Oh well, there's always next year. But if you don't have to wait, book it now. Enjoy.

The Artist House was a great place to stay in Key West; within walking distance to everything. The only downfall is the location is noisy with early morning noise, i.e.; delivery trucks, dumpsters being emptied etc. The house is very clean, continental breakfast is great & the staff is nothing but accommodating. All in all a great stay!!

gorgeous rooms, fabulous breakfast! my only issue was the noise of the first floor front room - some from the thoughtless people in the room above, some from the street. but that's just the way it is. otherwise, a wonderful stay.

What a great stay! A beautiful Old Historic Bed & Breakfast. The home is lovingly taken care of with the original charm. We stayed three nights in the Morning room, and loved the charm. The bed was so comfortable and the claw foot bathtub was awesome for a great long soak after a day of sightseeing! It was also nice to have a private balcony to have our evening coffee on. The house is located only 2 blocks from Duvall street, and an easy walking distance to tons of shopping, dining options and the nightly sunset ceremony in Mallory square. The morning continental breakfast served was very yummy and went beyond what you usually get in a hotel. It was also nice to eat out in the backyard on the patio under palm trees and beside their dipping pool (large tiled hot tub) We will look forward to going back again one day! Oh yes, even though we were staying in the next room to the “haunted” Turret Suite room we never did bump into the spirit of the original owner Anne or her husband’s doll Robert the doll. However, it was fun to sit on the upstairs veranda in the evening and watch the ghost tours stop and take pictures!
