A very special place, with tons of common space, big rooms, BBQ grill, amazing ocean view, comfortable seating outdoors and inside -- hammocks, lounge chairs, swing chairs. Great breakfast, lots of extras. Disappointed that the hot tub was not working when we were there, as that was one of the chief draws of the place for us, but the owner...

This is definitely the best kept secret in the keys. It is off the beaten path. The wildlife it's beautiful. But it's close enough where you can go visit Key west or anywhere else in the keys. The rooms are comfortable and cozy and they provide everything that you need. The breakfast was yummy. Our host was excellent tour guide...

We had a downstairs room facing the ocean. The room was comfortable and had everything we could have needed. The host was extremely gracious and helpful. But the key deer were the main attraction. Watching them wander by, cavort and play from our patio or room made this a truly memorable occasion. I will definitely go again.

This is a very nice retreat for people not looking for the crowds. Those who like kayaking will have a wonderful time (bicycles and kayaks are available free), one can have trips around the peninsula. Location is excellent, the sandy beaches Bahia Honda is a 10 minutes drive away. The Atlantic is also good for kitesurfing, though self launching is...

Both my husband and I were delighted to stumble across this gem. It's unique atmosphere, boasting an open view ceiling in the main entrance, lends to it's quaint feel of the outdoors with the romantic feel of a true getaway. The gentle smell of sea breeze wafts through the air and mixes with aroma of flowers. The hosts, Tim and...

Where in the world could you have such an excellent breakfast with ocean view and pelicans flying by? Where do you have a private little beach where the Key deer kindly greet you? Where is there a triangular fairy-tale little house with formidable hosptiality? Its the Barnacle B&B!!We highly recommend this astonishing place.(Theo and Ellen, november 2016)

Barnacle B&B is a most amazing serene spot to fully enjoy the water. It is the perfect private get-away where you can stargaze on the roof, eat on the balcony over-looking the water or go right down to the beach and wander along or sit in the swing with only nature as your company. The room is a lot of...

Interesting venue in a beautiful and quiet location. Right on a private beach. Key deer walk by constantly while you sit in the lounge chairs. Eclectic, rustic, interesting and fun. We saw a fire dance, used their kayaks to check out the mangroves, and relaxed in a restful, quiet location.

This has been a wonderful place to stay. Big pine key is much quieter than either end of the keys and the barnacle has been the perfect peaceful getaway. We stayed in the separate treehouse type room. It is very different but comfortable...the bathroom is a bit strange, but functional. The view of the water is wonderful with chairs on...

First of all, don't pay attention if their facebook page says this business is not operating anymore. Not only it IS operating, but it's an almost-perfect spot in paradise: by the ocean, surrounded by astonishing nature (you will see more key deer there than in the Key Deer Refuge!), with kayaks and bikes at your disposition, a great hot tub...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to the Barnacle! We are a bed and breakfast in Big Pine Key, FL which is about 30 miles from Key West. Our place is peaceful and very quaint. A perfect place to get away from the hustle of everday life, but still close enough to Key West to enjoy a day downtown. We pride ourselves on making your stay the most memorable and relaxing experience that you have ever had at a b&b, with excellent gourmet breakfasts and bbq's in the evening to reflect on the days activities while you watch the sun sink into the Atlantic Ocean. ... more   less
