          Staying here is staying in history! As I understand it, it was built to house Civil War Union soldiers, but turned into a inn by the 1880s--something like that. The porch that runs long the entire front is what I love. You can sit on...More

          We loved the Tarpon Inn. The price for the room (deluxe queen ) was a little high but it was clear where the money was going (great staff, plentiful linens, fresh paint everywhere, landscapers trimming the palms, clean pool). No TVs but the expansive porch...More
