In the spring of 2009 I spent a delightful month at the Englewood Lighthouse Resort. I stayed in one of the clean, cozy, and very affordable cottages on the bay and a mere two miles from gulf beaches. The resort provided me with opportunities to truly enjoy Florida's wildlife right at my doorstep. Spending most evenings on the dock, I watched magnificent sunsets, saw manatees bobbing just a few feet away, dolphins elegantly cutting through the water, and pelicans diving for fish.
The owners, who live on the premises, are lovely people and genuinely want to please their guests. The grounds are well maintained and the many palm trees surround you with the ambiance of sunny Florida.
Having spent many a week along the Jersey shore, I can tell you that the Englewood Lighthouse Resort is a real bargain and a clean and delightful place to enjoy Florida's western coast.
