Guest Rooms at the Mermaid & the Alligator

Each uniquely decorated room in our stately mansion has its own distinct personality, one is sure to match yours. 

Our 1904 Queen Anne Victorian mansion with its distinctive style of angled bay windows, sloping gabled roof, spacious verandas & porches has six stylish rooms on three floors.  Our suites feature king beds, large spa-style bathtubs & showers, while our other rooms have queen beds and unique walk-in showers.

You may also enjoy the laid-back style of one of our Conch Cottage rooms. Our historic 1880's cigar maker conch cottage sets the backdrop for the bright tropical colors and decor of the Bamboo, Papaya & Key Lime Rooms. These casual style rooms are reached by walking through the garden of the inn and still feature all of the amenities of the main house. All rooms have private outside entrances.
