The Family Lodge is our 3 Bedroom, 2 story Home. This is the Cottage that the owners stay in when they come to the Beach.
It has the perfect set up for a family of 8. King Bed in Master, Queen bed in the second bedroom and 2 Day Beds with Trundles in the 3rd bedroom. The 3rd bedroom is also set up with a table for board games and watching TV or Movies. Perfect for putting the kids upstairs while you fix dinner and enjoy a glass of wine downstairs.
These cottages were built in the 40's and we have done our best to maintain the Character of the Period. Pine Hardwood ceilings like you might have seen at your Grand Mothers. Pine Hardwood built in cupboards in the kitchen and chest in the bedrooms.
Our Property Manager, Deanna, is constantly looking for interesting pieces for our cottages and Gardens.
She uses high end linen and updates it regular so you are assured fresh, bright, fluffy, sheets, comforters, and towels. We furnish Beach towels, lounge chairs, umbrellas, and for the Children there is always plenty of Surf and Sand Toys.

This cottage sits 50 steps from the sand. To make up for having to walk through the Garden to get to the Beach we give our guest exclusive use of our Gulf Front Pavilion. Your on Little Private Piece of Beach Front Paradise furnished like a living, dining combination. Perfect for Cocktails and Sunsets. A Great Escape from that 2 to 4 heat of the day in the summer!

Indian Rocks Beach is a Barrier Island off of the mainland of Clearwater and Largo due West of Tampa.
It is a very Family Friendly Community. You can walk Safely to several highly rated restaurants as well as several local Haunts and Watering Holes. Be sure to discuss with me what you are looking for in food and I will direct you to the best spots for eating or shopping
I say Safely as we have recently had walking lanes and a Bike lane added to Gulf Blvd in our area. A Big plus for Families with children.
Indian Rocks Beach has very little Public Parking. Also a Big Plus as there is no where for outsiders to park so our Beach is far more Private than the Commercial areas like Clearwater and St. Pete.
Indian Rocks Beach has been sited as one of the safest Beaches in the world. Due to the layout of our coast line in this area riptides are all but unheard of. Our beach floor is level with a white sand bottom.
We are 8 miles from the Famous John's Pass which houses Hubbard Marina, the largest Marina on the Gulf Coast of Florida, where you will find every kind of water sport you can think of as well as some great shopping and restaurants.
Seven miles North you will find the Clearwater Aquarium. This is where the wonderful movie 'Winter' was filmed. A must for the children.
Before you make the trip Google Vinoy Park, St. Pete to see what will be going on there while you are in the area. Great Outdoor Concerts, Blues Fest, Bar B Que Cook Offs and all around Family Fun.
Lowery Park is about 45 minutes away. A must for Zoo Lovers! Their Zoo is on the top 10 list in the Nation!
