Our family has lovingly restored this HISTORIC 1939 FISHING CAMP located on beautiful Sarasota Bay. You'll be surrounded by water living on the narrowest point of Anna Maria Island. It's only a 1 MINUTE WALK to sugar sand beaches!
Located at 115 South 7th Street, the cottages have a very private yard which extends out into the bay, giving expansive unobstructed views of the historic clock tower and pier, the sailboat harbor, draw bridge, and the skyline of Sarasota.
Our large private dock can easily accommodate your boat, and is great for fishing, swimming, or just watching the boats go by.
Main Cottage features both an Upper & Lower unit, each with it's own bath and kitchen.

About Tim McGlennen
Owning these historic cottages is a family affair. My wife and I (and our sons), along with my parents, all living in Minnesota, have lovingly restored these cottages. It has taken many trips over the past few years to revitalize this wonderfully unique place, but the result has been stunning and rewarding. So much, that we have recently completed another fantastic renovation on the same street, our wonderful 2 unit Old Florida 'Beach to Bay Cottage.'
Tim McGlennen purchased this Cottage in 1999
What makes this Cottage unique
This is a truly unique and special place. Originally built as a Fish Camp in the 1930's, these cottages are a reminder of the wonderful historic past of Anna Maria Island. These types of places just don't exist anymore.....phenomenal waterfront location, quaint cozy cottages with everything you need, & beautiful beach just a minute away. Our guests return time and time again.

All instructions for access were clear. The cabin is adorably decorated. Very relaxing.
Adorable homey beach cottage right on the bay.
Couldn't have loved it more. Loved the house, the location right on the bay with the dock. Beautiful beach a block away! Exactly as the owner described...so wonderful! Fun little beach town that is laid back and non commercialized.
Thanks Jane. So glad your family could enjoy this special place!
We had a wonderful time! View from the upper main cottage was beautiful. Restaurants, shops, and beach were within walking disntance.
Bradenton Beach is beautiful! Cottage B was cute and clean, very nice. The shower is amazing, the bed is comfortable. We brought our boat & kept it at the dock, which was very convenient, but head straight across the little bay through the sailboats, and not along the shoreline or you may get stuck. The fishing was great! The beach is across the street & wasn't crowded. The water was amazing. The location is close to lots of attractions. The only downsides were the tiny family room with tiny TV - At the end of a day of boating & fishing, there's no real comfy area to hang out in, but we knew that going in. Also, there are dishes & cooking utensils, but we had to buy everything else, including salt & pepper and a sponge for washing up. The laundry room is shared between 3 cottages, which wasn't clear in the listing, so there was some waiting. Overall, we had a great time, and the price was right for a last minute getaway!
A slice of Paradise
This place is what I personally call my little slice of Paradise. Woke up to beautiful sunrises every morning and a sunsets every evening, from just about anywhere. Access to everything you want.......my recommendation......Enjoy!
Best place on the island
Returning in 2015 for our fifth stay at Bill's Fish Camp. Have made some good friends and we really enjoy the area. Relaxation is our # 1 priority and the cottage lends itself to that objective. The sunrises are as spectacular as the sunsets. Everything we need is close by.
Joe and Linda, Vermilion OH
True Island Living!! You'll be surrounded by water. The immense Anna Maria Island Sound to the east, and Gulf of Mexico to the west. Other Activities: Fish directly off your dock, as well as trap stone crabs and blue crabs.
