Enchanted Cottage was originally located on Bean Point during WWII. It served as officer headquarters and was strategic in the protection of the Tampa Port area during the war. Sometime during the 1950s or '60s the cottage was moved to its present location. In 2013, the interior of the cottage was totally renovated, including new appliances, but integrated the true 'Old Florida' look and feel.
Explore the Island on the free AMI trolley or it's only a short walk to island restaurants and ice cream, coffee and donut shops, taco or sandwich cafes, beach and designer clothing apparel stores, art galleries and island rental equipment stores, as well as a small grocery/deli. Or if golf is your game, there are 45 golf courses within a 30 minute drive!
The area is perfect for biking, golf, shuffleboard, amusement parks, fishing, birding, wildlife viewing, shopping, restaurants, sightseeing, swimming, snorkeling/diving, boating, water-skiing, surfing, windsurfing, beach walks, swimming, jogging, and more!
