We hope you will come and treat yourself to the tropical weather of the Florida Keys. When you come to stay at our Florida Keys resort, consider taking a trip to Indian Key.
Indian Key has a rich history. At one point in the 1830s, Indian Key was home to a thriving town. Even then folks knew the indulgent nature of relaxing in the island breeze. In fact, the man who built the town, Jacob Housman, advertised his hotel on Indian Key as a therapeutic retreat for the ailing.
Today the Florida Park Service works to maintain the numerous foundations and ruins. They also maintain the cultural landscape of the historic community. The island provides a wonderful glimpse of South Florida history. So, take a boat ride, visit us, and experience some of our fascinating maritime history.
It is accessible only by private boat or charter boats available at nearby marinas. Remember that when you come to stay at Lookout Lodge, you can bring your boat for a trip to Indian Key, and we are a pet friendly resort Florida, so you can bring your best friend too!
