Circa 1889. The oldest operating guest house in Key West, the Island City House was built for a wealthy Charleston merchant who later converted it to a small hotel, anticipating the arrival of the railroad in 1912. Restored by two active preservationists, Island City House and Arch House provide suites in beautifully restored environs with turn-of-the-century decor. Private porches and ceiling fans are historical amenities that remain. The Cigar House is a cypress wood building with spacious suites in an elegant island. Many of its accommodations offer porches with hammocks overlooking the pool.

We enjoyed relaxing on our hammock on the veranda of the Cigar House. We'll be back.
