Safety Harbor cottage description

The Carriage House is nestled in Old Town Safety Harbor. In 3 minutes you walk to the Pier on Tamps Bay, the Safety Harbor Resort and Spa, the Post Office and Starbucks. There are seven Restaurants within a 10 minute walk including the 'Almost Famous' Whistle Stop Grill where you will find outdoor seating , a laid back atmosphere and live music at least 3 nights per week..
The Carriage House' unique architecture and fenced back yard will make you feel like you stepped back in time..to a slower pace. ..Built in 1925 the Carriage House was originally just that- 'a carriage house 'not far from Green Springs Resort. It is the oldest wooden structure in Safety Harbor.
Step out on the brick patio for breakfast and have a drink on the wood deck at night. The bedroom is a second floor large loft with a large window to view the Bay about 100 yds away.
There is a working fireplace, TV and DVD, and a full kitchen.


Guest Comment: Thank you so much for sharing your charming cottage. We felt transported to another place in time. So relaxing & peaceful. The cottage is decorated so lovely and the grounds are beautiful.
You and your husband are wonderful hosts ,looking after every detail.
Marley seems to know his role as the the 'darling dog' of The Carriage House.
Thank you for our gift dinner at your awesome restaurant Whistle Stop Grill. We loved the place so much, we found ourselves back there 3 more times!!
We look forward toour return in April 2010

Guest Comment: We had a great time at The Carriage House.
We felt so away from it all..but yet very close to everything. The back patio was our sanctuary. And within minutes we could be on Main St. downtown . The Whistle Stop Dinner was a highlight..thank you very much.
We enjoyed the bikes & Kyacks you provided and all of your great suggestions of what to do & see in the area.
We hope to come back soon.
