From Indiantown Road and US1, head north on US1 past County Line Road 1.2 miles (directly across from the Jupiter Hills Country Club).
HISTORY - Jupiter is rich in history with the earliest known records of the Jupiter Inlet dating to 1565. When Spanish explorers first arrived in this area, they found the Jega Indians living along the banks of the Jupiter Inlet and Loxahatchee River. The Indians called themselves the Jobe. When English settlers found the area in 1763, Jobe sounded to them like the mythological god Jove, or Jupiter, and the name remains today. The Jupiter area first came to widespread public attention when Johathan Dickinson, the namesake of nearby Johnathan Dickinson State park (and my great, great, great uncle), was shipwrecked on the shore of Jupiter and narrowly escaped death at the hands of the hostile Indians. Today, the DuBois Museum in DuBois Park stands atop the Indian mound described by Dickinson as the place where his family was held captive. In the 1800's Jupiter's most identifiable landmark, the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse, was erected. The lighthouse stands 108 feet tall with 105 steps to climb.

The North Cottage
The North Cottage
We arrived at the North cottage late Monday afternoon (May 20) and I was exhausted. I later fell asleep instantly on the king size, pillow-topped bed and slept through a fierce thunderstorm that night. Penny, our youngest pup, hid under the bed and Molly, our 13-year old pup slept in her bed next to Bob. The North cottage cannot compare to a hotel room at the Jupiter Beach Resort, Hilton, Sheraton or Comfort Inn. It is however, a very comfortable cottage with two bathrooms, a sauna and hot tub. The cottage was perfect for us and reminded me of those found in Key West having lots of vegetation everywhere and coconuts galore. Everything you could possibly need is there – coffee pot, microwave oven, blender, etc. My two small dogs had a great time exploring the property although they usually stayed close to the cottage. Having the outdoor rinse off (private and next to the bedroom) was convenient for getting sand off both us and the dogs after returning from the dog beach. Because of the rain, we didn’t use the hot tub. Early morning off shore thunder storms provided a spectacular light show. Nearby conveniences (restaurants, food stores, etc.) allowed for more relaxation time rather than hunting for supplies. In addition to the homes of the rich and famous (Tiger Woods), there’s a lot of history in the area and a trip to Jonathan Dickinson State Park (the owner of the cottage is the great, great, great nephew of Jonathan Dickinson), along with the boat trip up the Loxahatchee River to the Trapper Nelson camp are worthwhile and interesting. We purchased the book “Life & Death on the Loxahatchee” written by a local author and available at a reasonable price in the park’s concession stand (by the boat docks). While in the park, we saw gopher turtles, deer, raccoons, snakes and manatees. We definitely had a relaxed vacation and will be back again in the near future. Bob, Sandy, Molly and Penny

We stayed at the North cottage for two wonderful weeks.It is a beautiful little cottage with everything you need to make your stay enjoyable.We had our dog with us and she was free to roam since the property is entirely enclosed The view is wonderful through the many palm trees and the fishing off the dock was excellent .We are looking forward to staying again next year.

We spent our vacation last July at the cottage and it was absolutely perfect. Perfect size for a young couple just needing a week to get away. It was great to wake up each morning to see the ICW and we thoroughly enjoyed being able to fish out of our back yard. We caught snappers and barracuda right from the dock among many others. Don't expect "luxury", but what you get is a very quaint cottage that is perfect for those who love to play outside on their vacation. We are looking forward to coming back again this year.We have found ourselves mentioning several times how we "missed the cottage in Jupiter".
