Property description

Scruggs Harbor is a charming and historic landmark dating back to 1928. It is like going back in time to a calmer and more serene setting. The two main cottages are directly on the beach and you step from your cottage onto the sand. Front windows across the cottages offer continuous viewing of this beautiful beach and her many changes and moods.

Each Non-Smoking cottage is decorated tastefully and comfortably and has all you need - just bring casual clothes and a bathing suit. It is truly a relaxing get-away and our many guests come back each time they need to unwind, feel the sun, walk the sand, and just generally getaway. We have plenty of parking, a rare commodity on any beach, and we welcome families, friends, and just folks from everywhere. We've also hosted some great weddings and reunions.

Keywords: This is a private cottage located directly on the sand facing the Gulf - private with a million dollar view

Car: Recommended

WE have a volleyball court on the beach in front and a sea going kayak for use, Plenty of rafts, balls, noodles, toys, etc, Also, beach chairs to take down on the sand. Located on a prime beachfront compound. Scruggs Harbor is definitely a bit of 'old Florida' with the mod coms!!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1923

About the owner: Scruggs Harbor has been in the same family since the early 1900's. It has a become a historic landmark in Indian Rocks beach and is enjoyed by many many people throughout countless years. We have a tremendous repeat business and also love meeting new people. We strive to make everyone's holiday special and unique. We encourage families to gather with reunions, weddings and celebrations of all kinds. Kids especially love the spaciousness and freedom Scruggs Harbor offers. We've been in this business for many many years and love what we do.

Why the Owner Chose Indian Rocks Beach, FL, USA:
This property is one of the best situated on the whole coast. We are beachfront and have a large private compound with lots of parking for our guests and their visitors too! We love sharing this place with others as it is a very unusual private setting. People come here and feel the "energy" from the times the Indians gathered in Indian Rocks Beach. It is truly an "oasis" in the midst of life's craziness.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Many of unique features and benefits come from being an original 1900's beachfront property. People love the "old Florida" feel that is lacking most places. We welcome guests and their friends to enjoy this unusual property. We have tons of private parking ( a rare commodity on any beach) and lots of space for wandering and exploring. There is no other place like this as most have been torn down and replaced with high density vacation condos. We have lots of privacy here and people relish the ambiance of this unique place.
