Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: Owning these historic cottages is a family affair. My wife and I (and our sons), along with my parents, all living in Minnesota, have lovingly restored these cottages. It has taken many trips over the past few years to revitalize this wonderfully unique place, but the result has been stunning and rewarding. So much, that we have recently completed another fantastic renovation on the same street, our wonderful 2 unit Old Florida 'Beach to Bay Cottage.'

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
This is a truly unique and special place. Originally built as a Fish Camp in the 1930's, these cottages are a reminder of the wonderful historic past of Anna Maria Island. These types of places just don't exist anymore.....phenomenal waterfront location, quaint cozy cottages with everything you need, & beautiful beach just a minute away. Our guests return time and time again.
