... Greatly relieved to hear this, we took the opportunity to sit for a while and look at the water-life – which was quite abundant. After this, we decided that we had seen enough of the Keys and that it was time to turn back. To be fair, it did seem that the further down the Florida Keys you head, the less influence there is from the worst of the tourist development. I can only imagine though what the traffic jams must be like on that ...
started the day counting mosquito bites, Greg had over 100 and was an easy winner! We had to stop at the Rangers Post on the way out of the park for Casz to ask about the species of spider that had given such a fright yesterday. Full of anticipation of an everglades adventure, we set off along Tamiami trail (the traditional name of the road connecting Tampa and Miami). Eager to fuel up for the day, we headed straight for Everglades ...
... beasts sunning themselves within a few feet of us. I found myself wondering if a) they could smell fear, and b) they could climb up the gap onto the walkway. Luckily, even if the answers were yes and yes, they were far too comfortable to bother with us! In total we saw about 17 of the beasts as they were settling themselves for the night. We also saw a couple of turtles and a couple of anhingas, so it was a good wildlife viewing total.
... an interesting experience. It was difficult to see the road even with the wipers on full. Headlights were needed to identify vehicles in front. This continued all the way south and east as we traveled along highway 41 to Florida City. We passed through the Everglades and will see them again in a couple of days. Along the way through the Everglades we saw signs for Panther crossings and lots of vultures along the ...
... only hostel on the island and the only affordable place to stay, but as we could not check in until 4pm, we made our way to the heart of Key West, Mallory Square to grab something to eat as we were starving. Apart from being famous for Key Lime Pie, the Keys other food of choice in Conch (sounds like bonk), a mollusc that is actually the mascot of the Florida Keys. Annabelle had heard that conch fritters were the thing to eat, so we set ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Dove Creek Lodge Key Largo
Cant wait to go back
we loved it! wish we could have stayed longer.
very clean and comfy. quiet. relaxing. beautiful view. pool area was great also. nice big towels. very clean tub/shower.
snappers - better for lunch than dinner. service little slow. but, since there is no driving involved, it is perfect! bar next to snappers was fun also!
went fishing w/ capt leon. had a great time! saw some dolphins too!
would definitely stay again! we think it wold be perfect for a quick getaway (ie 2 days) as long as there was a vacancy.
cotiental brkfst also very good - lots to pick from.
We really enjoyed our 3 nights at Dove Creek. We stayed in a one bedroom suite which gave us a sizeable seating area with TV and full size fridge.
My wife and I stayed for 3 nights in January and had a great time. The place is very clean and relatively new. The staff was courteous and helpful. Nice pool and hot tub next to the ocean. Adjacent restaurant and bar were also good. Went fishing for an afternoon with Captain Tim and had a good time. The lodge is off of the main road with a quiet setting. I highly recommend.
Stayed here for 2 nights at the end of December and even though the weather wasn't cooperating, we still had a great time at Dove Creek Lodge.
I recently had the pleasure of staying at Dove Creek. Not only was the hotel wonderful but the staff was even better. We were going to use an outdoor location at the hotel for our daughter's wedding and when the weather did not cooperate, the staff went out of their way to find us a location indoors for the ceremony. They did this out of the goodness of their hearts. They did not stand to make any money off of what they offered.
Excellent Location with larger rooms
Our family of four stayed at the Dove Creek Lodge for 4 nights over Thanksgiving. We chose the lodge because of the availability of two bedroom units.
Very few hotels have two bedroom units or will guarantee adjoining rooms. It is wonderful to travel as a family, but four people in one room and one bathroom for four days can get to be a little much.
The lodge was excellent. The rooms were very clean and well serviced. The hotels small size and nice location made it a relaxing place to stay. It is convienent to most of Key Largo, but since it is a block off the main highway it has a quieter feel.
I stayed here with an extended family group and we loved it. It was rather new and we had it mostly to ourselves. There was only one other guest room in use besides our two so we had the pool to ourselves. My room was in the main building just off the office and my family had a suite in the south building. I really liked the commons area for TV watching and reading. It was great to park underneath the hotel, never a parking problem. The room was done in muted earthy tones and had a very relaxing feel. The room was not large but it had very nice furniture and we had a private balcony. My family used the balcony outside the front desk for our breakfasts and it was a nice breakfast also.
We chose the Dove Creek on the basis of two very positive tripadvisor.com reviews and extensive web searches of Key Largo hotels. Thank goodness for tripadvisor.com, because it helped us avoid some awful spots. Dove Creek is everything the previous reviewers say and more, and as we drive up and down "the strip" of Key Largo we are more and more thankful that we stumbled across this absolute gem.
Dove Creek Lodge is great!!
Just completed a delightful, restful 3 night stay. DCL is on the ocean, far enough from US1 to be QUIET inside. Several steps up from many Keys "resorts" (nice common room with a beautiful ocean view, WiFi, clean , quite new) but small enough to have an intimate feel. Only "downside" is no beach, but this is a blessing in disguise as it seems to limit the clientele to adults only. If you want a big, fancy beachfront resort or dirt cheap accomodations, DCL is not for you. But if you want a modern, clean, quiet, and fairly-priced place to stay, you will not be disappointed by DCL. Would recommend to my pickiest friends.
We were looking for a one night stay after having stayed in Key West and searched a number of Key Largo hotels. We came across the Dove Creek Lodge and were very pleased that we had chosen it. Apparently it was built from scratch towards the end of 2004 and the furnishings and fitments are of really good quality, including the loungers and chairs at the pool. There are hammocks on the sandy area adjoining the pool and the lodge itself overlooks the ocean. You can park your car under the building and it's free! There are boats for hire and you can charter your own fishing trip. There is a restaurant and a bar on site overlooking the water - we didn't try either, but the menus looked really good and they were obviously extremely popular both with locals and tourists
