This was a great place to stay after an Everglades paddling trip that departed from the Everglades Area Tours location within easy walking distance.

Clean rooms. Bill was extremely helpful and knowledgeable about the area and best places to eat. It would have been nice to have a Queen Bed option, but the full beds worked out fine.

We headed to Everglade City after lunch where we visited a market that Warren had recommended for Stone Crabs. We got a pound, along with a wooden mallet and "pickers" for the meat. It's served cold with lemon and butter on the side. I will report later.
Thanks for stopping by and sharing more of our journey with us.
