National Interior Designer Enhances Charm of Island Inn

Melinda Graham was commissioned to redecorate the guestrooms and cottages to reflect what the Inn represents to so many people today – a beautiful, cozy, home away from home on the beach – without losing its charm or history.

The Island Inn has bikes available to rent on the property. Visit the front desk for more information.

Pedal Power

Sanibel and Captiva islands are a great place to trade in your afternoon car ride for a relaxing bike ride along the trails. With an average elevation of four feet, the islands’ geography makes biking practically effortless.

Fall has Arrived

Residents and visitors begin returning to the islands and, although this has been a very busy summer, we’re looking forward to seeing our old friends.
Thanksgiving is less than a month away and we’ll be hosting many guests for the holiday.
