Sanibel offers first-class kayaking and paddleboarding. Canoe & Kayak Magazine and Paddler Magazine both list Sanibel as a top destination for great weather, abundant wildlife, world-class beaches and proximity to other hot spots such as Captiva and Pine Island.
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.
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.
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.
