Tarpon Lodge

Inn in Pine Island

The atmosphere at this genteel 1926 fishing inn seems barely to have changed since the door opened. Rooms have a comfortable, retro feel while the dining room has a clubby vibe thanks to its gleaming wooden interior and black-and-white portraits of previous angling patrons. The family also manages the rental cottages on Cabbage Key Island.

You can book any number of cruises or fishing trips through the lodge.
