Englewood Lighthouse Resort pays tribute to lighthouses. Naturally then, the lighthouse theme is very prominent in the decor of all of our cottages. This page offers pictures and other information. Our Resort Map page shows how it is all laid out.
Englewood Lighthouse Resort has some nice things you might enjoy using while staying here with us. We have a long dock that extends into Lemon Bay. You can fish off the pier, spot some dolphins, adore some manatee, watch the pelicans, or dock your boat. For those who caught some fish, we have a cleaning table right there for your convenience. For those who kayak or wish to take a dip in Lemon Bay from our resort, we have a small sandy beach right next to the dock that you may use.
We have an in-ground pool that is screened-in and heated seasonally. Please Note: The Pool is currently only accessible by guests of the Manor House, Cottage 3,4, and 5. It is just a few steps from the bay so it provides a great place to relax. Near the pool is the Clubhouse. The Clubhouse has a living area, and a screened lanai for your use. (Clubhouse available August 6 through December 15 and January 10 through May 20).
For our guests, we offer free wireless internet service (FREE WIFI) and usage of an internet computer with printer in our Clubhouse. We also have a shuffleboard court for all guests to use. Please note: WIFI available year-round, but shuffleboard only available August 6 through December 15 and January 10 through May 20.
There is a laundry room on-site for your use. In the laundry room, are a washing machine, a dryer, and some other essentials you might need during your stay. We also have gas grills available for your use when the urge to barbeque strikes you. If it's just sitting around and relaxing that you enjoy, note that most of our cottages have sreened-in porches, or sunrooms.
Our resort is prettiest at dusk. Our guests prefer a sunset meal on the Clubhouse lanai or west patio, or a relaxing break on the dock. Because we face directly west, the sunsets are spectacular! We also have landscaped grounds with numerous types of local flora. Some of the trees we have include a mango tree. Sampling some of our fine fruit (in season) is just one way to enjoy our resort.
We are right in the heart of Old Englewood, where the enchanting feel of a long-forgotten tropical Florida will overwhelm you. At a time when so much of our beautiful Florida landscape is being threatened, it is refreshing to be away from high-rise condos and theme parks. Although our property is one acre in size, we only have two other houses on all of three acres around us. Please see the aerial photos which show our property from a birdseye view. (Update: we are getting a new neighbor next door not shown!)
If that's what you enjoy, please come visit our beautiful waterfront resort and spend your vacation with us!
