Knowles House was originally a private home that was built in the 1860s and is a well preserved example of a mid-19th century conch house that was typical of the homes built by the area’s early Bahamian settlers.

The Inn has over eight custom designed suites that are each decorated with a unique theme and supplied with cozy furnishings so that guests can fully unwind when they spend time in their rooms. The inn is designed so that guests feel more as though they are staying in their own private retreat, a home away from home, rather than just being a faceless visitor packed into a standard hotel room.

Most breakfasts feature pastries, hard boiled eggs, fruits, muffins and coffee or tea. A cozy downstairs parlor and deep covered porches with comfortable chairs provide the perfect place for guests to catch up on the news in the local paper or visit with other guests. There is also a rooftop sundeck for those who wish to work on their tan, and even a private little nook tucked into the corner of the tropical garden where guests can cool off under an outdoor shower.
For guests who wish to use the inn as a base for their Key West explorations, the inn is also within walking distance of Duval Street and Key West’s historic sections, so that guests can enjoy a wide range of trendy restaurants and shopping opportunities or bike along the historic streets and take in the sights and sounds of the area’s unique architecture and culture.
