Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Once home to legendary author Ernest Hemingway, the gorgeous grounds of his Key West retreat have been meticulously maintained and provide a lush backdrop for an island celebration near the southernmost point of Florida.
  • You can arrange for a private tour of the house for you and your guests during your festivities. The structure, which dates back to 1851, still contains chandeliers and art collected by the Hemingways, and is patrolled by cats descended from the family's own pets.
  • The dense tropical foliage of the gardens offers a feast for the senses. With hibiscus, jasmine, ginger, and gardenias flourishing throughout the property, you'll be delighted by the bright colors and perfumed scents that waft on the evening breeze.
