The former estate of Peggy Mills, a local garden lover, is now a romantic retreat situated in a lush botanical setting intertwined with walkways and dotted with fountains. The 17 rooms are dispersed among the Peggy Mills Mansion (listed on the National Register), two additional Bahamian-style structures built in 1993, and a freestanding cottage. Each room is done up with polished oak floors, crown moldings, mahogany furnishings, original Key West art, flat-screen TVs, and oversize verandas. Most rooms in the original are smaller (and less expensive), than those in the newer buildings, but the master suite has cathedral ceilings, a private balcony, Jacuzzi, and sauna. The free-form pool and outdoor bar are ideal for an after-hours swim and mojito, and the complimentary breakfast buffet stars Key lime beignets and extra-large muffins.
