Some Wonderful Feedback from Our Guests

From D. Crowley

Dear Jenny & Charlie,

First, I want to thank you for the six pack beer cooler! Although I am not a beer drinker, I do find this little cooler perfect for the medicine I take which requires that it be kept cold, so for traveling, it's perfect!

I also want you to know that in all my 84 years I have never found a nicer place than the Two  Fish Inn to stay.  The cottages are so versatile. They have everything one could possibly need-Lovely living room and kitchen-roomy bedroom and perfect bathroom.

The clock in the bedroom with its large numbers is an added convenience plus the flashlight!   All this with the friendly hosts who made us so comfortable.  We so enjoyed our stay with you and would not consider anywhere else whenever we return to visit. Thanks so much for your hospitality.

From Bob and Doris

A slice of paradise! I just spent a weekend there and the area, fishing accommodations are second to none. The owners, Jenny and Charlie put you first... They are wonderful. I recommend the Southern Most Inn Inn to anyone who wants a great get away.

Thanks guys, we plan to come as often as possible....

From Edward & Barbara-Ann Wertz

We just wanted to thank you for letting us stay at the " Southern Most Inn Inn " and tell you what a great time we had. You two are such wonderful people and we hope that we will be welcome back again soon. We will be taking a vacation in the beginning of July and and are considering coming back to see you. My husband works very hard and I wanted to thank you so much for giving him the most relaxing two days he has had in some time. We have been married since Dec. 1st. of 2007 and this felt like a honeymoon to us!  We will tell our friends and family about you and talk about our stay for some time to come. Thank you soooooooooo much and we hope to visit you again soon.

From Joe Pulley

The Southern Most Inn Inn is owned and operated by two of the most genuine and honest people you will truly ever meet. Jenny and Charlie absolutely love to entertain and host people with passion. You will be sure and have the best of both worlds when staying at the Southern Most Inn Inn.

Jenny books all the reservations, takes care in seeing that you have everything you could possibly need. Oversees all of the amenities, and has been in charge of all the renovations and interior designs. Makes sure every room  is spotless and smells wonderful throughout and if there is anything you need during your stay all you have to do is simply drop by the office or pick up the phone and Jenny will be sure to make you never forget how well a guest could possibly be treated.
Charlie takes care of, well.... Charlie fishes a lot!

Just kidding... Charlie and Jenny are two of the most compatible people for each other that you will ever meet and it shows in how well they work together side by side. Charlie is in charge of all of the charters including, fishing, site seeing, and real estate tours if you are looking for that perfect home. Occasionally you will see him around during your stay by the pool side and when you do you can be certain he has his nose to the grindstone working away diligently making sure everything is in perfect working order at the Southern Most Inn Inn.

Be it Tarpon, Redfish, Ocean Trout, Triple head, Snook, or Red Snapper, Captain Charlie knows all the secret fishing spots that harbor the best catches and will leave you with fishing memories to last a lifetime and stories to tell forever.

Jenny also manages rental properties in St. James City and the Pine Island area other than the Southern Most Inn Inn, so don't get confused when surfing throughout the website if you find other property that is advertised!

Customer service has been slowly forgotten in this day and age, but Jenny and Charlie are here to show you it hasn't died just yet.

Be certain of one thing. When you leave, the first thing that will be on your minds is how soon can we come back and when will we get to see our wonderful new friends again, Jenny and Charlie. It's all about building relationships, sincerely. 

From Shawn Christiansen

We just drove back to Lakeland and felt compelled to share a few feelings about our weekend retreat at your Southern Most Inn Inn. The Island charm and personality of your establishment is hands down the best I have ever experienced in Florida. I have fished and stayed at several places from Key West to Steinhatchee and have never experienced the "genuine hospitality" given while staying at the Southern Most Inn Inn.

From the layout of the property to the colorful and tasteful décor inside and out, the Southern Most Inn Inn is a remarkable vacation getaway. I can't remember the last time a two-day weekend felt like a week....that's what our experience was like! Thank you for the wonderful memories that will last a lifetime and for the sincere hospitality. You have gained patrons as long as the Southern Most Inn Inn remains in business, (NO NEW OWNERS!) Thank you again and best wishes.

From Michael D. Simmons

Charlie and Jenny, I just wanted to thank you for the wonderful time we had from May 12th through May 18th. We so enjoyed your company and the beautiful inn. I have vacationed all over the world, but with you we really relaxed and enjoyed ourselves. I actually could hear myself think there. It was so quiet and peaceful. Getting time to spend with my son seldom happens and we really look forward to our two weeks each year. We are so glad we spent one of them with you. The accommodations were gorgeous, the colors were so tropical and the landscaping made feel like I was in the South Pacific.

I even miss the pet black snake who visited me several times! Thanks for the use of your skiff. The creek was so beautiful and I felt like we were the only two people for miles when we were fishing back there. I am looking forward to our time in the fall when Charlie can put me on some big Reds! Again, thanks for being such gracious hosts. You are the best!

From Wayne & Deborah Eckstein

Thank you so very much for the wonderful accommodations. The suite was sparkling clean and so comfortable, the bed sheets/blankets smelled so fresh. My sister Linda even commented about how clean everything was (we are a little obsessive about clean).

From The Kermond Family

Thank you so much for a wonderful stay at the Southern Most Inn Inn. The two-bedroom suite was spacious and comfortable. Julian and Fiona enjoyed splashing and swimming in the pool. We can't wait to visit Pine Island again and stay at the Southern Most Inn Inn.

From Bobby and Marilyn

The Southern Most Inn Inn is a relaxing, delightful diversion. Bobby and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Thank you for treating us to a delicious meal in your home. Wine glass vs. Large goblet.....WOW!!!

From Maj. Jack Griggs

Thanks for the absolutely awesome fishing trip while I was home on leave. It was fantastic to catch a "keeper" Snook. Your support made my time home even better.

From Toni, Eddie & Buddie (The Dog)

We loved our stay! We really enjoyed a place that pays such attention & detail. Your place is beautiful. We'll be back! Thanks for everything.
