Near the southernmost point of the southernmost land in the continental U.S., the Southernmost House in Key West was built in the late 1800s, and has hosted some of the island’s most famous visitors. Follow in the footsteps of Truman Capote, Louis Armstrong, Harry S. Truman, Tallulah Bankhead, Gore Vidal, Gloria Swanson and John F. Kennedy with a stay here.

They all arrived at an elegant Victorian mansion on the shoreline, with colorful gingerbread eaves cocooned in a bower of palm trees and gardens. The house has been renovated several times, but there are still period touches like Tiffany glass windows, wooden four-poster beds and a colonnaded wraparound porch.

The back of the house opens to an infinity pool, surrounded by sun loungers served by a poolside bar. A few footsteps past the end of the pool is the water line, where the ocean stretches toward the horizon on its way to Cuba. The hotel is at one end of Duval Street, Key West’s main thoroughfare, populated with bars and shops inside breezy, beachy, historic bungalows.

From the press:
