The Watercolor Inn

The luxury hotel Watercolor Inn is a northwestern Florida getaway that gives you unparalleled access to both the Gulf of Mexico’s sugar-white beaches and emerald waters, and the natural wonders of the surrounding coastal pine forests.  Add to this first class tennis, a bevy of nearby golf courses, and great accommodations, and The Watercolor Inn is a well-rounded, versatile beach destination in Santa RosaFlorida.  

Take in a sunset from your Adirondack chair as you enjoy a warm Florida night from your own private balcony in one of the Waterfront Gulf view Rooms.  Inside, these 500 square foot rooms feature king sized beds with 100% Egyptian cotton linens, large walk-in showers with inset windows, ceiling fans, iPod docking stations, custom entertainment armoires with flat screen TVs and DVD players, mini-fridges, coffeemakers, business desks, and roomy sitting areas with queen sized sofa sleepers.  The Beach Front Dune View Rooms feature all of these amenities, aside from a balcony because they are located on the first floor.  Instead, they offer a private patio hidden amidst the natural vegetation of the Watercolor Inn’s surrounding sand dunes.  This secluded patio is furnished with Adirondack chairs and has an outdoor cabana shower covered in a brightly striped canvas.

Located on the Watercolor Inn’s first floor is InnSpa, a relaxing setting in which guests can immerse themselves in lavish treatments and complete tranquility.  InnSpa specializes in ‘the art of rejuvenation’ and the extensive menu of options is designed to revitalize both body and mind.  Another great place to rejuvenate your self is at the Watercolor Inn’s fitness center.  The array of weights, cardio machines, and classes with personal trainers enable you to maintain your fitness routine even while on vacation.   There’s also an adult pool situated directly behind the Inn, surrounded by towering sand dunes.

The Watercolor Inn is a paradise for water sports enthusiasts; canoeing, kayaking, and even sailing are available to guests. You can also charter a fishing boat from Crooked Creek Fishing Charters, or rent a bicycle and explore the 499 sprawling acres of property that the Watercolor Inn inhabits. 

There’s more to the Watercolor Inn than just the beach and water sports. There are three quality golf courses in the nearby vicinity; Camp Creek Golf ClubOrigins Golf Course, and the Greg Norman-designed Shark’s Tooth Golf Club.   Tennis enthusiasts will enjoy honing their skills on the Watercolor Inn’s five secluded beachside tennis courts.  These world-class Har-Tru Hydro Courts are surfaced with dark grey-green crushed stone, and three of them are lit for night play.

Travelers with an adventurous nature will have a wild time exploring the untarnished natural backdrop that surrounds The Watercolor Inn.  You can take a guided canoe tour around Western Lake that will follow the paths of ancient native civilizations, Civil War soldiers, turn-of-the-century turpentine workers, and World War Two Coast Guard outposts.  You’ll also traverse through the Point Washington Wildlife Management Area, a preserve that is home to ospreys, bobcats, and whitetail deer.  Another interesting excursion is Grayson Beach, a rare saltwater/freshwater hybrid habitat where bottlenose dolphins, sea turtles, and stingrays are common sights.

The Watercolor Inn offers guests several attractive dining options, such as the “Fish Out of Water”.  Overlooking the Gulf of Mexico, this seafood restaurant serves up the freshest fish and meats, with an eclectic approach to traditional ways of preparing dishes. Perfect for celebrations, Fish Out of Water’s elegant private dining room has walls lined with 3,000 bottles of wine from the restaurant’s formidable collection.  The oceanfront Beach Club is a convenient and fun place to stop by after a day at the beach to grab a light dinner or to enjoy a few cocktails.

The only Four Diamond Hotel in northwestern Florida, The Watercolor Inn seamlessly combines the fun of a Florida beach resort with the intimacy of a classic beach house and old-fashioned southern hospitality.  Experience a truly unique luxury vacation at one of Florida’s best-kept secrets by booking your stay at The Watercolor Inn.
