Kim purchased this Bed And Breakfast in 2016
Why Kim chose North Trail
This is a distinctive and historic property, former estate of Charles Ringling (of Ringling Circus fame). It is beautiful and you really need to see it. It is an iconic Sarasota landmark.
What makes this Bed And Breakfast unique
On the premises of The Reserve, a popular coffee/tea house, fine wine, and craft beer bar and independent bookshop with light live music on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. Light continental breakfast included each day of your stay. You won't find accommodations like this anywhere else in Sarasota. It is unique and distinctive. A historically significant space. Intimate and cozy, too.
100% refund for cancellations more than 14 days before check-in date. 50% refund for cancellations more than 7 days before check-in date.
The Reserve, perfect for the well healed sort...
Enjoyed, the space, the help, especially Mia, who couldn't have been nicer. Took part in the open mic night - great fun.
Friendly, hospitable staff. There is an amazing little coffee house on site! Loved the room and location. The only down side was the traffic noise. There is a noise machine to help drown it out, that was a nice touch.
Too much money for accommodations. The location is great but furnishings were tired. Good bed
Stayed in the Otis Ringling Suite. Quaint and unique.
The Reserve turned out to be a perfect weekend getaway. It was unlike any other stay in that you’re not in a cookie cutter location. Rooms are great. Live music on the weekend. So quant and friendly. Great coffee bar on the premises with local beer on tap at al times.
Expensive, noisy & bad service. Has potential
Comfortable room/bed and good WiFi, coffee, cookies. Noisy road outside room (need good windows), couldn’t understand when breakfast was open & not enough towels. Thought room was kind of expensive for what you get. We liked the nighttime music in the courtyard
What a welcoming and cozy surprise! This location is a must if you're in Sarasota!
We were so pleasantly surprised with how welcoming and cozy our stay was at The Reserve. Having a fun cafe, bookstore and wine bar just downstairs was so convenient, and we're sad our stay wasn't longer. The room felt like a home away from home, and had everything you could need for weekend away. The staff was super helpful and had plenty of amazing suggestions for its patrons. We will definitely be back again when visiting Sarasota or Siesta Key!
Check the info in your room or visit the website Visit Sarasota County for more information...far too much to list here, but we do want to mention the Ringling Museum has FREE admission on Mondays. Secondly, there is a FREE iRide shuttle between this guest accommodation and most points of interest downtown.
