What makes this cottage unique

There are many parks within walking distance that are perfect for walking a pet. I love the original Florida Heart Pine flooring in these buildings and I love the views of the St. Lucie River from our porch/sundeck located in the front of the main hotel buildings. I also love strolling the Riverwalk and watching sailboats pass and the mullet jump. I also love the smells of the delicious food being prepared by the restaurants on our premises while sitting outside viewing our beautiful Florida Sunsets

Quaint cottage

  • 5 of 5

Quaint cottage close to all attractions in Stuart. Pet friendly with a small fenced in back yard for pets and dinning. Good music from next door bar which ended in the early evening.

Quaint cottage right in the heart of shops and restaurants

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is a two bedroom, 1 bath unit with a small kitchen area and living room. It is not fancy, but quaint and the office staff goes out of their way to see to it that you are happy. Great customer service. You are steps to the water and a nice path to jog or walk and community docks to jump on a boat.

The cottage is literally next door to a tikki hut bar and Italian restaurant. Charming place.

Christmas Weekend Getaway

  • 4 of 5

We wanted a Xmas Weekend away from our routines and chose the Cottage at the Old Colorado Inn in Stuart Florida. It was a good decision for us. Our 13 year old Pug mix loved the enclosed patio area. The Cottage was a bit worn but worked out just fine. Historic Downtown Stuart is undergoing restoration and has a nice mix of shops and both casual and fine dining. The Atlantic beaches are 15 minutes away. The owner checked with us daily and was genuine about assuring our stay was a good one. Especially enjoyed finding breakfast on our porch each morning.
