I've stayed at this special place two times now and can't wait to go back. Wonderful location and charming atmosphere, very Key West! The manager made us feel like family and we were right at home! Thanks for the memories!

David, Thank you for your “great” review of The Artist House. You are exactly correct. After a vacation is over and one looks back, it is always the wonderful memories left in one’s minds eye that matters most. So here is our heartfelt “you are very welcome” and our sincere hope to see you back soon to create even more of those wonderful memories at The Artist House. — Jason and Lori Barnett, Owners’ of The Artist House

We took the Key West Express from Fort Myers Beach to Key West for 4 days and 3 nights. Since the weather turned unusually cold, I am so glad we had our booking at Artist House, a Victorian building with amazing staff, particularly Jess, and then Carlos. Their attention to detail

Foreriver, Thank you for you “warm” and very sunny review of The Artist House. I see you are from Maine... brrrrrrr! As a fellow former New Englander, I can definitely relate to your “sun-seeking instincts” and preferences for rooms facing the sun. It’s particularly nice that you were able to take advantage of the Key West Express Ferry from Fort Myers to Key West to spend a few days with us here at The Artist House. Isn’t that such a wonderful service? It drops you off just a few short blocks from our House and is just so convenient for our guests coming down from the west coast of Florida. We are also thrilled that you were able to take full advantage of our “delightful” and filling breakfast, happy hour, late night snacks, victorian throwback fireplace inserts and so needed warm jacuzzi too. These later two usually don’t get so much use in balmy Key West but it sure is nice to have them when the weather turns colder than usual. Speaking of warm and useful, aren’t Jessica and Calos the very best? They both are so dedicated to our guests and making sure they have a wonderful time in Key West, even when we have less than desirable weather our guests still love the Artist House experience. So, thank you again for your wonderful review of The Artist House and hopefully you will be back to visit us soon! After all, “our house, is your house” at The Artist House! — Jason and Lori Barnett, Owners’ of The Artist House

We just stayed for 4 days, 3 nights at the most gracious B&B in Key West. Carlos and staff could not have been more accommodating. Carlos greeted us and took us on a complete tour of the home going over all of what we would need for our stay. We stayed in Eugene's room and it

Greg And Kirsten, Thank you for posting your incredible “second to none” review of your vacation experience at The Artist House. Our entire staff (Carlos, Jessica, Helen, Shawn and Marlene) is dedicated to making sure our guests’ have an extraordinary vacation experience. It is so nice to hear that they not only met, but exceeded, your expectations. We fully understand that travelers visiting Key West have a multitude of lodging options available to them, but we feel very strongly that providing exceptional and personalized customer service to our guests really sets us apart. I dare say, there is no better nor more dedicated a group of individuals in the hospitality industry anywhere. Indeed, for those travelers looking for a more generic and anonymous vacation experience, we are probably not your place. On the other hand, for those looking for a more unique and individualized Key West vacation experience, perhaps we just may be your place. Also, as you point out, we do our very best to offer a tremendous value to our guests’ by providing a complimentary high end European style breakfast spread (including mimosas) each and every morning. We also provide a daily complimentary happy hour with meats, cheeses, soft drinks, beers and wine. Did I mention, we love to spoil our guests and want them to have a unique vacation experience? Well for those who may be skeptical, you should know that it was just not enough for us to have all this wonderful art hanging on the walls throughout our house. No, we just had to go overboard and arrange for Rick Burnett, a local street artist painter, to join us last Friday during happy hour and demonstrate how he paints a painting from start to finish. Mr. Burnett has been painting on site everywhere on this island for decades. He can be found selling his marvelous creations almost every day in the Casa Marina area of our island and it was a real honor to have him join us. We at The Artist House recognize that our local talented street artists are just a treasure and part of the very fabric of our Key West community. After all, we ourselves are named after a once prominent Key West painter, Gene Otto, and even have one of his paintings prominently displayed in our house. In fact, we are so proud of our historical roots, we will most definitely be making an effort in the future to expose our guests to more of the wonderful art that once was and is still being created in Key West. Thanks again for your wonderful review of The Artist House and we certainly hope to see you soon. — Jason and Lori Barnett, Owners’ of The Artist House

Carlos welcomed us to this charming Victorian b&b. It was happy hour time at the Artist House and a nice selection of wines and soft drinks were offered. We enjoyed our wine as Carlos checked us in and showed us around with a wonderful history of the house. We had booked three of

JeanMatl, Thank you for you “fantastic” review of The Artist House. You arrived at the perfect time, happy hour! I am sure Carlos loved to show you around the House and describe the rich history of the place. What a wonderful history, right? We are also thrilled that you approved of our “wonderful continental breakfast”, which is really a traditional style European breakfast spread. It has a little of everything, takes advantage of our local talented bakers, and is perfect for a place like Key West to get the day started. We actually inherited this breakfast spread from the prior owners of The Artist House, Jo and Ray Kearny, who have spent their entire lives running B&B’s both here in Key West and across the pond. They not only have that really cool accent that makes them sound “wicked smart”, but they actually knew what they were doing when they picked out their breakfast spread. Why reinvent the wheel, right? We only had to copy their model and double down on the mimosas and we were good to go. We even inherited Jessica (our GM), with her “wonderful smile” and contagious laugh. Have you ever heard such a wonderful laugh? It gets me every time. So thank you again for your “fantastic” review of The Artist House and please make sure to come back to see us soon. — Jason and Lori Barnett, Owners’ of The Artist House

We stayed at the Artist House for one night in November 15, 2018 and we had a great stay. Staff was friendly and welcoming. Carlos was very helpful with tips and ideas for excursions. Our Room was the Sunroom which was quiet and very clean. Bed was very comfortable. The backyard

Lucia H, Thank you for your amazingly “great” review of The Artist House. We are thrilled that you approved of the Sunroom, which is the smallest room on property. It is also the only room that is accessed from outside of the house through a steep staircase; and it is not decorated with the traditional Queen Anne Victorian furniture like the rest of the rooms in the house. However, many of our guests love the solitude and treehouse type feel it offers guests. In the near future, we are going to make some changes to the furniture in this room to make it a romantic victorian cottage feel. Guests traveling solo, or as a couple, looking for a place to stay for a day or two will be very satisfied with this room. Once we get done putting in the new furniture, it’s going to be really romantic; and we anticipate our guests will love the transformation (but the rest is none of my business). Thank you again for your review of The Artist House and we look forward to seeing you back soon. — Jason and Lori Barnett, Owners’ of The Artist House

Hello, My name is Nicholas LeBlond. My wife has talked about the Artist House for years and I have been promising her a visit. This year, her dream comes true. I have booked a visit on July 6 - 8. We will be driving from Maine to Key West and will need a parking spot. And she would like the Turret Room if available... We are very excited about this trip.
What are the room rates for April 11-13, 2016? There will be two couples. Do you have rooms available?
Hello, Thank you for your inquiry however our rates and inventory have not been released at this time. Please check back with us at the end of July.

"I liked the queen Morning room with the little east balcony."
"Eugene's room was quite, clean, and big with our own bathroom."
"Not a bad room in the house, but we preferred the Anne Suite on the 2nd floor at the back which had access to a beautiful porch."
"The Morning Room has a private balcony, but all guests have access to the 2nd floor terrace."
"The rooms upstairs can only be reached by stairs (no elevator)."
