Incredible small place in the small place of Matlacha, that is located on the causeway not far from Boca Grande. It is built on water so the floors are uneven but the spirit of this small Inn is beautiful. The room 5 A is like a small apartment and has a full kitchen, where you can cook a fish freshly...

As a valuable guest, please let myself & my staff thank you for taking a few minutes to share your vacation with everyone. We are so delighted by your extraordinary information about The Bridgewater Inn that this might be my easiest response yet. Our favorite quote was, " It is built on water so the floors are uneven but the...

Matlacha is the cutest little town and the Bridgewater is right in the middle. We had a great time staying there and exploring the area; however I think that the rooms are too expensive for the quality. Our room was clean but run down. Floor slanting, broken appliance holding up the sink and floor pretty dirty. Also the pillows had...

Dear valuable guest, On behalf of myself & my staff we are sorry to hear that you were unhappy with certain things during your stay but just like most historic places it will always have that rundown feel to it & as for the slanting of the inn we are directly over water so that can happen to any place....

This was the perfect place to visit with our family. The rooms were clean, the staff was friendly and the location was very convenient. We were able to walk to local restaurants and shops. The fishing from our dock located in front of our room was amazing! We loved it and will probably come back for a longer trip.

This was a great one-night getaway. Many Florida hotels that are "on the water" have a minimum 2-3 night stay, and it can be difficult to find a nice quick place to escape when you don't have that much time. The Bridgewater was very accommodating, reasonably priced, and the staff was great. We didn't catch any fish off the pier,...

We were looking for a get away with friends, and one we could come by boat too. An Internet search lead us to the Bridgewater Inn.

The place is a nice place to stay. Rooms are very clean, the staff is very nice. Fishing from the dock is great. We put paddle boards in right from the dock. Lot's of dolphin in the water. You can walk to all the restaurant's and bar's. I will go back stay with them again.
