Five minutes to Downtown, 5 minute drive to Lido Key Beach, close to Siesta Key (and across the street from beautiful Sarasota Bay)! In other words, in the heart of it all.

It is on the second floor of this historically significant home that was once the home of Charles Ringling (Ringling Brothers, Barnum Bailey Circus). Includes a KING bed, dinette set for two, as well as small fridge, microwave. Complimentary self-serve coffee in our Coffee Shop (opens 8a daily).

You'll have 1 private room, and 1 private bathroom with tiled shower. You can enjoy all the on-site amenities of The Reserve Retreat, or venture out to convenient, close locations downtown or across the bridge to the beaches. It's the ideal location for those who love culture, as we're close to many cultural attractions, as well as the beach lover. There is also low-cost ground transportation between our location and most points of interest downtown.

Where you’ll be

Sarasota, Florida, United States

Neighborhood has great neighbors near Downtown and across the street from the Bay. Publix (our grocery store) is just a short walk or drive away. Gas station also equally close. Very near the Van Wezel Performing Arts, Florida Studio Theater, and a host of great restaurants. There is also a playground on the Bay, across the street.
