Artistic AAA Four Diamond Bed and Breakfast just South of Palm Beach
Lake Worth, Florida, has more than 1,000 feet of beachfront that extend along the Intracoastal Waterway and the Atlantic Ocean to the shores of luxurious Palm Beach. Here, you'll find golf courses, diving centers for snorkeling, and quiet beaches where you can soak up the sun. A short jaunt south of Palm Beach, the romantic Sabal Palm House Bed and Breakfast puts you close to any of these relaxing activities and just steps from Lake Worth's artistic downtown area.
Tropical flowers and palm trees surround the bed and breakfast, and antique furnishings lend the interior an Old-World elegance. In the guest rooms and suites, the decor was inspired by famous artists such as Renoir, Chagall, and Degas. Bold floral prints in the Chagall room recall the artist's fondness for flowers and complement the room’s mahogany four-poster bed and the balcony overlooking the hotel's gardens. Small dogs are welcome to tag along in the roomy Gallery suite, which features a private bedroom and a living room with a velvety red sofa.
Throughout the day, the bed and breakfast treats you to an assortment of baked goods and tea. The beautifully landscaped tropical courtyard makes for a romantic setting to savor entrees such as apple-pie pancakes, stuffed french toast, or housemade frittatas during the inn’s gourmet breakfast. Later in the day, you can pamper yourself at Kaffee's Garden Spa, where attentive therapists perform full-body massages and facials infused with natural ingredients (a spa credit is included). Use your included credit toward rentals at Relentless Bicycles to explore the area.
Lake Worth, Florida: Scenic Beach Town Along Intracoastal Waterway
A few miles south of Palm Beach, Lake Worth boasts a distinctly small-town spirit. The art-inspired downtown area charms with art-deco and Spanish-style buildings housing bistros, galleries, and antique shops. Up north, Palm Beach's upscale Worth Avenue draws shoppers to jewelers and big-name designer boutiques such as Jimmy Choo, Gucci, and Chanel. Cobblestone courtyards and tropical gardens reminiscent of Venice provide an intriguing atmosphere for the local consignment shops and restaurants that line the avenue. To experience a taste of old-Florida culture, visit the Flagler Museum located inside the turn-of-the-century Whitehall Estate, a Gilded Age mansion that's revered as one of the country’s grandest homes.
With the Atlantic Ocean on one side and the Intracoastal Waterway on the other, both Lake Worth and Palm Beach have plenty of watersports. Kayaking around the nearby Snook Islands Natural Area is a popular pastime, and those scuba diving along the Atlantic coast can spot coral reefs and sunken ships.
