Award- Winning Boutique inn in New Smyrna Beach, Florida  

A quaint Old Florida beach town is the setting for this elegant Spanish-Isle boutique inn overlooking the Indian River in New Smyrna Beach on Florida’s east-central Atlantic Coast. The 14-room inn gets its name from the plentiful dolphin who gracefully patrol the waters off its dock. Accommodations include guest rooms and suites with balconies and outdoor terraces, elegant Euro-style bedding, and spa–inspired bathrooms with jetted tubs. Furnishings vary in each room with original artwork and antiques tastefully integrated with modern sensibilities and décor. Eight of the suites and guest rooms are equipped with wet bars. The owners, identical twin brothers Brett & Scott Smith, are third generation hoteliers who fell in love with this former riverfront estate three years ago and set to work on a vision for its renovation. Guests share the modern and expansive Great Room on the first floor level which includes a bar, open kitchen, sitting area and breakfast room. A complimentary continental breakfast is served daily with a full Southern-style breakfast on weekends. You are within walking distance of restaurants and shops in New Smyrna Beach’s historic downtown and a short distance from the seaside community’s sprawling beaches, surf shops, and Flagler Avenue’s beach-side galleries and eateries. Overnight dockage is available for guests with boats, and fishing opportunities are abundant in the backwaters and bays of the Indian River Lagoon and nearby Canaveral National Seashore Park. Or just sit on the dock, sip a glass of wine, and watch the dolphins swim by.
