Listen to live music as you sip & snack from our bar menu. Visit pre-Columbian Mounds of the ancient Calusa, play golf, paddle the Great Calusa Blueway, take a day-trip fishing, or enjoy birding and pristine nature while boating to our sister resort Cabbage Key. Welcome to our piece of paradise!



We are located as far south as you can possible go to the end of Pine Island Florida, unless you drive into the water of course! You truly can’t get any closer to the Ocean than when you stay at the SOUTHERNMOST INN. Newly remodeled rooms, with the most quaint setting you will find on Pine Island we think you’ll want to know when you can book your next stay before you even leave.
