Islamorada Cheeca Lodge and Spa

Back in 1946, Clara May Downey from Olney, Maryland bought the property that would eventually become the world famous Cheeca Lodge and Spa. She established the Islamorada Olney Inn. The very first guest at the inn was President Harry S. Truman. Many other famous people would eventually stay at the inn. In the 1960s, hurricanes destroyed most the bungalows that lined the property, forcing Downey to sell the land. The new owner, Cynthia Twitchell, bought the inn and renamed it the Cheeca Lodge. She combined her nickname, Chee, with her husband’s name, Carl. The current Cheeca Lodge and Spa offers five star services to all of its visitors. It is a prime location for families, honeymooners, wedding parties, and any casual traveller. There are four wonderful restaurants on site, and a 9-hole course designed by the golf legend himself, Jack Nicklaus. Other amenities include a game room for the kids, 6 tennis courts, beach cruiser bike rentals, paddle board rentals, kayak rentals, fishing rod rentals (so you can fish from the famous 525 foot pier,) fishing charters, and watersports. Make the Cheeca Lodge and Spa your next vacation destination, or stop by for a meal at one of the four restaurants.
