Black Dolphin Inn New Smyrna Beach Florida 2013

Monday, August 5th, 2013

BlackDolphinIf you love the beach, the water, the heat, the sand, the beach bars, the seafood and stellar hospitality you’ll want to visit the Black Dolphin Inn.   I recently stayed at the Black Dolphin Inn in New Smyrna Beach, Florida.   What a fabulous Inn and perfect location on Riverside Drive overlooking the Indian River waterway.  Every aspect of the Black Dolphin Inn speaks luxury and southern grace.  This newly renovated Inn is eye catching in its Spanish-Colonial style architecture with fresh and tastefully designed modern and contemporary interior, speaking elegance in every way.  Brett and Shelia, along with their son, Taylor are gracious hosts who insure you a delightful stay. You can tell the entire family has a solid background in hospitality and they run the inn with passion and warmth exceeding the expectations of their guests.  Third generation hoteliers and identical twin Brothers Brett & Scott Smith, fell in love with this former riverfront estate.  Overlooking the Indian River on Florida’s east central Atlantic coast, Black Dolphin gets its name from the dolphins that playfully swim by its dock. The 14 guest rooms are skillfully appointed with amazing vintage finds, fine art, eclectic accents, and modern amenities.  Gorgeous views, many with French doors opening to a private balcony that seem like tree houses peeking through gnarled oaks to the Indian River.  The Black Dolphin Inn was recently selected as one of the “Top Ten B & B’s” awarded in 2013 by BedandBreakfast.com.  The Black Dolphin Inn is not just a place to stay, it is a reason to go to New Smyrna Beach. The breakfast is beautifully displayed with locally sourced sustainable foods, which is expanded to include additional dishes such as steel-mill grits and southern home-fried potatoes. In nearby New Smyrna, walking distance from the inn, funky seaside restaurants are abundant as well as beach-side galleries, surf shops, and sprawling beaches. Overnight docking is available at the Black Dolphin for guests with boats. Even without a boat, fishing opportunities are plentiful at nearby Canaveral National Seashore Park.   While standing outside I was greeted by the bottle nose dolphins from the dock.  The Black Dolphin provides a retreat for the mind, body, and soul.
