We loved the tropical courtyard of the Sabal Palm House Bed and Breakfast when we first arrived over 11 years ago. Nothing represents the Florida lifestyle more than being able to sit outside in January with 80 degree temps under palm trees and sunshine. This year we have added new landscaping and furniture so that our guests can enjoy this lovely area even more. Guests can now melt away their winter stress, enjoy the sun, read a book or simply daydream the afternoon away listening to the fountains and birds.

Many of our guests love the Lake Worth Casino Building and Beach Complex. We always have to confirm that it is the only casino where you are guaranteed not to lose money--as there is no gambling. The original casino was constructed in the 1920's when the word 'casino' was an Italian word to donote a country house or cottage that was a center of social gathering. Italian locals would convene at the casino for town functions such as dancing, music, eating, drinking and, you guessed it, gambling.

Today we here in the beautiful City of Lake Worth love to convene at our Casino to eat, drink, dance to the music with great views of the ocean and sounds of the surf without the clanging of slot machines. :)

Today we had a delicious lunch at Mulligans Beach House Bar and Grill at the Lake Worth Casino building. What a beautiful day to sit by the ocean and enjoy great food and live steel drum music. We are very happy with all the improvements being made up at Lake Worth Beach and look foward to seeing the parking lot, children's play area and lush green space completed by the new year!

We are excited about the progress being made at Lake Worth Beach. The design of the new Lake Worth Casino Building brings history alive with its Mediterranean-style architecture from the original 1920’s building.   The exterior of the building will be completed next month and tenants will soon be able to begin building their spaces and moving in. The building is expected to open with restaurants and shops by the end of the year.  The $13 million  project will make our beach one of the best attractions by the ocean in Palm Beach County.

The Sabal Palm House Bed and Breakfast overlooks the Snook Islands Natural Area restoration project which consists of 11 acres of mangroves, 2.2 acres of oyster reefs, 3.8 acres of Spartina grass, and over 60 acres of potential seagrass habitat. The Snook Island project has effectively added 100 acres of good quality wetland habitat to the central part of Lake Worth Lagoon and is improving the poor water quality in this area. Seagrasses are already recruiting in the shallow-water habitat, birds are utilizing the open areas of shoreline and mud flats, and fishermen have reported catching numerous large snook, redfish, snapper, jacks and flounder. We are very excited about the grand opening of the Snook Islands Natural Area Fishing Pier and Boardwalk on February 29, 2012 which will include:

  • A 545-foot boardwalk winding around the southernmost island. A covered observation platform with benches is planned at the end of the boardwalk, creating a spot to watch birds and fish foraging around the mangroves and sea grasses.
  • A 580-foot fishing pier on the north side of the Lake Avenue bridge.
  • A dock that will handle up to eight boats for day use and serve as a water-taxi stop.
  • A floating kayak launch with a drop-off area for loading and unloading canoes and kayaks.

Guest will now be able to take a private guided kayak tour of the islands of the Lake Worth Lagoon Estuary from one to four people with Kayak Lake Worth -- also see some pictures of the our kayak tour. Please click on the The Florida Circumnavigational Saltwater Paddling Trail for more information on seeing Florida by kayak. Learn more at http://www.kayaklakeworth.com/rentals.htm

Lake Worth, Florida has become one of the best music scenes in South Florida with great venues like the Bamboo Room, Speakeasy Lounge, South Shores Tavern, Propoganda, etc. So it was no surprise to us that Jimmy Buffett, who has a home on Palm Beach just a few miles from Lake Worth, decided to make a visit to our downtown Thursday with his band the Coral Reefers. Every so often you hear about the “secret show” — one where out of the blue, some big-name musical act pops up in a bar near you. That bar was the Bamboo Room, and the artist was Jimmy Buffett. Guests at the Sabal Palm House have the advantage of being within walking distance to all the wonderful shops, restaurants, and clubs like our very own Bamboo Room. With warm and sunny temperatures in the 80's and one of the best beaches in Palm Beach County, Lake Worth is a must see destination.

Thank you to all our guests for making the 2011 High Season a great one. Now that we are in the Quiet Season, Palm Beach County is a wonderful place to come for great discounts here at the Sabal Palm House B&B and at all of the wonderful restaurants, golf courses and attractions. See our Specials Page for more details. Today we enjoyed our area with a visit to the new jetty at the Boynton Beach Inlet. The jetty reopened recently after being closed 26 months for a $7.4 million project. There were many chances to catch some fish or just look down and see the sea life swim by. We got some great pictures of a the fish jumping out of the water and a beautiful stingray flying through the water. We are so fortunate to be so close to this natural beauty.

A beautiful winter's day in Lake Worth, Florida. Today we decided to go over to Lake Worth Beach and have lunch at Benny's On The Beach. We sat upstairs direcly over the ocean. See some of the pictures we took as we strolled along the beach. It was wonderful to see so many people were taking advantage of the 75 degree weather and bright sunny sky. Our blue warm waters are a direct result of the Gulf Stream which runs closest to the United States here in Palm Beach County. The Gulf Stream helps to keep us warm in winter and cool in summer. The water colors were absolutely amazing today.

Happy New Year! This weekend we were thrilled to bring in the New Year with our first doggy guest of 2011--Holly, the beautiful and well-behaved miniature Poodle. She and her Mom and Dad enjoyed the spacious pet-friendly Gallery Suite and walking, shopping and eating in dog-friendly downtown Lake Worth. They love art and were very impressed with the Clay Glass Metal Stone Gallery in our downtown. They were also excited to meet all of our wonderfully artistic neighbors and have already made a reservation for this year's Street Painting Festival. Thank you Holly for bringing your Mom and Dad to our home.

It was wonderful to see some familiar faces like Pickled Pink and some new like Olive Oil of the World. This season they added "Canal Street South" --an additional venue to the south side of the farmer’s market that is presented in the Paris Street Flea Market format with lovely crafts, art, and jewelry.

Peter Robinson and all the vendors have done another wonderful job! Come and enjoy a true farmer’s market just across the bridge from the Sabal Palm House B&B every Saturday from 8 AM to 1 PM until May.

As you may already know, we here at the Sabal Palm House Bed and Breakfast love art and nature. That is why we are so happy to live in Palm Beach County, "Florida's Cultural Capital," where we are so close some of the greatest museums and gardens in the world. It is wonderful that the Norton Museum is so close and this month we are even more excited that they have received Vincent van Gogh’s Self-Portrait on loan from the National Gallery of Art until February 8, 2011. While visiting Vincent, you are surrounded by many other great masterpieces that take you away to another time and place. One of my favorite places to stop is at glass artist Dale Chihuly's Persian Sealife Ceiling. This is a perfect place to relax and feel like you are floating under water looking up at beautifully colored sea life.

To enjoy some nature with your art and also a beautiful place to see some of Dale Chihuly's work is at the Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden just an hour and 15 minutes south in Coconut Grove. The incredible art of Dale Chilhuly has a strong link to Fairchild. Chihuly has twice been the featured artist for Fairchild's art program. There are three displays of Chihuly's blown glass that have found a permanent home at Fairchild. For more information about art and culture in Palm Beach County, please go to the Palm Beach Cultural Council's website.

We had an amazing kayak trip last night with Ian Esplin of Kayak Lake Worth. Ian did everything from having the kayaks waiting for us at a sandy spot south of the Bryant Park Boat Ramp, providing ice cold bottled water and healthy snacks, and last but not least wonderful pictures of our journey all of which is included in the very resonable price of $40/person now through October. All we had to do was stroll over, sit down, and paddle. Ian is very knowledgeable of the wild life and pointed out some beautiful oystercatcher birds resting on one of the islands where we stopped to rest. It was very fitting that as we paddled past the area in front of the Sabal Palm House B&B, romance was in the air--we were able to witness a mating herd of manatee. In shallower waters by the Snook Islands, the effect was quite dramatic with churning waters and flailing flukes and flippers. We were a little concerned and made Ian go first. It was absolutely amazing. We are so happy that we can recommend Kayak Lake Worth to all of our guests.

As Innkeepers, people always ask where we go on vacation. This year we decided to be tourist in our hometown of New York. We were up for a family wedding and decided to spend some time with friends in Orange County, NY and dropped in on Jack Trowell, owner of the beautiful Cromwell Manor B&B in Cornwall, NY. Cromwell Manor is in a beautiful location and Jack and his staff do a wonderful job and are very friendly. We then drove into Manhattan and stayed at the Wyman House -- an old brownstone on Riverside Drive between 75th and 76th. The owner Pam was very helpful. We were close to public transportation but chose to do a lot of walking on the Hudson River walkway and in Riverside and Central Parks. We always come home with some fresh ideas to make our guests more comfortable and relaxed, and we are now happy to be back so we can do just that.

Lake Worth has many wonderful restaurants within walking distance from the Sabal Palm House B&B. Two of these restaurants will transport you to Asia.

For a fantastic and authentic Indian meal, Friday night at The Pelican Restaurant is the place to go. "This is not the Americanized version of the cuisine," said J. Gwendolynne Berry of the Palm Beach Post.

Thai and Japanese food dominate the menu at the relaxing atmosphere of Safire Asian Fusion Restaurant. The service is excellent and the food makes your taste buds dance.

Be sure to visit our Restaurants Page to find a restaurant that will transport you to another Continent without leaving Downtown Lake Worth.

The Sabal Palm House B&B is fortunate to be just down the street from the newly renovated Bryant Park. The Bryant Park Seawall Restoration Project is now complete and there is a brand new sidewalk along the seawall where you can stroll and look over the Lake Worth Lagoon and catch a glimpse of a manatee. Stay on the path going south passed the boat ramp and small pier and you will find a outdoor fitness station. Don't forget the wonderful bandshell in the park that hosts great music events throughout the year. We and Willie really enjoy taking advantage of one of the great assets that Lake Worth has to offer.

One of the things we love about living in South Florida is having flowering, tropical plants all year long. This time of year the Royal Poinciana trees are their most beautiful. We are lucky to have one of these beautiful trees just down the street from us in a small park at the base of the bridge next to Bryant Park. It is lovely to sit on the front balcony of our Rockwell and Dali rooms and enjoy the magnificent view.

Mom and Dad own a Harley so they stopped at Paws on the Avenue and Jenny bought a "Biker Babe" t-shirt to wear next time she is here for Lake Worth's Bike Night. We look forward to seeing them all again.

Happy Cinco de Mayo! All our guests were out enjoying the wonderful weather so to celebrate this festive holiday of our neighbors to the south (or west for us), we went to The Taco Lady in Downtown Lake Worth and ordered some of the best tacos in Palm Beach County. We brought them back to the B&B and enjoyed them in our tropical courtyard while drinking margaritas and listening to Mexican music. We then went over to Lake Worth Beach and took a little siesta and a walk along the beach to see all the activities that can be done--sailing or jetski anyone? Another day in paradise.

This weekend we were happy to host the beautiful and well-behaved Lhasa apso Dali and her Mom and Dad. They all enjoyed the relaxing Gallery Suite and walking, shopping and eating in dog-friendly downtown Lake Worth. They especially enjoyed having lunch at Ouzo Blue Greek restaurant where they said the service and food were excellent. They stopped at Paws on the Avenue and Dali bought treats that were poultry-free for her sensitive stomach and some new toys. Dali's Mom was thrilled with finding her Grandmother's crystal pattern 75% off at the Yesterday's Antique Mall. Willie and we look forward to seeing them all again.

Last night we attended the first annual Palm Beach Harvest fundraiser "La Fete du Masque" at Lake Worth's wonderful Paradiso Restaurant to benefit Palm Beach Harvest and to celebrate their 12th anniversary helping to feed the hungry of Palm Beach County.

Today, We visited the lovely Pan's Garden in Palm Beach. This area was a parking lot before The Preservation Foundation of Palm Beach converted this lovely space in 1994. Pan’s Garden is a unique botanical garden consisting of over 300 native Florida plant species. It is a wonderful, free public space for all to visit and enjoy nature. It just proves that you do not have to be rich to experience a moment of luxury in Palm Beach.

We are thrilled that Lake Worth is being recognized for its old Florida style with a young, cool feel. Please read Froma Harrop's editorial in the Wednesday, February 17, 2010 pages of The Providence Journal: "Froma Harrop: The coolness of Florida is not in old people but old Florida"

Sabal Palm House Bed and Breakfast

 

Excerpt from Editorial:

"Lake Worth is now filled from sunrise to the wee hours with venues that would have appealed to Arthur Godfrey, Xavier Cugat, Lady Gaga or all three. There’s an old-school French restaurant, a Jewish deli, Havana-inspired cafés, surfer bars, gay clubs and more than one Irish pub.

Every generation of cool people is served: There’s a kava bar for hipsters, Birkenstock distributor for hippies and medical-supply stores for those with new hips. Coolness, of course, has little to do with age — as noted in a visit to The Cottage, a bar-and-outdoors restaurant that attracts a diverse clientele. At one table, a group of Medicare beneficiaries were drinking, laughing and carrying on. At another, a trio of pretty young women sat somberly, as they checked their makeup.

Today is Norman Rockwell's Birthday. Yesterday I went to the wonderful exhibit "American Chronicles: The Art of Norman Rockwell" at the Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale. I loved seeing 20th Century American history through the stories told in Rockwell's paintings and prints. Rockwell showed some of the best of everyday American life (a Day in the Life of a Little Girl) as well as some of our not so wonderful moments (Problem we all Live With). In today's day of the Internet and blogs, it was wonderful to see Rockwell's beautiful way of telling a story without words. Norman Rockwell is a wonderful artist and we are proud to have one of our rooms named after him. See our Norman Rockwell Room.

Today we had a wonderful day watching some of the world's premier equestrian competitors at the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center in the lovely Village of Wellington in Palm Beach County, FL, just 12 miles west from the Sabal Palm House Bed and Breakfast.

It was amazing to watch the wonderful partnership of horse and rider in the thrills of jumping on a January afternoon while basking in South Florida sunshine. The Showgrounds and The Stadium, cover more than 150 acres offering equestrian competition and entertainment that cannot be found anywhere in the world. There are galleries, wine and coffee bars, upscale and casual eateries and comfortable outdoor seating where you can watch all the beautiful four-legged and two-legged creatures go by.

Palm Beach County’s Sabal Palm House Bed & Breakfast awarded AAA Four Diamonds for Eleven Consecutive Years.

December 8, 2009

AAA has awarded its 2010 Four-Diamond rating to the Sabal Palm House Bed & Breakfast in Lake Worth, FL for an 11th consecutive year.  With views of the Lake Worth Municipal Golf Course and the Intracoastal Waterway, this B&B is only a half mile from the Atlantic Ocean, within walking distance to trendy Lake Worth shops and restaurants and a short drive to Palm Beach and Worth Avenue.  Guests can choose among seven romantic rooms named after and decorated in the style of famous artists such as Renoir and Michelangelo and include the finest luxury linens and amenities.  All rooms have private baths with two rooms, including a luxurious two-room suite, offer romantic whirlpool spa tubs for two. 

Since 2003, owners and innkeepers Colleen and John Rinaldi have been welcoming guests to the comforts of home along with complimentary breakfast in the morning, fresh-baked treats in the the afternoon, evening turn-down service, bottled water, beverages and wine, and the latest technology with free WiFi accessibility, flat panal HD TVs and DVDs. 

Colleen prepares homemade muffins in the morning and afternoon tea along with home-baked delights served daily to B&B guests.  John, a former personal injury attorney, prepares a delicious gourmet breakfast every morning.  “We joke with guests that this is the only place you can be served by an attorney and enjoy it,” said Colleen. “We love the tropical weather.  Our location in downtown Lake Worth is close to the beach, great restaurants, antique shops and art galleries.” said John.

The 1936 two-story luxury B&B is one of only two B&Bs from Orlando to Miami to receive four diamonds from AAA  and joins an elite circle of Four Diamond winners with only four percent of the estimated 31,000 AAA-rated lodgings attaining this high level of excellence.  AAA stated that “the most notable trend represented is the industry-wide shift to residential-inspired design and amenities in response to guests' desire for a lodging experience more reminiscent of home.” 

Sabal Palm House Bed and Breakfast’s affordable rates range from $145 – $265 until April 30, 2010 and $115 - $199 from May 1 – November 15, 2010. They also provide AAA discounts as well as romantic specials.  Reservations can be made easily online at www.sabalpalmhouse.com or by calling John and Colleen at 888-722-2572.

The course took advantage of the area’s magnificent, tree-line historic neighborhoods, while incorporating over 65% of scenic waterfront vistas, and the Sabal Palm House B&B at mile 7.

Today was an absolutely beautiful Fall day in South Florida--85 degrees and sunny. We took a lovely drive up to the Riveria Beach Marina and said hello to Mark at Blue Water Powerboat Rentals. They provide brand new boats and jetskis that our guests can rent to go out on the calm intracoastal waters or the beautiful blue gulfstream waters of the Atlantic Ocean.

While up north, we went across the Blue Heron Bridge to Singer Island and had a drink at the Sailfish Marina Restaurant overlooking the Intracoastal and Peanut Island. What a great day!

The Bonnet House was built by Frederic Clay Bartlett in 1920 and is a wonderful example of Florida in the early part of the 20th century. The Bartletts were artists, and our visit gave us many ideas for the artistically-inspired Sabal Palm House B&B's gardens and rooms.

As owners of a bed and breakfast, we share our guests love of travel and exploration of new places. We recently returned from a wonderful trip to Paris where we found some of the original paintings we have at our inn. We explored the city, found great local restaurants and traveled to Monet's home just outside of Paris where we found a bed and breakfast in the French countryside. We had to stop in and meet the owners to share stories. It is amazing how similar we all are. As much as we enjoy traveling, we love coming home to Palm Beach. We realize how lucky we are to live in a place that is warm and sunny all year, has such beautiful beaches, world-class golf courses, fabulous museums and gardens and wonderful restaurants and shops. We hope to share with you some of the great things happening here in Palm Beach and to post news about the Sabal Palm House, ourselves, our guests and all the fun things happening here in South Florida. --Colleen and John Rinaldi, Owners/Innkeepers
