Caroline's River Dining
We are thrilled to announce the completion of the new dining gazebo constructed on our docks at Caroline's River Dining. When you stay at the Inn, plan to enjoy your complimentary cooked to order breakfast on the gazebo watching the local "traffic" glide by. The "traffic," is a little different that what you may be used to....could be feeding porpoises, manatees seeking river vegetation, the big decades-old gator that inhabits the island across the river, a family of crafty otters hugging the river's edge, shrimp and oyster boats getting an early start on the day, a gliding pellican eyeing the river for breakfast and the always busy seagulls. The sunrise is legendary and pictured on our website's home page. Needless to say, the food is just as good as the view! 850-653-8139
