Melbourne Beach, Fla.
Port d’Hiver “brings history, nature, privacy, and comfort
together in one luxurious retreat,” said Mary Thurwachter in The Miami Herald. The stately home, built in 1916, once belonged to Florida sophisticate Walter Brown. Recently, it’s been transformed into an elegant 11-room inn. Most rooms feature “a giant whirlpool tub,” a porch overlooking the pool, and king-size beds “with high-thread-count sheets meticulously ironed and stretched across a feather-top mattress.” But what separates the seaside inn is hospitality: “breakfasts fit for royalty” and a “concierge service to rival anything a five-star resort has to offer.”
