Heron's Roost is only 15 minutes away from Bahia Honda State Recreation Area which appears in the National Geographic Traveler article "America's Best Beaches". The Florida Keys are a wilderness of flowering jungles and shimmering seas, a jade necklace of mangrove-fringed islands dangling toward the tropics. Sunsets here are a pure, unadulterated spectacle that each evening attracts thousands of visitors and locals to the waterfront throughout the Keys.” Fodors.
For boaters, Bow Channel is one mile by boat for easy access to the bay and Cudjoe Gardens Marina is less than 1/2 mile. Bahia Honda State Park Beach which was voted the #1 beach in the US is a 20 minute drive to spend the day with a picnic and there are dozens of islands to explore by boat. Looe Key Marine Sanctuary, the most beautiful reef in the Keys, is nearby. The area is a trove of nature preserves by land and by sea, a birdwatcher's paradise and an explorer's dream. A truly tropical hideaway where you can walk straight outside and tickle your toes in the grass and sand, the way it used to be ... the "real" Keys.
Physical Description of this Home:
Cudjoe Key - A little Roost history...The beautiful acre with ocean views where Heron’s Roost is found was once an old hotel that served as a brothel to the hundreds of workers who came to build Henry Flagler’s railroad around 1912. Some of the original cement slabs and steps are still on the property before it too was taken by a hurricane. The Keys were only sparsely populated until the early 20th century. In 1905, however, railroad magnate Henry Flagler began building the extension of his Florida railroad south from Homestead to Key West. His goal was to establish a rail link to his steamships that sailed between Key West and Havana, just 90 miles across the Straits of Florida. The railroad arrived at Key West in 1912 and remained a lifeline of commerce until the Labor Day hurricane of 1935 washed out much of its roadbed. The Overseas Highway, built over the railroad's old roadbeds and bridges, was completed in 1938.
