A prominent feature of the Watercolor community is the Watercolor Inn.

WaterColor Florida was also listed as a Fodor’ Choice for 2010. The Inn was designed by acclaimed restaurant designer, David Rockwell. The Inn captures the essence of a tranquil getaway. The perfect combination of Florida family resort, warm Southern hospitality, the intimacy of a bed and breakfast, and the fun of a classic beach house, the WaterColor Inn & Resort creates the ideal setting to relax—and to play. Maybe that’s why families have been visiting our Inn & Resort year after year. We invite you to visit our beautiful property, and start a tradition of your very own.
