The Inn’s setting is spectacular, situated directly on the beach, allowing each room a view of the Gulf of Mexico. Guests can take advantage of the location of Henderson Park Inn next to the beachside State Preserve by lounging on inclusive beach chairs with umbrellas, enjoying a picnic on the beach with a gourmet boxed lunch (also inclusive), or bicycling down Scenic 98 and the charming seaside neighborhood of Crystal Beach.

For lunch, grab your picnic style lunch provided by the Inn and claim a spot for two on the private beach access — there’s ample room to find some seclusion.

For dining in the evening (the only meal not included in the cost of the stay,) Beach Walk Cafe features a more intimate casual atmosphere with dining available inside with a cozy fireplace and magnificent views of the coast.
