NEW LISTING! Hemingway's former home w/shared tropical pool & courtyard

Take a page out of literary history when you escape to this landmark apartment in Old Town Key West, a legendary hotel suite-turned-residence where Ernest Hemingway finished writing his iconic World War I novel, A Farewell to Arms.

This century-old apartment is located in what was once the Trev-Mor Hotel, one of the first hotels in Key West and one known for its walls of brick reclaimed from Fort Zachary Taylor. The building, which has seen its turns as a rooming house, a car dealership, a jazz club, and a residence, sits less than a block from Duval Street and its eclectic collection of restaurants, bars, and entertainment venues.

As you step inside the air-conditioned living space, you'll immediately feel the presence of Hemingway, who stayed in these rooms in 1928 after being stranded by the delayed delivery of a new Ford car. Those two weeks became two years at the Trev-Mor Hotel, as Hemingway fell in love with Key West, took regular strolls down to Mallory Square and Sloppy Joe's, and finished writing A Farewell to Arms.

Whether you've come to Key West to write or relax, you'll fall in love with the history that surrounds you. Go for morning swims in the open-air, three-story atrium, a former cistern that now houses a communal swimming pool, a grilling area, and a courtyard draped with tropical plants. Use the free WiFi to share new manuscripts with your editor, sip cocktails outside on your private balcony, and take evening walks through Key West to find endless sources of new inspiration.
