This new Wedding venue has popped up on our radar and it is a great spot for an outdoor keys wedding. The property is located in Key Largo making it a bit easier of a journey from the airport for guests who may be traveling from out of town. It is waterfront and very spacious. The property itself has been in the same family for 6 generations and it one of the oldest examples of 1920's Florida Keys architecture. The homes on the property are full of character and hold vintage surprised around every corner. Here is the low down on the property's history.
This unique property is an unforgettable slice of 1920's Key Largo. Because of its size and location, Historic Shadow Point is very popular for weddings, family gatherings, and other special events. They have catered to guests from all over the world, and many come back year after year. The vintage Cottages are situated on a secluded, shady peninsula surrounded by water on three sides, with clear views of mangrove islands and abundant wildlife. Built in the 1900s by a sailing ship's captain, each house represents early Keys architecture from the pioneering times of Florida. The property was acquired by the same family who still owns it to this day. They have worked very hard over the generations to keep the houses as original as possible. The homes are decorated with pieces reflecting the years of being connected to the local waters. Their ancestor, Marvin D. Adams, is responsible for constructing the canal that bisects Key Largo. Known as The Cut to locals, The Marvin D. Adams Waterway allows boaters to travel conveniently from the Atlantic Ocean side to the Gulf of Mexico in minutes. The structures on the property are likely the oldest original residential homes still intact and in use on all of Key Largo.
Guests who rent Historic Shadow Point will enjoy many extras, including the use of paddle boards, kayaks, floating tubes, life jackets and snorkel equipment located on-site. Shadow Point has a private sandy beach for swimming, snorkeling, sunbathing, and launching kayaks into the beautiful waters of Largo Sound. Also available for use are a gas barbeque grill and equipment. There are several shady spots to have evening dinners outside or fun picnics under the Gumbo Limbos. There are two fully stocked kitchens, one in each house. There is even a full laundry facility in the Cottage.
