Scruggs Harbor is an original beach compound settled in the early 1900's. Each place is unique and on a prime beach location. We are centrally located and close to everything in Town. All of our places are nicely furnished and fully stocked and you need only to bring a change of clothes and a bathing suit. We are an award winning property and most of our places have been featured in calendars and cards. Do check us out!

One of my favorite places to stay on the West Coast. Scruggs Harbor is a rare "find" in Indian Rocks Beach. The location is primo and the cottages remind one of the cottages when were kids. Very clean, well decorated and on a prime beachfront location. Everyone is very helpful and makes you feel special. Would recommend this place to anyone who wants to get a bit of " old Florida".

This is an incredible spot directly on the Gulf. The places are historic but upgraded and totally unique. My family loves coming there and have for many years. It is truly an "oasis" and the management is very helpful and friendly. I'd recommend it to everyone. The best place ever to unwind, walk the beach and just relax.

This is an old Florida cottage, and I should know cuz I am an old Floridian...LOL.. Truly a gem on the gulf! We spent Hurricane Frances in the cottage and felt safer than any of the other buildings. We finally left after 2 days without power--but only to go check on our house in Tampa. I say if it has been there since the 20's, then it's THE only place to be on the beach during a 'cane. (If you are as crazy as we are!). Very very comfortable, no hoopla, just a great house on the beach!
