General Info
Hickatee Cottages is a quaint bed & breakfast lodge approximately 1.5 miles from the Punta Gorda Town. Built-in 2005 on 20 acres, it has been created with minimal impact on the environment, and maximum benefit to the community by using local contractors, labor, and suppliers. A small part of the land had been cleared several years before for small-scale farming and it is only this area that has been re-developed for the Cottages and the farm. The ‘lion’s share’ of Hickatee Cottages is in its original natural state, with many large trees and lush vegetation and is home to an array of wildlife – howler monkeys, toucans, hummingbirds, blue morpho butterflies, bats, and a number of other little critters!

We are outside of the Punta Gorda city limits and we are off-grid, predominately solar-powered, with comfortable rooms, a low-key relaxed atmosphere, and personal service. We pride ourselves on giving excellent value for the money and enjoy sharing our home with every traveler!

Hickatee offers 6 cottages with rooms ranging in size and price from the smallest, Hickatee Den, up to the Honeymoon Suite, the largest and most private of our rooms. Each room has its own entrance and en-suite facilities, including fully screened windows for excellent ventilation, ceiling fans, hot showers, and the lovely sounds of our resident troop of howler monkeys.
Our facilities also include Ex-Servicemen’s Bar, which is at the heart of Hickatee Cottages. The building serves as our bar, restaurant, reception, and information center! We have plenty of seating inside to relax with a book from our library or sit at the bar, as well as dining tables on the deck for breakfast, light appetizer, and dinner services. Our cozy bar is stocked with local beers and spirits, a small selection of imported wines, and cold soft drinks.

Our room rates include transfer to/from the local airstrip, morning coffee or tea, light continental breakfast, internet access for light browsing within the property grounds, use of bikes to explore the local area, free Garifuna Drumming lessons for guests staying on a Wednesday night and an exclusive Fallen Stones butterfly farm tour for guests (currently tours are on Thursday of each week).
