Restored. Renovated. Remarkable.
And now, Seadog Cottages is historic.
The Safety Harbor Historic Society made it official, designating “Tampa Bay’s Premier Bed And Get Your Own Damn Breakfast” as an historic property during a ceremony and marker unveiling on May 3, making it just the city’s 19th location to receive the distinction.
It has been an amazing journey for the circa 1922 home – the residence of Seadog proprietors Mick and Desanya – and adjoining guest homes that were once in disrepair and near demolition.
When Mick and Desanya took ownership of the property in the summer of 2011, they were immediately told by multiple contractors that their best course forward was to “bulldoze the whole place and start over."
They chose the more difficult route, agreeing that preserving the history and romance of the property was worth the effort.
Finally, almost eight years after taking on an historic challenge, Seadog Cottages is alive and well, historic and new,
Ready and waiting on you.
