Henderson Park Inn, Destin, FL

Elizabeth Pointe Lodge, Amelia Island, FL
Average November High: 72°
Why We Love It: Elizabeth Pointe's owners, David and Susan Caples, are veteran innkeepers–they opened one of the first B&Bs on Amelia Island in 1980 before building Elizabeth Pointe in 1992. That experience pays off in the lodge's amenities: The kitchen stays open 24 hours a day; breakfast options include eggs Benedict, French toast, and homemade orange bread; and wine awaits when the sun goes down.

Turtle Beach Resort, Siesta Key, FL
Average November High: 80°
Why We Love It: When David and Gail Rubinfeld first started work on a cluster of cottages in 1991, the buildings sat on a barren bayside strip. Now the block blooms with hibiscus flowers and palm trees. Each cottage room, as well as those in an adjacent inn the couple added six years ago, features original artwork by Gail and her late sister, Marian Rosenfeld. Don't stay inside too long–once you leave the room, you get free use of kayaks or canoes.
