The Curry House is a historic home located in Key West. It was built and then transported to the island in 1889 and for many years served as the home of the Curry family. This bed and breakfast is at the heart of a charming Old Town Key West neighborhood and just three blocks from the Historic Seaport District.
Fun Curry House Trivia
Today the Curry House is one of Key West’s impressive old homes, but guests often question the room numbering when staying at the Curry House Bed and Breakfast. Room numbers 1-4 are located on the second floor, rooms 7-9 are on the third floor, and rooms 5-6 are found on the first floor. While the numbering may seem strange, it is really a bit of living history.
The story behind the numbering goes back to Pearl Curry who was widowed in 1943. Just before she lost her husband, she had opened the second floor of her home to the wives of military officers. Back then she called her house Curry’s Rooms. As the property has evolved, those rooms on the second floor have retained their original numbers.
At the Curry House Bed and Breakfast you can expect a hot breakfast daily. In fact, it is one of the few places on Key West equipped to serve a full breakfast. Rooms are equipped with a small refrigerator, hairdryer, cable TV, and direct access to a porch or balcony (except for room 9 which is the attic room).
Some rooms have a private bathroom while others share a bathroom. All the rooms have either a queen or king size bed. Other amenities available to the guests include Internet access, a small library, and an in-ground heated pool (and outdoor shower). This historic bed and breakfast makes a perfect home away from home in Key West.
