A Florida Resort Like No Other…
Cheeca Lodge is a relaxing retreat surrounded by the charm of the Florida Keys and has been an important part of the Islamorada community for decades. Cheeca Lodge’s history began in 1946, when Mrs. Clara Mae Downey, owner of the Olney Inn outside Washington, D.C., built the Islamorada Olney Inn on the present site. The next owners were the heirs of the A & P grocery chain, Carl and Cynthia “Che-Che” Twitchell, who completely rebuilt the resort and renamed it “Cheeca” by merging their names.
