Review Highlights
Get a tast of what living on the barrier island was like 100 years ago with the rocking chairs on the porch!

Didn't go inside, but rocking on the porch looking out across the sound was like going back in time.

Very interesting information on the history of this area. There is a video and lots of pictures describing the community that lived along the river when the only travel was by steamboat. Nice setting and wildlife abounds (birds, armadillos!).

The setting is great and the historical photos and movie were enlightening. It is amazing what the area was like in the past and what early settlers had to endure to get here. It is great it is being preserved.

My understanding is the Eldora House is closed at the moment for repairs from damages during Hurricane Irma. The drive through a portion of Canaveral National Seashore to access the house is very pleasant. We see lots of wildlife especially when our visit is early...More
