Area B&B’s invite you to be their guest
Mango Inn, Lake Worth
By Mary Thurwachter
There’s a doctor and two nurses calling the shots at The Mango Inn, but don’t let that mislead you. This casually elegant 10-room B&B housed in three structures built between 1915 and 1920 bears not a stitch of resemblance to a hospital. Within walking distance of downtown shops and restaurants, the inn has artfully decorated rooms, lush tropical gardens and a pool (breakfast — both nutritious and yummy — is typically served on the veranda beside it). The beach is just a 15-minute stroll away!
Siblings Judi Flynn and Debbie Null are nurses, and Debbie’s husband, Bill Null, is an orthopedic surgeon. Judi, whose ex-husband is a surgeon, and Debbie say both have done a lot of entertaining, so the transition to running a B&B seemed a good idea. After a getaway here, your guests are sure to feel rested and recharged from the surroundings and all the TLC. Come to think of it, you just may want to join them, if only for mango margaritas by the pool! Room rates start at $155 per night. 128 N. Lakeside Drive, Lake Worth. (561) 533-6900. www.mangoinn.com.
