Eden House History

We’d like to welcome you to the Eden House. Built it in 1924, then it was called the Gibson Hotel. 

Originally, the Eden House was only the main building. The surrounding buildings were added over the next five or so years. 

The movie Criss Cross starring Goldie Hawn was filmed at the Eden House for five months over the summer of 1990. Scott Summers wrote the short story Criss Cross while staying at the Eden House in early 1976. The movie is average at best, but it does capture the feel of the island in the 70’s. Pictures and memorabilia from the movie can be found throughout the hotel. You can see some pictures on our gallery page too. 

We hope you enjoy your stay with us, and your visit to Key West!
