Idlewild Cottage

@ Indian Rocks Beach

 History of Idlewild

Built in 1919, Idlewild has gone through various owners during the century.  As a sign of its allure, the house has only had about seven owners since being built.  In its early history, Indian Rocks Beach was the playground for the rich of Tampa.  They spent their weekends, holidays and summers in cottages they owned on Indian Rocks Beach.
