HISTORY: Shadow Point was built in 1917 by a ship captain and later bought by Chicago Industrialist, Frank Sweeting, for his fishing friends. After his daughter and son-in-law, Leila & Marvin Adams, inherited the property, Adams spearheaded the design and construction of the nearby canal that links the bay side on the ocean side of Key Largo. It is now known by the locals as ' Adams Cut'.Named for the beautiful changing shadows and light that filter through the tropical hardwood hammock, Shadow Point is located on Key Largo Sound, the ocean side of Key Largo. Today, this estate offers the same relaxed atmosphere and seclusion of an earlier era. The 2.5-acre point is filled with lush tropical trees including Buttonwood, Gumbo Limbo, Lignum Vitae, and Key Lime.

Left on 07/13/2011 for a stay in March 2011 | Largo Newly WedsReviewed Jul 13, 2011Stayed Mar 2011
We picked Shadow Point because of it's fabulous secluded view and beautiful gardens on 2.5 acres. The house and cottage held up to 16 of us and was wonderfully decorated with period antiques. Our guests loved playing at their beach and kayaking and swimming around Key LargoSound. Our wedding was perfect with the full moon rising over our reception. We danced the night away in paradise.
