House of History

House of History

Every Thursday and Saturday afternoon from 3-4 pm, there are tours offered of Sams House on Pine Island. Located about 25 minutes from the International Palms Resort, Sams House, which actually consists of the original cabin built in 1875 and a larger house built in 1888, is the oldest home in all of Brevard county. Each tour allows visitors the opportunity to take a journey back in time as they peruse interactive exhibits focusing on all of the people who once called the area home. Sams House is located right next to the Pine Island Conservation Area, so before or after your tour of the historic home, you and your family can enjoy hiking, fishing, biking, and even horseback riding on the 947-acre conservation area. When you visit an area for the first time, it can be fun and interesting to learn about the local history and culture—and the tours at Sams House allow you to do just that!

The buffet was fresh and delicious. The kids loved making their own waffles and they tasted really good. Our server Patty was awesome. This is our second time here in 2 weeks and we will definitely be back here again

“Enjoyed Our Pre-Cruise Loft!!!”
We stayed here before our cruise with as a group of four friends and had a great time!... We really enjoyed the tiki bar -- the rum buckets were great! Live music was also nice on Friday night. There were quite a few family friendly amenities and the property was right next to the beach. Would stay again!
