Here’s Johnny


I want to start by saying, “I’m sorry.”

I’ve got good news and I’ve got bad news.

The Eden House is going COMPLETELY NON-SMOKING as of January 1, 2014.

We tried only smoking on the sundeck and it just ain’t working.  Guests are complaining that it is starting to stink up there and they can’t go up there to sun bath.  Yep, the poor smoker takes the pipe again, so to speak.  I am so sorry and I hope this doesn’t disrupt your vacation too much.  If you would like to find other lodging I fully understand and we will help you find other lodging and issue you a refund.

Again, I am very sorry for any discomfort that this might have caused you and I hope you can find another place and have a wonderful vacation in Key West.

See you on the flip side,

Mike Eden



  1. No real Eden House fan would let that dissuade them from staying there!
    I was a smoker (and still do smoke, only electronic cigarettes) and I am accustomed to going elsewhere to smoke. (Yes, people complain even about electronic cigarettes.)
    I think I could walk out a few steps onto Fleming and puff away rather than miss out on staying at the wonderful Eden House.

  2. Smoking is banned in all bars in Kansas City (except the casinos) and honestly, it’s kinda nice. I don’t go home anymore with my hair and clothes smelling like smoke after a night out. I never noticed any smokers at the EH, but we never really went on the sundeck either. I noticed you can still smoke in bars in Key West. Either way, we still love the people and bars in KW, and as always, we love the EH! We just got back from KW a few weeks ago. We used our postcard winning room! It spoiled us (we are used to the shared bath). Still waiting to meet you, Mike.

    (Almost a regulaaaaar… I’ve lost track how many times we’ve stayed there… 5, 6… I don’t know, doesn’t matter, we’ll be back in January!)

  3. I am a smoker but I hate smoking around other people. When we stayed at the Eden House, I always walked outside to the street to smoke. Really not that big of a deal! I certainly wouldn’t cancel my stay because you are going non smoking!

  4. I would hope this wouldn’t deter anyone staying at the EH if they were true fans/friends of the EH. Planning a trip down, not sure when. Possibly late Fall. Hope to see you guys soon! Mike the apples are getting ready!! Come visit the end of Sept???
