Film & Photo Access

Bonnet House is situated on a coral barrier island bounded on the east by the Atlantic Ocean and on the west by the Intracoastal Waterway. This unique land is held today in a substantially similar state as in the 1920s when the house was built.

Bonnet House was the primary location for Will Shriner’s delightful movie “Hoot”, the television series “The Bachelor” and “The Glades” as well as the finish line for season 7 of the reality television program “The Amazing Race”.
