Fort Lauderdale

Gay Fort Lauderdale - Visit Us Today!

Fort Lauderdale has in recent years become the top gay destination of choice among many gay travelers. Fort Lauderdale features miles of white sandy beach, and 100's of gay and gay friendly businesses. Cheston House is centrally located in the heart of Ft. Lauderdale's gay lodging district. We are 1.5 blocks to the Fort Lauderdale beach and the ever popular gay beach at Sebastian Street is just a short walk away. We are also a short drive or cab ride away from all the nightlife & bars that Fort Lauderdale has to offer.

Fort Lauderdale has so many great gay restaurants, bars and shopping that we tend to loose track of them all. But, never fear, our staff stays on top of Ft. Lauderdale's gay hotspots, gay events and just plain gay goings on about town. Fort Lauderdale nightlife never quits. Gay bars of every inclination are available and popular. Almost all Gay Fort Lauderdale bars have nightly specials or nightly events. Whether you are looking for the most popular leather bars, video bars, dance bars or just a nice friendly neighborhood pub our staff can direct you in the right direction.

I have to thank you so much for making our last trip to Ft. Lauderdale so hospitable.
We were booked at a hotel just down the street, and after finding the appalling conditions
in that hotel, you graciously booked us last minute at your property.
A mistake we will never make again.
We have stayed at Cheston House before and we will on all of our future trips to Ft. Lauderdale.
The property is exceptionally manicured and the rooms are always nicely furnished.
We found the manager and young man who assists in the office were both so friendly and fantastic to
us. We could not have been happier on our mini vacation. Yall saved our trip.

Thanks again to you all at Cheston House. We will definitely be seeing you again soon.
