About Anne Fairfax

I am a licensed architect, grew up in Honolulu and graduated from the University of Virginia School of Architecture. I currently live in Lake Worth, on the property. I have had a 25 year career as an architect, and when I discovered Lake Worth I knew that its small village scale, with sandy alleyways, charming cottages and intact downtown would be the perfect place for me to create a vacation retreat, for myself, and for visitors. When you come and stay, I hope you appreciate Lake Worth as much as I do. America has very few charming small towns left, and in Florida, they are rare as hen’s teeth. Lake Worth is a treasure that its citizens have preserved through designation of a series of historic districts. While still a transitional community, with pockets of poverty and attendant issues, it is fast becoming "the" destination for those who are seeking "old Florida" and a place which has a real village feeling where one can walk to the library, the grocery store, the post office, city hall, catch a movie at the independent movie house or see a live play and have a meal in a restaurant. The weather is warm and tropical year-round, so it makes an ideal getaway for anyone seeking a respite from the cold.

Anne Fairfax purchased this lodge in 2013

Why Anne Fairfax chose Lake Worth

J Street Lodge is located in Lake Worth, Florida , Palm Beach's hip little sister, chock full of charming mom & pop shops, restaurants, antique and consignment stores and minutes away from the more publicized Palm Beach. Enlightened residents have blocked mass commercial high-rise development in favor of preserving Florida's last remaining walkable human-scaled village. While Palm Beach features private mega-mansions, Lake Worth keeps a lower profile with hundreds of original 1920's cottages. Palm Beach has the black tie charity affairs, Lake Worth has a jazz club, theater, independent movie house, cafes and art openings.

You have many options when staying at J Street Lodge when it comes to enjoying the South Florida weather. The ocean, beach and fishing pier are minutes away as well as a public Olympic-size pool. Right over the bridge, play golf and dine at Palm Beach Par 3 recently redesigned by Raymond Floyd or eat at Bennie's on the Beach overlooking the surf at Lake Worth Casino (the name is a holdover from the 1920's gambling heyday).

You are a 3 minute walk away from the town's main street, Lake Avenue which features a live playhouse, an independent movie house, many restaurants, bars and clubs. Enjoy consignment and antique shopping and the weekly Saturday Lake Worth Farmer's market!

But for relaxation, you do not need to go anywhere. Your lodge is in a private compound, quiet and tucked away from any traffic noise. You will share the communal garden with the other 2 apartments. Owned and restored by award-winning architect, Anne Fairfax, she bought the house in 2013 and with great love renovated it so she can share it with others. She has a property in Palm Beach but would rather live in Lake Worth. She says, " I think of Lake Worth as what Brooklyn is to NYC. Hip, creative, a bit rough at the edges."

Come alone or bring friends. Each of three lodges are approximately the same size, with the same amenities but with different color schemes.

What makes this lodge unique

Among the unique benefits of this historic property is that it has been completely renovated, but retains the charm of its original Mediterranean Revival style. The property's walkable proximity to vibrant downtown Lake Worth makes this an ideal getaway for those who want to ditch the car and get some sunshine while enjoying all the amenities of a small town.
