Mango Inn Bed and Breakfast

The Mango Inn Bed and Breakfast has been in operation for the past 30 years as a lodging establishment in Lake Worth, Florida. The bed and breakfast is open year-round to visitors looking to stay in the area. Chetan, the current owner, describes his property as having an “older Florida feel.” The premises has a total of four buildings with ten rooms total for guest reservation. Each unit includes amenities such as TVs, private bathrooms, robes, and Wi-Fi. On the land, there is a pool available for patrons, as well as features such as a veranda, gardens, and water fountains. Attractions near the bed and breakfast include the beach—which is about a 10 to 12-minute walk from the premises—Nortan Museum, Flagler Museum, and the Palm Beach Zoo & Conservation Society. The beach is connected to the Atlantic Ocean and the relatively prominent Lake Worth Lagoon that forms part of the city's east boundary. 


The Mango Inn Bed and Breakfast is located in the town of Lake Worth, Florida. The inn is located relatively close to downtown in a residential area close to the beach. Chetan, the owner of the property, describes the edifice to be styled after an “older Florida feel.” He describes it as a" home away from home," which is emphasized through the decorations in each of the buildings. One past visitor to the property has remarked that "Chetan is a great host. Everything was really smooth during our stay. I love the little extra touches he adds to make us truly feel at home." The property has a total of ten rooms available for reservation within the main house and an additional three buildings. Between each of the buildings on the premises, it is relatively spacious. Amenities included in each room include TVs, private bathrooms, robes, irons, and Wi-Fi. According to Chetan, out of all the units, The Cottage—which has double French doors leading to the pool—tends to be the most popular among patrons. Other notable rooms include the Bougainvillea Room, the largest upstairs room in the main house, and The Resident at Mango Inn, which is a private cottage. There are multiple common areas for guests to visit throughout the property, such as living rooms, an outdoor veranda, a smoking area, and a pool. Each suite has a living room and the main house as well. The suites have entrances outside of the building, and all the other units are accessed from inside the building.

“Lush greenery” is how Chetan describes the outside of the property. Specific foliage includes hibiscus, mango trees, palm trees, and bougainvilleas. The mangos grown on the land are used in breakfast when they are in season. Features on the property include a pool, a couple of garden areas, and water fountains. Two blocks away is a local golf course that has been frequented by many guests of the inn. Additionally, the beach is about a 10-12 minute walk from the property. Regarding activities that can be undertaken on the grounds of the bed and breakfast itself, the most common pastime is swimming in the pool.

Every day the inn serves breakfast with a hot dish—which is typically a quiche with cheese—Italian frittatas, hashbrown casserole, and mango French toast. Baked goods such as blueberry muffins, banana bread, and croissants are also served on the side. Additionally, they also try to provide fruit such as kiwis, mango, strawberries, etc. Patrons that have dietary restrictions are able to let the staff know in advance to receive accommodations for their needs. Guests with restrictions should note that items served for breakfast are already vegetarian. Breakfast is served to guests between 8:00 to 9:30 AM every day and is made by Chetan.


The Mango Inn Bed and Breakfast hosts occasional food tours that include the property as one of their stops. Additionally, according to Chetan, the owner of the inn, the surrounding area has a relatively large LBGTQ community. As such, his goal is to cater to this demographic and others. The property is able to host small groups and activities with a maximum of 30 people.

When visitors come to stay at the bed and breakfast they are expected to follow the policies set out by the establishment. Such policies at the inn include them locking up when they come in and out, the exclusion of pets, and the fact that smoking is not permitted inside the buildings and outside. Chetan says that all of the amenities and features of the property are open from "sun up to sun down" and that once the sun is down, they expect patrons to be quiet and respect the other guests staying in the buildings.

Chetan reports that his biggest goal for his business is to have his guests "feel satisfied." Guest satisfaction is also one of his favorite parts of owning the inn, which he gets to do throughout the year since the establishment is open year-round. Some of his strategies for enabling these feelings in his guests include answering their questions, asking if they are in need of anything, and providing them with necessary information before they arrive at the bed and breakfasts. Chetan says that interactions between him and guests happen in the morning during breakfast and that the rest of the day, they are "up to their own activities." One specific visitor to the property remarked, “I had a wonderful experience, Chetan, the owner, was welcoming, and all his guests were so friendly. The rooms were spotless and comfortable. The breakfast was very good and served outside on the veranda.”

Attractions in the area include the Nortan Museum, Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse & Museum, Flagler Museum, Palm Beach Zoo & Conservation, and the beach. Chetan reports that the most popular place among his visitors is the beach which is within walking distance of his property. A relatively popular water activity in the area includes going kayaking on Lake Worth Lagoon. Also close to the property are local golf courses such as Emerald Dunes, Lake Worth Beach Golf Club, and Plam Beach Golf Club. Some of the golf resorts are two blocks away from the premises, and that proximity has made them frequent attractions for guests to the Mango Inn Bed and Breakfast. When asked about restaurant recommendations, Chetan frequently mentions Nature’s Way Cafe, Rustico Italiano Ristorante—which is a small Italian restaurant—and La P Pitaya Mexican Restaurant.

Overall, the staff at the establishment describes the surrounding area as a "dynamic, multi-cultural city with a strong social and environmental consciousness." On the inn's website, they note that people come to the area for the culture and historic structures. There are over 1,000 historic buildings in the downtown area. In addition to all of the attractions and activities in the area, there are also multiple places to shop such as Clematis Street and the West Palm Beach Antique Row. The town is also known to have events such as the Garlic Fest and a Street Painting Festival. 


The Mango Inn Bed and Breakfast has been owned by Chetan for the past seven and a half years, and he continues to be the current owner of the establishment. Chetan moved from California to purchase the inn; he says he was looking for a "change of scenery" which prompted the relatively large move. About 30 years ago, the premises was converted into a bed and breakfast.

All four of the buildings were built circa 1915, and according to Chetan, they are considered to be historical buildings. Originally all the buildings were built and owned by the same family but throughout the years their ownership was divided among various parties. Chetan reports that the only changes he has made to the property are relatively basic matters of upkeep. His overall goal with his updates is to create a comfortable environment for his guests. Future plans for the property include more renovations that are expected to take place in the summer of 2022 and be ready by 2023. Overall, Chetan reports that his favorite part of his job is seeing patron’s satisfaction with the building and their stay as a whole.
