Early pioneers of the Jupiter Inlet area relied on the bounty of The Atlantic Ocean and the Loxahatchee River for their sustenance. In the early 20th century, The River provided access to other parts of the country, via steam boats and rail cars. For many years, when the Inlet District dredged the Inlet, sand was pumped into a marsh, creating a widening at the southern tip of Jupiter Island. Wealthy Hobe Sound resident John Hay Whitney planned to build a home on this beautiful spot, which fronted on both the ocean and the River. Charlie Martyn, a wealthy Massachusetts resident, bought 86 acres of land from Whitney and began to develop modern day Jupiter Inlet Colony, which was incorporated as a municipality in 1953. Today there are over 240 homes with many notable citizens.
While Jupiter Inlet Colony is strictly a residential development, there are numerous exciting activities very close by for your enjoyment. Visit Dubois Park and Jupiter Lighthouse, or head north a bit and see Blowing Rocks Preserve. Jonathan Dickinson State Park is nearby as well, with nature and hiking trails, horseback riding, canoeing and kayaking. Also nearby are art galleries, venues for water sports and boating, children’s activities, great shopping and dining as well.
The Colony itself provides for privacy and security with their own private police department. Jupiter Inlet Colony, a luxury waterfront community, is notable for its location and quiet atmosphere. Waterfront homes have beautiful views of the Jupiter Lighthouse, the inlet, or the ocean. Almost every home in the Colony has beach access. Homes range from cozy 1600 sq. ft. old Florida style homes to gorgeous waterfront estates. Practically surrounded completely by water, Jupiter Inlet Colony boasts tranquility and an upscale lifestyle.
