History Behind the Name
Early 1800s settlers logged cypress trees down the creek behind the hotel to a mill where they were fashioned into roof shingles. Thus, the settlers named it “Shingle Creek.” In addition to providing early settlers an effective method to transport cypress logs, Shingle Creek is also one of the headwaters of the Florida Everglades. With the creek’s functionality and life-supporting supply of water, Shingle Creek quickly became a development hub in the immediate Central Florida area. To this day Rosen Shingle Creek® honors the legacy of the old Florida Frontier, still present in our backyard.
We encourage our guests to experience Shingle Creek for themselves. Venture out and immerse yourself in the enchanting flora and wildlife surrounding Rosen Shingle Creek. The nature trail, which is perfect for walking and bird watching, wraps around the backside of the property and the golf course. Even anglers enjoy seasonal fishing at Rosen Shingle Creek. Our love for nature goes beyond aesthetics. We work hard to strike harmony with the environment in all aspects of this business, which is the main reason why we are a Three Palm Green Hotel.
