Each year the Key West Chamber of Commerce presents several types of awards, starting with the Business for Beauty Award, which is given each year for major capital projects or extensive renovations that add to the beauty and contribute to the overall attractiveness of Key West.
In January 2019, Peggy and Johnny were presented with this prestigious award. Here's what the Chamber of Commerce had to say about the Mango Tree Inn:
"The Mango Tree Inn and its continued upgrades also won. Peggy and Johnny Newberry accepted the award for their property. The Inn is a charming 1850s house located at 603 Southard St. (on the corner of Simonton and Southard).
"The renovations on the Inn began in 1999 and continue through today. The Mango Tree Inn is run by Peggy and Johnny Newberry. They have worked tirelessly for 20 years on their property, which is also their home. They strive to keep the property well kept, freshly painted and their garden full of tropical flowers and plants."
