A Jupiter Icon Is On The Market- The DuBois Family’s Honeymoon Cottage

Posted by Brittany Bosher on Wednesday, November 1st, 2017 at 1:40pm.


Perhaps the most famous name associated with Jupiter’s history is the DuBois Family. Many locals are familiar with the famous DuBois Park off of the Jupiter Inlet, where you can picnic, swim and snorkel with family and friends in a protected lagoon. The name we know so well as just a beach park is much more than just a park. The DuBois Family were some of the first and most famous pioneers of Jupiter. 

The family’s charming waterfront cottage was theirs from the early 1920’s until 2012. Now the Honeymoon Cottage is on the market for any one of us to own for a cool $1.65 million. The estate is everything you can imagine when it comes to old Florida but with contemporary updates that give this home all of the feel of laid back island life with all of the creature comforts of a modern home. 

Resting on 1.09 acres of land with over 100 feet of direct water frontage, The DuBois Family’s honeymoon cottage is steps away from the beach and boasts incredible views of Jupiter’s Lighthouse. “The DuBois family estate is dubbed for paying homage to Jupiter’s early life, and John Rue DuBois, the eldest son, carefully preserved artifacts found on the property, which were later examined by the Florida State Museum,” according to an article in Jupiter Magazine. 

This charming piece of Florida history is a unique opportunity that comes once in a lifetime when it comes to Jupiter real estate
