The Fellowship House Inc. is a popular resort in Palm Beach County Florida. This resort was created by Jack and Beverly Fisher who purchased the former site of the Dolphin Club. Their vision was to turn the Dolphin Club into a luxury resort with the use of their extensive knowledge of the Palm Beach real estate. After purchasing the Dolphin Club they invested millions of dollars in renovations and added thousands of square feet of retail space five thousand square feet of office space and four restaurants to accommodate the needs of their customers. Because of the massive investment in the property they are a very popular resort for those wanting to enjoy a quality stay during Palm Beach County vacations.
