This is a charming cottage located within 5 minutes walk of all the shops and restaurants. Had a couple of cool nights over Thanksgiving weekend and the fireplace came in very handy. The kitchen was well stocked and the entire cottage was spotless.

My family spent 3 great nights here for Memorial Day weekend. When you drive up you see a great front porch where we spent most of our time. The house is so cute and quaint.

About the neighbourhood
Frequently referred to as Florida's Forgotten Coast , Apalachicola and its historic structures take one back to a time when cotton was king, the seaport was one of the busiest in the Union, and travel depended primarily upon waterways. Fondly called 'Apalach' by locals , this place is the stuff of which Gloria Jahoda wrote when she penned 'The Other Florida'.

A working fishing village, Apalach is situated at the point where the estuary of the Apalachicola River meets the Gulf of Mexico. In addition to authenticity, visitors are afforded countless opportunities to enjoy charter fishing excursions, superb fresh seafood, kayaking, bicycling, hiking, bird watching, horseback riding, and sunbathing on nearby St. George Island .
