Gulf Beaches cottage description

Our little cottage is quite charming, comfortable, and neat. It is bayfront even though the cottage sits on the north side of the road. There is 350 feet on the bay with a little beach for fishing, lounging, and enjoying the sunrises and sunsets. We have a sitting area and picnic table by the water. There are great views of the bay, St. George Island, and the oyster and shrimp boats from our Eastpoint cottage. St. George Island, which is known for one of the top ten beaches in the nation, is just across the bridge. Its beautiful white sand beaches attract visitors around the world.
The island as well as the entire area is very pristine. Our beaches are very private. There are no high rises or shopping malls. Nature abounds. As a matter of fact, there are only 10,000 people living year round in our county of Franklin.
Eastpoint abounds with seafood. There are many little seafood markets lining the waterfront selling fresh Apalachicola Bay oysters, shrimp, fish, blue crab, scallops, and sometimes 'bulldozers' (Our version of the lobster native only to our area) You can watch the oystermen tong for oysters the old fashioned way - By hand. No commercial nets!
Apalachicola is just across the bridge to the west. It boasts of historical homes, great restaurants, lots of artistic shops and antiques, and a bustling waterfront. Ambiance abounds! You might want to stop off at the estuary lab while you're in Carrabelle. It's great for the whole family. Lots of info on the area and a good display of wildlife and marine life native to this area. Carrabelle is to the east and is lined with marinas, condominium's, and captains advertising freshwater, bay, and off-shore fishing trips as well as sailing and diving trips.
We have beach towels, beach chairs, coolers, games and movies for children at the cottage. We also have several boatslips on the Carrabelle River if you intend to bring your boat and need a place to keep it while visiting. However, the public boat ramp is just a block or so away. Bring your canoe or kayak. Plenty of places on your own private beach to beach it.
