Property description

The widow's walk allows 360 degree views over the Gulf, up and down the amazing beaches of St. George Island and it is the perfect spot for sun bathing. At night you can watch the stars without the distraction of city lights and often see the deck lights from local shrimp boats on the horizon.

The 2023-acre Julian G. Bruce State Park is located on the East End of the island. With the Gulf of Mexico on one side and the Apalachicola Bay on the other side it presents the perfect opportunity for futher exploration. Rentals of bicycles, motor scooters, golf carts, hobie cats, jet skis, beach chairs and umbrellas are available on the island. There are a number of restaurants and specialty shops on the island, along with a couple of grocery and convenience stores. All are within a few short blocks of High Cotton.

Location

There is much to explore and enjoy on our 28 mile long and one mile wide barrier island. Uncrowded natural beaches free from highrises, traffic and crowds offer many simple pleasures - excellent fishing, kayaking, outstanding bird watching, and awesome stargazing. The island waters are nationally recognized as a fisherman's paradise. Fresh oysters and shrimp are harvested locally and sold by numerous fresh seafood dealers. You may also enjoy these seafood delicacies at the excellent restaurants on St. George Island and nearby Apalachicola and East Point. Apalachicola has much to offer with its boutiques, art galleries, antique shops, Dixie Theatre presentations, historic museums, live marine exhibit and many excellent restaurants. Bring your own bicycles or rent them from one of the shops and enjoy the island's 6.3 mile bike path. Pack your binoculars for native and migratory bird watching. Gaze at the stars in our magnificient sky, unobstructed by the glare of city lights.

 

Manager info

About: High Cotton is owned by Drew and Kaye Smith of Valdosta, GA.

Why Gulf Beaches:
My wife, Kaye, vacationed here as a child and introduced St. George Island to me when we were dating, quite some time ago. We enjoyed it so much we bought a house here, fixed it up and bought another. Eventually we had High Cotton custom built just the way we wanted it. We enjoy the family friendly atmosphere of St. George Island and vacation here as often as possible with our children and now, our grandchildren,too.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Soaring above most homes around it, High Cotton was named for this feature. The views from the wrap around decks and the widow's walk are spectacular!
