From the moment you step on to the Front Porch and glance down to the waterfront docks, you can feel the connection with Apalachicola (The local Native word meaning 'Friendly People'). The Home has 12 foot Ceilings built with timbers from the famous Bay Cypress Mills in the 1800's.

This Wonderful House was the Original Home of the George Family from the turn of the Century (Circa 1900 - 2010). Straight from Greece to Ellis Island to Apalachicola, the George Family made their mark in this Amazing Fishing Community. The George's were such a devoted Greek Family that when it came time to add on to this wonderful home in the early 1900's... Mr. George actually incoorporated their homeland Greek Flag into the ceiling of what we now call the Family Room. We found this during the renovations when we moved two walls. We have painted it out in the original Greek Blue and Whites as a tribute.

Please Come and Enjoy a taste of the past at as you make History and memories for the future with YOUR family and friends at the Beautiful BLUE MOON INN OF APALACHICOLA.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2010

                      About the owner: I am originally from Valdosta, Ga. and David, my husband is from Virginia. David was on an Historic Florida three day trip when we accidently met in Apalachicola. I had driven from Atlanta and was picking up the keys to what I 'thought' would be my New Home... This Incredible House in Apalach. After signing the Contract, my closing was not scheduled to take place for months... March of 2010. I suppose timing IS everything. I had to be patient, so as soon as everything was finalized I planned a long weekend trip to pick up Keys and begin planning my restoration. Our meeting was NO accident! It was a Once in a Blue Moon times two encounter!

                      Why the Owner Chose Apalachicola:
                      The Contract for this new 'old' home was finalized and signed between the George Estate and myself on the night of a 'Blue Moon' in December of 2009. You see, my son, Alex had recently graduated from Law School at UGA and I had been living in Atlanta for almost nine years. I decided to leave the fast pace life of Buckhead, and was naturally drawn back to return to the vacation lands of my childhood. My parents had been bringing their six children to the beaches of St. George Island and the Five and Dime Store of Apalach since 1968. As I crested the Bridge of Apalach at sunset, I could see the leaky rooftop of this home full of history, but a home which had laid empty for many years. You see, the George Family gave birth to nine first generation children here after a young couple made their way from Greece to Ellis Island to Apalachicola Circa 1895 to 1900. Now in 2010 as the new owner, I decided to stop by the Gibson to join the locals for the traditional Friday gathering. How was I to know a 'tourist' would be there to sweep this Newest Apalach Homeowner off her feet? Our lives changed and WE are now living on the Elizabeth River in the Tide Water area of Virginia!

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      David and I are so excited to share this magical place with you. Please know as you enjoy your stay at the Blue Moon Inn of Apalachicola that our hearts are there as well. We want you to share YOUR Stories and Memories, too. We will work with you as best we can to make your stay a Special Memory of a Lifetime. Remember, Once 'in' the Blue Moon, You'll want to come back Sooner! Susan & David Morgan
