About the Property

3 Bedrm,1 Full Bath Cottage in Old Grayton, Outdoor shower w/hot water, Sleeps 6

Goodnight Moon in Grayton, located at #2 Magnolia Street, is a newly renovated, vintage style cottage in historic Old Grayton Beach. It is situated off the main road in the beach community of 'Old Grayton', nestled under oak and magnolia trees (a shady retreat from the Florida sun!). The location is peaceful and secluded allowing guests to enjoy early morning coffee or late afternoon cocktails on the screened porch just 3 blocks from the white sandy beaches.
The vaulted ceilings of the spacious great room lend an open feel to the cottage. This space includes the newly renovated kitchen, dining and living areas. The dining table can easily accommodate 6-8. The original artwork hung throughout the great room continues down the hall and into the 3 bedrooms. There is a large master bedroom with a king size bed. The middle bedroom has a queen size bed and a full size washer/dryer closet. The bunk room has twin beds. All linens, including 100% linen pillow cases, bath towels and beach towels are provided. The bathroom's marble vanity has 2 sinks and a combination tub/shower. There is a fully enclosed outdoor shower with hot and cold water just outside the side porch entrance.
In a separate storage room behind the cottage you will find the beach wagon loaded with 3 chairs, a cooler, beach toys and an umbrella. An outdoor grill is also kept in the storage area. And don't overlook the picnic table for outdoor dining!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: The owners, who also manage the cottage, live close by on Western Lake and will be available to answer questions or help with arrangements during your stay.

Why the Owner Chose Grayton Beach, FL, USA:
My husband's family has had a cottage in the historic Old Grayton community since 1936. Our girls spent many summers in Grayton alongside their grandparents and cousins. After raising our family in Mobile, Al, we retired to our permanent home on Western Lake overlooking Old Grayton. The quirky village of Grayton has always been a huge part of our family life. We took great care and pride in our renovation of Goodnight Moon cottage. We consider Grayton our home and we hope you will enjoy it, as we have.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Goodnight Moon is located in historic 'Old Grayton' just 3 blocks or 3 tenths of a mile from the beach in Grayton. With queen and king bedrooms Goodnight Moon is a perfect retreat for a couples' weekend, a small family or a girls' getaway. The bunk room is well-suited for kids and adults, as well.
