- Into the Mystic is conveniently located in the East Gulf Beach area, just across the street from the bay on a quiet paved road. The beautiful uncrowded beach is less than a 5 minute walk away. The State Park is a few miles away and can be easily accessed on bikes on the paved bike path. Enjoy a few restaurants with food, drinks, and music right on the island. The new Paddy's Raw Bar as well as The Black Marlin are easily walkable from the property/no need to drive. Also, Apalachicola is a short drive across the bridges and has many outstanding restaurants from oyster bars to fine dining and some in between. There are many historical buildings, neat architecture, and quirky little shops to explore. There are so many fun and relaxing things to do in the area but the best thing about SGI is just enjoying the beauty of the natural surroundings with family and friends!...moreless

About the owner: We are retired baby boomers w/ no children except our sweet black lab. Born + raised in the Buffalo area we've traveled to FL in search of sun + warmth for much of our lives. We've dragged nieces + nephews up and down the east and west coasts + have visited all the usual beach towns. About 5 years before my wife retired from teaching we stumbled upon this unusual place called Saint George Island. After doing some research + finding it was dog friendly, we decided to give it a try. We fell in love with SGI , renting led to a desire to buy + then the perfect property for us came along. Into the Mystic has fulfilled our dream of owning a modest but comfortable beach cottage to enjoy with our dog, family, and friends. The former owners of this sweet house were unusual year round + lifetime residents of the Island. It was lovingly taken care of but was in dire need of an updated beachy makeover ; now almost complete. The secluded location is what lured us to buy the property + we consider it to be 1 of the 'Mystic's' best features. We enjoy morning coffee on the screened porch as eagles and seabirds soar over the bay. Next we walk Posey on the bike path or beach for a little exercise. After breakfast we're off in the golf cart back to the beach where we often relax with a good book. Afternoons we frequently head over the bridges to historic Apalachicola to enjoy an early dinner on the deck of our favorite restaurant. While slurping oysters + sipping a frosty one we watch the shrimp boats head through the marsh + down the creek. Once back home we plan to watch the evening news but just as often we're apt to flip on Oyster radio to listen to some funky beach tunes. Early evening finds us back down at the beach w/ the night sky filled w/ stars so brilliant + close you feel you can reach out + grab them. Finally it's time to sleep while the tree frogs sing their lullaby. Next morning (God willing) we get to do it all over again. Life IS good at the beach !
