As a builder from Kentucky and life-long Apalachicola fan I looked long and hard at finding the right location for the perfect family vacation spot. I wish to extend my personal invitation to you and your family to share my new vacation home.
Downtown Apalachicola has so much to offer and being able to provide the creature comforts to hard working families like mine was foremost in planning and building this get-away.
My family enjoys a little pampering with their time off that is what we wish to share with you. There is plenty of parking on the property. There is room for the boat to be hitched to the truck while parked in front of the house with a handy water hose accessible with additional private parking spot in the back of the cottage.
Inside we designed everything with family in mind. New comfortable beds in every bedroom and a twin size sleeper sofa. A full size washer and dryer, an ironing board and iron, a completely stocked kitchen and a relaxing great room are part of the package.
Beyond that are two full bath rooms three private bedrooms. The kitchen & great room were designed to allow an open cooking area with room to do so. The tiled floors are for active, easy care, vacationing. Ground Floor home with wide hallways and door ways are wheelchair friendly.
Everyone deserves a little pampering while taking a break for relaxation. That is why we decided to take everything up a notch. The new bedding is matched with quality linens and we carry that over to the bathrooms. The shower heads are spa type.
This location, across the street from the scenic river and restaurants, is as much about outdoors as inside. There is a relaxing patio and back yard as well as a covered back porch which is perfect for watching the occasional storms pass through.
Bring the boat, kayak, bikes, books and games. There is Wi-Fi and cable for after dinner because there is so much to do during the day. Just about anything you can do in, on, above, below or under the water is offered somewhere nearby. Grab a guide at the Visitors Center a quick stroll away.
Apalachicola is one of the most historic towns in the country. Its history is rich, eventful and inspiring. You will want to read up about it on line or in the nearby bookstore. Today it is haven for bird watching, all sorts of fishing, photography, environmental site and studies and artists. Not to mention the seasonal variations - such as the massive butterfly, marine and bird migrations.
You can easily rent a golf cart and spend all day simply touring the beautiful homes in the historic district, of which you will be a part of. Spanish moss laden giant oaks, hundreds of varieties of palms, delightful gardens are truly inspiring and relaxing.
We picked this downtown location because we wanted to be where could park the car and leave it parked. Apalachicola daytime offers countless boutiques , art galleries, coffee shops and restaurants. It is a safe haven where you need not worry about the family strolling the town. The pace is different and infectious.
Fishing and festivals round out the calendar in Apalachicola. Fishing is easy to hook up - Just call Robison Brothers Guide Service. The festivals, parades and fireworks are a block away in almost any direction from this property with the added advantage being your parking spots are secured.
Head out your front door to the left and you will be on the grounds for the annual Seafood Festival. Head out your front door to the right and you will be in the middle of arts festivals. Head out the back door to the river for street parades, boat parades and fireworks.
Kathy Robinson is the property manager, located just a couple blocks away. We look forward to being your host for your next stay in Apalachicola and for years to come.
