About the Property
New family vacation home smack dab downtown in historic Apalachicola
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 the shade of the backyard with a handy water hose accessible. In addition another double long spot is adjacent to that as well as an additional private parking spot in the front 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.
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 - again simply stroll to the Visitor's Center for assistance. 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.
We are partnered with Vacation Rentals By Owner because it makes it so easy for you to rent with us. You pay them directly and privately. We do not collect any credit information. Check in is from home. You need not stop anywhere to pick up keys. Everything is done with key pad codes

Year Purchased: 2014
About the owner: As a builder from Kentucky and life-long Apalachicola fan I wanted to build a vacation home my entire family could enjoy for years to come.
Why the Owner Chose Apalachicola, FL, USA:
This property is the perfect retreat because you can park the car and leave parked until it is time to head home. Everything is walking distance. The property is secluded yet the river is across the street. There is a sense home with an established lot, plenty of shade, plenty of privacy, plenty of quiet. Walk one direction to the festivals in the park, another to the festivals downtown, and yet another to the fireworks on the river. There is abundant shade and enough parking to keep the boat hitched to the truck while paring three more vehicles. This is a complete home on a residential lot with refreshing shade and creature comforts.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Designed with families in mind yet delightful for couples. The full size washer and dryer, two full baths, Wi-Fi, expanded cable, ironing board and iron and attention to detail are unique to downtown actual home. It is not a loft but a residence. Downtown locations are idea and this particular location beats them all because it is private and spacious as well as closest to all possible events. Events downtown, or in the park, or in the marina or by the river are all easily accessible by foot. The cars stay parked. Everything is new. New beds, baths, kitchen, fenced in patio and expanded parking.
