About the property

Downtown 1 Bedroom / 1 Bath With Garden-Tub & Ole Florida Apalach Style & Charm

Built above the original Blue Moon Carriage House from about 1900, this Loft style cottage unit is full of detail designed to make your stay the perfect Downtown Apalachicola Get-a-way!

Welcome!!!

From the moment you ascend the stairs and open the 100+ year old front door, you know this will be the first of a tradition of your visits to the Moon! This is a one bedroom / one bath Loft with a large kitchenette & eating area looking out to your own personal Bridge balcony. The Loft was built using some of our sentimental family pieces like the wonderful antique farm sink and 100+ year old cub-bards from my Grandparents' Home in South Georgia. Reclaimed cypress beams accent the sliding barn door which is also a refinished piece which is about 150 years old as well. The shabby chic mantel is also from a home in the original neighborhood of the legendary 'Doc Holliday' who was from Lowndes County (just over the Georgia/Florida line).

While history is all around, the modern-day oversized Garden Tub bath awaits you to ease away the time and relax. Then 'above it all' are the huge skylights constructed through the tin ceiling. From the ultra plush pillowtop bed, You can lie back and count the stars or watch the clouds roll by after an afternoon restful retreat.

So, whether you are returning from an eco tour up the river, a day at the beach, fishing or kaying on the bay, a stroll or golf cart ride through the oak lined historic district, shopping around the corner, or dining at the one of the amazing waterfront cafes just steps from your door, The Blue Moon Carriage House Loft is your perfect home away from home for your best Apalachicola experience!

About Susan & David Morgan

I am originally from Valdosta, Georgia and my Husband David is from Norfolk, Virginia. Our lives have taken us all over, but most of our careers have been in Atlanta, Ga and Richmond, VA. We now live in the Tidewater Area of Virginia on the Elizabeth River.

Susan & David Morgan purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Susan & David Morgan chose Florida Main North West

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!

What makes this cottage unique

David and I are so excited to share this magical place with you. Please know as you enjoy your stay at the Blue Moon Loft 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! We know you will love this wonderful Carriage House Loft!

Warmest regards,

Susan & David Morgan

Charming little carriage house!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed celebrating our wedding anniversary in this charming carriage house. We walked all over Apalachicola hand in hand and enjoyed wonderful oysters and great seafood. Loved every minute of it!

Great location, wonderful decor, clean, and super nice owner.

  • 5 of 5

What a great little place! Susan, the owner is so friendly, helpful and easy to reach. The décor is wonderful, very tasteful, not tacky beach décor as many houses have. We loved the sky light over the bed. We watched a big storm one night, a full moon another and birds every morning while lying in bed. The location is perfect, we parked the car and walked every where. This place is dog friendly as well as many places in town. Our dog Cooper had a really fun time. Make sure you head to the docks in the park and look for the manatees. We saw eight! We are missing the town already, the oysters and the friendly locals, and can't wait to come back.

It was just perfect in every way. Would come back, without question.

  • 5 of 5

We had scheduled 3 days prior to our stay and contacted Susan the day before our arrival and she let us know that the property was empty if we should get there sooner that we expected, just text, we did, and Susan made the adjustments and we slid right in at 9:30 pm. EVERYTHING is within walking distance. Food, shopping, sightseeing. Clean and comfortable. Any property by this couple would be an excellent experience. Thanks
