About Lori

We have been going to St. George Island since 1994. It is the second home we designed and built on the island. We have traveled to beaches all over the world and find this one to be the the widest, greatest sand with absolutely no crowds. We hate staying in junky rental homes and it is my commitment to you that we have the absolute best in the house. You will never be short of anything in the kitchen and when it gets 'used' we throw and buy new. We like the east end because it has far less bugs, no vegetation on the beach and is within a mile of the state park.

Lori purchased this house in 2007

Why Lori chose East End

Beaches are the very best! We are 15 minutes from Apalachicola with unique shops and great restaurants. The island has terrific restaurants, biking and a state park that looks like it has never been touched.

What makes this house unique

Our house has it all! 7 bedrooms. Each bedroom with its own bath and each with TV for the night owls or when you just must get away. Beachside pool and a hot tub

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time with 15 people at Solitude. We didn'ave have the best weather but we made the best out of it! We evern named a new drink after the house "It was like being at the Ritz" We loved the pool ad hottb and caughter several nice sized flish. The kitchen allowed us to cook many means. We have never experience such small crowds on the bgeach. We felt like the beach was ours. We would all come back in the future. Thank you.

Solitude is by far, without a doubt, the finest, best positioned home in St George Island. My first visit was when it was first available for rent in 2006. My family has never wanted to stay anywhere else. Our perfect beach house. I am blessed to be able to afford to stay in any house on the island. Suffice it to say I've chosen Solitude every year for the last eleven, and will continue to do so!

Army Navy Football Game Weekend on the Beach 2017

  • 5 of 5

The perfect size for 7 couples over the extended Army Navy Football game weekend. We had plenty of room and did not get in each others' way over a 7 day stay. Couples were from up and down the eastern seaboard to include Pittsburgh and Indiana. The weather started out rainy but improved over the stay. We walked on the beach daily, flew kites, and grilled every night. The pool and hot tub was fantastic and warm enough even for December. Although an Apalachicola resident, it was a great get-away for us and our 40 year friends. Clean, very well decorated and would give it 6 stars if the rating was available. Lori thank you for being flexible on the last day, we had 5 different itineraries to meet so that all could leave comfortably. We will definitely do it again. Only bad thing NAVY lost the game. BEAT ARMY in 2018.

Everything we needed and more!

  • 5 of 5

We have rented numerous beach homes over the years and this one was as close to perfect as we could have asked. The kitchen was extremely well equipped and even included liquid and dishwasher soaps, and there was lots of space for 4 families (14 people) in every way. We did have to make a few calls to the local representatives about the pool not heating properly, a glitch with the elevator upon arrival, and a few other minor things, but found them most responsive! We realized we left behind a few things that were found by the cleaning people and they were kind enough to promise to return them C.O.D. today.

The walk to the beach was easy and mostly level ( about 4 steps at the end of the walkway) and the views were spectacular. Loved the 4 Ocean Front King bedrooms. Lori, the owner was very accommodating and quick to respond. Although we usually like to explore different coast lines, it would be a house we would definitely consider re-booking.

Our family had a wonderful week at this house! There are 16 of us, including the 8 grandchildren, and we could not have enjoyed it more! The house is great, the beach is really nice and private, and with the small grandchildren (6 are age five or under), the pool was a very popular place to spend much of the day!! This house is the perfect layout for privacy as well as group times. The kitchen seemed to have everything and we really enjoyed meal times because we could all eat together. A special thanks to Lori and her family for sharing such a wonderful vacation place.

Kitchen is a dream with two refrigerators and every conceivable piece of cookware. Beds are very comfortable. Easy flat walk to the beach. Pool and spa a great addition.

Perfect for a Group

  • 5 of 5

I cannot thank Lori enough for the experience we had at Solitude. Every person on the trip pulled me aside and asked when we would be back. Everything was well appointed and the Island itself along with Apalachicola is a gem. Thanks again for a beautiful place for us to celebrate in. Cheers!
