About Karen Hoff
Although a native of Michigan, I spent the last 30 years in New Jersey where my husband and I have restored an 1850s Victorian and raised 2 sons who currently reside in Atlanta.. After retiring from a 30 year banking career as a Commercial Lending Officer, I came to Apalachicola for a vacation and fell in love with the quaint unpretentious aura of the town. As a history buff, the area presents opportunities to explore museums and historic homes. My favorite is the Historic Homes Tour which is sponsored by Trinity Episcopal Church during the first weekend in May. Although I have spent years enjoying the Atlantic Ocean in New Jersey, the beaches on St. George Island are ranked #3 in the country and only a 15 minute drive away. On St George Island, I have experienced the white sandy beaches of the Florida panhandle and taken a tour of the St George lighthouse with spectacular views from the top. On the island, the State Park offers an opportunity to enjoy either the Apalachicola Bay or the Gulf of Mexico and has limited crowds, plenty of parking and very clean facilities.
Karen Hoff purchased this House Boat in 2013
Why Karen Hoff chose Apalachicola
The interior living/dining area is fully surrounded by windows to allow viewing the sights from the comfort of your home. Downtown Apalachicola with its shops, art galleries and restaurants are just a short walk away so there is no need to use your car to enjoy the town's charm.
What makes this House Boat unique
Being directly on the water and moored at the end of the dock, the General Lee is in a prime location to enjoy panoramic views of both sunrises and sunsets, the full moon reflecting off the water and an unobstructed view of a wide variety of water activity.

We really enjoyed staying on the General Lee! The houseboat was clean and very well appointed. Karen met us on arrival, walked us through the houseboat and offered some great recommendations for breakfast (Chowders) and dinner (The Station). We are planning a return visit in May!
I am so glad that you had a nice visit. I hope to see you again either here or at Lake Lanier! Thank you.

Beautiful and Serene
We rented the General Lee for a sisters long weekend. Karen met us at the boat and showed us around - she was very nice and made some great recommendations for food. It was a fun experience and we look forward to renting the General Lee again!
