Nice, quiet cabin, no crowds just a simple, sweet, place & surroundings
The South Cabin is a large one room with one Queen Bed, one Full size bed and a sitting area with nice TV, Cable and Wifi. A small kitchen off the room has sink, apartment size fridge with freezer, microwave, toaster oven, toaster, electric skillet, coffee maker and ample supply of dishes, etc. Has booth to sit. Has charcoal grill outside. One bath with shower. Large screened porch to enjoy the days...and nights. Wildlife is still here.

Seclude and quite here and just a short walk to the bay to enjoy a day on or 'in' the water. The bay is hard pack sand bottom, pristine waters and great for all water activities, fishing, exploring. Shallow for a ways out so you see so much! Kids love it. (pets and parents do too!) Great place to call home and explore the Cape. Best Rates on the Cape!

rustic yet very comfortable
We were only there Monday thru Friday. Next time we plan to stay a week. The cabin had everything we needed. It is great for a dog. Very convenient to the beach and restaurants. We enjoyed the out doors.
We enjoyed staying there, but expected a few more pans, but then if you have to cook on a single hot plate, you can only use one at once. Surprised they had a full size small refrigerator. The bed was comfortable. I was a little scared to take our dogs out at night since there are bears around. One ran in front of us as we were coming home from #Blastonthebay, from Indian Pass Raw Bar. I gave the owner a list of things I wanted him to check on and he came and did it. Don't try to take the trail! It needs to be shut down as the boards in the little bridge were rotton and falling through.
We had a great time at the cabin! Comfortable, and beautiful location. Private and quiet!
Thank you, glad you enjoyed your stay. Come back soon!
Nice small cabin
we had a great time
More Boy Scout camp than vacation rental.
Accommodations were rough and if this is "remodeled," I wonder how bad it was before. I understand and appreciate primitive but this was just cheap and poorly done. Beds were horrible and creaked so loud it woke me up every time I rolled over. Kitchenette was unusable for anything other than keeping beer cold and making coffee in the morning.
The owner charged a cleaning fee and "service" fee but we never saw a soul besides the guys remodeling cabins. We even went to the office but it was a tiny "museum." Checkout instructions said to wash dishes, straighten the cabin, and take out trash. Wouldn't mind at all if I hadn't paid exorbitant fees. I don't feel like I got my money's worth for cleaning or service.
There was a plunger and I guessed it would be a problem...and it was. Toilet flushed slowly, got worse through our stay, and finally I spent 30 minutes clearing the toilet. Plunging caused water to back up in sinks meaning the problem was outside the cabin. Anyone with basic understanding of plumbing would know that. It just wasn't fixed and left to the renter to make do.
This cabin is close to the road and you hear more road noise than crashing surf. Screened porch is unusable because of multiple large holes and open floor. Seriously, the floor was completely open making even a new screen worthless.
I did enjoy the kayaks but because they are left out in the sun the rigging is failing apart and you have to portage the kayak down a dilapidated "dock" and then 20 yards to reach a depth the kayak will float in.
The location is ideal. It's a great launching point to the peninsula, Indian Pass, St. Joe, and Apalachicola.
We were the only guests and I understand why. This could be a great property with some quality upgrades and good management. Spend $20 more a night (after fees) a get a comfortable place to stay.
Would not stay again
I chose to rent a cheaper place to rent for just a quick stop on way back home to Tn, I am not a complainer, I can deal with no stove or laundry, I knew that coming in to this, but the over powering smell of urine in bathroom was just too much to handle, and I chose the bed closest to bathroom so my 75 yr old mother had the better one, but the squeaking of it made for 4 nights of not much sleep, it really just needs to go in the dump, (yes it's that bad) other than that, the place was just ok.
I am sorry for problems you had. I sure wish you had called us immediately. We could have corrected any problems, including the bed!? This is the first we've heard that it is uncomfortable. We take great pride in the cleaning of the cabins, not sure what the problem was, but will find out why.
Quite and secluded. St. Joe Bay is wonderful! Pristine waters, shallow for quite a ways out, great for wade fishing, shelling, exploring and cooling off! Beautiful Sunrises to wake up to. Beach is just across the road, (you can hear it!) and beach access is less than a mile in either directions. Best of both worlds. The Cabin is private, quite and nestled in among the oaks, pines and palms. Screened Porch to enjoy the plentiful 'nature' that still remains here. The boardwalk to the bay is just a short walk down the private, beautiful, driveway of the Old Saltworks Cabins. Nature at its best. Kayaking and Canoe in the bay is a must! Clear water, hard pack sand bottom host lots of shells and the fishing is great. Probably would see sea turtles, sand dollars, star fish and more! We have a couple kayaks and a canoe but we have a great rental place just down the road at Happy Ours that rent just about anything and offers great 'eco' guided tours on the bay. Great folks and very knowledgeable! Here is a great cabin, to call home while you explore the Cape!
