Enjoy your morning coffee or evening beverage on your private front balcony overlooking the Bay. Watch groups of pelicans glide over the tree tops or spy the resident owl and snow white herons along the waterfront. Oyster men leave early to gather the days harvest and fishermen will pass in front of the building searching for the catch of the day. Some shrimp boats leave the Bay through "Two Mile Channel" directly across from our location and sunset is the best opportunity for beautiful photos of them. Comfy chairs with cushions as well as a quaint bistro table set are provided on the balcony. The HUGE covered deck on the side of the building has two chairs and loveseat with cushions, a large slate tile coffee table and two reclining loungers. There is also a large table and chairs to enjoy meals, snacks or play card or board games when the weather allows. A grill is also supplied for your convenience. Afternoons and evenings are the perfect time to catch a breeze, a nap, or read a book. This is also a favorite spot for drinks, a cigar or grilling out with family and friends. Are you packed yet? Lots of room so everyone can stretch out and have their own space or come together to enjoy this wonderful seaside town. If interested, we can connect you with a fully licensed boat captain. Schedule an eco tour up the river to view the old railroad crossing bridge, river beaches, tupelo trees and perhaps a manatee or alligator. Go out in the Bay and ride through the "cut" to the Gulf of Mexico for a dolphin excursion. Pricing and contact information are provided in our visitors guide. If you are a first time visitor or even a returning regular, you can't run out of places to explore, activities to do, festivals to attend or special events to enjoy. Did we mention the world's best oysters? We are located within minutes of the most beautiful beaches on the "Forgotten Coast". 2 miles from Historic downtown Apalachicola. Only a 10-15 minute drive to St. George Island and just a few more miles to Eastpoint, home of Lynn's seafood, purveyors of genuine Apalachicola Oysters and other seafood (try the smoked mullet dip). Lynn's and The Owl Café were featured in the July 2016 issue of Southern Living. Take a right out of our driveway and you are a short 20 minute drive to Indian Pass Trading Post (those Oysters again), Cape San Blas, Port St. Joe, Windmark Beach and Mexico Beach. We ARE about 56 miles from Panama City Beach... in case you miss the crowds. You will have covered parking under the building and plenty of additional space to park your boat/trailer, RV or motorcycles. Please call ahead for info about boat parking!!
