This Wonderful House was the Original Home of the George Family from the turn of the Century (Circa 1900 - 2010). Straight from Greece to Ellis Island to Apalachicola, the George Family made their mark in this Amazing Fishing Community. The George's were such a devoted Greek Family that when it came time to add on to this wonderful home in the early 1900's... Mr. George actually incoorporated their homeland Greek Flag into the ceiling of what we now call the Family Room. We found this during the renovations when we moved two walls. We have painted it out in the original Greek Blue and Whites as a tribute.
Please Come and Enjoy a taste of the past as you make History and memories for the future with YOUR family and friends at the Beautiful BLUE MOON OF APALACHICOLA.

I am originally from Valdosta, Ga. and David, my husband is from Virginia.
David was on an Historic Florida three day trip when we accidently met in Apalachicola. I had driven from Atlanta and was picking up the keys to what I 'thought' would be my New Home... This Incredible House in Apalach.
After signing the Contract, my closing was not scheduled to take place for months... March of 2010. I suppose timing IS everything. I had to be patient, so as soon as everything was finalized I planned a long weekend trip to pick up Keys and begin planning my restoration.
Our meeting was NO accident! It was a Once in a Blue Moon times two encounter!
Susan & David Morgan purchased this cottage in 2010
The Contract for this new 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!
David and I are so excited to share this magical place with you. Please know as you enjoy your stay at the Blue Moon of Apalachicola 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!
Susan & David Morgan
The place is exactly as described, charming, comfortable, well appointed, and an excellent location. Other than a couple of day trips over to St. George to go to the beach, our car never moved. So many options of places to walk to, breakfast on the water, happy hour downtown, dinner at a different restaurant each night, usually at the suggestion of one of the friendly locals you'll end up talking to. We never went to the same place twice, and never had a bad meal!
Susan was amazing, available as needed for recommendations and advice, and an great resource while we were there.
Don't overthink it, this place/owner does it all!
Just back for one of the best weekends I had in a long time.
For my BF’s birthday, I rented the Blue Moon for an extended weekend visit to Apalachicola. We had another couple and my best friend come join us.
The Blue Moon was perfect- charming, well stocked, comfortable, roomy, perfect location- everything we needed for our long weekend (plus more). The pics don't begin to do it justice. We were within walking distance from everything in downtown, and close to the bridge for a few trips over to St George.
The house was beautiful and full of charm. Roomy enough that with 5 adults, we never felt crowded – actually the opposite.
Susan, the homeowner, was so friendly, informative and helpful (and not at all intrusive)- We spoke and texted prior and after our trip. She was a joy.
The Blue Moon helped make our trip one full of amazing memories- Cannot wait to go back.
This wonderful house and great location made us wish we were staying longer than the two nights we had in Apalachicola. Susan and David made us feel welcome in their lovingly restored and decorated house. The location is ideal for those (like us) who prefer to park the car and explore the surrounding area on foot. We hope to return soon, and get to know the area better. When we do, you can bet we will be staying at the Blue Moon.
Susan has created a great getaway house for anyone wanting to experience Apalachicola. Everything is within a short walk . We were there for four days and did not start our vehicle again until time to leave. Perfect spot and highly recommended. (5th timer)
Well appointed, cozy,, obviously lovingly restored home, very close to town, and with highly responsive owners. Made for a wonderful family stay with a truly homey feeling.
My wife and I spent a truly lovely month at the very comfortable Blue Moon Inn. It is large and furnished in a very appropriate, old style, seaside village motif, but with modern conveniences. Susan Morgan, the owner, is extremely nice and always available to help with whatever.
The location on the edge of wonderful downtown Apalach is perfect! You can walk to everything: restaurants and oyster bars, interesting shops, a great seafood store (13 Mile Seafood) on the riverfront, and many other interesting things, all condensed in a small venue. The kitchen is large and has ample utensils for preparing meals. There is so much to see and do in this gorgeous little town and we think the Blue Moon is probably the best place to do it from. We certainly intend to return.
The Blue Moon is only a few steps from Fishing, Boating and Kayak Charters. The Maritime Museum and The Apalachicola Marina are right at your own Front Porch. The Amazing local Restaurants, Hotspots, Shops, Galleries, Museums, Nautical, Fishing, Outdoor, Antique and Novelty Stores surround This Charming Private Home Away from Home.
Hang up your car keys when you arrive. You'll be strolling the waterfront streets with authentic working docks or you'll be bicycling avenues lined with beautiful historic homes dating back to the early 1800's. The Fresh Catch of the Day awaits you at the Dock Fish Markets. The Blue Moon has a Large Dinning Room & Full Kitchen for You to prepare for and entertain Family and Friends. Or You can Relax and let Our Many Featured Local Restaurants Wow you with their Famous Oyster, Shrimp, and Fish favorites at a waterfront table with Majestic Views. The Blue Moon Truly offers You the Most Convenient Private Vantage Point for 'The Best' Apalachicola Experience!
