About Roy Morton

My family and I were looking for a second home to purchase to be together outside of the busyness of life. We have owned property here for last 25 years.

We then bought this property, which sits on Apalachicola Bay, next to Lafayette Park, in 2012 and have completely renovated the exterior and interior (see pictures).

If you have additional questions you do not find in the description, please do not hesitate to ask me.

I hope you enjoy this special place as much as we do!

Roy Morton purchased this house in 2012

This house is a "don't miss

  • 5 of 5

This house was a great experience as it is roomy and on the Bay! The view is awesome

Even tho you can't get to the waters edge. The small pool was a Great addition after a long day of fishing and the kitchen spacious to entertain! There wasn't one thing we didn't like! Plenty of beds and bathrooms and a beautiful location in town. Four bicycles were available to ride and they were used ! We certainly would go here again. A great family weekend with a great location- what more could u ask for? We had a full moon and the view on the bay was unbelieveable!

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful, comfortable home with a fabulous view of Apalachicola Bay. The location, next to a well used and well maintained city park with a long fishing pier, is great. You can walk to town, the Piggly Wiggly, or just around the historic district. Apalachicola is off the beaten path, but well worth the drive. We particularly enjoyed the eco-tour from the maritime museum. Every restaurant we ate at was very good, but fixing our own meals with fresh seafood from 13 Mile was our favorite. We enjoyed our stay so well, we have rented the Cottage on the Bay again for next year.

Christmas Week in Apalachicola

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable home with all the amenities and a gorgeous view of the bay, exactly as shown in the photos. The owner is a pleasure to deal with and went out of his way to ensure that our stay was perfect. The house is in a quiet residential neighborhood adjacent to Lafayette Park and a long fishing pier. The shops and restaurants of Apalachicola are a short drive away, and it is possible to take boat trips up the river or out into the bay from the Marina or from the Maritime Museum.

Loved staying here!

  • 5 of 5

Great location! Great deck and screened in porch looking over looking the bay. Comfortable bedding and sofa! Great restaurants in the area- can even take your fish you caught to be cooked. Very peaceful, We saw a bald eagle while sitting out on deck.
