Great place to take family!

  • 5 of 5

The first thing we noticed when we walked through the door was how clean the home was. We had a few teen boys with us who fished off the back deck and caught an amazing number of sting rays and sharks. The kitchen had everything we needed and everything was in great working order. It is a good distance from any stores, but that was not too big of an issue. I could have sat on the back porch all day if not for the fear of getting a fishing hook stuck in me with the boys fishing. The owners were so friendly and extremely helpful! I would definitely recommend this home for your vacation.

Great place to ring in the new year!!

  • 5 of 5

I was concerned about not being "on the beach" - but my fears were laid to rest as soon as I stepped onto the back deck!!! I love this bayside cottage. It was clean and very comfortable. The owners were very friendly and responded promptly to all of my questions and needs! The house was well stocked with amenities. We fished from the back deck and watched dolphins play. The beach was just a short walk away. This is my second trip to Alligator Point but definitely not my last. If you enjoy nature - book a trip soon! Wakulla Springs, Bald State Park, St Marks Lighthouse, Gulf Marine Aquarium are all within an hour of the house. There are great places to eat in Panacea! Bring a cooler to take home some fresh shrimp!!

Great place to stay with the family!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my wife and three teenage children. At first I was worried that they would be bored after a few days since there is not much to do here, but they had a great time. We played at the beach and fished off of the back deck. We caught a three foot hammerhead shark, redfish, whiting, catfish and some stingrays. We even fished at the beach and caught more over there. The grocery store is a short 15 minutes away and there are a few piers nearby if you want to try them out. The cottage is very clean and comfortable and the owner was very quick to respond to all of my questions. she has a notebook in the house with all the information you would need on the area, with restaurants and points of interest. My family is ready to come back next year for vacation. We would definitely recommend this area to anyone looking for a relaxing vacation where you want to get far away from the hustle of the city. The Bald Point State Park is just a few minutes away with a beach, fishing pier and trails. This area truly is the forgotten coast, when you get here it is like stepping back in time to the way Florida used to be before it became a tourist state. It may be a little too relaxed and rural for some families but for us, it was perfect.

...Just Sitting on the Dock of the Bay...

  • 5 of 5

We had an EXCELLENT TIME at the Bayside Cottage. The Cottage was exactly as advertised and was in general perfect for everything we needed. I could go on and on about how much fun we had but the short version is the cottage is in a nice area, right on the bay and a short walking distance from the public beach access and very safe for a group of women. The owners were very easy to reach and were prompt to answer our numerous email questions prior to our arrival and quick to respond when we locked ourselves out of the cottage (sorry Ms. L). Overall it was great place and we will definitely consider staying here again.

Relax and Enjoy

  • 5 of 5

Bayside Cottage was everything as described and more. The house is well maintained and very clean. Just bring your toothbrush and food. Everything else you need is waiting for you. The views of the bay from inside the house and from the deck are beautiful and so relaxing. You are within walking distance of beach access. What more could you ask for? Quiet and serene but close to restaurants and Crawfordville for those last minute shopping needs. Highly recommend Bayside Cottage.
