Had a wonderful time. Love the town and the folks and loved the location of the property!

  • 4 of 5

The only downfall is there is no bathroom downstairs. There is a master bedroom and bath downstairs but it is locked and reserved for the owners. The two bedrooms and bathrooms upstairs are lovely, but if you need to use the restroom frequently you will get a lot of exercise going up and down stairs. Other than that, we loved the home and the town and hope to go back annually.

Loved the Windemere Guesthouse

  • 5 of 5

This place had everything we needed when we arrived. Bedrooms (2) each had their own bathrooms & walkout to the above porch. Loved the house & the town being dog friendly. We walked our dog to town just about everyday & the town was only two blocks away. I would definitely rent this place next year. The owner was great.

Wonderful vacation in Apalachicola!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I absolutely loved our month-long stay at the Peterson's home in Apalachicola. The house is gorgeous - spacious and beautifully furnished. We had the whole house, with wrap-around porches on both floors, plus a patio and grill and smoker in the front yard. Everything in the house is new and in wonderful shape - the property definitely exceeded our expectations. And we loved the town of Apalachicola - it's a real community, everyone is incredibly friendly, and there's lots to do, including learning about about the history of the area, nature walks, driving across the two bridges to the beaches on St. George Island, and eating tons of fresh seafood. I'm ready to move to Apalachicola - or at least go back and stay again at Cathie and Rob's lovely home :)

The house was great, very comfortable, clean and quiet. We had a wonderful time sampling the oysters in different restaurants and taking in all the history of the area. We highly recommend this property as a great place to take a vacation.

Relax and Vacation in Southern Comfort

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful and comfortable home. Everything you might need has been thought about and provided from a well equipped kitchen, internet and cable TV, lovely furnishings -- and all in perfect working order. Apalachicola is fun small town with art galleries, gift shops, antique shops, a micro brewery and many wonderful seafood restaurants. We spent a week exploring the town, exploring the beach (on St. George Island) and canoeing some of the many rivers, creeks and bays nearby. It was a special treat each day to spend our mornings and evenings on one of the large porches. We are definitely returning.

About Catherine Peterson

My husband & I live in Atlantic Beach Fl where he is Construction Director of Beaches Habitat for Humanity. We get back to Apalach as often is possible where we can rest, relax & rejuvenate, eat oysters & enjoy many friends!

Why Catherine Peterson chose Apalachicola

Within walking distance of downtown (2 blocks) but insulated in a quiet residential neighborhood. Close to local nightlife, dining, theatre, art galleries, shopping, boat launch.

What makes this house unique

I love the wraparound porches, the vaulted bedroom ceilings, the openess of the house and the beautiful sunshine pouring in the front windows along with the downtown churchbells. During special music festivals & parades we can listen & watch from our front porch.
