Overview

About the property

Downtown 1 Bedroom / 1 Bath With Garden-Tub & Ole Florida Apalach Style & Charm

Built above the original Blue Moon Carriage House from about 1900, this Loft style cottage unit is full of detail designed to make your stay the perfect Downtown Apalachicola Get-a-way!

Welcome!!!

From the moment you ascend the stairs and open the 100+ year old front door, you know this will be the first of a tradition of your visits to the Moon! This is a one bedroom / one bath Loft with a large kitchenette & eating area looking out to your own personal Bridge balcony. The Loft was built using some of our sentimental family pieces like the wonderful antique farm sink and 100+ year old cub-bards from my Grandparents' Home in South Georgia. Reclaimed cypress beams accent the sliding barn door which is also a refinished piece which is about 150 years old as well. The shabby chic mantel is also from a home in the original neighborhood of the legendary 'Doc Holliday' who was from Lowndes County (just over the Georgia/Florida line).

While history is all around, the modern-day oversized Garden Tub bath awaits you to ease away the time and relax. Then 'above it all' are the huge skylights constructed through the tin ceiling. From the ultra plush pillowtop bed, You can lie back and count the stars or watch the clouds roll by after an afternoon restful retreat.

So, whether you are returning from an eco tour up the river, a day at the beach, fishing or kaying on the bay, a stroll or golf cart ride through the oak lined historic district, shopping around the corner, or dining at the one of the amazing waterfront cafes just steps from your door, The Blue Moon Carriage House Loft is your perfect home away from home for your best Apalachicola experience!

About Susan & David Morgan

I am originally from Valdosta, Georgia and my Husband David is from Norfolk, Virginia. Our lives have taken us all over, but most of our careers have been in Atlanta, Ga and Richmond, VA. We now live in the Tidewater Area of Virginia on the Elizabeth River.

Susan & David Morgan purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Susan & David Morgan chose Apalachicola

The Contract for this new 'old' 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!

What makes this cottage unique

David and I are so excited to share this magical place with you. Please know as you enjoy your stay at the Blue Moon Loft 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! We know you will love this wonderful Carriage House Loft!

Warmest regards,

Susan & David Morgan

Perfect for 2! Love the rustic decor. Comfy bedding, bath.

Used our car only twice. The dog park & the Farmers Market. Even Piggly Wiggly was less than a half mile walk which we sorely needed because od the great food. Gibsons and the Owl are the best for food. Get food in if you are breakfast people. Not many options for that meal

Perfect hideaway in Apalachicola

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed this neat carriage house for the oyster cook off weekend. Even though it was cold we were able to sit on the front deck and enjoy the sunshine and watch people coming and going. Great location to walk to all the bars and restaurants. There’s no stove but there is a hot plate to cook with if needed. Lots of cool historical touches throughout the carriage house. Owners are very nice and eager to help you have a great experience.

Perfect Couple's Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at the loft! Perfect spot to walk to all of the great places in Apalachicola, and a short ride over to the island for beach time. The Loft is extremely well done - the design and decor is so charming and you can tell how much thought and heart went into this place! Has everything you need. We could not get the TV/Wifi to work after trying a few times, however we didn't even need it. The front porch is a great touch as well, spacious to sit and relax outside. Parking is on street but was extremely easy, don't let that scare you or deter you, Apalachicola is quiet and peaceful and we never had an issue pulling right up. We loved how close the house was to everything we needed. Will definitely try to stay here again if we come back to Apalach/SGI!
