Wonderful Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for a week long fishing trip. This was our first trip to The Forgotten Coast and the term that keeps coming to mind is “lovely”. The cottage was very comfortable and roomy. It consists of a living room, dining room, galley style kitchen, 1 full bathroom with stand up shower, a second bathroom with a tub/shower combo and 2 very nice sized bedrooms, a very nice sized front room that was what may have been a front porch that was converted to living space (would be great sleeping quarters for children) PLUS the cottage has a great covered front porch that is wheel chair accessible. The beds were very comfortable, obviously the owners went to the expense of purchasing good quality mattresses. They are bamboo memory foam and slept as well as our adjustable base sleep number beds that we have at home. The kitchen had all the pots and pans and dishes that were needed for us to cook our meals (we are seafood enthusiasts and we loved hitting all the seafood markets between Carrabelle, Eastpoint and Apalachicola and bringing home a spread and cooking it up). The only item missing from the kitchen was a wine bottle opener but that was easily remedied with husband making a quick trip to the convenience store. The cottage is located just off the center of town and you can pretty much walk to anywhere you want to go in Carrabelle. We could listen to the live music at Fathoms while sitting on the front porch. This home is absolutely lovely and very comfortable and if we find ourselves back in the area, we will gladly stay here again.

Clean and very comfortable.

  • 4 of 5

I spent a week of vacation for some much needed R&R. This house had all I could ask for in a rental, was close to everything, in a very nice neighborhood. I took hiking day trips, went to the beach, and explored the areas history. Everything was within a short drive and very easy to get to. The house was warm and inviting and had all of the comforts of home.

Great in town location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here over the New Years holiday and found this to be a very friendly town. You can walk to most everything you need. Loved getting breakfast at the local gas station, after two days they treated us as locals, and the food was great . Cool coffee shop just half a block away . The IGA is as good as most big city Grocery stores and there are a few nice bars and resturants at hand,

The house was very nicely decorated and set up to be super comfortable, with everything needed for cooking and cleaning . WIFI was fast and they had a great cable TV. Everything was in great shape and clean and fresh, in like new condition.

It was just two of us staying but even with 6 people you would not feel crowded,there is lots of space.

We highly recomend this house
