A cozy cedar cottage located in a small, quiet, peaceful neighborhood on Garcon Point. The cottage has one bedroom with a king size bed, one full bath and a half bath (located on the front porch), a large open kitchen, dining and living area. The glassed-in front porch serves as additional living area as well as a sleeping area with a double bed. A sofa sleeper in the main living area offers a bed for two additional quests. Appliances include washer and dryer and new microwave, stove and dishwasher. A deck and a large patio are located at the back of the cottage for entertaining and relaxing. The glassed-in porch is an ideal place to relax and enjoy the views of Escambia Bay and beautiful sunsets. There are hiking and biking trails in the Garcon Point Water Management Area (3200 acres), miles of natural shoreline along the point, and three public boat ramps nearby. Beaches and parks on Santa Rosa Sound and the Gulf of Mexico are easily accessed. Fishing access is available on Garcon Point and at nearby public piers and beaches.
We have used this property, our 'House by the Sea', as a second home since 2001 until retirement from LSU. Then we moved to Florida in 2013 to be near family and enjoy coastal Florida. We enjoy fishing in coastal waters and gardening on the shore of a small bayou.

Why Garcon Point. It's a rural setting but close enough to Milton, Pensacola, Pensacola Beach, and Gulf Breeze to take advantage of the entertainment, shopping, dining, and other outdoor activities. Get away from it all on two acres or entertain friends outdoors.
It's a wonderful place to gather with friends and family. Lots of attractions are nearby including beaches and parks, the Naval Air Museum and historic Pensacola. Day trips to Ft. Walton Beach, Destin, Seaside and beyond for shopping, dining, and recreation are great ways to explore the panhandle and enjoy its delightful summers and mild winters. We now live in Florida where we continue to enjoy all that the Florida Panhandle has to offer.
Only 15 miles away, Seville Square, in Pensacola, is the venue for numerous festivals: food, music, arts, and more. Explore the area's of restaurants, museums and shops all within walking distance of the square.
We enjoyed our stay at this wonderful cottage. Great sunsets and much to do within an hour driving distance. We hiked the Garçon trail and got to see the rare white topped pitcher plant. Would recommend this as a home base or a quiet get away!
Wonderful relaxing vacation spot to get away from the northern cold. We take our 4 legged fury kids with us every where and they gave it 2 paws up.
Leisurely and cozy accommodations Had everything we needed. Helpful owners and easy to contact.
What a nice place. Very quiet and peaceful neighborhood. We had a great time doing things in the Pensacola area from here. The cottage was clean.
It would have been nice to know - that the toll on the bridge to Gulf Breeze was $3.75 and the one to Pensacola Beach was $1.
The pictures do not convey how welcoming and comfortable this cottage actually is. We enjoyed the quietness of the neighborhood and the beauty of the bay. The weather was perfect. It was warm enough to go swimming during the day but cool enough to enjoy drinking a cup of coffee and watching the sunrise.
There is only one thing that we didn't like about this cottage and that was leaving it. ( I am already looking at when we can do it again.)
