“What a delight!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

What a delightful place to stay. The house itself is so authentic and charming with Steve the innkeeper there to welcome you with interesting history about the house and town. We had seven couples so I got to see many bedrooms...each with it's own special feel. Cookies upon arrival, complimentary wine and cheese at 6:00. After a good nights sleep thanks to the comfortable bed with the big down comforter, Kim made an absolutely delicious breakfast. All 14 of us just loved it!

This is the place to stay. The Inn itself was clean, well decorated and very comfortable. The breakfast was excellent and the staff were very helpful and accommodating. The Inn is close to the downtown. We happened to stay the last Saturday of October, 2012. The local cemetery is located across the street and members of the local historical society put on a reenactment of various historical characters from Apalachicola's past. We were escorted around the cemetery after dark by a local historian. We stopped at a dozen or more graves where other locals pretended they were the person buried there and described the deceased's life and contribution to the community. It was very well done. I would say that they had several hundred people, tourists and locals, take the tour. A very interesting historical community. I am not a history buff, but I did enjoy the evening. Prior to taking the cemetery tour, the owners of the Inn actually did their own reenactment of the original owners of the inn and suggested that the inn may be haunted. A great lead up to the cemetery tour plus a great history of the Coombs family. Thank you for great evening

We were driving around looking for a place to stay, and found your B&B. The room was very clean, the breakfast was delicious, and we were within walking distance of the downtown. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. I would highly recommend this B & B, to both business travelers and those on vacation.

Room Tip: Rooms in the back are quieter.

We were passing through Apalachicola and just happened upon this B&B. We were given a warm welcome, The house dates back to the middle 1800 hundreds, and is full of antiquities.It is very dated in a nice kind of way. We stayed in the Wilson room on the ground floor, very small shower room but adequate,breakfast good.Staff were helpful, Staying here made a welcome change from normal hotels or motels, we would stay again if we were passing through again.

The Coombs Inn is a wonderful place for a relaxing week-end. The place was immaculately keep, bed was comfortable, very quiet, delicious breakfast and all within walking distance of downtown and riverfront.

Room Tip: We really enjoyed being in the main house but the other buildings may be equally nice.

We wanted a quiet and comfortable weekend away from home and the Coombs Inn met our needs. We enjoyed drinking champagne while sitting in rocking chairs on the front porch. The staff at the inn was l helpful and made us feel welcomed, and the wine reception that they provided was a nice start to our evening as well. We found the inn to be in a great location because it was a short walk to the town center and several great restaurants.

Recommended by a friend. Typical b&b in decor & feel. Good choice if you are in the area. Particularly liked Lana (sp?) the innkeeper. We also enjoyed the upstairs porch. $7 for serve yourself wine seemed a bit cheap for this caliber of place.
