Great place to spend our 15 year anniversary. The place was charming and the staff friendly. We stayed in the Coombs room. The bed was very soft and comfortable. The jacuzzi tub was large enough for us both and clean. The breakfast was delicious with both a dry breakfast bar and a main course. It was the first time we ever had eggs with broccoli. The place is within walking distance to some local shops and restaurants. We will definatelly be back.

The staff was friendly and attentive to our needs. The made suggestions for resturants and even made us a reservation to the Dixie Theatre where we saw Bob Milner. His show was really good we bought several tapes. The cookies for "tea" were good. Evening wine and cheese was enjoyable. For the amount of the room charges I expected more and better selection for breadfast.

Room Tip: I think all the rooms would be nice. We were on the main floor and I was afraid it might be noisey...

We spent a midweek winter getaway here. Beautifully appointed, period, old and classy. A breath of fresh air from the usual motel stay. The chairs on the porches were a great way to meet some fellow travelers. We stayed in the Cooms room. It was very space, clean, and comfortable. The private bath had a hot tub type of tub, separate from the shower. We would surely recommend it to anyone, and we have.

Room Tip: As unoccupied rooms had open doors, we viewed a few of them, and they were beautiful. Cooms room al...

The Inn is gorgeous and has a great location. We stayed in the Biltmore which was located in The Veranda house. This is a good choice if you want more privacy and is located just a few steps from the main house. They even provide beach chairs, umbrellas and bikes at no charge. The staff was solicitous of our needs and the entire stay was lovely.

It's possible to spend time at a Florida coast without dealing with traffic and people. The Gulf coast called the "forgotten coast" lies in the panhandle east of Panama City and southwest of Tallahassee where the coast bulges out into the Gulf of Mexico, It's center is Apalachicola' a small historical village.of a few thousand people. But it has an excellent historic (modernized) inn (Coombs House) comprised of several Victorian mansions with period furnishings. A bountiful breakfast is part of its B & B style. The small staff is personable and knowledgeable about the area. They can direct you to the several good restaurants in the center of town. A terrific place to enjoy Florida in the winter without all the people and traffic. Nearby beaches are excellent and we understood that it summers are not as hot as southern Florida.

Room Tip: Second floor rooms in the main house are larger than first floor and traffic noise on the north side...

If you get the chance be sure to take Highway 98 to Apalachicola, Florida and keep on traveling on Highway 98 until it turns into Highway 98 all the way to Mobile, Alabama!.
Coombs stunning outside and inside converted home into B & B. I loved the bedroom, I loved the shower plenty of hot water, I loved the very comfortable bed and I loved the muffins and the incredible coffee. Over all very satisfied!

Room Tip: Make a reservation!

We headed to Apalachicola from South Florida for our 20th wedding anniversary. Discovered this place through a Groupon and we were so pleased with our stay. Our room was in a cottage next to the mansion, nicely appointed with a sitting room, kitchen, modern bath (with jacuzzi tub!) and gorgeous king bed. The weather was cloudy, cool, and foggy for our entire stay, but having this place as our retreat made the trip! The innkeeper was even kind enough to drive us to and from the airport, which was absolutely above and beyond the call of duty. (We flew in to the tiny airport in town, and due to weather decided to stay an extra day.) The entire staff is very friendly and laid-back, and the weekend "wine hour" is a great way to meet and socialize with the other guests. Thank you Coombs House Inn for making our anniversary special. If we ever find our way back to the area, we will undoubtedly stay here again.

Room Tip: We understand the hotel is also dog-friendly...in fact, the entire town is very dog-friendly. A gre...
