    Things to Do
    Additional Location Information
    Frequently referred to as Florida's Forgotten Coast , Apalachicola and its historic structures take one back to a time when cotton was king, the seaport was one of the busiest in the Union, and travel depended primarily upon waterways. Fondly called "Apalach" by locals , this place is the stuff of which Gloria Jahoda wrote when she penned "The Other Florida".

    A working fishing village, Apalach is situated at the point where the estuary of the Apalachicola River meets the Gulf of Mexico. In addition to authenticity, visitors are afforded countless opportunities to enjoy charter fishing excursions, superb fresh seafood, kayaking, bicycling, hiking, bird watching, horseback riding, and sunbathing on nearby St. George Island .

Charming, historic guest cottage in charming, historic Apalachicola. Only 15-20 minutes to the beautiful beaches of St. George Island, a bit farther to the equally gorgeous beach at St. Joseph Peninsula. There's also plenty to enjoy in Apalachicola, with great restaurants and shops. Quite possibly the best-stocked rental house I've ever visited; the only thing missing was wine! The owner... more

Our first reaction on entering the cottage was "we love it"! This is an absolutely adorable, charming guest home. Why would you stay in a hotel if you could stay here? This is the perfect place to stay if you want to be in downtown Apalachicola. It is comfortable, well equipped and an easy walk to all the restaurants and... more

We visited during the coldest weather in recent memory and were always toasty warm in the Raney. The fully equipped kitchen allowed us the option of eating in, and the close proximity to the waterfront, unique shops, seafood obtained directly from the bay, and old-town architecture afforded even the most reluctant walkers among us the opportunity to stroll slowly through... more
