“Great stay--Apalachicola is a completely different Florida for me!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2009

My husband and I stayed in the loft Halloween weekend, and had a great stay. The guest house is very well restored, very clean, and in a perfect location for walking around Apalachicola (which was very very quiet in October). We didn't use the communal kitchen much, but if we had spent less time on the beach on St George Island, and more time planning and shopping for groceries at the Pig, we would have, because like the rest of the house it was welcoming, clean, comfortable, and well decorated.
We are used to other panhandle destinations like Destin and Panama City Beach, so Apalachicola and St. George Island were a welcome change, especially this time of year, when the weather could have been too cool for simply lying on the beach (come on, we're Southerners--70 degrees is a little cool for us...). I was prepared to do a little shopping in Apalachicola and visit the museum. But, alas, the weather was fantastic, and we ended up on the beach most of the time. The one time it rained, we ended up at Eddy Teach's raw bar on SGI and waited for it to pass.

This was our third stay at The House of Tartts in Apalachicola and we were once again reminded why we love it.

We first wanted to visit Apalachicola just because it's a fun word to say and we really wanted to see a different side of Florida. We immediately fell in love with the town and I truly believe it was because of where we were staying.

The house is a "self-catering" bed and breakfast. There is no innkeeper on site, but they are just a phonecall away if you need anything. The common areas of the kitchen and dining room are shared by the guests in the three rooms. Even with other guests at the house we truly felt like it was our home. We used the kitchen for breakfasts and some dinners, it is fully stocked with pots, pans, dinnerware, etc. The house is a short walk to the grocery store, the Piggly Wiggly ( this is the real south...gotta love it). One of our favorite things about the town is that you can walk everywhere, shopping, restaurants, bars, fishing...it's all right there. Bring a traveller and go explore!!

We have always stayed in the Queen Suite, plenty of room for three as there is a separate room with a day bed. The room is decorated with some of the coolest most eclectic antiques, the artwork over the fireplace is a piece of magic and confusion!!! We have seen the other rooms and the carriage house and they are equally beautiful and entertaining. The entire house is decorated in a manner that begs you to explore, there are also photo albums showing the original home and renovation process.

Go to Apalachicola, you will not regret it. The drive there is beautiful, stop and get some tupelo honey on the way. Explore some of the most interesting shops in the south, eat tons of oysters, go fishing and just relax. But when you go, definately stay at the House of Tartts, get a glass of wine and a book and hang out on the front porch...this is what a vacation is supposed to be.

  • Liked — feeling like we left the real world behind
  • Disliked — having to go back to the real world when we left
