Stayed 5 days at this lovely historical home, and it was truly a pleasure. That wrap-around porch is wonderful for sitting and enjoying the sea breezes (the cottage is about 3 block from Apalachicola bay), and inside it is very clean, comfortable, and has a modern kitchen that is well-equipped. Another thing we enjoyed was the very short walk to the historic district, and a little longer walk to the grocery store. We would definitely stay here again!!

The word charming is often overused, but definitely not in this case. We arrived at this little jewel of a cottage late in the evening and it was the perfect introduction to Apalachicola. We were smitten from the moment we walked in the door, and that feeling only deepened with each of the four nights we spent. The property is whistle clean, very comfortable and oozes all the sweet details of a coastal cottage built in the mid 1800s. We started and finished each perfect day sitting out on the porch. In between, we were able to walk just about everywhere. Raney Cottage and Apalach exceeded all expectations!!!

“Lovely House”
Reviewed June 2, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

What a great position, only a couple of minutes from the town with its fantastic Oyster bars, yet very quiet.
Was clean and tidy.
However, i think it was over priced for the facilities.
A large porch but cheap uncomfortable seats with an excuse for a table - really should have something more in keeping with the style of the property.
Instructions to get they were good, however pinning down the agent to pay was not so easy and was becoming a bit of a drag on our last day with the exchanges of emails.
Oh - beware the insects

While every attempt is made to ensure our cottage guests enjoy their stay, apparently, on the occasion of your visit, we did not fully succeed in that endeavor. Thank you for your observations.

Over the past 20 years we've made it a point to spend time in Apalachicola. Our favorite place to stay is the Raney Guest Cottage. It's within walking distance to everything in town and within easy driving distance to some of the best kept scenic and historical secrets of the "forgotten coast". We expect to return again and again.

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 and rental manager were both a pleasure to work with. I wish I was still there!

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 shops. We completely recommend it.

Liked best: How absolutely comfortable and homey it was.
Liked least: It is a great location but not scenic. That is just a virtue of where it is. The view is of a nondescript government building and parking lot. It doesn't feel like that when you are inside.
