The Gibson Inn has such a warm, welcoming, lived in feel, which is what I love most about it. I've stayed there on trips to charming Apalachicola for the past 20 years, and it always feels like coming home. From its friendly staff who are willing to recommend great dining spots or bring you a drink on the graceful wraparound porch, to its newly reopened gourmet restaurant (called Ira's) and graceful old bar, to the wonderful antique clawfoot tubs -- this hotel has all the comforts and amenities I need. The Gibson offered me beach towels for my day on St. George Island, good coffee each morning with a nice little complimentary breakfast in the bar, a good mattress (kind of a big deal), and best of all, I was left alone to enjoy my stay there. Love this historic inn and this town. Authentic Old Florida at its finest.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Gibson Inn is a fine example of Florida "Cracker" Architecture. This was the style of wood frame structure used widely in the 19th and early 20th century in Florida. These homes and businesses are characterized by metal roofs, raised floors, high ceilings, center hallways, and large wrap around porches. A widows walk and cupola crown the tin roof, all a reflection of the area's steamboat past. Built in 1907 of native heart pine and black cypress, the inn soon became known as a first class luxury hotel and was the only one between Pensacola and Jacksonville heated entirely by steam. Now listed on the National Historic Register of Historic Places. Many of the 30 guest rooms are uniquely appointed with authentic antique furnishings, cable TV, telephone, and wireless internet. Each guest room has its own full private bath. ... more less
