We stayed three nights in a cozy room on the second floor. The hosts worked hard to make their guests comfortable. The restored inn is beautifully decorated, and has wide porches with chairs and tables. We enjoyed sitting outside in the evenings. The restaurant was very good. The continental breakfast was served from 6:00-9:00, or you could purchase brunch on the weekends, beginning at 9:00. The inn is right in the center of the historic section of town. It is easy to do a walking tour.
- 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
