“Great little place to stay in Cape San Blas”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

Found this place on Trip Advisor when wanting to take a short two night trip to the Apalachicola area. I am very glad I came across this little gem. The inn is rather small with only seven rooms, each one unique. Check out their website for different room description. I stayed in the Scallop room which was perfectly located on the rear of ground floor looking out over lagoon. It has its own screened in porch. The gulf is across the street and down a shell road just a short distance. Beach and ocean were perfect here for swimming and sunning. Cape San Blas is a very secluded piece of land with very little traffic. Of course, other than a few small stores and shops, you need to go to Port St. Joe for more commercial areas with shops and restaurants. The inn is very clean and the breakfast Wendy brought me on the screened in porch was yummy. There are not a lot of places to choose from in the area, but I believe this is probably the best. A little pricey but worth it if you want seclusion and privacy.

Room Tip: Choose the Scallop Room to get a ground floor rear location with its own screened in porch.

We go each summer and meet friends to scallop. A highlight of our trip is our stay at the Cape San Blas Inn. We have stayed here for 4 summer trips,and find the accommodations perfect. Our favorite room is the Scallop Room. Wendy, the inn keeper is the perfect hostess and her breakfast each morning is a special treat. We plan to return next summer!

Sept of 2012 we spent three nights at Cape San Blas Inn, this august we spent four. Each visit was a terrific experience in hospitality, beauty, and comfort. The first time we stayed upstairs, this time we stayed in a room that had a screened in porch and faced the bay. It was wonderful to grab a cup of fresh coffee at 8 and sit on the porch watching the bay. We saw a bald eagle, seabirds, a hummingbird came out to dine on the hibiscus outside the door.

The innkeepers, Tammy and Wendy, are incredibly welcoming and accommodating. They patiently answer questions, keep the inn sparkling clean, not easy I imagine with both sand on one side and bay on other other and serve a delicious breakfast each morning.

The inn is in a more residential sort of neighborhood rather than a strip of motels or hotels so it's peaceful and quiet. There were improvements, the dock to the bay has been rebuilt to make access easier for getting the canoes and kayak in the water, the canoes and kayak are now on a rack outside the shed for much easier access. The rooms now have the combination rain shower heads/hand held that is super nice. There are beach towels available, plenty of chairs on the deck to enjoy the view, or walk across the road (in four days I think we had to wait once for a car before crossing) to the beach and enjoy the warm water.

If you like quiet, laid back beaches with a touch of Old Florida, then you will enjoy Cape San Blas. My wife and I spent a weekend at the Inn for our anniversary, and we highly recommend it. The rooms are very clean and nicely decorated. We stayed in Turtle Shell on the second floor and had a great view of the bay and a private screened in porch. The gulf is just a short walk away and the small grocery across the street is very convenient. The distance from gulf to bay here is probably no more than 300 yards so although the Inn is on the Bay, the gulf is literally just across the street.

The Inn has bikes and kayaks for guests and we took advantage of both. We biked to the State Park at the end of the Cape and back and had a great time. We saw two deer on the bike ride almost close enough to touch.

As mentioned in several posts below, Wendy is a great hostess. We had wonderful homemade breakfast on our porch each morning and Wendy in her unassuming way helped us with anything we needed.

Don't miss Indian Pass Oyster Bar.

This is a great spot for a quiet, laid back couples beach trip. Highly, highly recommend it.

My wife and I travel to the Cape at least 4 times a year. Last trip we decided to stay Bayside instead of Oceanside, and I have to say we absolutely loved it. The Turtle room has a great view and very peaceful with Gulf access across the road. Wendy and her husband are the ultimate Hosts. We are returning in a couple of weeks and we are counting the days.

Room Tip: Turtle room is a little more expensize than other rooms, but well worth it.

We had a great time at the Cape Sans Blas Inn. Good food, clean new rooms, and plenty of activities (biking and kayaking are available free of charge). This is a place to visit over and over again with it's beautiful secluded beaches.
