Rental Home -
3 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 6
Carrabelle, Florida
Winchester Cottage was built as a wedding gift in 1933. It now sits under the canopy of 2 old oaks, on our main street but several blocks away from the main intersection at the harbor. It has 3 bedrooms, one bath (between 2 bedrooms), and is fully furnished and supplied with some bath and kitchen items. Compact yet roomy, doorways and walls have been widened and remodeled for openness and to create a light and airy feel.

Construction is tongue-and-groove pine, used for floors, walls and ceilings. The house sits up 2 easy steps, so that it is well-ventilated underneath. The large, breezy front porch runs the full width of the house and can seat a crowd for relaxing reading or socializing.

We appreciate the good words, and we've worked to earn them. Cottages built in the 1930s just aren't new construction, but with the complete remodeling we've done, it should be quaint AND comfortable! Come back again! Skip and Kathy

Additional Rate and Availability Information
No additional fees except in the case of property damage. 6 guests is maximum allowed.

'No Pets' really means 'No lap dogs, fleas, or incessantly barking dogs'. The floors are wood or tile, actually good for dogs. The furniture is not for dogs. So if you sleep with your little 'baby', that won't work -- thanks! :) $25 fee.

Another note: the 'weekend night' rate shown above at $147 is in error. Day of week doesn't affect the rate. --We are trying to fix it.
