... here is a serene place to visit with lots of quiet beaches and many shells to observe. I would suggest renting a bike and cruising up and down the island to see it in its entirety. St George Island was a special place with an island vibe that you don't see much in northern ...

My favorite city name so far is Apalatchicola. Lots of vowels there, which appeals to me. It's near the last point on the continent before we headed over the bridge to St. George Island and the campground. The bay, of the same name, is shallow and an important spot for the local oystermen. They use large, long tongs to pry ...

We helped Breck pack up his well organized cart. Handling his poles with care, he put each piece of equipment and gear in its own place. His sit on top, ocean kayak sits on top in- between the poles. Very workable and efficient systems. Breck can pull this cart by himself through soft sand but of course we took turns and helped push to lighten the load. Tired and elated, ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Gibson Inn Apalachicola
We stayed at the Gibson Inn for 2 nights in October and we loved it. We found the Queen room to be of a good size and full of character. We had breakfast and dinner, both of which we found to be excellent. The staff were friendly and helpful.
It is handy for visiting Cape San Blas and St Georges Island.
We will definitely stay at the Gibson Inn again next time we are in Apalachicola.
The Gibson Inn is truly a little jewel. My boyfriend and I stayed there for one night and had a fantastic time. If you are looking for some peace and quiet, this is your place. Definitely take advantage of the upstairs veranda. Get a bottle of champagne, and sit in the beautiful weather in the comfy rocking chairs at night.
A perfect place to get away - great staff, comfortable rooms
The Gibson Inn was a wonderful surprise. A few of my staff went for several days to get away. We all loved our rooms-every room different and clean. The staff was personable and very helpful in helping us find sporting activities in the area. The food was exceptional-we ended up having all our meals there. So nice to find that places like this still exist without charging an arm and two legs. Thank you Gison Inn!
Had a great weekend. Staff was great and the building which is almost 100 years old was in tremendous shape, and truely represented a period of old times and southern charm, we will certainly return and request 309 the room haunted by the friendley ghost.
I had seen the Gibson many times on my way to Indian pass, Florida and decided to surprise a friend with an overnight visit at the Gibson.
Great old place, needs more of a breakfast
I did already above..... What is the store down the street from you ?
It's in or below the Veranda.
How delightful to know that there is a place you can go where you can find true Southern hospitality....that place is the Gibson Inn. From our arrival to departure to the magnificent dinner at Nola's to the relaxing evening in the lounge, we truely found a "diamond in the ruff". The Innkeepers, Pamela & Tony, along with their staff, made us feel so comfortable. We can't wait to do it again. Thank you for making us feel so special.

Loved this place
Recently my daughter and I stayed at this historic and charming inn. We couldn't book the same room for our entire stay and had to switch rooms. Both rooms were excellent. We had occasion to dine in the dining room and relax in the bar. The service was wonderful, the conversations stimulating, and the staff so very friendly and accommodating. We spent most days just relaxing on the porch, taking in the views and enjoying the ambiance. In all, this was one of our best vacations ever. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and plan to make the Gibson Inn a regular "home away from home".
One night of hell!
I stayed one horrible night at the Gibson Inn about two years ago. My room was filthy, the bed very uncomfortable and I could hear their washer and dryer all night long. I would never recommend this place to anyone.
