My husband and I stayed at the House of Tartts last New Years. we came down without reservations and stumbled upon this old house with a phone number. we called and got. " Virginia" who told us to look in the mailbox for the keys and if we did not mind putting linens on the bed we could sleep in the front room. the price she quoted was $110.00. when we got inside, we found we had to clean the bathrooms, change the beds and clean the kitchen I called Virginia and negotiated a lower Rate. she was agreeable, told us where to leave the cash. We had dinner out, came back, slept well, checked out the next day. We started receiving very strange phone calls about two days later telling us we didnt leave enough money. it was Virginia, she was clling me by a different name and telling me I slept in the Queen room. she was obviously confusing us with another guest.
Aside from this confusion, We decided to return to Apalachicola with a group and stay at the House of Tartts . We once again made reservations through Virginia by email in May, 2012 for a three night stay over New Years 2013. We were 5 couples coming from all over the east coast for a get together. Unfortunately, I had to cancel the carriage house due to a change of plans I contacted Virginia as soon as I knew. I was told this was not a problem. Now, less than three weeks from our arrival, Virginia emails me that we have been bumped out because the owner rented the house to someone else.
Do yourself a favor and stay somewhere else! This is the most unprofessional, disorganized group I have ever dealt with.
