“Lovely House”
Reviewed 2 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

What a great position, only a couple of minutes from the town with its fantastic Oyster bars, yet very quiet.
Was clean and tidy.
However, i think it was over priced for the facilities.
A large porch but cheap uncomfortable seats with an excuse for a table - really should have something more in keeping with the style of the property.
Instructions to get they were good, however pinning down the agent to pay was not so easy and was becoming a bit of a drag on our last day with the exchanges of emails.
Oh - beware the insects

While every attempt is made to ensure our cottage guests enjoy their stay, apparently, on the occasion of your visit, we did not fully succeed in that endeavor. Thank you for your observations.

Over the past 20 years we've made it a point to spend time in Apalachicola. Our favorite place to stay is the Raney Guest Cottage. It's within walking distance to everything in town and within easy driving distance to some of the best kept scenic and historical secrets of the "forgotten coast". We expect to return again and again.

“Even lovelier than the photos!”

Charming, historic guest cottage in charming, historic Apalachicola. Only 15-20 minutes to the beautiful beaches of St. George Island, a bit farther to the equally gorgeous beach at St. Joseph Peninsula. There's also plenty to enjoy in Apalachicola, with great restaurants and shops.

Quite possibly the best-stocked rental house I've ever visited; the only thing missing was wine! The owner and rental manager were both a pleasure to work with. I wish I was still there!

Our first reaction on entering the cottage was "we love it"! This is an absolutely adorable, charming guest home. Why would you stay in a hotel if you could stay here? This is the perfect place to stay if you want to be in downtown Apalachicola. It is comfortable, well equipped and an easy walk to all the restaurants and shops. We completely recommend it.

Liked best: How absolutely comfortable and homey it was.
Liked least: It is a great location but not scenic. That is just a virtue of where it is. The view is of a nondescript government building and parking lot. It doesn't feel like that when you are inside.

“Luxurious accommodations, charmingly appointed cottage in the heart of Apalachicola!”

We visited during the coldest weather in recent memory and were always toasty warm in the Raney. The fully equipped kitchen allowed us the option of eating in, and the close proximity to the waterfront, unique shops, seafood obtained directly from the bay, and old-town architecture afforded even the most reluctant walkers among us the opportunity to stroll slowly through this lovely old town and easily return for breaks. Staying at the Raney in Apalachicola truly is an experience of time travel to the past with all of the amenities the present has to offer! We will be returning often!
