This Inn is a historic landmark in the centre of a very pretty and historic Floridian town. The rooms are all very different but beautifully furnished, some with four poster beds. It is spotlessly clean and offers every comfort. There is an excellent restaurant and bar and the reception and bar staff are friendly, warm and helpful. happy hour in the bar is pure joy and frequented by many local characters. The porches have beautiful traditional swing seats and rockers where you can sip a beer or cocktail and watch the sunset or the people. If you are very lucky you may get to meet the famous Lucky-Dog and her thespian human; this will guarantee a very entertaining interlude. I thoroughly recommend the Gibson Inn it's a must for all visitors to Apalchicola. From the Harrisons in the UK.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Gibson Inn is a fine example of Florida "Cracker" Architecture. This was the style of wood frame structure used widely in the 19th and early 20th century in Florida. These homes and businesses are characterized by metal roofs, raised floors, high ceilings, center hallways, and large wrap around porches. A widows walk and cupola crown the tin roof, all a reflection of the area's steamboat past. Built in 1907 of native heart pine and black cypress, the inn soon became known as a first class luxury hotel and was the only one between Pensacola and Jacksonville heated entirely by steam. Now listed on the National Historic Register of Historic Places. Many of the 30 guest rooms are uniquely appointed with authentic antique furnishings, cable TV, telephone, and wireless internet. Each guest room has its own full private bath. ... more less
