If you are looking for a place to go without building a time machine. Than the GIBSON INN in Apalachicola,FL. is the place to go. The minute you step into the inn your time travel begins. It already feels like it is the turn of the century and I mean 1900. The rich history surounds you and you feel as if you just stepped back in time. The rooms are charming and clean yet the bath room has all the modern things you will want to have but tastfully coverd in decorations of the past.The bed was large and comfortable. Our 3 night stay at the inn was a wonderfull trip into the past. The people who work there where warm and welcomed us into their home. Tha bar has an old world charm and the drinks are well made. The Gibson Inn reminds me of the Inn in the movie Somewhere in Time with Jane Seymour and Christopher Reeve. If it's ROMANCE and LOVE you are looking for try a weekend at the GIBSON INN !! :-)
- 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
