My family and I were scheduled to spend a week on St. George Island. The week was to conclude with the wedding of my son at our rental property.
Tropical Storm Debby got in the way and really messed things up for us. We called on the Gibson Inn to come to our rescue and they did a great job. Sharon and PJ at the front desk did a wonderful job of juggling rooms for several different families during the week. The staff was great to us and they really helped with the two pets we had with us.
I cannot say enough good things about the hotel, the staff and our stay. It is a slower pace, but really enjoyable. The Gibson Inn saved us and made it a great week for all.
We finally had the wedding ceremony on the beach and came back to the Inn for a great reception and dinner after the wedding. The staff was great in all respects.
- 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
