“soothing inn”
Reviewed 11 February 2005

My husband and I are leaving today for our latest weekend at our favorite inn. Regretfully, our Airdale Terrier, Sadie will not be coming with us this time as, at her age she has developed arthritis so is not able to manage the stairs. We have photos of Sadie sleeping under a rocker on the 2nd story porch when she was a 10# pup, she has visited with us many times since as an 80 pound adult. She enjoyed the anticipation of the sighting of a resident feline at every turn. One thing we love about the inn is the people/pet-friendly atmosphere. We discovered the inn many years ago and usually try to get there for our Feb. 9th wedding anniversary. We will leave today for this years, our 37th together, restful weekend.
One of the most charming things at the Gibson is the Mystery Weekend. In all our visits we have never participated in a Mystery Weekend, however we had made reservations last year to go with some dear friends. we had to cancel at the last minute, but they went. They won, and we joined them in August for thier first anniversary celebration at thier (new) favorite inn. They were there as guests of the Gibson, as that was the prize they had won on for winning the Mystery game.
The location affords a welcome change from our fast-paced routine. What a wonderful place to rejeuvinate yourself in order to continue on a while longer enduring the stresses of life.
Thank you Gibson in, see you tonight.

This is far by the most fablulous Inn. Gibson Inn. We were there for Murder Mystery and I never had so much fun in my life. The staff was great. The story line was great. Pamela and Tony made us feel like family.
I advise everyone to check out Gibson Inn specially on Murder Mystery Weekend.

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
