I am in love with The Old Carrabelle Hotel Cottage. I stayed 3 weeks! would have stayed longer. Skip and Kathy make sure that everything is comfortable and lovely. They are always available, pleasant and right there for you if you need them. They had a way of being right there while giving me all the privacy I needed. I stayed in the cottage and found it so amazingly charming, comfortable, cheerful and relaxing. The feeling was warm, cozy, clean. Kind of an "ahhhhh, this is awesome" feeling. All my friends who visited me there felt exactly the same way. I just cannot explain just how nice it was. Every thing from the shower to the porch was lovely. All the little touches and personalizations felt just "right". The decorating was warm, cheery, very Florida, and soooo comfortable. And I had everything, everything I needed. Best ammenities going.
On the practical side: the place was so very convenient to everything, the water, the store, the gas station and to every road going in and out of Carrabelle. Yet it was very quiet and private.
I just cannot say enough about The Old Carrabelle Hotel and the Cottage I stayed in.
One of the most wonderful aspects for me, was that Skip and Kathy were so very accommodating in my planning stages while I had to change dates a few times and even when I was uncertain if I could make it. I wasn't the easiest person to book and yet all the calls I had in with Skip were patient, pleasant and kind. They also were so accommodating when I wanted to stay a few more nights. I would have stayed longer, it was that nice, but other guests were booked up!
I hope to stay there each time I visit Carrabelle and my friends there. Thank you Skip and Kathy for making my stay there the most comfortable and home like I have had while I travel. And I travel a lot! :-)
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Old Carrabelle Hotel in Carrabelle, Florida is a "Key West style inn on The Forgotten Coast". Once the end-of-the-line railroad hotel, now you may enjoy all the modern comforts in an Old Florida casual atmosphere. There is just something about the experience of a 1900-ish inn at the coast (or a coastal cottage at the coast) that no newer motel-hotel can equal. And we are a very different B&B operation - free beach restaurant breakfasts for Hotel guests, and self check-in -- just for starters. Make your own reservation online, and receive back a confirmation with all the info you may need. Don't Expect: traffic lights, lots of people, McHamburgers, bungee jumps or late-night noise. Do expect: the best seafood, eco-activity opportunities in every direction, cultural/historical activities and a lot of peace and quiet time on the property, in the forest or on the beach or water! ... more less
