I traveled with my husband to Cape San Blas to photograph a wedding there this past week, and we stayed at the lovely Cape San Blas Inn. The wedding was on a Wednesday night, but we stayed an extra day to have a little getaway vacation of our own and to celebrate our 11th anniversary. The Inn was just perfect for the relaxing 2 nights of our stay. We stayed in the Oyster room and, like others have reviewed, it was very clean and very comfortable. The breakfasts were great, and I thank George for accommodating my aversion to eggs the first morning.
We made use of the Inn's selection of canoes and paddled around Pig Island Thursday morning. I loved the fact that the bay is only a couple of feet deep considering I'm not much of a swimmer. And we had a huge sting ray glide under the boat!
The gulf is a pleasant little walk down the street and with CSB being so secluded, there was plenty of breathing room on the beach. There was a convenience store conveniently (ha!) located right across the street, and it's one of just a handful of businesses on the cape. Very nice and quiet - especially coming from the tourist onslaught that is Destin. Of course, that means you've got to travel a ways to Port St. Joe or Apalachicola to find a restaurant, but that was OK with us.
If we travel down to the CSB area again, we'll definitely be staying at the inn!
