A handle on adventure: natural wonders and splashes of fun abound -- from sugar-white sands and limestone caverns to dolphin excursions and charter cruises.
Guests at the APALACHICOLA RIVER INN will find themselves in the midst of a seafood lover's paradise within walking distance of historic downtown Apalachicola, coined "Oystertown" by locals. Guests may dine at one of the fine seafood restaurants or stay put at their riverfront lodge to feast in one of its three seafood eateries -- Caroline's River Dining, Boss Oyster and Roseate Spoonbill Lounge. The nearby downtown district presents a range of shopping venues, from art galleries and antiques shops to clothing stores and fine boutiques. You can fish in Apalachicola River or relax on the white beaches of St. George Island and Cape San Blas, a short drive away.
The inn's main building has 23 riverfront rooms with pillow-top beds, ceiling fans and French doors opening to riverfront balconies. Nearby, the River Cottage Jacuzzi Suites offer three more roomy options. An upscale liquor and cigar store was added recently.
