Description of the Saint George Island vacation cottage rental
This cozy cottage is centrally located and offers great views of the Apalachicola Bay and St. George Island. It sits on the north side of the road and the waterfront is on south side. The waterfront is great for fishing, picnicing, sunbathing, or just your viewing pleasure. St. George Island which has one of the most beautiful beaches in the world is just across the bridge to the south of the cottage. Apalachicola, full of historic homes and ambiance, bustling waterfront with lots of artistic shops, and great seafood restaurants is just across the bridge to the west. Our county is a wonderful place for beaching it, fishing, and nature. There are no highrises or shopping meccas. We are back to nature. Most of our county is either state or national forests and estuaries. Wildlife and marinelife are plentiful. We are also one of Florida's great fishing areas. Whether it's fresh water, bay and flats fishing, or off-shore, a day on the water is usually a successful day.


We have 250' of frontage on the Apalachicola Bay which is great to enjoy those beautiful sunsets and sunrises.
Our cottage is not brand new; however, it is very comfortable, nicely furnished, and very affordable. There is a small building in back with washer & dryer, and it makes a great place to store your bicycles, golf clubs, fishing equipment, etc. Also if you are a golfer, the St. James Bay Golf Course is only about 20 minutes away. It is a world class course.
If you like to fish, the surf, bayfront, and riverfront offer all you need; however, there are plenty of captains in Carrabelle & Apalachicola if you need a guide. There are also boats & sailboats available for your own journeys.

We also have several docks on the New River in Carrabelle that can be used for your pleasure. Great for fishing, picnicing, or just relaxing. The river is very beautiful and quiet. Lots of wildlife.

Eastpoint Seafood: Our cottage is in Eastpoint, just across the bridge from St. George Island. In Eastpoint, the waterfront is filled with small seafood houses. Lots of oyster boats and shrimp boats line the waterfront. The seafood markets offer fresh shrimp, fish (grouper, snapper, flounder, mullet), oysters, (of course) , scallops, and blue crab.
Places of interest: Oyster Capital of the World, Eastpoint; Lafayett Park, Apalachicola; Chapman Botanical Garden, Apalachicola; Orman House built in 1838; Apalachicola National Esturary Research Reserve; St. Vincent National Park Museum; John Gorrie Museum; St. George Island State Park; St. George Island Lighthouse/Cape St. George Light; World's smallest Police Station; Carrabelle; Crooked River Lighthouse, Carrabelle; Camp Gordon Johnston WWII Museum; Walt G.

Relaxation by the bay

We enjoyed our stay by the bay in this relaxing house. We were able to watch the sun rise over the bay each morning and take our morning stroll in the sand by the bay. Very convenient to everything, yet secluded for privacy. We loved it and plan to return in the future.

Bay front cottage!

This was the first time my family had spent a week away from home and in a house. We loved it!! The house was adorable and homey. With four kids we had plenty of room. The kids were a little lonely but we all enjoyed it! Hated to leave. We saw dolphins swimming in the bay every morning.

This would have been nice, if we stayed here

We stayed at Ocean Mile 300, J-2. It was very nice. Very clean, and that is very important to me. I would stay again and recommend to my friends.
