The Space

The Cottage sits 4 easy-walk blocks from Carrabelle harbor. In 2012 the city completed new accessible sidewalks throughout the harbor area, so all of the little downtown is reachable .

1933 was the year a father completed this home for a wedding present for his daughter. It has all been recently remodeled, including central AC, stainless appliances and marble kitchen countertop. Large, open interiors are perfect for easy vacationing. Cable TV/DVD/WiFi always available. 3 bedrooms, one bath (between 2 bedrooms), suitable for a max of 6 people. So fully-equipped, just bring yourselves and food and drink!

Construction is tongue-and-groove pine, used for floors, walls and ceilings. The house sits up 2 easy steps, so that it is well-ventilated underneath. The large, breezy front porch runs the full width of the house and can seat a crowd for relaxing reading or socializing. Screen doors fore and aft allow nice air circulation in the temperate months if you prefer fresh air instead of AC.

2 miles to Carrabelle Beach - the whitest sand beach in the area, and we have multiple access points into state and national forests, and multiple free boat launch points. Do nothing or do something every day--Come see Carrabelle and the Forgotten Coast!

Guest Access

The Cottage, in addition to the porches, has a paver courtyard, open deck with seating and BBQ grill. Many guests like to set up the old laptop or tablet (or whatever you call it this week) on the dining room table in peace and quiet and use the WiFi.

Interaction with Guests

Hopefully you will like the fact that we don't feel that we have to become your new "best friends". We are here to provide you a comfortable, relaxing squeaky-clean stay in a beautiful coastal environment. We are available if you need anything.

The Neighborhood

The Cottage enjoys its place on the main north-south street in town that leads from the harbor to the forests. The neighborhood is peopled by nice, quiet families who enjoy the peace and quiet.

We provide recycling service and composting to help control your waste, and the landfills in general.

We know the area and its people and services well - ask us anytime about anything!

Getting Around

We have good sidewalk coverage of nearby places, and the Cottage is right on the best health walk-along-the-harbor route in town. All parking is free. And don't forget--no traffic lights within 27 miles!

Other Things to Note

Copies of the Guide to the Big Bend Scenic Byway are in the living room. You may also see and download the 'pdf' on their website. A great travel info guide for the Forgotten Coast.

House Rules

The Cottage is a 1933 building, built well but to old standards. No insulation, for instance, so we ask that all guests follow reasonable conservation practices.
All systems are 21st century, so your stay will be comfortable.
We discourage (but allow) children under 12, because we are not child-proof.
A dog is welcome, but not his fleas, climbing on furniture (no dogs in beds!) or excessive barking. Thanks!
