The space

The Old Carrabelle Hotel is a completely renovated historic home one block from scenic Carrabelle Harbor. Decorated in airy "Key West" style, it features over 120 feet of outdoor verandas with views, is within easy walking distance to all harbor activities and five minutes from the beach. Sea birds, dolphins and other wildlife add natural interest to this breathtakingly beautiful area. (Important note: the $77 rate shown is our lowest room rate without tax. Range is up to $107 plus tax)

The picturesque village of Carrabelle lies approximately one hour southwest of Tallahassee. Our completely renovated 120-year old home is near the center of this gentle coastal town, only a block from the harbor.

Start your day with a made-to-order restaurant breakfast at at at a local restaurant, then to eco-exploration of water and forest. Many outdoor activities abound: from sportfishing, sailing and island-hopping to soaking up abundant sunshine on our sugar-sand beaches or paddling along a quiet river, there is something memorable for all on the lovely Forgotten Coast.

Like golf? St. James Bay is a PGA-caliber Audobon-certified public course, minutes from the Hotel. Like seafood? Every restaurant in town and within a short drive in both directions features seafood as well as other choices. Like chilling? That's what we do best!


Cool green hues accent this whimsical queen bedroom, with its tiled bath built out on what was once part of the porch. Wood tones, bird prints and comfy bedlinens complete your trip into our own nature preserve where seabirds quietly pass their days.

Rates: $ 87/77- depends on length of stay

Guest access

The Hotel is really an old 5-bedroom house, with wraparound porches on 2 levels, an open courtyard and covered cabana deck with wet bar and BBQ grill. Of course, the first floor rooms: Monkey Bar, living and dining room are available -- 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 nice south light.

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.

Other things to note

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

Response from Skip 'N Kathy:
Thanks Briana! We very seldom add our own statements here, because our system is so automated we never see most of our guests. But we saw you! A totally pleasant visit, before and during. Come again!

This was a fabulous little trip. The hubs and I live close, but not close enough to enjoy fishing all day, sunshine, cocktails, and then a drive home, so this was a great little get away. It truly felt like home away from home. Check in and out was a breeze and we had everything we could need. Thanks for the stay.

Skip 'N Kathy's place is adorable! Check-in was beyond easy (I arrived late at night, and everything was prepared to make it a seamless process). The hotel itself is lovely, and I was surprised at how spacious, yet cozy the room was. I loved the attached bath with tub! Next time I'm coming through Carrabelle, I'm definitely coming back here!

Skip & Kathy were great. When we arrived an envelope was waiting for us in the mail box and had all the information we needed. This spot was quaint and offered the r&r that we needed. Thank you both for a lovely stay.

Loved our stay here! We were only here for one night, would have loved to stay longer. The room was very clean and comfortable. Very nice hotel and town, and close to the beach.

The Carrabelle was a great find, what AirBnB is all about. This very cool Key Largo type property was a perfect place to stay, our dog was welcome and we were comfortable, we stayed in the Regatta room, we could here some music from a local bar but not enough to disturb us, if I hadn't been so tired I would have been in the bar enjoying the music. The hosts were very communicative beforehand and self check in worked great. The availability of coffee/tea and a refrigerator right by the room was wonderful. WiFi was available and worked. I would highly recommend this place and look forward to staying there again for a longer period.

We instituted and maintain the Key West style of the Hotel because we loved the old tropical "Wild West" ambience of the island, its architecture, landscaping and its casual atmosphere. And Carrabelle these days has much of that flavor, at a much lower price.

If you like casual and natural, this may be your favorite spot!
NOW: please note that with the number of rooms/cottage(s) we have, we can NOT keep up-to-date calendars on all booking sites. So if you see a calendar, DO NOT go by it!
