Coombs House Inn
Ranked #1 of 3 Apalachicola B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 31 August 2012

Apalachicola and the Coobs House Inn was the highlight of my 8 day Florida work trip. I absolutely loved this inn! The room was adorable with a door to the veranda. Breakfast, tea time, and wine/cheese in the evening were all amazing. I would definitely stay here again if I go back.

I absolutely loved the room we were in (biltmore room). Having the privacy was amazing & loved the great service we got!! Couldn't have stayed at a better place any where. We will defiantly be back in the future. The only thing we didn't like is that some of the restaurants had very rude & disrespectful staff members.

Coombs House Inn was by far the best B & B we have ever visited. It was well preserved and appointed. We would have been delighted to stay in any of the lovely rooms. The inn was within walking distance of the harbor, shopping, art galleries, live theatre and great food. The
service we received was uncomparable to any we've ever received. Estella was fabulous!

Room Tip: Save some time in the evening to spend on the verandas.

Quaint. What else is there to say. The villa was very beautiful. The place is full of antiques. Each room has it's own charm and the ones I toured, I would enjoy any of them.
Breakfast was good, service and the people were all smiling and helpful. The room was very clean

Room Tip: If you want to be a little away from everyone choose the Villa.

The Coombs House Inn is a nice B & B located in the heart of Apalachicola. We stayed there for a few days since it was so close to St. George Island. The Inn is located within walking distance of downtown and the historic sites. There is a bit of traffic noise since the home is on the main road, but traffic dies down in the evenings.

Upon arrival, the room smelled nice and looked clean, only saw a few cobwebs and dust. Might need to do a deep cleaning soon. Beds/ pillows are a little lumpy, might want to bring your own pillow next time. The rooms share temperature controls so we had one evening where it was very warm, making it difficult to sleep. Thank goodness we had a ceiling fan.

The staff is very friendly and professional. We were greeted with a warm welcome on our arrival from Estella. She was very helpful in suggesting restaurants, things to do, etc. She makes you feel right at home!

I would say the only negative was the breakfast both mornings—very disappointing. The bacon is pre-cooked/ microwaved and both egg dishes were dry and not very good. They do offer Starbuck’s coffee and a variety of teas plus muffins, cereals, etc.

Places to eat and visit—Up the Creek Restaurant (great oysters), Café con Leche (great coffee and pastries), Green Door (cute shop) and of course visit St. George Island. The beach is just beautiful!

We truly enjoyed our stay, and look forward to going back!
