What does a place steeped in cultural history and tradition, and a property in magnificent condition with cash flow to be envious of have in common? They can all be found at the Coombs Inn nestled in the heart of the quaint fishing village of Apalachicola, Florida.

This boutique inn on the “Forgotten Coast” of Florida boasts 23 guest rooms and suites housed in four buildings. Several of the rooms have whirlpool tubs, fireplaces, or private decks or porch access, wood floors and architectural details, and all boast high ceilings, lovely furnishings, and a sophisticated décor and ambience.

Originally built in 1905 by James N. Coombs, a native of Maine, the Mansion has lived a rich and varied life. Today, with 10 guest rooms, it is the heart of the Coombs Inn and serves as the place where guests check in and enjoy breakfast. The Mansion affords guests deep porches to enjoy the breezes and also houses a very spacious owner’s apartment on the third floor. The Veranda Suites, adjacent to the mansion, houses 4 luxurious two-room suites, two of which have kitchenettes. A block away, the Villas houses 8 guest rooms, including the bridal suite. The adjacent Carriage House has a lovely suite upstairs and a spacious and fully equipped laundry on the ground floor.
