I don't usually write reviews, but after spending 3 nights at the Coombs House, I felt I needed to. From the booking (by phone) to the heartfelt adieus, the staff were remarkably friendly, helpful and professional. They were well informed of the area and shared about local eateries, attractions and folklore. They made the trip vastly more enjoyable. As for the Inn, well it was elegant, comfortable, homey, charming and mysterious. The tales of Mr. Coombs' ghost visiting his old room (the one we stayed in) added to the charm and mystificaton of the Inn. Now to the food! Breakfast, served every morning, was freshly prepared and side dishes were abundantly available. The food was excellent. Sightseeing in Apalachicola is limited due to the size of the town, but it has galleries, antique shops and gift shops aplenty and quaint working waterfront. Oysters are its hallmark and they are the best I have ever had. Apalachicola is home to one of the best Nautical Treasures I have come across, it is The Tin Shed, and is directly across form the river. The surrounding area is lush with tidal preserves and watersports. Fishing and kayaking seeming to be the most popular. Also the beaches in surrounding towns are superb. All in all, we would highly recommend a visit to the area and The Coombs House Inn is a must. We will return in the spring for sure.

My stay in the Magnolia Room of this wonderfully restored home with all the old wood and antique furnishings, was like a trip back in time. The innkeeper and staff were friendly and helpful and made me feel special. Breakfast in the dining room was a culinary delight and the bed was so comfortable that I hated to leave. Hoping that I will get to return again soon.

Elegant but relaxing B & B, and great location for shopping & dining in laid back coastal Apalachicola, FL. Would plan to return the very next time that we are in the area.

It was so relaxing to slow down to a simpler time period and enjoy the beautiful Coombs House Inn. I would recommend it heartily for anyone with a sense of history.
