If only I could take up permanent residence here!

Although the room was scarcely large enough to hold the bed, and the coffee wasn't ready till 8, and there was sand in the bed the first night, and one had to walk across the street for beach access... yet the inn, the bay, the ocean, the protected bike lane (glorious!), the quiet-- these elements combined to utterly enchant and forever endear me to Cape San Blas and this dear little Inn. The owner and managers were all kind, responsive, understanding. Fellow guests were all interesting, simpatico, and some have proved friends. Highly recommend the rooms with enclosed porches. Wish I had availed myself of the complimentary kayaks and canoes!

Innkeeper Response
We strive to give each of our guests a remarkable experience while staying with us at the Cape San Blas Inn and deeply regret that we were unable to meet all of your expectations. Each of our guest rooms are unlike the other and while the Scallop Shell room is in fact one of our smallest rooms, it is especially popular with guests because it offers a private screened in porch with an unobstructed view of the bay. Being situated on the bay rather than the gulf affords our guests an opportunity most beach goers don’t ever experience while visiting this beautiful peninsula. I also apologize that we were not aware that you would have enjoyed coffee before eight am. We do our best to accommodate the desires of our guests and have a single serve kurig that we can put in the room of our early risers. We sincerely hope for the opportunity to serve you again and hope to make your time spent with us thoroughly delightful. You may want to consider the Turtle Shell room. The Turtle Shell room is our premier room that is both spacious and has a gorgeous view of the bay from a private screened in porch. With Best Regards, Wendy

I have been visiting the Cape San Blas / Port St. Joe area for over twenty years and have stayed in a lot of places. The CSB Inn is one of the best.


ALWAYS A GREAT PLACE TO STAY

It’s hard to leave this place! This was our third time there. If you want to feel like you are home with a warm welcome, comfortable rooms, amazing breakfasts, tons of amenities then this is the place for you! We feel like they are our family now! We met the actual owners while on our trip and they are just as wonderful as the Innkeeper! We can’t say enough wonderful things about this place! Looking forward to our next trip “home!”


Just Perfect

Every thing about the Cape San Blas Inn was perfect. Wendy was welcoming and friendly. Our room (Oyster Shell) was comfortable and clean. Our bed was great - we slept like babies. Breakfast was delicious - quiche and hot fresh muffins on Saturday and fresh waffles on Sunday. We used the hot tub at sunset one evening and it was convenient and relaxing with a beautiful view of the bay and the sunset over the roof of the inn. We loved the other guests. The Inn was full but we could never hear anyone when we were in our private room. Cape San Blas is beautiful and quiet. We loved everything about our stay at Cape San Blas Inn.


Wonderful!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

From Billy and Georgia Dowell We had an awesome time relaxing and doing a little fishing. We met another couple who told us where the bigger fish were. The view from our room was beautiful "Turtle Shell" and we actually saw a Blue Heron perched in a tree. I never saw one in a tree before.


Very, very Lovely

Arrived early and Wendy showed us to our room. Second floor Coquina room. Immaculate, comfortable. The Inn was comfy, outside had nice table/chairs, chaise....I had lunch out there and read & walked to their pier and looked at the bay. Breakfast was yummy both mornings. Bay in backyard and crystal clear ocean across the street. They provided beach chairs (that have backstraps) and kayak, canoe, bikes for free use. The hubby and I highly recommend. I lOVED, LOVED the homemade apple fritter with breakfast!


Beautiful location

George was a very welcoming and helpful host. His breakfast was delicious and served sitting outside on the deck overlooking the lake, wonderful. The room was very comfortable. The location is perfect for visiting the beautiful beaches of Cape San Blas.
