“A Luxurious B&B and More!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2012

Our visit to the Coombs House Inn was absolutely fabulous. The best words to describe it are comfort, hospitality, warmth, charm and of course luxury. The Inn has been carefully and wonderfully restored by Lynn Wilson. Not only is it an amazing B&B, the house has an interesting history. Our room the Coombs Suite was a beautifully spacious room with a rich Victorian décor including a king size four poster bed. A large bathroom with a whirlpool tub, separate glass shower and two pedestal sinks was an extra special touch from the usual B&B. The staff was superb always alert to any needs or special requests. Breakfast in the dining room each morning included a hot item (breakfast burrito, French Toast with blueberries and cream cheese, etc.) with fruit as well as a variety of bagels, muffins and pastries. On weekends they host a wine and cheese hour where we had the opportunity to meet several other guests. Actually, the Inn has three separate houses with a variety of room and suite options. We found it very convenient to downtown Apalachicola –only six blocks away. It has plenty of parking, too. Extras we enjoyed were the complimentary bright yellow bicycles which are great for touring this small historic town and the numerous city parks. Complimentary beach chairs, towels, and umbrellas were welcome for our visit to St. George Island State Park beach. Be sure to visit with Lynn if she is around. An amazing and dynamic lady! She gave us great suggestions for our visit as did her staff. We highly recommend the Coombs House Inn for any visit to Apalachicola area.

Room Tip: We were in the Coombs Room which is upstairs of the main house. Very convenient to the dining room...

This is our third visit to the Coombs House. This year we decided to stay for 2 nights as one night did not give us the time to explore the lovely shops in town. We also had time to visit St. George Island. We found the staff to be very helpful and friendly. We always enjoyed the breakfast and the lovely dining room. We loved the Owl Cafe for dinner and Bosc Oyster for our wonderful oysters on the half shell. We will be back, as we enjoyed the Coombs House and the charm of historic Appalachacola.

Room Tip: We personally like the rooms that open on the veranda, upstairs and downstairs.

I feel like I didn't stay at the same inn as many of these other guests. We came for our five year anniversary. Our room was very pretty, but was not insultated well. We could hear everything from the rooms around us. We were also located on 98 and by 7am it was too noisy from traffic to sleep in. Both bicycles we tried to use were broken. Our two person jacuzzi tub spat out debri every time you turned it on. The breakfast was not at all what we expected. On the first day, we arrived only 50 minutes after opening and most items had run out. These items were not replaced, you just got what was left. Our "hot" food was cold on both days and not particularly good to boot. The innkeeper was very nice, but the woman who checked us in was rude. Honestly, not worth the money at all. We will not be coming back.

Staff very friendly and helpful. Room was always clean and tended to by 11am after we returned from breakfast in the main house dining room (which is delicious and plenty of variety). No complaints about the Coombs House Inn whatsoever. Downtown is 2 blocks away with delicious seafood and oyster options galore. Highly recommend Tamara's Cafe and Owl Cafe/Tap Room for lunch/dinner and Verandas is great for brunch. We had a very pleasant stay and hope to return soon!

Room Tip: We stayed in room 19, away from the main house which meant a much quieter environment. Room is big e...

This was our second time staying at the Coombs House, and it was as wonderful as I had remembered. The rooms are lovely and very comfortable. This includes the beds and bedding. The rocking chairs on the second story porch are a nice touch. It is very obvious that the house is well cared for. The people seem to love working there and take a lot of pride in the house. If you have never been to Apalachicola, I highly recommend it. It's a great little town.

Room Tip: Don't shy away from staying in the villa if the mansion rooms are booked.
