About Lynn Smith Johnson

We live in John Creek Georgia, a suburb of North Atlanta. We love St George Island and Apalachicola-It is not like Destin, but we find so many fun things to do-usually a week is not enough for us! But we have to plan early because OUR Wonderful Guests always beat us to the punch! We enjoy our guests, they become our friends and many of you stay in touch. Give us a try, we hope you fall in love with the Forgotten Coast, the people, and the beautiful surroundings.

Lynn Smith Johnson purchased this house in 2010

Why Lynn Smith Johnson chose St George Island

Growing up on the Georgia coast, a beach town was not a place with resorts and high rise condos. It was a place where you could hop on your bike and not worry about traffic. We spent many years exploring coastal towns from Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, and even California. Our current home is in the Metro Atlanta area, we were looking for a quiet place to get away. The late Celestine Sibley, a long time Writer for the Atlanta Journal Constitution, on occasion would write of her Travels to her 2nd Home on Dog Island, in the Gulf of Mexico. Her writings intrigued us and that is how we found The Forgotten Coast. Finally a place to getaway, to leave your worries behind, and at one time, a place where our cell phones could not get a signal. How great was that!

What makes this house unique

Beautiful, Quiet Beaches. Nature abounds. Get out and take day trips to surrounding areas and small towns. Fish, cook fresh seafood, take a walk or a bike ride on the islands paved bike path. Climb the Cape St George Lighthouse and others in the surrounding area. Visit the Park on the far east end of the island for seashells, fishing, or a picnic. Best restaurants are in Apalachicola. But a trip to the Indian Pass Raw Bar MUST be scheduled in-

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is our 2nd time at your home. We love it. My grandchildren had a blast in the pool. The rain was heavy at times but the house was comfortable and we enjoyed the TVs. Thank you both, and we will return.

All the Best, Teresa and Eric-Cumming GA

We hadn't been to St. George Island for 20 years...

We hadn't been to St. George Island for 20 years...
  • 5 of 5
We hadn't been to St. George Island for 20 years; and what I remembered most about that trip was sitting on an empty beach and watching dolphins play in the surf. We again had an opportunity to return to St. George Island, this time with our 2 1/2 year old son. The first day we walked out onto an empty beach, and again saw dolphins playing in the surf. It was wonderful and relaxing, and it seemed as though this part of Florida hadn't changed much at all.

The Little Palm beach house was a big part of what made our trip special. The house was beautifully decorated, but in a very comfortable way. And there were little labels in some key places to help guests remember how to take care of the house (e.g., "No grease down the drain, this is a septic", and "This door needs an extra push" on the French double-door refrigerator, and "Turn off the lights at night for the sea turtles"). It made us smile. The open floor plan also helped us keep tabs on our little one, and gave us a great view of the beach from the porch.

I'm sure there is a load of stuff to do on St. George... but all we did was enjoy the beach and cook in. If you're looking to just hang out at the beach, and return to a comfortable, well-appointed home in the evening to cook dinner and share stories, Little Palm is a great option.

Wonderdul memories

  • 5 of 5
My family has vacationed in this home two years in a row now. My children refer to it as "our beach house". We love the very short walk to the beach, clean house and beautiful pool. The view from the porch has made many memories of building legos, eating breakfast and reading. Lynne is always very informative and helpful! Thank you for the wonderful memories!

The Perfect Beachhouse

  • 5 of 5
Thanks for another wonderful vacation at Little Palm! Our family had a great time with excellent weather and your home is the perfect spot to enjoy St. George. It is so very comfortable and it had everything we needed. We enjoyed our quick walk to the beach each day and the comfort of having a beautiful pool to come back to in the late afternoon. Our family was so happy at Little Palm and we are very selective about our vacation spots. We give Little Palm our highest recommendation!

My wife and I truly enjoy staying at the Little Palm. We find our time there to be very relaxing and peaceful. We find that sitting on the porch in the late afternoon and early morning to be the best part of the day. The dolphin are passing by and the the dove are cooing and we can just sit and totally relax. The house has everything you need for a great stay and with the full kitchen we find that boiling some fresh shrimp with a great bottle of wine to be better than dinning out. We enjoy the beach in the middle of the day and the pool at cocktail hour. The house is not the Ritz Carlton but that is not what we are looking for when stay here. It's nice to have a place that is genuine and not snobbish. We have stayed there for numerous years and i must say that the house and it's furniture are showing some wear and could use some refurbishing. Hopefully that will be completed before our next stay.

Reviewed on 06/18/2010 for a stay on 06/01/2010

Little Palm has to be one of the best equipped homes I have stayed in on St. George Island. Everything worked! All the steps in and out was our only issue. We have 3 miniature dachshunds and they all had to be carried in and out. But I knew this when we made our reservations. The bedroom arrangement was perfect. The teenagers were never heard from the other bedrooms at night. I would recommend this home to anyone with older children. But this is not a home for anyone over 60 unless they are in absolute perfect physical condition.

Wonderful place to relax!

  • 5 of 5
We took a family vacation and stayed at Little Palm for a week. It was the best beach rental we have ever stayed in. The home was really a home...all the finishing touches to make you feel welcome. We love to cook and the kitchen had everything we needed to make our meals, plus some. The pool was great for relaxing. You can hear the waves from the relaxing rockers on the porch...it was fantastic to sit out there every night after dinner. Overall, it was a super clean home away from home. We have already booked our next trip there.

No high rise multifamily buildings to block your views, No traffic jams. Truly a place to get away from it all. Various festivals throughout the year, St. George Island and Apalachicola have year round interests. The National Trust for Historic Preservation named Apalachicola as a Distinctive Destination. Beautiful Historic Homes and a true working waterfront are the reasons for this designation. Great Restaurants, Interesting Gift Shops and Art Galleries will keep you busy. Activities for all ages-Camps, Eco Tours, Kayaking, Deep or Bay Fishing, or just read a good book. Lots of small towns for day trips or visit any of the nearby State or National Parks. Excellent restaurants-Owl Cafe, Tamara's, That Place on In Apalach, Magnolia Grill, The Grill, Papa Joe's, Boss Oyster,

Verandas, Cafe Leche, BJs Pizza & Subs, The Blue Parrot(beachfront), The Hut, The Indian Pass Raw Bar....
