The McKissack House is located in the heart of Carrabelle. A quaint fishing village on Florida's Forgotten Coast. Carrabelle is known for its fantastic fishing, wildlife, and easy pace of life. You are within walking distance to restaurants, bars, marinas/boat ramps, antique shops and art galleries. Carrabelle beach is just 2 miles, with good parking, shaded picnic facilities and bathrooms. Pristine white sand can be found along Dog Island minutes away by boat and St. George Island is minutes by boat or an easy 20 minutes by car. Historic Apalachicola is a short drive away down Hwy 98 featuring outstanding restaurants, theatre, and shopping.
The home was built circa 1900 and with its additions is one of the largest, most comfortable homes of its kind in the area. The home was completely updated in 2010 including Spanish tile throughout. There is 1750 sq feet of climate controlled area inside and 400 sq feet of screened porch to rock away a lazy afternoon outside. There is plenty of parking for your boat and trailer. The house is 1000 feet from the river and 4000 feet from the bay. Public boat ramps and parking are located within a few blocks.
Excellent grouper, snapper, mackerel, pompano, redfish, trout, sheepshead and flounder fishing await you in the river, bay or open waters of the Gulf. Charters are available at the many marinas. If golf is your sport, St. James Bay offers a challenging 18 hole course beautifully seated among the coastal marsh and flora. If you are one for nature, Tate's Hell State Park offers extensive walking/hiking trails, as well as kayaking.
