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.
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!
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-
