About Lori High

We have been going to St. George Island since 1994. It is the second home we designed and built on the island. We have traveled to beaches all over the world and find this one to be the the widest, greatest sand with absolutely no crowds. We hate staying in junky rental homes and it is my commitment to you that we have the absolute best in the house. You will never be short of anything in the kitchen and when it gets 'used' we throw and buy new. We like the east end because it has far less bugs, no vegetation on the beach and is within a mile of the state park.

Lori High purchased this house in 2007

Why Lori High chose Florida

Beaches are the very best! We are 15 minutes from Apalachicola with unique shops and great restaurants. The island has terrific restaurants, biking and a state park that looks like it has never been touched.

What makes this house unique

Our house has it all! 7 bedrooms. Each bedroom with its own bath and each with TV for the night owls or when you just must get away. Beachside pool and a hot tub

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time with 15 people at Solitude. We didn'ave have the best weather but we made the best out of it! We evern named a new drink after the house "It was like being at the Ritz" We loved the pool ad hottb and caughter several nice sized flish. The kitchen allowed us to cook many means. We have never experience such small crowds on the bgeach. We felt like the beach was ours. We would all come back in the future. Thank you.

We rented the house for a beachfront wedding with our family. All of us stayed in the house and it was everything we had hoped for! The house was beyond beautiful and had our every need and want! I definitely recommend this house and island as a whole!!!

Margie & family. Cincinnati Ohio

  • 5 of 5

Our 3 generation family enjoyed a week at Solitude. The house and location were fabulous. The photos accurately represent the house. It was clean and the beach views were fabulous. We all had a great time including our annual corn hole tournament and visiting with each other, playing games into the night, cooking family favorites. The only disappointment were the fold-out sofa beds (broken & lumpy). We used the loft on the 4th floor.

Owner's Response: Thank you ! Happy the home provided your family with such a great week. We are aware of the issues with the hide a beds and have new "innards". We are replacing as soon as the 2014 season is finished and we can get in the house and do all of our end of season maintenance. Our management company is supposed to offer roll always until we can get it fixed. Sorry that did not happen. Lori.

Most Fantastic Visit Ever To SGI

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had the privilege, along with 11 of our closest friends, to spend a week at "Solidude". Everything posted on the home's website was as described and, in fact, even better. It is so obvious that our host's plan everything down to the smallest detail. We had some other members of our fishing club join us for an evening meal of pompano and fantastic side dishes, and the home easily accommodated the entire group. I cannot say enough about the wonderful furnishings, outstanding beach decor, and every possible tool for cooking. In addition, the downstairs hot/cold shower, hot tub, and pool (we did not heat) were enjoyed by all. Since we were there for the annual pompano run, the fish cleaning station and kayaks were just a bonus. The home, although very upscale, was extremely "beachy" and comfortably arranged for various activities. The furniture on the decks were absolutely outstanding and a number of our group have inquired about where to find the source of the furnishings. The elevator is definitely a nice touch and sure helps beat "humping" the myriad boxes and coolers of food and clothing that was brought. We loved this home so much, that we booked our week for next year two days before our trip ended. This home, and the most wonderful hosts ever, will provide you with a vacation you will never forget!

Perfect week at a perfect house

  • 5 of 5

We rented this beautiful house as a place for family to stay during my sons wedding at Sunset Beach. The house is set up for entertaining and we had a rehearsal dinner for the family in the area below the house. The 2 ovens, 2 refrigerators and large pantry room supplied ample room for all the food preparation. The week was so busy, I did not have a chance to sample the beautiful pool and hot tub but that can be next time as we will be back. Thank you for the wonderful week!

Awesome Beach House!

  • 5 of 5

This house is by far the nicest home we have ever rented! It is luxurious, beautifully decorated, fully equipted, and on one of the best beaches in the US. We had group of 16 and it accomodated us with ease. We fished (with great sucess), swam, played volleyball, relaxed, and just had a great beach vacation. If we come back to SGI, we will rent Solitude again! The only negative was that the grill is in sad shape and needs to be replaced.
