    The Cape San Blas Inn is the perfect getaway to enjoy sunbathing, fishing, kayaking / canoeing / stand up paddle boarding, bird watching and horseback riding.

Graced by the natural beauty of this yet-unspoiled part of Florida's Gulf coast, our Inn can be enjoyed year-round with equal enthusiasm. Come stay, relax and experience everything this unique locale has to offer.

    The inn is situated 50 miles east of Panama City and 25 miles west of Apalachicola. The nearby St. Joseph Peninusla State Park features beaches with snow-white sand, 30-40 foot dunes, and aquarium clear waters.

    The Inn features seven guestrooms; each with a private bath and each distinctively decorated. Some of the special features include Sleep Number king-size beds (in 4 rooms), televisions, phones, refrigerators, and private decks (in 2 rooms).

    Comfortable Guest Rooms



    The atmosphere in the common areas of the Inn is one of relaxation. Inside, couches and easy chairs invite good conversation or quiet reading by the fireplace. Outside, the large back porch provides ample seating for enjoying views of the bay in all four seasons.





    The Area

    The backyard has a boardwalk down to a dock that provides easy access to St. Joseph Bay, ideal for canoeing, fishing, bird watching or sunbathing. A short walk across the street takes you to the beach and the beautiful Gulf of Mexico. Collect seashells along the dunes, watch for playful dolphin in the water, and enjoy the spectacular sunsets appearing nightly in this unique location.
