New member and first time posting! *gulp*
I'm planning a short trip to Florida next January, because there is *no* sunshine in Kentucky in January. (None.)
I'm interested in staying at a Bed and Breakfast in the Panhandle or North Central Florida to try and take advantage on low season prices.
I'm looking for sunshine, fresh air, quiet, sunshine and lots of nature.
Two places sound promising: Wakulla Springs State Park Lodge and The Old Carrabelle Hotel in Carrabelle Fl. Has anyone been there or have any scuttlebutt to share?
Hwesta, VT member Pete Chamlis (pchamlis) has a really nice page on Wakulla Springs. Here's the link: [original VT link]
Don't know about Carrabelle (& I don't see any pages for it yet), but I'll bet Pete has been there too, so why not try dropping him an email?
Another useful tool many of us consult regularly about hotels, inns & B&B's is TripAdvisor.com - they have ratings for many places, & reviews written by visitors. Some reviews you have to take with a grain of salt since not everyone uses the same criteria to judge a place, but overall it's a great site with lots of helpful info.
Catalysta - Thanks for the quick (and very encouraging)response! I think I am going to like this place! I will check out the link you mentioned.
DonnaFL - You are making me feel very welcome with such an immediate reply. Getting on-the-spot honest opinions is so much more helpful than polite guidebook descriptions.
That's what VT's about! BTW, do feel free to email Pete for more specifics, he's a VT regular & a great guy.
