Perfection
A gem in historic Apalachicola. This old guest house has been nicely updated to keep the original charm with modern updates. Convenient location and easy entry with a nice blast of cold air from an air conditioner that works like a champ. Mattresses were new and super comfortable. Enjoy the wraparound porch, rocking chairs and ambience of the entire place.

Great location! Clean and comfortable. The shared kitchen was a nice feature, with great parking options right next to the building. There are 4 units in the building and we were the only ones staying there at this time, so that was nice. Will definitely stay again!

Very interesting and delightful stay
Enjoyed our stay in the Sunshine Sojourn especially not having a tv, we never thought about the news or what was going on in the world. Just relaxing with the good people of Apalachicola and wondering the streets that my g-g grandfather did as a young man even spend time with him at the Chestnut Cemetery, just a very pleasant stay. Will stay again down the road. Thanks for the hospitality. Durward & Deborah

Convenient & Comfy Stay
Loved every moment of our stay and room. Very clean & well decorated. Bed was super comfy. We were a little weary from some other reviews of being able to hear everyone else staying in other rooms, but we did not experience this issue. Our stay was perfect for our weekend getaway. We will definitely be back!

Quirky but fine
A quirky but great large room with big bathroom. Took a few goes to get door open when arrived but worked it out. My only criticism applies to many US establishments and that is use of disposable plastic in the kitchen. Needed some bowls. Good location. Would recommend

The Bowery has unique charm! We truly enjoyed our stay! The bed was the most comfortable; I have ever slept on anywhere we have ever stayed! Very quiet and also a nice big porch to sit and rock! You cannot go wrong by staying here!

We loved our stay at the Bowery Inn. Everything was clean and comfortable. Very unique and interesting! We were the only room rented while we were there and think it may have been a bit noisy if there were others rented but will definitely come back for another stay to find out. We loved it!!

Beautifully restored interior. Easy access using digital locks. Winding staircase leads to hallway with four guest rooms. Cozy communal kitchen with coffee available. Huge comfy bed, crisp white linens and towels, hot shower in ample sized bathroom with antique vanity. Wrap around porch, with view of the river on one end. Fun to walk everywhere! Half mile walk to Scipio Creek Marina and Half Shell Dockside.

Great location!
Everything in the unit was as described. We chose this out of the 4 possible units in the building because it was set slightly off from the shared space. We really enjoyed the small upper deck for watching boats and later for some star-gazing (we recommend a new door handle on this access door) - and the coffee was a great touch. The location was perfect for us to walk to dinner, the water, and downtown.

We loved our stay! Spent time on the porch enjoying the view and the quiet. Everything was close but not so close. You could tell that the room was well taken care of. The community room had coffee, tea and a refrigerator to store your food. Walked to the restaurant nearby. Highly recommend staying here!

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: The Bowery Inn is a lovingly-restored old hotel in the historic district of Apalachicola, including antique furniture, vintage materials and period features. So if you want a window into the quiet town's past, this is it. There was a gusty thunderstorm just as we were going to bed, so we experienced the slashing rain on the veranda and old tin roof. Very nostalgic and romantic.
