Winchester Cottage was built as a wedding gift in 1933. It now sits under the canopy of 2 old oaks, on our main street but several blocks away from the main intersection at the harbor. It has 3 bedrooms, one bath (between 2 bedrooms), and is fully furnished and supplied with some bath and kitchen items. Compact yet roomy, doorways and walls have been widened and remodeled for openness and to create a light and airy feel
Construction is tongue-and-groove pine, used for floors, walls and ceilings. The house sits up 2 easy steps, so that it is well-ventilated underneath. The large, breezy front porch runs the full width of the house and can seat a crowd for relaxing reading or socializing. Screen doors fore and aft allow nice air circulation in the temperate months if you prefer fresh air instead of AC, and an outdoor area with patio, deck and gas grill are ready for use
Like to stroll for a little rejuvenation? The best walk in town starts right at the cottage. It's a "5K" for you serious walker/joggers, including sidewalks, harbor boardwalks and a shoreline drive. You go out for half the distance, then just return the same way, so you can make it as long or short as you want
How about a driving tour? Carrabelle is at the heart of the Big Bend Scenic Byway, and the Cottage has a great brochure with all the info you might need. Whether coastal or forest, there are natural and historic/cultural things to see all day long!
