Once the 19th century residence of Captain Witherspoon, this historic hideaway offers comfortable furnishings and casual elegance in its guest rooms and all of the rooms have private baths. A full breakfast is included.
The overall setting of the Witherspoon Inn was perfect. Porch with comfortable rocking chairs, shaded by a grand old tree. You can feel the history of the inn as soon as you pull into the drive. The inn keeper, Sandy, is your mother, your sister, your best friend all wrapped up into one person. A beautiful character, both inside and out, willing to share not only a bit of the Witherspoon's history - but a bit of her own as well. Local characters are brought to life in her versions of the stories... giving you a beautiful vision of Apalachicola. She sets you on the right path on the places to see and visit in the quaint town. And she bakes the most delicious baked goods and leaves them like an angel at your door for you to discover.
We would highly recommend a stay at the Withersoon Inn. We will definitely return to rock in the chairs on the grand old porch again very soon!
Our stay at the Witherspoon Inn was a very special and enjoyable unique experience. The Inn is charming and comfortable as well as historic and is convenient to all of Apalachicola's attractions and facilities.
Owner "Sandy" Lauper is a cordial and fascinating hostess who is a fount of information on the history.attractions and events of the city. Her baked treats made our stay enen more enjoyable. We plan to visit again and recommend the Witherspoon to our friends.

Lovely home and hostess!. Very good accommodations even in the single room. Quality bedding, towels, etc. The pumpkin bread was absolutely delicious. Would love to have the recipe! Wide selection of refreshments in the common area. Thanks for a great evening.
