The historic Bowery Inn Building circa 1900, sat 40 years vacant and then most recently was home to a General Mercantile Business with a room and living quarters upstairs, has returned to its roots with a remarkable renovation completed in 2015. The structure exudes rustic charm from salvaged and reclaimed building material from Apalachicola. Each piece of wood and decor was hand selected and strategically placed to preserve the look and feel of the space as lived in and enjoyed by the generations that came before us.
Guests are able to enjoy a genuine "old fashioned" experience without the distractions of televisions or telephones, while being fully WiFi accessible. Viewing of the Apalachicola Bay and the downtown area can be enjoyed from over 1000 square feet of covered deck. A small, open-aired viewing deck above the second floor overlooking the Apalachicola River/Bay is excellent for morning coffee, evening drinks or yoga. The Inn is quietly nestled in the historic downtown Bowery District within walking distance of all shopping and nationally recognized restaurants.
The Bowery Inn is a self-catering facility without a permanent on-site operator. The common area of the Inn is for our guest's convenience with a refrigerator and sitting area. A Keurig coffee station and plenty of bottled water and ice are provided. Please respect the quiet times in the common area and outside decks, the building is authentic with little sound insulation. The beautifully hand-crafted stairwell is the only access to the upstairs Inn. With no elevator, unfortunately we are not ADA accessible. Check-in time is 4PM and check-out is 11AM.
There are 4 rooms available for rent: Details for individual rooms will be provided on a separate page for each room.
Whether this is your first time in Apalachicola or you’ve come back year after year, one thing is certain, you want to experience the best vacation possible and go home with lasting memories. At Riverwood Suites it isn’t just a room, it’s an experience. Picture it: You drive up to the Historic Baltimore House located in downtown Apalach. At first you think, “Is this the right place?” The rustic exterior may take you by surprise. But as you walk through iron gate you realize that this is definitely the right place. You go up the stairs and enter your suite. The cool air is a relief from the Florida heat. A cold drink would be great right about now and then you notice the full size refrigerator and a freezer with ice that is all ready for you. It’s been a long trip and the California King bed is calling your name. The rustic chic décor makes you feel right at home, a home you only wish was yours. Before you hit the hay, you grab a glass from the kitchenette and pop open a bottle of red wine. You relax on the veranda and sip your drink while looking out over downtown. You sleep better than you’ve ever slept before and wonder where we got these sheets. The morning comes and you enjoy a freshly brewed cup of joe from the Keurig coffee maker. You relax in the back garden while you wait for your massage and haircut at the on-site Aveda salon. Later you stroll down to the unique shops, restaurants, and nightlife just block or two away. And when your trip has come to its end and you’re packing your bags you think to yourself, “Wow, this was the best vacation I’ve ever had.”
