About

FREE Beach Gear! Guests of this home will enjoy a complimentary beach gear credit toward items such as bicycles, kayaks, beach umbrellas and more!

This 3BR/2.5BA beach cottage provides a quiet getaway from the hustle and bustle of everyday living. Set within the naturally preserved setting of the St. George Plantation, ‘Deacon Blues’ can be found amongst the palms and pines near the Apalachicola Bay.

Boasting an open living space with high ceilings, the living room has a large, Smart TV and a gas fireplace for chilly nights. This space also opens onto an expansive screened porch that runs the length of the house and offers a great spot for watching the sunset. The porch has a nice view of the Bay and is a perfect place to relax. The nearby dining table seats up to 6 with additional seating for 4 at the kitchen bar. A well-equipped kitchen with stainless steel appliances and plenty of counterspace make cooking at home easy and convenient. Just past the kitchen is a sizable pantry with full size washer/dryer, and a ½ bath can be found between the living and dining areas.

You may find most of your time spent on the large, furnished and screened-in porch with ceiling fans and views of the Apalachicola Bay featuring spectacular sunsets. This space offers plenty of room to lounge, enjoy a card game or even an evening meal. Just outside of the screened-in porch is a covered grilling area with gas grill, sink and a sundeck also with Bay views.

The first of two downstairs bedrooms holds a Queen-size bed and daybed while the second bedroom offers a Queen-size bed and access to the spacious screened-in porch. A full bathroom with tub/shower separates these two bedrooms and each has their own Smart TV.

The entrance of the upstairs master bedroom takes you thru a well-lit master bathroom with abundant counterspace and a large shower stall with both a fixed and hand-held showerhead. The master bedroom has a King-size bed, large screen Smart TV, convenient workspace desk and mini-fridge as well as a private balcony with views of the Apalachicola Bay.

Outdoor amenities include an enclosed hot/cold outdoor shower, fish cleaning sink and covered carport.

The walk to the beach is a leisurely 6-8 minutes to a nearby community beach boardwalk or you may prefer to bring/rent bicycles and enjoy a quick bicycle ride to the beach. And don't forget Deacon! We allow up to 2 medium size dogs with advance approval for a $75 + tax fee each.

As guests staying inside the St. George Plantation, you can enjoy miles of bike paths, walking trails and access to fishing at Bob Sike’s Cut. The nearby St. George Plantation Clubhouse offers a community lap pool, fitness center and tennis/pickleball court. A second community pool and tennis/pickleball court are also available for use.

This property is a gem! The rental company was very easy to deal with and very professional, going above and beyond to rescue us when we locked ourselves out at 12:45 AM. It's a short, easy, walk to the beach from the house. The house itself was clean and perfect for our needs. We would definitely stay again.

we booked Deacon Blues to enjoy our first SGI stay and to take advantage of parental leave with our new infant and our toddler. the house was even larger than we necessarily needed, but pretty well suited to our needs. Forgotten Shores was attentive to our needs during our stay (3 am smoke detector going off...), i would book with them again.

Excellent location and beautiful home. Definitely would recommend for a group (we had three couples). Absolutely loved the outdoor kitchen and comfortable beds. It was very buggy - but that is to be expected. Just be sure to prepare for it. Also, we only had one bath towel per guest for the week, so consider bringing extras. Overall a fantastic trip in a great spot!

The best rental we’ve ever experienced. We felt at home in this beautiful home. Plenty of privacy and peace and quiet. Just what we were looking for.
Jamie at forgotten shores was very responsive and helpful.
Great places to eat too.

Beautiful Home, Awesome sunsets, excellent Grill, fantastic screened in porch and Master Suite. Beds are great. Water pressure great in showers. Poor essential provisions. It was definitely a downer to have to go get Toilet paper, paper towels, plastic
wrap, Kleenex, and garbage bags. Didn't expect that
for such a nice place.

Great stay at Deacon Blues. The views from the screened in balcony were awesome along with the grill area and wonderful great room and kitchen area. Deacon Blues is in a wonderful wooded location close to the bay and the beach.

My sister and I stayed at Deacon Blues for the entire month of February 2021. What a great experience! The house was perfect and the location is very private. I would highly recommend this house to anyone and I would definitely stay again myself.

We enjoyed our stay at Deacon Blues. The house is beautiful inside and out. The unique antique furnishings and framed photographs of fishermen from years ago were especially nice. It was very relaxing to be secluded among the trees with a view of the Bay from the back deck with the wicker furniture. We saw a Great Horned Owl, an Ibis and other birds from the deck. The beach was beautiful, not crowded and is just a short distance. We will be back to Deacon Blues.

Excellent vacation rental. Very clean upon arrival. Great location, secluded with fantastic bay views. We saw owls from the master balcony and the sunset views were fantastic. House had all supplies you would ever need and all TVs were smart which was great to use Netflix etc. Seven minute walk to the beach, but on a quiet street.

Jamie was fantastic to work with; we would gladly come back to Deacon Blues again and use Forgotten Shores Properties again.

For those wanting the short version? Book this house you won’t be disappointed.

My wife and I managed to get a few day’s free to take a quick trip for our anniversary. But being last minute and some areas of Fla and Alabama still closed from the recent hurricane, availability was a little tighter than expected.
Found a place booked on line. I thought we were ready to go but the day before we were to leave we got a call from the property manager saying that the house was uninhabitable due to flooding of the septic system so I had to start all over.
Was annoyed by the ridiculous never ending fees the big sites charge so I have made it a practice to look for local management companies. Found forgotten shores property management and spoke to Jamie R. She was very professional knowledgeable and very helpful. She handled everything quickly and the rental the property and overall experience were among the best we ever had. The house was the nicest pet friendly property we have been to. Better than the pics and that’s saying something. Great layout very well setup. Highly recommend forgotten shores and Deacon Blue vacation home.

We really enjoyed this beautiful home and the screened in porch was our favorite place. Great open floorplan concept to watch the sunsets over the bay. We were even able to bring our boat and it fit in driveway. We will be back for sure.

Private,Peaceful Setting! A Perfect Place to Get Away!

My family and I just had the pleasure of staying at this this wonderful St. George Island Plantation home and we highly recommend it! There is not a more perfect place to go to get away and relax than St. George Island Plantation. We all loved the completely private, peaceful setting surrounded by trees, along with a beautiful view overlooking the bay. With a short walk to the beach and a serene and relaxing environment when you get back to this beautiful house, it is truly the best of both worlds! Not only did we enjoy the beautiful sandy white beaches, we also enjoyed biking, walking and running along the tree lined trails and I enjoyed being able to exercise in the swimming pool with lap lanes while my grandchildren enjoyed swimming in the open area. There is even a fitness center, pickle ball and tennis courts for those who want to enjoy other activities. Just a short drive from the island is the quaint town of Apalachicola, with great fresh seafood restaurants, and fun stores to shop in. Great memories were made and we look forward to our next trip back to St. George Island and this wonderful Deacon Blues home!
