About Karen Hoff
Although a native of Michigan, I spent the last 30 years in New Jersey where my husband and I have restored an 1850s Victorian and raised 2 sons who currently reside in Atlanta.. After retiring from a 30 year banking career as a Commercial Lending Officer, I came to Apalachicola for a vacation and fell in love with the quaint unpretentious aura of the town. As a history buff, the area presents opportunities to explore museums and historic homes. My favorite is the Historic Homes Tour which is sponsored by Trinity Episcopal Church during the first weekend in May. Although I have spent years enjoying the Atlantic Ocean in New Jersey, the beaches on St. George Island are ranked #3 in the country and only a 15 minute drive away. On St George Island, I have experienced the white sandy beaches of the Florida panhandle and taken a tour of the St George lighthouse with spectacular views from the top. On the island, the State Park offers an opportunity to enjoy either the Apalachicola Bay or the Gulf of Mexico and has limited crowds, plenty of parking and very clean facilities.
Karen Hoff purchased this House Boat in 2013
Why Karen Hoff chose Apalachicola
The interior living/dining area is fully surrounded by windows to allow viewing the sights from the comfort of your home. Downtown Apalachicola with its shops, art galleries and restaurants are just a short walk away so there is no need to use your car to enjoy the town's charm.
What makes this House Boat unique
Being directly on the water and moored at the end of the dock, the General Lee is in a prime location to enjoy panoramic views of both sunrises and sunsets, the full moon reflecting off the water and an unobstructed view of a wide variety of water activity.

We truly enjoyed our stay on the General Lee and the surrounding area.
Beautiful and Serene
We rented the General Lee for a sisters long weekend. Karen met us at the boat and showed us around - she was very nice and made some great recommendations for food. It was a fun experience and we look forward to renting the General Lee again!
Relaxing Water Views
My husband and two daughters took a midweek trip to the Forgotten Coast. We were thrilled with the houseboat. Karen was a great host. The water was mesmerizing in every direction. Our daughters had fun fishing and walking all over the quaint town. We enjoyed relaxing on the decks and porches. Karen’s boat was perfect for our little vacation.
I am so glad that you and your family had a great time. Thank you for choosing to stay aboard the General Lee. I hope to see you all again. Karen
We stayed in the cutest houseboat. It was clean and comfortable. Karen was great. Loved it.
We enjoyed the views and the town very much
We enjoyed our week at the General Lee. It is so peaceful being on the water with beautiful views all around. The wild life is wonderful entertainment from the upper and lower screened deck. Our host was courteous and respectful and on hand to help if needed. We had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. The location is wonderful as you can walk to some of the best seafood you will ever eat. We would love to come back next year.
I am so glad that you had a relaxing and enjoyable vacation. I hope that I see you again. Thank you for choosing to stay aboard the General Lee. Karen
Apalachicola is best known as the oyster capital of the United States with the best fishing areas in Northwest Florida. The town has an active artist community, art galleries and antique shops. The restaurants serve some of the freshest seafood that you will ever have which has been caught by the local commercial fishermen.
