Hurricane Michael Update

January 2019 UPDATE

     Happy New Year - we hope everyone is off to a good start in 2019.  We are making good progress on our repairs and improvements thanks to the help of contractors, friends and family members.  Currently we are projecting to re-open our bed & breakfast beachfront building in the early spring season.  While we don't have a firm date set at this time, early to middle March is our goal.  The Turtle Tower should also be fully repaired and back on the grid by early March assuming all goes as planned.  The Sand Dollar Cottage repairs are a bit more extensive, but still very manageable so we should have a better idea of rental availability on this popular cottage within the next few weeks.  Thanks again for checking in, and please call or email us anytime if we can answer questions or help with a reservation.  Take care - we'll look forward to seeing you back on the beach very soon!

First and foremost, we would like to thank all of you who have reached out with such kind thoughts, concerns, prayers and well wishes.  It means so much to our entire family that we have made so many dear friends through the Turtle Beach Inn & Cottages over the 21 years that we have been in business on Indian Pass.  Hurricane Michael did cause extensive damage to Indian Pass, and the Turtle Beach Inn & Cottages were certainly no exception.  We are, however, incredibly fortunate and blessed to still have standing structures and homes to live in, as many of our friends and neighbors to the west have lost everything.  We will be closed for at least a couple of months, maybe more, as we continue to work on storm recovery, repairs and rebuilding projects to our property.  The beachfront bed & breakfast building fared pretty well considering the 12-14' storm surge and 120 MPH winds we experienced on October 10th.  We lost everything on the ground-level breakaway structure, lots of deck/porch damage, a few broken windows, and lots of trees down and storm debris everywhere.  The Sand Dollar Cottage unfortunately was flooded, as we are in the process of gutting the first floor, and will work on rebuilding ASAP.  The Turtle Tower building also fared pretty well being on higher pilings, as all the ground-level storage/laundry area washed away, and some porch and decking damage as well.  Thanks to the efforts of local contractors and utility providers, we do have water and power mostly restored on Indian Pass, and progress is being made every day.  The cleanup and rebuilding efforts will be extensive in our county, but we will recover from this, and all be stronger as a result.  Thanks again for all the love and support.  We'll continue to update our website accordingly, as we are hoping to have a better idea of re-opening and availability dates within the next month or two.
