A Grayton Tradition’ "The Washaway" is a historic beach house and a local treasure located in the heart of Grayton Beach. Built in the late 1800's by Capt. Gray and later used as the Coast Guard Headquarters for a cavalry unit during WWII, this home survived a major hurricane in 1926 (but was almost washed away), as well as standing strong during Hurricane Eloise in the late 1970's, and Hurricane Opal in the fall of 1995. It is a Grayton classic and centrally located just ½ block west of the famous Red Bar Restaurant, as well as numerous other dining and shopping amenities nearby.
Relax on wide, wraparound porches while enjoying gulf breezes and breath-taking views of the Gulf of Mexico and Western Lake. Located directly on the sugar sand, just one house off the beach, step back in time with the unique turn of the century floor plan that adds to the timeless appeal of Grayton's oldest home. An eight foot breezeway separates the kitchen and bathrooms from the core of the house, where the main living space is located giving this home a unique floor plan.

Great Location
Awesome location and cool old house. Traffic on the beach access road is a little annoying with vehicles getting stuck in the sand over and over, but the wrap around porches with sweet beach views and cool ocean breezes just can't be beat. Wonderful vacation week!
A Grayton Tradition
Our family just returned from our fourth year at A Grayton Tradition. We have already made reservations for next year. We love this great big old house. The wrap-around porches on both levels at all times have someone rocking, reading, visiting, and enjoying the view. Everytime you open the door to the cute compact kitchen you run into a different group, snacking, visiting and cutting up. The kitchen is always well-equipped and very convenient to the very large dining room, which we have enjoyed having everybody at sit-down meals. We like the very short walk to the beautiful beach and also enjoy the two restaurants and shops just across the street
The past two years we've had 16 family members, so have rented another smaller house to accommodate the overflow.
We will be counting the days until it's time to return to A Grayton Tradition.
wonderful vacation
We have stayed in several different houses over the past 15 years and this house was my favorite by far. The location is fantastic! We spent may nights in the rocking chairs and hammock enjoying our surroundings. The house and the d├ęcor is absolutely beautiful. We have never stayed in the same beach house but I will have to say I would love to stay here again. I fell in the love with this house and can not say enough good things about it. Thank you very much for a wonderful vacation!
Grayton Traditions
We had a wonderful stay at Grayton Tradtions!! We loved the history behind the house lots of charm. Great location. Absolutely would book again.
A great vacation experience, in a historic beachfront house.
This historic beachfront house is situated in a perfect location. It is about 100 yards from the beach, right down the street from the Red Bar, and less than ten minutes from beautiful Watercolor and Seaside. We had twelve people staying in the house, and everyone was completely comfortable. Everyone enjoyed the views from the wrap-around porches. We are already planning to do it all again next year!

Manager Comments
Thank you for your kind words, Mark. We are glad your family enjoyed their stay and look forward to welcoming you again.
