Tallahassee house description

This lake house has been in our family for over 40 years.

Jan and I did some renovation in 2006. It is a rustic house with boat dock overlooking beautiful Lake Talquin. The house is setup to for the enjoyment of a family gathering or for a group of fishermen. You may enjoy, as we do in our house next door, the beautiful sunsets in the afternoon. If you care to water ski our location is on the deep end of the lake with the lake dam in view.

You may see more detail by going to our website.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2004

                          About the owner: We built our dream house and now retirement home 2 lots over from the rental house. We love living on Lake Talquin and consider ourselves blessed everyday. Now retired, we enjoy this wonderful lake everyday.

                          Why the Owner Chose Tallahassee:
                          Jan grew up coming to Lake Talquin on weekends and holidays with her parents and 3 brothers. Her parents bought the property in the 50's. At their death we bought the house and property and have set it up for rental in hopes that others may enjoy it as much as her family.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          The house is on one lot with an extra lot adjoining. This gives a total of 200' of waterfront. facing the west we enjoy the beautiful sunsets in the afternoon. Lake Talquin has long been known for it bass, crappie, and bream fishing. With eight bunk beds, 1 Queen, 1 regular beds, and a king bed in the master bedroom the house is great for family gatherings or fishing groups.
