Year Purchased: 1985
About the owner: I have been recruiting in the Atlanta area for over thirty years. I love to travel and enjoy cooking , music and the arts. I love dogs and have two Jack Russel Terrorists who go everywhere with me.
Why the Owner Chose Bristol: My Father, an avid outdoorsman, bought this property in 1954 . He was awestruck by the crystal clear water of the lake and the great Bass fishing and hunting in the area . He was fascinated with the Aquifer in Florida and loved it's many prisitne lakes and springs. My Mother moved here full-time in the 70's and worked as a Nurse in the neighboring town of Blountstown. She is known throughout the area as 'Miss Bertha' and for calling out the fish : 'Here fishy- fishy ' . As a crowd of fish would gather, she fed them cracker mush with a baby bottle. They took it greedily. Yes, I have pictures. I am known as 'Miss Nina' , Miss Bertha's daughter.
The Unique Benefits at this House: I so enjoy being so close to so many natural attractions. Cape San Blas, St. George's Island, ST. Marks, Wakulla Springs, Florida State Caverns and Mexico Beach to name a few. The Apalachicola Oysters are world famous for a reason. It is a joy to catch fish from such pristine waters as Lake Mystic because you can eat what you catch with no worries about chemicals or other toxins. It is commonplace to have the magnificent Bald Eagles land in the pine trees right outside the screend porch and to wake to a four foot tall Great Blue Heron standing on the dock gazing down into the clear water at his next meal.
