Tallahassee cabin description

We would like to invite you to recharge in our one of a kind 'Off Grid' Cabin. This one of a kind property is located at the end of Maloy's Landing Road in Beautiful Wacissa, FL only 30 minutes from FSU and the perfect weekend game place hideaway. This 3 bedroom 1 1/2 bath cabin sleeps 8 comfortable in it's two bedrooms and huge loft. The cabin nestled on one of the beautiful springs that feed the Wacissa river surrounded by towering 80' White Oaks, pines and hundred year old Cypress trees. From the front porch you can view wildlife such as deer, raccoons, woodpeckers, blue herons, hummingbirds, cormorants and wild turkey. The cabin is constructed of 100+ year old river wood pulled from the Wacissa and it's tributaries. Some of the planks used in the walls are better than 20' wide, the handrail on the stairs to the loft is made from a civil war era bridge blank, and much of the structure has actual river wood trees from the foundation through the floor to the ceiling. The property is 'Off Grid' meaning there are no utilities coming in from the power company. We utilize solar panels, battery banks and a backup diesel generator to maintain power to the cabin 24/7. The cabin is equipped with central air, propane hot water and most of the other every day luxuries you would expect to find in a home that is 'On Grid'. So our invitation extends to anyone wanting to relax or even those wanting to celebrate a special occasion including FSU football games. You will be 1.5 miles from the closest house and 1 mile behind a locked gate so you can have the privacy to do whatever it is you wish to do. So come on out and experience true adventure in a one of a kind cabin.
