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.

Remote natural old Florida. Relax or enjoy a trip on the river. So much wildlife to see on the river. This was my second stay. Canoe or kayak outfitter who delivers, less than a mile away ( by water). Easy to reserve check in and out. This is a great place to unwind.

Outstanding Stay on the Wacissa River
Outstanding Stay on the Wacissa River
We decided to cancel our rooms at the Double Tree downtown Tallahassee for the World University Games Springboard/Platform Diving Trials. We found the "Off Grid" cabin online and decided it would be a better place to unwind after each day's competition. Our expectations were greatly exceeded for the stay in ease of commute to Tallahasse, the beauty of the Cabin and the river and the community of people that live around the river. The reclaimed Cypress and Pine that the cabin is constructed of is beautiful. The Wacissa River is awesome. Beautiful, serene, incredible wildlife, clear water and wonderful people. While we were there, we were offered 3 airboat rides, welcomed on the river, invited over to hang out one evening at a river house, and offered kayaks to use to on our last day on the river. I can see why people never move away from this area. This cabin and the large property it sits on is so peaceful and relaxing. We throughouly enjoyed our stay. This is a hidden gem.
