Tallahassee cottage description

Country charm is the feel of this delightful cottage that is in the city but feels like country. This cottage called 'Mulberry' is tastefully and comfortably decorated to give it a casual country feel. Along with its sister cottage 'Maple' (vrbo #162157), and Magnolia (vrbo #323881), this cozy guest cottage, surrounded by forest, is on the north side of Tallahassee on the beautifully Canopied Meridian Rd adjacent to Alfred B MaClay State Park and Lake Overstreet Trails. Across the street is Forest Meadows Athletic centre with Tennis courts and swimming pool (open summers). Enjoy the melody of birds, crickets and cicadas throughout the day and see the deer in the morning and evening from the back porches furnished for a perfect meal in the fresh air.

Tallahassee is the State Capital of Florida and has the downtown Capital Buildings just 7 miles away, as well as governor's's mansion, museums, and Imax theatres. Shopping and airport close by. Antique shopping is available in the quaint towns of Havana, Monticello, and Quincy(20-30 mile drive).

Check out the beautiful southern plantations on the way to Thomasville, Georgia only 30 miles away. Just 20 miles to Wakulla Springs State Park and 60 miles from the beautiful beaches of the Gulf of Mexico. Lake Jackson is just 3 miles away.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2006

              About the owner: The owner has an interesting story in that she was born in the Netherlands, grew up in Canada and has lived in Tallahassee for the last 35 years where her children grew up. The Dutch background spells the importance of cleanliness; the Canadian background spells the gift of hospitality; and the south spells relaxed and casual. So the 3 C's: cleanliness, comfortable and cozy best describes what you will find in each of the 3 M's: Mulberry, Magnolia and Maple cottages. The owner has made lots of good memories on this 3 acre property. We stay here to celebrate various holidays with our 10 grandchildren. The space outside has room for outdoor games and cookouts and the cottages are comfortable and cozy. We have been privileged to travel and spend many months away from home and feel we know from experience what will make a guesthouse comfortable.

              Why the Owner Chose Tallahassee:
              This property is in the beautiful north side of Tallahassee surrounded by almost 1000 acres of forest with hiking trails. There are 3 cottages together on this 3 acres which make it convenient for large groups such as weddings and family reunions. This property provides a place for me to enjoy my gardening hobby. I have planted many flowers, shrubs, fruit trees so that there is something blooming and something to eat year round. During the winter the oranges are delicious and a great way to start the morning. In addition there are lemons, kumquats, figs, loquats, persimmons and even some blackberries and mulberries growing. The camellias are growing and will start flowering in December so there is plenty to see and enjoy.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              The large porch on this cottage is makes it a great place to gather or eat.
