Property description

Enjoy a special moment on this waterfront island getaway. Perfect for family and friends gathering. Convenient to boating to the local springs and fishing galore or just chill-in out away from the hustle of urban life. With beautiful views of Lake George, enjoy a cup of coffee while watching a sunrise from the dock or an afternoon storm rolling in across the waters. As the evening sets in, the sounds of nature sing and the house illuminates with tranquility.

Once a bed and breakfast establishment named The Indigo Inn, the original house is one of the oldest on Drayton Island. Now a very comfortable vacation home with 5 bedrooms, 4 baths (two with claw foot tubs), living room, dining room, glorious screened porches upstairs and down, a very efficient kitchen with pantry, library/gallery, 3 central ac/heating units for zone control, outdoor BBQ and entertaining area with fire pit, dock, and much more.

Imagine yourself, family and friends enjoying your next getaway at The Indigo Inn. Or consider it your own fishing lodge or remote vacation home. For the writer, artist or musician it’s your retreat. For boaters, kayakers and naturalists there is the island/lake world to explore. An ideal retreat for meditation and creativity.

Take the opportunity to experience this secluded and private hideaway and create memories that will last a lifetime. In the Winter, bundled up and sit around the fire pit as the North winds chill the air, Spring brings out the fragrant blossoms of the jasmine vines that cluster along the back of the house and in the trees. The summer months get hot as the afternoon storms roll in but its perfect for heading to the springs to take cool dips in the crystal waters. As fall transitions begin, the shrimp start running in the river so bring your net and cast for supper, Night falls quickly as time changes in October and the holidays approach. A perfect place for have that nostalgic Thanksgiving or Christmas. By the New Year, you'll be unplugged and unwound from the hectic schedules from metropolis. In the woods, by the water, and the comfort of home; truly "Old Florida Living" will replenish your soul.

NOT EASY TO GET TO...BUT EASY TO SEE...WHY ITS HARD TO LEAVE!

Truly a throw back to old florida living. Mother nature can be humbling and also provide you with some speclacural surprises. Watch a storm rolling in from Lake George, deer grazing in the pasture or strolling up to the grove and house.

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1994

Why Georgetown, FL, USA:
The home of a writer and his wife, a sculptor, the indigo inn is a world apart from the noise and hustle of city life. We wanted to turn down the volume of our lives; cut the speed; release the pressure; breathe the fresh air that blows across the miles of water in lake George, and recharge our personal batteries. We loved the horses, dogs, cats and bird who shared the generous space with us. We enjoy the oranges, grapefruit, tangerines and pecans on the property. The indigo inn is an ideal retreat for meditation, recreation and creativity.
