About the Property
Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5-7)
There are many recreational opportunities abundantly throughout Florida's Forgotten Coast, known as the 'sportsman's paradise', including Salt & Fresh water fishing, hiking, bicycling, hunting and canoeing. Also, convenient access to the Gulf of Mexico is just minutes away in St. Marks.
No matter what your taste may be, whether it's flats fishing for trout, red fish, tarpon, or Spanish mackerel, or just a few miles out some of the finest grouper fishing in the Gulf of mexico, this is truly an angler's paradise, with every salt water activity you care to do, such as snorkeling for scallops, scuba diving to see some of the most beautiful natural reefs, or just a lazy day with the family at the coast.
We have plenty of room for boaters to bring their boats to the Retreat. There are several public and private boat ramps within 15 minutes of the Retreat, giving you access to the Gulf of Mexico and local rivers.
Downtown Tallahassee and Florida State University are only 15 miles from the Retreat and Wakulla Springs State Park (home of one of the largest and deepest freshwater springs in the world) is only 6 miles from the Retreat.
If the Wakulla Springs Retreat is booked during the dates you want it, please see our sister site, St. Marks Retreat, VRBO site #63806, on the St. Marks River.
We celebrated the New Year with our family as the first guests at Wakulla Springs Retreat. We enjoyed the peace and quiet for the week. It certainly helps to remember what is really important in life when things slow down a bit.

We had a wonderful experience exploring this section of “old Florida”.
Boat ride and Wakulla State Park – alligators, manatees, many birds. Highly recommend this tour
Captain Mike McNamara in the town of St. Marks will provide a comprehensive boat tour of the St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge. From his boat, we were able to photograph many birds, most notably, the Bald Eagle, both perched and in flight. Porpoises visited and followed the boat. Mike is also a fishing guide.
Walking path around the ponds at the light house in the Refuge:
Many waterfowl, most notably, Redheads and American Wigeon.
Posey’s Seafood Restaurant on the waterfront in Panacea-very good
Visitor’s Center in the Refuge has maps and books available.
We had a great stay- saw and photographed more than 45 different bird species.
Thanks for your hospitality!

Wakulla SPrings News and Notes
Park Ranger Patty Wilbur conducts the research which keeps track of the manatees within the park. She has been following a new baby manatee born in the part about a month ago. The youngster is the offspring of a manatee believed to have been born in Sally Ward Spring (a spring just before reaching the park entrance station) in July of 2007. With much excitement, Patty relayed the moment she saw the mother and her new baby feeding alongside grandma just behind the boat dock. It is unexpected and special moments such as this that keep the magic alive at Wakulla Springs.
Ooooooh! Aaaaah! Wheeeee! Make it a point to visit Wakulla Springs in September to experience it all!

About the owner: We are a retired couple, one from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and one from 44 years of teaching elementary school.

Why the Owner Chose Crawfordville, FL, USA:
This property is surrounded by all the sights and sounds of nature. The setting is one of quiet solitude. It is a place where one can just sit and enjoy all of the beauty of the trees but is close enough to all the area attractions. We find it to be a place we can totally unwind after a busy day.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We have built a large deck in the fenced backyard which is perfect for cooking out. It is perfect for sitting in the evening while the lightenbugs come out to play.
