About the Property

3 bedroom (1 with 2 beds), 1.5 bath nestled on 5 acres with springs access

We would like to invite you to recharge in our one of a kind 'Off the Grid' Cabin. This property is located at the end of Malloy's Landing Road in beautiful Wacissa, FL. Only 30 minutes away from FSU and FAMU Universities for the perfect weekend/ game day get away. Tallahassee is 30 minutes away for convenient shopping and banking. This 3 bedroom, 1 1/2 bath cabin sleeps 8 comfortable but large enough to sleep up to 10 (we recommend and fees are based on up to 8), to include a large upstairs loft and plenty of room for extra sleeping bags or blanket pallets on the floor for more family/friends. The cabin is 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 logs pulled from the Wacissa river by the owner, and it's tributaries. Some of the planks used in the walls are more 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 the Grid' meaning there are no utilities coming in from the power company. We utilize solar panels and a backup diesel generator to maintain power to the cabin 24/7. Do not worry about the noise of the generator; we have it settled far enough from the cabin that it will not interfere with the quietness you may be looking for. Except for Wi-Fi (not provided), the cabin is equipped with central air, propane hot water on demand (unlimited) and most of your every day luxuries that would be found in a home in town; but without the hustle and bustle. We have TV with approximately 12 clear channel (no cable) but then again if you are renting this cabin, the last place you want to be is inside watching TV.

So our invitation extends to anyone wanting to relax, celebrate a special occasion or attend a FSU or FAMU football game. 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 you wish. Come on out and experience true adventure in a one of a kind cabin.

** Events and parties over 8 will be an extra charge. Please contact owner for details.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: This cabin was built by local resident, Bradley Cooley. Growing up in the area, Bradley has always loved the Wacissa river and envisioned a beautiful cabin sitting on this property one day. Bradley, along with friends and family who helped construct the cabin made it a reality. What started out to be a family fish camp turned in to be a one-of- a kind cabin nestled on the beautiful Wacissa River. The cabin is constructed from river logs out of the river. Property is owned and operated by Bradley and Jenny Cooley, and dear friends, Jon and Amanda Schee.

Why the Owner Chose Monticello, FL, USA:
If you have an appreciation for the great outdoors, you will not find a more unique piece of property in a more private, beautiful location. If you like the hustle and bustle of the noisy city and want to be closer to the chaos, this place is probably not for you. From swimming in the cold, natural springs of the Wacissa in the North Florida summer time, to roasting mash mellows in the winter time by the fire pit, our cabin has a little for everyone. You must enjoy the great outdoors and river life to appreciate this place.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
We fell in love with this property for its natural beauty. The wood we built the cabin with comes from the very river it sits beside. This is without a doubt one of the most peaceful and relaxing places you've been in North Florida. Sitting in the middle of the head waters and Big Blue (natural spring), a day of fun on the river awaits.
