Property description

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, 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 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 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 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 (not cable).

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 residents, Bradley Cooley Jr. and his father, Bradley Cooley Sr. Cabin is maintained and operated by Bradley Jr., and his wife Jenny.

Why the Owner Chose Monticello, FL, USA:
If you have an understanding and appreciation for the outdoors, you will not find a more unique piece of property in a more private or beautiful location. If you want to be closer to noise and chaos, this place is probably not for you.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
We fell in love with this property for its natural beauty. What started to be just a "family fish camp" turned out to be a beautiful cabin we decided to build instead. 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.
