Located on Lake Talquin, this home is on Cooks Landing Road, across the street from Ingram's Marina and walking distance to Whippoorwills and the public boat ramp.
My neighbor offers fishing guide services or boat riding excursions for up to 6 people.
Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: I purchased this lot and cozy manufactured home for my mother's retirement. She loved every remaining minute of her life here and took great pride in her yard and flowers. Since she passed in 2012, I am offering the home as a vacation rental until I too can retire and enjoy the beautiful surroundings and fishing at Lake Talquin. I am originally from Dothan, AL, and my teenage son and I live in Atlanta. We also have family living on Lake Talquin, and we still love to visit there during holidays.
Why the Owner Chose Quincy, FL, USA:
In addition to the obvious waterfront advantages and boating and fishing opportunities, other site-seeing opportunities are close by, like the state capital, Wakulla Springs, Florida Caverns, and beaches are close enough for day outings on the beach. My family lives down the road, and my retired cousin is the property manager to assist you if needed. The home is furnished with a number of old antique chifferodes and dressers from my great-grandparents, a bit scarred, but real special to me. No worries, they survived 100+ years already, so I trust they'll survive my guests just as well :-) My dependable handy man keeps the property in tip top condition, including the yards and flower beds, which is quite a task when you see the size of this lovely lot. This home is only 40 minutes from Florida's State Capital in Tallahassee and Florida State University. Therefore, this is an ideal location for families to visit the capital, museums, etc., or visit students and attend events at FSU. Beautiful Wakulla Springs and the Florida State Caverns are nearby as well.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
You will find nice and quiet neighbors on the cove. Two different neighbors are Tallahassee Police Officers and an EMT is just a few feet away. They keep an eye out for me along with my cousin across the road. - On-site property manager to assist if needed. - Fishing guide available for fishing or boating excursions. - A public boat launch is located down the street at Whippoorwill's. - Walk to Whippoorwill's and enjoy their waterfront restaurant and pub. Great opportunity to enjoy your beverages and walk (not drive) home. - The State Capital and Florida State University (FSU) is only a 40 minute drive.
