About Brenda Honeycutt

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 I live in Miami, but I have close family and reliable neighbors living on Lake Talquin, who take immaculate care of the home and the needs of my guests.

Brenda Honeycutt purchased this house in 2006

Why Brenda Honeycutt chose Quincy

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 antiques belonging to my great grandparents and a few pieces I brought from Germany, 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.

What makes this house unique

- On-site property manager to assist if needed.

- Fishing guides 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.

We had a great stay - Brenda is an excellent host - the property was exactly as advertised.

  • 5 of 5

The property was exactly what we needed for our stay with family visiting our daughter at FSU. The house was extremely clean and provided for all our needs on our short break.

The local folks were very welcoming and we enjoyed The Whip Pub n Grub on more than one occasion during our trip.

Highly recommend staying at Lake Talquin if you don't need to be in Tallahassee and don't mind an easy short drive into the city.

We definitely intend to stay again for future trips and graduation.

Thank you Brenda for your tremendous hospitality.

Great Vacation Spot!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent three nights at Talquin Tranquility and THOROUGHLY enjoyed our stay. The location was ideal for us: two boat launches within walking distance of the house as well as a marina and a restaurant (with great food!). The house is very cozy and comfortable and was absolutely SPOTLESS when we checked in. We loved the fact that it is directly on the water and we were able to keep our jon boat docked at the house dock during our stay. And we gave the fish cleaning station a major workout!!! :) We will definitely stay here again.
