About the Property

3 BR, 2 BA home with porch, 2 private docks

Relax on the screened-in porch or hammock and enjoy the quiet days on the lake. Even on the busiest holidays there's rarely more than 8 boats on the water, leaving plenty of time to enjoy the solitude of the water while canoeing or fishing or relaxing with a good book. The house is decorated in French country shabby chic, and has been completely renovated top to bottom. Its very comfortable but not fancy, so Moms can relax! It has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, and a beach-like shoreline that is very shallow for little ones. Everything you need for a comfy vacation, especially a great A/C!

Car: Necessary

This property is situated on a small lake near the Apalachicola National Forrest and the Apalachicola River. The water is clear but not icy like most Florida springs and are teeming with bass and bream. Tubing down the clear, cool waters of Chipola River is only 40 minutes away in Marianna, FL, as well as Torreya State Park and the Florida Caverns. Turn in another direction and 35 minutes away from the doorway are the glass-bottom boat rides and swimming at Wakulla Springs where several Tarzan movies and The Creature From the Black Lagoon (a classic, no doubt) were filmed. Near Wakulla Springs you can also canoe down the Wakulla River that often is so clear you can touch manatees with your paddle. And of course head west from Lake Mystic to the beautiful beaches of Panama City, Destin and St. George Island.
