About Kris Hebert

The house was initially built by my grandparents who had lived in Tallahassee since the 1940s. We are all FSU Seminoles and call Tallahassee home.

Kris Hebert purchased this house in 1964

Why Kris Hebert chose Crawfordville

This property has been in our family since 1964. We have many wonderful memories exploring the wildlife and playing in the water. Check out the pictures of the view from our deck. There is truly something for everyone no matter the age.

What makes this house unique

Our favorite experience is sitting on the upper deck with our cold beverages; watching the sun set while the birds soar and the the porpoises feed.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

This is my second time staying at this property, and I have nothing but great things to say about it, and the owners as well. I will continue to book it on my trips to Tallahassee when it is available.

Wildlife Refuge Vacation!

  • 4 of 5

The house is an older home but well kept and what you would expect to find in such a remote location. We loved the view from the porches where we were greeted by an awesome display of antics by a group of dolphins right in front of the house. We saw small alligators in the canal in front of the house! None the less, my daughter enjoyed early morning kayaking out into the bay. We were in the area to attend an FSU football game. Tallahassee is about 45 minute drive north. We also visited Wakulla Springs, and the visitors' center and lighthouse inside the St. Marks Wildlife refuge. This would be a great place to stay in the winter during the bird migration south.

We really enjoyed our stay. If you are looking for a quiet and peaceful retreat. This is it. The sunsets were beautiful. We planned our days to be home for the sunsets.

Great value, nice location

  • 4 of 5

The house is great, plenty of room and good value. The canal is shallow and dries up at low tide. Good for skiffs, no good for bigger boats. It does need a dock, rocks and rubble on the shore are a hazard.
