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.

Some Good; Some So So

  • 3 of 5

The location of this house is wonderful and we certainly enjoyed the sunsets from the upper deck. This is an older home and appears to have few updates. The tub on the upper level drains slowly and needs to be addressed. Luckily, the shower on the ground level was great and there was plenty of hot water. The light above the kitchen sink appeared to have burnt out but we realized that the GFI plug behind the coffee maker had thrown. We came to that conclusion when the toaster oven was no longer operational as well. The microwave is small and older and has a broken wheel on the turntable.

This home has a lot of space for a large number of people and had plenty of space for just the two of us. There was only one closet that could be used to hang our clothes as the other closets were pretty full of owner items. There were a lot of seasonings left for our use and many dishes, pots and pans for cooking and serving.

There is only one TV in the house which worked fine. There is no WiFi available. This was like staying at grandma's house with linens and towels seeing much previous use - clean but worn. We were certainly comfortable and our stay was pleasant as we are interested in this location for seeing birds. Unfortunately, the weather was too cool to attract dolphins. The people in the area are very friendly and helpful. The property has a very homey feel so don't expect a "luxury" experience.

I grew up in the country and don't want to appear snooty but this property could benefit from some TLC and updates. This would probably be great for a large family and because it is homey, little ones could enjoy the space in a relaxed attitude.

Owner's Response: Thank you for letting us know about the tub & towels. I do have new towels but we keep extras for large groups etc. We had a women’s sewing group the weekend before so maybe everything wasn’t quite put back. We do keep extra pillows & blankets for winter in closets, I’ll check to be sure there is plenty of room for guest. This was my grandparents home and is very special to us. We continue to make improvements & appreciate suggestions !

We had a wonderful time! Ladies quilting retreat! Plenty of room to spread out and enjoy each other’s company and our sewing. January Weather changes daily! We had 30’s at night to 60 during the day.

Well stocked kitchen , everything we needed for our meals.

Will return next year!

Great Place

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.
