Why Chancey Sheffield chose Jackson County

We were looking for a quiet get away from our busy lives in Tallahassee. Silver Lake is a close yet far enough away location to find peace and relaxation.

What makes this cabin unique

The most beautiful sunsets as we are facing directly west. Crystal clear pure water with white sandy bottom. No loud motor boats. Abundant wildlife!

Nice

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our trip but never had luck fishing and to was cold and windy a couple of days. Chancy though was a super nice person. She would do anything to make your stay better. We really enjoyed the house. Sandra and Gary Byers

Not quite as expected

  • 4 of 5

What we liked: house is well maintained; very comfortable furniture from beds to sofa; enclosed front porch was a good place to relax; and sunsets were brilliant as described by others. What we didn’t like: upon arrival we discovered towels and bedding from the previous guests were in the dryer and soaking wet. Taking care of linens from a former guest when we were charged a $150 cleaning fee is not a good way to start a vacation; last mile of the access road to the rental was sand with potholes and rough as a washboard, 10-15 mpr travel at best; and the neighbors are VERY close on either side, noise was a problem especially the night one neighbor had a party that ended in a 1 am shouting match on an outside deck.

Owner's Response: I am so sorry for the inconveniences of wet laundry and bumpy roads! I have sent you a refund on the cleaning fee. I hope your overall experience of the lake was enjoyable. Take care! Chancey ;)

Amazing experience

  • 5 of 5

The view was amazing!

We made s’mores over the fire pit. Went for a dip in the crystal clear lake. Caught a bass the first 5 min on the dock. The kitchen was fully equipped to make a feast at every meal. The A/C worked great. Showers had good stream of hot water. Dishwasher was a nice have. The stars and sky were so clear outside and even saw a lot of shooting stars. We had a great vacation and intend on coming back!
