"This was a wonderful home to use as our home base as we explored the Florida Panhandle, Southern Georgia, and Southern Alabama. There was plenty of room for our family of 5 in this wonderfully clean and stocked home. Sleeping arrangements include - King bed in the Master, Queen bed in 2nd bedroom, 2 double beds in 3rd bedroom, bonus area off of Master with a single over a double bunk, and a sleeper couch in living room. There are 2 bathrooms - Master with a shower and other with tub/shower. The kitchen, living room, dining area, and sunroom are all open concept, making the home very spacious. The home sits on a great part of Seminole Lake and has a covered dock with 2 boat slips, swing, room to place chairs, and rod holders. The boat ramp is right down the road. We didn't bass fish, which this area is well known for, but did catch some bream and catfish from the dock. We also saw 2 gators, several turtles, and lots of different kinds of birds. The swing is a wonderful place to sit and relax. The home is equipped with dish network and wifi, if you don't want to get away from it all.
Bainbridge and Donalsonville are your nearest towns and are about 20 minutes away. There are a couple of little minute marts and a Dollar General right down the road, but for major shopping you will need to go to one of the towns. The house was well stocked - you just need to bring your personal items and food. The Tabbs were excellent to work with and were quick to respond to text or email if we had a question. We stayed for 9 wonderful relaxing days. If we wanted to just rest and relax, we stayed right there at the house. Other days we set out to explore the 3 states around. Thanks to the Tabbs for sharing their wonderful home!
