Cabin Located in a Birding and Fishing Paradise

Historic cottage in Crawfordville
Do you want to have your morning coffee and watch the sun come up while sitting on the front porch in the swing or the rockers or lounging on the large deck in the backyard listening to the birds sing; away from the noises of city life, traffic and stress? Then this is the place for you.
.
Our Wakulla Springs Retreat is located on 5 secluded acres of hardwood trees off the beaten track but close to the Tallahassee-St. Marks Historic Railroad State Trail (15 miles of a beautiful paved bicycle corridor), Wakulla Springs State Park, the St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge, the Apalachicola National Forest, the San Marcos de Apalache Historic State Park in the town of St. Marks at the confluence of the beautiful St. Marks and Wakulla rivers, the Felburn Foundation Playground with covered picnic tables and a fabulous array of playground equipment. There are several excellent seafood restaurants close by so you don’t have to spend your time cooking. Only 3 miles from the Retreat is Savannah’s (home of the famous $2.00 breakfast and a great country buffet at lunch and dinner).

The fenced backyard is a perfect place for approved pets and the bike trail provides a great place to take your pet on a leisurely shaded stroll. Before we approve your pet, we must know your pet's breed, age and size and if he/she will be on good behavior if you have to leave him/her alone in the Retreat? A pet fee of $25 will be charged upon approval. Our concern is that your pet is safe and so is our Retreat.

There are many recreational opportunities abundantly throughout Florida's Forgotten Coast, known as the 'sportsman's paradise', including Salt & Freshwater fishing, hiking, bicycling, hunting and canoeing. Also, convenient access to the Gulf of Mexico is just minutes away in St. Marks.

No matter what your taste may be, whether it's flats fishing for trout, redfish, tarpon, or Spanish mackerel, or just a few miles out some of the finest grouper fishing in the Gulf of mexico, this is truly an angler's paradise, with every salt water activity you care to do, such as snorkeling for scallops, scuba diving to see some of the most beautiful natural reefs, or just a lazy day with the family at the coast.

We have plenty of room for boaters to bring their boats to the Retreat. There are several public and private boat ramps within 15 minutes of the Retreat, giving you access to the Gulf of Mexico and local rivers.

Downtown Tallahassee and Florida State University are only 15 miles from the Retreat and Wakulla Springs State Park (home of one of the largest and deepest freshwater springs in the world) is only 6 miles from the Retreat.

If the Wakulla Springs Retreat is booked during the dates you want it, please see our sister site, St. Marks Retreat, VRBO site #63806, on the St. Marks River.

Guest Testimonials

We celebrated the New Year with our family as the first guests at Wakulla Springs Retreat. We enjoyed the peace and quiet for the week. It certainly helps to remember what is really important in life when things slow down a bit.

Ashley, Jessie and family.
Sugar Land, TX

We had a wonderful experience exploring this section of “old Florida”.

Highlights:
Boat ride and Wakulla State Park – alligators, manatees, many birds. Highly recommend this tour

Captain Mike McNamara in the town of St. Marks will provide a comprehensive boat tour of the St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge. From his boat, we were able to photograph many birds, most notably, the Bald Eagle, both perched and in flight. Porpoises visited and followed the boat. Mike is also a fishing guide.

Walking path around the ponds at the light house in the Refuge:
Many waterfowl, most notably, Redheads and American Wigeon.

Posey’s Seafood Restaurant on the waterfront in Panacea-very good

Visitor’s Center in the Refuge has maps and books available.

We had a great stay- saw and photographed more than 45 different bird species.

Thanks for your hospitality!

5/5 Excellent

Amazing and peaceful place!
We spent an amazing and relaxed weekend. The property owners were super kind and the communication was constant and clear. They helped me with driving instructions and general information about the area. The house inside and out was impeccable. I will definitely recommend it!

5/5 Excellent

Great weekend getaway!
We had a great time getting out of the city and catching up with friends at the retreat! It was quiet, peaceful, and just what we all needed.

5/5 Excellent

Nice comfortable rental.
Very clean. Great to have a deck and fenced in yard. Would recommend this rental. No problems at all. Enjoyed the peaceful location.

4/5 Good

Very clean & spacious
This rental was very clean & spacious within close proximity to the Wakula River. The owners were very helpful and quick to respond. This is technically a double wide (which I expected and made no difference to me), but thought I’d mention it since that is not clear in the description. Nice big deck, comfy beds, plenty of linens & again super clean. We would definitely rent this home again.

5/5 Excellent

Sweet country cottage
