Overview

About the property

3 bedroom (1 with 2 beds), 1.5 bath nestled on 5 acres with springs access

We would like to invite you to recharge in our one of a kind 'Off the Grid' Cabin. This property is located at the end of Malloy's Landing Road in beautiful Wacissa, FL. Only 30 minutes away from FSU and FAMU Universities for the perfect weekend/ game day get away. Tallahassee is 30 minutes away for convenient shopping and banking. This 3 bedroom, 1 1/2 bath cabin sleeps 8 comfortable but large enough to sleep up to 10 (we recommend and fees are based on up to 8), to include a large upstairs loft and plenty of room for extra sleeping bags or blanket pallets on the floor for more family/friends. The cabin is nestled on one of the beautiful springs that feed the Wacissa river surrounded by towering 80' White Oaks, pines and hundred year old Cypress trees. From the front porch you can view wildlife such as deer, raccoons, woodpeckers, blue herons, hummingbirds, cormorants and wild turkey. Cabin is constructed of 100+ year old river logs pulled from the Wacissa river by the owner, and it's tributaries. Some of the planks used in the walls are more than 20' wide, the handrail on the stairs to the loft is made from a civil war era bridge blank, and much of the structure has actual river wood trees from the foundation through the floor to the ceiling. The property is 'Off the Grid' meaning there are no utilities coming in from the power company. We utilize solar panels and a backup diesel generator to maintain power to the cabin 24/7. Do not worry about the noise of the generator; we have it settled far enough from the cabin that it will not interfere with the quietness you may be looking for. Except for Wi-Fi (not provided), the cabin is equipped with central air, propane hot water on demand (unlimited) and most of your every day luxuries that would be found in a home in town; but without the hustle and bustle. We have TV with approximately 12 clear channel (no cable) but then again if you are renting our cabin, the last place you want to be is inside watching TV.

* Starting May 2017, we will be offering Air Boat tours. While staying at our cabin, what better way to see the beautiful Wacissa than from the front seat of a beautiful new airboat; owned and operated by Captain Bradley Cooley (property owner). We are now offering Eco tours; which includes history lesson of the river from back when the native Americans were here, photography, fishing, sight seeing or just a good ole' airboat ride along the beautiful Wacissa river and springs. We even offer Frog Gigging at night tours. Ask owner for details and booking information.

So our invitation extends to anyone wanting to relax, celebrate a special occasion or attend a FSU or FAMU football game. You will be 1.5 miles from the closest house and 1 mile behind a locked gate so you can have the privacy to do whatever you wish. Come on out and experience true adventure in a one of a kind cabin on one of North Florida's most pristine rivers.

**Events and parties over 8 will be an extra charge. Please contact owner for details.

*** We love pets and they are welcome but we have to cover cost of a deeper cleaning for pet stays. Additional cleaning fee of $50.00 will be added for guests with indoor pets. Any damage caused to furniture/flooring will be at owner's expense.
