“Old Florida Nature at its best! History and Quiet prevail”

On the St. Marks river, this get away is perfect for birders seeking to see St. Mark's Nature Preserve that is a direct flyover for over 100 migrating species. The beaches nearby are pristine Gulf beaches. You can see so many racoons, otters, and others just from the dock. The decks with a comfortable porch on the river that is screened in and an open porch on the side with a gas grill. The perfect combination of historical, but fully restored WWII housing make this two bedroom, kitchen, front room, and one bath like stepping back into a by-gone era. There are books and much more to acquaint you with birds and wildlife that are right around you. Be careful at night and drive very slow for the deer that are numerous in the area. This is a one of a kind place for nature and history lovers - it is not a party place. It would also be great for Florida State parents looking for a quiet place to give their college kids a good home cooked meal. Be sure to see the Battle of Natural Bridge. This battle fought by those elder and young (the able body men had gone off to fight for the Confederacy) kept the Union from taking Tallahassee (the only state capital not taken by the Union during the Civil War). Their sacrifice is cherished and remembered in a nice park with a picnic area.
