Wow, just wow. Don't have the words to describe what a beautiful setting this cabin is in. We skipped everything for the first day just so we could sit out by the river. Peaceful and beautiful, very secluded and private - natural beauty no matter what direction you face. The cabin was very clean. Had a coffee maker issue and the owner brought a new one immediately! We kayaked down to the US98 bridge (thanks to Robert from The Wilderness Way who shuttled us) and saw lots of wildlife. This part of the river is super quiet - we saw one boat for the entire two days were were there. But it gets more traffic further down toward the Gulf. Fantastic place, would rent again in a heartbeat!
The property has the feel of being in the middle of a swamp. The variety of birds is truly amazing and the sounds at night magical. That being said, it is close to a Tallahassee plus numerous state parks and wildlife refuges. Great places to walk plus, to my surprise, outstanding for cyclist. St Marks refuges is ideal for road bikes plus the county roads near the property are also inviting.
St. Marks access and retreat
We spent 5 days at the St. Marks cabin. It was just as described on the website. This was a return trip for us. We visited in 2013 and little had changed and we were pleased. The property allows access to the upper reaches of the St. Marks River and River Rise spring which lacks public access and is very private. We were pleased by the abundance of wildlife found in the lake like are upstream of the house. We were able to closely observe an eagle, an osprey, otter, raccoon, wood storks, and the usual list of native water birds. Using the sandy lower section of the Old Plank Road, we were able to easily set up a shuttle leaving our vehicle down river at the Rt. 98 bridge takeout and biking back to the cabin in 40 minutes. This allowed us a 3-4 hour afternoon float down the river viewing wildlife with an easy takeout and return to the cottage. We also used that route for a short cut to the St. Marks Wildlife Refuge to bike the trails on dikes throughout the park. A public access as well as a Canoe/kayak rental shop are found on the nearby Wicassa River at the headwaters. This is an easy paddle trip that should not be missed to view at least 3 huge springs with swimming acccess. The cottage was very well equipped, very clean, and well stocked. All the additional recommendations provided by the owners were extremely useful and taken advantage of.
Loved the Retreat!
The cottage is adorable - very homey feeling when we walked in for the first time - decorated beautifully and very well stalked with everything we needed.
The location is extremely private and very picturesque! The screened is porch overlooks the beautiful river, which made it our favorite ‘room’ in the house!
The owner was extremely helpful and very responsive. We were having difficulty with accessing the internet when we first got there and he replaced the router on our second day. What a difference it made! We brought our ROKU gadget with us and were able to binge on all our favorite shows.
Very relaxing visit!
Refuge (on many levels) cabin
The cabin was clean and well-stocked with basics. The location is wonderful, right on the St. Mark's River and with access to the nearby refuge, as well as many other destinations such as the beach, the city, and local sites such as Natural Bridges State Park (we saw an otter!). Perfect site if you love the outdoors and nature viewing. Barred owls calling at night, as well as a variety of frogs. Floyd visited with us and was very welcoming and accommodating.
