A Slip a-Way Place! Marina House W/ Boat Slip Tallahassee, Florida, United States

USD 115

PROPERTY Description

Slip a way to a wonderful, unique place just south of Tallahassee on Florida's Forgotten Coast. 
A 2 bedroom 2 bath house over an "Old Florida" style, 18 slip, Marina just 30 min south of the capital city of Tallahassee. The two large bedrooms sleep 4, and there is plenty of space in the living room for air mattresses. The kitchen is spacious and fully appointed for cooking your catch or making sandwiches for lunch on the covered deck.

The large covered deck is perfect for relaxing, and enjoying spectacular views of the quaint Florida coast. In fact, the views from the living room are just as engaging, as large windows and glass French doors bring the outside indoors, with air-conditioning!
Enjoy Direct TV and internet access, but bring your own DVRs, gaming consoles, and telephones.

Activities include boating, fishing, swimming, and kayaking. Bring your kayak to enjoy some of the best water exploration available in Florida. Or bring your boat down to fish, tube ski, or just motor around the pristine waters of Florida's Big Bend, including Gulf of Mexico access if you feel like an adventure.

Even though you don't have a boat to take advantage of the free slip, visiting Spring Creek Marina is still a unique and fun get away.For swimming, take Cutoff Road ( a tree canopied, sandy lane) to Shell Point Beach, drive down Coastal 98 to Mashes Sands Beach, Bald Point Beach, Alligator Point, and St. George Island Beach, or spend a lazy day swimming at Wakulla Springs.

Rather be on the links? Travel five minutes down the road to Wildwood Resort to enjoy 18 holes, Pub and Grill, and a world-class pro shop.With camera in hand, take Coastal 98 west to the St. Marks National WIldlife Refuge which occupies thousands of acres of pristine and environmentally-sensitive land along the Gulf of Mexico. The land preserved by the refuge includes some of the most historically significant in the state.
Or head up the road to Edward Ball Wakulla Springs State Park which sits atop a wondrous maze of underground caverns and is among the world’s largest and deepest fresh-water springs. The 6,000 acre park overflows with wildlife that can be see daily on the riverboat ride through the protected corridor of the Wakulla River. It is a nature photographer's delight. 

Or, journey a little over an hour west, on Coastal Hwy 98, to the quaint fishing village of Apalachicola, home to eclectic shopping and an array of restaurants and bistros featuring local seafood.

Speaking of local seafood, whether you catch it yourself or dine at the many restaurants from St. Marks to Apalachicola, eating from the bounty of the sea will be high on your agenda. We recommend Riverside Cafe, Spring Creek Restaurant, Angelo's, Mad Anthony's, Shrimp Trading Company, Posey's Up the Creek, Blue Parrot,and Boss Oyster, among many others. BTW, Spring Creek Restaurant will cook your catch, and you may have enough to feed yourself and friends every time you go out for a relaxing day of fishing at Spring Creek Marina.

What about the fall and winter? First of all, it's warm and sunny year round at the Spring Creek Marina. It's the perfect slip away for dull wintery days in the city, or the perfect spot to stay if you're headed to Tallahassee to catch the game and pull for your favorite team.If you're interested in November to February monthly rates, contact us regarding booking at seasonal prices.

Owner Description

Year Purchased: 1992 About the owner: The marina has been a Council family home base since our parents bought it in 1992. Our parents, Hal and Yvonne, made this place a quaint, quiet secret for people looking for a marina home. In 2011 we lost them, but we have decided to open the marina house to offer their vision to all. We are Lori Farkas, Susan Council, and our sons, Sam and Coy. We have many a wonderful story of times our families have had enjoying the Spring Creek Marina. It is our hope that all who stay with us have the same memories and stories to tell of their times at Spring Creek Marina. Why the Owner Chose Shell Point: For us, the Marina and the beauty of the Forgotten Coast are part of our DNA. Our mother Yvonne loved this spot to the day she died. It was her wish that we would continue to enjoy the Marina, and introduce the public to the Old Florida she loved. Lori remembers the proud day when, after taking her sailboat out for the day and showing up for cocktails in a Hawaiian shirt and flip flops, her Mom said "You are finally a "Creeker". For us, the Marina was more than home--it was an attitude. Relax, let go, and become one with this awesome part of Florida. We wish the same for all of you. The Unique Benefits at this House: Enjoy a boat slip right outside your door! Spring creek has gulf access 16 fresh water springs boil out of the ocean floor making the water clear and fresh( no barnacles!) Visit the "Cold Hole" right around the bend for a refreshing swim in a large spring boil, flowing so hard at times , you can't swim across, anchor your boat and relax Outstanding fishing Contact us Speaks: English
