Wakulla River Hidden Cottage Retreat

Riverfront vacation home with kitchen and patio
Wakulla River Hidden Cottage is a lovely 2 bedroom/1 bath and nature lover’s retreat. The cottage is nestled on a partially wooded lot and is just a 4-minute walk to the gorgeous spring-fed Wakulla River, to the park, boat ramp, and community dock. A large screened porch runs the length of the cottage and a wide kitchen window overlooks the lovely private back yard.

Explore the river in a comfortable Old Town canoe (with seat backs and cup holders). The canoe is available to rent from us for a reasonable rate. Or relax at the house in front of a large screen smart tv and watch movies on a rainy day. Grill out or read a book under an umbrella on the back yard deck or walk the wooded neighborhood. Enjoy the private backyard and the colorful perennial flowers and garden spot.
Start your day with coffee or morning meditation from a private deck that sits just off of the kitchen, high among the trees, and overlooks a wooded walking path that winds through the woods along the side of the cottage.

You will love this sweet cottage and will return home after your visit renewed and refreshed! The cottage is so close to a plethora of parks, places to paddle and hike, the coast and is just 20 minutes from south Tallahassee.

Air-conditioned accommodations at this vacation home offer DVD players and coffee/tea makers. Rooms open to patios. Accommodations are furnished with dining tables and kitchen islands.

5/5 Excellent

Exceeded my Expectations
Making a decision to stay at this location was one of my better decisions. The place is beautiful and scenic, and Sarah is the host with the most; you couldn't ask for a more thoughtful and accessible host. I will definitely return in the future. For those of you looking for a location in the area - look no further; this is it! Thanks for all of the nice treats and surprises Sarah. LaMarr & Nate

5/5 Excellent

Lovely home in the woods
Very clean, well furnished cottage in a quiet location. Sarah is a conscientious and responsive host.

Fantastic Experience
Let me just say I stay at quite a few VRBO and Sarah by far is the best hostess. The sweet little welcome touches and her prompt responses to any question I had were unlike anyone else. The cottage itself is clean and adorable. My friend and I sat out on the screen porch for hours talking. The kitchen has everything you need to make a meal with. With COVID I felt very comfortable with the cleaniness, I didn't feel it was necessary to wipe anything down like I typically do. The area is quant and perfect for a getaway. We were far enough away to not hear any cars but yet close to eating or a store if we decided to venture out. I can not say enough good things about the cottage or Sarah, it was a well needed girls trip and the cottage with all the little touches is exactly what we needed. We will definitely be booking again. Christy

Reviews are spot-on!
We wish we could have had a few more days to enjoy this wonderful little cottage! The hosts were thoughtful, and the property was full of little extras that made it a delightful weekend. We were in the area for activities at the University, so we couldn't spend much time there, but I can't wait to visit with enough time to enjoy the springs. I will definitely keep this location on the top of the list!
