Family Fun in the Tallahassee Sun! Pool / Lake / Private Balcony / Woodlands

Family-friendly Tallahassee guesthouse in Woodland Drives with outdoor pool

Enjoy the tree house feel on your own private balcony perfect for overlooking the lake, coffee mornings and romantic wine evenings.

You will be close to everything important when you visit Tallahassee, the capital city of Florida, as within 2 miles of Woodlands Guesthouse you will be right near FSU, and near Florida’s state capitol building. Super convenient to restaurants and shopping, you can just relax and enjoy the Tallahassee weather. You could even rent a car at the Tallahassee airport, which is only 6 miles away, and be here in no time! Feel like taking a bit of time for fun on some Florida beaches? You can drive to a gorgeous sandy, secluded beach in only 45 minutes. We are also very close to a lot of fun things to do in Tallahassee and are very near to parks and rec, even within walking distance!

You may have traveled hours to get here and now can happily relax as you pull your car into our private driveway, your own convenient parking space directly next to the guesthouse. A quiet, serene and cozy private place to stay in Tallahassee with nature and tall trees surrounding you, you will feel a great sense of peace in our safe, extremely clean, well-maintained surroundings. As you walk from your car next to the guesthouse, you will find a welcome break from the heat with the screened in heated 40 foot swimming pool. Enjoy the wonder of the tree house feel with your own private balcony; perfect for overlooking the sunrise on the lake for morning coffee. Your time spent here at Woodlands Guesthouse will feel like a getaway, coming away feeling refreshed, at peace and fully rested.

Get a really great nights’ sleep on a beautifully made and comfortable king bed with soft linens. Allergy sufferers will be thankful this is a very low dust property without pet dander and other major allergens due to the laminate wood flooring and window blinds instead of curtains. As we only use natural and eco-friendly amenities, such as shampoo, conditioner, body wash, and hand wash, you can feel good about staying in a place kind to the environment. Listen to the radio or play a CD to relax or just to listen to while you are getting ready to head out for the day with the radio/CD player.

Family friendly! We want our guests with small children to feel welcome and enjoy the pool and other amenities, like a pack n play travel crib, children's toys and books, a baby bath and high chair.

We have a futon that can become a twin sized bed in the living area with bedding always at hand in the armoire.

We have tried to create a great Airbnb experience for you to make for a memorable stay. Relax on the evenings with our 48” TV with Directv or if you decide to bring your own portable devices, we have power strips next to the bed and with our high speed Wi-Fi, you are all set. Tallahassee weather can turn rainy in an instant, and that’s why you will keep entertained with our vast selection of fun travel games and crosswords.

With the ability to cook meals in the fully functioning kitchenette, you won’t have to worry about grabbing every meal out. We have a convection toaster oven that can toast, bake and broil. A microwave oven, portable burner with a frying pan and 2 pots, steamer, cooking utensils, mixing and serving bowls.

Feel like you are right at home with use of our own iron, ironing board and hair dryer along with a full length mirror.

For our business travelers, if you need to get work done during your stay, there is strong Wi-Fi and a large desk to spread everything out on, a really comfortable desk chair and a power strip to plug everything in.

Private use of screened in 40 ft pool, private entrance/exit and driveway for off street parking. Please note the guesthouse is up a flight of stairs so this property is not wheelchair friendly, sorry. Guests access the property via Mor Bihan Road (a private road) and through their own private driveway.

You will probably feel rather secluded, especially if this is what you were after, but if you happen to see me or my husband, we’ll be happy to chat. Our home is separated from the guesthouse with the pool in the middle of the two homes.

Loved loved loved staying here!
What a fantastic rental in a lovely historic neighborhood. Peaceful wooded location with birds chirping and little traffic noise. It was a pleasure to sit out on the small deck in the afternoon sunshine. Unit was well furnished, bed was comfortable, shower had hot water and great water pressure, and Jennifer was a consummate host who let me know by text that she was available should we need anything. Her husband, Simon, also was very welcoming. It was the perfect blend of accessibility and privacy. Would happily stay here again if we were in town.

5/5 Excellent

Jennifer runs a very professional and takes all steps to ensure a great birdhouse getaway!
What you see is what you get. A safe off the beaten path quiet and quaint environment. I think if the weather was better., we would have been able to take more advantage of the setting. No regrets!

5/5 Excellent

Perfect private getaway!!
Everything was great. I did sacrifice a fabulous bathroom for the heated pool that was NOT in service. It had a sign that said the pool is closed. We were a bit disappointed. Otherwise, everything was great!!

5/5 Excellent

Cute and Clean Property
This location was perfect for a short stay in Tallahassee! The owner was very helpful and friendly. We did not experience any problems during our stay!
