Likewise, local beaches are only 30 minutes away. This is an area of Florida that truly has it all!

The cottage is nestled on a 1/2 private wooded lot which is just a 4-minute walk to the gorgeous spring-fed Wakulla River, to the neighborhood 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.

The Wakulla River is lined with Bald Cypress trees and is the home to many resident manatees, river otters, Osprey, Bald Eagles, and resident as well as migratory waterfowl. Kayaks and bicycles are available for guest use upon request. During your stay at Hidden Cottage River Retreat, paddle the spring-fed river and look for manatees, alligators, and turtles. Or load up your fishing gear and fish from the dock or make a friend in the neighborhood who has a boat!

Want to stick close to the cottage? Grill out or read a book under an umbrella on the back yard deck that overlooks colorful perennial flowers, a meandering path, and a garden spot. Enjoy coffee or morning meditation from another a private deck that sits just off the kitchen, high among the trees, and overlooks a wooded walking path that winds through the woods along the side of the cottage.

The community sits along the Wakulla River which is fed by the second-largest spring of its type in the world. The spring is located in Ed Ball State Park which is a short 10 minutes drive from the cottage and is the scene from which many movies have been filmed such as Creature from the Black Lagoon and Tarzan.

The back part of the property has an unpaved driveway on which a boat/trailer or RV may be parked, though neither electricity nor plumbing is available to this area.

The cottage is located in a River Home neighborhood community that is home to many professionals from the Tallahassee area. Tallahassee is only a 25-30 minute scenic drive away.
