This is a true "Old Florida" cottage, completely, yet tastefully renovated so as to keep it's 1940's charm. When you drive up to the rustic picket fence you will see one of Florida's treasures- Western Lake- one of a handful of Coastal Dune Lakes found only in this small stretch of coast and no where else in the world! Seriously. Over 300 feet of shoreline is yours to enjoy. The cottage has never been a rental before, only family. When you walk in the front door- look to your left, they have signed the wall on visits for nearly 60 years. You are invited to do so also, please just keep it short. The screened porch faces the lake and runs end to end. Just sit back or lay down, its real quiet. The old town of Grayton Beach Circa 1890 is only a block away and so are the world famous beaches. You can Kayak to the beach also, as Coastal Dune Lakes are unique in that they lead right up to the waves. Try out the Red Bar restaurant, D&Ks, or Pandoras they are all in Old Grayton. If you want to hear a sensational Jazz band, The Red Bar's is world class. Seaside is about a mile away and maybe you'll see Truman there, that's where they made the movie. Shop, catch an outdoor concert or play, dozens of restaurants-that's Seaside, a very unique community. When your done with all that head back and have an outside fire and roast marshmallows.

We figured if you are going to the beach why not go to the very best.
Old Grayton Beach is such a romantic place to get away from it all, yet... have it all. Nestled on one of only a handful of Coastal Dune Lakes found in the whole world, at this cabin you will not see tourists, you won't hear cars but... you will hear mullet jumping, a Great American Blue Heron named CoCo crowing and you'll see Osprey, ducks, Kingfisher, Coots, Sandpipers, Gulls, Pelicans...you're probably getting the picture.
In this remote part of the Emerald Coast you can walk to at least 5 restaurants, including the world famous Red Bar. Here you can sit on couches and listen to an amazing Jazz ensemble, eat from an eclectic seafood menu or hang out at the Bar (during the Summer it becomes a street party). Pandora's is quite the experience also with nightly live music and the highest quality steaks, prime rib and seafood. The futuristic community of Seaside is about a mile down Scenic 30-A with it's outdoor venues and artist community. Jim Carrey's movie "The Truman Show" was filmed entirely in this one of a kind pedestrian friendly enclave.
