Nina Allison purchased this house in 1985
My Father, an avid outdoorsman, bought this property in 1954 . He was awestruck by the crystal clear water of the lake and the great Bass fishing and hunting in the area . He was fascinated with the Aquifer in Florida and loved it's many prisitne lakes and springs. My Mother moved here full-time in the 70's and worked as a Nurse in the neighboring town of Blountstown. She is known throughout the area as 'Miss Bertha' and for calling out the fish : 'Here fishy- fishy ' . As a crowd of fish would gather, she fed them cracker mush with a baby bottle. They took it greedily. Yes, I have pictures. I am known as 'Miss Nina' , Miss Bertha's daughter.
I so enjoy being so close to so many natural attractions. Cape San Blas, St. George's Island, ST. Marks, Wakulla Springs, Florida State Caverns and Mexico Beach to name a few. The Apalachicola Oysters are world famous for a reason. It is a joy to catch fish from such pristine waters as Lake Mystic because you can eat what you catch with no worries about chemicals or other toxins. It is commonplace to have the magnificent Bald Eagles land in the pine trees right outside the screend porch and to wake to a four foot tall Great Blue Heron standing on the dock gazing down into the clear water at his next meal.
We had a perfect view of the lake. The house was very comfortable and all the kitchen crockery we needed was there. Host was available by text and replied very fast to my questions. We did assume we could put our boat in the water. There is no public ramp at lake and none at the property. We were lucky in that there are kind neighbors at home who helped us out. Still, we were lucky. If a beige lab comes over, that's Sawyer. A neighbor and best dog EVER:-)
I love this vacation spot. My husband, granddaughter and I spent hours swimming in the warm water. Nina is a wonderful hostess. The home is clean and comfortable. Every thing you need is available. Thank you so much, Nina, for a wonderful time. I hope to return.
This waterfront home on Lake Mystic is the perfect place for a family or couple to enjoy a beautiful trip and time together. It is decorated and maintained to give you the feeling of a "Home away from Home". The porch overlooking the lake is the ideal spot to enjoy your morning coffee, refreshing snacks or meals as well as a relaxing beverage at days end. All the modern conveniences makes your stay a very enjoyable one. This private lake and location affords you a restful and relaxing place that you will want to visit again.
We stayed a week and it was by far the best vacation we have ever taken! The lake is beautiful and the fish were huge! We saw several huge soft shell turtles as well! We enjoyed the house as well. It has everything you need plus! Thanks Ms. Nina!!! We will be back every year!
Great get away. Beautiful home over looking an awesome lake. Plenty of
Swimming, sunning and fishing. Highly recommended. This was my second
Visit and I am looking forward to the third.
This is the perfect lake house. The setting is stunning with views from a large covered and screened porch and the living room. The length of the house has a covered porch to grill, sit, etc.and that leads to a dock extending over the lake. The water was so clear and felt wonderful to swim in. We enjoyed sitting on the dock and watching the stars which were so bright away from city lights. A hammock awaits in the yard. A paddle boat and canoe are available. The house is two bedrooms but accommodated 2 adults and 3 kids as there is a trundle in the second bedroom and a sleeper couch. The house is decorated with taste and a touch of whimsy. It is very appealing, unique, and inviting. Movies, books, games, umbrellas; really anything and everything you might need for comfort and lazy days and evenings. The kitchen is incredibly well stocked and we had nicer pots and kitchen accoutrements than I have in my own home. We enjoyed walking around the lake in the mornings. There are numerous outings within an hour and a bit; we went to several beaches; Grayton was our favorite even though it was farther than Mexico beach (the closest). Grayton has the crystal clear, acquamarine water we love. The bugs are Florida bugs, not terrible, but very present; we always wore OFF in the evenings if we were outside. The bright side of the bugs is that every evening the Cicadas serenade you. We loved listening to them as we sipped red wine and watched the sun set on the sparkling waters. Ahhh... It doesn't get much better than that! Thank you, Nina. A truly magical place.
