I have been recruiting in the Atlanta area for over thirty years. I love to travel and enjoy cooking , music and the arts. I love dogs and have two Jack Russel Terrorists who go everywhere with me.

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.

A relaxing retreat

  • 5 of 5
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.

Spring Vacation at Lake Mystic

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Innisfree. Thank you, Nina, for sharing your piece of paradise with us. Truly, it is a home away from home. Your home is perfectly set with a gorgeous view of the lake and the sunsets! Walking to the dock each day to fish and sitting on the porch were some of our favorite spots. The peddle boat came in handy to venture around the lake.
We are looking forward to our next stay!

Innisfree

  • 5 of 5
We chose the Bristol area for our winter vacation because we wanted a rural experience away from the crowds. During the winter, southern Florida is rife with snowbirds and the coastal areas seem to have row after row of high-rise condos. But the central panhandle region is known as the old/forgotten Florida and it truly is a nature lover's paradise. If you're looking for a wilderness adventure, this is the place.
Bristol is a small village on the Apalachicola river with few businesses but you can get groceries, gas, and other essentials. We were here to commune with nature and were rewarded with myriad flora/fauna too numerous to list. We explored the marshes, beaches, and forests with our car, our bikes, and the owner's canoe. When we paddled the area creeks and rivers we felt like we were in the Amazon - wild and exotic.
A nice thing about the local creeks and rivers is that the slow current allows you to paddle in either direction, eliminating the need to spot a car. The waterways are so remote that you're unlikely to see cabins or other signs of civilization. Just what we wanted.
Nina's cottage, which she calls Innifree (after a poem by W.B.Yeats) was cozy with all the creature comforts one might need as well as an eclectic library of books, videos, and music CDs. The home is decorated with charming folk art and is only steps from the beach. If there is a downside, it's that the lake is lined with homes and cabins. But most of them seem to be "seasonal" dwellings and thus mostly unoccupied during the winter months. Even though populated, the lake was quiet and peaceful with very little activity.
We had a very pleasant stay and the property owner was charming and very attentive. If you're looking for a quiet, comfortable cottage in the woods on a beautiful lake, come to Innisfree.

I will arise and go now, and go to Innisfree,
And a small cabin build there, of clay and wattles made:
Nine bean-rows will I have there, a hive for the honey-bee;
And live alone in the bee-loud glade.
And I shall have some peace there, for peace comes dropping slow,
Dropping from the veils of the morning to where the cricket sings;
There midnight's all a glimmer, and noon a purple glow,
And evening full of the linnet's wings.
I will arise and go now, for always night and day
I hear lake water lapping with low sounds by the shore;
While I stand on the roadway, or on the pavements grey,
I hear it in the deep heart's core.
W.B. Yeats
