New!! Take a look at our video!! (The icon is in upper left of the photo box.)
Spend a relaxing vacation in a very quiet private apartment on the entire first level of our personal home, overlooking Eastern Lake. This spacious living area is nestled in a grove of scrub oaks, on a bluff overlooking a lovely coastal dune lake, less than two miles east of Seaside. The Gulf of Mexico is less than a hundred yards away.
You can venture to the beach with a short walk down the boardwalk at the end of the street, or you can cruise in an old canoe through the inlet, which is where most of the natives here go to play. Deer Lake State Park is less than 1 mile to the east. All Scenic 30-A has pedestrian bicyle and walking paths. WaterSound and Rosemary Beach
are within 6 miles to the east. This is located in a quiet, nice old Florida
neighborhood south of 30-A on the Eastern Lake, with restaurants, shops, golfing, and bike rentals nearby.

Realtor with Scenic Sotheby's and husband is in the construction business along the beach!
Nina McCaslin-Horn and Garrett Horn purchased this house in 2003
Garrett Horn, built this home under the scrub oak trees on his family land. This is just a special spot. Unique Florida Cottage with interesting landscape paths along side of home which leads visitors to their private entry on the lakeside.
Being South of 30A and located on the Eastern Lake, which is a coastal Dune Lake is very rare. There are maybe only a couple of other locations in our world that boast having over 7 Coastal Dune Lakes on a stretch of 21 mile long beach road. This is a peaceful and beautiful place to live and enjoy God's creation!
We loved getting to know Nina and Garrett! Garrett has written a book called "Postcards of Seagrove" about this area he grew up in. It's a great read! Our boys (1,2) loved the playhouse and pirate ship! Our 2 year old called it his home! It's a great location to get to the bike trails where you can ride to Watercolor and Seaside or Rosemary and Alys Beach. We loved having access to the Eastern Lake and ocean! Thanks for a great weekend for our family!
Nina and Garrett have excellent accommodations and are the sweetest people! Our 4 year old daughter had a blast exploring the playhouse and pirate ship! It was perfect for the 3 of us and had everything we needed! Decorated beautifully and very clean! The location is awesome! We loved filling up the canoe and paddling our gear to the beach. We spent time playing in both the lake and beach, caught crabs, hunted for shells, and just relaxed! We definitely hope to visit this wonderful cottage again!
This is a great location for the kids to play in the nearby inlet of Eastern Lake. You can literally walk and play in the knee deep water of the inlet or access the beach adjacent to the lake. The room is a comfortable 1 bedroom for the adults and there is a bunk bed in the main living room for the kids. This is a great location if you are looking to have good access to Seaside, Rosemary or the beach areas in between.
Loved coming back to stay at Nina and Garrett's home! Always such a fun time for my family! Great accommodations! Thanks again!!
We just returned from a dream trip to the beach! The house was just perfect for our family. It is beautifully decorated in a beachy theme. And we loved everything outside too- the covered porch with a swing, a pirate ship for the kids to play on, private deck, dock overlooking the lake, plus a canoe to use! The queen bed was so comfortable with lush linens. Our kids loved the bunk beds too and said they were very comfortable. We loved playing dominoes at the large kitchen table at night. We rented bikes and rode everywhere. The house is in close proximity to everything! My husband and son would load up the canoe with all of our beach stuff and row down to the inlet to the beach- a very short distance. My daughter and I would ride our bikes down to the boardwalk to meet them, just a few houses down the road. Having the lake and beach at the same time was so cool! We would ride our bikes to get afternoon snacks and we could easily ride our bikes through Seagrove and be in Seaside in about 10 minutes. It was honestly quicker to bike than to drive there at dinner time. The dock was such a peaceful place to just sit and watch the sunrise or gaze down the inlet to the ocean. The homeowner made sure we had everything we needed. We had full access to a shed full of beach toys and equipment, although we used our own items. But there was plenty in there to choose from. It was such a quiet and peaceful place. We cannot wait to stay here again! I would recommend Of Days Gone By to anyone I know! Thanks for a great week!!!
I'd recommend staying here to anyone & everyone. You have the best of both world here having Eastern Lake & the gulf. I'll be back next yr & the next.
Seaside is only a few miles to the west, Rosemary Beach is about 4 miles to the east! Best place to be in the middle! Deer Lake State Park is within quick bike ride or walk https://mail.google.com/mail/ca/u/0/#inbox/14c449f37973320a?projector=1
