Why Georgianna Strode chose Florida

This house was originally my great-grandmother's. It was built in 1932 in Quincy, Florida and was moved to Lake Talquin in the 1960s. My grandparents lived there and they loved it! They had an organic garden for decades. Granddaddy made unique items in his shop and Grandma landscaped the property.

What makes this house unique

This house has much of the original charm -- the 5-panel doors, original door handles, hardwood floors -- the original farm kitchen sink is still there but it's moved to the utility room.

Relaxing and Quiet Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a few days at this perfect hidden gem. Even though it was just my husband, I and our fur babies if you have a larger family there is tons of space for all. Loved all the pictures and especially that doc to sit and relax on. My husband fished every evening and early morning and I had my camera out to capture the famous white squirrel. I did indeed by the end of our stay get a picture of him/ her. Such a great family home to share. I would most certainly recommend this place to anyone looking to relax and get away.

Comfortable and welcoming home

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this cottage and enjoyed its cosy and welcoming atmosphere. It's very well-presented with lots of family keepsakes, and is clearly much loved. The porch is a good place to sit and look out over the lake and there are lots of comfortable spots throughout the house to curl up and read. We stayed there during a hurricane and couldn't explore as much of the area as we'd hoped, but felt very safe and secure in the house and the friendly owner arranged for some helpful neighbours to call and make sure we had everything we needed. We would recommend a stay here for a relaxing few days.

Owner's Response: We are glad that you enjoyed your stay (in spite of Hurricane Hermine) and hope that the rest of your trip gives you better weather! It was a pleasure talking to you on the phone before and after the storm and I am sorry that we did not have a chance to meet in person. Wishing you the best for the remainder of your trip.

Amazing and Relaxing week away!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is a perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle. The property is gorgeous, from the wild flowers, the beautiful view of Lake Talquin, tons of wildlife and the beautifully kept house. I felt like I was visiting my grandparents with the quaint cottage and it had everything we needed. We ate almost every meal outside on one of the porches enjoying the views and even though it was the middle of July the shaded property kept us very comfortable. The fishing off the dock was great. We especially enjoyed having our fur-babies with us for this trip and we greatly appreciate you so generously allowing pets to share the property. We can't wait to come back next year!
