About Jennifer Barrass
If you were to meet me, you may be struck by my accent, as I am half-American / half-British and there is NO telling how my words are going to come out. Even I have no idea how I’m going to pronounce things as I say them! Ha! Half of my adult life was spent in Northern England and yes, I married a Brit. Originally from Louisiana, I moved to England in 1998 and spent until 2014 there. It was great, but I also missed living in the ‘Deep South’! Not only do I run Woodlands Guesthouse on Airbnb, but I also own my own (woman owned!) business, which I run from home. It is called The Organic Handkerchiefs Company. I sell mostly on Amazon, but also have my own website. I do sell organic hankies, both in cotton and flannel, and in various sizes and colors. I started this company from the UK in 2007 and it is still flourishing! Living close to nature and trying to be an eco-responsible citizen is very important to me. I try to use organic and/or natural products as much as I can. This is an area that always has room for improvement, but, hey, life’s a journey! In my spare time, I like yoga, meditation and playing guitar. I also like to read books and also love bingeing on Netflix once I find a show that I really like! My life motto is 'Be the Change'.
Jennifer Barrass purchased this Guest House in 2014
Why Jennifer Barrass chose Woodland Drives
I love trees! The canopy roads in Tallahassee - the mighty oaks with moss hanging off them - is the most beautiful sight! The city has everything you would ever want and so close to our house! We love the screened in pool and lake view of the property! It is really quiet in our historic neighborhood. A great beach is only 30 minutes south from us.
What makes this Guest House unique
My favorite part of the guesthouse is the private balcony overlooking very tall trees and a small lake. The sun shining through in the mornings while the birds sing and having a big mug of coffee really sets the up the day! The evenings are wonderful when the sun is setting and the owls come out and the white geese on the lake are serenely making their way around and with a glass of wine, this is a magical moment!

What a delightful place to stay! This was our first Vrbo experience. Everything we needed was there. Very quiet and peaceful. Loved natural woodsy feeling. We hope to be able to come back!
Good weekend stay
Very clean and cozy upstairs room. Everything a guest would need. Would have loved the “king size” bed, but it was 2 twins pushed together which didn’t allow for any snuggle time without laying in a hole. Bathroom and shower very clean and well organized but shower is extremely small and was difficult to shower without curtain sticking to me. A curved rod would possibly take care of this issue. Great stay other than those 2 down sides.
Beautiful and relaxing
Excellent stay at Woodlands Guesthouse
My husband and I had a wonderful 2 night stay during Family Weekend at FSU. The location was great and price was more than fair. It was easy to get around to restaurants, FSU campus, and my son’s apartment. The room was spacious, quiet, and had anything you would need for a weekend getaway. I enjoyed the fluffy white towels and the bed was extremely comfortable as well as the soft sheets. The A/C worked well which was a good thing because it was quite hot in Tallahassee during our stay. The owner was communicative with the necessary details and available if there were any questions but not intrusive if you wanted privacy. I would highly recommend Woodlands Guesthouse and wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again.
This was our first time booking a VRBO rental in the Tallahassee area, we usually just stay in hotels, but the entire experience was great. Jennifer the owner was very communicative and made sure that we were all set up for our stay well ahead of time. Check in and check out was easy and the area was beautiful.
Nice and quiet
This place was perfect for our mother and son getaway. We spent hours in the pool playing basketball and making up other games. Also, the area was great! So much to do. We look forward to a return visit in the fall!!
