Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect setting for our family reunion. Plenty of room for everyone to spread out when they needed to and lots of space to congregate as well. Terri was terrific to work with. I'd encourage anyone to make this property your "home away from home".

Cute Cute Cute!

  • 5 of 5

Very spacious & welcoming home! We loved sitting outside in the morning with coffee as we observed the wildlife. The kids loved swimming in the pool. It was the perfect spot as our family prepared for my daughter’s wedding at one of the nearby plantation venues. Terri is lovely & a wonderful hostess!

Wonderful Weekend Definitely

  • 5 of 5

Staying at this home was awesome! My son was able to enjoy his 15th birthday party with family and friends. Terri, the host, was also awesome and opened her complete home to us and gave us a tour of everything, which made us feel home. I will definitely be renting again and recommend anyone who would like to get away and enjoy a group setting in or near Tallahassee to do the same!!
