About Brenda Honeycutt

I purchased this lot and cozy manufactured home for my mother's retirement. She loved every remaining minute of her life here and took great pride in her yard and flowers. Since she passed in 2012, I am offering the home as a vacation rental until I too can retire and enjoy the beautiful surroundings and fishing at Lake Talquin. I am originally from Dothan, AL, and I live nearby. I also have family living on Lake Talquin, and love to visit there during holidays.

Brenda Honeycutt purchased this house in 2006

Why Brenda Honeycutt chose Florida

In addition to the obvious waterfront advantages and boating and fishing opportunities, other site-seeing opportunities are close by, like the state capital, Wakulla Springs, Florida Caverns, and beaches are close enough for day outings on the beach.

My family lives down the road, and my retired cousin is the property manager to assist you if needed. The home is furnished with a number of old antique chifferodes and dressers from my great-grandparents, a bit scarred, but real special to me. No worries, they survived 100+ years already, so I trust they'll survive my guests just as well :-) My dependable handy man keeps the property in tip top condition, including the yards and flower beds, which is quite a task when you see the size of this lovely lot.

This home is only 40 minutes from Florida's State Capital in Tallahassee and Florida State University. Therefore, this is an ideal location for families to visit the capital, museums, etc., or visit students and attend events at FSU. Beautiful Wakulla Springs and the Florida State Caverns are nearby as well.

What makes this house unique

- On-site property manager to assist if needed.

- Fishing guides available for fishing or boating excursions.

- A public boat launch is located down the street at Whippoorwill's.

- Walk to Whippoorwill's and enjoy their waterfront restaurant and pub. Great opportunity to enjoy your beverages and walk (not drive) home.

- The State Capital and Florida State University (FSU) is only a 40 minute drive.

More than a fishing retreat.

  • 4 of 5

Very, very clean!! Lay out very functional. Found all amenities in working order. Master bedroom and bath very spacious.

Boat dock very helpful if you bring your own boat. Although guys were fishing, ladies had excellent trips to Havana, Thomasville, Bainbridge and of course Tallahassee.

Would recommend highly.

Owner's Response: Thank you! Yes, I always recommend Havana for the ladies. Such a cool place for us ladies to look at and shop for old stuff. Families with children like to also take a day trip over to the beach. Hope to have y'all become one of my repeat guests! Brenda

Lake Talquin and Talquin Tranquility is a wonderful place to stay. It has it's own dock and fish cleaning station. The cove is very close to all of the good fishing. The people in this area are very friendly. Be sure to check out Angeles Seafood it is excellent and very close by. It is a 10 for a wonderful place to relax.

A very clean and nice house on avery quiet location. The house has everything you need. The location is very quiet and there are a lot of birds to hear and see. There are also a lot of squirrels even white ones.

We like hiking and there are a lot of nice hikes nearby.

We enjoyed our stay.
