About the property

3 BR, 2 BA home with porch, 2 private docks

Relax on the screened-in porch or hammock and enjoy the quiet days on the lake. Even on the busiest holidays there's rarely more than 8 boats on the water, leaving plenty of time to enjoy the solitude of the water while canoeing or fishing or relaxing with a good book. The house is decorated in French country shabby chic, and has been completely renovated top to bottom. Its very comfortable but not fancy, so Moms can relax! It has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, and a beach-like shoreline that is very shallow for little ones. Everything you need for a comfy vacation, especially a great A/C!

Lake Mystic

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation at Nancee's wonderful lake house was amazing. First of all, the lake was phenomenally clear and beautiful. It was shallow enough in places where my 6, 4,4, & 2 year olds could play and the older ones could fish. Our bunch caught bass. We also enjoyed the use of her canoe. The cabin itself is gorgeous. Nancee has impeccable taste and has the sweetest shabby nautical theme going on. There was an adorable furnished playhouse out back, just the right size for my girls to pretend they had there own lake house. Beds were great. Everything we needed was there. We really just wanted to become squatters and just stay, but obligations called. We'll definitely be back next season. Thanks, Nancee!

Fabulous Gem in Florida Panhandle!

  • 5 of 5

I loved our vacation in North Florida! The lake house was everything promised! Very cozy, quaint, comfortable, convenient. The house on Lake Mystic is an absolute undiscovered gem in North Florida. The home is truly right on a fishing, swimming, relaxing lake paradise. The home has large windows facing the water, a large beautiful lawn, and white sand on the lake's edge. We fished, we swam, we kayaked, we slept in the hammock under the tall whispering pines, we lounged and drank coffee and spirits on the very large screened in porch which also faces the lake with a grand view. The master bedroom has large windows facing the lake and it's own bathroom. Plenty of plush towels in both bathrooms. I can not say enough good about the location. Mind you this is a true North Florida lake house with freezing cold A/C! The kitchen had everything we needed and more. Plenty of parking! Two parents, a grandparent, and five children had a GREAT time here in the middle of July! I was able to relax because of the small town quiet atmosphere of Lake Mystic. My children were able to run and play in the very large lakeside lawn. The home has excellent cable/satelight/internet connections too. My children were so tired from playing outside I didn't hear much from them about tv or internet access, but when my mother wanted to watch her favorite TV show it was THERE! When we needed to check email the internet was THERE! Lake Mystic is very secluded in Liberty County, but the town of Bristol had everything we needed. The beaches are less than an hour away too, but honestly my kids enjoyed the lake more than the beaches. I know this may sound over the top, but it really is exactly what we experienced.

Panama City Beach, FL
Car: necessary

This property is situated on a small lake near the Apalachicola National Forrest and the Apalachicola River. The water is clear but not icy like most Florida springs and are teeming with bass and bream. Tubing down the clear, cool waters of Chipola River is only 40 minutes away in Marianna, FL, as well as Torreya State Park and the Florida Caverns. Turn in another direction and 35 minutes away from the doorway are the glass-bottom boat rides and swimming at Wakulla Springs where several Tarzan movies and The Creature From the Black Lagoon (a classic, no doubt) were filmed. Near Wakulla Springs you can also canoe down the Wakulla River that often is so clear you can touch manatees with your paddle. And of course head west from Lake Mystic to the beautiful beaches of Panama City, Destin and St. George Island.
