Why Stuart Reese chose Governor's Walk

The main house was built in 1929. The chalet was built in 2004.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"I stayed in Stuart and Robin's darling suite for 2 months this Fall. It was absolutely perfect. Clean, fresh, and decorated thoughtfully. It has everything you need and nothing you don't. I appreciated the private entry and courtyard, easy on-street parking, and the vibe of their great Midtown neighborhood. While the place is great, Stuart and Robin are even better. They are attentive but privacy-respecting hosts who went out of their way to make me welcome. They were incredibly responsive to any questions I had, and it felt like staying with family --only better. I hated to leave and hope to be back in Tallahassee regularly both to stay in the suite I adopted as my own, and to see Stuart and Robin, who are just all-around great people. I can't say enough about the place and their hospitality."

Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving. I'm on the way to Scotland tonight and am looking forward to bracing weather followed by total darkness by 3 pm. But it will be a gathering of some of my best friends and I'm sure it will be memorable.

I hope to be in Tallahassee for a couple days that middle week in December (the 14th?) Let me know if you will be around. I envision us sharing some holiday cheer at Clusters and Hops, which I miss desperately.

Cheers and thanks for keeping up our correspondence.

Grateful for your hospitality!

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I can't express our gratitude for the hospitality and welcome we received as we were in Tallahassee awaiting the expansion of our family with two newborn little boys! Stuart and Robin made sure we felt at home at one of the most gratifying and extraordinary points in our lives. The Chalet was absolute perfection and we could not have found a better place to bring our babies home! My in-laws stayed with us as well as our pups, and again - we never felt like we were traveling, but rather comfortable and cared for in so many ways.

If you are looking for an outstanding gem, in the center of Tallahassee, this is it! I aspire to be a host like Stuart and Robin and the work, passion, and dedication they have devoted to this property and their guests shines through!

Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts! We absolutely hope to be back as our sons age!

After selling our home in Tallahassee and moving north, we returned for our first Christmas and stayed here for the 18 days. We could not have been more pleased with the accommodations and the sincerity of the owners that we were comfortable. We enjoyed walking the neighborhoods, the ease of getting anywhere in town, the quaintness of the property and more. We highly recommend this place as "homeaway" from home.

Spectacular place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed here several times. Always very clean and roomy. Great places to sit outside including by the pool. Would never know you're in the middle of the city as it's like a mini resort but very private. Definitely the place to stay in Tallahassee.

Crown Jewel of Tally-You Can Absolutely Trust these Owners

  • 5 of 5

At the last minute, I needed to travel to Tallahassee for a night, but had some unique housing needs and some "wish lists" (mini refriderator, coffee pot, larger hotel room etc). My mother, who is in her mid 80's and I were coming to town to visit a relative, but much to our dismay I could not find any available hotel rooms or even a Bed and Breakfast? Unbeknowest to us, that weekend was student orientation for all incoming freshman students for FSU & FAMU! That means thousands of parents and teenagers had already booked accomodations months ahead. I took a chance on contacting the owner of this property and I am so glad I did. He responded immediately and was so understanding of what my last minute needs were. Also, his wife, Robin was so gracious when we arrived the next day and even had a basket of goodies for us to enjoy. The "chalet" is nestled in the corner of their beautiful piece of property and is a 2 bed/2 bath/full kitchen/living room/dining area. It was like a dream come true and more than anything we could have "wished for." It is almost brand new, impeccably clean, fully stocked with melt away comfortable beds. Thank you Mr/Mrs Reece for hosting us and we will be back!

Great Light and Privacy

  • 5 of 5

A sunny and pleasing place to spend time; bedrooms, dining area and living room all have southern exposure. Much privacy, outdoor eating area. Very convenient location to downtown, yet on a quiet street.

Great Tallahassee home

  • 5 of 5

This is the best secret in Tallahassee, a real find. My wife and I are retired in Montana but try to get out every winter for a month or so. We have used vacation rentals in New Mexico and California, but this is one of the best.

We chose Tallahassee this year in order to visit our son (an FSU student) and his family. The 2-BR chalet is a separate small house located on a private compound behind the owner’s house. The compound also includes a swimming pool, a private drive entrance, and a second vacation rental (1-BR). The chalet is protected by tall fences and vegetation, and has a beautiful redwood deck and patio with outdoor table and chairs for our exclusive use. If the weather permits, you can have private lunches or breakfasts beneath a canopy of large oak and smaller Florida fruit trees and lots of plants. The house is stylish, modern and sophisticated in its decor, and has lots of windows, making it nice and sunny. The beds are very comfortable.

Set in an older neighborhood in the desirable Mid Town section of Tallahassee, we were near the city center and university, but still a few blocks off the beaten track, secluded and quiet. The owners couldn’t have been nicer or more helpful, checking in with us to ensure we had everything we needed, and even providing a chalet cleaning service for only 50 dollars, which was excellent. We would rate the chalet A plus. We would love to stay here again, and plan to recommend it to our friends. We have found it to be the best short-term living opportunity in town. Our Siamese cat enjoyed it, too!
