Why Chancey Sheffield chose North West Florida

We were looking for a quiet get away from our busy lives in Tallahassee. Silver Lake is a close yet far enough away location to find peace and relaxation.

What makes this cabin unique

The most beautiful sunsets as we are facing directly west. Crystal clear pure water with white sandy bottom. No loud motor boats. Abundant wildlife!

Loved everything cabin had of offer

  • 5 of 5

Arrived on Thanksgiving after planning a very last minute long weekend. I did all the corresponding with Chancy over email and she was absolutely great dealing with all my questions. She was always quick to answer all my questions and I had a lot with planning the cabin with only 2 days before Thanksgiving. Everything was perfect and as listed. The home has a large front and back yard to roam. The beds were comfy as all the furniture was very nice and easy to relax and watch tv or read a great book. The entire home was absolutely spotless and everything needed was supplied. Deposit was returned very quickly and no issues in returning full amount. If you like what you see and it's the area you want to be in, I suggest you book this rental because it will not disappoint in any way. Lots of nature close by and well worth the time to check out. Thanks Chancy for helping me with all last minute details it was a great rental experience.

Can't wait to go back!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family fled the East coast of Florida during Hurricane Matthew, to this beautiful cabin on Silver Lake. The view was absolutely incredible, the water was crystal clear and the overall experience was perfect. They have 2 kayaks, a paddle board, canoe and john boat you can use, so everyone was able to have fun together. All the TV's were smart TV's, making entertaining the kids at night a breeze. We loved that the 2nd room had 2 larger beds instead of twins and the master had an extremely comfy king. We feel in love and are looking forward to booking it again in the future.

Beautiful View and the location worked great for us

  • 5 of 5

The cabin on Silver Lake was perfect for our family trip. It slept 6 comfortably and had all the amenities of home. We loved swimming off the dock there and the view of the lake at sunset was amazing!
