The Space

This listing is for an entire home – the first and second floor of a well decorated charming country home in a rural, natural setting. There are three bedrooms: one very large bedroom is located downstairs overlooking the water with a king size select comfort bed and a private full bath which has been recently updated in travertine with a large walk in rainfall shower and a large soaking tub.
Two more large bedrooms are located upstairs with new queen size posteurpedic beds and a shared Jack and Jill full bath as well as another full bath.

A fourth bedroom is available for additional fees and groups over 8. Let us know if you would like access to our extra overflow room which can sleep up to 4 to 6 small kids or 3 big kids.

Our home is not an appropriate location for events such as bridal or baby showers, family reunions or weddings. Thanks for understanding and respecting our policy regarding events.

The house has a large open floor plan with a very large living room and adjacent dining room and kitchen downstairs and a sitting area upstairs. Plenty of windows provide beautiful views of the water from most rooms in the house. There is a TV and DVD players in the living room (sorry, only broadcast TV, no cable). Wifi is available by request for a fee. Kitchen is available for food preparation- full fridge, stove, oven, microwave, pots, pans, dishes, cutlery, etc. Rocking chairs and a hammock on the wrap around porches provide areas to sit or lie down and enjoy this uniquely wild setting with all the comforts of home.

Our low country home located adjacent to the Intracoastal Waterway and in an amazing natural setting inside the Timucuan Historic and Ecological Preserve. You will feel as though you are traveling back in time as you follow a historic canopied road approaching this uniquely beautiful home site. If you seek "privacy" and tranquility you will find it here, but you are still just minutes away from Amelia Island and Jacksonville. Come enjoy a truly unique and pristine wilderness spot that is still convenient to city life. If you would love to intimately experience the outdoors but are not into sleeping bags and tents this is about as good as it gets. Hiking boots and daypacks or kayaks and paddles to start the day, a full day adventure, followed by a hot shower or a soak in the large soaking tub, AC/heat, TV and internet, and an adult beverage before hitting the hay in a clean soft bed. Rain on the tin roof just adds to the charm and ambiance. Gourmet dining a short drive away.

Adventure awaits:
-Our 3 acre home site is a refuge to some of the resident wildlife including white tail deer, sea otter, and American bald eagles, (and many other bird species located along the Eastern Flyway). Talbot I State Park is also the location of one of the Great Florida Birding and Wildlife Trails ((website hidden)).

-Five miles of continuous beaches on Little Talbot Island State Park is a short 5 minute drive away. Hiking, kayaking, bicycling, fishing, bird watching, anything involving the outdoors is located right off the back porch. Ten miles of paved bike paths on the East Coast Greenway, hiking trails through pristine coastal hammock country, numerous historic sites including Kingsley Plantation, Fort Clinch, Amelia Island Museum, Fort Caroline, etc.

-Just a short 8 minute drive to Huguenot Memorial Park- one of the last beaches in Florida that allows beach driving. No need to carry loads of beach stuff. Just drive in, park, unload, have fun.

-Amelia Island State Park is also close by- a great beach that also allows beach driving. It’s also a great fishing spot.

-Bring your kayak or canoe (or rent one at Kayak Amelia just 5 minutes away) and paddle miles of remote tidal estuaries in the Timucuan Preserve.
