Come spend some time with the goats at Goat House Farm (and the chickens and a pig!).  Kayaking and hiking right off the property! Beautiful sunsets on the lake!

We are a located in a rural area of Tallahassee, along the Florida Big Bend Scenic Byway and surrounded by the beautiful Lake Talquin State Forest. Great fishing and hiking trails and beautiful sunsets. Two Trailwalkers and one Trailtrotter trail are just minutes away.  There is also a 10-mile Lines Bike Trail.  See trail maps in our photos!

We are located at the end of a bumpy 3/4 mile dirt road off Highway 20/Blountstown Hwy on the lake.  We are prone to road flooding after more than a couple of days of hard rain since the hurricane damaged the road!  We've filled recently the largest ruts with gravel and have several cars in the neighborhood that don't have a problem on the road, but - full disclosure! 

We are about twenty five minutes from FSU stadium - straight shot! We love to host parents and students!  Great weekend getaway!

Make yourself at home in our unique tiny cottage with kitchenette, private bath with shower, and heat/AC.  Luxury queen size bed.  We can add also a cot or queen mattress for two extra guests, but please check ahead of time to be sure we have one available!

Kitchenette is stocked with standard cooking supplies: spices, salad dressing, oil, and condiments as well as farm fresh eggs and produce.  Farm breakfast served on Saturdays.  TV, toaster oven, coffee pot, induction plate, and refrigerator are in the unit, along with kitchen essentials.  There is a microwave in the common area.  We also have a small outdoor kitchen area with grill, stove, utensils, basic cooking supplies (oil, salt, pepper, condiments) and picnic table.

Note, there are no windows in the cottage.  It was built originally as a storm shelter! You will sleep really well with the thick walls and no city lights! The private entryway does have windows that let some light into the room. 

Private and group goat yoga classes may be available during your stay, just ask us ahead of time!

Please try to arrive before dark.  Farm days end early and we are usually in bed by 9!

Pets are allowed for a $15 cleaning fee.  Please add your pets as an "extra guest" *third* (not infant) when you book. Please communicate with us that you are booking for a pet so we don't set up an extra bed! 

Things you should bring: Lighting for walking about (we will provide a lantern)Refillable water bottles Sunscreen if you plan to be out on the lakeBug Spray (we usually have a couple on hand) Please be aware that beginning in mid-May for about six weeks is yellow fly season in north Florida!Note: This is Florida and a rustic farmstay in the forest on a lake.  There are bugs and spiders on the property. One may even end up in the cottage. Due to a previous guest's complaint about finding a palmetto bug in one of our cabins, I thought I should make sure everyone knows it happens!  We love our charming cottage, but you should know this isn't an apartment in the city :)
