Would you like to visit a place where you have the chance to observe otters, squirrels, alligators, deer, raccoons, woodpeckers, blue herons, hummingbirds, cormorants, fish, and many other species of Florida wildlife in their natural habitats? And, you can do this from the comfort and safety of an observation deck or dock over the river.

St. Mark’s Retreat is a very special place. It is quaint and comfortable in a natural setting. It is not too far from the heart of Tallahassee but far enough away that you feel the peace and quiet. There is plenty of good local eateries...More

Great location right on a beautiful river with abundant bird watching opportunities. Very quiet, surrounded by woods. The cabin is cozy and has a large deck and screened porch.

About the neighbourhood
St.. Marks Retreat is located near the St. Marks Wildlife Refuge which is one of the 50 best places to go birding in the winter months where you can see a great variety of birds who winter at the Refuge.. Wakulla Springs is also a short drive from the Retreat. If you want to see natural Florida at its best, you will want to visit Wakulla Springs and take a ride on the jungle boat or the glass bottom boat. Have lunch or dinner at the Springs or take a hike on one of the many hiking trails. The Tallahassee to St. Marks Bike trail is a must for those who enjoy riding their bikes on a paved easy trail. Natural Bridge State Park is close to the Retreat where a major battle was fought during the Civil War.
Getting around
You must have your own personal car to get around. The Retreat is in the country on the St. Marks River. There is no public transportation that is close to the Retreat.
