One-half hour due southward of Tallahassee. Pristine gem of "Old Florida." Elegant 1930's inn. Southern foods offered, reasonably priced, at the stunning dining room. Amazing springs - with awesome river-boat trips offered. Don't miss this!

I took my children for a day trip and we had an amazing time. On the boat tour we saw all sorts of wild life including manatees. The kids loved swimming. It was just really nice and relaxing.
