The best of Old Florida awaits with this stunning 60 acre retreat at Winquipin Lake in beautiful Gilchrist County. Stress and worry fade away as you enter through the center of a Florida Stewardship Pine Forest, and the cracker house, guest house and entertainment building come into view surrounded by centuries old Live Oak hammocks on the edge of the lake. Relax on the porch swing and watch wild turkeys, deer, gopher turtles and other wildlife, or wander down to the lake and catch the main course for a fish fry. Built from locally sourced heart pine, cypress and black cherry, the cracker house and guest house offer all the charm of days gone by with the comfort and conveniences of today. The entertainment building features a cook shed, half bathroom, screened dining area and plenty of space to enjoy time with family and friends. A separate barn provides ample storage for equipment, vehicles and boats. Located less than a 45 minute drive west of Gainesville and the University of Florida, Winquipin is located near Florida’s Nature Coast, dozens of crystal clear springs and the world famous Suwannee River. The charming town of Trenton offers shopping and restaurants, and memberships are available at the nearby Gilchrist Club.
