Your Lake Talquin Real Estate Resource
Located only ten miles west of the Tallahassee city center, Lake Talquin offers residents the feel of full-time vacation life. Enjoy fishing, boating, or kayaking from your private dock or one of the seventeen public boat ramps and fishing piers located on the lake. If you are seeking superb wildlife viewing, 12,000 acre Lake Talquin is your ideal location, with over 100 species located in the area. Herons, egrets, bald eagles, osprey, deer, river otters, and turtles could be regular visitors to your back yard. The lake is also known for its world class crappie fishing, with sizeable populations of largemouth and striped bass, catfish, and panfish. After a day on the lake, drive or boat to the legendary Whippoorwill Sportsman’s Lodge for five-star dining and craft beer in a casual lakeside atmosphere. Nearby is Ingram’s Marina, where boaters can fill their gas tanks and campers can stock up on basic supplies at the general store.
The 4th of July is a much-anticipated event on the lake, where neighbors come together on their boats to socialize and watch spectacular fireworks displays. But really, every evening on the lake is worth celebrating, when members of the Talquin community can relax, sip a cool drink, and watch the sunset while enjoying the beauty of the lake.
Homes on Lake Talquin range from small, quaint cottages to large, modern estates, providing a residence for every taste and price point. While many homes come with lake frontage, much of the shoreline is designated as part of Lake Talquin State Park and is currently undeveloped.
Ft. Braden PreK-8 school serves students on the Leon County side of the lake.
If you desire a relaxed, outdoor lifestyle that provides a daily respite from the stress of everyday life, Lake Talquin could be the location of your perfect home.
