Description

Are you looking for a unique one-of-a-kind abode for a romantic, rustic rendezvous? This charming cabin is like a blast from the past, a trip out of time and could even be your own “little house on the prairie.”  However, in this case, you’re not on the prairie but right down the road from a shimmering sugar white beach beside the jeweled waters of the Gulf of Mexico near the original village center of Grayton Beach!  This enchanting historic cabin is one of the original early cottages of 'Old Grayton Beach' established sometime in the 1880's.  It is an intimate comfy cottage that’s ideal as a time forgotten getaway place for a loving couple to create wonderful memories in the here and now.  Shepherd Cottage has been updated with a new kitchen, central heat and air, comfortable furnishings and a new queen-sized bed while preserving its original character. It’s nestled among towering pines, clusters of palmetto palms and other natural indigenous plantings.  

A gracious front porch spans across the front of this vacation home, which includes a hanging wooden swing decorated with carved hearts and a couple of rocking chairs. Twin Adirondack chairs sit in the yard where you may also relax in this lovely serene setting. Wide double glass French doors lead inside from the porch into a living area with original hardwood flooring brightened by lots of windows on three sides and some canned lighting above. A vibrant oriental rug on one side of the room has a cozy seating ensemble with a comfortable couch, some antique chairs, and two leather topped ottomans that serve as tables for drinks or snacks. They face a large TV mounted upon an old cargo trunk beside a vintage dresser with a mirror. The other side of the room has a round maple table beneath a candled chandelier with four dark, stylish antique chairs that sit on another Oriental rug near an old hutch. The ample country kitchen has white cottage cabinetry adorned with antique décor on their tops. An electric stove with an oven is on one side of this open area that has deep twin farm sinks in the center beside a double window for light and a small refrigerator along with a microwave on the other side.

There is a queen sized bed with a decorative metal headboard in the sleeping quarters that resembles a small sunroom. The bathroom has a classic pedestal sink and a walk-in glass shower. A raised deck in the back has an outdoor shower to rinse off after the beach and a table with chairs for drinks or dining al fresco.

You can walk to the old village center of Grayton to buy a unique decorative memento at the funky Zoo Gallery, enjoy great food and drinks with live music at the famous Red Bar or go to Chiringo for Spanish style tapas. Abundant restaurants, beach bars, specialty shops, free concerts and seasonal festivals are minutes away throughout South Walton in towns like Seaside. You may rent bicycles at a General store up the road and travel on paved paths to any of these picturesque coastal villages this scenic route. Enjoy your rustic, romantic adventure!
