Purchased in 2008 by successful entrepreneur Bob Williamson, the property’s breathtaking beauty continues to be enhanced by the Williamson family. Williamson, who lives on the property, decided the plantation was simply too magnificent and valuable a regional treasure to keep it private, and decided to offer limited public access — providing that it could be accomplished without adversely affecting the pristine quality of the property.
This is without a doubt one of the most beautiful places in North Florida and could easily be a state or national park. The plantation encompasses some 4,700 acres, featuring its namesake Honey Lake, a spectacular 80-acre private lake that is one of the most gorgeous natural spring-fed lakes in all of North Florida and South Georgia. It is truly an outstanding gem in the region. The lake offers spectacular fishing and is teeming with largemouth bass and various species of bluegill, crappie, and other game fish. Unlike most lakes in this area, it is a clear, deepwater lake directly connected to the Florida Aquifer.
An enormous variety of habitat and wildlife fills Honey Lake Plantation, giving it a diversity not often found on most plantations. Vast acres of classic red-clay quail country — with rolling hills, 40-year old pines and sweeping native grasses — flows through the heart of the plantation. This is complemented with over 3½ miles of frontage on
Fish and game and otherwise rare wildlife are exceedingly abundant throughout, thanks in no small measure to the plantation’s carefully orchestrated conservation efforts, which include over 100 planted wildlife-feeding plots, dove fields, floodable duck ponds, and six well-fed, large fish ponds.
