What makes this house unique

Hear the birds and the river flow while you sip coffee on the porch in the morning. The deer drink from the river, the otters play, and sometimes you even see manatees.

Clancy Clan connected at the River House!!

  • 5 of 5

This was the first group/family vacation spot where the entire family was able to gather and connect! We absolutely enjoyed it from 1 year olds and teenagers to elderly all ages! Friends and family drove in during the day and we had a amazing time at your river house! We believe that because there is limited connection/ cell service it allowed us to connect with one another so much more..truly magical! The Clancy Clan cannot wait to come back and stay even longer! Thank you Jim and Janet for your hospitality..and being just a phone call away when we needed you. ~Cheryl Clancy

River House

  • 3 of 5

This area is quite beautiful and for nature lovers it is a wonderful experience but we were disappointed with this particular house. While the furnishings are adequate the overall impression is rundown and worn out. There are holes in the walls, the carpet is threadbare and the furniture looks like it came from secondhand store. The house has been cleaned superficially. I would return to this area but not this house.

Owner's Response: And we don’t have “room service” or candy on the pillows. If you are looking for a 5 STAR on a busy bustling strip, you probably won’t enjoy our river house. But on the other hand, if you enjoy nature, like to relax in a comfortable, clean 4 bedroom 2 bath house with a private dock on the banks of the Ichetucknee River nestled under grand daddy oaks; watch the manatees and otters feed and play, deer & wild turkeys drink from the river; like to swim, tube, snorkel, kayak or canoe; be away from everything, but yet close to several small towns; cook hamburgers and steaks on a charcoal grill, or just sit on the porch or deck, listen to the hoot owls talk back and forth at night, and just relax, you’ll probably love the river house. You can’t please everybody every time, but you can please most people, most of the time and we try. Jim & Janet

Great river house!

Just spent a couple nights at the "otter house" (our name for it) with some good friends. Love this place! Hated to leave. Can't wait to come back again!

What a great home and incredible value!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a family of 8 traveling to Fort White to celebrate our Father's 90th birthday, Jim & Janet's home helped us make the entire 4 day stay a true family event!!! The house is HUGE! Much bigger than we expected and so clean and inviting!! The river is an added bonus, as well as the outside living areas!!! We had everything we could have possibly needed to make us feel at home - we cooked dinners for 16 with no shortage of plates, utensils, pots or pans!! Much more than we ever anticipated and SUCH a beautiful setting! Thank you Jim & Janet!!! Lu Ann & Pete Halonski and family
