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.

Way better than expected.

This was a total surprise. The house is very spacious and accommodating. The view is breathtaking and inspiring. We felt so safe that our kids ran loose without any concern. We did a fire pit every night and cooked on the grill. There was so much to do but at the same time relaxing. We brought our own canoes and Kayaks and went up and down the river. One of our trips we put in at the house (Ichetucknee River) and went to Point park were we bathed in the river and had lunch, we then continued up the Santa Fe River to the Boat dock. It was great. You have to go to The Ichetucknees State Park and swim in the Blue Hole and Head Spring. Once in a lifetime experience (The experience is worth the cold water, Very Cold). Make sure you take goggles or a mask to see under water.

The house has everything you will need and was well stocked. There were even some seasoning and sugar for our use. If your picky about the taste of water bring water bottles but we mostly drank the well water and it was just fine. Thank you for sharing your home with us. Tt is definitely on the list of must return.

This is our third time staying at your beautiful home. We have always enjoyed it in the past and this time was no different. We really enjoy checking in and never leaving for the entire stay. We floated down the river several times and caught quite a few fish that we fried up for dinner and they were delicious. What a great place that you allow others to enjoy. Thank you for sharing your river home with others!

Family Fun

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our extended stay at the River's home on the Ichetucknee River. With extended families being so scattered about the country, it was great to find such a fun place for everyone to gather. The house is in a great location on the river, with waters slow and shallow enough for the young children to play. The screen porch on the second level overlooks the river and is a great spot to watch tubers going by, Our little fishing children really enjoyed being able to stand on the dock, drown some bait, and even catch a few small fish. The house is very comfortable, with a very large master suite separate from the other three bedrooms, an ample kitchen (fully supplied) and open concept living/dining/kitchen. Jim and Janet were very accommodating and responsive to our frequent requests. Jim even arrived the third day to install a custom hand rail for the short flight of stairs. He also arrived another day with his arms full of additional kitchen supplies. We are looking forward to another visit next summer!

Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time staying at Jim & Janet's River house. Every time we go it just gets better. The time our family spends here is so precious and we all just connect and get closer. We all swim and raft in the river for hours and then come up to the house and get warm and cozy and watch movies and cook a delicious meal. This year we had to reschedule as there was a tropical storm coming to the Ft. White area in the beginning of August, but Jim was so gracious to reschedule us to September. We have already booked again for next June!!!

WE LOVE THE RIVER HOUSE!!

Thanks again,

Jan & Dan McMillan
