Peaceful, relaxing escape for the whole family

  • 5 of 5

The owners have thought of every little detail to make your stay here just perfect. The kitchen is stocked with all the pans and utensils you need, they even include coffee, filters, sugar and creamer! Bathrooms are stocked better than a nice hotel! It's a beautiful, cozy home that is so inviting after a day of playing outside in the big yards and canoeing down the river. Fishing poles, firepit with wood, yard games and indoor games. They have thought of everything!! I can't recommend this property enough. Such a gem!! We can't wait to come again someday :)

Great Suwannee Experience

  • 5 of 5

House was very comfortable and it met all our needs. We parked car and stayed for our three days. Canoeing and star gazing were our two favorite things. We also enjoyed the fire pit. Loved all the natural beauty of the river. Wonderful time and loved the old Florida feel.

The property was very nice and comfortable.

  • 4 of 5

The property was very nice and comfortable and the deck overlooking the suwannee was enjoyable and very relaxing. The property was clean and roomy and i enjoyed my stay. the property is secluded and very quiet. I was able to relax and enjoy some fishing from the floating dock. I would recommend this property if you want to get away and and relax with peace and serenity overlooking the majestic suwannee river.

Great time for all!

  • 4 of 5

We all enjoyed our stay on the Suwannee River from the 3 year old to Granddaddy at 61. The grandkids enjoyed swimming and of course the swing was the favorite. We made s'mores on the fire and fished from the dock. It was a great place to unwind. Thanks for opening your home to strangers.
