Wonderful Experience!!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely love this place. This time around, we got to see 7 deer on the property, 3 foxes, and the different species of birds, from blue jays, to red cardinal. It was just an amazing time.

Home away from city chaos.

  • 5 of 5

This is our third time staying here. We absolutely love it which is why we come back! Most of the time we stay home and fish, canoe, make smores, play pool, and relax. We also spent a day at Ichetucknee Springs.

The home is complete with everything you need. It's very clean, and comfy. They also provide boards games (we LOVE Moods). There is a chair swing outside that is a big HIT with our children!

My family and I are forever grateful that you've opened up your home and allowed us to create lifelong memories. We hope to be able to come back again next year!

Sincerely,

The Steinberg family

Paradise on the Suwannee

  • 5 of 5

The property is beautiful, and the house was clean and had everything we needed. Karen and Kendall were great to deal with. We had fun canoeing and fishing on the Suwannee. We came a long way, and was definitely well worth the trip from Ontario, Canada

Nice place to relax

  • 5 of 5

The house is clean and well equipped, the view is awesome, unfortunately I got sick and did not visit places as I planned, I ended going to an emergency room, fortunately the place was perfect for the much needed rest, birds of all kind, nights give you the opportunity to look at the skies, I really enjoyed my stay

Perfect getaway.

  • 5 of 5

We are a retired couple, looking for a quiet, secluded home in the country. It was perfect for the two of us. We couldn't ask for more.

We already have returned for five days with our family including two small grandchildren.

It was wonderful for the adults to get so far away from the hectic pace of work, home, and family. It was a great experience for the one yr old and the four yr old grandchildren to spend time by the river and dock, swings, hunting for firewood for the firepit and s'mores. Lots of yard to run and play, and they enjoyed the game activities downstairs.

The home was roomy and comfortable for all. Everything we needed, and more, was there and handy. Loved the balcony and rockers. Great views.
