Fun House on the Santa Fe River

Bedrooms 3
Space 1,500 sq. ft.
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

3 bedrooms, 3 baths on two acres with lot of waterfront and private dock.

This beautiful riverfront house is situated on the banks of the Santa Fe River with a private dock. The property is located in a wooded waterfront community with its own boat ramp on the Santa Fe and dock to the Ichetucknee river. This area of the Santa Fe is perfect for swimming, tubing, canoeing, kayaking, snorkeling, fishing, and boating. Yes bring your boat and tie-up at our private dock. There are also 4 kayaks and one canoe on the property for your use. Upstairs includes two bedrooms,one queen and one full, two baths one with claw foot tub. Great room and fully stocked (not food)kitchen and large outdoor deck with grill. Downstairs: Great room with day bed and futon, washer dryer and full bath and screened in porch. Satellite , WI-FI and lots of DVDs and games in the house.

Please note that we are on a river that sometimes rises. At time the water will be high enough that in covers the dock and is well up into the back yard. We actually love it like this as the water is clear, clean and beautiful. You can still bring a boat up into the yard and have full river access for the canoes and kayaks. We recently fenced in about an acre of the property which makes it great for anyone bringing there dog/dogs.

Why Kris E Logan chose Branford

We bought this property to get away from the hustle of city living and enjoy the outdoors with our dogs. Two day up here feels like a week of relaxation. We love everything about the rivers.

Beautiful property, great location

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED this charming house on the river, exactly as described, very well supplied with most anything you could need (except food) and cozy. Enjoyed hearing the orchestra of crickets at night on the deck, being greeted by deers, and watching turtles on the river you can't help but shut down your mind and relax! This was a much needed vacation. So quiet, peaceful, huge yard and only a 15 min drive to the ichetucknee springs state park where we did the 3 1/2 hour tube float down the ichetucknee river. Kris was very friendly and answered any questions I had right away. There is even a notebook in the house filled with useful information, restaurants recommendations, nearest grocery store, and suggestions of things to do, etc. Thank you so much for having us!!!

It was awesome.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I loved the peace and quiet. It was nice having so many things to do at the house. My parents who are 70, my grandmother who is 89, my son 19 and my niece 12. Something fun for everyone to do. From card games, dominoes, movies and so much more. It was a great experience that we all enjoyed.

Owner's Response: I am confused by this review. Chris canceled his trip. I offered other dates and he rebooked. Cancelled again and said he would use his trip insurance. Never heard another word till this review. .???

Quaint riverside getaway at the mouth of the Ichetucknee

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely stay at Kris' river house. It is remote, and the wireless connection was spotty sometimes, but that did not affect our visit at all (just glad I didn't have to work). The space was the perfect size for my family of four and my dad and his wife. My kids loved the downstairs space for themselves, and we appreciated the extensive family-friendly movie selection. The house is very conveniently located to the Ichetucknee State Park and not far from other springs like Troy Springs State Park. We saw deer and tortoises every day when we left the house, and my daughter even saw an armadillo. The deck was a great place to hang out -- we enjoyed several sunsets there and at the dock. We appreciated having the kayaks available too and took those out to explore. If we decide to go to the Ichetucknee again, we will definitely consider staying here again. Thanks, Kris!

Peaceful, lovely river house full of amenities - perfect nature get away!

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 5 had a great time at this river house with plenty of room for us all. Kitchen stocked with any amenities you may need to cook. Gas grill was a plus for cookouts and fire pit made for great evening s'mores! Private docks accessible nearby made for perfect tubing back to the house and we made use of kyacks off the house dock as well. We used the bicycles too in order to easily retrieve the car from tubing drop sites. Ichetucknee state park was a close drive from the house. All in all it was a wonderful accommodation for our family and I would recommend it to anyone of my friends!

Relaxing Get Away at the River

  • 5 of 5

We love getting away to the river, and this house was very welcoming. We hadn't stayed on the Santa Fe before, just the Itchetucknee, and weren't sure what to expect. This location was wonderful as we could put our tubes or kayaks in at a park nearby and float/paddle right to the dock, which was also a nice place to hang out. We also appreciated that the house was so dog friendly with a fully fenced yard and gated upstairs deck. The huge selection of movies for an evening inside after being outside all day was nice too! My 12 and 15 year old sons also liked that they had a separate sleeping area downstairs--they were close but still had a little place to hang out away from us too. Great little get away on the river--we would love to come back.
