Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday cabin in Branford - Dagmar Run

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.

Why Kris E Logan chose Florida North Central Gulf Coast

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.

Very enjoyable.

Great time on the river. The house was comfortable and close to numerous springs. The view of the property from the second story deck was wonderful. It was great to have direct river access. A scenic and quiet retreat.

Beautiful Property

  • 5 of 5

Our family (consisting of grandparents, parents and grandchildren 3-young adult and one preteen plus 3 dogs) stayed in this beautiful property the weekend after the 4th. The house is so well provisioned we didn't need half of what we took with us. The house was clean and cozy. The beds were comfortable. The kids enjoyed the kayaks and I (grandma) enjoyed the canoe. The owner Kris is awesome, we left an air mattress there and she is shipping it back to us. We would definitely recommend this property to anyone considering it. The property is stunningly beautiful and the river is awesome. We will be visiting again! Thanks Kris for sharing your beautiful property.

A wonderful place all the way!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I were looking for a place to spend some quality time together and be around nature and this cabin has given us what we wanted and more. The location is great and peaceful and at the same time you have some many options around while exploring this gorgeous Rive and near by springs. The canoe and kayaks were of big use for us and even our small children loved being in the canoe cruising the river. The cabin had all we needed and the land our children had to play outside was priceless.

We brought our bikes and had a great time riding around this beautiful nature scenario. Kris was really nice to talk to when we had questions and the response was pretty fast from her.

Overall a wonderful vacation time and would definitely com back anytime. Make sure to visit the springs around they are gorgeous.

Great place!!!

Great Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We spent the weekend at this cabin and had a good time. The cabin was well stocked, comfortable and laid back.

The location was very convenient to Itchetucknee Springs State Park. We were able to drive to the head spring and kayak the entire way back to the cabin on the Santa Fe.

Very peaceful location. No noise whatsoever other than the occasional boat passing on the river. I looked up at night and saw twice the stars I see at home in St Augustine. I had forgotten what the sky looked like in Florida as a kid.

Home was exactly as described. It was clean and comfortable. Kris was easy to deal with and responded to emails promptly. We have been renting homes for many years when vacationing and this was one of the easiest tranactions I've had.

We found a gym in Lake City (if you are into that, we are) and were able to go each morning.

We cannot advise on local resturants because we never wanted to leave the house or the river. The deck was better then any place you would want to go and enjoy a cocktail in the evening.

We had 6 people there and were never crowded, plenty of room.

I would definetly recommend this place to anyone considering this cabin. My kids at 14, 17 and 20 can't stop talking about how much fun they had. I was able to relax here like I haven't been able to in a long time.
