perfect weekend getaway for us
came up from Stuart to get away from the city and explore the St Johns river. This place worked out petfect for us with the covered boatslip on the canal and the sunsets out front. The inside is perfect as well. Also the area is great and we will be back
Election Cottage getaway!
Cozy, very clean, great boat slip, fantastic view and very nice people. Arrived the day after the election to getaway from all of the chaos and it was perfect. Didn't know that the cottage had wifi until day before we left and looking back, it made the trip all the better. Sprint cell service is spotty but that is expected when you are this far out. Bass Fishing was a disappointment due to Hurricane Matthew causing alot of shrimp to push back up the river and the fish were full. Did catch channel catfish, variety of Bream and although we had a boat, most of this was caught in the canal! Great place with or without a boat. No fast food chains, no grocery stores except a dollar general. Honestly, all you need is Shrimps R Us!! Breakfast lunch or dinner, this place is incredible! We live in Jax, an hour and half away and definitely plan to make a trip just for dinner. This is your place for a relaxing getaway and we will be back! Thank you.
Happy on the River
My husband and I, and our black Lab had a wonderful time at the Sunset River Cottage. It was very cozy, comfortable, and clean. Beautiful location, close to Silver Glen and Salt Springs, and loved that there were no major stores or fast food places close by! Saw many manatees and gators, so much wildlife! There are excellent restaurants close by, Shrimp R Us and Hawg Wash, both in Welaka, were wonderful. The neighbors were great, and the owner, Jim and property manager, Gene were very friendly and helpful. Will definitely be back:)
My family and I absolutely loved this cottage. The location was great, it's right on the river and the covered boat dock was a definite bonus. The owner Jim and the property manager Gene were extremely nice and very accommodating. It was just a great place to go and relax. The only thing I would recommend is to go to the store before arriving because the closest store is about 20 min away. Check out the restaurant Shrimp r us in Welaka, it's amazing!!!!
Perfect relaxing location with an amazing view! We enjoyed watching the St Johns river as we caught bass, catfish and sunfish. We also caught pickler and alligator fish that fascinated the girls. We were close enough to drive to Lake George and Lake Crescent to fish. But honestly you can catch just about anything right off the dock and canal at the cottage. The cottage was cute and well maintained. Plenty of room in the backyard for enthusiastic kids to run around. The owner Jim and manager Gene are great people. We will definitely be back! Yes, you will want to book this spot!!!
Beautiful & Relaxing!
We stayed for a week at the River cottage and had the most relaxing and peaceful vacation of our lives. We took our boat and spent each day on the river. The cottage is very comfortable and has everything you need. There are even crab traps if you care to give it a try! The kitchen has a gas stove which I loved cooking on. There is a boat ramp at Bass World which is very close by - just few streets over. The people there are very nice.Our boat being right at the cottage under cover was a relief and made it so easy to just jump in and go. I would suggest getting groceries before getting there, the closest store is a Dollar Store and then for groceries there is a Winn Dixie in Crescent City - about 20 minutes away. Do yourself a favor & eat at Shrimp R Us - wonderful food - the most delicious shrimp we've ever eaten and we were both raised in Volusia County - so we know what we're talking about! It's just about 10 minutes away, in Welaka.
The cottage owner, Jim, is very kind and helpful and the caretakers down the road are gracious and keep the place beautiful. We definitely will return.
