About the property

LARGE 4 Bedroom, 3.5 Bathroom Gorgeous Home! Sleeps 12+

Anchor Hill is a fantastic large 2-story home found in the Steinhatchee Landing Resort. Anchor Hill boasts 2700 square feet in living space and can comfortably accommodate 12 people in beds with 4 bedrooms (2 master ensuites with king beds, 1 queen bed and 3 sets of twin bunk beds), 3 1/2 baths, and a loft area with a slate pool table. Anchor Hill has lots of upgrades including wood floors throughout the bottom floor as well as a large gourmet kitchen with stainless steel appliances and granite countertops. The fully equipped kitchen opens up to the living and dining areas so is perfect for large gatherings and entertaining. There are a total of 4 porches that allow guests the ability to relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery. Anchor Hill overlooks the pool area and is very convenient to the chapel, conference center, petting zoo and docks.

Steinhatchee is a small fishing village in the Big Bend area of Florida known for the excellent summertime scalloping and outstanding wintertime fishing for trout, redfish, sea bass, grouper and more. Steinhatchee Landing Resort is nestled among moss-draped oaks and towering pines. The resort has been designed to look like an old Florida-style riverside village, with the 70 tin-roofed Victorian and cracker cottages that blend historic architecture with contemporary amenities for a truly unique getaway.

As a guest at Steinhatchee Landing Resort, you will have access to a 55 foot pool, exercise room, sauna and spa. Tennis and basketball courts are also a popular spot at the Landing. In addition, as a guest you will also have access to badminton/volleyball, archery, shuffle board, playground, ping pong, croquet, horseshoes, boat docks and walking trails. The wedding chapel and conference center are available for rent from the landing, along with canoes, kayaks, bikes, archery and shuffleboard equipment. There is also a small petting zoo located within the resort which is a big hit for all ages with goats, chickens, ducks and rabbits.

For the boaters and fishermen, boat dockage is available right at the Landing complete with water, electricity and fish and scallop cleaning stations.

Steinhatchee is known for its scalloping during the summer months (please make your reservations early to guarantee your spot!), as the gulf waters make an ideal habitat for these delicious shellfish. Scalloping season typically opens July 1 and ends September 24 each year. Other popular recreational opportunities in the area include bird watching, hiking, hunting, canoeing, kayaking, scuba diving, cave diving, nature photography, and visiting the many state parks in the area. Boat rentals and charters are available through the local marinas.

About Kim Sverdlow

We are Ben & Kim Sverdlow. I, Kim Sverdlow, manage the property for Anchor Hill Rentals, LLC. We live in Brandon, Florida and have 3 school-age children. We love doing things together as a family including scalloping, camping, fishing and traveling which is why we purchased this home! We know you will LOVE this home as much as we do which is why we love sharing it with others!

Kim Sverdlow purchased this house in 2012

Why Kim Sverdlow chose Florida North Central Gulf Coast

We've been coming to Steinhatchee since 2009 for scallop season. The fishing and scalloping here are FANTASTIC and so much FUN! We LOVE the peacefulness of the community and all of the amenities that are part of the Steinhatchee Landing Resort. Our kids are able to ride their bikes and scooters and go exploring within the community, and and we feel completely safe letting them do so. We were fortunate to be able to buy our house this past summer and have enjoyed our home away from home whenever we can!

What makes this house unique

Anchor Hill is a beautiful and well equipped 'home away from home' great for vacationing, fishing, scalloping, or just taking a break from everyday life. It's very relaxing and a great opportunity to spend time with family and friends. The grounds are beautifully landscaped with tons of amenities! and ... the fishing and scalloping are incredible in this area!

Beautifully Maintained and Modern

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 3 families stayed at Anchor Hill during scallop season. Kim's home is beautifully maintained with all the modern luxuries needed for a wonderful vacation. The home is close to the pool. We were part of a larger group with two additional homes in Steinhatchee Landing and everyone agreed that our vacation home was the best!!!

Great place, beautiful amenities, and plenty of room for everyone.

  • 5 of 5

It's a bit of a walk to the water, so bring a wagon. The community is great. There is a petting zoo and playground. First come, first serve dockage. But we had no problem getting a dock at the height of the season. The house is beautiful with lots of room. Stocked with some games for the kids and plenty of bunk beds. I would definitely come again for next year's scallop season. It was a great long weekend. Thanks so much!!!
