Larger groups (up to 20 -30) may want to see our other Rainbow River Home (VRBO #352980). It is set up for multiple families with children and large gatherings.

Awesome Family Weekend

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented the River House for a family weekend get away, the home was awesome, very clean and a spacious floor plan. Teri was very accommodating. We enjoyed hanging out on the dock and our 4 year old grandson caught his first fish. The home is centrally located and we even rented a pontoon boat for the day from The Blue Gator and drove it back to the house and docked it. We enjoyed this trip with our family and the accommodations were excellent, we would definitely stay here in the future.

Best Vacation on the River!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time, home is beautiful, spacious and very clean! Beautiful view of the River right in the backyard. Home has kayaks and tubes for floating on the river, no need to rent from another location. Great location, right next to Swappy's, they'll take you up river and you can float right back home. I recommend this home 110%!

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

This home and property exceeded our expectations. It was the perfect place for a nice relaxing vacation and we totally loved the beautiful Rainbow River! We watched birds, turtles and otters right from the backyard. The home was very roomy and clean. We loved the back screened in porch. We used the provided kayaks and loved the outing. One of the most fun relaxing family trips I have ever taken. Thanks for everything!

Rainbow River Retreat

  • 5 of 5

If you want to spend a few days relaxing in a wonderful house on a beautiful river, this is the place to go! The house is spacious, comfortable, well-laid out, and pristine clean with a kitchen supplied with all kinds of pots, pans, dishes, utensils, paper products, cleaning supplies—everything you would need. The view of the river cannot be beat. You can see it from the living room, dining area, kitchen, two of the three bedrooms, the porch, and of course from the dock. Kayaks of various sizes and tubes are provided if you want to enjoy going down the river. Everything was as advertised but better. We enjoyed a tour of the Rainbow and Withlacoochee Rivers on a 40 foot pontoon boat. We highly recommend this "Singing River Tours" with Capt. Jon Semmes who is also a first class professional musician who also entertains with a few songs and great narration of the sights along the way. We also had a meal at nearby Swampy's Bar and Grill which is within walking distance of the house. We also visited Rainbow Springs State Park which is a short distance away. The property manager was extremely helpful before, during and after our visit. She called to make sure everything was okay upon our arrival, and she called the night before leaving to remind us of how to close up the house for the professional cleaners who come in to make it ready for the next guests. We highly recommend this beautiful home that is well-managed and maintained.

Perfect for Girlfriends Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Condition of this home was perfect. Fully stocked kitchen made our meal prep easy. Three baths and bedrooms allowed privacy and no bed sharing necessary. Two of us kayaked for first time and it was easy and fun even going against the current. River is beautiful; this is a must visit property and all pictures do not do it justice. Owner very good to work with and always available for phone calls.

Wonderful location!

  • 5 of 5

This house was absolutely spotless! My husband is very picky about staying in clean places and this was wonderful! My favorite part is the location. I spent every bit of spare time I had sitting on the dock enjoying the wildlife! I am a bird lover and was not disappointed! Not only did I see a host of birds but otters, as well!

The house comes with 4 kayaks and enough inner tubes to keep a large family very happy! We found that kayaking after dinner was the best because no one was on the river at that time so we had the entire river to ourselves! This is a lovely setting and within walking distance of Swampy's and a yummy cup cake place, as well!
