About the property

3 Bedroom 1 Bath with view of the Steinhatchee River

For stays between now and June 8, 2018, buy 2 nights and get the 3rd night free! This offer is not good during special events.

Now with new private boat dock on deep river!

If you are looking for the feel of Steinhatchee back in 'the good old days', this is the place for you. The River House is an older home sitting on the hill overlooking the Steinhatchee River. Sit in the Florida room out front and watch as the boats go up and down the river.

The 3 bedroom, 1 bath is a perfect place to bring the family for a Steinhatchee vacation. With 5 twin beds and one queen, the cottage will sleep 7 comfortably.

The kitchen is stocked with utensils for cooking if you wish, as well as a charcoal grill off the front porch.

The Florida room off the front gives extra space for relaxing and viewing the river. The living area offers plenty of room to gather for a night of rest after a busy day of fishing or scalloping.

A washer and dryer are located in the back room.

The cottage is centrally located near the marinas and restaurants, and an easy walk to Hungry Howie’s.

Parking is located behind the house with a short walk to the back door.

Steinhatchee is known for its year round fishing and its summertime scalloping. It has always been an angler's paradise. The pristine shoreline and shallow grass flats provide habitat for an abundance of salt water fish. In the summer season, you can try your hand at some of the finest scalloping in the world.

Always a pleasure

  • 5 of 5

We stay at this house a couple times a year! It is perfect for our group that goes normally 5-7 people. Only thing to pay attention to is that there is only one bathroom, so getting ready for dinner has to be done in shifts. An outdoor shower would be a great addition! Never the less we are looking forward to our next trip!

Great location and the private boat dock across the street is great!

  • 4 of 5

Overall, a great place to stay. Nice washer and dryer. Note to owner: new twin matresses are needed in the front bedroom and additional lighting is really necessary. Thank you, Trish, for your very professional property management, Ana contacting me regarding the blinds. Looking forward to working with you again.

Thank you so much for sharing your home with us. The house had everything we needed. We even enjoyed the new dock that was built out front. Very quaint home that is close to everything.
