About the property

Vacation on the banks of the Historic Suwannee River

Beautiful 2bed/3bath home on the historic Suwannee river, located on 2 secluded acres of natural river front. Enjoy total privacy with no homes in sight. Just a quick three minute ride to the boat ramp, and your boat can be kept in front of the home at the dock. Relax on the 1000sqft partially covered wooden deck built over the river. Build a fire in the fire pit or grill by the river bank. Sit and watch the moon glisten on the river. Enjoy the deer turkey or wild bird life, a great place for nature lovers. The house is just as beautiful and relaxing on the inside. Newly remodeled with fully stocked granite kitchen, 2 full baths with tubs, natural hard wood floor in main room and carpeted bedrooms. A third bathroom with shower conveniently located on the ground level. Enjoy your morning coffee on the private deck off the master bedroom or the main screed porch. We are located 50 miles west of Gainesville and 3 Miles down river from Fanning Springs.

About Dan and Cheryl LaCross

We have used this property for a few years as a family getaway location and would love to share it with you.

Why Dan and Cheryl LaCross chose Old Town

No homes in sight. Across the river is part of the Lower Suwannee Wildlife Refuge. From this home you have the river views up and down to yourself.

Diamond in the Rough

  • 5 of 5

Please don't stay here, and don't tell anyone to stay here. My wife and I want it all to ourselves! We stayed in this house alone for a long weekend and are determined to go back. If you're looking for luxurious comfort and every modern convenience, this is probably not the right house for you. Located at the end of a dirt road, it's isolated, with no wifi or cell coverage. It's a place to disconnect, relax, and enjoy the natural beauty of old Florida. That being said, although the exterior of the house could use some improvement, the interior is spacious and well-appointed, true to the photos. But the real treasure here is the dock - large enough for a group of friends or extended family to enjoy an evening swimming, boating and watching the sunset. Make sure to bring your boats, as there's a ramp next to the house, and your fishing poles. I would also recommend some flashlights, because when it gets dark, it gets DARK.

Relaxing and Peaceful

This was our first VRBO experience and it exceeded our expectations. The house and dock were just like the pictures! We will definitely be back next year. The house was very clean and well stocked.

Sanctuary on the Suwannee

  • 5 of 5

The Hideaway is truly the perfect location to relax and explore the local beauty of the Suwannee River and nearby springs. Dan's communication was excellent and the check-in and check-out process was seamless. We found the house to be very comfortable, clean and well-appointed. As mentioned in a previous review, and as suggested by Dan, do bring bottled water for drinking as the shallow well servicing the house does have a sulfur smell typical of this area. We enjoyed sitting on the dock with our morning coffee to watch the mist tumble along with the river current and at sunset with our sundowner. There is also a wonderful fire pit to enjoy the night sights and sounds. Dan is certainly gracious to share this special place. Life is good at the Hideaway on the Suwannee!
