It was very well kept up and provided everything you needed.

  • 4 of 5

After we arrived we discovered the TV only worked in one bedroom. I called Mary and she said she would have her husband call and try to help us out. He never called back. :(

Also the screen on the back porch was ripped in several places, so it made it impossible to sit out there after dark because of the bugs. That was disappointing.

It was a lovely place. Nice and relaxing and quiet.

Owner's Response: Unfortunately TVs and their remotes do not always cooperate. Following our guests departure we replaced all 3 TVs with new flat screen with easy Direct TV remotes. All screening in question has been replaced.

Amazing river getaway!

  • 5 of 5

John and Mary saved our Labor Day weekend! They responded within minutes of me messaging them after our first rental fell through due to lack of electricity from a storm.

The house is beautifully appointed and contained everything we could want or need. There was more than enough space for our party of 4 adults, 4 children, and our dog. It was great having 2 master suites for the adults, and the kids all loved bunking together in the 3rd bedroom. Love that it's right on the river. We enjoyed fishing from the dock and visiting nearby springs.

Suwannee House is relaxation at its finest...

  • 5 of 5

Mary and John are such pleasant folks! Their "Suwannee House" is nothing but spot-on!!! The house is spacious, spotlessly clean, has a GREAT floor plan and quite simply says..."Welcome", the moment one opens the door.

Views of the majestic Suwannee are evident in most every room of the house. The screened deck is so enjoyable and the extended deck is wonderful for private sunbathing. The floating, covered boathouse is great! The provided benches allow one to relax while sitting and watching the sturgeons jump, the birds dive for their catch of the day and the mighty Suwannee roll toward the Gulf.

The development of the property has allowed the land to remain natural while affording one the opportunity to explore and feeling secure at the same time.

Last and most definitely not least....the extended welcome to one's "fur-babies" is most heart-warming. So, all the way around...SUWANNEE HOUSE is a go-to vacation spot. One can decompress and have a fine time doing so.

Thank you, Mary and John for sharing your lovely home.

Beautiful, peaceful Suwannee House

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at the Suwannee House! The view was beautiful! The house is located right next to the river, so you can enjoy the view anytime you want. I really enjoyed drinking my coffee outside on the patio/deck every morning. It was very peaceful except for the boats going by. The house was well equipped with everything that you could possibly need. Our trip was more of a business trip, so we didn't get take full advantage of the property. However, it was definitely a home away from home. Hopefully, we'll get to stay next year. Thank you for all your help!
