This is a two bedroom, one bath house on the banks of the Santa Fe river with a great view. We can easily accommodate up to six people with a double bed in one bedroom and a queen size bed in the other bedroom. There is also a futon sleeper in the living area.

Nice location, nice place, close to springs

  • 4 of 5

Nice place right on santa fe river. Close to ichetucknee springs which is why we came.

It is down a dirt road a but but wasn't to bad.

Plenty of things to do at the house/river to keep us and kids having fun.

We did notice the area restaurant's seem to all be closed on Sunday.

Would stay again.

Fantastic River Rental

  • 5 of 5

This house is fabulous..it is cozy, super clean and has all the river toys and more! Our kids loved making s'mores in the firepit and fishing on the dock. The beds are comfy, the ac cold, and we were so comfortable and happy here! A family of deer visited everyday and the night air filled with owl and critter sounds. Yard is huge and view from the porch fantastic! Ichetucknee State park and Ginnie Springs very close by. This property is a gem and we highly recommend it!

Peaceful riverfront retreat

  • 5 of 5

It's only been a day and we already want to return. The Spring House was the perfect getaway for our family of three and we enjoyed all of the amenities the house had to offer. Luckily, I read prior reviews and came equipped with print outs for directions to the house, to Branford and area springs - we had no cell phone or internet service which got us to spend time in the outdoors and with each other. Our 5 year old was definitely thankful for the dish network so she could have her disney channel at night and early morning. Just within the yard and on the dirt road leading to the house we saw so much wildlife - deer, armadillos, all types of birds and gigantic grass hoppers. The sounds of the bugs, frogs, etc at night was so neat for our daughter to hear - especially since she's born and raised in a city. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed for cooking and we utilized the grill and fire pit as well. We at our meals on the screened in porch enjoying the river view. We took a canoe up river, a little over a mile away, to a boat ramp area and fished our way down to the Spring House dock and our daughter loved it. My husband walked back to get our car later that afternoon. We didn't take the floats to the springs but they are there if you have room in your car. We also loved the ring toss game and cornhole. As you can tell - we had a great time! We look forward to returning!
