About Katie Price

We are retired living in Marietta GA. We bought the property in October of 2014 as a vacation destination and an investment. We spent 8 months working to bring it up to our standards of comfort and appeal, doing most of the work ourselves. Everett is the remodeling expert, Katie is the landscape and interior designer, and photographer. We hope our visitors will enjoy the cabin as much as we do.

Katie Price purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Katie Price chose Jacksonville

We were charmed by this home the first time we saw it. Having been built in the early 20th century, it is much older than the subdivision that was developed around it in the '30s and '40s.

It is close to the Jacksonville airport, 3 minutes off of I-95, 15 minutes from downtown, Everbank Field, and riverfront attractions. The beach is only a 30 minute drive. Yet when you reach the cabin, you feel you're away from it all. Views of the Ribault (REE-bawt) River from most rooms. Across the river is tidal marsh filled with birds; manatees and dolphins can be seen from time to time. Heavy woods beyond the marsh make the property feel very private. Observing the ebb and flow of the tide gives you an ever-changing view. There are even two crab traps! Fishing off of the dock does not require a state license.

NOTE: There is a second house on the property which is leased to a nice, quiet young couple. They have a small dog that stays inside most of the time. We think we have provided sufficient privacy between the houses that you shouldn't find things uncomfortable. Becoming vacation home owners and landlords at the same time was an interesting experience.

What makes this cabin unique

Secluded location. Charming log cabin interior. Large private, fenced yard. Excellent boating and fishing destination. Great for kayaking and paddleboarding in the marshes at high tide. Property includes covered double boat dock with two 10,000 lb. boat lifts, fish cleaning station, double hammock, and kayak/canoe launch site. Public boat ramp 1/4-mi upriver, 40 minutes by boat to the ocean, 25 minutes to downtown Jacksonville where boaters can tie up almost anywhere. Watching sunsets from either of the decks or the dock is a very special experience!

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We were in Jacksonville for a wedding. The house is just minutes from downtown. It was a beautiful, peaceful, relaxing place to stay! The attention to detail - from the decorating to the garden and the personal touches (such as photographs taken by the owner) - make it such a quaint place to stay. So much more fun than some cookie cutter hotel. The pictures posted here are great, but it was even better in person than we thought it would be. We didn't want to leave and can't wait to go back!

Beautiful and relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had another wonderful stay at the cabin! The cabin is close to all the places we love to visit such as downtown, the beaches, the zoo, Fernandina, and shopping. The cabin is cozy and comfortable and has everything we could possibly need. We love to fish and crab from the pier and drink coffee in the morning, wine in the evening on the deck. Everett and Katie are wonderful to work with. We are looking forward to our 3rd visit.

Peaceful and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

A couple of friends and I stayed at the cabin while in Jacksonville for the Donna Breast Cancer Half Marathon. It is a lovely cabin and property and the Price's have thought of everything you might need. I have stayed in many VRBO properties and this is by far the best supplied of any my family has rented.

My group had busy days before and after the race - it was great to be able to go out to eat each night to great restaurants within a 10 min drive of the cabin and then come back and relax by the water and listen to the wonderful wind chimes on the front porch! We are already looking forward to next year's race and hopefully staying here again! Thanks so much!!

A peaceful retreat for our family

  • 5 of 5

We came up to Jax for our son's wedding.

This place was the perfect getaway for the week.

This spot is downright charming.There is great attention to detail. The beds are comfortable the linens and towels are exceptional (100% cotton)

The children and our dog loved being outside running around, canoeing and catching crabs. We enjoyed watching the sunsets over the river from the deck.

It is spacious accommodation in a very peaceful setting.

We will definitely be back.

One of the best rentals we've experienced!

  • 5 of 5

My Jacksonville family gathered at this wonderful log cabin house on the beautiful Trout River to celebrate Christmas together, a 10 day stay.We are from Maryland. The cabin is larger than the pics show, beautiful inside and out! Very homey and comfortable in warm and cold temps! The Prices are generous with stocking the cabin w all you need.They also create a loving environment that is clean and upscale with their personal touches! All conveniences, easy and iimmediate communications. We had 2 small dogs that enjoyed the large yard that is fenced to the outer perimeter and bordered by the river! We enjoyed firepit, fireplace, outdoor decks, covered and lit fishing on the pier, caught a 3lb red drum! Happiest of places near 95 and accessible to beaches. Prices even decorated for Christmas for us! WE LOVED our stay greatly. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
