About the property

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 Northside

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!

Awesome getaway and well managed!

  • 5 of 5

This place is a gem. It feels private, has great charm and having a dock is fantastic. It is so peaceful to hang out on the dock, and we did a little fishing with the poles that were available in the house. This property is a relaxed getaway spot, but there are nice activities like a fire pit (and s'mores stuff stocked in the house), hammock, games in the main room, etc. There is even a crab catching thingy attached to the dock for your use. The owners of this house clearly take pride in providing their guests an enjoyable and full experience, and it makes a big difference!

Lots of fun!

  • 5 of 5

If you're look for a great house with lots of things to do, ie family fun, fishing, boating, crabbing, and a beautiful view of the Trout River, this is the place for you! The cottage is fully stocked and beautifully appointed. The only thing that you need to bring is you and your family!

A Diamond in the Rough

  • 5 of 5

This property is truly a quiet, serene, and well-appointed rental. Our stay was worry-free and exceptionally comfortable. The Price's have thought of everything that one might need when staying away from home. It was worth every penny and if my travels take me and my family back to the Jacksonville area, I would not hesitate to book this property again.
