About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, 2 Sleeps

The beautiful Santa Fe River and its many pristine springs are at your doorstep from this tiny, well equipped cabin in the woods. Relax in a peaceful, private, low tech environment surrounded by Mother Nature. The town of High Springs with antiques, gift shops, and restaurants is 6 miles away; Gainesville (and the UF Gators) is 30 miles away. Beautiful parks and spring fed rivers and hiking / biking trails are close by. Cave divers and snorkeling at world renowned Ginnie Springs is 1 mile upriver. Canoe/kayak/float/swim/relax in the river and springs 100 feet from the cabin door.

The cabin is fully equipped with AC/heat, fridge, microwave and hotplate, all utensils and linens provided. The bathroom has toilet and shower. We have a comfy full size bed, DVD player, dvd's, games and books. Outside you will find a screened porch to watch the wildlife and birds. We have a bar-b-que and a fire pit. The hammock swings between two shady trees.

The gate from the cabin leads to a small, pristine spring right on the Santa Fe River.

About Owner/Manager

We are both retired and love where we live and love to share it with others. The cabin is private, in a clearing in the woods. Our house is on the other end of the property.

We are from St. Louis, but have lived in Florida for over 40 years.

Excellent setting for people who love the woods but want to sleep in a bed.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful setting. Very quiet and secluded. 1 minute walk to river and small spring. Cabin is small but perfect for 2 people. Had everything we needed. Plenty of space outdoors.

Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We had a great break from city life at the cabin. Awesome people and awesome property. we cannot say enough. we want to share it with everyone yet keep it to ourselves as it's a hidden gem.

it's like having your own private Ginnie Springs but in comfort and no disturbance from the college partiers.

Maryanne and Dave go over and above providing comfort -even setting up our first fire. They give you total privacy but they are there if needed.

we will be back and will share with others. thank you!

Great tiny secluded cabin near the river

The cabin was wonderful, just as described in the listing. The location is perfect; very secluded with hiking trails to Rum Island Park and the Santa Fe river.

rustic and beautiful

  • 5 of 5

I rented this little house for my husband and I to get away for a weekend, and it was just what we needed. We are living in a big city and we just needed to get away from all the people and the noise and the concrete. To hear the bugs and the squirrels and sounds of nature was such a treat. Dave had kindling ready for us in the fire pit, and everything was very tidy and more than sufficient. The fact that there is a crystal clear freshwater spring at the end of the trail leading right from the property was the cherry on top. They call it Mermaid, Jonathon, or Bathtub Spring. It is magical. We will be back! We loved it! Thank you Dave and MaryAnn for letting us in on this treasure of a place!

fabulous getaway spot!!

  • 5 of 5

Run Island Cabin is the absolute perfect get-away place!! The location is wonderful - completely private with everything you need for a weekend (or longer) away. The cabin is 100% equipped - we lacked for nothing. Space was perfectly comfortable and cozy. The pictures on the website are completely accurate (so there were no surprises on our arrival which I appreciated). Lots of nature and outdoor activities in the area. I highly recommend Rum Island Cabin!! Can't wait to return!
