Beautiful, newly remodeled 3 bedroom, 2 bath home located on the historic Suwannee River. Get away from it all. Easy access to Fanning Springs (1.5 miles up river) and Manatee Springs (7 miles down river). Bring a boat, or two 2-person kayaks available for use. Great views from the deck and dock that overhangs the river. Very peaceful.
Most people that know the Suwannee River feel that the home's location is fantastic, and the best of all the options. The river in this area is very large and grand, especially compared to up river where it can be quite narrow and crowded. It's size makes it great for skiing, tubing, and boating, and dealing with other boaters isn't really an issue. It is far enough up river (about 32 miles by boat) that you don't have the biting yellow flies of the coast, but close enough to boat down to the coast and back for fishing, or spending the day on your own private secluded island beach. The area has very little development as well, so you get the real sense of being in "old world" Florida. It truly is a unique, wonderful experience.
Please note: cell service may be limited. Unit does not currently have WIFI or cable TV. This property is quite rustic and remote, and is a great way to get away from it all. However, there is limited access to cellular phone service. Please understand the nature of your get away before booking.
Master bedroom with king bed, guest bedroom with king bed, and kids room with two bunk beds each with trundles. Easily sleeps 10.
One of the more common questions we get is regarding docking a boat at the property. You have a few options with regards to keeping a boat on the Suwannee River (flow of the river and boat wakes are a problem). Approximately 1/2 mile down the road from our rental house is a public boat ramp which is not very busy, and easy to launch/retrieve your boat. That is the preferred method and would take less than 30 mins.
Leaving the boat in the water with the current and other boaters creating wakes is possible, but not optimal. One option would be to tie the boat to the dock which is cantilevered over the river and anchor the aft section in the river (might require swimming to shore unless you are creative). The other would be to tie-off to our floating dock on the adjacent property, but you would need several good boat-bumpers. Again, the current and boat wakes put your boat at risk unless you are careful, and we are not responsible for boat damage or lost boats. There is room to keep a boat, trailer and vehicle at the property.
Our family has owned a home on the Suwannee River for 10 years now. We enjoy spending time on the water and relaxing with our friends during the summer months and hosting football and holiday parties during the fall/winter months. We have two children who have grown up bringing friends out the river for birthday parties and just to spend a fun weekend. Our Australian Shepherd loves running the property and hopping on a jet ski or the boat with us. We currently live and work in Gainesville and escape to the river for down time.

Our family held a surprise birthday party for my sister on December 28, 2016 and had a great time. The location was wonderful to sit outside on the beautiful Suwanee River and enjoy a quality visit. The house is wonderful- well stocked with the essentials and we all had a wonderful time!
Comfy and roomy, quiet atmosphere not too far removed from quaint town(s). Would be nice if back porch had a roof to offer additional outdoor seating out of sun/rain. Enjoyed our stay! Hope to return when the weather is better. (P.S.--the cleaning lady, Laura, is awesome and very hospitable; willing to help with any problem that arises.)
We had an amazing time here. Only suggestion is that a few hammocks on property would be cool.
We had a terrific time here. If there was anything negative at all to say I guess it would be how close the houses are on either side, but both properties were empty so it didn't effect our stay in any way. The house was beautifully remodeled, and had all the amenities one could hope for. I would absolutely love to stay here again sometime.
We had a great time, the location was close to the springs and the Suwannee river was very enjoyable to kayak down. The house was very enjoyable I would come back again.
