The riverhouse is a 2 bedroom 2 bath stilt home that sleeps 12, located on the beautiful withlacoochee river. This recently updated home is surrounded by nature and has a spectacular view of the river - watch fish jumping and turn to see birds playing in the trees. The riverhouse has all the amenities of home. Just come with groceries and stay and play with nature. Enjoy fishing, sailing, bird watching, boating, kayaking, and scalloping. All boating\fishing amenities are located less than a quarter mile ~including bait shop and marina. The boat ramp and a fishing dock are located in front of the riverhouse.
Yankeetown is a charming coastal village on the northwest coast of florida, known for its tree-lined street and quiet lifestyle. We are centrally located to all major florida attractions such as disney and busch gardents. We are 15 minutes away from crystal river and kingsbay and the manatees. Historic cedar key with its dockside restaurants and galleries is only a bit further. There are several state parks, national wildlife refuges and paddling trails. This literally and figuratively is the heart of the nature coast.
Fishing here is wonderful, you can fish right off the dock or rent a boat to fish the waters of the withlacoochee river with access to the gulf of mexico. Lake rousseau and the rainbow river are just minutes away. Ocala, is about thirty minutes away if horses are your passion.
Carl and Lisa bought The Rivershouse as a quick escape from daily living. It's just an hour away from their permanent residence so they can often take their 5 kids to get away for family time and to decompress.
Lisa Steinkamp purchased this house in 2003
We chose this house because of the quant small town feel and the peaceful feel the river brings. There is nothing more relaxing than watching the fish jump out of the water and seeing the shrimp boats head out for their nightly catch.
The riverhouse has kayak rentals within walking distance along with a nature park plus another park for children. The long dock that sits directly in front of the house is perfect for fishing and relaxing. There is also an area to launch your boat on the property.
We had a great time, the large rooms made it perfect for all of us to enjoy one another. There was something for ages 5 to 15 kids. For granma just watching everyone enjoy. I have a friend booking with you after seeing all our pictures. Thanks for sharing your house.
Our annual family scalloping trip was full of great memories. We all enjoyed the home as we played games, swam, ate, relaxed and soaked in the last days of summer vacation. Thank you for providing the space for us to escape busy lives and spend much needed time together.

We really enjoyed our stay at your house. My kids were thrilled with the view of the water and being able to walk down to the river. The area seems to be low traffic and I felt safe having them roam around. The Coast Guard guy even cut on all their boat sirens for my 5 year old. We caught lots of fish out of the river. If you are looking for a quiet vacations with lots of inexpensive activities nearby, this is a great place. Homosassa state park is a day of fun. We went to the manatee festival in Crystal river at 3 sisters springs. We also went to Rainbow springs park. House had everything we needed and felt very accommodating. It was tricky to find the driveway the first night, in the dark, but after that it was awesome. Thanks Lisa for letting us share your little piece of paradise.
