Perfect getaway from the hussle and bussle.

  • 5 of 5

A nice getaway turned into an awesome time. If you are looking for a break from on the go all the time this is the place to go. Even though it is away from the city , there is still a lot of things to do. From canoeing to kayaking to inner tubing and lets not forget fishing and there is a lot more to mention. The cabin has a warm feeling to make you feel right at home. Not to mention the owner who went out of his way to show my kids and grand kids how to get in and out of a cone. Not to mention that he took them up the river and showed them one of the springs that feeds the river. We will definitely be back to explore more of what this cabin has to offer.

Away from it ALL! And it was great!!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I spent Thanksgiving week at this wonderful cabin! The cabin is stocked with everything you could ever need! All you need is food. A big selection of movies and games for everyone. It was so peaceful sitting on the deck in the mornings and evenings listening to the wildlife and the rain. One early morning, we got a wake up call from a pack of wolves passing by, kind of freaked out at first because neither of us were use to it, but it was cool! Very secluded property. The owner was very kind and only comes around if you need him. We will definitely be coming back, next time with friends and family, and maybe our dogs! ;) Thank you very much for letting us stay in your awesome cabin. =)

A real treat.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the Suwannee River Cabin from October 27 thru Oct 29th.

Everything was absolutely perfect! We were in awe how much the cabin had to offer.

Beside coffee and some food, you really have nothing more to bring than yourself.

Everything else is provided.........and I mean everything!!!! In- and outside.

it's truly like being home.

Although we arrived half an hour too early, we were warmly welcomed by John and his 2 lovely dogs. He immediately showed us around, and made sure we felt comfortable.

He borrowed my son his personal fishing gear. Not that it brought any luck, but it really didn't matter. Just enjoying fishing at the cozy setting of his dock was worth catching nothing. :)

Relaxing in the hammock overlooking the beautiful river, using one of his canoes exploring the springs, hanging out at the camp fire, and last but not least, sitting high above the ground on the deck at any given time of the day, enjoying the quiet surroundings....... What a treat.

It was an unforgettable weekend. If we had to say what we loved most, it would be EVERYTHING!

Thank you John, my 70th birthday sure was one I won't forget!

Great Get Away with Family!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a total stress free experience, this is the place for you! The home is fully stocked! Anything you may need, it's provided; from toilet paper to shampoo in the shower. I popped in the grocery store for food and beverages. There are games, movies and Directv. We enjoyed nights on the deck listening to all of natures' sounds. There is plenty of room for outdoor activities. John was so pleasant to speak with and he took time to explain what was available before our arrival. This is definitely a home we will rent again!
