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!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

John is the nicest person you can ask for. He went over and beyond to make our stay feel more like a getaway than a getting away from hurricane Irma. He even offered to stay in his own home if we didn't feel safe out there in the cabin. There's no one else out there like John. Thank you so much for everything. We loved it and had more than we needed.

Great Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the Suwanee River Cabin! We enjoyed the river, the cabin, and bike riding from the cabin to the riverfront. We observed deer twice while riding our bikes. This was the first vacation we were able to bring our dog, which made it extra special! We went tubing down the Ichetucknee, playing at Bob's Riverplace, and scalloping in Steinhatchee!! I was excited to take our children to see this part of Florida, they had a great time and participated in activities new to them. We enjoyed a delicious scallop dinner in the cabin's fully equipped kitchen, which was the perfect way to end the vacation. We were sad to leave, but plan to return!

The pictures do not do this property justice.

  • 5 of 5

Get away from the city lights and noises with all the comforts of home. Very relaxing. Owner is above and beyond helpful but only if you need him.We cooked over the firepit on the river while fishing and the kids went canoeing, I will recommend this to anyone who wants to get away from it all.
