Hands-down the most unique accommodation on the Upper Suwannee or this portion of the Florida Trail. Somehow, I got a 30+ft houseboat parked in the river next to my house. If you know anything about this stretch of the river and how much rise/fall it has, you are probably asking yourself how did I do this? Or am I possibly insane? We can discuss those things when you arrive.

But - to the point. This is a 32ft Crest houseboat parked in the river, about a 30 second walk from my permanent house next to the river. We live here year round. So, we will be nearby more than likely. I have a lovely wife, 3 kids, 3 dogs, 2 cats, and 2 leopard geckos (my daughter would not forgive me if I did not mention them).  We spend some time on the houseboat almost every day.  Love it.  We have been talking about a way to share it with people for a while and just recently found this site.

This stretch of the river is absolutely the most scenic.  This coming from people that have been here all our lives, and have spent a ton of time on all parts of the river.  Very little motor boat traffic.  Almost always serene quiet - with the occasional friendly group of kayakers or canoeists.

The houseboat itself is literally floating in the water. Or potentially beached if the river is extremely low. This website did not really have an accurate way to describe this thing so I'm trying my best.

Our property is directly adjacent to the Florida Trail, so this is an excellent stopping point for people overnighting this section.

The houseboat has electricity via a portable generator that will power the entire boat, including the A/C. It also has a fridge, TV, WIFI, microwave, hot plate, and space heater. It has the capability to have running water and shower, but I don't have that running quite right yet.

Listing will be subject to water level on the river.  I will have to cancel reservations if the river suddenly gets too high.  It's just too difficult for most people to get on and off the boat.  But for 85% year - good to go.
