Family outdoor adventure.
Unplug and Listen to nature while enjoying a perfectly comfortable cabin.
Highly recommended! All the amenities one could need plus a personal tour book full of local brochures. The cabin is very well maintained and extremely clean.
The river is accessible from the backyard with kayaks and a canoe ready to go!
We enjoyed s’mores roasted over the fire pit on our last evening.
Kelli our host was always available to answer all our questions. Her river house had everything and then some for a fun time. The location is perfect with friendly neighbors. I highly recommend this property for an ultimate river and spring experience! Rob took us up to the bridge for a paddle down to Peacock Springs and then we paddled back to the house with plans to continue on to Royal Springs for takeout after having lunch. It rained, so nixed that plan, but still enjoyed the comforts of home while it rained.
Where memories are made!
Our stay at Running Springs River Retreat was AMAZING. From the time I booked until the time we arrived, Kelli and Grant had been in close contact with us via messaging. The day we arrived, it had been raining all morning and when we got there, the kids were playing board games inside while we unpacked. Right after we finished, the rain had cleared. Because it rains daily here in Florida, unfortunately the river was WAY too high to utilize but don't let this stop you, there is Soo much to do at the home and within reasonable commuting distance. From walks, and campfires to fishing and tubing, you won't be bored! Sitting on the back porch at night and taking in nature was a favorite of ours and the kids loved riding their scooters under the house and playing cornhole.
Being that the river was too high and unsafe to utilize, we called Ron who typically does the kayak shuttle and asked for advice and he pointed is toward Ichetucknee Springs as the flood waters don't typicalky reach there. On the North side you can swim in the Springs and on the South side you can tube down. The water was clear, safe for adults and kids alike, and a GREAT time was had by all. This vacation created so many memories and we are so grateful for Kelli and Grant allowing us to stay. The Home is furnished, comfortable, and if you forgot something at home, they likely have it there for your use. I can't say enough about the comfort and convenience of this gem, will book again! Let this review be your sign, this rental is the one for you!
Wonderful home in a quiet neighborhood! It was a perfect family vacation where we were able to enjoy a few local springs with the children and return to the yard to grill, listen to the River and roast s’mores nightly. We’ll be back! Thank you.
Beautiful, Peaceful and fully equipped place to stay. Kelli passed on her knowledge must see places in the area. It wasn’t a let down, quite the center of the area.
We enjoyed the peaceful nights listening to the owls and frogs, playing cards on the screened in porch so that the mosquitos didn’t carry us off.
Highly recommend this place, you won’t be let down.
Nature lovers paradise!
To say this place is paradise is an understatement! We love places that are off the beaten path and Running Springs fit the bill perfectly. Not only is it secluded, on the river, close so many natural springs and the beach, but it also had such charm and function as define utopia!
We would love to keep this peice of heaven to ourselves, but, alas, i have to share it. 😊
