Beautiful river run retreat
My second vacation here I finally got the stupid owl to hold still for a picture. I love this place the views are gorgeous, the kitchen large and well equipped and the shower can only be described as luxurious. I hope to book it in the summer for some kayaking.

Checks all the boxes!
What a beautiful, peaceful hideaway on the Suwannee! We’ll be sure to come back. Caught fish, made s’mores, and just relaxed. Oh yeah, and we cooked a gourmet meal in the kitchen. This place checked all the boxes.

I highly recommend this house if you like cozy, quiet and away from the noise of modern day. Our family felt right at home we enjoyed fishing the dock and making a fire at night. It was too cold for kayaking but we plan to come back when its warmer.

Amazing place with tons of amenities and well stocked cabin. So comfortable and easy to chill, this was exactly the get-away we wanted. Loved the access to the river and the kids enjoyed the kayaks and fishing poles.

Swannee river perfection
As a person who travels both for a living and for pleasure I’ve been using home sharing for over a decade and I’ve never found one that’s as good a bargain. The only way to describe it is extra. Beautiful home overlooking the river, comfortable beds, access to kayaks, fire pit, smoker, grill, great kitchen. I hope to be able to book it again soon

Magic Place
A beautiful and Magic peaceful place to connect with nature and enjoy all what it has to offer. The place itself is gorgeus and you would not need to go somewhere else to have a blast. The beautifl views of the river at different times of the day is something that you cannot miss. But if you are looking for more adventures it’s close to many Springs that you can visit during the day and are just a few miles away from this place. It was a family trip and we all want to come back!

Camping, not camping. :)
We had a fabulous weekend at Running Springs Retreat! We pitched a couple of tents in the yard and some of us stayed inside. The house was clean and comfortable! Very well stocked with linens and kitchen needs! We were pleasantly surprised. The AC was cold when needed. The outdoor porch was so fun, with the swinging bed! We spent much time by the fire pit area. We did purchase firewood while there. We loved the kayaks and canoes, however be aware they are challenging to get loaded in the river. The stairs are steep and being able to maneuver the canoes and kayaks down into the river was rough! It took several of us, and a couple of us are super athletic and strong. If you are not able to do so, they do have a neighbor shuttle service for the kayaks, which we did not need to utilize, but might be helpful. Overall, the property was so fun! The perfect compromise for our family that some like to camp and some don’t! We will definitely book another weekend in the future!

This is a very beautiful place. Very well equipped and well maintained. It's really peaceful and quiet. A great get away place to sit on the porch and listen to the wildlife and the sturgeons slapping the water. We will definitely be back when the water is not so high.

I totally recommend it. staying at Kelli's land is already part of our annual camping plans. Always worth driving about 6 to 7hrs to get there! It's a perfect place to get out of the routine and enjoy the beauty of nature. The house is very close to several springs and has everything we need.

The cabin is absolutely adorable and comes with stunning views and direct river access. The host Kelli has thought of everything you need to enjoy your stay, including kayaks, safety vests, fishing rods, etc. The property is directly on the Suwannee and you can see the river from the house also. This is the perfect peaceful getaway to reconnect with nature and discover all the natural wonders that Florida has to offer.

Perfect in every way!
The home was clean and welcoming! We had an amazing trip. We literally stayed on the deck at the river all day and on the porch swing bed for hours in the evening. So beautiful and relaxing. Everything was comfortable. Leslie is so sweet and very responsive to any questions. I don’t have one negative thing to say.

Really cozy cabin, and woodsy lot. Feels like camping but with a bed and a/c. The outdoor space was amazing. So many springs close by. Cabin was well stocked with anything we needed. We had a great time.

Kelli is the perfect host. She thinks of everything you might need. The house is clean and comfortable. We loved the view. We made a fire in the fire pit every night. If you are a cave diver, it is a perfect location due to it's proximity to many local springs. Kayaking, canoeing, fishing and swimming are some of the other fun activities in the area. I would definitely rent the cabin again. Maybe when the water is a little warmer.

A Little Bit of Heaven on Earth
Staying at Kelli's was one of the best places we have stayed, it feels like a home away from home. The accomodations were beautiful, welcoming, relaxing, and emaculate. Kelli is one of the best hosts we have had the pleasure of communicating with. She goes above and beyond to make sure your stay leaves you feeling comfortable and relaxed, as well as wanting to return over and over. Thank you Kelli for sharing your space with so many people!

Bachelor party getaway
This spot was amazing. My friends and I had nothing but a great time. We took full advantage of what Kelli has to offer. The house was comfortable and tastefully decorated. We loved grilling outside, hanging out by the fire pit, and taking the kayaks out for a paddle. This was the perfect getaway for my best friends bachelor party and one we’ll never forget. Highly recommend!!!

Wow! This place far exceeded our expectations! Gorgeous! Every room, including the screened in porch, felt spacious and cozy.. really felt like home away from home. The large tub in the bathroom, and the washer/dryer were a plus. Everything was super clean and comfortable. We also enjoyed the kayaks and the fire pit, and it was nice to have a place to park the cars in the covered area under the house. So quiet and peaceful! I wish we could've stayed longer, we definitely plan to come back! Thank you for a wonderful stay!

The campfire and kayaking
The campfire was great, and sleeping in the screened in balcony on the swinging bed was great. Kayaking was amazing, and there were plenty, as there was one kayak for each of the four of us.

A magic place !
We loved our stay! Kelli was an amazing host, always available to answer any questions we had in our stay. The house was immaculate with everything you could need and more. Then kids enjoyed every minute there. We went fishing and in our way back we stopped by Ichetucknee Springs State Park were you can go tubing, paddling, canoeing or just go for a walk. There are not big stores around so plan accordingly. Thank you Kelli for giving us the opportunity to enjoy such a beautiful place. We will definitely coming back! Jose, Paola, Emilio & Matias.

Central location to Springs
Our family had a great time at Kelli's awesome retreat. The house had everything that we needed and saved us from making multiple trips to the store. It was very clean and homely. We would definitely recommend this location to any family looking for a quiet laid back time. It was centrally located to numerous springs in the area. Our three kids especially loved Royal Springs, which was only 10 minutes away. Great memories were made and we plan to return this upcoming summer.

We had a fantastic time as a family here with my husband and my three kids. This magical house was super clean, with a huge positive and cozy energy. We really enjoy the Suwannee river. Kelly has at this place everything you can need to have the best stay. We really want to come back. I want to write my book in that porche!!!
