Beautiful setting. Lovely home. Has everything one could want. Great for families. Nice kayaks. Fun fire pit. Great view right in the river bluff. Screened porch. Wish we stayed longer. Like camping with all the luxuries of home. Host Kelli is very responsive and organized. Highly recommend.

Thanks so much for letting us stay in your home! It met all our needs and wants, and was very comfortable for the handful of us. We especially enjoyed the hike we found in your binder of trail guides, and the use of the kayaks on our sunny fall day.

Once you step inside this property the first thing to strike you is it was built to be a home and not a rental property. The home is gorgeous, comfortable, and modern in all the right ways. The appliances are brand new, beds are comfortable, furniture inside and out is relaxing and everything works exactly as it should. The site is private and relaxing. We spent time sitting and watching the Suwannee River and made three visits to Running Springs just down the road to cool off in the crystal clear spring water. All of us are planning on bringing our families back again this year. Simply cannot recommend it enough.

Nice and relaxing, just what we needed! Me & my family loved the place as soon as we arrived. It was better than expected with how clean and up to date everything was. We were also pleasantly surprised by the swinging bed on the porch and the huge bath tub. 👍👍 We enjoyed fishing off the dock, hanging out around the fireplace, and exploring the spring that was just 5 minutes up the road. Only thing that was not as expected was how close the neighbors were located. We were thinking it was completely private but could see & hear the neighbors most of the time, which they were very welcoming & nice.

This is a great place to get back to Mother Nature with all the comforts of home. The house is super clean, comfortable, has everything you need to cook with and enjoy the river and campfire. Kelli and Curt are very friendly and respond quickly to all your questions. My family can’t wait to come back. Thanks for opening up your beautiful property to my family!

Beautiful home on beautiful property! Every bed and chair was comfortable, the deck and fire pit were very relaxing, and we enjoyed using their kayaks to explore the Suwannee River and Springs. The neighbor were very helpful with our kayaking; dropping us off or shuttling us back. We cooked all our meals and everything we needed was there, even a crock pot. The decor was very cool- great pictures of nearby Springs, old bottle collection, cute flamingo themed bathroom, nice bedding, etc. We can’t wait to come back!
