Suwannee River House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

If you are looking for family fun or unique adventurous vacation then check out the Suwannee River in North Florida. A boater's paradise and well kept secret among seasoned travelers and avid boaters. Anglers love to get to the fishin' hole quickly in the NO no wake zone hundred mile long navigable river. Speed boaters zoom by in the no speed limit smooth glassy waters where you will scarcely hit the wake of another boater. Away from the coastal beach crowds the river is a welcome refreshment in the summer heat. Fed by dozens of springs the Suwannee is highly protected and undeveloped. Skiers love the glassy, uncrowded conditions. Adventurers and kids love to go to Bobs River Place where our friend Bob has turned his riverfront property into a natural water park.

The State of Florida owns most of the riverfront and that makes it both special and secluded from crowds. You will find few homes and very few rentals on this river because of its protected status. See the 'Real Florida' Come see what inspired Stephen Foster to write the state song 'Way Down upon the Suwannee River'. See our website for more info.

Great river house

  • 4 of 5
We loved the house. Very comfortable for us and grand kids. The kitchen and living room were great. Only complaint was the bed in masterbedroom was not comfortable. The screen porch was in need of repair, as was the dock. I understand both are being repaired. Would definitely return.

Great, Relaxing long weekend

  • 5 of 5
We went to the house for a quiet long weekend away to get unplugged. We really enjoyed the wonderful view off the large porch, and from the living room of the river flowing by. The house was situated in a neighborhood as described, the property was quiet and serene. The house was clean when we arrived and we had plenty of room. The owner was helpful and prompt in answering all questions. We will recommended this property to others, and are hoping to return again sometime. Review the owners agreement closley it is very acurate to description. It is located in a pretty small town, so you must do some driving, activities aside from being at the house right on the river, fishing, or canoeing on the river. Within 30 minutes of driving ther are many Florida state parks and springs to visit.. ei..O'Leno State Park disappering river Located along the banks of the scenic Santa Fe River, a tributary of the Suwannee River. and other springs..Also the Dudley Farm Historic State Park Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, this state park demonstrates the evolution of Florida farming from the 1850s Would recommend this property for one or two small families looking for a quite time away from home!

Paradise!

  • 5 of 5
Hidden gem in "old Florida"! Everything you would need in a home is all provided. Our stay was fabulous...The water was very high but that still made for great fishing off the dock~We are planning our next trip back! Loved every minute of our stay!

Gorgeous setting but somewhat disappointed.

  • 2 of 5
What an amazing setting this river house was in! Was able to watch the deer from the porch graze on the lawn. Watching the wild turkey was a treat and the sounds of the frogs and crickets quite soothing. We were disappointed that we could not sit on the wonderful screened porch because of the torn screens. The mosquitos were quite bad and not only did they get into the porch from the broken screen but came in under the poorly hung door to the porch. My suggestion is that you freshen up this place a bit. Buy new bed pillows, wash the spreads, clean the oven, neaten up the linen closet. We had a hard time finding sheets which fit the beds. The ones laid out were the wrong sizes. Also, every time I tried to move the shower curtain, the curtain fell off the rod. We also were not warned about the miles of dirt roads you had to travel to get to the house. It was not a problem for us, but was for the other couple who was going to stay with us. This place has potential and maybe at one time it was in better shape. It would take very little to get it back that way. I am hesitant about returning. Wonderful house with lots of space, though.
