Overview

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.

Honeymoon Paradise

  • 5 of 5

The property was perfect for our quiet honeymoon escape! We loved sitting on the big beautiful porch watching the river! The photos don't do it justice! It's a little gem on the river!

Relaxing, quiet vacation.

  • 5 of 5

I agree with the other reviews. This property was perfect for us, three adults birding and wildlife watching. We explored the area's nature preserves and kayaked on the river. We rented kayaks at Manatee Springs where the concessionaire also has great barbeque.( The owner is a three tour veteran of Iraq and Afghanistan.)

About 1/2 of our days we never left the property, as it was as peaceful and beautiful a place as we could find, with lots of birds to view right from the large screened-in porch. The picture does not do the property justice.

The rooms are large and the children's room is decorated with murals of local wildlife. We would love to spend more time here.

The one problem we had was a clogged toilet. It was replaced immediately.

Such a wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time a the river house. The home itself was exceptional with fully equipped kitchen that overlooked the river and the large screened porch was perfect for anytime. The trip was so peaceful. I'm looking forward to returning in the future. The owners were so easy to deal with and gave us lots of information for our stay.

Peaceful retreat with a beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

We spent our days enjoying Manatee Springs and Ichetucknee Springs State Parks. We tried to visit Bob's River Place, but unfortunately it was closed. Maybe next time! We did find a roadside flea market that had great prices on fishing rods! Our evenings at home cooking on the grill and taking in the view of the Suwanee River while we ate on the awesome oversized screened porch were perfect for unwinding an relaxing. Each night was capped off with quality time (yummy sm'mores, of course) around the fire pit in the backyard. (Tip: Bring folding chairs with you.) Akins BBQ is has great ribs and friendly service if you want to eat out. If you need peace and quiet, this is the place!
