Amazing house with total relaxation!

We rented this amazing home with another family for spring break. We knew from the description and photos this place was going to be great but we had no idea how perfect it was. Karen and Kendal truly made this vacation so incredible! The house has everything! We kept thinking what could they have done that we wished we had and the answer was "nothing". The house is stocked from basic food supply's to games and entertainment for everyone! Our children LOVED the swing the most and and the adults loved the peacefulness along with the simple fact our children could run around free with out worry. If you are looking for a great place to escape to with your family I highly recommend staying here!! You will not be disappointed

Beautiful stay on Suwannee

Super clean and very charming cabin with every amenity one could think of. We stay in north Georgia upscale rental cabins every Christmas and we were presently surprised with regard to the details the owners of this Florida rental provide their guests; above and beyond by a mile. The pros: although we didn't use them - canoes available, tons of games and kid friendly toys. Clean (cant mention that enough). Rope swing huge hit with 8 year old. Netflix, beds very comfortable (didn't try air mattress but appeared top of the line with pump). Local springs are fun and spectacular. Encountered manatee and tons of wildlife while tubing. Wifi handled two computers and IPads well. Has blue ray bring movies. Owners easy to communicate with. Cons: Very remote, do not rely solely on GPS, not accurate. Get good instructions from owners, had trouble locating initially. The game room down stairs is not air conditioned so really not a summertime activity. Lacks local dining options.
Anyone looking for quiet downtime in remote setting with beautiful view - this is it.

We just loved this peaceful remote spot. It was exactly as the listing and photos indicated, with all the necessary amenities, and a grocery store within 10 minutes. We hope to return next year.

exactly what i was looking for

this place is spectacular. my husband and i got married in the backyard and stayed for a week.

the owners were friendly and professional and easy to get a hold of and communicate with. the house was clean and well-stocked and composed of gorgeous wood craftsmanship. it felt welcoming and comfortable. we were able to get online (to email a little for work), and on the one night when the mosquitoes were out in force, we watched a movie on netflix.

most of our time was spent outdoors on the porch or down by the river itself. we were blessed with lovely weather. we ate outside, listened to the windchimes, sat on the swing and watched the water go by, strolled through the trees, had fires at night, made s'mores. we awoke with the sunrise and saw deer on the property. we watched the sunset on the river. we planned on taking the canoes out, but never got around to it. we did a lot of nothing, and it was delicious.

my only dislike of the stay--and it is a small one that does not matter in the scheme of things and would not deter me at all from coming here again--very weak water pressure for showering.

i recomend this property a thousand times over. if you are considering this property enough that you are actually reading this review, and you are a lover of nature and tranquility, do not hesitate to choose this home for your getaway. it's as perfect as it's gonna get.

cheers!

We had such a wonderful and peaceful stay at this riverhouse, perfect for rest and solitude! Loved the beautifual woodwork in the house and the beautiful view of the river. The kitchen was fully stocked with cookware, condiments and so much more than we imagined it would have. We took canoe rides and long bike rides on the nearby trails, so take your bikes! The boys loved playing pool downstairs and swinging on the awesome chair swing! We'll be back!
