About Cary & Val Day
After years in the business world and living in a large city we decided to slow down our pace of life. The St Joe River held wonderful memories for us and our 4 children so this seemed to be the best place to enjoy our grown family, grandkids and friends. This is why we fondly refer to living life on 'river-time'.
Cary & Val Day purchased this house in 2002
Why Cary & Val Day chose St Maries
Because of the natural beauty, slow pace of life, friendly small town atmosphere and looking for a new challenge, we decided to build a bed and breakfast along the St Joe River. We have loved our guests but constantly hear how they would love to return with their families and enjoy our home. Thus, we decided to offer our home just for this purpose and now people can enjoy what we have been enjoying.
What makes this house unique
This custom built home, decorated by the artist/owner has drawn compliments from many. This beautiful home in a picturesque rural setting offers the ability to slow down your pace, enjoy mother nature at its best and have the water to play in are the makings of a perfect vacation for couples or a family. Our home is beautiful yet comfortable offering plenty of things for everyone to enjoy. The deck chairs will be just the right place to read that book you have been wanting to get to, sunbathe in privacy while watching boaters and skiers go by, take time to have FUN again while roasting marshmellows in the firepit right beside the river. Biking trails and scenic byways offer endless beauty.
