Overview

High Springs House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 3 Baths (Sleeps 10-12)

This is a unique, historic home cantilevered over the Santa Fe River and a short distance from Poe Springs Park. All glass on one side with 180 degree river views, it is newly remodeled with comfort in mind. From the giant sectional sofa and big screen tv in the great room to the down comforters and high quality linens, it is an incredible place to relax and unwind.

Hop into one of our *canoes or *kayaks and paddle down for a swim at Blue or Ginnie Springs. *(There is an additional charge for use of boats) Stay in and read a book on the hammock, fish from the dock, watch birds from the sitting room, do yoga on our spacious upstairs deck, or paint the beautiful scenery all while listening to the soundtrack of the frogs, birds, and paddlers floating by. Cook a gourmet dinner in our well-equipped kitchen and enjoy an evening on the deck under the tree canopy, or head into historic downtown High Springs for a great meal out and live music after an afternoon of antiquing.

Go tubing on the crystal clear Itchetucknee River or take a leisurely walk through O'leno State Park. Take a day trip and enjoy the coast at nearby Cedar Key, or the multitude of charming small towns and springs in the region. Drive twenty-five minutes to Gainesville and enjoy the museums, shops, and restaurants that surround the beautiful University of Florida campus, or take in a Gator football game. Ken's Den is truly the ideal place to relax and unplug.

Beyond Amazing

  • 5 of 5
We came into town for an event, but we loved this property so much we ended up spending most of our time here instead!

The property manager was very sweet, and made sure that she went over anything that she thought we'd like to know. We had such a great time hanging out and spending some much needed time together.

This was honestly the best stay any of us have had for a long while - and that was due, largely, to the fact that the owners/property manager have worked so diligently to make sure that you have access to whatever you could possibly want to do in the house. The closets are stocked with board games, lifejackets, oars, extra pillows, extra chairs... you name it! The house was spotless and comfortable, and we spent a good while just looking over the art and the framed pieces. You can tell that it took a long time to get this house looking as beautiful as it does.

Personally, I loved the floors. I've never seen a brick floor anywhere, and I was a little nervous that it might scratch feet, but it was smooth and the cool brick felt great!

The linens and towels were also amazing. The extra dollar was absolutely put into making sure that guests would be comfortable.

I am so grateful for our stay in this house - none of us wanted to leave, but we will definitely be back.

What a fun surprise - right on the Santa Fe River.

  • 4 of 5
A perfect place for relaxing and having family time together. Home was very well stocked - especially with kitchen items and condiments. Beds extremely comfortable - A perfect setting for early morning coffee on the deck or cocktails on the dock. We would certainly return sometime in the future.

Loved Ken's Den!

Our family had a wonderful vacation at Ken's Den. The house was clean, comfortable and had everything we needed. The balconies were a great place to enjoy cooking out and enjoying the river and outdoors. The dock was great to use fishing or jumping into a canoe or kayak and taking off down the river. The management was very helpful in making our stay perfect! They knew we needed extra life jackets for small children and purchased brand new ones that were wating for us on our arrival. Our entire family agress that we would all go back and stay."Thank You"

Two old friends and I shared this house for just a few days but the magic of the mist on the river as we woke and the comfort and safety of the place made us feel so well taken care of by the young caretaker and her family. Thanks to Tara for all she did to make our stay just right. Photos accurate, property clean and well maintained. We went to the Great Outdoors for dinner in High Springs and liked it. Lots of things to do out doors.
