Can't wait to go back!!

  • 5 of 5

This house is truly amazing and so is Karen the host!! We had THE best time, and cannot wait to go back!! The house was stocked with everything you could possibly need, and super clean. The docks and fire pit were a huge hit also!!! Thank you Karen for the most memorable weekend...My 84 year old mom said it was the best birthday she ever had:)

Peaceful place

  • 5 of 5

What a peaceful, sweet place to stay. Seemingly, in the middle of nowhere, but, all the better.

The owner is very responsive and gracious.

Firewood for the fire pit a blessing.


No Wi-Fi and limited cell service which is perfect.

Just bring your bath soap and shampoo.

We enjoyed geocaching nearby at one of the springs.

Simply Paradise

  • 5 of 5

God's country. Peaceful, relaxing, quiet, natural beauty. Our family of 8 stayed Wed-Sun. The pics do NOT show justice. Karen was wonderful during contact. We thank them for sharing their cabin. Lots of room, beautiful yard, plenty of blankets, sheets, cookware. Three decks, and floating dock. Caught a few fish. Granddaughters loved the beach area. Son, daughter and spouses enjoyed the fire pit. We all played a few games of pingpong. The back porch was highly used, lots of seating, excellent view of the river. Everyone kayaked and fished. Town is a short country drive. Vets park in town with pioneer house and playground. Few places to eat in town. Beautiful courthouse and Main St to walk. Safe, and friendly towns people. Wifi lacking, not a problem for us. Very close to state park. A wonderful Thanksgiving away for our family. Thank you.

Owner's Response: awesome that you got to experience AND enjoy every bit of the river & more. We are so Blessed to have this place & sharing it with others is our pleasure & then to get a review like this makes it even better. The fishing...The kayaking...The relaxing on the back porch watching the river flow is all part of the experience of old Florida.

Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

Our stay could not have been more relaxing and peaceful. The craftsmanship of the woodwork gave the place a rustic appeal. The property is so well maintained and clean! A trip out to the dock at night to gaze at the night sky was a spiritual experience.

My only suggestion would be to replace the mattress in the master bedroom. I woke up sore both days, but it wouldn't deter me from staying again.

Thank you for sharing this little gem with the world!
