Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful stay! You have a gorgeous house and we enjoyed it. We loved that we had no phones or tv for the weekend. It was great just to hang out and enjoy the beautiful weather. Thank you for letting us stay at your cabin. We will be booking again in the future.

Beautiful, quiet spot to relax and have fun!

We loved our trip to the Suwannee River Cabin! The house was adorable and had everything we needed for our stay. The kayaks were a huge bonus the river was quiet and calm and we could kayak across without much boat traffic. We will definitely visit again and give it a big thumbs up!

Great place to get away!

  • 5 of 5

Loved this vacation home. I rented this with some friends for a place to unplug and disconnect and it was perfect. It's off the beaten path - but directions were very thorough. The fully-equipped cabin is just as scenic in person. We got a lot of use from the fire pit - just watching the river activity (jumping sturgeons are fun). My only suggestion would be more pest control; it is summer in Florida and you're among a lot of trees.

I would recommend it and definitely consider going back.
