Truely fantastic

  • 5 of 5

When you first walk in you are welcomed into a large, stunning open room of wonderful woodwork including Kendal’s handmade furniture. The view of the river is amazing. The kitchen has everything you need. The whole house Is so comfortable and immaculate. The best part was meeting Kendal and his bubbly, joyful spirit. Highly recommend.

One of the most beautiful places you will ever stay!

  • 5 of 5

Seriously...wow. So serene and peaceful, quiet and beautiful. The location is gorgeous, the river view, the trees in the backyard...unbelievably beautiful. The house itself is very tastefully decorated and an absolute delight. Well appointed kitchen, gorgeous deck. Did I mention the views? :-) If I had a complaint (and no house is perfect, so there is always a little room for improvement)--the hot water pressure in the bathrooms is really low, so taking a hot shower can be a bit of an exercise in patience. But that is definitely not something that would keep me from renting the house again. Two enthusiastic thumbs up.

Fantastic Property

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely beautiful property and home. Everything was smooth and easy. We had a very quiet, relaxing time hanging out on the Suwannee and even managed to catch a few fish...Highly recommended if you want a peaceful getaway. Thanks so much for sharing your home.

Peaceful, relaxing escape for the whole family

  • 5 of 5

The owners have thought of every little detail to make your stay here just perfect. The kitchen is stocked with all the pans and utensils you need, they even include coffee, filters, sugar and creamer! Bathrooms are stocked better than a nice hotel! It's a beautiful, cozy home that is so inviting after a day of playing outside in the big yards and canoeing down the river. Fishing poles, firepit with wood, yard games and indoor games. They have thought of everything!! I can't recommend this property enough. Such a gem!! We can't wait to come again someday :)
