Great house and property, beautiful natural setting

  • 5 of 5

We were a family group coming together for Thanksgiving. So, right off the bat, the kitchen was spacious, plenty of cabinets & a large frig! 2 living areas, nice size bedrooms! The house was wonderful. Nice porch on the front and a great lift to bring your belongings upstairs. But even though the inside was everything you could want....the real winner was the outside. It is a large 5 acre property, and Mr. Carl has done a beautiful job of making it so family friendly and useable. There is volleyball and horseshoes in the front, along with the docks, under the house is a large area with a grill and picnic tables for eating & hanging out. My boys especially loved the TV screen downstairs to watch college football! I love the back part of the property that looked like a park. Cleared enough to walk through and yet beautifully cleared to show off the trees.

Mr. Carl was gracious and helpful.. He was wonderful to work with. This is a house and property that has been well loved and well kept. It was a pleasure and my kids tell me we're going back. I say AMEN! OH, and there were hookups for our RV that we brought along for an extra bedroom as needed. Just a perfect place. Thank you Robert and Elaine!!!

Really beautiful location, and comfortable home!!

  • 4 of 5

The owner was uber prompt in his response to all the questions I asked before our stay. The description for the amenities and property were very on point.

We are foodies and love to cook/eat, so having a kitchen that was well stocked with plenty of good equipment to allow us to do so, was a plus!

The property was gorgeous and allowed us the ease to kayak on the Suwanee, go for a stroll, play badminton or just take in the beauty of the birds (great blue herons, owls, etc.) and gorgeous water!

The neighbor seemed close at first glance, but they were super respectful. Hopefully we weren't too noisy laughing and enjoying our stay, for him!

We rented a pontoon boat for half a day from Yellow Jacket RV park to explore more of the beautiful Suwannee River! That was a blast! It's only about 30 min drive from the house.

Thank you Bob and Elaine for allowing us to experience your space, we had a relaxing and beautiful time!

If one enjoys this part of Florida like we do, this is the perfect base of operations for the area. It is like a destination at our destination. We will definitely be coming back.

Great getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The house was very clean and included everything we needed - the kitchen was well stocked! The dock was lovely and we enjoyed fishing off of it. The house even included horseshoe pits, volleyball court, and canoes for your use. Personal favorite was the elevator/lift to bring everything upstairs - huge bonus when you're bringing an ice chest of food!! Internet and phone signal weren't great, but the purpose was to enjoy our teen/adult children AWAY from screens :)
