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!!!

The Carl's have thought of everything. Such a comfy place right in the river. Can't wait to go bac

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at 7 different places on the suwannee and Santa Fe and by far this home was the best. There is electric and water at the boat dock. The covered dock was a so valuable being that we had a tropical storm the first weekend of our stay. The downstairs area is where we spend every meal. All the grills and the fans made it nice and cool and it kept the rain out. We had our family of 4 with 2 sons that are college age along with a nephew and family friend and there was plenty of room. We brought our ranger and had fun riding the trials and dirt roads all week long. We can not wait to go back. Thanks again for sharing your amazing home with our family. See ya soon. The Cooksey's

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! This property has everything you could possibly need to enjoy your trip. The house is very spacious and the outdoor area is great for so many outdoor activities. We were outside for most of our stay because of the way the outside is set up for comfort. Hope to be visiting again in the future!

Fantastic Venue for Family Fun

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time at this beautiful getaway. We brought our pontoon boat and were able to visit several of the surrounding springs. There is plenty of room and all the necessary amenities for family fun. We utilized the available games, gas grill and had campfires in the evenings. We highly recommend this property. Thanks Bob & Elaine. Hope to see you again next year.

A Very Special Place!

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect place for a family, friends or a couples quite weekend away!

Everything was thought of; the kitchen was large and well equipped. The bathrooms were spacious & the beds and bedding were comfortable. Overall the entire house was clean and sparkly and you can tell the owners take great pride in ownership.

And having access to a lift to get our bags, groceries, and belongings upstairs was a fantastic!!!

The outdoors were just as perfect! With multiple areas to relax & unwind. The dock was wonderful for fishing-- where our son caught the bass of a lifetime! The sturgeon were entertaining, elusive & majestic.

The upper covered deck overlooked the entire river, and was a great place for morning coffee. And the covered porch was where we ended each night as we enjoyed our dinner cooked on the grill; and then sat by the fire pit before we headed back to up to the house to turn in for the day. There were many pathways through the woods surrounding the property that we enjoyed exploring and if you have an ATV it would be a fantastic place for some riding and spelunking!

You will not be disappointed. We have stayed in MANY vacation homes throughout the years and this treasure on the Suwanee is one will look forward to visiting many times in the future.

Thank you Mr & Mrs. Carl for sharing your home with our family!
