Private Steinhatchee Cabin with Dock and Boat Ramp

Bedrooms 2
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 2 - 3 nights


About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Living area, 2 full Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Congratulations! You have just found one of the best kept secrets of Florida vacations. If you are looking for a quiet, relaxing retreat then you're in the right place.

This cabin has plenty of room for friends and family to enjoy a day of activity outside and a relaxing evening around the campfire.

Bring your canoe or kayak and launch right from the ramp in front of the house and paddle down the creek right to the Gulf.

You may also bring your own boat for a great weekend of fishing, easy launching from the private ramp at the cabin and store it in the covered slip for the duration of your stay.

Most boats 24' or smaller are fine but boats with t-tops are discouraged since there is a low bridge to go under. Our screened fish cleaning house makes cleaning the day's catch convenient. The Gulf is a short, 20-minute boat ride.

Housekeeping services are paid in cash at checkout.

Casual laid back experience.

Scallops right out of Rocky creek a touch south!! Wonderful time. We came in twice in pontoon boat and windshield wouldn't fit under little bridge timed the tide wrong. No worries we just jumped out and walked across bridge to house, super short walk and nicepeople let us take out boat at there house one spot before bridge. Second day I drove boat up creek and met husband after he grabbed trailer. So no one worry about this. Wonderful time!!

Splendid Serenity...Old FL Beauty

  • 5 of 5

My family spend a wonderful weekend at the property to celebrate a significant birthday and it delivered the perfect setting. The weather was cold and the cabin proved snug, cozy, and well-appointed for every comfort we needed. The kitchen is fully equipped and perfect for a food-loving family. We enjoyed shared meal preparation, including grilling one evening. The setting is tranquil, and though we left our kayak on top of the car given the cold, it is clearly a marvelous paddle-about spot that we look forward to exploring by boat when we visit in warmer temperatures. Vanessa is a great host...she was available and responsive throughout the planning process and during our stay, giving helpful information, recommendations, and ensuring that we had everything we needed at our disposal. We will definitely be returning for some warm-weather adventures in scalloping!

Love it here.

  • 5 of 5

This was our (I think) fifth time staying at the cabin at Rocky Creek. We would never stay anywhere else -- it is clean, has everything we need, and is perfect for cooking, campfires and enjoying time together. <3 Thanks, Vanessa, for being a great VRBO host. <3

Misrepresented to sleep 8 people!

  • 2 of 5

We enjoyed our visit, but we're disappointed that the accommodations would not really sleep 8 as advertised. The 2 bedrooms will handle 4 people, but the other 4 will have to sleep on a couch that does not even pull out, a futon, and a chair/ottoman. For this price, I expected more.

Owner's Response: I'm very sorry to hear that you were disappointed. I try to be very clear about what to expect and I have had 8 people there comfortably in the past. I do appreciate your feedback and will be more clear in the future. Thanks, Vanessa
