Why Bonnie Peters chose Welaka
We love it! My husband grew up in Palatka and fished this part of the river all his life! He has long admired this property, but we never dreamed we would ever own such a treasure. And now for a very limited time we will share it with you. An opportunity not to be missed!
100% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 7 days before arrival date.
Back for the second time. Even better than the last! Beautiful home, beautiful yard. We got a chance to meet Bonnie this trip, she is delightful! Hope to return again.
If you enjoy Florida, but not the traffic, this rental is for you.
My husband and I stayed at Riverhouse at Fiddler's Cove for five weeks. It was wonderful; so peaceful, private and quiet. The rental is beautifully decorated, clean, comfortable and well stocked. The large deck made it easy to fish the river and watch the gorgeous sunsets. We caught and released over a hundred fish including bluegill, red breasted sunfish, blue catfish, blue crabs, and even a stingray. Wildlife including black and whitetail deer, turkeys, squirrels, small alligators, turtles and many different birds including eagles, osprey and great blue heron visited the property daily. We enjoyed picking and using the lemons, grapefruit, and oranges from the trees on the property. The area is wonderful for walking and everyone is friendly. Several restaurants are within a short driving distance.
We are ready to go back!!!!
I cannot say enough great things about this property AND the property owner, Bonnie. The house is in impeccable condition and the decorating touches are precious. It is well stocked with things you just don't think to bring from home that you always need. We had fresh juice almost every morning from the fruit trees on the property and the juicer in the kitchen!! The view from all of the windows is to die for as well as the sunsets from the dock. We would have been fine to never leave the house and the beautiful large yard.. The time on the dock was my favorite! We saw lots of deer and wild turkeys in the yard. At night, you hear nothing but sweet wildlife noises while gazing at countless stars. Our family is ready to go back. It was a very relaxing vacation, which is just what we hoped!
Great lake house rental
Our vacation visit was in May 2018, during the new moon phase. The weather was rainy & the fishing was not great. We did not catch any of those BIG BREAM.
The secluded lake house was perfect & had everything you needed.
We had to reschedule our trip & Bonnie was able to accommodate us.
The gator was in the cove. 3 deer came to visit each day & a raccoon was in one of the trees.
We also saw a manatee eating while fishing close to dock.
The dock is a good football field away & it's up hill on the way back to the house.
I suggested to Bonnie to get a golf cart for the travelling back & forth to the dock.
The closest grocery store was 20 minutes away in Palatka.
I would highly recommend this as a quiet vacation spot.
Thank you for allowing us to enjoy your home away from home. The house is very clean and completely furnished. It is secluded enough for deer and turkeys to walk through the yard every couple of hours. I plan to return next spring!
