AREA RECREATION - Steinhatchee has been a famous fishing destination for generations, with freshwater and saltwater fishing year-round. Great fishing can be found both inshore, offshore and on the fly for big catches of redfish, grouper, sea trout, flounder, black bass, snapper, cobia and more. During the summer at Steinhatchee, scalloping takes center stage. The Steinhatchee area is known as 'Florida's Scallop Capital,' as the Gulf waters make an ideal habitat for these delicious shellfish. Scalloping season typically opens July 1 and ends September 24 each year. Other popular recreational opportunities in the area include bird watching, hiking, hunting, canoeing, kayaking, scuba diving, cave diving, nature photography, and visiting the many state parks in the area. Boat rentals and charters are available through the local marinas.

About Kim Fisher

Mark and Kim Fisher. We live in Gainesville, FL and are originally from NY. We have 3 teenage boys that love fishing and scalloping.

Kim Fisher purchased this house in 2007

Why Kim Fisher chose North Central Florida

We've been coming to Steinhatchee since 2003. Our kids have practically grown up here! The fishing and scalloping are better than anywhere else! We were fortunate to be able to build this house in 2007, and we make the short trip from Gainesville whenever we can!

What makes this house unique

Fisher's Cove is a beautiful 'home away from home' for vacationing, fishing, scalloping, or just taking a break from everyday life. It's very relaxing and a great opportunity to spend time with family and friends. We love coffee on the front porch overlooking the river. The grounds are beautifully landscaped. And of course, the fishing and scalloping!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great way to celebrate my Dad's 88th birthday! Lots of scallops, good weather and our favorite River House! Thanks Mark and Kim for letting us have a family reunion in Steinhatchee!

Annual Scalloping Trip

  • 5 of 5

Fishers Cove was everything we were looking for and more. It is the nicest house and area we've ever stayed in The Hatch. Super convenient to the grocery store and ice houses. The house is great with parking underneath, plenty of room and a short walk to the pool and dock. Steinhatchee Landing is very well kept and everyone there is super courteous. An awesome get away with very responsive and nice owners. Would recommend staying here to anyone!

Beautiful, comfortable and well provisioned.

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year staying in this home, and it is a great rental house! We vacation with our teens and our parents, so we need an actual, functional home. This is it! 3 full baths, 3 bedrooms and a bunk loft with comfy beds. The air works great and the kitchen is fun to cook in, with plenty of pots and dishes and utensils. The 2 outdoor porches are nice for hanging out, and the under house parking is awesome for smaller boats, and storage. Good location close to pool and room for us to play cornhole by our stairs. Scallops were plentiful this season, we had a blast!

Fishing getaway...

Nice property, very well equipped. The shower needed a thorough cleaning as there was stains in the grout, other than that, we were happy with the house.

Just Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

You'll be pleased with Fishers Cove. We have been using vacation rentals for our spring and fall trips for years. We have no complaints about this one. It was roomy and comfortable for 6 adults and 3 children and clean too! Great kitchen stocked with everything we needed. We really enjoyed the porches and porch swing with wonderful views of the river. The amenities in Steinhatchee Landings to include pool, hot tub, games, exercise facility, playground, petting zoo and docks on the river with fish cleaning tables were great. The Landings is quiet and beautiful and we were amazed at how immaculately the grounds are kept. We kept our boat at the Landings dock and with direct access to the gulf flats we fished, fished, fished. It was great! We did very well with the specs which was what we were after. Kim Fisher was great to work with. She did everything possible to ensure we were accommodated comfortably. If you have never experienced the "old Florida" it still exists in very few places. One place it can still be found is in Steinhatchee. If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle, relax, fish, enjoy nature but still be comfortable Fishers Cove at Steinhatchee Landings is for you! We can't wait to visit again. Thank you Kim for sharing your beautiful home with us. It was great!

Owner's Response: You hit the nail on the head - the Landings really is Old Florida, but you still have all the comforts at hand. Glad you enjoyed our house, the amenities, family time and caught fish! Let us know when you'd like to visit again!

Perfect Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time over New Year's Holiday at Kim's Place. She was quick to respond and was very accommodating. Three families vacation together and the house was absolutely perfect. We brought our boat, played tennis, rode our bicycles around, visited and fed the animals, archery, swimming pool and hot tub. We utilized everything what this wonderful house and the resort offer. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful place!!!
