Beautiful Stilt Home Directly On Weeki Wachee River
average rating of 4.8 based on 5 reviews


  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here in January and February of 2016. We loved being on the river and seeing the manatee, dolphin, and river otters right in front of the dock. We could literally throw a rock into and across the river from our beautiful deck. The birds were also fascinating to watch as they were entertaining and beautiful. The house was spacious and very well appointed with everything you would have at home. Very nice bedrooms and beds were very comfy. The living area was spacious and a great place to entertain or just relax. The home also has a 4 very large garage and carport for all your toys. We loved the home so much that we have already booked for next winter and look forward to coming back. Oh, yeah, restaurants are a plenty within a mile or two and we never had a meal that wasn't delicious and a fun place to dine out.

thanks Cliff and Betsy for a wonderful place to stay

Relaxing in style at the river!

  • 5 of 5

Loved our time at the River House fall of 2015! Everything from the kitchen to the bedrooms to the balcony view of the river was perfect! They have thought of every little amenity to make for a great time. Spending time just relaxing was wonderful! Spotting the manatees was a thrill! We saw adults and babies. We never tired of watching for what was coming by on the tide! Can't wait to visit again.

Great home, owners and location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the River House February and March 2015. Everything promised in the listing was true. Spacious home, well equipped kitchen, comfortable beds and a dock on the river for our boat! Being at the end of a dead end street, it was very quiet. Great helpful neighbors. Manatees feeding near the dock many times. A few dolphin too. I even caught fish right off the dock!

It was a short trip down the river to other fishing spots, and out to the Gulf to explore up and down the coast.

We highly recommend this rental. Nothing bad to say!

Wonderful two month stay

  • 5 of 5

This home is fantastic! My husband and I shared the home with friends for two months last winter. Everything was super, very well appointed kitchen, spacious bedrooms, terrific views from all of the windows in the great room, kitchen, and dining room of the Weeki Wachee river and surrounding wetlands.

We loved the location. The river setting is so peaceful and we enjoyed watching the manatees, dolphins, and other wildlife.

The home is well-supplied and furnished. There was everything available that we could possibly need or want. We appreciated the owners courtesy and friendliness.

We would love to return some day.

River Retreat

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our one month stay at the Smith's River Retreat. We found the home to be clean, spacious and comfortable for 4 adults with a kitchen that was extremely well equipped. We looked forward daily to the many manatees and the occasional dolphin and otter that swam by as we relaxed on the deck overlooking the Weeki Watchee River. The canoe/kayak journey up the river was a bonus experience. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Cliff and Betsy's home to anyone contemplating visiting the Weeki Watchi area.
