With one bedroom plus a sleeping loft and one bathroom, this cabin offers an unparalleled view of the Rainbow River which can be enjoyed from the hammock, the hot tub, the outdoor dining area or the patio area. This family-friendly rental sits at about the midpoint of the river and is bordered by the Florida State Greenway.
The cabin is ideal for the nature lover. Spring brings the blue herons to nest in the cypress in front of the house. You can see the different creatures as the day progresses: ducks in the early morning, blue heron fishing at mid-day, the hummingbird and otters in the evening, and the owl at dusk. Nature provides an ever evolving show right from the comfort of the deck.
Activities include swimming, snorkeling, canoeing, and everyone’s favorite: tubing down the river. The spring water is 73 degrees year round so if that's not to your liking you can enjoy the screen enclosed hot tub overlooking the river.
The cabin has one bedroom and a sleeping loft and is suitable for up to four. Families of more than four are discouraged but may be considered on a case by case basis for an additional charge. Come enjoy the natural beauty of this gem the locals affectionately call the' Blue Run.'
I am about as close to Tom Sawyer as you will find. I grew up running around in the woods along the Rainbow River shirtless and barefoot. We would fish off of anything that would float and we had no qualms about sneaking out and bass fishing off of someone's dock when they left for the supermarket. My first home as an adult was an old cracker style house downstream on the Blue Run. (It was not much of a house). That house is still standing and will for a long time because it stayed in the family and now belongs to one of my closest friends.If you float down you can see the place on the east bank. You can recognize it on weekends because it is the only place with plastic lawn furniture set up out in the river. Give them a shout on the way by. They are fine southern folks. We all remember the river the way it was before it was discovered, but that was a long time ago and we can't undiscover it, so we welcome our visitors. I'm glad I got to see it then in its more natural state. I hope my visitors enjoy the river as much as I have. -Dwight

Come visit. You'll see.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It is a beautiful cabin and has everything you may need. Having the equipment to experience the river was great. The private setting is well maintained. Dwight made himself available if needed. We will stay again when we are in the area.
My family had a great time at the cabin. It was my wife and I and 4 kids ages 11,10,6 and 4. The kids fit just right in the loft area.
The kids spent all day fishing from the dock, kayaking, canoeing, paddle boarding and swimming. We were there for 4 weeks and never grew tired of playing on the river.
Nature was amazing seeing river otters literally running through the back yard, falcons, owls, fish, spiders, frogs and even a small gator.
Dwight provides all the water toys and fishing gear you need. Just come and enjoy the outdoors.
Our second summer here and we loved it! Everything you need for the perfect getaway on the river.
As a nature lover and huge fan of Florida's rivers and springs, I have to tell you that Blue Run Cabin is a stunning piece of heaven on Earth. If you love nature and Florida's pristine freshwater rivers, you will love this place. The cabin is small, but that is a great thing. You don't want to come here with an army of people. You want to come here with your closest loved ones and just disconnect and breathe and soak in the glory of the Rainbow River and this whole area. As far as Blue Run Cabin itself, it is perfect: extremely clean (and I am super picky about these things), huge kitchen, huge yard, renovated bathroom, and everything else you need including a really amazing charcoal grill (it cooks so well I fully intend to buy one for myself). I could go on and on about this place, but instead I am going to go and immediately book it for 2017!
Charming cabin amongst one of the prettiest settings on the river. We were so happy to be back!
Love the riverfront location. Tubing, kayaking on the Rainbow River is a great way to get away. It's our second time staying and I can't wait to comeback
