About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 6 Sleeps

This is a two bedroom, one bath house on the banks of the Santa Fe river with a great view. We can easily accommodate up to six people with a double bed in one bedroom and a queen size bed in the other bedroom. There is also a futon sleeper in the living area. Wake up early and brew a pot of complimentary coffee or hot chocolate and enjoy the singing birds and other wildlife from the full length, screened deck while viewing the river. We have just recently added a floating dock to improve swimming access and watercraft launching.

Peaceful riverfront retreat

  • 5 of 5

It's only been a day and we already want to return. The Spring House was the perfect getaway for our family of three and we enjoyed all of the amenities the house had to offer. Luckily, I read prior reviews and came equipped with print outs for directions to the house, to Branford and area springs - we had no cell phone or internet service which got us to spend time in the outdoors and with each other. Our 5 year old was definitely thankful for the dish network so she could have her disney channel at night and early morning. Just within the yard and on the dirt road leading to the house we saw so much wildlife - deer, armadillos, all types of birds and gigantic grass hoppers. The sounds of the bugs, frogs, etc at night was so neat for our daughter to hear - especially since she's born and raised in a city. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed for cooking and we utilized the grill and fire pit as well. We at our meals on the screened in porch enjoying the river view. We took a canoe up river, a little over a mile away, to a boat ramp area and fished our way down to the Spring House dock and our daughter loved it. My husband walked back to get our car later that afternoon. We didn't take the floats to the springs but they are there if you have room in your car. We also loved the ring toss game and cornhole. As you can tell - we had a great time! We look forward to returning!

Can't wait to return 👍

  • 5 of 5

This was such an awesome rental. The owner really goes the extra mile to ensure that everything you need for a fun, relaxing trip is readily available. Canoes, kayaks, life jackets, fishing poles, floats, games and so much more are included. The river is literally right in the back yard with a private dock! We can't wait until our next visit!

The Springhouse is close to Ichetucknee Springs State Park, Oleno State Park (where the Santa Fe goes underground for 3 miles), the River Rise (where it reemerges), Ginnie and Blue Springs, Rum Island park and Sandy Point (where the Santa Fe joins the Suwannee). There are approximately 5 miles of state maintained hiking trails adjacent to the oasis. You will be within viewing and walking distance of the community boat ramp and spring.
