Overview

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.

A Great Little Place for a Get-Away!

  • 5 of 5

This cozy spot was perfect for us to unwind for an extended weekend. The house is small but comfy and offers a great variety of things to do. We enjoyed the kayaks and canoes, and a float down the Ichetucknee Springs nearby, as well several fun games for relaxing afterward. Thanks to Carolyn, our wonderful host!

Wonderful little vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We rented a large house just down the road for a large family Thanksgiving get together and needed a little more space and this house was perfect. The location is great with all the equipment you need to enjoy the river. It was spotless and comfy. Perfect for couple or small family getaway. Don't expect internet but this is not why you go to the rive anyway it is a beautiful place. My GPS actually took me right to the house by my wife's did not so do get good directions. Highly recommend this cute vacation home.

Great stay!!

  • 5 of 5

Great place on the river!! Tubes, kayaks, canoes, fishing poles, games available to use. The house was clean and comfy! Carolyn was very pleasant and quick to respond to any questions. We had difficulties getting a good signal for Internet, but that is expected, come prepared with directions to the house before hand .

Spring house is such a comfortable house with all conveniences needed for an escape from the everyday! Prior to arrival, Ms. Carolyn is quick to answer any questions we had and at check-in she provided a wealth of information. Great trip and would return!

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the Spring House, Carolyn was incredibly responsive and helpful with our booking all the way from Germany.

The house is in a wonderful quiet setting and is equipped with everything you might need for a family getaway.

We were a family of 5 with the youngest being 12 years old and he particularly enjoyed learning how to fish with the rods that were provided at the house. He ended up catching 5 fish that day! Wonderful memories!

The canoes and kayaks were also a lot of fun and we enjoyed making smores in the fire pit.

It is true when Carolyn says: you only need to bring your clothes, everything else is provided.

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. You can fill the day swimming, fishing, snorkeling, floating, diving, hunting. Antiquing in High Springs and Fort White, and eating in Branford or Bell, there is plenty to look forward to daily.
