The house has central heat and air, if nature is not tuned just right. The owners are nearby in case you need directions or assistance of any kind. Smoking is permitted on the deck or outside, but due to the proximity of the river we do not allow pets. We have, also, just installed a floating dock for swimming or docking watercraft.

Wonder River Experience

  • 5 of 5

We just are wrapping up our girls weekend at the Spring House and can not say enough good things about our accommodations! The house was wonderful and clean. The grounds were beautiful and the river fantastic. We kayaked during the day and in the evening sat around the fire pit that was well supplied with wood ( thank you). The night sky provided wonderful stargazing. I would highly recommend the Spring House and plan to visit again if it’s available.

Nice location, nice place, close to springs

  • 4 of 5

Nice place right on santa fe river. Close to ichetucknee springs which is why we came.

It is down a dirt road a but but wasn't to bad.

Plenty of things to do at the house/river to keep us and kids having fun.

We did notice the area restaurant's seem to all be closed on Sunday.

Would stay again.

Fantastic River Rental

  • 5 of 5

This house is is cozy, super clean and has all the river toys and more! Our kids loved making s'mores in the firepit and fishing on the dock. The beds are comfy, the ac cold, and we were so comfortable and happy here! A family of deer visited everyday and the night air filled with owl and critter sounds. Yard is huge and view from the porch fantastic! Ichetucknee State park and Ginnie Springs very close by. This property is a gem and we highly recommend it!

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).
