“A great woodsy retreat!!!”

My husband and I really enjoyed our time here. The owner was super friendly and helpful. The cabin is cozy and nestled in the woods under a grove of oaks and hickories. It is just a short walk from the Santa Fe River and the Rum Island Park. We loved the peace and quiet. There was a small kitchen that had almost anything you could want, a DVD player, we didn't watch. It also had a nice fire ring, but conditions can cause a fire ban and a small charcoal grill, hammock and outside pick nick table, as well as a screen in porch. Lots of nice amenities and plenty of outdoor space. No wifi from the cabin, but we could go to the owners house and log on, but speed was glacial. Definitely the place to go if you want to get a away from it all. We would definitely stay again.

“Great”
Reviewed 17 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

My daughter and I stayed for three days,we totally enjoyed our mini vacation,the cabin has everything you would need. Only thing you need to bring is food you want to cook.It is 7 miles from the Ichetucknee springs.That is why I picked the cabin so we could canoe on the springs. and the cabin is within walking distance of a spring in front of the cabin beyond the trees.Maryanne the owner was wonderful,very helpful.

“Awesome”
Reviewed 8 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

This was my first time in this area of Florida. It was absolutely amazing and beautiful. I got extremely lucky with this place to stay at the renters Mary Ann and Dave are awesome and super friendly. Their place is gorgeous. We saw deer every day on the property. The back spring and Rum island is beautiful. I loved this place and will most certainly be back again. :)

“sweet cabin stone throw from the river”

This is a delightful spot to base yourself in, if you want to kayak the Santa Fe River or walk over to Rum Island. It is also close to High Springs. The cabin is equipped for cooking lightly and private. It is a great secluded spot. The property is privately owned and the owner's house is at the other end of the 10 acre parcel, privacy but attention if need anything.
