We had a great time. The cabin was exactly what we were looking for. It was secluded but not far from the grocery store and other places. It was a perfect getaway for two.

About the neighbourhood
Rum Island Cabin is a cozy cabin nestled in a small clearing in the north florida woods on our 10 acre property. A short walk leads to a small, pristine spring at the Santa fe River. Rum Island Spring Park is a 1/4 mile walk through the woods. Swimming, picnicking, snorkeling and floating are the major activities. There are many beautiful and diverse state parks within 5-15 miles that offer swimming, cave-diving, hiking, birding, and relaxing in nature. Enjoying nature in our peaceful, rustic surroundings is our main draw. The charming town of High Springs is 6 mi. away with unique shops and restaurants. Gainesville, and the University of Florida, is 25 miles away and offers museums, events, music and booming nightlife.
There are several canoe/kayak outfitters close by...one righ...
