Check my calendar and latest info on wwww.fishhorseshoebeach.comm. This stilt house is located in a natural and secluded area known as
Horseshoe Beach: Florida's Last Frontier, and the best area to get
scallops when in season. The grass flats fishing inshore offers
Reds, Trout, etc... not to mention the offshore grouper. There are
no better flats in Florida than this area.
20 minutes from Cross City to the West and Steinhatchee to the
North, this quiet little community resembles Key West in the early
days, before tourism hit. Horseshoe Beach is a key-like community
shaped like a horseshoe with an elaborate system of canals. The
canal system offers protection for boats from the wake of the gulf,
yet you can reach the open gulf waters 300 ft from the boat dock in
the back of the house.
Horseshoe Beach is a place where you can go get away and enjoy
Florida's Nature Coast, a.k.a., the "Big Bend". There are several
off road trails to cruise in vehicles, bikes, or by foot in which
you will see some of the elite wildlife. The activities here are
endless, but it's also very nice if you just want to hang out and
enjoy the serenity and the key-like atmosphere.
Our favorite thing to do here is pull up the traps in the back dock
and boil up some delicious blue-crabs which are available year-
round. It is always nice to catch your dinner by rod & reel, by
swimming, or by simply pulling on a rope connected to one of the
three crab traps tied to the dock. FYI- the boat ramp is one block
away and is an easy walk back from the house to pick up your vehicle.
The house is very simple yet has everything you need and is very
comfortable. Please call anytime to reserve.
