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.

Simply relaxing

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I went there for our anniversary and it was perfect. The river house is a very clean and cozy home. The view of the river is amazing and my husband and I pretty much just sat on the patio and stared at it. There are two very large canoes and two kayaks. I took one of the kayaks upriver and it was just beautiful. The current was very manageable too. The bed was also very comfortable. We plan on making it one of our regular little getaways!

Enjoyed our weekend getaway at the Spring House.

  • 5 of 5

The accommodations are well appointed, clean and comfortable. The view of the river is beautiful and access is easy. We enjoyed canoeing the river, going for a refreshing dip, relaxing on the dock in the evenings and having coffee on the screened porch in the mornings.

I've rented a number of times. Owners are great. Always clean. What a wonderful way to start the day sitting on the porch with a cup of coffee viewing the river. Will come back again.

The home is located on the Santa Fe river with canoes, kayaks, and a very clean home that is perfect

  • 5 of 5

The home is clean, comfortable and cozy. Inside the owner has all the amenities you could need and outside a very peaceful property directly on the river. We enjoyed playing shuffleboard, cornhole, roasting marshmallows, and sitting by the fire. The home is about 20 minutes from Ichetucknee springs which is an unbelievable national treasure. Thank you again for a great weekend with my family!
