Suwannee River cottage description

Leave the city traffic and congestion FAR behind when you visit the River Song Cottage on the Historic Suwannee River. Shaded by giant oak trees this cottage features a large deck overlooking the river. Also a second large deck right on the bank of the river. This is the perfect place to escape, relax, enjoy the REAL Florida and all its wildlife.

Location is in Lafayette County, five miles north of Mayo. This is 35 miles (45 minutes) from Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park and 40 miles (55 minutes) from Stephen Foster Memorial Park.

Maximum # of guests is 6 and is strictly enforced.

Snowbirds welcome! Check with us for deep discounts on extended stays in the months of NOVEMBER, DECEMBER, JANUARY, FEBRUARY, MARCH!

EMAIL FOR AVAILABILITY!!! We keep a master calendar on our properties and do not always update VRBO, so email with requested dates for quick availability check.

Lafayette Blue Springs State Park 1/4 mile down river, numerous natural springs nearby. Just 30 miles from the Gulf Coast beaches. 25 miles to Spirit of the Suwannee Music park. 30 miles to Steinhatchee. 35 Miles to the Ichetucknee River State Park for tubing on a crystal clear spring-fed river. This area is a diver's paradise!

45 Miles to Wild Adventures Amusement and Water Park - awesome rides, water park and live music shows included in ticket price. Loads of fun without the crowds and traffic of Central Florida theme parks.

The Cottage is completely furnished and has recently been renovated with new carpet and ceramic tile. Bring your food and fishing pole. There is a boat launch within one mile. We have two canoes and two kayaks on site, with paddles and life vests. This is a great get away for couples or active families! The interior is nicely decorated.

Initial contact via email is preferred and we will send additional information on the property including a list of frequently asked questions.
