Property description

This unique property is located on an Island in the St. John's River just South of Welaka Fl. The cabin is fully appointed and situated on a beautifully shaded river front lot which affords the opportunity to boat, fish, swim, waterski or just relax on the 40 foot porch and watch the river go by. The Ocklawaha River and Silver Glen, Salt and Juniper Springs are just a short trip by boat. A full service marina is just across the river and many dining and sightseeing opportunities including Sport bass guiding is available as well. Wildlife including deer are often seen on the Island along with aquatic birds and raptors.


Drayton Island was home to many Precolumbian Indians and has midden mounds and other traces of these early civilizations. If you don't own a boat one can be rented or you can drive your car on the island after crossing the ferry. Of course launch facilities and supplies are located conveniently on the Mainland.
