Astor house description
We have what you are looking for! A relaxing riverfront home on the beautiful St. John's River that is easily accessible to everything central Florida has to offer. What we knew as home growing up has been recently updated with new bath fixtures, floor covering, beds, etc. We are confident you will feel comfortable in this well-kept environment. Kick off your shoes and relax in front of the big screen television or play cards and board games in the great room which has a beautiful view of the river.
Feel free to bring your own boat, tie up to our dock, and have fun fishing, skiing or cruising down the river. Like to travel light? Then just bring your gear and fish from our private dock.
The excitement of NASCAR and Daytona International speedway, the beauty of Daytona's beaches, and the enjoyment of great outdoor activities like golf at LPGA are only 30 minutes away.
If you want to visit with Mickey Mouse, Walt Disney World Resorts are a little over an hour away, along with all of the other fun Orlando attractions. If hiding out from the rest of the world is your pursuit, then grab a refreshing beverage, relax in one of the chairs at the end of the dock, and watch your cares drift away.

FFA Chapter Officer Retreat
FFA Chapter Officer Retreat
We recently conducted a four day and officer training for Chapter Officers. The property was perfect, there were 7 teenagers and 2 adults with plenty of accommodations. We brought one queen size air mattress for the one male student, but there was room for more. The house had plenty of space for everyone, including a large dining room table that was great for planning sessions and a spacious great room with large screen tv. The kitchen has plenty of counter space which worked well as the kids had to prepare each meal in teams of 2 or 3. We conducted quite a few team building activities in the yard and the river front was beautiful for team and individual pictures. Located in Astor on the St. Johns River, it is easy travels to the Volusia County Beaches (about 30-40 minutes) or natural springs such as Alexander and Juniper. Great for fishing or boating. The only possible caveat was that there is some road noise from the nearby bridge at night in the front bedroom, but it was not enough to disturb our sleep. I would definitely recommend this house to others. Perfect of small retreats, large families, or 2-3 small families staying together.

Why the Owner Chose Astor:
Astor has a rich history of southern hospitality and old Florida charm. It was originally established as a vacation spot for New York socialites and still welcomes visitors from around the US. Fishing and relaxing on the St. John's River are still popular activities with the locals and guests. It has been our family home for over 50 years and we never tire of the tranquility and beauty of the St. John's River.
