Suwannee River house description

CALENDAR ON WEBSITE IS UP-TO-DATE!

This Modern Suwannee Riverfront home has 2 bedrooms and 2 baths; is 45 minutes from Gainesville, and is very close to 2 springs. It has awesome river views and a 2-level river deck with floating dock. It is located in the country yet close to town. All water activities are possible, including motor boating, jet skiing, canoeing and kayaking. Bring your watercraft, launch at the nearby ramp and tie up at our floating dock, or use one of our 2 kayaks or canoe. Go snorkeling in 72 degree water at nearby Pot Hole Spring or Rock Bluff Spring. And don’t forget Bob’s Place, a water park close by. The many activities available here should appeal to an active family with teenagers.

The quiet wooded location will also make for a perfect couple's getaway. It is NOT recommended for very young children (toddlers) or a party crowd.
Star watching from the dock is amazing. Wildlife in the area includes deer, owls, turkey, numerous birds and an occasional jumping sturgeon.

The house has a great room with fireplace and a modern kitchen. The master bedroom has a king bed, Jacuzzi tub and oversized shower with 2 shower heads. The 2 riverside porches have great views.
The house is equipped with Wi-Fi, Satellite TVs, VCR and DVD.
CARGO LIFT for luggage and groceries.
Parking is available underneath the house.
Other amenities include a fire ring with bench seating, picnic table, gas grill and hammock.
