The futon in the river room opens to a Full size bed and is a complete 7" spring mattress that is very comfortable, (Not like some of the pull out sofas that are very uncomfortable). The kitchen seems larger than it is because the doorway wall area entering into the kitchen has been enlarged to give it a large open feeling. The Kitchen is equipped with cookware, utensils and anything else that you may need. There is plenty to keep you busy if you are into nature, like hiking or biking. Mud Springs and the Welaka State Forest is close by. If you prefer to relax and unwind, lay by the pool and catch up with your favorite novel. There is a boat dock to have your boat on-site while you are vacationing and it can be left in the water for the duration of your stay. Welaka is a small one red-light town with parks and recreation right in the town center. There is a local pharmacy and several watering holes that the locals and visitors alike enjoy. The closest grocery store is in Crescent City which is about a 15 to 20 minute drive. The corner convenience store has most items in stock, even fruit and you can buy fresh veggies right down the street.

This property is in a small Putnam County, FL community that is away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Enjoy relaxing in the quiet and peaceful setting by the St. Johns River.
Year Purchased: 2009
About the owner: My husband and I have been married 24 years this June and have two grown children who are both married and we now have three granddaughters - 7,3,2 yrs and a grandson 10 months. We enjoy spending our free time on the water in Welaka and the surrounding area if we aren't traveling elsewhere.
Why the Owner Chose Welaka: I grew up in Putnam County playing on and around the St. Johns River. It was just a natural choice when we were looking for a second home to escape to on the weekends. We love that it is close enough to the city to be able to get whatever we need but far enough away to feel like we have been transported in time to a slower paced life. It is genuinely a little piece of heaven!
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: We love that our unit is on the first floor and that we can walk right out the back door without fumbling with stairs or elevators. The unit is easily accessible from the front door or the back and we can sit and have dinner in the river room and watch the sun set, although the pool/tiki bar area is the best place to be to watch the beautiful sunset over the St. Johns river.
