Suwannee River cottage description

West of Gainesville Florida, on the banks of the historic Suwannee River you will find 'The Cottages of Suwannee Preserve'. This is the only availble cottage to rent on the river in the Preserve. The Preserve is a pristine 'park-like' setting full of outdoor fun activities.

Stay in a fully furnished luxury private home, on acres of woodlands along a pristine river bank.

Our home is a spacious 3 bedroom (two master bedrooms), 3 bathroom. A very comfortable home with a 'Cottage' and 'River' theme, with the following amenities:

State of the art water treatment system

Crown molding and 5 inch baseboards

9 foot ceiling throughout

Tile floors in living room, dining room, kitchen and all baths

All General Electric appliances

Hunter Douglas window treatments

Two 39' HD flat screens (one in Master Bedroom) with Direct TV 'Whole House HDDVR' System and an upgraded access package including Local Station access, Sony Blue-ray player & VCR player and enhanced sound systems.

2 porches - One Screened for bug free dining, the other an open sundeck

The Cottage is centrally located on Florida’s Nature Coast, situated on acres of property in a park like setting on the Suwannee River. Enjoy all that the Suwannee River, area springs and pristine countryside have to offer with such activities as fishing, scuba diving, snorkeling, swimming, tubing, water slides, zip lining, karaoke, hiking, bird watching, bicycling, clay shooting and horseback riding. There are also plenty of antique shops nearby!
The area has the highest concentration of freshwater springs on earth, with two major rivers (the Suwannee and Santa Fe) forming the northern and western boundaries of Gilchrist County, and over 60 springs within or adjacent to the county.

It's easy to see why the peace and tranquility of this site is perfect for a vacation 'get away'. An escape for you to do as little or as much as you want. Start daydreaming about how you will spend you days and create personal and family memories at the Cottages of Suwannee Preserve.
