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:

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.

This was our second trip here. This time we took Mom and stepdad for mothers day weekend.they loved it as much as we do. A quiet and luxurious cabin nestled in the woods on a bend of the Suwannee river. The home is so well kept that it looks like it is newly built, right down to the furniture. It gives me great ideas for decorating my own home. Its so peaceful hearing the birds singing and the humongous sturgeon belly flopping in the river. This place will slow your rate down and make you live longer. The small towns nearby are great to visit and to search for decorating treasures. The evening brings a new light with the wild night life of animals and creatures that you could never hear in the city. I love going here, and will go again
