Steinhatchee is famous for scalloping. Scallop season is July & August and the town is jumping with activity. People come from all over the country to participate in this great family sport. Scallops are found in waist high waters and can be obtained by snorkeling or sometimes simply reaching down and gathering by hand. Fishing is also very popular and tourniments offered throughout the season. Hunters enjoy their season and this too is a very popular sport. Enjoy the river by canoe, Kayak or boat and experience the small town atmosphere and beauty of the Steinhatchee River. Steinhatchee falls provides a tranquil backdrop for a cooling swim in the clear waters.

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2005

About: Born and raised in Massachusetts, moved to South Florida in 1989 and raised our family in Jupiter Farms, My husband and I moved back to MA. last year to take over the family farm, with a goal of continuing the vacation rental business by opening a B & B in our 350 year old farm house in Essex, Ma. The Friendship House was purchased in 2005, with hopes of a retirement home. However, when the housing economy declined, and the country went into a recession, our retirement was delayed and we have continued to rent the Friendship House as a vacation rental.

Why Steinhatchee:
While living in South Florida we heard about a quaint town that on the northern west coast of Florida. I heard about this place several times, but did not remember the name of the Town.. Finally, we put things together found out it was Steinhatchee, FL. that we wanted to experience. And the rest is history - once you experience Steinhatchee, it is obvious that you want to stay.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Comfortable, clean, inviting, warm, serene, peaceful, loving attention to detail, pets welcome, private dock on the river, close to town but just beyond the busy seasonal crowds.
