Property description

The Shuck Shack is a 2br. 1.5 bath house with 1 king bed and 3 single beds and a sleeper sofa. There is also floor space for an airbed to sleep 2-4 more. The Shack is 1.3 miles down a dirt road and surrounded by woods. It's great for birding, sipping coffee on the front porch while enjoying boats parading up and down the Steinhatchee River, jumping in your boat and heading to the Gulf, socializing with special people, a quiet romantic weekend away from it all or partying or all of the foregoing. The Shack is not where you will find a fitness center, swimming pool (we swim in the river), room service or near by shopping. You'll have everything you need and all of life's basic comforts. It is perfect for a water filled holiday and much more.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: My wife and I bought this nice little place because we love to fish and scallop and just be in or near the water. We love that it is nestled in the woods at the end of 150 acres, loaded with many different birds and wildlife. We live and work in Jacksonville, and it is a 2 1/2 hr drive for us to get to the shack.

Why the Owner Chose Steinhatchee:
If you like nature and the setting of an old Florida fishing area, than you will love it here. The house is located 2 miles from the mouth of the gulf. There is a boat ramp almost directly across the river, also 3 other ramps in the area. The Shack is clean, comfortable and equipped with everything you need. It is rustic, not fancy but perfect for whatever you have in mind. The dock on the Steinhatchee River is ready for your boat. Once you visit the Shack you will want to return.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love seeing a wide variety of birds and wildlife. We have seen otters, turkey, eagles, owls, hawks, bobcats, manatees and a few species of snakes (mostly non-poisonous). You can drink your coffee on the screened porch and enjoy a parade of boats of folks heading to the flats.
