If you love nature and water this is the place. This spacious, clean, and newly renovated house is on a canal off of the Withlacoochie river, just a few minutes from the Gulf from boat or car. We're situated across from a preserve which offers plenty of privacy and hiking trails. Bring your boat and tie up to our private dock on a deep water canal or use the supplied kayaks (2) to explore the area waters. Wildlife abounds, it's truly amazing! . Yankeetown is quintessential Old Florida, and we're located in a nice quiet neighborhood.

Hi there!, We're Jim ane Ellen, and we bought this house a few years ago because we LOVE the water and fishing. This is truly paradise if that's what you like too. We're relatively new to VRBO but have found it to be such a rewarding experience so far. We have had nothing but positive experiences with our guests and look forward to hosting for many years to come. Our main goal is that you have a pleasant stay., and judging from our reviews our guests love it here! It's so nice that we get to share our house with people and let them see what the REAL Florida looks like. So quiet and beautiful, full of natural beauty. Paddle down the canal a short way and float down the Withlacoochie river and see how it looks as it did hundreds of years ago. Keep an eye out for the abundant wild life, especially the manatee and gators. If you LOVE fishing like we do, bring your boat and tie up to our dock or hire a guide for a day or half a day and have a blast. I'm sure you'll enjoy yourselves here and look forward to hosting your stay. We believe in letting people have their space and you probably won't even meet us face to face, but rest assured we are in constant contact if you need something or have a question.

Located in a quiet neighborhood, the house was nicely renovated and relaxing.
What a blessing! Loving the outdoors, we enjoyed all the local parks and trails. Many are tucked in and around the community. We also enjoyed sitting on the dock or in the back yard reading. There is a small beach just up the road which we enjoyed visiting observing dolphins playing, manatee slowly cruising, otter checking out the crab traps, and even a small gator cruising through the still water. If you enjoy fishing, be sure to bring your gear. The mullet were jumping thoughout the canal! The kitchen was well stocked for cooking. We opted to eat at home for the majority of our meals. For those that wish to eat out, there were a few restaurants in close proximity with chain restaurants in nearby communities. We thoroughly enjoyed our time at this house and look forward to staying again!
Neat - and very clean - very nice place
3rd place ive stayed in yankeetown on a canal - 1st with a good dock for my 23 ft boat. 1st that actually had a fish cleaning table 1st that had a great mattress for me who has back issues - slept great ! 1st place with kayaks to use - my teen agers loved paddling around the canals . Fishing is on fire 🔥� in yankeetown - caught 66 trout sat and 4 keeper reds -kept 10 trout and 3 of the reds to eat - released the rest had only 5 shrimp left out of 300 and was back at the dock by 3:30 ! Great trip ! Ps be sure to try the black water grill & bar on riverside - 2 min away - excellent food & drinks !
Thanks Shane. Yes, fishing is on fire. Our last guest caught a 25" large mouth bass, FROM THE DOCK! A BEAST!!!
Take care and come back soon
Situated on a deep canal with easy access to fishing and wildlife.
Very comfortable house, nicely renovated, lovely yard and dock.
Owner is very accommodating. Thanks for a great week for our family.
It was a pleasure having your family back again. As always your welcome back anytime.
The most relaxing vacation we have ever had.
Jim's rental was wonderful. From the moment we walk in the door we felt like we were home. It is such a quiet neighborhood which was a welcome contrast from our usual stays in hotels. All we needed to provide was our food or it was a short drive to area restaurants if you don't want to cook. Jim was a great host and if we had any questions he quickly replies. We would not hesitate to stay here again.
Beautiful home and spot for some quiet relaxation. Saw 6 manatees by the dock the first morning. Did some kayaking with the kayaks there and that was great. House is clean and well appointed. Jim was great and provided information easily. Thanks!
Lovely, comfortable home. Jim was responsive and helpful. I would definitely recommend if you’re interested in a quiet, nature-filled vacation.
If you enjoy the water this is the place. Fishing and boating are the main attractions here. Yankeetown is old Florida at its finest. Its a slow pace and relaxation kind of place
