About Michael Woodruff
From Valdosta Ga. and purchased as a second home to go offshore fishing. Also enjoy fishing the river and inshore fishing along with scalloping. The home makes a great get away to relax and enjoy the many water and non water activities or simply spend time relaxing. Community does not have one stop light. I find many of the same renters coming back each year along with new ones as well, including a couple of monthly renters from the Northern area. They tell me the house is always immaculate and kept freshly decorated and the location is the best. Give us a try and see how you like it.
Michael Woodruff purchased this House in 2005
Why Michael Woodruff chose Steinhatchee
One of the best areas in Steinhatchee and property is located only 10 minutes via boat to the Gulf (no wake ride). Yard is fenced in offering landscaping, private dock and floating dock to park your boat (boats up to 22 ft with no hard top). Dock is excellent area to relax and cook out. There is a fish cleaning station on the dock. Also have dockage available directly on river for any size boat. Home offers a large screened in porch and the master bedroom has a King size bed and a comfortable loveseat to relax while watching TV and has a private porch overlooking the canal with a bistro set to enjoy a cup of coffee or your favorite beverage.. House is fully equipped with all amenities. Very clean, immaculate and furnished/decorated nicely.
What makes this House unique
Nature fully exposed with river, wildlife, Gulf and beautiful sunsets! Several state parks are only a few miles drive to spend the day. The small community is blessed to have a Grocery store, several convenience stores and a Dollar General. If you need a charter for any water activity, they are always available and at great rates. Also you will find many locals who are ready to clean your catch of the day, from inshore, offshore fish and scallops. There are several great landmark restaurants located within a mile of our house. Several full service marinas to launch your boat or get fuel and bait/ice. Also available are rentals for boats, Kayaks and Golf carts so you can fully enjoy your vacation. Night time is always an adventure with a couple of local hot spots usually offering live bands and/or karaoke and the location is close or on the water with outside Tiki style bars. My property is surrounded by nature that encompasses large Oak trees, Cypress trees and many other natural elements great for exploring or photography.

Clean, spacious, comfortable; great property!
Our stay at Michael’s home was wonderful! Right from the beginning, communication with Michael was prompt, friendly, and informative. The house is more spacious than I thought and had plenty of room for our group which consisted of 5 adults and a toddler. The covered porch was an excellent spot for our daughter to play comfortably and for all of us to unwind. The master bedroom is huge and has plenty of room for small children to sleep on the couch in the room, on the floor or to put up a portable crib. The DVD collection was great and had a variety of choices from baby to adult genres. The house isn’t fancy but it is nicely decorated and immaculately clean; what more could you want in a house when you’ve been out fishing or scalloping all day?! We utilized Michael’s neighbor’s boat slip down the road and that was great. It was a little farther away than I initially thought (maybe a 1/2 mile from his house) so we decided to drive rather than walk (mainly because we were toting a toddler and all of our boat goodies, but walking is definitely doable!), but there was plenty of room to leave our vehicle down there and it absolutely beat fighting with the crazy boat ramp crowds each day! The location of the house was great; less than 2 minutes to the “heart” of Steinhatchee and close to a restaurant, ice cream shop, Dollar General, etc. Overall this was a great property and I would highly recommend it!
Beautiful and secluded
Very pleasant stay in a secluded hideaway on a canal just around the corner from the Marinas and restaurants.
Nice comfy place! Enjoyed our stay and would go back again.
Would recommend this place to others. Close to everything.
Thank you for the nice comments. I welcome you back any time and thanks for being great guests!

Thanks for choosing my property for a quick get away. It was a pleasure having you as my guests and furthermore are very good stewards of the property. I look forward to having you back!
Awesome house in a private area of town. Would recommend to anyone. Michael was a great host.
Clean, spacious, relaxing!
This was our second year staying at this house. The house is an amazing place to come home to after a long day of scalloping! Loved the outdoor grill and relaxing on the back deck! Bugs were put in the evening, but there were three citronella candles that helped out. The front, screened in porch was also a nice spot to relax, and it kept the bugs out! The house was nice and spacious. There were theee couches in the living room. Plenty of room to lounge and relax! Nice kitchen to cook dinner in. Clean linens and towels provided. Overall, very happy once again!
Thank you for staying at my property again and great renters. I look forward to having you guys again.
Steinhatchee Florida attracts thousands of visitors throughout the year. Most are returning visitors who actually live on the Atlantic side. Depending the time of year determines fishing laws that can be found on the Florida Wildlife website. Many visitors come to stay either all summer or winter or for an extended period of time to enjoy this quaint and pristine town with no red lights. The community is golf cart friendly but laws do apply. The town is best known for its fishing both fresh and salt water (inshore and offshore). Of course SCALLOP SEASON is considered the PEAK SEASON. Steinhatchee River offers great Kayaking, fishing, bird watching, or simply enjoying Florida's Forgotten Coast. Photography is popular due to the overall ambiance of the area. There is a Dollar General and small Grocery store (for larger shopping, Walmart is in Perry FL, about 40 miles away) . Several nice sit down restaurants, fast food like Hungry Howies with riverside dining, Subway, a homemade ice cream parlor and a delicious BBQ stand, Skullyz. .For later nights there are a few night clubs and bars. In addition, Steinhatchee had several Marinas and boat ramps for public use. We are located less than a mile to a boat ramp. If your boat is 20-21 ft long and does not have a hard top or a very high windshield, you can hop on your boat from our dock that is on a deep water tidal canal. Several hundred yards away you will be on the Steinhatcee River and a very short boat ride to the Gulf. Along the way are several Marina's for bait, ice, supplies, purchase fishing license and of course gas. There is also a full service marina that offers boat repair. Perry Florida is only 40 miles away offering many of your big box stores and chained restaurants.
