This is the perfect place to escape, relax, enjoy the REAL Florida and all its wildlife.

Lafayette Blue Springs State Park 1/4 mile down river, numerous natural springs nearby. Just 30 miles from the Gulf Coast beaches. 25 miles to Spirit of the Suwannee Music park. 30 miles to Steinhatchee. 35 Miles to the Ichetucknee River State Park for tubing on a crystal clear spring-fed river. This area is a diver's paradise!

45 Miles to Wild Adventures Amusement and Water Park - awesome rides, water park and live music shows included in ticket price. Loads of fun without the crowds and traffic of Central Florida theme parks.

The Cottage is completely furnished and has recently been renovated with new carpet and ceramic tile. Bring your food and fishing pole. There is a boat launch within one mile. We have two canoes and a kayak on site, with paddles and life vests. This is a great get away for couples or active families! The interior is nicely decorated.
