This unique property is located on an Island in the St. John's River just South of Welaka Fl. The cabin is fully appointed and situated on a beautifully shaded river front lot which affords the opportunity to boat, fish, swim, waterski or just relax on the 40 foot porch and watch the river go by. The Ocklawaha River and Silver Glen, Salt and Juniper Springs are just a short trip by boat. A full service marina is just across the river and many dining and sightseeing opportunities including Sport bass guiding is available as well. Wildlife including deer are often seen on the Island along with aquatic birds and raptors.
Drayton Island was home to many Precolumbian Indians and has midden mounds and other traces of these early civilizations. If you don't own a boat one can be rented or you can drive your car on the island after crossing the ferry. Of course launch facilities and supplies are located conveniently on the Mainland.
Before making a payment, always call the owner at the number listed on our website to make sure your payment instructions are accurate.

While this is a rural area, there are other islanders with dogs that are unleashed. Dogs must be behaved and well adjusted to socializing with others. Excessive barking not acceptable. Wild animals and snakes do come out at night and alligators do roam the waters. Keeping a watchful eye on your pet and under control is key to enjoying yourself. Owner not responsible to mishaps or injuries that could occur in this environment....moreless

- Drayton Island is a unique experience for thoughs who want to experience old florida. Depending on the time of year, you can try your hand at fishing, shrimping, crabbing (bring your own traps) or even gator hunting (book that experience with Adam at Georgetown Marina Gator Hunting happens in August and September). If you're looking for a place to escape the cold weather from up North and want something different than tourists, concrete and sand, this may be just the place for you. Book the place for a month or more and If you want to take a drive on the mainland during the day, St. Augustine and some great east coast beaches are only 60 minutes away. You can explore Central Florida or the Palm Coast for the day by car and return to your hide away in the evening by boat. You'll have plenty of stories to tell your friends and family when you get home....moreless
